My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Moved here in mid-February, and in a little less than two months I've already done better for myself than either of the previous two cities I've moved to. Operation: Make the Best of It is working so far.

About me? I'm a total geek, part hippie, complete artist freak in the vein of performance, outgoing and gregarious, painfully shy and insecure, switching from saying the clever line that makes everyone bust a gut to that awkward moment where I trail off and people just sort of stare...

I'm passionate about story telling and all the different methods one can do so. I think our society undervalues the art of story telling itself. In that vein, Jungian Archetypes and The Heroes Journey are damn solid mainstays, though I'm quite open to shaking it up.

I'm kind of starting my adult life over, new job, new city, but thankfully there are some good old friends from the AK (by way of Juneau, let's just say, you Seattle peeps, you don't really get as much rain as you think you do) which is making all the difference.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Moved up from Portland, for the record, I still like the city itself better. Better food, better strip clubs, cleaner down town, better bus system, and better food carts. Seriously, someone tried telling me Seattle had a good food cart scene, I've seen all of three and no dedicated pods, WTF?!

Ahem... anyway, I'm still digging Seattle, as a friend pointed out, the things Portland didn't have was a good job for me, and a good social life. Whereas I struggled in the Rose City, the Rat City has provided those two things for me quite quickly. Now that I have a solid living arrangement, and the new job is going well, I plan on moving forward with the acquisition of a vehicle so I can traverse those crazy Seattle highways with your goddamn left lane exits. Especially since, and no offense, but your public transit system is actually a step backwards from what I've been using for three years. It's good, better than Anchorage that's for damn sure, but not nearly as good as Portland. They should really consider getting a day pass set up here, makes a huge difference.

Beyond that, I'll be hauling the rest of my stuff up next week, and proceeding with my creative projects after that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The past couple years I have been flooded with ideas. One is so so so close to fruition I can almost taste it. Don't ask about them if you don't want to know about them, because there are many, and I love to ramble once I get started.

I love this list, no matter how often I change this profile, this is the list that will grow. I might condense it some day, but I kind of like it this way, we'll see which way the wind blows come the future.

Working on Mark Z. Danielewski's "House of Leaves". An amazing book, and not a light read.

Finch, Jeff VanDermeers fungal Steam Punk noir, a damn good read if a little odd in it's style.
Jim Butcher's fantasy series Codex Alera. He is also the author of the Dresden Files series which kicks much ass.
Fond of Glen Cook's Black Company books. Slowly getting through the third omnibus, keep running into distractions though, been spacing it out with some H.P. Lovecraft and other books. Working on Jim Butchers "Side Jobs", a compilation of his Dresden Files short stories.

Steven Brust, Steven Erickson, Stephen King, yep, lots of Stephens/Stevens in the literary world. George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. H.P. Lovecraft stories. Old Pulp Fiction sci-fi and fantasies. Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series. Fantasy Novels in General. Just about any graphic novels published by Vertigo. (I.E. Sandman, Lucifer, Preacher, Hellblazer, etc) Fables graphic novel series.
Neil Gaimen books. Gene Wolfe books.
And many many more.

I like a wide variety of movies, I am a movie junkie, not to be confused with a movie snob, unless it's Will Ferrell or Rob Zombie, fuck those guys.

Banshee Chapter is quite the chilling horror film. Just saw Space Pirate Captain Harlock, and while anime is kind of low on my nerd totem pole, Leiji Matsumoto knew his shit.
Personally I think Django Unchained is one of Quentin Tarantino's finest.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hate this part.
Um, my cat,
the written word,
something with which to write words (preferably involving typing, I hold pencils too low and too tight so my hand cramps; I also type faster than I write. A pity shorthand is a dead art.),
something,
something,
dark side.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The next step. I have a new home in Shoreline with some pretty cool roommates, a good job, now to take care of that car issue. I got a late start towards getting my life on track, so I kind of have to switch to the turbo controller now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
What is this Friday you speak of? I need to find it, we have to talk, it's about how it is going to become my Sunday soon.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
So, they need to learn the definition of private, so let's ignore the word and replace it with 'personal'. Hmmm, I didn't get a license until I was 28. There's a long boring story as to why, I'll spare you though. Also, I have scared myself enough while writing thaf I check the windows to make sure no one is looking in. Three guesses as to what I like to write. Until recently the semi colon scared the crap out of me, we talked some, and it turns out it's pretty nice; still makes me nervous though.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a geek or geek friendly. I need a partner in crime, platonic or otherwise, I have schemes to hatch and shenanigans to pistol whip, and it'd be more fun doing so with a lady-type companions.

If Cthulhu told you to, that'd be an acceptible answer as well.
