Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an adult kid: I hold a job, pay my taxes take care of my fiscal
obligations, put a roof over my head (and my cat's) and food in my
belly. After that, all bets are off- I will independantly go in
search of magic in the world, stare in quiet awe at fireworks, or
indulge in some RPG gaming with friends (tabletop or LARP). The
world is a harsh, cruel place that makes each of us more jaded, so
I've determined to hold on to as much of what makes me young as I
can, while I still have that in my heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to Atlanta fall 2012 for a guy and a job; one of the two
worked out! I love my job. I'd call it playing Sherlock Holmes in
log files and stack dumps...and then one day I realized I'm not
nearly that rockstar. I'm just playing Blue's Clues in log files.
But I love every day of it, and I've got a good team to do it with,
where it is always making me scared to death because I don't know
SOMETHING but that's a chance to push a boundary and learn some
more. The rest of my life is a bit of a blank slate- I'm looking
forward to resuming school in the next six months or a year, as
soon as I decide which program to finally settle on. I participate
in a networked national hobby group of organized live action game
events, assisting with running a modern horror game in Atlanta, and
periodically driving out to other games within reasonable distance.
And overall, I'm trying to do some new things, learn some new
things... like I'm trying to learn to knit. It's not going well,
but I haven't given up the effort yet....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at some really awesome positive things, and some really
negative things. Some of the negative things I'm really good at are
putting my foot in my mouth by saying too much, or being anxious
when I shouldn't. I'm extremely passionate about helping others,
and have a tendency to get in and lead on such things. I'm good at
just going out and doing what I want to do, regardless of what
preconceptions it may provoke in others. I'm good at technology,
some video games, and having weird hobbies.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lost Girl, Hemlock Grove, and Game of Thrones are my current TV
choices- but I truely don't watch a lot. I LOVE Jurassic Park and
Repo! The Genetic Opera (best when done in shadowcast). I love a
great steak (rare), Disturbed (the band, Device is also
acceptable), and Enigma (blast from the 90s!).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My family. They love me, I love them. I have a handful of
blood-relations and a few who are family in everything but blood.
They are all equally and unequivocably family to me.
2) My cat. I love my little furry kid, and when I adopted him, I
made a commitment to him to never be without him for as long as he
is in my care. Even when I want to turn him into mittens.
3) My computer, in the context of could not do without it for a
long period of time. It's a source of communication to many of my
friends who are dear to me, who live all over the world.
4) My friends who have put up with me for so long, who brighten my
life and my world and give me the blessing of their friendship, and
whom allow me to return the same to them.
5) The internet. It allows all of the above to interact even in the
worst situation. (Exception: the cat, unless he learns how to use
the computer. In which case, something is very, very wrong.)
...I've just run out of things I couldn't live without. There are
few things in my life that I could do without. The important ones
are those whom I love. I can do without physical things as
required, but with friends and family and those I love and the
ability to reach out to them. I can deal with boredom with a
friend, a broken heart with a family member, and the computer and
the internet ensure that these are always available to me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's either going to be that I have been in a Repo! The Genetic
Opera shadowcast as one of Rotti Largo's Henchmen, or that I've
actually gone to see Jurassic Park in theatres by myself one
afternoon- and when it turned out I was the only one in the theatre
that tuesday afternoon, I had a blast of a time singing,
cat-calling Nedry, reciting lines, and in general being a gigantic
