My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am random, a smart-ass, and an old soul. I love hiking, camping, backpacking, rock climbing, bowling, pool, video games, running and (mis)adventures. I love travelling and am always thinking about my next destination.

I value a person with a good heart, a wise mind and a dry sense of humor. I want a woman who pushes me out of my comfort zone without smothering me, and who wants to find a healthy balance between days spent indoors and outdoors. I don't want a partier, a devout church go-er or a fixer. In truth, I don't need a soul mate or "the one," I need a companion who will fight and journey beside me on the craziest thing we will ever experience, a life together.

Oh, and because everyone on OKC seems to find it important to mention it... I'm an INTP.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life is currently at a huge transition point. After 3 years of unsuccessfully finishing my doctorate, I spent most of the 2014-15 academic year traveling the world. Over 6 months I visited 13 countries including: New Zealand, Australia, Hungary, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Nepal, Jordan, Belgium and England. It was more amazing than I could begin to say, but I'm ready to get back to real life.

I've recently been accepted for a clinical psychology internship in Naperville, which is my final step to finishing my degree. Truth be told, the acceptance kind of came out of nowhere and I will soon (Aug 2015) find myself living and working in a city I've never been to before. I'd love to meet someone(s) who is willing to show the new guy the best places to eat, hang out or get a decent coffee.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people laugh. I'm always cracking jokes, at any and everyone's expense (including my own.) I'm a good listener
(who would have guessed.) I truely love my work and the kids I help. Oh, I'm also great at being random (Squirrel!), painting miniatures, making breakfast and procrastinating like no other.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically? My eyes. They're nifty and green and brown.

Personality wise? That I'm a total smart-ass. I love sarcasm and witt, and a girl that can keep up with me, blow for blow, earns major points.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't read alot, but I'm a firm believer in Audible. What I do read is either fantasy (I love Robert Jordan, Tolkein, Salvatore, Greenwood, Peter David, etc) or psychology (huge fan on Yalom and Rogers).

When it comes to movies... I'm all about comedies (romantic or otherwise). If you haven't seen any of Mel Brooks' movies, you will. It is a requirement of being my friend. Also in no particular order... The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Way, Sherlock Holmes, Despicable Me, A lot like love, Eternal sunshine of a spotless mind, 50 first dates, Shrink, Serenity, Charlie Bartlett, Gladiator, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Juno, The Princess Bride, the original Star Wars trilogy... and many, many more.

TV? Also in no order... Musketeers, Downton Abbey, Almost Human, Once Upon a Time, Family Guy, The Simpsons, Sherlock, Firefly, Psych, Doctor Who, Numb3rs, Castle, Stargate (all of them), Big Bang Theory, and again many, many more.

Music? A wide variety, mostly big band, acapella, punk, alternative, celtic, Irish/folk... basically anything not rap, country, scream-o metal or EDM. Current playlists include: American Authors, Ed Sheeran, Mat Kearny, Bowling for Soup, Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At the Disco, Barenaked Ladies, Sublime, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Flogging Molly, Great Big Sea, Carbon Leaf, The Dubliners + 200 others.

Food? This is an area I am trying to expand on. As a kid I was very picky, and as an adult I have preferred to stick to what I know. In general, I love anything with carbs... I LOVE bread, pasta, potatoes, etc. And of course the occasional steak. I am, however, not a fan of seafood of any kind. That all being said, since traveling, I now often find myself craving Indian food, Vegetarian sushi and the occasional pita and hummus.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My friends
2. Random hobbies
3. Sarcasm
4. A new place to explore
5. Caffeine
6. Cereal
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think alot about who I am, and who I want to be. The last 2 years has seen a lot of change in my life and I have no idea what the next 2 hold. I'm scared of a future I'm not yet prepared for, but excited for the adventures such a future holds.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hopefully finding time to spend with friends. I'm really not into the bar/club seen. So my friday nights tend to be spent doing more (in my oppinion) fun things with friends. I generally like to hang out with friends, play some telephone pictionary or other "grown-up" games (e.g. Settlers of Catan or Cards Against Humanity) and just have fun.

I also love to throw the occassional party/get-together, or to go out and play mini golf, pool or go bowling (though I suck at all of the above).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a HUGE phobia of driving. As such, I didn't start driving till I was 25, and still don't own a car. If that's a dealbreaker, so be it. I'm working on overcoming it, bit by bit, but don't expect me to commute 45 min. to see you anytime soon.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're sarcastic.
You enjoy intellectually stimulating conversations.
You want to explore your world (both internal and external).
You're not looking for "the one", but are open to starting out as friends as seeing where things go from there.
You think you can teach me something new (big or small).
