My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Lightweight (literally and metaphorically) rower. After morning practice, I write software. Each is a relief from the other.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
It’s summer, so my training has kicked way up. Rowing is physical, rhythmic, and demanding, and when race day comes, incredibly rewarding. Also you have no idea where you’re going, and somebody else telling you what to do, which is pretty great. I sweep both ways (port and starboard, SORRY LADIES).

To pay for that habit, I write software. I work with a lot of really smart people, and the work I do helps improve people’s days in a tiny way (perhaps even yours?), which is pretty cool. It’s almost entirely unlike rowing (duh), since it’s very quiet, not at all physical, and extremely self-guided.

In my remaining time, and while I’m thinking and writing software, I’m all over music: discovering new music, enjoying old favorites, and going to shows and festivals. Most recently, I saw The Kooks, and before that Arkells. I’ve also been to all the Boston Callings, which have been super fun.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Comic exaggeration and understatement. Sometimes at the same time.
Making awful, obscure, or generally irritating puns.
Having a YouTube link available for any situation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My rowing-ravaged hands.
The amount of milk I drink.
My occasional use of gratuitously large words where maybe smaller ones would do.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Big into TV and film comedy. Most of my TV shows and movies are funny: Seinfeld, Portlandia, 30 Rock, Airplane!, Regular Show, and O Brother Where Art Thou? come off the top of my head, but there's way more in that vein (and many other veins, I guess). Moon is decidedly not a comedy, but is also a favorite. GoodCopGreatCop, mugumogu, vsauce, slomozovo, and 5SecondFilms on YouTube.

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and The Suburbs trade off as my favorite albums. Other than Kanye and Arcade Fire, some other stuff I can think of right now includes The Kooks, The Chain Gang of 1974, Tokyo Police Club, Metric,and Deadmau5. There's a lot beyond that, too.

I love food, especially in quantity. That has proved heartbreaking as I have to maintain my weight. I'm pretty willing to try new things.

I wish I were more literary, but I do at least end up reading a lot of long-form stuff online, kind of like a link magpie, ending up in places like The Awl, The Atlantic, The Verge/Polygon. Lots of definite articles, really, and just about anything that gets linked from Metafilter.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
• The Internet: I admit it, I love it. It's just so full of cool, bizarre, and interesting stuff.
• My bike: The only way to get around town, and it's fun even.
• Milk: The best thing to drink.
• Music in general: Generic, yes, but it's kind of a big thing.
• A keen sense of irony: The world is a strange and funny place, and it's wonderful to notice (and occasionally contribute to) how unexpected it can be.
• Rowing: Physical, demanding, keeps me grounded on something.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
…that cute guy rowing 2 seat the next lane over.
…whether the fact that I tend to act in line with the expectations of masculinity also reinforces harmful gender norms.
…the ice cream sundae I’m going to have when I go off lightweight.
…stupid jokes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Asleep for Saturday practice at some obscene hour of the morning…if I'm being responsible. When I don't have to be responsible, though, maybe I'm at a show, watching TV, out with friends, listening to music, or reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I play a real-life video game called Ingress that involves going to actual historical landmarks, public artworks, or other points of interest in the real world, tapping your phone like a madman, then going to other places and repeating the process. It's actually pretty fun, and I've found out about cool monuments and markers I otherwise would have never noticed.

I have a soft spot for some really trashy electronic music.
