I converse well, generally, and have found that my initial attraction to people generally stems from the quality of conversation. I've a bit of a snarky personality, but sometimes it takes a little while for this to surface. I do have a slight tendency to get anecdotey; it's a family trait and I've come to terms with that. I also suspect that if someone were to follow me around and transcribe my everyday speech into text, there would be a lot of parentheticals involved.
I have an officey-type day job which affords me the opportunity to have a few creative pursuits. A little theatre, a little art, and a fair amount of writing lately.
My approach to the arts has always been the jack-of-all-trades master-of-none route. My favorite projects are things I've never tried before, and my rather eclectic collection of art supplies can attest to this. And as most of the stuff I create tends to be for this show or that show, I typically see myself as more of a tinkerer or maker of things than an artist-artist.
