My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
picking a dating site profile name is the worst. people read into everything. so I went with a random Latin word that refers to some kind of plant. (okay it turns out this plant is poisonous. let's move on.)

all in all I’m a pretty happy person. I have a great group of friends and live in cozy little house (with a fireplace for lovers). I have a professor job. I feel pretty settled and stuff. the okcupid thing has been okay. I’ve met some good people. I guess my philosophy is, "slow and steady wins the race." (this is also my sexual philosophy. just kidding! maybe.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach and do research and waste my time at committee meetings. I'm starting a new project in Morocco, which has been cool (and by "cool" I mean scorchingly sunny and hot).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
napping. sleeping in. cuddling (esp. while napping/sleeping in).

reading books. reading about books. movies. talking about movies. reading about movies. reading about movies about books.

finding good restaurants. skiing (in snow). zoning out at the gym. drinking whiskey with my friends. volleyball. yoga.
