My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Who am I in reality? I don't know the answer to that question but it's certainly worth examining. I like existentialism because it's concerned primarily with the kind of navel gazing everyone should engage in - moderately.

I love being outdoors. Despite my NY affectations, I am still a product of the tree-lined freeways of Puget Sound. If you've never seen a mountain west of the Mississippi then you haven't seen a mountain. (Unless you've been to the Himalayas or something, in which case we should talk.)

If you like "Slacker" and the Mountain Goats, well, we might just have something there.

I read and I write.

I try to push the limits of how "intense" one can be without being "intimidating."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a grad student in journalism at nyu and I write whenever possible. I love to write about things like politics, books, and mass incarceration.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Speaking and relating to Chinese or other sinophones. Writing premature memoirs. Putting my foot in my mouth - or having someone put it there for me.

I love taking pictures. I find that there are so many elements involved in making a photo work: light of course but also composition and so many choices one has to make on the fly.
The first things people usually notice about me

That I'm either under- or overdressed for any occasion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What is the most important event in my life that I've totally forgotten?

Is this the way the world ends? I think about politics a lot. Sometimes I feel like the whole world has gone crazy. Then I remember that a) I'm not alone in feeling this and b) there are more profound realizations I could be having.

Is there such a thing as social/economic justice and, if so, is it not our duty to pursue it?

The global south.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Taking back the night. Drinking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In third grade we had to run little proto-capitalist booths. Mine was a psychiatric clinic. I had to admit three patients and did not accept insurance.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have an east coast intelligence and west coast sensibilities.

I'm looking for a real relationship; something lasting and monogamous.

“The real marriage of true minds is for any two people to possess a sense of humor or irony pitched in exactly the same key, so that their joint glances on any subject cross like interarching search-lights.”
