My self-summary
I'm a quiet, serious fellow; a deep thinker. I'm a good listener and friend. Occasionally I'm quite funny.

If you ever think you actually want to go on a date, you're going to have to be pretty explicit. I don't pick up on hints.

I'm interested in languages, even though the only language I know besides English is a little bit of German. I spent 8 weeks this summer studying Latin 10 hours a day. It wasn't fun, but I think it's good to push oneself. I dream of finding a way to travel the world.

I don't warm up to people easily. I'm usually incredibly uncomfortable for the first couple dates. Small talk is tough for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating. I am among the world's foremost experts on the subject. I'll explain in more detail later.

I am quite talented at reading, thinking, and impersonating Gollum, Sean Connery, and a generic English gentlemen. Also doodling.

Linguistics is an interest of mine.

Humor.
Transubstantiation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics and history and religion and anything else you're not supposed to discuss at dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Contemplating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once had a toad named Fred.

I know a house one enters blind and leaves seeing.
You should message me if
Any of the following apply:

The name of Siegfried's sword is known to you.

You know why down was originally up.

You don't mind someone swearing by his pretty floral bonnets.

Hylomorphism appeals to you.

You can distinguish between procedere as both proienai and ekporeuesthai.

You feel that there is something wrong with people who are not at all depressed by modern living.
