My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I try to live a life of balance. I am the first to laugh and the last to lash out in anger. I talk to strangers and enjoy meeting new people, but I can spend time on my own as well. My sense of humor ranks in the 90th percentile and I tell good stories. I'm a podcast junkie and hope to have a show of my own one day.

I have the soul of an artist and now I'm trying to develop the talent to go with it. Education is important to me and I love probing the minds of the smart people I know (working at a university is a wonderland in this regard), but I'm always up for some dumb fun too.

I'll listen to every word that you say in order to build you up, but I'm also searching for an opportunity to tease you a bit too :P

I am committing to tackling life as if the future is infinite and anything is possible. When I have doubts I stop to ask myself, "Why not?" There is usually no reason not to jump in.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, pursuing an MBA, and writing for my blog (a total work in progress).

I want to get more involved with groups in the city focused on biking and hiking. Biking has become a new passion and I do about 10 miles a day commuting to work using my Bikeshare membership.

I'm trying to become more outdoorsy. I love camping and hiking. I once spent a month out in Yellowstone and it was the greatest experience of my life. It was huge and impossibly beautiful.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Questioning everything and making you say "I never thought about it that way before."

I can find the humor in any situation and I can make you see it too.

Teaching my faculty how to make guns out of bananas. #realamericanhero
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People say that I am sarcastic, but people are wrong. I just good approach language from another angle. I appreciate genuineness, but I like a woman who can throw a little sass in my direction.

UPDATE! I actually am sarcastic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love me some Vonnegut and Twain, Neil Gaiman is worth exploring beyond Sandman and American Gods, and I thank Stan Lee for the universe he created. Currently tearing my way through A Song of Ice and Fire. Charles P. Pierce and Troy Patterson are my favorite writers on the internet today.

I've been a vegetarian for over four years and I'm working at getting better at doing it properly. Indian and Mexican cuisine is best, but I'm always down for a craft beer and vegan BBQ at Smoke & Barrel. Food trucks are my DC-induced new obsession.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Capital Bikeshare membership
Italian stovetop espresso maker
Music collection (15 years in the making)
Warm beds in cold rooms
Wolverine claws
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
In no particular order...

Why isn't there an overly complex German word to express the concept of "fighting words that are really flirting words?" Please chime in if you're good with portmanteaus.

Income inequality, higher education and online learning, the origins of Abrahamic religion, the dangers of scientific illiteracy, if Jon Snow is a secret Targaryen, my next harebrained business scheme, technological solutionism, balancing faith and rationality, whether the language of social justice advances the *cause* of social justice, why it took me 28 years to combine bananas and peanut butter, if beards are just make-up for men.

Whether I would prefer to be known for being funny or profound.

How to balance my desire to have nice things and live an adult life without succumbing to rampant consumerism.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Catching a random live concert at 9:30 Club, heading to a happy hour, or (you guessed it) binging on Netflix and a good book. Jazz in the Garden is great in the summer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I'm alone I talk/sing to myself like Jean Ralphio. I'm the wooOOoorst.

I thought I would hate square dancing, but it's super fun and I volunteer with the DC Square Dance Collective now as a sound tech.

I lied about having Wolverine claws and I have strong opinions about belts.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a strong, confident, sassy woman who can conquer the world, but who also likes to sleep in and eat waffles.

You say "yes". Ira Glass is your hero. You want to join my Oregon Trail party and promise not to die of dysentery.

You want to share your personal theory on how A Game of Thrones (ASOIAF for the initiated) ends.
