Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am fundamentally a life-lover and a truth-seeker
. I love thinking
about all kinds
of things all the time.
My main goal is to live forever, because life is just way too
enjoyable. I attempt to be systematically rational, because
rationality is that which gets you what you want, whether that be
life, love, fuzzy kittens, or world domination.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at discerning truth. This typically expresses
itself in having philosophical or scientific discussions that feel

Also I'm really good at typing, drinking milk, solving Rubik's
cubes, and getting really excited about dorky things.

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality (HPMoR
) resonates with me deeply. Besides
that, I've sort of forgotten that fiction exists. Wikipedia,
textbooks and research papers are usually my reading of choice. I
want movies to have deep resounding themes. I could watch The West Wing

currently on a Simon & Garfunkel
kick. Some other artists I like are MC Frontalot
, Daft Punk, Chopin,
Billy Joel, Justice, The Sounds, Ratata, AC/DC and Hans Zimmer. And

makes me swoon a little bit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

grapes, frustrating bits of the english language, girls,
probability, money, transhumanism

Etymology, writing perfect code, what has been earned, why I think
things are beautiful, the deep nature of computation, heros of the
past, gender issues . . .
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

I'm trying to learn swing dancing, so I do that on Wednesday

I'll pretty much tell you anything, as long as you're sincerely
interested and engaged.
I'm an MIT student wannabe and read their admissions blog
to feed my lust.
