My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My profile is constantly being revised. People grow!

What to say about myself? I'm a huge nerd of every stripe (no really, if it's nerdy I'm totally down), not a zombie, and totally awesome. Also INTP.

Courtesy note: If you're a guy, skip to the second-to-last line in this profile. Might save you some time and trouble.

I used to be a hardware tester at Microsoft (not as glamorous as it sounds) but now I'm studying game design at Bellevue College until I transfer to DigiPen. I should also probably mention that I'm a licensed Massage Therapist (well, licensed in California) and that I paid entirely too much money to learn to do it.

Man, this sounds like a bad job application. But I mean, really. What more could you possibly want to know?! I rock; let's be friends!

I'm a switch. If you don't know what that means, ignore it.

I'm not a vegan; I love meat (Ding!) However, I have no problems with vegans or the vegan lifestyle (vegan food is delicious) so as long as you respect me and my choice, I'll respect you and yours. Just promise not to use your vegan powers against me. Please? Don't make me cream your coffee (My legal team has advised me to include this message as a disclaimer, informing anyone who does not get the reference that I would never put cream in a vegan's coffee. Ever. Unless you take it as some sort of sexual term then, hey, whatever blows your hair back I guess. If you have seen or read Scott Pilgrim, you may safely ignore this message.)

I have strong political views. I'm not a left-wing "nutjob" but I heavily lean towards progressivism. I believe in many culture-positive and eco-friendly causes (even if I'm not nearly as active as I'd like.) But if I try to talk about any of that, this profile will end up TWICE as long! That said, I would LOVE to have what I'm sure would be an absolutely facinating discussion on such topics with you. No, I don't hate republicans or conservatives (there's a difference). I've even had successful relationships with them! What I hate are hypocrites and people who force their own ideology onto others.

P.S. I am looking for a D&D group (or other gaming group.) I don't care what edition.

I can't believe OKC removed the three words that describe you! I am intelligent, eccentric, and eclectic.

P.P.S. I wanted to go for the hat trick of 3 "e" words (fuck YES alliterating!! So cool.), so I looked up synonyms for intelligent on thesaurus.com. "Easy" "Endowed" and "Equipped" were all listed, but I assumed they'd be universally misinterpreted!

P.P.P.S. EMPATHIC! Done!

And finally, to clarify, yes I am an otaku. Yes, I know what this word means. No, I am not a weeaboo. No I don't like things just because they're asian, and no I don't want to be japanese. People tend to make a lot of assumptions about this stuff.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being something other than dead.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
English, video games, empathy, giving it to you straight. Slicing, dicing, I also make julienne fries! (No, for serious, I'm a pretty good cook.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair, my eyes, and my charm and wit! (or occasionally lack thereof)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Is it awesome? Yeah, that.

My tastes are ridiculously eclectic, and I have the unnerving ability to see something good in just about anything, as well as a desire for knowledge and meaningful dialog. If I haven't seen it, read it, or heard it, I'm probably interested.

Ugh you want examples, don't you? Ok fine, but understand that this is far from comprehensive by any parameter. This is more like the greatest hits version; just because your favourite song isn't here doesn't mean it's not on the album.

I like food that is delicious. Recently I've discovered indian food and it's great! I'm eager to have more. I love food and am always open to trying new things, as long as there are no mushrooms (gross) or strawberries (allergic). Sorry, strawberry fans!

My favourite bands include (but are not limited to): SURFACE (a japanese band that's sorta like a cross between jazz, rock, and pop), Hitomi Yaida, and the Protomen. (If you're a Protomen (or SURFACE) fan, please let me know!) I have a Hatsune Miku tattoo; not just because I'm a fan, but because she's just that important to the music industry and our collective human culture at large. She basically single-handedly revolutionized music production and distribution, and all without destroying some poor teenager's life. If you're a Miku fan, we should definitely be friends.

I also enjoy a lot of more mainstream non-Japanese music. Really, I like everything. If you say you only like one or two genres of music, then you don't really like music; you like an image, feeling, or culture. Which is totally OK! But not the same as liking music. I like MUSIC. If it has a good melody (looking at you dubstep), doesn't sound like random noise (grindcore/screamo), and isn't about complete bullshit (crunk), I probably enjoy at least a few entries in the genre (yes, even country). Case in point, I can think of at least one song in each of the aforementioned genres that I like. That said, my favourite genres typically include: Jazz (everything from quartet and big band down to smooth jazz/Kenny G type stuff), uptempo modern rock/punk (think Paramore), epic/fantasy metal (Blind Guardian's "Nightfall in Middle-Earth will rock your fucking face off), and rap/hip hop with more lyrical/musical quality (Jay-Z, select Kanye/Eminem track, etc). Lorde and Lady Gaga, while really freaking weird, both have a special place in my heart.

I play a lot of video games! If you're one of those intolerant, arrogant people who say that video games are stupid or for children without ever having really tried one since the days of Pac Man or Super Mario Brothers, and lack the open-mindedness to do so, then you need not apply. If you then turn around and switch your brain off in front of TV or movies which offer no creative expression or input input, kindly remove yourself from the gene pool.

If on, the other hand, you're the awesome sort of person who doesn't judge people because they happen to have a passion for something you're not interested in and is open to trying new things just to see, then you should probably message me!

My favourite games include the Shin Megami Tensei franchise (especially Persona 3 and 4.) I also like a lot of other RPGs, but really I'll play anything. Recently playing Valkyria Chronicles and Ni no Kuni!!

TV show like Buffy and Sherlock are obvious choices. Don't watch too much live action, though. Really, I'm an otaku before anything else, which is something this profile is particularly bad at expressing. It's basically The Best. There's nothing quite as nice as snuggling up with someone and watching a whole mess 'o annie may. I also like TV and web cartoons like Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors, and Bee and Puppycat. The Mighty Bee is also fantastic, but only like four people in the universe have ever heard of it, which is unfortunate.

I like all sorts of movies, but don't watch a ton of them. My all time favourite movie is Princess Mononoke. By far. Like, really. I'm serious. If you've never seen it, tell me. If I have to I'll drop everything and come to you and we'll watch it together. I really like Star Wars, and the Marvel cinematic universe (my favourites are Iron Man 1, Avengers, and Winter Soldier).

Books are fantastic! I'm primarily into fantasy, but I'll read other stuff, too. I like Harry Potter and Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings. I also like urban fantasy stuff (there's a special place in my heart for Kim Harrison novels). Additionally, I enjoy Jane Austin, and (unrelated) am currently reading Anne of Green Gables.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Rather than try to think of six things that somehow magically encapsulate my being OR offer some cheesy silly cop out answers like air and water, I've decided to leave this section thought-provokingly blank. Not that I have anything against the first two methods, they're just not me.

(.....ok that's a lie the second one is TOTALLY me. But everyone does it so I, personally, feel it's a little old now. Even if it does tell me something about the people who do it.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
THE MYSTERIIIIIES OF THE UUUUUUUUUNIVERRRRRRSE

Also: How to make this profile express myself more thoroughly. It's very good at expressing my interests and hobbies, which are important but are not the extent of who I am. How does one express creativity, verbosity, a love of thinking and discussing, with just a liiiiittle bit of crazy while still putting across the practical information? WITHOUT turning this into a ten page dissertation? I mean, I guess it's too late for that last part. Hmm...

Also also: Why does OKC keep putting <60% match ratings in my "You might like" section?

Also also also: When I send someone a message, and then they look at my profile, and then they don't respond, I always wonder what it is about me that turned them off. Is it too long? Do I talk too much? Do they just hate cool people? I guess I'll never know.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Practicing being alive. You never know when that shit might come in handy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm actually way weirder than this profile makes me sound. And more thoughtful.

Unrelated: If I could somehow turn into a cute girl, but wouldn't ever be able to revert, I'd do it in a heartbeat and I'd never look back.

The first time I ever saw Laputa: Castle in the Sky was a few years ago at SIFF. Let me reiterate; I managed to make my first experience with this movie be in Japanese, subtitled, in an actual movie theater, as an adult. And it was fantastic. This is about as close as I've ever come to a religious experience. That might sound silly and this might not sound like a very private thing to admit, but perhaps someday, if you're lucky, you'll understand how very personal of an experience it was for me.

I still haven't seen it a second time. I'm not sure why.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You actually read all of this.
~OR~
You can string two or more words together in a grammatically sound manner that contain more than three letters. Each.

No, seriously, don't be shy. If you're not an idiot and think you'd like to talk or hang out or anything else, send me a message!

Addendum: I am bisexual but I'm not interested in a 1x1 relationship with another man right now. Sorry!

So say we all.
