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!

I'm pretty settled here, but I moved to Chicago from elsewhere. So...um...keep 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. It's a pay-the-bills type gig: my passions lie far afield from the realm of supply-chain analysis (believe it or not).

I have a strong friend-group that keeps me pleasantly busy outside of work, and I spend the rest of my time savoring the simple enjoyments of being a being.

Other than that, I'm reflective? (introspective, not shiny). I devote some of my time and mental energy to examining why I feel what I feel, think what I think, etc. It's my favorite pastime!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
karaoke, halloween, my strong suit
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm intense in my enthusiasms.
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/emotions and what causes them. Other people's beliefs/emotions 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
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was voted "most shy" in high school. Now I'm a social butterfly! Who woulda thunk?
You should message me if

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.
