Hello. I'm Cody, a linguistic anthropologically inclined introvert,
author, adventurer, Indo-Europeanist, invalid, INTP, outdoorsman,
archer, and alliteration expert. Among many things. Whether or not
I am the Kwisatz Haderach is a matter of debate.
A few things more or less dominate my life: literature (reading and
writing), language (and the study thereof), gaming (video games and
tabletops), and mountaineering (mountain climbing, rock climbing,
I'm wired funny and what some might call weird or different, but I
don't care, I like it that way. They say I was raised by feral
cats. There may be a modicum of truth to that.
What I’m doing with my life
What I'm currently doing with my life is trying to answer this very
question. I have a multitude of goals, some easily obtained, others
ridiculously unrealistic, but I have no central plan.
I'm working on finding one, at least one for the next few years.
I've wandered aimlessly for too long and it's grown tiresome, so
I'm looking for something to do with my life.
The only sure goal I have at the moment is I would like to join the
SBSAR (Santa Barbara Search And Rescue) Team at some point in the
next few years and so I am in the process of getting both
physically and mentally fit to try out.
I’m really good at
I'd say my biggest skills are writing (both fiction and nonfiction)
and language. I currently speak anywhere from bits and pieces to
semi-fluency in, at last count, around twenty five languages and
can read about eleven alphabets.
I'm, what a professor once called, a "linguistic savant". I can
learn languages incredibly fast, take them apart, and understand
their inner workings.
In addition I'm an OK artist, rock climber, juggler, archer,
acrobat, swordsman, and web designer.
The first things people usually notice about me
More often than not, they don't. I'm highly forgettable and easily
overlooked even at the best of times. It's not a rare occurrence
that someone forgets I'm around. It's nothing I do consciously, I
suppose I'm just quiet and avoid drawing any attention to
When people do take notice of me the main things I've heard people
comment on are either the intensity of the blue in my eyes or how
long and/or soft my hair is.

The six things I could never do without
Not counting basic necessities (i.e. food, water, etc)...
2. Time alone
3. The natural world
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All manner of things. Whatever my current obsession is, though it
usually eventually gets tied back in to linguistics or anthropology
On a typical Friday night I am
On Fridays I usually end up reading or writing, perhaps playing a
game, maybe watching a movie. Safest bet is reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I got a lot of mental disorders that I'm working on getting a grip
on and not letting them control my life.
You should message me if
You can answer this question for yourself. Message me if you feel
like it, it's as simple as that.
