Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a puzzlier, a travelaire, an explorist, a boostylitizer, and a
novelier. I have been told that I've led an interesting life, but I
think it's in sort of a Jerry Springer special guest (Darryl's
super-secret transvestite lover) kind of way.
EDIT: Removing any mention of politics.
I'm starting to think that I'm pathologically trusting... For
instance, I'm bearing my soul to the internet on a dating site. So
far it's been pretty fun, so I think I'm going to stick with it
(being pathologically trusting).
EDIT: Less convoluted.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a software engineer at a financial reporting and analysis firm.
I'm senior to some, junior to some. Lately, it's become mostly
about the paycheck, which is kind of sad for me.
I would like to do post graduate work, but it's not really in the
budget. Plus I have so much debt; mostly from the first round of
I play all different kinds of music (guitar and pipa, mostly) and I
was once a fairly inspired visual artist, mostly working in ink and
charcoal. I would like to be inspired again... I am not sure if the
scorched-earth class war battlefield called Connecticut is really
the place to find inspiration, but I suppose inspiration ultimately
comes from within.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at thinking about stuff. Especially stuff that has
to do with predicting the behavior of abstract systems. I think
this is largely due to the line of work that I'm in.
I am also good with my hands. I've been told I'm an adroit guitar
player, although I've never really felt compelled to be a performer
and no one ever uses the word 'adroit.' I mostly just enjoy it for
its own sake, and don't have much interest in being a "rock star",
although at some point in my teens I did. I also play pipa (a
4-string Chinese lute), and I'm an excellent typist, mostly because
I type all day at work.
I'm pretty good at one on one strategy games. I'm a decent Go
player (3k-6k on KGS-don't worry if you have no idea what I'm
talking about, it's really cool. Trust me). I also lived with a
really great chess player for a couple years in 2007-08 or so, and
played lots of games with him, so some of his greatness rubbed off
on me I'm sure. My chess skillz are probably a little faded by now,
because I hardly play that much anymore (for lack of IRL
opponents-I don't like to play chess on computers for some reason.
Except BattleChess. That shit is classic!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm good humored and genuine. Also, I'm so masculine that I come
across as feminine (:P). Also I'm covered with hair, so I guess
just know that. All except the top of my head... That's actually
probably really the first thing that people notice about me, which
is kinda sad and kinda funny.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sleep, Love, The Intertubes, Friends, Guitar, My Hands
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All the songs that I've been meaning to learn, and the adventures
that I lack the time to have.
Also, witty things that I should've said hours ago.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
sobbing into my pillow after realizing that my 'On a Typical Friday
Night' section contains nothing but lies fabricated solely to make
me seem interesting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to watch every episode of "My So-called Life." Actually, I
think I'd probably watch it again. Grippingly Groundbreakingly,
Unabashedly, Rivetingly profound teen drama I must say.
Also, this might be better under the "utterly idiotic things that
you really shouldn't say but might if you have no ability to filter
your thoughts whatsoever" section, but I don't see that so I'll put
it here: I've had sex before and I liked it a lot (many of the
times). So... I may want to do it again... If you find that
offensive or weird, then... umm, we can do other stuff together. Or

after lunch as well. We can talk about this. I am flexible on the

close these parentheses! Just kidding.) should extend into
