My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I wish I knew why things are the way they are. I find the world around me both fascinating and yet rather puzzling. I don't know quite what to make of it, and I'm not sure I'm making much progress in grasping its workings. I'm not sure if this justifies my existence as a Ph.D student, or provides a really good argument for getting out of my Ph.D program.

I suppose to distract from the inanity of the world around me, I like adventures. Running, biking, swimming (yes, I do triathlons), and just seeing new places. By the way, if anyone who is reading this knows how to kitesurf, please message me--I really want to learn. Really really really want to learn.

I also have a strong sarcastic streak about me. I'm fairly good at knowing when to butt in and provide some witty remark, although this sometimes gets me into trouble if people don't know me too well. I once suggested to someone who does health work in Kenya that she should visit the hospital where President Obama was born--it took her a little while to pick up on my intentions.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Surviving graduate school (ie. studying a lot). And reading books and baking cookies--both have their own delights.

I also try to get outside. I do actually get outside. That's a great thing about North Carolina--there are still plenty of places to hike, bike, and swim where I won't see too many people, and get to reconnoiter with nature.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding cheap airline tickets--I wrote an ebook about this back in the day. (You weren't expecting that, were you?)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm often quiet in social settings and I usually don't get noticed until I make some pointed joke. So probably some bit of sarcastic social commentary is what ends up getting noticed first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: White Teeth (it's not about dentistry, despite being asked about this on an airplane once), Catch 22, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and Twilight in the Desert are a few of my favorite books across genres.

TV shows: The Simpsons, Arrested Development, The Office

Food: Indian food. That's not to say there's anything wrong with Thai food, Chinese food, or Mediterranean food, but Indian food is really the best.

Music: Celtic music, for the most part. I'm trying to gather as many versions of the tune Calliope House at the moment.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My computer
A good book (a recent issue of The Economist might be an appropriate substitute)
Ice cream
Mint tea
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My research, unfortunately. But also where to hike or travel in the future (I do have a life!) I always have plenty of good ideas for trips floating around--just not the time nor the money to take all of them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a movie or baking something. I bake really good cookies, according to other people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am one of the three people in America who actually has a Discover Card. Yes, I am pretty sure that there are only three of us.
