Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Protagonist, solipsist, and pirate philosopher bohemian secret
agent feminist in training, on a mission to rescue people from the
wholesome clutches of the pious backstabbing girl Fridays of the
world. (not really)
I'd say I'm really into science and the arts and humanities. I love
travel. I love intellectual things. I love humor and take barely
anything seriously. I am now lifting weights all the time (again).
I'm about as non-religious as you can get, but I grew out of my
Richard Dawkins phase a while ago. I live for new experiences. My
favorite color is orange.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do research in philosophy of science (neuroscience &
psychology). It's super competitive, this kind of work, so I work
pretty hard. ~I've been published~. I almost did a Masters
in Women's Studies instead.
In my so-called free time I like to travel and do things
impulsively (see: the personality tab). I went to Hungary a couple
months ago, looking forward to Montpellier the next summer. Another
strategically placed academic conference, funded by Your Tax
Dollars... I'd like to spend some more time in eastern Europe, and
I just moved here from Canada. Yep, they call Mac &
Cheese "Kraft Dinner" up there. I'm "outdoorsy" and say "toque." I
appear super polite by American standards.
edit: Now I've been here awhile. Not gonna update mah stuffs
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm either very loud or very quiet or not paying attention or
smiling suspiciously or offensively (apparently).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books. I read lots of non-fiction. Lots of
philosophy and science. If Michel Foucault, or Simone de Beauvoir's
The Second Sex ring any bells, we will probably get along
quite well. If not, also probably. I get along with everyone.
Movies. Incendies, La Haine, Averroes (really
boring), District 9, I don't know. Sex and Lucia. I miss
black-and-white foreign film nights. Shows.
Childrens Hospital. The Office, a while ago. I don't really watch
TV any more, there is no time. (except for Colbert, my hero.) I
watched Breaking Bad though. Music.
Food. I like to try new foods. Indian food is my
favorite kind, but who's counting really. If spicy is an option, I
usually get it too spicy, and no I do not regret it,
ever. Freud can tell you more about what that means, and
my dreams about bears. I could easily go vegetarian again.
For food and anything else, my attitude is to try to enjoy or find
pleasure in it. Enjoyment is a skill, after all.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I do much wonder that one man, seeing how much another man is a
fool when he dedicates his behaviors to love, will, after he hath
laughed at such shallow follies in others, become the argument of
his own scorn by falling in love: and such a man is Claudio.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Writing, reading, drinking and talking about philosophy, or not
about philosophy, or not exactly talking, with new people, or
catching up on sleep or trying to.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My dark and secret past: I don't look like it, but I was a
high school goth. Yep, my formative years. Spiked collars, black
everything, David Bowie, Tim Burton, Anne Rice and Rocky
Horror, and a matching attitude to go with it. There are some
interesting pictures of me forever preserved somewhere on the
Confession #2: I was also a pro video game player. Cool right? I
had sponsors and got flown a few places though, and had fans. I
know what it's like to resent small talk from strangers because of
the inevitable request to join or do something. Also got some sweet
level 60 world firsts in World of Warcraft.
