My self-summary
I try to be as stress free as possible. Work to live, not live to work, and work smart not hard. I try to remind myself that we're merely a speck in human history and so we should just enjoy what we're given and not stress about what may seem overwhelming to us, although that's often easier said than done.

I think the things I enjoy the most are learning new things and becoming good at something new. I've always been the nerd and I'm absolutely fascinated with math and science and how the world works. Lately I've been breaking out of my shell and have even been described as "outgoing" by some which is surprising to me.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as an electrical engineer at a medical company. It's pretty easy going and I get paid enough to be able to do the things I like to do and try out whatever new activities I want.

I realize I kinda lucked out on that front. If I wasn't born liking math and science I would have never become an engineer.

I'm still trying to figure out where to go from here. I spend my free time occupying myself with anything that doesn't seem boring. I play the piano, do gymnastics, design and make whatever project is on my mind, and spend a fair amount of time just trying to learn new stuff.
I’m really good at
I have godlike skills in Tetris. I'd love a challenger (ground kontrol anyone?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: I like anything not super cliche and hollywood-y. I especially like mind-fuck films and stuff that gets you to think. A few off the top of my head (in completely random order): American Beauty, Jacob's Ladder, A Clockwork Orange, The Matrix, Trainspotting, Pulp Fiction.

Music: I mostly listen to classical music and electronica.

Food: I eat pretty much everything, although I avoid fast food (don't think I've had any in years), sugar/junk food, and lately been cutting out meat.

Shows: I try not to get sucked into never ending series. Just a few: Sherlock, breaking bad, peep show, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Seinfeld, the Simpsons.
The six things I could never do without
A piano
Wikipedia
Electrons to push around
GPS
Tools
A bike
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether society will be advanced enough to not go to complete shit when all our jobs are automated and there's no more work for anyone (somehow people have made this sound like a bad thing. Everything's done and there's nothing left for us to do?? GOOD!)

Whether we'll ever be able to figure out what consciousness is and other mysteries of the universe.

Electrons.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at home trying to read about quantum mechanics or out with friends doing the usual bar hopping thing. Or watching cat videos online.
