My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am Emperor Grinyderblog, Lord and Master of all I survey!!! Bow down before the one you serve!!!

Seriously though, I'm not even good at selling myself on a resume. I think the problem is not knowing who my audience is. Who are you? What do you want to know about me? All the basics are there, I'm healthy, empathetic, smart, good humored, emotionally and financially stable, attractive, positive, educated, gainfully employed... blah, blah, blah.

In short, yes, I have my stuff together and endeavor to be a decent human being. I enjoy life in the present with an eye on the future. I do not wallow in regret, but try to learn from the past so I can avoid mistakes and be ready for opportunities. I'm independent, but also appreciate how much the right partner can add to life.

I don't take myself too seriously, so if you think we might have an interesting conversation say hello. In the worst case scenario, we'll have a story to tell.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm enjoying it. I generally stay in the "now", however, I am cognizant of the hazards of just letting life happen to me. On a given weekend, you might find me on a hike, on a golf course, or maybe just some quiet time at home.

Work wise, I do science stuff. It's fun and can be challenging, though I appreciate that it's often not the most interesting dinner conversation. However, if you're into that, bonus points.

As far as in my free time, I've historically been serially passionate to the point of being obsessive about hobbies. However, as I've "matured" I'd like to think I've learned a thing or two about moderation. That being said, I'd love to hear about your passion. Whatever it is, if you are passionate about it, I'll be fascinated. There's nothing like seeing someone light up talking about something they really love.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A friend once said if I were a superhero, I'd be Empathy-Man, "With the power to feel your pain!" Which would be a pretty unimpressive superpower, and mighty boring superhero.

Here's something else I'm good at:
Me: "Well he sure was getting flustered."
Coworker: "I think it had to do with your line of questioning."
Me: "I just wanted to understand how his stuff worked."
Coworker: "Your powers of logic overwhelmed him."
Me: "I must remember to only use that for good."
Coworker: "Indeed."

I should note that I appreciate that social interactions aren't about rigorous logic, but in general my BS detector is always on. (I think it comes from having spent time in pool halls. There's a lot of BS surrounding that activity.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not to be an ass, but I really think this has far more to do with the person doing the observing. I don't work at projecting an image, so I really don't know. I hope what is noticed is true to who I am, but again, I'd argue it has more to do with the observer than me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a real hard time with this section. I'm not a top 10 kinda' guy so I'm just going to generalize.

I tend to read crap. Best seller thriller or bad horror or tech stuff. I read for fun, and I tend to reread books.

I'm not a movie guy so much, but I realized what I do like is pretty dark. (Seven, History of Violence, Lord of War, Falling Down, Eternal Sunshine...) I'll enjoy the mindless eye-candy or the thought provoking stuff as well.

I'm enjoy most genres, but I'm not big on most country, rap, pop, or R&B. My default is "alternative" but that can cover a lot of ground. (Yes, NIN reference in the summary was on purpose.)

I'm a member of KQED, so you can make your guesses there.

I watch some series on DVD, but the only time I make a point to catch something live is for a sporting event. That being said, I finally watched all of Breaking Bad and... damn.

I like good food, but that can be anything from the local mom and pop place to fine dining. Day to day, I try to abide by Michael Pollan's rule of "Eat real food, not too much, mostly vegetables."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Apart from the basics like shelter and food, there isn't much I "need". I mean, I like "things", but I'm pretty adaptable. Besides which, sometimes "things" just go away and you find out you can make do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Recently, a math problem. (I understand how this will only reinforce asian stereotypes, but believe it or not, I don't count math as a strength and rarely if ever "spend a lot of time" thinking about math.) The math problem is the sum of all natural numbers (one to infinity). If you know the answer and it makes intuitive sense to you, PLEASE message me, because I'm having difficulty wrapping my head around the answer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Winding down from the week/day, having a pint with friends, having an early evening for the day ahead. I'm not sure how "typical" any of my Friday nights are at this point.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've tipped twice because I didn't think the cashier saw me do it the first time.

I went to the internet to find a better way to tie my shoelaces... and found it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Do you know who you are and, with that knowledge, realize you don't need to take yourself too seriously? Do you appreciate the world around you? Are you passionate about something? Do you feel like your life is pretty good and the right partner in crime would just make it that much better? Well me too. Say hello and let's go exploring.
