My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Q: Why do they build fences around cemeteries?
A: Because people are dying to get in.

Hey-o! Good one, no? There’s plenty more where that came from – by which I mean I know about 3 more jokes. So, I'll need you to tell me more.

Anyways, I live up north, in the land of 30-somethings, beards and craft beers. I play beach volleyball and constantly waiver regarding how serious I should be taking it. (It’s just beach volleyball, come on man, have a beer vs. WE COULD BE THE BEST PLAY HARDER). I am liberally minded, interested in politics and public policy, and thrive on working on strategic problem solving. I am equally happy discussing books, podcasts, politics, philosophies on how to live life, as well as video games, funny childhood memories, best SNL sketches, and Mystery Science Theater.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to Chicago from Hawaii 11 years ago, which is insane. 11 years! That’s longer than high school and college combined. Anyways, I work for a wonderful international organization that allows me to travel to fun places from time to time. I do love this job, but am considering how I may improve and expand my career, so am considering a potential job change in the near future…

I work out, pretend to be a runner, drink red wine and craft beer, and pet strangers' dogs on the street. Going out to dinner is my favorite hobby. I try to be outside as much as I possibly can when the weather's nice - reading in the park, practicing volleyball, cookouts and picnics, patio drinks, outdoor music and movies.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The analytical section of the GRE, insight and introspection, remembering the lyrics of 90's rap songs, finding my friends in large crowds or at the beach and navigating public transit in any city.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm sure people do notice me sometimes, but from time to time I’ll have a day where people keep bumping into me, cars nearly run me over, the automatic doors won’t open for me, which prompts me to think I might be involved in some kind of Sixth Sense situation….
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am going to follow the lead of my dear friend, who recently shared her profile with me, to say - this stuff doesn't really matter all that much. Basically, I care that you read (maybe not Atlas Shrugged as your favorite book) and like music (maybe not Nickelback). And love food. Other than that - it's all good.

I'll keep my responses brief:

Books: I love reading! I typically love all dystopian fiction, but haven't read anything in that genre recently. I just finished The Goldfinch and The Poisonwood Bible. I just started The Girl on the Train.

Movies: Bamboozled, Kill Bill, Mean Girls, Pitch Perfect, Eyes on the Prize documentary series.

Music: I miss the 90’s for the music alone. I am the worst with keeping up with current music. Maybe this is a skill of yours? Or we can try to navigate the complicated world of cool new music together.

Food: This list is far to extensive to type out.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Family and friends
2. Public radio
3. Those studies that say intelligent people drink more
4. Open mindedness and attempts at general kindness
5. Public Libraries
6. People who write “press button, receive bacon” on hand dryers in bathrooms.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what comes next, how and why the past matters, and how to stay grounded in the present. When I’m stressed out, doing math in my head and making lists calms me down. Why am I so committed to watching Parenthood? I don't even really like this show. I can't stop.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Unintentionally alienating people at dinner, parties, or dinner parties by talking about depressing (but fascinating!) podcasts/ news stories. Did you hear the This American Life about the Girl Scout troop in the concentration camp? It was an incredible story! Or the super depressing and insane story about the woman in China who was killed on the escalator? But seriously, fuck escalators.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Every time I go to Chipotle I get the burrito bowl and I tell them they better give me a lid and a bag, because I won't finish it and will end up taking it to go. And every single time I finish the whole thing. I bet I could eat like 4 burrito bowls.

Also, I'm supremely terrible at Wheel of Fortune. Impressively bad.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You have a positive association with liberalism and feminism.
- You can make me laugh and appreciate great dinners and drinks.
- You are happy with your life and what you are doing right now.
- You have a generally positive outlook on life with a healthy dose of cynicism for laughs.
- I hate to be negative here, but married dudes - stop messaging me. No judgement! Just not for me. Same deal with suburbs.
