My self-summary
I'm incredibly long winded. This'll be evident soon.

Avid reader.

Penchant for dry humor and sarcasm.

I Google words before I use them constantly, even if I know for a fact I'm using them correctly. (Yes, I'm talking about penchant.)

I'm a consumer of any information I can get my hands on. I love learning new things, and if I'm tasked with something I've never done before I'm the type of person who'd rather try to figure it out and fail miserably in the process than say "I can't."

I'm a native New Yorker who loves this city more than anything in the world, no matter how many times my personal space is invaded on the 6 train.

I love meaningful conversation just as much as I "love to laugh"*. No topic of conversation is off limits, and I'm always open to a new perspective.

Relationship wise? I'm cliche and I embrace it. I'm not searching for a soul mate, nor am I under immense pressure from an overbearing family to find someone who can start shooting kids out ASAP. I'm one to take things as they come, and let things progress naturally.

*On OkCupid, Everyone, "Seriously, Every Single Profile Has Some Version of This," December 29th, 2013.
What I’m doing with my life
In a Masters program, which is a combination of exciting, more difficult than I ever imagined, soul destroying, and absolutely incredible. I'm in a glass case of emotion!

Attempting to get OkCupid to say I'm something besides "More Sex-Driven."

Throwing tons of money at the staff of the Strand bookstore and realizing I'm going to need sixty years to read all I've bought.
I’m really good at
Writing with blatant disregard for syntax.

Breathing.

Charming mothers.

Drawing a blank when people ask me what I'm really good at.

Making lists.

Overusing the word "love" in an "I enjoy" context.

Sending absolutely atrocious first messages on OkCupid, apparently.

Accidental alliteration.

Not smiling in pre-posed pictures.

Not proofreading things, which leads to terrible things like words being repeated over and over again, and things like that. Things.

Overuse of lists.
The first things people usually notice about me
The book in my hands, the glasses on my face, the striking resemblance to Clark Kent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll read anything Noam Chomsky, Rashid Khalidi, Bill Simmons, or Khaled Hosseini write, forever.

Movies are difficult, I enjoy almost all types, but my top five would have to be Gladiator (if the "My name is Maximus Decimus..." monologue doesn't get you pumped up enough to run through a brick wall, you might be dead), Inglorious Basterds (Because 'Merica), Anchorman (This needs no explanation), Clueless (don't look at me like that), and Mean Girls (see previous parenthetical).

Archer is incredible. Other than that, TV doesn't do much for me outside of the Science Channel. I get trapped watching for hours and end up having only the slightest grasp on concepts that make me feel incredibly insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

I could go on for days about music I listen to, and I'm always open to new suggestions. Things I've listened to in the past twenty four hours: Glassjaw, Brand New, Kendrick Lamar, Tyler the Creator, Diplo, Major Lazer, TNGHT, Deftones, Sleigh Bells, Neutral Milk Hotel, Bright Eyes, Say Anything and Lorde. I'm all over the place.

I'll eat anything that isn't spicy, or from a strange part of a stranger animal. Although I did recently try rabbit, and while I felt terrible picturing what I was eating, I would be lying if I said it was anything short of incredible.
The six things I could never do without
I feel like all six can be combined to relate to my phone and computer somehow. If I didn't have either, I'd probably curl up in a fetal position and accept the fact that I had no idea how to tie my shoes, boil water, or find the nearest subway stop.

Google is overused but incredibly underrated. Pushing "[I do not] carry such information in my mind since it is readily available in books" to new limits.

Good, stimulating, conversation. I love talking about any and all things, and exchanging ideas; even if they run completely counter to my own beliefs.

The ability to speak and write words. Expression is critical.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics. We can discuss the specifics later.

How much history affects current events; how what we do now will have a completely separate set of consequences twenty years from now; and how few people seem to realize this.

The world around me; people, places, things, and ideas.

People and their stories. I'm a sponge. I love to listen and absorb, whether it be about new people, new ideas, or new people sharing their own ideas. Ideas contrary to my own are MORE than welcome. Some of the most stimulating conversations I've ever had have been with Libertarians.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading.

In the gymlibrary.

Off wandering.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never eaten a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I've never eaten peanut butter or jelly, independently, for that matter.

There are more non food related ones, but I think those may have the most shock value.

You have thoughts on the above that you'd like to discuss.

If you can figure out why my username is Charles_Safety.

For any reason at all really. I enjoy receiving first messages way more than I enjoy sending them out and I've given you a ton of possible openings here. Go for it.
