Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, I'm a guy, and I'm filling out a self-summary. I'm smart with
a number of things, though it's always funny to see that there are
a lot of things I just don't get! What a strange life!
I sit around computers for the 40-hour workweek, and am finding
myself increasingly busy (in a good way) after work and on the
weekend. Martial arts has been fun over the years, and I really
appreciate the freedom of movement. Actually, I really appreciate a
lot of things. I'll often observe something (physical or an idea)
and think, "Hm, that's interesting."
I'd like to think I know myself pretty well too... it's important
for people to know themselves.
I'm not very opinionated on most issues. As long as people treat
each other well and take care of each other, most things will work
themselves out. I don't like the idea of people being really
opinionated, but not having a strong basis for those opinions. It's
fine for people to be religious, but to say that "this is the way
to fix the economy" or somesuch seems silly to me. There are very
few people in the country who I'd entrust our economic policies to,
and odds are, I don't know any of them.
There's Reddit, and I check /b/ every now and again. I took a few
years of Computer Engineering at school, then dropped it for
English. Damn Operating Systems.
Oh, and to be honest, I haven't really found sitcoms to be very
funny lately. I don't watch much TV at all, but I've seen a few
episodes of The Office and Community... and didn't really find
myself laughing. Am I missing something? I like Steve Carell
(though it's now Will Farrell) and Donald Glover (Derrick Comedy!),
but I just didn't really get into the shows. I enjoyed Friends back
in the day, and love the memorable parts of the Simpsons. When I
was younger, I definitely put time into The Fresh Prince, Family
Matters, and Seinfeld. Have times changed?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Professional job. Future rock star. Nix that, I just quit my job to
go teach English in Japan.
My life is fueled by a fear of regret, so I've gotta make sure that
I do everything I need to do to prevent that regret from ever
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Typing, grammar, thinking. This is a tough one to answer. Those are
kinda throwaway answers. I love to sing, and have gone from
completely sucking (six years ago) to being decent. You know, voice
lessons and all that.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My face. People don't forget my face easily, since it's unique, I
guess. My arms, too. People actually pay attention to this shit?
Well, I guess I'm fortunate, so I won't complain.
I'm really nice to strangers, so people usually peg me as a nice
guy. Of course, that also means they often think I'm a bit of a
pushover (well I do let a good number of things slide). I have no
sense of (spatial) direction. I'm not very confrontational, but I
know how to stand up for some things.
Oh, and that I'm a pretty good teacher. Empathy can go a long way!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music! ...even though I listen to the same songs over and over
....and five other things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Myself. Hah! Not to sound self-centered, but I think everyone has a
"common denominator" of sorts, so by studying myself as a person, I
can learn a lot about others.
Singing. It may sound strange to think about singing, but
overthinking seems to be my approach to a lot of activities. :P
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cursing my tessitura, learning to be more comfortable upside down.
...then I sprained my ankle. I'd like to go back and work on this,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a pretty open person. If you ask (and you're not a psychopath),
I'd probably tell you. At the same time, I'm a bit of a private
person. I like to try to be modest about a number of things. I
guess it's strange.
I got raspberry preserves on my nose a minute ago. I was making a
sandwich. Don't tell anyone. :)
