Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
When I was a kid I didn't have a lot of friends so one summer my
parents sent me to space camp. It was pretty cool, but I didn't
make many friends there except for a robot named Jinx. We hung out
a bit and I told him my dream of going to space someday. Later,
during shuttle test burn, Jinx logged into the main computer and
created a situation that forced the shuttle to launch into space.
We ran into some issues because the shuttle wasn't stocked for a
mission but eventually we made it back home safe.
Okay, thats basically a lie because really thats just the plot
summary to the movie space camp. But if you found it interesting,
you should check it out.
I consider myself to be an atheist, but if you really pressed me
about it, I'd have to admit I'm technically an agnostic, which I
think most atheists are, but then I heard Stephen Colbert ask
"Isn't an agnostic just an atheist without balls?" So I'm an
I went to bible college because I wanted to understand why I
believed what I believed. I left two years later having lost my
faith (and my virginity) and spent the next few years coming to
terms with that. It was painful and frustrating, but going through
that process made me a better human being.
After that I spent the rest of my twenties owning crappy cars,
having fun, watching bad tv, and making admirable but ultimately
meaningless contributions to my 401k. I also spent a fair amount of
time dicking around on the internet, which actually ended up
working out pretty well as I was somehow able to parlay that into a
software developer job.

I dropped out of both high school and college so I honestly don't
know how I even function in this world. But I do work in a
technical role that requires a bachelors degree. I think I'm good

That I'm really easy to get along with. I come from a big family;
we moved around a lot when I was growing up. My brothers brought me
out of my shell and my sisters taught me how to laugh at myself.
I'm a middle child which means, I'm not sure what to be honest! How
does that work anyway, older siblings are supposed to be
responsible, and younger kids are the whacky tabbacy circus
Anyway, I'm a very friendly and like-able person. I make friends
fast; if I'm out on my lonesome I'll befriend another group no

I've always had a soft spot for the movie Tremors.
Books are great. I read, often. I don't particularly feel like
listing out all of my favorites - just trust that I'm well-read.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to shoehorn the word 'inability' into a sentence.
The etymology of words and idioms.
I also flirt with this idea that maybe I can find a plot of land in
the middle of nowhere, reject capitalism outright, and just go
totally off the grid. Solar power, rain collectors, weekly delivery
of "Heat and Serve" meals. Not for political or environmental
reasons, which at least would have an air of nobility; but because
of the challenge of it, and the pride of being independent and self
sufficient. And frankly, I think it sounds cool.
That, or on a sailboat. Sailboat or cabin. 'Cabin' sounds like it
would have spiders. Sailboat or yurt.

I do get a little sad when I go to one of those really big multi
day outdoor music festivals that's in a field with a ton of porta
potties and food venders; and I look down and see all the grass
being trampled into the earth by a herd of oblivious half drunk
political science majors (no offense). I realize it's insanely
trivial, but I can't help thinking 'what did the grass do to
