My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Un-self-serious. Wonder-prone. Incurably dance-y.

I read like a demon; I love politics but won't ever run for office; on a scale of one to ten I'm basically The Magnetic Fields. Hope that helps!

Pretty settled here, but moved to Chicago from elsewhere. that in mind? Does my status as a "transplant" make me more dateable? I'm an exotic flower so message me already.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated from a Master's Program at UChicago in December, and right now I'm applying to PhD programs and working in the loop as a procurement analyst.

My strong friend-group keeps me pleasantly busy outside of work, and the rest of my time is spent savoring the simple enjoyments of being a being.

Other than that, I'm reflective? (introspective, not shiny). Some of my time goes into examining why I feel what I feel, think what I think, etc. Mental hygiene FTW!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
karaoke, halloween, my strong suit

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Disclaimer/shameful confession: I like a book or movie less when everybody else starts liking it. It's terrible. So sue me.

Books: Didion, Dickens, Austen, Bellow, Wittgenstein, Cavell, A Visit from the Goon Squad, Saul and Patsy, Little, Big, The Ask, Wolf Hall, The Age of Wonder

Movies: The Babadook, Dark City, Don't Look Now, In the Loop, Burma VJ. Apparently I need to spend more time in mainstream land.

Shows: 30 Rock (duh), Parks and Rec (the early seasons), The Shield

Music: The Magnetic Fields

Food: I'm an adventurous eater! It's hard to find a cuisine that I don't like. All vegetables (especially beets, eggplant and zucchini). Most fruits (especially strawberries and mangos). Team taco over team pizza.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1)a quiet place to live and
2)read my books;
3)knowledge of spring and
4)the possibility of walks;
5)my lucky chair,
6)my fancy, pin-striped pants
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The filibuster. The metaphysical implausibility of the everyday. My own beliefs and what causes them. Other people's beliefs and what causes them. Paradox. Paradox. Paradox.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Haunted by the memory of a typical Thursday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Voted "most shy" in high school. Now I'm a social butterfly! Who woulda thunk?

I'm a kind, sensitive, upbeat guy. I'm settled and stable but not boring. I love getting to know people, and I genuinely like in-person meet-ups, so message away.
