Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'll admit it, I used to be a real conservative, support-the-empire
kind of guy. Go where you're told, do what you're asked, take no
questions, give no answers, stay alive. It worked. Really well,
actually - at least for a while.
You can't stay ahead of disaster forever, though, and I'm a
different kind of guy now. Real liberal - everyone's more or less
the same inside, you know? People draw false distinctions to make
themselves feel unique, but if you've got a brain and a pulse,
you've got a whole lot of the same things going for you as anyone
Which brings me to what I'm interested in: meeting people with a
brain. I like thinkers, you know? Philosophers, sociologists,
scientists, engineers, writers, perpetual students, that sort of
thing. They've got a unique flavour to them that I just can't help
but want to be around.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I guess it sort of depends on what you define as a life. Everyone
has a different definition for what it means to be alive, you
Some people don't really feel alive unless they're doing something
dangerous, or training to run the next big marathon in their
existence. Some other people are fine with just curling up with a
good book, and finding a meaning to their existence in the products
of someone else's mind.
I can relate to both of those types of people, I suppose. I spend a
lot of time walking around, seeking out life experiences that I
haven't already sampled.
But the latter is really what calls to me. I guess I've been
spending a fair deal of my time lately trying to find meaning to my
own existence in the minds of others. And it's really rewarding,
too. Sometimes it can be a little short-lived, but new experiences
never last. It's funny how we've all got that in common.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
When I was younger (it's funny, it seems like an entirely
previously life, these days) I spent a lot of time taking classes
and trying out new things, and picked up a lot of skills. I've
forgotten a lot of it now, though. Sometimes you learn things that
you just never get to use, you know? It's all right, I guess.
Lately though, people have been saying that my strongest quality is
that I just never give up. Life closes a door, I open a window.
Life knocks me down, I get right back up. Life goes up a fire
escape, I climb over everyone else to get to the roof, too. Life
takes off in a helicopter, I find a way to hang on for the
Yeah, my strongest quality is definitely that I'll do anything in
my pursuit of life.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a little ashamed to admit it, but the first thing people
usually notice about me is that I'm generally a whole lot more
interested in meeting them than they are in meeting me.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a creeper or anything (I've met more
than enough to know the difference), I just come on kind of strong
sometimes. It sets a weird tone for initial introductions, I
Once that introduction phase is over though, things tend to smooth
over with everyone I meet. All my friends and I have grown really
close. We 'get' each other, you know? We even seem to develop the
same goals and values pretty quickly. It's just the meeting new
people part that can be tricky.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

To be honest I haven't had a lot of time to appreciate the finer
arts lately. It's not that I didn't use to value these things, I've
just been really consumed with other, more pressing matters. I
guess you could say I've been too hungry for new experiences to
appreciate the finer things in life.
In the past I've been really interested in books of all sorts,
television and movies too. I've read and seen a lot of fiction -
some of it believable, some not. Fantasy and science fiction I
always found really interesting, they'd always have plausible
justifications for why horrible things happen to people, and a way
back from the brink of disaster, like a cure for any problem.
Real life isn't like that, though. There isn't always a cure.
Sometimes you just have to move on. Just keep moving on. One step
at a time. Forever. You know?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend most of my time thinking about where I'm going next. It's
hard to meet new people if you're always standing around in the
same place, is my philosophy. I'm always on the move, as a result.
I'll be walking around downtown one day, but you might see me in
the subway tunnels on the north side the next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Actually, I like to take a break on Friday. You can't spend every
waking moment trying to actively accomplish your goals, it's just
not good for the body. I'll generally just sit myself down
somewhere, not do a whole lot, and wait for people to come to me.
You'd be surprised how often it works, when you aren't moving much.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty afraid of getting cut. Knives, swords, axes, that sort
of thing, you know? The whole thought of slashing weapons just
gives me the creeps.
I also get weirded out by priests. Rabbis, too. Any kind of cleric,
really. I don't really have anything against them, they just make
me feel uneasy. I'm not really sure why, I guess you could say
something about them just turns me off.
