Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm from the Chicago suburbs. Back in February I moved to Guam to
take a job, but I'm back home for Christmas for two weeks. I'm
typically rather polite, but sometimes I become a bit more more
playfully pointed. I can be reserved, and I can also be overly
talkative when I'm engaged in interesting conversation. I'm
something of a dilettante rather than an actual Renaissance Man.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working as a law clerk for a judge.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a pretty good cook and an occasional poet. I fenced (the
sword-fighting sport, not selling stolen goods) in college, but I'm
out of practice now. I'm also a decent skier. I keep meaning to get
around to learning how to scuba dive. I can converse well, as long
as the subject is interesting. I like to think I'm rather good at
writing and thinking. I excel at taking standardized tests, for
whatever that's worth. I would have been a good scholar-official in

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Information (particularly news, I get antsy on vacations if I don't
have internet access or decent newspapers)
My iTunes library
Either a running internal monologue, or
Internal background music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics, law, history, philosophy, strategy, business and
economics, art and aesthetics, social conflict, culture, fashion,
sport, and the books of various long dead thinkers. Also lots of
rather less worthy things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On Guam the options are a bit more limited than in the big city.
Often I'm out getting drinks with friends. I go to the movies
fairly often. If I'm not going out I often try my hand at cooking
something new, and perhaps play videogames or read.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was about six or seven I got my hand caught in an elevator
door. Fortunately my father pulled it open before it could injure
me. But I was still terrified of elevators for the next few years.
