My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a graduate student at the University of Oregon. In my free time, I like to go running. A lot. Following the philosophy of one of my friends in undergrad, I also do a lot of races, because there's nothing better to motivate you than thinking "well I mean... I already paid for it..." I did my first two marathons this year (Whidby Island and Eugene), and I'm training for Seattle in November. I already feel hooked on the sport!

I also like hiking, and I've been doing my best to branch out and explore some of the surrounding areas. Still, I have a soft spot in my heart for Spencer's Butte, and when it's nice out I like to go up multiple times a week.

I'm also fairly close with my family, and I go back home (Seattle) about once a month. When I was a kid, I always said I wanted to grow up to be my dad, and I think that this sentiment has only grown over the years. I'm also a proud uncle of four kids, and I do my best to visit them when I can.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a grad student in a research science, and I teach a class once a week at a community college in Salem. I'd either like to continue on in academia or become a teacher.

I also do a lot of volunteer work, and it takes up a good portion of my time. I'm an agnostic, but I truly believe that The Dining Room is what people talk about when they talk about heaven on earth.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching, listening, encouraging people, seamlessly inserting lyrics into casual conversation. I've been told that I'm a good person to go to with problems, because I empathize well and I always want people to feel like someone is on their side. To that end, I feel like honesty and compassion are the two greatest virtues, and I've worked hard to foster each in my life.

On a lighter note, I've been told that I'm really good at getting myself into situations that make for hilarious or outrageous stories.

I also have a few stupid human tricks, but I guess we'll leave those as a surprise for now.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I laugh at my own jokes... a lot. But hey, at least someone's laughing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: I'm a huge nerd for punk. I also like blues, jazz, motown, hip hop, and classic rock. I like some metal, but I'm more into grooves and less into "noodle-y" guitar solos. I used to be a music snob, then I realized that it's pointless. I started putting on the radio and just pressing up until I found music. Turns out I don't hate pop or country like I thought I did. Turns out I like most things. If we end up clicking, I think it would be cool if you made me a mix cd with some of your favorite stuff on it. That said, my favorite bands are Shook Ones, Dag Nasty, Cro-Mags, Minor Threat, Bane, Bikini Kill, Leatherface, My Bloody Valentine, Joy Division, Funkadelic, Wu Tang Clan, Pharoahe Monch, AC/DC, and The Stooges.

Books: I read a lot, and I spend a lot of time at Smith Family books. I read mostly fiction, but I'm really interested in reading things that people recommend, and I try to read a book a week. If spending a Sunday afternoon reading at a coffee shop seems romantic to you, then I think we'll get along. My absolute favorite authors are Cormac McCarthy, J.D. Salinger, John Steinbeck, Dostoyevsky, and Herman Hesse. I guess that means I like moralists, and that probably makes me sound too serious. I also love David Sedaris if that helps.

Shows: 30 Rock, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Party Down, The Office, Freaks and Geeks, Community, The Daily Show, Modern Family, Bob's Burgers, and Workaholics.

Movies: I love going to the Bijou, and lately I've been trying to go as often as possible. I like a wide range of movies, but choosing favorites is hard. If it's gritty, incredibly emotional, or can make me laugh out loud, chances are I'll like it. On the other end of the spectrum, I saw Bad Boys II three times in theaters. Best theater experience ever though was seeing Taken at a dollar theater. The whole room went wild every time Liam Neeson punched someone in the neck, which was frequently. I feel like bad action movies and stoner comedies always brighten my day.

Food: I'm down for whatever. Usually I'll eat Mexican or Italian, but I'm also quite fond of Thai, Japanese, Mediterranean, or Southern food. Only thing is, I don't eat meat. I know how to cook well, but I get lazy cooking for one.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Laughter and lots of it
2. Easy access to nature
3. A good book in my backpack
4. A blackboard or white board
5. Roommates - living alone gets boring
6. Running trails
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Puns. Really really bad puns.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I make it a point to go out and do something most Friday and Saturday nights. Usually that means going to a concert or hanging around downtown.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Whenever I'm alone in an elevator, I dance.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like nerding out over pretty much anything. You like to joke around a lot, and you don't take yourself too seriously. You don't mind someone with a snarky sense of humor. Or you just really like hiking and want someone to explore the area with. You should know right now that I will get out of breath talking while hiking or running, and so everything I say will sound super urgent. In fact... I should just make that a feature, not a fault. I will only say urgent things while hiking or running.

I'm looking for the potential of a serious relationship, but I would like things to move slow so that we can both figure out if it's something that will work. So it might be more honest to say I'm looking for friendship, and if it blossoms into something, great! If not, oh well. I don't like dating a person that I'm not friends with.
