Let's see, how best to describe myself. I was captain of my basketball and volleyball teams in high school, but also the treasurer for the school band (and lead trumpet). I always seem to fit in fairly well with any group that I'm around, without really feeling like I fully belong in any group. That has sort of been the pattern that I've found recurring throughout my life.
I tend to do things for others, sometimes at the expense of doing things that I want. I have tried to work on this lately, but the fact that I enjoy making others happy means that I usually enjoy doing things from them, if that makes sense.
I've recently decided to give stand up a try...at least as a hobby. I've done one show at Yuk Yuk's, and have now been booked for four more shows. Am I any good? Well, I suppose that depends on your sense of humour, so feel free to judge for yourself:
I read a lot. I have recently become moderately addicted to watching movies from the 40s and 50s. I write in my spare time and hope to one day have something worth publishing. I play video games every now and then. I make time for my family (mother and brothers, I have no children). I sometimes wish that I were back overseas, working and exploring the world.
Now, technically this hasn't been a summary, but seriously, how much of a summary can you make on here? "I was born at an early age, grew up (quite a bit "up", actually), and here I am." Is that a better summary?
I am vexed by word limits, seeking a challenge, and want something new
