Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I read a lot, mostly sci-fi and non-fiction. I like any books that
have ideas in them that I've never had to consider before.
A standard day for me after work is to go to a café and get some
dinner and some reading done. When I get home I might unwind with
some TV, or a little bit of gaming, even though I don't play as
much now as I used to.
Sometimes I manage to get up early and do something before work.
Normally I don't though. I really want to be a morning person, but
I fear that I am not.
Taking long walks is nice, when the weather gods are willing,
Especially at night, because of the silence. I like walking around
places I've never been.
I'm not very fond of travel. Mostly everyone here seems to love it,
but I'm pretty happy where I am, and I don't care for the hassle of
going across the world.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Software engineer, and I like to expand my interests. Trying to
make the best crème brûlée possible. So far the best I've made is
I started taking a couple of these online classes that some US
universities started as an experiment. It's fantastic, because I
learn stuff I otherwise wouldn't, and it's like being a student
again, except without all the pressure.
I started going to the Fotografiska museum here in Stockholm,
because it's fantastic. It sort of sparked an appreciation for
photography in me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
American celebrities, computers, being nice. Spelling! Hugs! I'm
book smart, not so street smart.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I haven't got a clue. What did you first notice about me?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Favourite books are Neuromancer, by William Gibson, and
Cryptonomicon, by Neal Stephenson. Currently I'm reading the
winners of the Hugo Award for best novel, starting with the most
recent and going back.
I'm very fond of "The Matrix".
I've watched too much TV in the past, so I'm trying to cut down,
but I adore Community, Buffy the Vampire slayer, Firefly and
Battlestar Galactica. Archer is hilarious and quite possibly the
most offensive show I've ever seen. I like BBCs Sherlock.
The book Quiet, by Susan Cain, deserves special mention. It's about
introverted people, why and how they are introverted, and what the
effects are. I've never had a book explain so much about myself
before. It gave me words to describe parts of my personality, and
that made it much easier to understand. For instance, after parties
I'm exhausted, and she used the word "overstimulated" to describe
it, which made me understand my own experiences much better.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Cell phone, computer, a private space, internet connection,
Spotify. Tea also apparently (caffeine to be more precise), because
I tried to quit a while ago and I got pretty severe withdrawal
symptoms. Who knew?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever my interests are at the moment, and why I have such a
strong inner monologue. I daydream all the time. Sometimes about
everyday things and sometimes about how I'm taking over the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home, reading. Very few of my friends are party people, so I
don't party that often.
