Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
At heart, I'm a philosopher, an artist and a mad scientist. Pushing
the boundaries of this world and creating my own when this one
simply won't do. In practice, I tend to choose loafing around and
trivial diversions over getting something done.
As far as maturity goes, I was never young, but still a child from
time to time.
One thing I should probably mention: My username, "Diamondshade".
It's something I came up with when I was 13, and it sounded really
cool back then. I've used it all around the net since (Though
apparently there's a Texan who's set on claiming it for himself)
and carried it over here as well. It may be slightly embarassing at
this age, but it's the alias I once chose for myself, and I don't
believe in having regrets.
For what it's worth, I fairly consistently get INTJ on personality
tests - though the J has almost zero weight behind it.
On faith: I've been called the worst Discordian ever. I've
questioned everything, then questioned everything again, and so on.
After all, a conclusion is only where you stopped thinking. The
result of all this is a fragmented worldview that delves deeply
into the realms of philosophy. The good news is that I've started
to make some sense of this whole mess. The bad news is that I lack
the words and coherence to communicate my ideas well.
I guess I should state some things in simple terms. I am
-A theist. I do not believe in a god.
-An atheist. I do not believe that no being that could be
considered a god could conceivably exist. Actually, I can conceive
of several such hypothetical beings.
-An agnostic. I do not believe that it must be impossible to obtain
knowledge concerning the existence of higher beings, discounting
extreme solipsism, which I've sort of broken through, even.
I'm an interested to hear and debate the religious or spiritual
beliefs of other people, and I'm willing to let people believe
whatever they wish as long as they don't forcibly push their views
on other people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I try to look at my life as a piece of art. It's sort of a work in
progress, and most perspectives probably can't appreciate it.
That's ok, though. I create mainly for my own sake, anyway.

Music is a trickier topic. I mostly only like individual pieces.
There are, however, a few artists that I've learned to appreciate,
though fandom or subculture has never been my thing, in music or
otherwise. Without further ado, such artists include:
Games. Now we're talking.
