My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not really good at describing myself. I guess I'm-

???: It looks like you're trying to write an online dating profile. Would you like some help?

"Clippy?! I haven't seen you since 8th grade. "

Clippy: Where we used to crush essays!

"This is me trying to find love, not a dissection of whether Robert Frost is alluding to more personal fears than the apocalypse in 'Fire and Ice.'"

Clippy: As I recall, Ms. Dawzack was pretty hot and pretty impressed by that paper.

"Lead the way, clippy."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to-

Moving to Portland, four years ago, was-

Clippy: Present!

..stands as one the best decisions I have ever m-

Clippy:!

..best decisions... ever. Though it's not that competitive.

Clippy: Optimism!

I'm working in bankruptcies right now, which mostly seems recession proof. The need to defer blame to entry level fodder rather than systemic issues also protects against automation and offers job security as long as I remain good at blaming others for my problems.

Clippy: That's optimistic. Let's move on to other things you're good at. Very different things. Things which are not massive character flaws.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Generally speaking, I've got a pretty refined palette. The downside is I spend a lot of time focusing on the flaws in anything I work on. so it's tough to feel like I've really mastered anything.

Clippy: "Really good," is subjective. Interests and passions should be enough.

pool, cooking, trivia, meta-jokes

Clippy: Popular interests for your location include PBR, hallucinogens and yoga. Consider adding these to your list.

I am pretty good at PBR

Clippy: I said NOT character flaws. But I kind of led you into that one.

Yup, definitely on you.

Clippy: Did you know- proper citation of interviews an author has conducted off record require "personal communication," be listed as the source?

IJ is the top of my list-

Clippy: IJ?

"Infinite Jest, the definitive post modern novel."

Clippy: Pretentious

Bret Easton Ellis

Clippy: Insincere and pretentious. What about Vonnegut? Everyone loves Vonnegut.

Vonnegut (Assuming you understand "Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt," trumps "So it goes.")

Clippy: Urg. You trashed the only literary quote anyone knows. Congrats. What about movies?

Ghostbusters.

I feel like watching science triumph over a forgotten god set a tone for how I'd come to view the world later in life. The notion that things, no matter how strange or perilous are comprehensible, but our lives still require us to take risks when handling the-

Clippy: TV? You have one?!

The Wire, Breaking Bad, Hannibal, Louie,

Clippy: Rote.

Moral Orel season 3

Clippy: What? Even Tim Burton abandoned morose claymation. Should I just autocomplete "you probably haven't heard of it," for music?

As an upside to the Greece collapse I've been turned onto Koza Mostra. Mary Prankster and Alabama 3 are perennial favorites.

Clippy: So that's a yes?

When it comes to food Chris Bianco put it best, " You fuckin' fill in the blank, I love it."

Clippy: It's been awhile since you last saved your document. We could both pretend this never happened...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I. Intelligent conversation
    A. Creative outlets
        1. wait, Ctrl-Z
              a. it's a list not an outline!
                   ☻. What symbol is that?
II. A way of undoing autoformating
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Someday Facebook will aggregate your sense of nostalgia. It will compare how often and reverently you look back to how much you appreciate the now and what you look forward to. It will look at your data in relation to thousands of comparable lives and millions establishing a baseline. It will then tell you precisely how far behind you, your best days are.

Clippy: You could do the same thing in excel!

Goddamnit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Clippy: Leave one section blank to cultivate an air of mystery and express a cavalier attitude.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been consuming a lot of media about people who see themselves as broken or or are just fundamentally different from normal society. I tend to think a lot a good could come from accepting that with in oneself and shaking off a sense of normative claims for what society tells one to aspire to. And I mean more on a radical acceptance level rather than just not feeling the need to own a house and have a job in middle management.

Clippy: Like loving your friend who gives you handy formatting advice even though his idle animations incredibly annoying?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Clippy: Be honest about what you want in a partner.

You can help me upgrade from Windows 95.

Clippy: Really honest.

I get on well with people who majored in philosophy.

My favorite conversations start rational, plain even, and twist into absurdity with everyone involved being aware of the mistakes they're making, but without irony or sarcasm because there's a kernel of truth and self awareness in those mistakes.

I'm looking for sadists who want to torture metaphors together, intellectuals who can make it rain cultural capital, or anyone who just wants to "walk around and kick the tires of my mind."
