Mostly anything

My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm silly, sometimes stoic, endlessly curious and kind. I love riddles and hefty books, and I have a smokin' lexicon. I tend to overtip.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Back in Manhattan after a stint in Syracuse for grad school. So very excited to be here.

I'm glad to be back, but sometimes long to grab a single suitcase and go run around Argentina or the Galapagos or Thailand for two weeks. When I was a kid I wanted to be an astronaut (actually went to Space Camp for real), and that desire for exploration hasn't ever gone away. That being said, there's a hell of a lot to explore in NYC.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading really, really fast. Empathy. Slack-jawed wonder at cool science videos. Solving puzzles, speaking in a pretty passable French accent, speaking in a terrible British accent, eating the icing last, pondering pondering. Grammar.

Alternating between dry wit and nonsensical goofiness.

Genuine interest in those around me.
The first things people usually notice about me

I have giant blue eyes. Also a very distinctive walk--I strut through life!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Introspection
2. Moments of pure unadulterated goofiness
3. Friends and fam--trite but true
4. The "aha!" moment
5. iPad while traveling: so many books in so little space! (seven-year-old me would be so jealous)
6. The gym--I've really gotten into working out in the last 6 months, and it's been incredibly gratifying.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Puzzles. Games, mysteries, cryptography, intrigue, etc. I want to hear the music of the spheres. I'm hopeless.

The approximately seventy kabillion things I'm excited to try out upon my return to urbanity.

The weird mishmash of wonderful and horrible that is our world. What I can do to make things a little or a lot better.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably enjoying a low-key evening with a couple of friends, taking a night to myself, or sipping a glass of wine downtown. I tend to take board games and conversation over bar-hopping, though I have been known to Get Down, etc, upon occasion.

I have a fondness for anything surreal or way out of the ordinary, so I'm always on the lookout for shows/games/events that provide a little vacation from normal life (interactive theater, escape the room games, etc).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once danced on a bar in Cuzco, Peru, stone-cold sober.

I love antiques, anything with a sense of time and history. I recently bought a 1930's carriage clock, and am busying myself imagining its travels.

I aim to be skeptical, not cynical.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You maintain a sense of wonder in the face of everything that this crazy world brings. You know yourself, and are confident with the place you're progressing towards--or, at least, you're passionate to find out where that might be. Alternatively (or additionally), you want to learn about cryptography. Ah, the Vigenère cipher!
