My self-summary
Can you summarize a sunrise,
or quantify a dream?
To describe what lies behind these eyes
is to try and grasp a flowing stream.

I try to be frugal, generous, playful, and sincere. I appreciate the temporary nature of existence, the infinite expanse of the mind, and the irony of culture being the process by which those truths are rebuked.
What I’m doing with my life
In August 2016 I'm starting a Non-Profit Organization with the goal of providing free bicycles and repairs to economically, socially, and physically disadvantaged people. I also hope to promote bicycling in a general sense and envision events and collaborations with multiple organizations to improve the cycling culture and infrastructure in the area.

I want there to be a bicycle in EVERY home. Mobility is one of the core components of human freedom and opportunity, and by extension, happiness.
I’m really good at
That which I set my mind to.
The first things people usually notice about me
My presence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Yes, I have strong affinities for some specific pieces of those things. Instead, here's a bit of insight perhaps more interesting than a mere list:

I cook a LOT so my favorite foods are alternatively something I make or something I didn't have to make. I'm more into active entertainment than passive though I have a profound appreciation for not being bored regardless of how. Crowds larger than my perceived ability to know everyone put me on edge so live music is generally out, although I love listening to friends jam and less-crowded venues are great - I enjoy a very wide range of music from classical to electronica to punk to Hmong traditional. I am ridiculously fond of writing.
The six things I could never do without
Humor
Freedom*
Curiosity
Insight
Determination
Love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How eloquently stated. It's a shame okcupid forgot a period at the end of that statement.
On a typical Friday night I am
Adventuring
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am oblivious when it comes to knowing if someone is interested in me romantically. I'm an otherwise socially intuitive person but there's just a weird blank spot in this area of awareness. Everyone I've ever dated has initiated the relationships; I'm very caring and affectionate once I know the interest is there but without something so blatant as an "I like you THAT way" statement or a kiss my mind just assumes things are platonic.
You should message me if
Your initiative is incited by the intriguing insights inherent in interesting linguistic fluidity. You have forward momentum in SOME area of your life - even if it's simply to relax for a while and find your center - and can be tolerant or those whose directions differ. You've read through my answer explanations and want to write to me about them.

I'm not all about "endless emails" but I REALLY prefer to get to know someone via writing back and forth for a few weeks prior to meeting in person. I'm rather shy and awkward with strangers, but if you find that sort of thing endearing I suppose we might make an exception - I have a HUGE attraction toward confident and assertive women who'd have no problem taking the lead in a conversation.
