My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm originally from Seattle, WA, and after graduating with a B.A. in General Chemistry, I wanted to start to see the rest of the country, if not the world. So about three years ago I moved to Boston.

I like to think I'm a pretty fun person. I love to make jokes, and tell stories... I'm pretty sure I'll make a good old person! I enjoy playing tennis, basketball, one of the biggest sports fans you'll find, reading, writing, journaling, poetry (if those are all different somehow), hiking, learning new things is it's own addiction (seriously wikipedia is a bad invention for me!) and photography.

I'm a bit of dooffus, but if anything I know I'm a good person... so there's that!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
This upcoming year I'll be teaching HS Chemistry, math, and ELL at a HS in North Boston. It was actually fulfilling to be able to increase that 'Income' slider... plus say it with me "Medical Coverage!!!" I love my job!!!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm not really good at too many things. I'm one of those people that is pretty average at everything he does. I try really hard though, and always enjoy doing it! And even though I may believe I am only 'average,' somehow I seem to have a knack for impressing others (so maybe I don't give myself enough credit). Though that might seem bad to some people, I like to think that it means that I don't completely suck at anything either.

I'm pretty dedicated to being optimistic. I have my moment of brooding (privately) when appropriate, but it doesn't last long, and usually re-affirms my outlook. I have learned that it does take effort to be that way, I think... so long as you also take a realistic approach to it.

People always tell me that I'm a pretty calming presence, or that I handle stress really well. Just like optimism takes effort, I think this does (or maybe they go hand-in-hand). Probably also why I'm told I'm a good listener, and problem solver...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A lot of people try and guess what I'm mixed with... besides black I mean.

Some people notice that I have purple colors all throughout my left eye. It's actually really funny when people notice it, how their mannerisms change in that moment... haha! Some people actually show concern for me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book(s): Joy Luck Club, All the Things I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten... Both books changed my life! I read them both every year. I think I just love books that teach me lessons, help me appreciate things in my own life, or remind me to.

Movies: Joy Luck Club (if I decide to watch it, instead of read the book for that year. A truly amazing movie! One of the few times where the movie is better than the book)...
Chick-flick: I appreciate the genre, Serendipity (if I happen to watch Definitely, Maybe this changes... vice-versa)... No Nicholas Sparks!!! (I seriously think he makes movies because he hates me, exception: Walk to Remember... but yet I still watch them.)
Action: The Rock (if people remember that old N. Cage movie)
Big Big Big comic book fan. I like to get my nerd on when possible.
I like too many movies.

Shows: Gilmore Girls, ER!!, Everwood, Parenthood, Naomily (just them, I don't really care for the other characters... oh, and Katie Fitch), Modern Family, The Office, Friday Night Lights, Grey's, Switched at Birth (for the ASL), Bones, Revenge, Vampire Diaries (I know), Happy Endings. My sister says that I need to start confessing to liking Lost Girl...

I watch a lot of TV shows. I really love the references in them. It helps feed my learning/wikipedia addiction. No reality TV (except Project Runway and Top Chef are competitions to me)! I once fantasized that I'd write an episode of something one day.

Music: Hip Hop, OldSchool (Motown variety). Common, Wale, Mos Def, Kanye, Jay Z, Arrested Development (the hip/hop group, not the show), Mase, Black Eyed Peas (pre-Elephunk), B.O.B., The Temptations!!, Sam Cooke, Sinatra, David Ruffin, EarthWindFire, BoyzIIMen, A Fine Frenzy, The National, Glen Hansard, Linkin Park, Paramore, Florence + Machine, Susie Suh, Justin Hines, etc. Ed Sheeran has been one of my favorite discoveries of 2012. I will say that I usually like less than 50% of the songs on VH1 Countdown at any time. I'm into just about any form of music. Weird things too, like Celtic, bollywood, clog dancing, etc).

Two genres that I haven't been exposed to, and would love to get more of is: Country and Classic Rock.

Food: Love all kinds of food... But I love Cereal, stuff is like candy, but good for you. 3 things I hate to eat: Avocados, Oysters, mushrooms.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Music: saved my life a few times over
2. Laptop: I really do feel like I'm strapped to this thing sometimes... sad I know
3. Laughter: I think that's where my optimism and enjoyment comes from. It's a very versatile ally.
4. Family: Which actually makes living all the way on the other side a bit difficult at times, especially during the holidays
5. My Right Hand: Seriously, my left-hand is super useless.
6. Internet: This really does facilitate my nerd cravings... and it keeps informed of all of the new science and political news.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about things in the world. I'm one of those people who looks at issues and tries to figure out where exactly I stand on that particular issue. An actual debate usually follows. I always imagine that the fly on my wall must think I'm a bit crazy. I swear it's only when I'm by myself... it's how my thoughts work themselves out the best though! I really do enjoy thinking about things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
You can usually find me in my house somewhere catching up on Pop-TV culture of some kind, or surfing the internet for random things that I'm sure is unimportant to other people. I seriously do spend too much time on this.

Although not really different than most people, but I don't really go to social places by myself (bars, clubs, etc). With that being said I do try and find one cool place/thing to go/do each week. I'm open to doing just about anything though, and love painting the town (preferably purple, if you got it!). I'm pretty easy to amuse... especially if I'm with someone.

Most recently, this summer, I've started putting together a youtube channel... mostly to keep my family/friends updated back home:

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not really secretive about things in my life. I kind of live by the "Ask me a question, I'll tell you no lies" kind of thing. If you hit a topic that I'm not comfortable with I'll tell you that I'm uncomfortable... ask again, I'll usually tell you anyways. My life isn't that secretive, plus I'd like to think there isn't a detail of my life I'm not proud of, or something that I couldn't explain in a way that makes me sound like a sane person, at least.

I guess I should actually put something 'private' here...

My favorite Color is Purple!!!! I do think males who like purple have a unique 'bond' with their color, that's different than other people's.

My favorite animal is a Manatee.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Bravo if you got this far... haha (sadly, the rambling won't end)

So since moving to Boston I haven't really gotten to experience much of the city or meet many people. I would love to spend some time doing both, maybe even find someone special in the process... and doing anything with someone is always a plus! ... so send me a message.

I realize this isn't a Meetup... and sadly, the tennis season is slowly coming to a close... but if anyone happens to want to play tennis... this would make me happier than it probably should. Anyways, it's as good of a reason as any to get together.
