I've got a bit more of life under my belt than when I first made my profile on here at 20! Since then I graduated with my BA in Communication, moved to California, tried to do film and ended up in tech, started my own freelance technical writing business, and moved back to the east coast. Now I live in a cute beach town in New Jersey.
What I'm doing with my life right now: I'm a technical writer at a web hosting company. It's a good career and fairly interesting. I'm becoming quite the Linux geek. I'm also excited to be back on the east coast and near so many friends and family members. Most weekends you can find me doing something awesome with my excellent friends, or enjoying a quiet weekend at home with my books, video games, and crafts.
What's next: I want to get a second bachelor's degree in computer science and then go to grad school for natural language processing.
Someday in the future: I want to be friends with an AI and live on Mars.
I recently got convinced (it didn't take that much convincing) to join a LARP group with my friends. I am totally hooked - it's camping, acting, and D&D all in one, all things I love. LARPing, seeing friends and family, getting exercise, and running my freelance business are keeping me pretty busy for now, but if I was going to adopt a new hobby, I might want to get into something like 3D printing or swing dancing.
In my free time, I like to read, play video games and board games, go to the gym, walk along the boardwalk in Ventnor City, and read tech news on the internet.
I'm very smart and rather ambitious and confident. I'm always getting better at social skills, although I am a bit of an introvert and need some time to myself periodically.
I spend a lot of time thinking about how the universe really works. I'm a pretty serious armchair philosopher - I recently read Godel, Escher, Bach, and now I'm tackling Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. I really try to think everything through logically before deciding on the best way to live, and I am willing to change my beliefs and actions if I become convinced of a new way of thinking. That being said, I have been a Christian for a very long time, and that is very important to me.
I want to make the world a better place and have fun while doing it.
