Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"My name is Zane. I live in a box. The box is round. I sleep in the
corner, by the window, and my favorite color is clear."
My older sister gave me this saying at a young age. I have since
used it as a mantra for everyday life.
I like to live; it's a pretty cool deal. I'm laid back on some
things, incredibly strict on some things, and in the middle on a
lot of things. (Sometimes, I'm really ambiguous about stuff.)
I like to sing. I like to act (a more elegant form of lying). I
like to eat. I like to spend time in front of a screen that flashes
a bunch of pretty colors in front of my face. I wish I were good at
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a full time student, part time robot at Ohio Northern
University, currently working on my BA in Theatre and BS in Being a
Robot. [I'm a robot, by the way. (I like using parentheses.)
(Brackets are cool, too.)]
As far as what happens after college, when I step into the "real
world"... The current plan is to move to Chicago once I get enough
money to pay for an apartment, and immediately audition for every
repertory company in the city. In my spare time I'd do small
voiceover gigs until I became powerful enough to defeat both H. Jon
Benjamin and Troy Baket and absorb their essence. Even if it
doesn't work out like that, hopefully something good will happen;
I've seemed to have pretty good luck so far.
I'm currently living in my hometown of Churubusco, IN, a.k.a Turtle
Town, USA. Google it if you don't believe me. This fall I'll be
spending a semester at the University of Salford in Manchester, UK.
So if you Manchesterfolk see me poking around your profile, don't
worry; I'm just pre-stalking.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at drawing. Whenever I draw something, I show it to people
in hopes that they'll praise me. I do this because as a kid, my
drawings were never good enough to be put on the fridge.
I'm supposedly good at singing, and I'm still working on convincing
myself of that, because whenever I try to listen to my own voice I
swear to God some gremlin goes in with an audio editor and beats
the ever-living crap out of it. But I like to sing (I mentioned
that already), so that's why I've decided to do it for a
I'm also supposedly good at acting. Whether that's true or not has
yet to be determined, and requires more testing in less volatile
I'm not good at dancing. This is inconvenient.
I'm good at writing. I think. People seem to like it. I seem to
like it. I am people. (I am definitely not a robot.)
I'm good at playing Resident Evil, which has helped me make
friends. In a way, you could say that's the most important thing of
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People first notice that I look pissed off all the time. This has
depraved me from much social contact throughout my life. Those who
are lucky enough to be around me when I don't look pissed off are
the ONES WHO ARE STILL ALIVE.
No, they're the ones who happen to see me when I'm not inside my
head. Then they notice that I have a deep voice that sounds
uber-sexy and makes all of the girls wet. Then I leave, because I'm
awkward when I'm first meeting someone and I don't like making

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
...now that my Smart-Ass Six are out of the way:
2) Interactive entertainment
4) People (in measured doses)
5) My mom's potato salad
6) A coat, because the Midwest is cold.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Creative projects I'd like to accomplish. Approximately 99% of
these projects never come to fruition. If I could get just 5% of
them out in the world, I'd either be famous or arrested by now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends, watching them play D&D while failing
to get any homework done; or wasting time on the Internet, in my
warm, safe bedroom...
Or I'm at rehearsal. That happens a lot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am currently on anti-depressants, but I've never been formally
diagnosed with depression. My university counselor simply offered
them as a possibility because my "standard of living isn't where
I'd like it to be". I'm still not entirely sure what that means.
I'm now determined to not be a depressing asshat and I'm taking
steps to become a generally better person to myself and to others.
So bear with me.
