I don't really like talking about myself much. I find my preferred method of conversation is to listen to people talk about their problems and make snarkful comments. I like to think of myself as a bit of a therapist, only I make things worse.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently graduated college with a bachelor's in Computer Science. Now, I'm taking some time off to figure out what I want to do with my life, travel the world, that kind of thing. Haven't figured anything out yet.
I’m really good at
Programming, computers, using computers, and anything else you do to computers.
Also board games. People tend to assume I have an advantage because I usually own the games for some reason, but I'm pretty sure I'm just superior.
I'm also absolutely incredible at procrastinating.
I'll finish this section later.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am told that I am remarkably human in appearance.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy (and everything else Douglas Adams wrote), Godel Escher Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, The Selfish Gene, 1984, Brave New World, Slaughterhouse 5, The Stranger
I'm reading through the Dresden files right now. Pretty good series about a modern detective wizard.
Movies: Interstellar, All the Monty Python films, Pretty much all the marvel movies, Being John Malkovich, The Fifth element, Cabin in the woods, Fargo, Lock Stock and Two smoking barrels, and at this point I'm just scrolling through my Netflix history and seeing what I rated 5 stars.
I watch a lot of movies, it's hard to pick favorites.
Shows: Breaking Bad, The Wire, Community, 30 Rock, House of Cards, Daredevil, Game of Thrones, The Simpsons, and probably some other ones I can't think of.
Music: The Complete History of the Soviet Union Arranged to the Melody of Tetris
Games: XCOM: Enemy unknown, World of Warcraft, Team Fortress 2, Binding of Isaac, Crusader Kings 2, Dota 2, Dark souls. I play a lot of games.
Food: Steak, Lobster, and Chick-fil-a sandwiches.
The six things I could never do without
Oxygen, humor, humors, Internet, information, language
I've tried to quit the first one, but the withdrawal symptoms are terrible.
And I hate when my black bile gets all out of whack and I get all melancholy. It's a terrible affliction.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I should do with my life. What life even is. Who I even am. How can someone as incompetent as me be trusted to come up with an answer? What am I going to eat tonight? Will it be the same thing as last night? I'm not hungry now, but will I be hungry in an hour? How am I going to handle that?
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I'm willing to admit it, is it private? What does it mean for something to be "most private"? How do you measure the amount of privateness a statement has? Is there a scale? What are the units? Privs? Privys? Privys sounds pretty good.
I admit that I am not aware of the metric unit of privacy.
You should message me if

Or if you like hats. Hats are nice.
