My self-summary
I'm a very relaxed 30 year old who has managed to finish a graduate degree (yippee for small accomplishments). Also, I am horrible at describing myself so please just ask!

And call me J.R.

Trying to switch to a vegetarian diet. If you have any tips, recipes, books, etc. to share please do!

Also, I have insomnia. That just seems relevant because I keep being asked why I'm online late at night.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to find where I fit in the world. I'm at the interesting point where I know who I am, and know what I want and I'm just trying to find a place to be that.

I'm currently enrolled online at Coursera (free online education Yippee) for a bit of fun, and I'm trying to start up a Youtube channel on religion. If you have any advice at all on the technical aspects of recording and loading interviews I'd really appreciate it.

Also, I'm finally rehabbed from a badly pinched nerve so I'm getting back in shape. If you have any advice on hand balancing, yoga, or shoulder flexibility don't hesitate to share it!
I’m really good at
Baking cheesecake
Sarcasm (free service with every coffee trip)
Adding 2+2
Golf (used to be...you know you're getting old when you put "hasbeen" on a list of skills)
Joking about myself
Finding something to talk about
The first things people usually notice about me
Hair. For some reason when I change my hair people don't recognize me. My hair makes my face. I've never had anyone explain why that is. Please take that as a challenge.

Also, I have shown my friends the "personality" section of my profile and not one of them can figure out how "more pure" describes me. Just an fyi
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love experimenting with desert recipes. I've got a few delicious types of cheesecake cupcakes that I'm willing to share with the right girl. But this is a quid pro quo. You might have to help me perfect my idea for a raspberry-peach creme brulee in order to try them.

I'm always looking for a good meat substitute for my chicken/turkey stir fries (please feel free to offer suggestions)

Also, weekend mornings are clearly made for omelettes

My all-time favorite book is "The Horse and His Boy" by C.S. Lewis

I'm currently working my way through George Lakoff's "Moral Politics" and Steven Pinker's "Better Angels of Our Nature". Feel free to recommend something lighter. I enjoy fiction but can't ever seem to buy it for myself.
The six things I could never do without
More friends
More books
My local library and inter library loan
Did I mention books?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I don't really spend a lot of time thinking about this but I have to mention it.

One of my best friends also has an OKC account. She has been there for me through all of it (yes, one of my best friends is a she. Don't like it then keep moving) and we only have a 61% friendship rating. I mean seriously, why have I spent all that time answering questions if it's that inaccurate?

Ladies, what is it with Machu Picchu? Seriously, one out of three of you has a shot looking down on the place.

Is there such a thing as a Voyager fan?

Ladies, I keep seeing on your profiles that it's a turn off if a guy hasn't achieved the same level of education as you. Seriously here, clue me in. I have a masters, but how does that make me more suitable than the guy who became a master plumber and opened his own business? And I seriously want this answered. I mean wth!?

Brexit anyone?
BREXIT! We have a Brexit!
On a typical Friday night I am
Did I mention books?

But I love a good show. And sharing fine dining with good company is simply unrivaled.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I ever get married my three best "men" are going to be my three best friends (all women) and I may or may not be able to convince them not to dress in tuxedos and wear fake mustaches. If you're not up for that you should move right along.
You should message me if
Just go for it. I like meeting new people.

P.S. please don't be crazy
