My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I'm tempted to begin with my career path (marketing at present), but that's honestly not the most important thing about myself. It's just what I do for bits of paper. I'm into a lot of different things, anyway (see below), and marketing is a slim sliver of that.

I've had a lot of jobs (editor, data and assessment coordinator, programmer, manager), and I'm trying now to get involved with creating internet infrastructure in developing countries. We'll see! :)

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 me.

Sometimes my opinions seem mutually exclusive... For example, I'm an incorrigible romantic, but I don't believe in free will and I prefer rationality as a governing force to emotions or gut feelings. I can't really explain it other than to say I have an arbitrary value set.

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 read and write (hooray literacy).
-I take photographic portraits and urban scenes sometimes. I've shot some weddings, usually as a second shooter, but they're so consuming that I don't often accept invitations.
-I freelance with businesses occasionally, both domestically and internationally.
-Lately I've taken to drawing on my tablet (Surface Pro), but I'm still learning, so I know the proportions are off. Working on correcting that.
-I program (in C#, WPF) and do a bit of web design on the side.
-I volunteer with Community Bucket, which I greatly recommend
-I invest my savings whenever possible (savings accounts lose you money!)
-I try to stay organized and minimalistic. Mostly because I find messiness overwhelming. My calendar system usually repulses the more carefree of my friends.
-I order 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.
Writing/Editing
I write short fiction/poetry (though I was much more active when I was younger, more's the pity), and 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've also written some web copy.

Photography
I've shot three weddings so far, but I need to invest in better equipment before I handle more, methinks (Update: I now have better equipment and it gives me the happies). I shoot portraits of my friends all the time. 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.).

Programming
I've loved programming since I was introduced to it at 14 with Mark Overmars' Game Maker, but I could never program as a career. That would suck the fun out of it. I know Winforms, C#, WPF, and Blitzmax pretty well. I've also made some software for companies in the last couple years.

Graphic Design
I've produced a variety of logos, postcards, flyers, and other marketing materials for companies recently, which was pretty much the bee's knees. 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 tend to use vocabulary words in ordinary conversation, a product of growing up hooked on Jeeves and Wooster novels. I'm also pretty organized, and I'm into EVERYTHING.

Music:
I haven't the time to list my favourites here. That would take ages. What's the matter with you, 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."

Food:
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.
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 so 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. TO BE ADDED LATER.
6. TO BE ADDED EVEN LATER THAN THAT.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Humanism, overcoming my own biases, and love.
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 attempt 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!
A friend gave me a yellow umbrella because of reasons.
