My self-summary
I struggle with the online format of dating. Physical attraction is one thing, but an emotional/intellectual attraction is so difficult to find.

I'm mostly a happy-go-lucky person who loves sending warm, fuzzy feelz out into the world. I can also be pretty intense when it comes to the things I'm passionate about.

I love connecting with the humanness in the folks I meet, whatever that means. I'm looking for someone who can be introspective and self-aware as well as mindful of and caring toward others. I'm looking for someone who seeks to push boundaries and will challenge me and themselves.

Sufficiently vague? =]
What I’m doing with my life
I'm diving head-first into academia as a grad student and trying to stay connected to the real world through volunteer work.
I’m really good at
filling every hour of my day. Usually with fun things like nerding out about science, watching sports, drinking beer, hiking, cycling, talking/reading about social justice, streaming tv shows, cooking... in other words, I'm really good at procrastinating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I laugh a lot. Sometimes because I'm nervous, but mostly because I like to hang out with goofy people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ender's Game, Candide, Wuthering Heights, Dune, Harry Potter

TV Shows: Orphan Black, Transparent, Fresh off the Boat, Jane the Virgin, Grey's Anatomy (Am I the only one still watching this?)
