Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A somewhat quirky individual with an idealistic mind and heart,
complete with a rather creative flair. I take to my activities with
an honest, amateur's humor, but nonetheless try rather seriously to
succeed at the same time.
Originally from out East, New Jersey to be precise, I was formerly
very much into reenacting the Revolutionary War (and in having
moved to Northfield, I may return to such arts once more...Jesse
James and all) and retain interests in creative writing, the
theoretical crafting and playing of games (most of all board games
and Role Playing Games), enjoying the company of animals, and
learning about mythology and history, trying to reconcile all of
these rather major interests with secondary interests, such as
fencing, skiing, theatregoing, electronic games, acting, and voice.
I love to talk with people and learn from them, also hoping they,
in turn, can learn from me. If such advice and knowledge is
desired, of course.
I am sometimes a bit indecisive, and occasionally sound formal and
genteel, but other times can bounce off the walls with glee and
excitement. All told, I'm a well intentioned sort. Just a bit shy,
donchaknow. And a tad of a romantic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In short, I am about two months in to owning a Science
Fiction/Fantasy/Gaming bookstore. I run it from the afternoon to
late hours, and spend the rest of my time writing and designing
historical fiction and fantasy novels, as well as board
Given any additional time, I might hang out at the nearby Carleton
College (my alma mater) to audit classes with the professors I so
loved, as well as to enjoy their anime club and folk singing club.
I might also spend that time to sleep. Maybe.
I’m really good at

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've maybe driven a motor vehicle all of fifteen times in the past
ten years since I received a license, the product of there being
much mass transportation back in Jersey. As such am a little afraid
to be behind the wheel at any time. I am, however, working to
develop a means of conquering these fears.
