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.
