My self-summary
I've tried to write my self-summary a few times. Not sure I've gotten it quite right.

I grew up all over the world. Some of my best memories are from diving in the Philippines, hiking in Bolivia, and the nightlife in Quito. I used to work in IT; I was pretty good at it but I wasn't passionate about it. I recently quit my job to go back to school full-time to study astrophysics. I am super happy and excited to be doing so. I am stepping into my favorite phase of my life so far. I'd love to have someone to share that with.

I like rain. I write poetry and am working on a novel which I think is actually pretty good. I love my dog more than anything.

I'm a huge fan of Blizzard games; really looking forward to Legion! I also love indy games, especially ones with a lot of personality. My rig is glorious. I'd love to meet another gamer.

I love Marvel movies. If you're Team Stark, we may have unresolvable issues. Ant Man was so much better than it needed to be.

I like Russian literature and the classics as much as H2G and LOTR. Was recently introduced to Terry Pratchett and I'm a huge fan.

I'm nerdy, compassionate, funny, and thoughtful, but I can be reticent, insecure, and a little hard on myself sometimes. I value communication above all other things, and work best with someone who is open and honest, values their personal space, but also really cares about genuinely connecting with someone.

I think this is my best attempt at a self-summary so far!
What I’m doing with my life
I study astrophysics at UMD.
I’m really good at
Fixing things. Pool. Listening to people and challenging them. Sharing excitement. Listening to cello music and brooding. Arguing. WoW, CS, Doom, COD. Sentence fragments.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Lolita, Pnin, 100 Years of Solitude, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Hamlet, Calvin and Hobbes, The Lord of the Rings, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

Movies: Groundhog Day, Joe Vs. The Volcano, Lost in Translation, Pan's Labyrinth, High Fidelity, Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Shows: Doctor Who, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Futurama, Rurouni Kenshin, Home Movies

Music: I love classical and trip hop. Basically anything without lyrics. I enjoy EDM but I hate dancing (I'd like it if I was better at it and I hope to learn someday). Lately I have a soft spot for bluegrass/country. Anyone in my car agrees to be subjected to country.

Food: Spicy food. Literally, that's the only qualifier. I will eat anything if it is spicy. For example termites are surprisingly spicy. For the longest time I thought eggplant was spicy, until I realized that I am allergic to eggplant and I actually have an allergic reaction that is painful, which I mistake for spiciness. And yes, I still eat eggplants after this discovery.
The six things I could never do without
The Internet. Dave's Insanity Sauce. Dogs. My computer. Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. Stars.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future. Cosmology. Exoplanets. Active galactic nuclei. Where I'm going to get lunch.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing homework. Interneting. Writing the next great American novel. Gaming. Reading. Sentence fragmenting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm scared of driving! But I've never gotten a ticket or been responsible for an accident. I just learned pretty late in life so I've never been too comfortable with it. No, I will not complain about driving out to see you.
You should message me if
I feel weird telling you why you should message me.
