And after I’ve sat and thought a while, I raise up my head and say to my friend (or type on my computer or scribble in a notebook), “Isn’t it marvelous, this world of ours – and all the other worlds we create in our minds? And incidentally, what do you think of the theory of the absence of the stuff of nothingness, or the relationship between truth and being, and is the universe more chaotic or organized and can it be one and not the other?”
Pleasant though these things are, one cannot live on abstract thought alone. So I cook and I clean and I edit (very well, thank you) and I write and I go to church. And when I can, I dance.
I’m happy to laugh and listen to music and chat and go places and write and play video games and walk.
A few facts:
-- I have a Master of Theology from the University of St Andrews (Scotland).
-- I love science fiction and fantasy.
-- I love dancing.
-- I love swimming. I used to swim competitively.
-- My Myers-Briggs personality type is INTJ. That’s the mastermind personality type. :) Introverted, abstract-thinker (creative), thinking-based-actions, organized. I get along best with E/INFPs, though I find people who are extremely extroverted overwhelming, even when I like them.
-- I’m honest. Sometimes bluntly so. I seldom mean it to be rude, though; I can just be a bit oblivious. But I do have a super-polite-in-formal-situations mode.
-- I tend to be on time.
-- I’m fairly tidy.
-- I’m introverted and can be shy in large groups. I’m not shy one-on-one or in small groups or with people's parents.
-- I’m Christian and won’t date anyone who isn’t.
-- I'm a freelance editor. Know that in any message you send me, I will notice every single typo, usage error, grammatical error, etc. I can't help it. I won't think less of you for a typo or two (if you afford me the same courtesy; I don't always proofread things), but I will notice. You have been warned.
