I'm a mostly optimistic idealistic gender egalitarian socialist. I also have feelings and like stuff. I care about strangers, but not about most of what they care about. I've got mild social anxiety. Capitalism is a drag. I don't enjoy marketing myself to employers or to prospective friends. I don't care for political correctness, but I'm not tactless. Who am I kidding with this shit, I'm a cynical misanthrope and I want you all to die.
I'm hard to offend and pretty low maintenance. I have an easy time switching between being serious and funny.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to sleep at night instead of all day. Exercising regularly.
edit: I fucked my sleeping schedule up again
I’m really good at
Saying stupid things to make people laugh?
Playing games well without taking them too seriously.
Convincing myself I'm not taking these games way too seriously.
Guitar things maybe.
The first things people usually notice about me
That you're taller than I am, and that I'm shorter than you are, and that you take up more space vertically than I do, and that I'm not very tall. Especially that last part.

The six things I could never do without
You visiting my profile. Wait, no, where are you going?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about people and what they could have done differently in any given situation to create a better outcome for them and whoever else fits into the equation. In fact, I think that may be the most important thing to think about in general as it's basically the answer to humans not blowing each other up and, you know, being in healthy relationships together.
A lot of people's loneliness would be solved if they stopped having unreasonable and counter productive expectations for one another.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at home. Usually either reading, talking to friends, playing some game, watching some movie/show, or playing guitar. Or having an existential crisis.
Playing D&D. (if my friends would stop being so damn busy)
You should message me if
You message people.
You're not afraid of being wrong about things.
You take proper care in communicating well and with the patience it sometimes requires.
You hate capitalism.
You hate me. Let's work this out.
