Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a programmer with an interest in data science.
I built my own website (http://joshuacol.es
) and use it to host my
blog. You can probably find me studying just about every day, even
though I'm not in school right now. My blog goes into detail about
the things I'm learning.
Did I mention I like anime? Especially the first season of Death
Note and Sword Art Online? No? Well now I have.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm programming computers for a living. Basically I make websites
and applications for people. I also study a lot of computer science
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Gaming and telling jokes that aren't funny.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan was amazing as was pretty
much every book by Brandon Sanderson. I've read the Harry Potter
books, the Lord of the Rings, and other similar popular works, but
they haven't held up as well to the passing of time. When it comes
to non-fiction I would say my favorite book is Surely Your Joking
Mr. Feynman. I found the combination of joy and genius to be pretty
Nothing is really standing out for me in the realm of movies. Maybe
Primer and Inception? They were both pretty good. I enjoyed the
first Harry Potter movie and didn't care for most of the rest. The
entire Bourne series held my interest. I actually went and read the
books too. I'll add more as I think of them.
I'm an oddball when it comes to music. I can listen to whatever
others have on, but rarely seek out music on my own. Its not that I
don't enjoy it. I have a little playlist that I listen to and
everything! So if you want to share strange music that is fine. In
this area I'm just a lot more curious then I am passionate.
My favorite shows are probably Game of Thrones, Sword Art Online,
and Death Note. Elfen Lied was great too. Poor Nana. Poor everyone.
I kept excepting Nyu/Lucy to blow up at everyone at any moment,
which made things so intense.
Food, well my favorites are tacos and pizza. I'm blessed with a
fantastic metabolism. I can eat the tasty food without much worry.
However, that isn't the full story. I also love quinoa. I was once
vegetarian and then vegan, but during that time I wasn't
responsible enough for supplying myself with the right food. It
made the diet choice extremely impractical. I'd be interested in
moving towards a mostly vegetarian diet for the health benefits,
but would need help in making the transition.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
God, Internet, Computer (including mouse, keyboard, and headset),
Portable Computer (tablet/mobile/laptop), and Competence/Skill
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether I can find someone who is into doing the same things as me.
Who I can play with and have fun with doing the things I
How to learn more about all the things that interest me. Should I
watch a lecture on Khan Academy next? Do I do the problem set from
the MIT Open Course Ware class I was working through? Do I crack
back open one of the overly hard and advanced textbooks that takes
months to slog through?
How should I best go about practicing so that I can reach my goals
when competing. Being good at the games I play is very important to
The trial of balancing faith with a scientific view of the world.
The many biases that go into thinking and their effect on my views.
Ways to deal with the counteraction of those biases. Instrumental
and epistemic rationality.
How most people don't seem to realize they are actually terrible at
the things they do in contrast to my own hyper-awareness of my
short-comings. Its both depressing and encouraging.
How much I love my cat and dog. They are so precious.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to hang out in Skype and play games (Chess, League of
Legends, World of Warcraft, etc). Perhaps moving on to more if
there is any sort of connection.
Also laser tag is one of my favorite things to go out and do so if
you're into that hit me up.
