I don't define myself by what I have done, but by my personal growth. By that, I mean that instead of saying, "I'm a good teacher," I say, "I'm always trying to be a better teacher."
I also try to stay active by running, lifting, and I try to bike places rather than drive there. So I guess I'm good at not sitting on my butt all day? Well, I guess I sit on my butt while biking, so...shoot.
As far as my personality goes, people probably notice my ironic sense of humor.
I like a broad range of movies, it all depends on mood. I almost never want to watch horror though. "Network" is the most terrifyingly prescient movie I've ever seen. I think that "The World's End" is the most underrated movie of the last decade. Also, I'm "that guy" who's seen "Primer" enough times that I actually, kind of, sort of get it.
As for music, I've been listening to mostly string quartets recently; I like music better when I can follow each part. A friend recommended Shostakovich, so I'm trying to become more familiar with his work.
I like to fancy myself a reasonable cook when really I'm only good at following directions. I'll cook and eat most any style.
From time to time, I tend to rage against whatever socioeconomic injustice has just been perpetrated, which I guess means that you have to be the kind of person who knows society is not yet post-racial, post-feminist, or post-class.
