My name is Mike.
I'm the type of guy who never did karaoke until last week, but by
the end of the night had gotten my friends to sing along with "Call
me maybe" and "insatiable"
What I’m doing with my life
I've decided that this year is about self-education, reading the
classics (I have resolved to read 20 this year, all recommendations
welcome!), and exercise (Bodyweight, kettlebell, qigong, and
"zadyarka"). I also want to acquire three or more new skills (I

housework. Planning for the upcoming post-apocalyptic nightmare
world, you know- that kind of thing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know that there must be an FBI file on me somewhere (everyone has
one, right?) and I'm a little scared to even try to check it out. I
wouldn't be surprised to find a photo of myself at the back of a
May Day parade in Siberia with all the black and red flag waving
anarchists - a story I can tell you sometime.
