My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I know who I am and what I'm about. I like myself for who I am and the direction I'm taking. Ask me to work with my hands, and I'll start better than most and learn faster than the rest. Show me people talking in a group, and I'll tell you what's really being said between the lines. I run until I can't breath and work out until my arms are numb. I'm teaching myself Linux and mathematics while learning how to protect some computers and hack others.
Welcome to Thunderdome.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Beefing up, LIKE A BOSS.
I've been in a daily pushup challenge since 12 October, so as of 10 April, I'll be doing 210 pushups daily until 10 May (I advance in groups of 30). Counting calories, counting miles to practice counting Benjamins when I have a desk in a c-suite and Congress in my pocket.

I'm a member of a running club: http://www.tacomarunners.com. We gather every Thursday at a local bar/pub/tavern, run 5k back to the start, and socialize afterwards.

Going to school, and interning, for computer hacking, to build to something with mathematics (cryptography? game and simulation programming? delta-one finance? all three?), if not an actual mathematics degree.

Finding a career where I can apply my Business Admin degree and/or future math/tech degree.

Making pottery when I have the time. I'm a pretty good potter and I can't make enough coffee cups, rice bowls, beer steins, and figurines to satisfy this clay-hungry mad house known as Tacoma.

Generally conquering this life.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-making things. No, really. I'm a very tactile learner, so arts & crafts is a pretty high category among my skills. The greatest among these is ceramics, which I make semi-professionally. Sadly, that does not really differentiate me from other single guys when I'm at the bars.

Reading "between the lines;" in writing, in speech, in life. Understanding things on several levels, not just the literal, and being able to speak to the relevant level.

-HIGH FIVES! I've won lifetime achievement awards and foreign heads of state as confidants thanks to my high five skills.

-ruining All The Plans in a board game. I may have missed a career in Army counterintelligence.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...if I'm wearing a kilt, then probably the kilt. Interesting fact: I almost got in a fight with a German national in London because of it.

If I'm sitting down, then my penmanship. Like, crazy-good. Regular, legible, and compact as hell.

I look like Colin Firth?!

Girl: "You have a really intense stare."
Me: "I'm thinking."
Girl: "Oh, well don't think too hard lol."
Me: "Lol, it's perfectly safe. You should try it some time."

I'm proportioned about the same as an American black bear/tug boat/brick/luchador.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Haggis!

Like your mom, my musical tastes are all over the place. At any given time, I'm mentally editing music videos with these tracks:

As far as films go, I like Wes Anderson's work. Be Kind Rewind, Tron: Legacy, Iron Man, Batman, Hellboy are what I'm drawn to, and Lawrence of Arabia is for special occasions.

When viewing The Lord of The Rings, it shall always be the extended edition, and it shall always be in one sitting.
So say we all.

Books? Neal Stephenson. Other favorite authors are Robert E. Howard (creator of Conan the Barbarian) and Dan Abnett. I guess I like Science Fiction/Fantasy above other genre fiction, but only if it really makes me think, or introduces me to a new idea.

The other occupants of my bookshelf are the Discourses on Livy and two different translations of The Prince by Machiavelli; some general books on Stoicism along with those books written by Seneca, Epictetus, Marsonius Rufius, and Marcus Aurelius; some on mathematics (including my college textbook), some on Aikido, a lot on Business Administration, and a lot on Computer Technology.

TV shoes? Size 14 Havana Joes.

TV shows? Brooklyn 99 when I need a laugh or a cry (by laughing until I cry). Black Sails, DaVinci's Demons, Game of Thrones, The Musketeers, yeah.

The answer to the "Star Wars vs. Star Trek" challenge is Battlestar Galactica. End of line.

My range of cartoons is pretty much Adventure Time, Regular Show, Steven Universe, and the Amazing World of Gumball.

Anime and manga? Maybe. Outlaw Star, Battle Angel Alita, Toppa Tengen Gurren Lagann, and Attack on Titan stand out with hot-blooded aggressive passion.

My favorite videogame is Linux, followed by Excel. Gears of War is a cinematic work of art. Planescape: Torment was beautiful. Skyrim was great, but it needed fewer flat areas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why, *why* does every OKC profile use Meyers-Briggs typing? It's only supposed to match people with job-tasks, and it isn't even accurate! Or consistent!
What the hell, people!?

The German language. Why?

Because when it's spoken by this paragon of chinliness, it's hard to not want to.

Awesome names for my future children:
Nemesis,

Morrigan,
Banshee, because you just don't f**k with someone named Banshee.

Massively complex story plots which, put together (because everything I write I put in the same narrative), would tax the best chart-making software.

How it's been a long road to follow, been there and gone tomorrow, without saying goodbye to yesterday. Are the memories I hold still valid? Or have the tears deluded them?

Maybe this time tomorrow, the rain will cease to follow, and the mists will fade into one more day. Still the road keeps on telling me to go on. Something is pulling me, I feel the gravity of it all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing things. Things you wouldn't habeeb.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I know the name of a vast elder being. To know it's name is to have the modicum of power over it necessary to maintain its slumber. I must think of this being's name constantly, for it's great and terrible name is too vast for a mortal mind to process, much less remember while saying it, and if I forget it's name, it will awake. :(

I have seven different journals that serve seven distinct purposes.

You like working out &/r. have an active lifestyle.
