Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About me. Hmm...I suppose this is where I'm supposed to sell
myself. Let me tell you a bit about myself instead.
I'm Joe. I live in Northwest Indiana, about 40 minutes out of
downtown Chicago. It's not too bad out here...I mean, it's hardly
fast paced excitement every minute, but there's room for a garden.
I consider that a plus.
I love science. I'm an engineering student, and I enjoy science
documentaries and just plain ol' science videos on Youtube. I also
love math. Does that make me a nerd? Probably. That's okay, nerds
I love music. I've been playing guitar since age 12, and have built
my own guitar amps and effects pedals. I actually work with a
couple of small builders to make their stuff better. It's kind of
I'm not the religious sort. It's okay if you are, just realize that
I won't ever be.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, there's school. It's pretty awesome, I love it.
Other than that, it depends on the day. I'm not afraid to dive into
anything that looks interesting. Electronics projects, books,
Netflix, mildly annoying my cats, checking out new restaurants in
the greater Chicagoland area, driving around looking for dark sky,
taking long road trips, meeting people, and otherwise just trying
to amuse myself.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Lots of stuff, after a little research and practice.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically? I've got a couple large tattoos on my arms, people tend
to notice those. I usually have some large and awesomely geeky
glasses in front of a pair of very blue eyes.

You mean this week?
Books: Well, as far as actual reading goes, besides the electronics
and mathematics texts I'm REQUIRED to read, I've been working on
"The Making of the Atomic Bomb" by Richard Rhodes. Other than that,
I've discovered the wonders of the Audiobook, and have been
absorbing books on Oppenheimer, Feynman, the X15, etc...I've been
bouncing back and forth between nuclear history and the space
program quite a bit lately.
So, I guess I could shorten that to "Primarily non-fiction with a
emphasis on science, engineering, or history. I do have a soft spot
for Kurt Vonnegut, Phillip K Dick, and the Harry Potter
I could probably further shorten that to "I'm a geek. I read what
TV: Archer is hilarious. I tend to quote the Simpsons quite a
Music: I'm a gigantic Bowie fan. I tend to consume just about
anything as far as music goes, with my tastes probably trending a
bit closer to Punk, Post Punk, and flat out noise.
Food: I love, love, love Indian food. Devon Ave is probably one of
my favorite places on earth. So much good Indian food. I also have
a soft spot for Chinese, Middle Eastern, and Mexican. I like good
food in general. I am not a picky eater.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Glasses...I'm unable to function without them. My Smartphone,
Computer, and Car are fairly high on this list.
As for what really matters, incredible people, both friends and
family, and time to spend with them.
I got rid of that freeloading appendix, those troublesome tonsils,
and the just in the way uvula.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics. Cats. Cats in politics?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My vice tends to be ethnic restaurants. Indian, Chinese, Korean,
Thai, Middle Eastern, etc...I'm always up
for finding something tasty.
