Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Jonathan, I'm from Denton, TX, which was recently rated
the best small town in America! And no, you don't have to pretend
to care about that. But if you ever happen to visit, beware. You
will wind up staying for at least four years and you will love it
and not want to leave. You're welcome.
I'm mostly introverted, I'm a book worm with a bohemian bend, and I
tend to be carefree (i.e., no shits are given...usually). I hope
you could manage to find these traits endearing rather than
I'd much rather be participating in a hippie drum circle or a book
club than hanging out at the local gay bar. Sorry not sorry.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just got out of a six-year graduate program and I have no idea
what to do with myself. It's been awhile since I've seen the sun or
anything other than a textbook or manual of some sort. I'm trying
to use this time to get in touch with the fun and kind person that
I used to be before grad school.
In other words, I'm not really sure. I'm here to do my postdoc and
hopefully make some good friends and experiences along the way
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Tennis on hot days, shooting pool after three beers, darts after
I'm drunk, and finding awesome antique furniture to clutter up my
house. Also, if there is a trivia game, you definitely want me on
your team unless the category is sports. I'm also good at being
loyal. If we become friends, then it's likely for a lifetime.
Enough about me. How are you?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My bozo hair. You'll either love it or hate it, and since I was
meant to be born in the 60s, I haven't made plans to cut it.
You might also notice my dog. He's an old english sheepdog named
Walter, and he's very playful, sometimes to his detriment.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Embarrassing stories - mine or yours
2. Laughing at myself and at you. People who reek of
self-importance, you have been warned
3. All of my friends
4. An interesting travel itinerary
5. A good book and a strong cup of coffee
6. An escape plan
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
