Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I really should edit this, since it doesn't appear that anyone
particularly cares about my long winded self summary, but
Eventually I may actually think of the perfect and most witty
introduction, but that is not today. Apparently I need to actually
mention the fact that I am gainfully employed and live on my own; I
work in the Loop and live in the Gold Coast (I either live in a
lavish and expensive home or a normal apartment; I'll let you guess
which one is true).
Some infallible internet tests inform me that I am an INTJ, make of
that what you will. I'm a bit of a nerd (classic sense, not in this
new 'cool/hipster' sense); I read a ton, know way too much about
way too many things, enjoy playing video games on occasion, and
despite all this, I am actually decently athletic. I'm pretty much
an open book, so feel free to actually message me to find out more.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Continuing to draw breath, which is nice. Not taking pictures of
myself, for whatever reason. I also spend about a third of my life
unconscious in the dark and good portion of the rest at work.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can hit my 9 iron pretty well; I once almost bowled a perfect
game (I had a nine spare in the ninth frame), though that was many
moons ago; I can build a computer from scratch (well, not in the
'if you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first
invent the universe' sense; and if you recognize the reference, you
get points). Correcting one's spelling and grammar mistakes (and I

Either my nice rack or that I'm rather sarcastic and full of
self-deprecating humor (I'm sure I'm deflecting or subconsciously
looking for affirmation or something). Also, that I look at least
half a decade younger than my age (yes, I am aware that I will love
this fact when I'm older)

Honestly, there's just too much to mention, but recently I've
re-watched Buffy/Angel, Arrested Development, BSG, all the
Stargates and don't really watch a ton of stuff that's currently on
(Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and a few others); I will say Daria
will always be one of my top shows. On a negative note, I cannot
stand any reality show (aside from mid-90s Road Rules, back when it
was just about driving around the country, as that sounds like a
ton of fun).
I could create a list of all the books on my bookshelves (2 1/2
floor to ceiling shelves full), but odds are, if it's well written
and not too self-indulgent, I'll enjoy it. Lately I've been on a
bit of a sci-fi kick (with Game of Thrones thrown in); I don't know
if it's just because I've been bored and want some escapism or
what. I've always enjoyed Steinbeck and Dumas, as well as Stephen
King on the lighter side. I minored in English, so there's also a
bunch of pretentious sounding stuff in there, too.
Musically, I can be rather eclectic, but other than rap/hip-hop or
electronica, I pretty much can listen to anything, given my mood
(not really a big top 40 fan, but I don't hate most of it). I tend
to listen to albums rather than singles thrown together into a
playlist. Lately I've been listening to Bad Religion a lot, with
some old Green Day, Lucky Boys Confusion, Nirvana, Decemberists,
The National, Bowling for Soup, Oasis, Beatles and Simon &
Garfunkel mixed in (amongst others).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
2.) Modern Medicine
3.) Indoor Plumbing
4.) Internal Combustion Engine
5.) The Wheel
6.) The Printing Press (preferably with movable type)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything and anything; my mind makes weird connections, kind of
like when you're reading wikipedia and click on random links within
the articles and somehow end up reading about the cricket
population of Malaysia or something equally random.
