My self-summary
Ah hello there. I moved to Charlotte around the tail end of 2011 for a software programming job. Otherwise, I'm on here because I was a social late bloomer, and don't have enough of a social group to have found any serious emotional/romantic connection outside the office/meetups/etc.

Oh, and for those whom must ask:
-INTP to a T (though the I is borderline).
-no kids/drug history/criminal record.
-"History/tech" nerd, not much of a "fandom" nerd.
-Agnostic-ish but lean towards scientific empiricism usually.
-Never really got into following college sports, though I did fencing (mostly foil, some epee) and archery for what that's worth.

I'm crafty, forthright, and inquisitive.
What I’m doing with my life
==What are you doing with your life?==
Work, work, work. Study. Cleanup, maintenance. Some videogames, some literature, some meetups here and there.

==Where do you see yourself in the next five years?==
"I want a wife, house, white picket fence, a dog named Skip, and for the wife to not actually be a Stepford android duplicate that will slowly take over the remainder of the neighborhood..."

In all seriousness, I would prefer for the following:
-Professional: Moving upward towards being a lead programmer, application architect, or some other position that is in the middle of being a pure code-jockey, and strict managerial role. Grabbing a few IT certifications wouldn't hurt either.
-Personal: Travel more! I've only been out of the country once. Put in any "craft skills" or "survival skills" on top of that.
-Relationships: Finding a good partner. I don't believe in a "the one", so much as two people motivating each other to do more. Also, more long-term friends.
I’m really good at
==Coding Like a Boss==
If given 100 lines of code, I can probably do everything it does with 20 lines.
Sometimes I write code to write my code for me. And it works!
I used to play piano awhile back. Although the current apartment sadly lacks the room for one (I would love to play The Masochism Tango :P ), most my old fingerwork is still intact.
"How can you type without even looking at the keyboard?"

==Inspired Laziness==
Once upon a time, I was asked to translate a database script into another query language. I did so. I was then asked to translate at least a hundred more.
I flat-out told the person requesting that I honestly did not feel like doing it, and if asked to manually do it, I probably would make a lot of errors. Boredom leads to carelessness after all. *However*, I offered to write a quick-and dirty program to automatically parse and convert the queries in question and within two weeks, there was a happy client, and a sense of knowing that I wasn't just a mindless drone.

==Survival Cooking==
I was diagnosed with celiac when I was young. Between that, and dairy allergies, I've pretty much been gluten-free/dairy-free for most of my adult life. Naturally, this meant that come college-time, cafeteria food didn't make the grade. Of course, between roommate potlucks or emergency food preparations, it's lead to conversations like:
>"Hey you want some shakshouka?"
>"WHAT IS THAT EVEN?"

==Patience/Willingness to Teach==
"Thanks for taking the time out of your workschedule to instruct everyone on this program."
"SO MANY ART TUTORIALS! THANKS A MILLION!"
The first things people usually notice about me
==Spanish Surname==
"Is your last name Italian?"
"You're Colombian? But you're white."

==Wikispock==
"How do you remember so many things/know so much/etc?"
"Do people tell you that you remind them of [Sheldon/House/Spock/Monk]?"

==Crazy-prepared==
"You keep spare screwdrivers in your backpack?"
"You keep a hammer in your passenger seat?"
"What *aren't* you carrying in that backpack?
"How many weeks of food *do* you store?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
==Books==
-Notable Classics: Count of Monte Cristo, The Man Who Was Thursday, The Godfather
-Classic Science Fiction: Dune, I Robot, Starship Troopers, Stranger in a Strange Land...
-Some assorted historical/alternate-history stuff: The Flashman series, Yiddish Policemen's Union, etc.

==Movies==
Usually I find it easier to rate by director, unless it's a hit-and-miss director. That said:
-Stanley Kubrick (whether to credit him for "AI" is another debate).
-John Carpenter (up until Escape from LA)
-Ridley Scott (up until Body of Lies)
-Ivan Reitman (up until Ghostbusters 2).
-Mel Brooks (up until Men in Tights).

==Shows==
I don't have cable, so it's netflix and the internet for this one:
-The Daily Show/Colbert Report.
-It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

==Music==
-Satirical Music: Tom Lehrer is still a classic, as well as a good deal of Frank Zappa's stuff.
-Filk: For a classic example, look up "Banned From Argo" by Leslie Fish, or "When I was a Boy" by Frank Hayes.
-Some Trance: I keep up with A State of Trance, and pick stuff up from there. Currently, this includes most stuff from Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin, ATB, and some Starchaser/Hoyaa/Aly&Fila.-
-Obligatory Classical Music Part: Requiem in D Minor, Dvorak's New World Symphony, Khachaturian's Symphony No. 2 - The Bell

==Food==
I sadly have a restricted diet and am gluten and dairy-free. As such, I learned to cook early. If I had to choose a "favorite" (thing I fix a lot), I would probably say hummus; nowadays I use it as a carrot dip.

Currently I'm trying out the smaller grocers/"ethnic markets" for specialty ingredients. I haven't done much with fish preparation (fried salmon once), but am planning to visit Clean Catch soon.
The six things I could never do without
I'm used to scarcity. That said, here we go:
-Caffeine: Still trying to cut back, though I require a lot.
-Limes: Useful for most types of cooking.
-Math: Number theory, magic numbers, pseudorandom numbers, set theory, linear matrix multiplication...being able to measure the world is a mark of power.
-The many many open-source projects that make my life "easier" when writing code.
-My toolbox: Screwdrivers, soldering iron, hammer, dremel, hacksaw...

Want to be #1?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Historically, work has occupied a lot of my thoughts. To ensure I am still thinking for myself, I got a notebook and started writing thoughts. Notably, a lot of the thoughts tend towards self-improvement, upcoming events, or assorted personal tech projects.

Currently I have something along the lines of:

==Self-Improvement==
"Note to self: Get in shape."
"Note to self: Learn how to host a wine party."
"Note to self: Get a better sofa setup."
"Note to self: Learn how to repair car dents."
"Note to self: Have fun."

==Project Ideas==
Just typing out this section, I realized I really should set up a wordpress account. Put "Completed Personal Projects" there.

"Instructables is a cool website for DIY Projects. Its interface overemphasizes pictures though. I better write a webcrawler to index all the articles by category/subcategory." (NOTE: This one is completed)
"Damn, I'm out of shape. But I can't half-ass it at the gym. I need a system. I'm going to write a small database to log my gym performance, and start crunching statistics. Now to progressively add weight, alter reps, and all this stuff."
"That mech engineer was onto something. I should build that doc-oc arm...of course, I don't know a damn thing about kinematics or pneumatics 101. Whom do I go to for help?"
On a typical Friday night I am
In descending order of priorities/availability, I might either be:

-Supporting a project release for work.
-On a dinner/wine date, optional gallery/museum crawl.
-Attending a worthwhile meetup.

If none of the above, default to:
Hit the gym, fight off cubicle fat, then videogame. Or more recently, "code for self/study languages."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, there's the whole "no prior relationship/no sex" bit if that sets off any red flags.

Or if this question is supposed to be taken less seriously:
My wallet was ripped on one side, and I had a sock with a hole in it. My solution was to unravel the sock for thread, and stitch the wallet back up.
I’m looking for
