My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I used to be a brainy little introvert, not that you'd know it. The trick was developing a healthy interest in other people. :P

I would like to think I'm a very open, caring and genuine soul, not to mention a staunch feminist ally. But I'll let you judge those kinds of things for yourself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Current job is in heavy industry, making rail cars. Slight change of pace from being senior-tier Apple IT, but welding's been a fun skill to learn and the pay's alot better.

Beyond that, up to the usual creative hijinks- making fictional worlds, stories, and games. If you want more details there, just ask and I'll happily talk your ear off about it. ;)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
One of my psych classes had a similar question on a day 1 worksheet, "Name 3 great things about yourself."

I wrote:
1. Humility
2. Wit

Next class, it was handed back with a helpful teacher's note explaining that I needed to give 3 answers, and should turn the worksheet back in once I'd done so. I added "Acceptance."
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Dunno. Maybe how I talk? As one college friend put it: "you'll use 5-syllable words and know what they mean, only for your follow-up sentence to be something like 'screw that noise."

Course, I also speak too fast if I'm not paying attention. These days I can slow myself down, but you might have to point it out first. ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a ton, and always have. Biggest favorites might be Neal Stephenson, Patrick Rothfuss, George R. R. Martin and China Mieville. Lots of manga too; off the top of my head I'd say Fullmetal Alchemist, Mushishi, Vinland Saga, and Lucifer & the Biscuit Hammer.

My music collection's all about finding the best stuff to run to (I travel about thirty miles on foot every week). Some enduring favorites include the Glitch Mob, Infected Mushroom, Kamelot, and Florence + The Machine.

I enjoy movies & TV shows, but don't watch too many of either at the moment. Two shows I've been planning to dive back into are Burn Notice and The Wire.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Alot of things! But the top three are probably games, stories, and people.

I see all three as very interesting and worthwhile, especially in terms of how they're interconnected.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing something terribly geeky, usually with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do my best to be an open book, which isn't hard when you make a habit of it. The most personal thing, that isn't veering into TMI territory...

I guess the fact that I don't know my own heart very well. It can take a long time for me to understand how I feel about someone.... or maybe it's just rare for me to fall for someone, as much as I'd like to.
