Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I work in tech support because I'm a nerd and I'm decent with
people. I'm probably going back to PCC in the spring for physics
and business. I like rock climbing (traversing and bouldering--I'm

with. Try messaging me for something a little more representative
than metadata about music taste and question answers.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm "building a career in technical support and data entry"
according to my resume, and that's not entirely untrue. I'm working
toward advanced degrees in physics and business, although with my
lack of self control it might end up being physics and economics.
Yeah, economics is the fun major I'm trying to be responsible and
avoid. Did I mention I'm a nerd?
Learning to cook Thai food. Learning how Chinese is different from
Thai food. Wishing everything was just Thai food.
And then, you know, more nerdiness. A career in science, eventually
my own business.

probably several of the following:
Playing video games (if you care, I'll tell you which ones).
Perusing Wikipedia articles on carbon isotopes, etymology, actors,
writers, computer hardware.
In the ghetto little workout room at my apartment complex.
Or something completely different, like at a bar, playing pool to
avoid my friend's primary interest in bars: hitting on strangers
badly, which I'm not very good at or fond of trying to do.
