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 and I’m enjoying my life in Philly. I moved here two years ago after graduate school in New York.

I have a great group of friends here and live in cozy little house (with a fireplace meant for lovers). I have a professor job. I feel pretty settled and stuff. The okcupid thing has been okay. I’ve met some great people. 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 do stuff that professors do, at Temple. 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 hot).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking. Thinking. Sleeping in. Cuddling (while sleeping in).

Reading books. Reading about books. Movies. Talking about movies. Reading about movies. Reading about movies about books.

Eating and drinking wine. Skiing (in snow). Zoning out at the gym. Sitting on the porch and drinking whiskey with my friends. Yoga.
