My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I try not to take things (including myself) too seriously. I'm a pretty eccentric person in a lot of ways, and I really enjoy getting to know other unique, quirky and interesting people.

I like to do sports/physical activities that involve moving/using my body in artistic ways. I've been doing yoga for the past few years. For the past year or so I've gotten really into aerial acrobatics (that circusy performance art you've probably seen where people climb up long pieces of fabric, wrap them around their bodies, etc) and pole (which despite the reputation, I find much more athletic than strippery, though it does involve booty shorts).

UPDATE (2015/05/17): I broke my foot (and tore some important ligaments) about 3 months ago doing aerial silks.... So many of these hobbies are on hold for a while. At the moment, I'm hobbling around in a rocket boot with a cane.)

I really like playing music, but the band has been on hiatus for a while ever since the drummer knocked up our bass player (you all know how that goes...) I'm by no means an awesome musician, but it's something I really enjoy doing a lot. I play guitar and sing, so if anyone out there wants to get together to jam, let me know! (I also love karaoke).

I'm a pretty frequent traveler. I have too many friends who live in too many places. It's great to always have a place to stay, but it also means I'm always on the road (or in the air) trying to catch up with people I care about. It would be cool to meet a travel buddy to share my adventures with.

I find gender roles and gender expectations really frustrating. I try not to let them hold me back from doing things I love doing (e.g. pole dancing, costumes). I might hold the door for you, but it is because you are a person, not because men should hold doors for women! I am a feminist, and I think it really sucks that the world is set up in such a way that women can be treated badly and so many people will just look the other way.

I'm not sure if all of my OKC question answers still accurately reflect who I am. I filled most of them out several years ago. I'm hoping to find someone I really click with, and I do I would be interested in something serious. It seems like that just so rarely comes along though, and so I'm open to just meeting people and having fun and enjoying my life in the mean time too!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I finished a masters in computational linguistics a few years ago. Right now I'm working on Japanese-English machine translation software.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
pole dancing, relaxing, thumb wars (I don't think I've ever lost a match (I will fight dirty and cheat if necessary to win or force a draw)), back rubs, learning foreign languages, making soup, math, thinking of horrible practical jokes that are actually too horrible to ever carry out.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I look like somebody else they know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: Of Montreal, Little Dragon, Elliot Smith, Radiohead, Gorillaz, Belle and Sebastian, Zeppelin, Kings of Convenience, Amy Winehouse

Food: Korean, Dumplings, Middle Eastern (Hummus, Kebab, etc), Peking Duck, Sichuan style dishes (Ma Po Tofu, Yu Xiang eggplant, etc), stewy soupy stuff, Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Ethiopian.

Lately though, I've been on kind of a health kick. I'm trying to eat only real food that don't come from a box and not much refined sugar/carbs. I'm not vegetarian, but I've been eating vegetarian more often lately, mostly because I think it's healthier.

Movies: Being John Malkovich, Wayne's World, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Ratatouille, Princess Mononoke, Fight Club, The Matrix (only the first one).

TV: The Wire, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, The Daily Show, Elementary, Dexter, BSG, Star Trek TNG (Patrick Stewart is so dreamy),True Detective, Fringe. I love sci-fi, especially of the futuristic / space-exploring variety. I don't really watch TV that often, but I do binge sometimes if I find a show I like.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
E, A, D, G, B, E strings
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look ridiculously hot in a dress (2nd place in my undergrad drag show, though sadly I can't find any hard evidence of this :/)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I find girls who are smart, and crazy (the fun kind of crazy) and not afraid of making a fool of themselves particularly irresistible. I also really admire people who are really good at an artistic skill. I'm also quite physically active when I'm not a cripple, and enjoy having friends/partners who I can do athletic activities with. But in general, just message me if you think we'd get along.

I don't really enjoy trying to get to know people through endless exchanges of online messages. I feel like people's personalities come through much better in person. Also, I find a lot of people are very flaky/make plans and don't follow through, so it's not worth the energy investment for me to try to come up with long witty messages unless I know someone is interested in having a connection in real life.
