Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am not the most complex person. I don't think people are
generally that complex. I am a cis-gendered bisexual white guy
living in one of the most affluent nations in one of the richest
periods of human history! Huzzah!
I'm pursuing a career in IT as sort of a placeholder. It yields
cash and I'm good at it. I want to write for a living for at least
a period of my life. I REALLY want to live abroad at some
I want to fall in love eventually. I want to have kids when I'm
older. I'm non-religious but respectful of others' views. The stars
fascinate me WAY more than the planet that I actually live on.
Science is cool. Help.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work, work, work! I'm trying - very hard - to balance my need for
financial income and my desire to be educated. I entered the menial
labor industry at fourteen and, rapidly approaching twenty-two, I'd
really like to escape its angry, stressful clutches.
I work night stock at a grocery store, though, specifically. During
my down time I write, plunk haphazardly on a guitar, and read.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm OK with a guitar: I play rhythm on acoustic and lead on an
electric, but my fretting hand is not quite as strong or as fast as
I'd like it to be. I taught myself, so I'm not well-versed in
I love to write! This goes hand-in-hand with reading, of course,
and it's one of my favorite ways to pass the time. I haven't
written anything that I plan to publish (yet), but I love to pen
~3,000 to ~5,000 words for a writing prompt that catches my eye.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The type of literature that I enjoy is kind of varied - I read
novels written in video-game universes, (auto)biographies, science
fiction, high fantasy, supernatural, etc. I'm fond of Neil Gaiman,
I grew up with and adore J.K. Rowling, and my favorite work about a
person's life is The Autobiography of Malcolm X, as dictated to
Alex Haley - even though it is a bit hagiographic.
Moves and TV shows are sort of the same, though I definitely lean
towards dramas that focus more on character and plot development
than unadulterated action. No Michael Bay, please, ever.
Music? Classical, old-school country, funk, classic rock, classic
pop, alternative/grunge rock, some lighter metal (early Metallica,
no death/speed metal), indie, folk.
I'm not terribly picky about what types of food I'll eat,
ethnically, but I'm kind of a picky eater when it comes to specific
foods. As with most things in life, however, I will absolutely eat
anything once. My favorite ethnic foods are usually Asian of some
sort. omg pho~
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The acoustic guitar that I've had since I was fourteen - it was the
first thing I bought with my own hard-earned cash!
My Jeep! She and I have been through a lot. Yes, she's a she. Is it
embarrassing to admit that I call her Sammy (short for
The super sweet mega-radical maxi-zundweebi condenser mic I bought
last year. I don't know why! I like to talk to other people over
the internet in CRYSTAL CLEAR TONES.
My COMFY, WARM, FASHIONABLE peacoat! Okay, I'm kind of reaching
here - I really like that jacket, but I wouldn't be inconsolable if
it died. I'm out of things. I'm sorry.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Foreign languages, beautiful places, fictional characters' lives.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking with friends, tabletop-ing with friends, or quietly
staring at my computer until I decide to go to bed.
