My self-summary
Don't you just hate doing these? Here goes: I'm an enthusiastic, sensitive nerd, and proud of it! I'm a very open guy with a strong sense of justice. I studied philosophy and I like to express myself anyway I know how. I like being around people and sharing stories.

When I'm not trying to unburden myself of liberal guilt over sexism, colonialism or general lack of purpose and Good Works, I'm probably talking to someone, trying to inject crude humor or nerdy references into the conversation. Occasionally and sometimes intentionally raising profound questions. Sometimes I'm obsessed with a story, fictional or not, holed up in my room: filling in the blanks and geeking out, losing my cool over prejudice, or plot holes.
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished my Master's degree in philosophy and now I'm trying to become the best teacher I can be. In the meantime, I'm trying to keep busy. Other than that, I want to know myself, know others, and know how the world works, so I can be a better person. If at all possible, have fun while doing so.
I’m really good at
Reading stuff, Writing stuff, Singing in private or in public, Acting goofy, Talking too much, Analyzing and Criticizing texts and ideas, remembering Useless Trivia, Playing Games

I bet I can make you laugh. And think. Yeah, pretty proud of that one. Yeah, that's me. Laughable and thought-provoking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm very enthusiastic and passionate about things I like, and also about injustice. I also have a slight limp. Ask me why, don't be shy :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Wow. Where to start? In general terms, I like dark and deep science fiction and fantasy. I like alternate worlds that inspire us to think about ours. I like grey areas. I like eloquence, irony and self-reference. I like it when prejudices are challenged and warped.

Food: I'm not very adventurous when it comes to food. I like a good pasta, couscous or curry. So Asian and Mediterranean cooking covers it, although that's not saying much. Risotto is probably my favorite.

On a typical Friday night I am
No such thing as a typical Friday night :)

Studying, reading, playing videogames, watching tv or hanging out with friends, usually.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not very experienced when it comes to love or dating. Be gentle.
You should message me if
you have an open mind, a nerdy sense of humor, and an appetite for a good conversation about any topic. Also, don't bother if you're judgmental or insensitive.
The two of us
