Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a nice shark, not a mindless eating machine. If I am to change
this image, I must first change myself. Fish are friends, not
In short, I'm very tall. I play a few instruments. Other than that,
pretty typical college student. Sports, books, music, drinking,
etc... I'm a huge Arsenal fan. I'm hoping to be able to travel to
London within the next couple of years to go to a match. I also
love going to Braves games. I grew up playing baseball, so getting
to go to games was pretty much the highlight of my childhood.
I love being outdoors. Camping and hiking are two of my favorite
things. I'm looking to get into backpacking this fall.
I'm very book smart, but common sense occasionally eludes me.
I have a cat named Ianto who I'm horribly allergic to, but I didn't
realize that until after I got him, and we're bros now, so I can't
get rid of him.
I own space-themed footed pajamas. They're the greatest thing
Oh, and I have a Feynman diagram tattooed on my forearm. It's not
my only tattoo, but it's my newest, and also the most fun
explaining to people, mainly because of their reactions.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
SCIENCE! I'm a student at CSU studying geology with a minor in
I'm a research assistant on a geologic mapping project with my
^Well that project is pretty much over now, so I can officially
tell people I'm a musician when they ask how I make a living.
I'm graduating in December and enrolling in graduate school in
I'm dipping my toe into the music industry as well. It's what I'm
most passionate about, so I'd love to be able to make a living
doing it. I'm a singer-songwriter that writes serious songs as well
as a few funny ones here and there. I wrote this song about online
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Guitar, writing, singing, making you laugh at completely
Actually, I'm pretty much good at everything, though my knitting
skills are severely lacking.
That was a joke.
I'm an amazing knitter.
So was that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that I'm much taller than they are.
Or the beard. It's majestic.
Also, I exude awesomeness. It's pretty hard to miss.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Princess Bride used to be my favorite book. I just
finished A Song of Ice and Fire. Well, at least what's been written
so far. It's so amazing. A Storm of Swords is far and away the best
book I've ever read.
Movies: "For anyone who hasn't seen the SyFy original movie,
Sharknado; it's a heart-warming, coming of age story about a ragtag
group of sharks uprooted from their home by mother nature's fury.
The sharks must band together and overcome adversity and strife
while trying, desperately, to make their way back to the only home
they've ever known. Battling chainsaw wielding humans and B-list
actors trying, desperately, to throw themselves into the displaced
sharks' mouths every chance they get. If you love sharks and
tornadoes, well...now you don't have to choose! Do yourself a favor
and see this one before the Oscars! Sharknado is, truly, the
cinematic experience of a lifetime."
TV: Lots of British stuff. If it's on BBC, I've probably seen it.
Game of Thrones is obviously great. The IT Crowd. Arrow is pretty
Music: I've been primarily listening to folk-type music lately, but
I like a large range of stuff. Show tunes are fun. I like the "Punk
Goes _____" albums more than is probably socially acceptable. I
love going to concerts. I'm happy seeing anyone anywhere, whether
it's indie pop or folk artists at small venues or rock legends in
arenas and amphitheaters.
Food: I love trying new cuisines, but I have a soft spot for just
about anything Asian (especially Thai and Korean).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
People who make me laugh
anything outside at all. I hate being cooped up in the house.
Tea. Earl Gray. Hot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What asshole decided to put the letter 's' in the word 'lisp'
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't know that I have 'typical Friday nights,' but it's
generally a toss up between camping, going out, or watching Netflix
with my cat.
I've been going to No Shame a lot lately. You may know me by my
stage name, "The Big Fucking Geologist." BFG for short.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I thought the How I Met Your Mother finale was perfect.
Also, I love musicals.
