Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Rebounding from a bit of an odd decade--lost a parent to a
accident, went back to college for a masters in education, got
hired at a pretty bad high school, got burnt out, got depressed,
broke up with an alcholic girlfriend...
...and now that I'm getting out of the depression--well, it's an
amazing yet strange feeling...
I'm getting up before breakfast to exercise--never did that
I've been working on the largest computer program that I've ever
written--and I used to write code for a living. Hell, I'm a MUCH
better programmer now than I was then.
I actually have vague hints of muscle definition in my upper
legs--which is pretty amazing since I spent my high school years
getting mostly A's and playing Nintendo games.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Rebuilding. Learning how to write comptuer code better than ever
before. See above.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
* Befriending dogs. (Still somewhat uncomfortable around cats, but
cats like that sort of thing. Cats tend to like people who Respect
* Explaining fractions
* Researching odd bits and bobs on the Internet
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Tall" tends to trump everything else, especially at the grocery
store. Yes, I can get that object from the top shelf for you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food: I've a soft spot for Camerones a la Diabla and West-Mex in
general. Italian food is also good. I find "American" food tends to
be on the boring side but I certainly enjoy the exceptions!
Books: Most of my reading has been online lately. Currently reading
/Forged/ by Bart Erhman.
Webcomics: xkcd, Gunnerkrieg Court, El Goonish Shive, Rusty and
Co., Erfworld, Order of the Stick, etc.
Favorite Grave of the Fireflies (normally don't go for tearjerkers,
but this movie just does everything it wants to do so well).
Recently Seen: Felidae (German animation about housecats solving a
string of cat murders. Not bad, not great), Troll 2 (So bad its
AWESOME), bits and pieces of Star Wars Episodes 2/3 on TV (George
Lucas, how on earth did you turn Samuel L. Jackson into a
Music: Rush, Placebo, Braid, Pennywise, Persone, Ani DiFranco, Me
First and The Gimme Gimmes (punk covers of pop songs), Tim Minchin,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* Reading material
* Mental challenges
To a lesser degree:
* Currently hooked on taking a mile walk before breakfast
* various Linux programs and utilities. Having powerful text
editors and the like built into the operator system is habit
Could live without, but I'd be cranky:
* Music. Currently favoring punk with positive lyrics, but that'll
change without advance notice.
