My self-summary
I just moved to Pittsburgh, and I don't know anyone! Tell me something cool to do in town. Or better yet, let's do it together.
I could tell you that I'm fun to be around, but I'd rather you judge for yourself. I'm hungry for growth. I like people, books, and experiences that challenge my ideas about myself and the world. I try to sit with uncertainty & discomfort. I'm easily excitable. I'm engaged. I'm endlessly curious. And before I start sounding too intense, I also like naps, internet videos, and excuses to wear funky costumes.

I'm looking for someone who is smart, culturally aware, pro women, and psychologically healthy/self-aware.

Too much to ask? ;)

I'm also a total goofball, addicted to strategy board/card games, a creative artsy type, and I dabble in the dark arts of karaoke.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying not to sacrifice my social life or sanity while finishing a doc program.
I’m really good at
Connecting with people, finding humor in everything, and embarrassing myself.

Also, sending messages via telepathy to my cat Sputnik.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Stephen King, Jo Nesbo, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Pema Chodron, Brene Brown, Irvin Yalom, Ram Dass... Basically psychology, murder mystery, or Buddhism

Radio: NPR, all day e'ry day

TV: Game of Thrones, True Detective, political comedy shows, South Park, Futurama, Walking Dead, The X-Files

Movies: Apocalyptic flicks are a particular favorite.

Music: 90's alternative, chill electronic, folky sing songy tunes, interesting remixes, and anything with a cello (I feel like this is the section where people try to out-hipster each other)

Food: give me cheese or give me death
The six things I could never do without
How about 6 things I want to do before I die:
1. Moonrise party in Cambodia
2. See Red Hot Chili Peppers
3. Learn how to do metal work
4. Ride a camel (leftover childhood wish)
5. Learn how to play guitar
6. Visit a national park in every state
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Weekend plans. How do people change? What does my cat do when I'm gone all day? Deadlines. Art projects. Altruism. Good music coming to town. Politics. Personal betterment. What should I read next? Where can I go for an awesome breakfast? Existentialism. Inequality. Why don't I actually use my planner?
On a typical Friday night I am
In Denver it was board games, karaoke, hunting down music or dancing.

Here? We shall see!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to be attracted to smart men. But intelligence-as-defense is such a drag. Vulnerability is even more stimulating.
You should message me if
You want to be real with someone.
