Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is the part where I use 'I' a lot.
I am an archeologist, amateur aerialist, reader, writer,
I look and live much younger than my biological age. I am very
responsible, but also goofy, shy, awkward (favorite word ever,) and
have a healthy inner child. I have a freakishly fast metabolism
that requires me to eat large amounts of fried food and ice cream
just to maintain my weight. I eat like a five year old (if said
five year old had extremely irresponsible parents.)
When I win the lottery, I am going to hire Tim Burton to design a
house with crooked architecture, secret passageways, and hallways
that go nowhere.
I don't care much about money, but apparently other people do, so
I'll just say that I earn more than I need, have no debt, and all
of my vices are inexpensive, except for the occasional book buying
Update: Just bought my first home! Walking distance to my office
and to my favorite music venues downtown. I am pleased.
Music is my serotonin reuptake inhibitor.
Descriptors: Optimistic. Introverted. Stoic. Whimsically Humored.
Meticulous. Awkward. Autoluminescent.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a windless day, how many helium balloons would I need to attach
to my body to enable me to jump 50 feet into the air, and then
float safely to the ground.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do not eat vegetables, condiments or sauces. These are borderline
phobias for me. I wont hold it against you if you eat them.
When I was about eight years old a teacher told my class that, on
average, a human being would take 13 million breaths before dying.
Of course to my eight year old mind this meant that I had better
start breathing slower, or better yet, hold my breath as long as I
could, as often as I could. This greatly distressed my parents
because they, more than once, found me passed out from holding my
breath too long. I eventually wised up, but I still secretly enjoy
holding my breath in hope of extended life.
I used to think that a roadrunner was my power animal/spirit guide,
but now I am fairly certain that it is Iggy Pop.
