Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
To summerize myself? Let's see...
-I have a habit of dancing like nobody's watching, even though it
would be best if nobody did.
-I'm smarter than the average bear, despite what you may think or
what I will (or won't) say. -I'm a liberal idealist grounded by
midwestern conservative roots (and yes, I realize that might be
contradictory to some, but it's a delicate balance that is
constantly challenged and reevaluated), the end result being a
left-leaning moderate that always seeks compromise.
-I've been called a pompous elitist and if it is true, then I'm
failing at my responsibility of being one of the elite.
-I do have my faults, and I will not be making many people's hot
list this year.
-However, I am told by a few that on the whole I'm not terrible to
look at and I'm overall a decent person. You are welcome to
discover for yourself.
-For those that care about Meyers-Briggs: INFP, with moments where
I swing to INTP.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I hit a wall in terms of personal growth in Southwest Missouri.
Spent a year in San Diego, got my fill of the greener grass, and
decided to come back to Springfield.
In terms of career, I love kids, and most of my professional
experience has been working with children that were victims of
abuse/neglect. I have no children of my own and no immediate desire
to start having them, but I may want to someday (if you have kids,
please don't read this as a dealbreaker, just realize I have some
goals before I commit to being any kind of long-term parental
figure). My current job has me utilizing a skill set that sets me
up to be some kind of Superdad (at least that's what the women I
work with say)
I spend my days working (A lot. Boo on you salaried job!), playing

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Since I am having trouble filling this out for right now, I'm going
to go with being modest. Or I could really not be really good at
anything, but be decent at about everything.
A friend told me at my Goodbye Missouri party that if I had a
superpower it would be making everyone feel welcome and connected.
I am not sure exactly what he meant by that, but I choose to take
it as a compliment.

On my off-time I'm hanging out with the guys/gals, probably doing
something others would consider nerdy. Usually I work Friday nights
and just want to relax at home unless the guys browbeat me into
going out for a beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I am slightly internet famous for playing Dungeons and Dragons. Not
in an embarrassing way like you see on youtube, but I have earned a
small fan-club for it.
I also have an extreme, (nigh irrational) dislike of having my
photo taken, unless I've been drinking, which is why most of my
photos make me appear to be an alcoholic.
In all honesty, I have a handful of secrets that I don't disclose
except to the closest friends. Otherwise I am an open book.
