I strive. I try to do right by the world. I help people professionally. I also get paid to do my hobby. That is as awesome as it sounds. I'm developing some kind of chess habit. I like to read. I like to run around. It has been almost two years since my last game of tag.
What I’m doing with my life
Building a life. Helping people. It is going rather well.
I’m really good at
I've worn a lot of hats, so I'm fairly good at quite a few things
without being especially good at any one thing. What am I *not*
good at is intentionally succeeding. I always seem to find things I
didn't know I was supposed to be looking for.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told my eyes are very noticeable. They're bright blue. I
expect my bald head of Patrick Stewart-like awesomeness also stands
out. I'm told I'm fast on the draw with snarky remarks, but not in
a mean way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There aren't enough hours in a day to list my nonfiction reading. Nerd culture, cult films, prog rock (and 70 other genres of music), food I didn't cook, food I did cook.
I love my geek nerd stuff. Old Star Trek, nostalgia shows, Firefly.
Right now I'm working on my chess game with my friends and searching Santa Rosa for restaurants because I love noshable cuisine. I think I'm going to have to add the new Mad Max movie to the list. So fantastic.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can be a better mensch. Antiquity and what it tells us about today. How things have changed. How things have not changed. What I want my life to be. How to teach my classes more effectively. How to do my main job more effectively. What I want in my living room. Why OKC describes my personality as "more sloppy", when I don't think anyone, including current or former bosses, roommates, or ex-girlfriends would use that word to describe me. I am fairly obviously meticulous.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding from my week, possibly lesson planning for the class I teach on Saturdays. Seeing my friends. Sometimes I swing dance, but not so much lately.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know, guess you'll have to try me and find out.
You should message me if
If you want to.
Or if you want to watch Adventure Time with me. I mean, that isn't all I do, but I like to take twelve minutes a day and watch an episode of Finn and Jake.
