I have found that my initial attraction to people generally stems from the quality of the conversation being had. Not to say that that's all there is to it, but words do an awful lot for me. I've a bit of a snarky personality, though 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.
