My self-summary
I am watching TV while filling this out and have discovered a show called "Wicked Tuna." That was going to be my tumblr blog name. I am filing a suit.

OHKAY in all seriousness-- I'm back on OKstupid after a long period of absence; figure it's time to get back into the (exhausting) dating game. As a tech-enabled millenial, I love taking the bullshit out of dating and also hiding behind a screen.

I'm here to get off my couch and cautiously venture back out there -- new friends, a date here and there... you're picking up what I'm throwin down here

ENTJ if you believe in bucketing people into 16 groups.
What I’m doing with my life
My education says I'm a biologist with an extra English degree. Now I work for a giant company you may have heard of, crunching numbers in order to help said company achieve its renewable energy and sustainability goals. Also a few entrepreneurial ventures here and there.

Been a lotta places, seen a lotta faces: Chicago>Ithaca>DC>NYC>"the road">Chicago again>Portland. It makes it hard when your dearest friends are scattered all over the country, but I'm working to amass a groovy group out here.

Outside work, my fave thing in the world is collect old crap from estate sales, thrift stores, the curb etc. and make arty, less crappy crap out of it. To be very clear -- still crap.
I’m really good at
Undersharing

Having a ton of creative ideas and then not executing on them
The first things people usually notice about me
I have very long limbs, like an orangutan. Careful cuz I talk with my hands a lot. I've been told I have a pretty expressive face. I like to make faces at people, and babies.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Harry. Motherf*cking. Potter.

Movies: Wayne's World, iconic and most quotable cinematic masterpiece of our time

TV: IASIP. I will watch this show over and over and laugh till I piss myself... for the rest of my life.

Music: grew up on the Beatles. Stupid human trick: I know all the words to every Beatles song. Challenge me. I dare you.

Food: I love eating and I will eat just about anything, but I'm bad at being trendy about it. All the cool kids these days are foodies, aren't they?
The six things I could never do without
- Dogs over 50lbs
- Wikipedia. I am a hopeless, desperate, insatiatable information addict.
- My skates. Fun fact: I've been a figure skater my whole life. Apparently in Portland being a "skater" means you skateBOARD, which is cool but I shun it
- A carefully curated collection of podcasts and audiobooks
- Food that has been cooked for me, not by me. I often go to places wherein I can pay others to cook for me.
- Creative, out-of-the-box people to surround and inspire me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The everyday misuse of the English language. It's so fascinating! I also, regrettably, think about my job a lot and what I will do for work in the future. Aren't "jobs" so stupid and arbitrary?
On a typical Friday night I am
Hiding in the corner drinking Andre out tha bottle. OR at a show, bar etc...

In all honesty, 50% likelihood I'm on my couch. I love it there :D
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was a VERY late bloomer. Still will always be that goody-goody who none of the boys liked in high school.
You should message me if
You recycle diligently.

You like to look under rocks.

And great jumping jesus christ on a pogo stick -- please be smart and articulate. I have no time for people from whom I cannot learn anything.
