My self-summary
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
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 with fudge.

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
American celebrities, computers, being nice. Spelling! Hugs!
The first things people usually notice about me
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.
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
Cell phone, computer, a private space, internet connection, Spotify. Tea.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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
At home, reading. Very few of my friends are party people, so I don't party that often.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a romantic at heart.
You should message me if
you feel like it. I'm very friendly.
