I promise I'm not as much of a tight ass as my writing style might indicate.
Moved to Minot from Sacramento, CA in late 2011. A lot of people have asked me why. Maybe you will too.
My brain is a lot smarter than I am, for which I'm grateful.
I see a great beauty in the universe, and it's machinations. I don't believe in a god per se, but when I look at our world, it removes all fear and doubt. I guess you could call that religion.
I like games; this includes Risk, Twilight Imperium, Scrabble, war (not the card game; the card game War is just horrible from a gamistic viewpoint), Halo, and foot races. I like Chopin, Bogart, and Antiques Roadshow. Hot baths with scented bubble mix and salts. Shootouts, fist fights, and violent video games. Explosions and loose women. A quiet picnic by the river. I'm an odd one, or so I've been told.
Every time I read the OkTrends blog, I remember why this site is awesome.
I want to explore, learn, and be challenged. I might be rock climbing one day, playing video games all weekend, going on an eight mile run, or being out and about with friends. Generally I like just about everyone, simple logic dictates that not everyone likes me.
~ I tend to think of human behavior in terms of adaptive chemical reactions.
~ I occasionally cry during touching movies.
~ I like the smells of air conditioning and vanilla.
~ I look at the big picture way more than can be good for you.
~ I am of the belief that war is truly beautiful. Ask me about this sometime. I probably don't mean what you think I do.
~ I like to think about the fact that the same molecules my ancestors were made of helped build plant matter, and in turn helped build animals, which in turn helped build me.
~ I like getting things for people. Making people happy makes me happy for some reason I have not yet determined (or do not wish to determine). I have no attraction to deliberately being used, however.
~ I have no fear of death. This is highly disadvantageous, I've found.
~ Sometimes when I draw, I make little explosion and "whoosh" noises.
~ Someone deriving pleasure from or admiring something I have created is one of my greatest satisfactions.
