My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I'm Patrick. I'm eating sour patch kids as I write this, which improves the whole profile writing experience enormously.

I'm an introvert who likes to be social. I try to stay involved in as many projects as I can, whether through volunteering, art nights, side business ventures, or weekends spent exploring Atlanta. (I just visited a Dwarf House for the first time; did you know they'll fry the nuggets in sauces for you and give you cheese dip for your fries?!).

I'm here because OKCupid is another avenue to make new acquaintances. I'm not embarrassed to be online dating, and you shouldn't be, either! Better than sitting by rotary phones for suitors to call, I'd say.

On the personal side, I try to see from every point of view. I think I'm rather calm and understanding when it comes to relationships. My friends are diverse but all kind, if that says anything about what I value.

I'm generally on top of things, but I still have issues with cooking rice (how much water again?) or remembering to take the garbage to the curb. Luckily I have roommates who are open to saving me from myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a marketing consultant--a recent career change. And I'm very glad for it. The grass really was greener, the concrete whiter.

Additionally... I'm into:

Reading/writing (hooray literacy)
Photography (weddings, portraits, products)
Selling oil paintings
Comics, reading and writing
Web design
Volunteering (my favourite location so far is MedShare)
Investing (savings accounts lose you money!)
Staying organized (mostly because I find messiness overwhelming; my calendar system usually repulses the more carefree of my friends.)
Ordering foreign candy off the internet. It's the only thing I don't budget, because I never spend that much and hey, live a little!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've always wanted to scratch out a proper novel. I've been the Editor-in-Chief of a literary magazine, and I've edited a couple college textbooks. That sounds like it would be fun, but it is not so much?

I recently got a shoot-through umbrella, but I can't use it because I don't yet have an umbrella stand. Funny how life works. (Update: I now also have an umbrella stand. Life is really coming together for me.)

I've loved programming since I was introduced to it at 14 with Mark Overmars' Game Maker. I know Winforms, C#, WPF, and Blitzmax pretty well. I've also made utility software for a few companies in the last couple years.

Graphic Design
Fake movie posters of friends. Logos, postcards, flyers, and other marketing materials. I just finished some maps the other day. Yes, maps. Of places. Like coves and things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm quiet in person if I don't know anyone else in the vicinity. I talk too much when I want to get to know someone. I like to plan experiences a lot. I try to be a kind person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I haven't the time to list my favourites here. That would take ages. Too ambitious a question, OKCupid. Well--okay--one thing unique to me, I suppose, is that I don't listen to artists. I listen to songs. I don't buy entire albums--only the songs that interest me. So if someone says, "Do you like The Beach Boys," I would answer, "I like three songs by them."

Seapak Ahi Tuna. I promise, it's delicious.
Spaghetti O's with Meatballs. My comfort food. Also my Forgot-to-Plan-for-Dinner food.
Napoleon Bon-bons.
Fried ravioli!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The internet. Where would I be without access to the good old netterwebs? Limitless learning, communication with my foreign friends, narwhal bacon, Homestar Runner??
2. My cell phone. It is my sole link to many acquaintances, and it acts as a portal to item 1.
3. Friends and new friends. I would feel very isolated without friends. Solitary confinement would be particularly effective against me, I fear.
4. Order. I need organization. If everything's higgletypigglety I can't concentrate. Worse yet is a responsibility lurking at the corner of my memory. I write down EVERYTHING.
5. Optimization.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Loving where I am, utilitarianism, overcoming my own biases, and friends.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most often, I'm hanging out with roommates at the house. We might attempt a pub in downtown Decatur, or else try out new games like Hnefatafl, which I assure you is a game and not, in fact, a sneeze. If I'm not feeling well, there may also be a string of Parks and Recreation episodes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes when I'm at a community event--say, the lantern parade on the beltline--I can get overwhelmed at all the friends I'll never be able to make, for whatever reason, as they walk by. How many awesome people do I just never meet?
