My self-summary
Proudly:
-Liberal
-Atheist
-Feminist
-INTJ

-My favorite section is the books, music and movies part. I'm confused as to what couples are even supposed to do if they can't geek out over the same stuff together, and nothing turns me off faster than seeing someone who can't be passionate or honest about what they like.

-Also, I grew up around people that didn't share my interests. As a result, I don't tend to openly broadcast my interests (although I am passionate and honest about what I like and think). If you want to get to know me, ask me questions. You can count on me returning the favor.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to convince baby boomers I'm a mature adult and trying to convince other millennials I'm hip.

I'm in the middle of a two year grad program and working at a fantastic non-profit in the loop. I just moved into Humboldt Park (or is it Logan Square?) and looking forward to getting to know the city and meet some new people.
I’m really good at
Logic and puzzles
Reaching things on the top shelf
Deconstructing and analyzing things

I'm taking piano lessons to learn jazz and improvization, but I wouldn't say I'm really good at that yet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
-Favorites books include The Name of the Wind, Lois Lane: Fallout, Redwall, Dinotopia, Carl Sagan's "Demon Haunted World", the Kitchn Cookbook

-I'm reading a lot more comics lately. More Marvel than DC. Love the recent push for diversity.

Movies:
-There's too much to put down, but here's a good representation of my taste in movies:
Citizen Kane
Ghostbusters
Wes Anderson
Hayao Miyazaki / Ghibli
Disney
Pixar
Marvel
Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Akira Kurosawa

Television:
-I don't watch lot but when I do my tastes are typical nerd stuff: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Walking Dead, Firefly, Avatar, anime, etc. Pretty much everything you'd expect when you hear the word "geek" or "nerd"

Music:
I think we're all past the point where we're judging each other's worth by music tastes. My tastes are eclectic and if you want to show me yours I will show you mine.
The six things I could never do without
A wide selection of tea.

Movie nights.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Do aliens exist and does it really make any difference if they do?

(Probably not and no, imo. Care to disagree?)

The election. I spend way too much thinking about politics and it makes me sad.

The deep deep mystery that is the origin of bread. Did it first have to be observed occurring naturally or did some genius have the creativity and inspiration to invent it?
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights I'm usually taking in a movie, or enjoying a quiet night at home with a good book or some video games. Sometimes I also go out with friends.
You should message me if
We share some of the same geeky interests.

You can accept the fact that I think Superman is better than Batman.

You're also excited Ms. Marvel is a muslim, Thor is a woman, Captain Marvel is getting a movie (eventually) and Squirrel Girl is a thing.
