My self-summary
I just moved out to St. Louis for a year long internship position before I finish my doctorate. Most people get uncomfortable when you tell them you're in psychology. I get accused of "analyzing" people pretty often. The truth is, I think, most everyone is guilty of that more often that they care to admit. We're just better at it.

I'm not from the Midwest originally, but am warming to it. I like to explore, in both city and country. I get myself lost a lot, which is most of the fun. I follow Thoreau in thinking that you don't need to go halfway across the world to find meaning, beauty, or novelty.

I am trying to learn to be more handy. I recently purchased an old country-style dining room table and am in the process of stripping and refinishing it. Who says art cannot be functional?

If you're reading this and it sounds like I can be cocky at times, you're not too far off. That said, I'm more than willing to call myself on it when I've make a mistake and try to make amends. I think most people can be humble when challenged by a superior, but a person's humility should be judged when they are dealing with someone in a weaker position.

I believe in being the protagonist of your own story, that baseball was meant for radio and never TV, and that life is a grand cosmic bit of humor.
What I’m doing with my life
Finishing up a graduate program. I'm unsure of where I will be in a year. I was working upwards of 70 hours a week for the past few years, so I'm having to relearn how to do leisure. I'm pretty sure it is going to involve bowling and kareoke.
I’m really good at
Sciencing. With people.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the scruff. I've been told also that I appear very serious. It takes folks a while to realize that I'm joking with them, even though that's 90percent of what I do in social situations. Truth is best administered in small doses, and usually with a drink.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I left most of my books back east before I moved out here. I don't read as much as fiction as I did before grad school, but what I do better have a bit of the bizarre or sublime. Think Vonnegut or Palahniuk. The books that most moved me? Of Human Bondage and Fahrenheit 451.

I also really enjoy Malcolm Gladwell's stuff even though it isn't always the most scientifically rigorous.

Movies: Wes Anderson, Q Tarantino, Coen Brothers, and pretty much anything with Bill Murray.

Shows: Parks&Rec, Community, Arrested Development
Shows that need to be brought back: Dirty Jobs, Mythbusters, MST3K

Music: Rock music built to its greatest heights in the late 80s and early 90s. I like the folksy stuff and indie rock that is out now, but sometimes I need some Faith No More or Blind Melon.
The six things I could never do without
Internet connectivity
A bicycle
mp3 player/library
A good local pizzeria
Seasons
Late nights/sleeping in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The less meaningful or relevant a topic, the more I tend to think about it. I've given great detail to how I would survive zombie apocalypses, spend lottery windfalls, or run governments.
On a typical Friday night I am
Learning Spanish
Pub crawling
Sanding
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys

You should message me if
You are the modern sort and think it's okay for the woman to make the first move some times.
You are looking for someone who can hold an intelligent conversation.
You want to tell me why the Cardinals are so beloved in this town. I just don't find them all that compelling to root for as teams go, so I'm just wondering, why?

You made it this far into my profile.
