I am a doer who values downtime. That means I find a lot of satisfaction in everything form work to cooking to fixing my car, but I tend to relax with activities that have no long-term benefit whatsoever. Assembling pieces into solutions is a lot of fun for me, whether it's sections of code coming together to make a program or parts and tools fixing my bike. Then I mess around on Reddit.
... but time spent with a good friend (or a new friend!) is always the highlight of my day, and I spend a lot of my free time finding new music, movies, and books. Human connection and art give life meaning. Hence my profile on this site!
I try, and often fail, to balance appreciation for what I have and ambition to improve myself, which is the best method I have of improving the world. I work hard to improve my life, but I try to keep in mind that eating food and sleeping indoors means I have better fortune than many, many people.
I am completely obsessed with the Alot. I have strong minimalist tendencies. I once cold-called a man and sold him a roof.
