It's worth mentioning that my hair is currently much longer than I have a picture of.

I don't want nice things.
I shun wealth.
I try to make do with what I've got.
I've lived in a van for a year and a half, and am only on a three month reprieve before I get back to it in March.
I like using things in ways they're not meant to be used.
I'd rather learn how to do something than have someone else do it for me.
I believe in self-sufficiency.
Most of my clothes are in tatters—and I like it that way.
I like climbing things.
I like movement.
I like karaoke.
I love exploring.
I love adventures.
I love the intersection of artifice and nature. Dirty, broken concrete. Weed-choked train tracks. Shelled out buildings. The undersides of bridges. Urban ruins.
I want to travel more than just about anything.

I ride the line between INTP and ENTP. The NTP, however, is unquestionable.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as a freelance sound guy and AV tech, and I occasionally DJ downtempo/chill-out music ( http://www.mixcloud.com/DaytripPDX/ ).

My future ambitions are arranged more around projects than it is any given direction or career path, per se. For instance, there's a backpacking tour of Europe I want to take, in which I record street music from all across the continent, writing a travelogue/-blog work of the stories I hear and the experiences I have, focusing on the urban environment. I'd like to release the work online, alongside the recordings, on a pay-what-you-want model.

Then there's the sci-fi novel I want to write.

If I end up in grad school, my best current guess would be in neuropsychology, with the purpose of finding a behavioral therapy approach to ADHD treatment based on structural neuroscience. Really, anything I could do to help free people from the shackles of the pharmaceutical industry would fit my values well. But really: your guess is probably as good as mine.

Striving to be the best me that I can be and taking every opportunity to learn and grow into an even better, more loving me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Surviving.
(So far.)

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

MUSIC:
I listen to mostly chill electronic music, from any of many genres. I'm a sucker for sawtooths, syncopation, psychedelic squigglies, and space. Currently way into atmospheric IDM. And I will always love trip-hop.

Some of my favorites, past and present, are (in no real order) Emancipator, Portishead, Massive Attack, Radiohead, Floex, Shpongle, Télépopmusik (at least the tracks featuring Angela McClusky), and many, many more...

My guilty pleasure music (I lied. I don't feel guilty about it at all) is late '90s/early '00s "alternative." (Think Train, Barenaked Ladies, earlier Coldplay, Third Eye Blind, etc.)

BOOKS!
My heroes are Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, and Hunter S. Thompson.
In general, I mostly read sci-fi. I really appreciate quality world-building (William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Hannu Rajaniemi), and cutting insight into being human (Douglas Adams, Good Omens (so good on so many levels), PKD, Ender's Game).

MOVIES
I don't watch many movies anymore, but here are some past favorites:
A Scanner Darkly, Run Lola Run, anything by Hayao Miyazaki, Kikujiro, Monty Python, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind...

TV
I don't watch TV anymore either. (This tends to happen when you don't own one.) Some past TV favorites:
Battlestar Galactica, FLCL (!!!), Firefly, Home Movies, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Scrubs, Cowboy Bebop...

FOOD
I like food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
"Never" is a strong word. How about "Six things I very much enjoy and would prefer not to do without."

1) Music
2) Hands (mine, preferably).
3) Adventures!
4) Sunlight
5) Intelligent conversation
6) Smartassery
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the universe, everything.
My impact on the above.
The brain, the mind, behavior, the impact of technology on the human condition, the evolution of human society, and a plethora of ostensibly interesting topics.
Anything that piques my interest enough, really.
I think a lot.
Like, a lot a lot.
I like to think.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have no typical Friday night. I have no typical week.
