Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm passionate, open-minded, honest, sincere, ethical, caring,
affectionate, and fun. I love life. I want to explore the world,
and discover the beauty and joy in all things and peoples. I love
it when I find ways that I've closed my heart and mind, because it
gives me something new to explore. I've been known to purposely do
things I fear or even hate, just so I can understand my own mind
I listed atheism as my religion, but it's not actually a religion.
It says nothing about what I believe, just what I disbelieve. My
religion is kindness. That is the only element of any religion I
feel is worth salvaging. What an amazing world this would be if
everyone dropped their beliefs and just focused on making life
better for each other.
I'm a political moderate. I strive to be free of all ideology. I'm
more interested in connecting with those of different beliefs. I
enjoy the occasional debate, as long as all involved are calm and
respectful of one another. That rarely happens, so I try to avoid
debates and focus instead on our shared humanity. I also try to
avoid people with strong opinions that are hateful of those who
disagree with them.
I love music. I play the acoustic guitar and sing, and I'm inspired
by several genres. I spend much of my free time practicing music,
enjoying music I love, exploring new music, and performing for
others. I host a local open mic and monthly house concerts.
I'm a computer geek. I was a computer programmer in my former life.
My idea of fun is installing a new version of Linux, learning a new
programming language, or writing a program that improves my life in
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I strive to live simply, which means that I try to live with few
possessions and an abundance of love and joy. In other words, more
fun, less stuff. This philosophy allowed me to retire at an early
age, so I can focus on what truly matters: learning new things,
having new experiences, playing music, and spending time with good
people. I want to expand my horizons. I'm not very "outdoorsy," but
I'm quick to admit that I need more roller coasters, kayaking,
dolphins, rock climbing, and hang gliding in my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking. I enjoy learning and problem-solving. I'm a voracious
reader. I love both sides of my brain.
Listening, caring, and helping others.
Organizing my time and getting things done.
I also like to think I'm a pretty good musician.

Probably my eyes. People ask me if I have Asian heritage. I don't,
as far as I know.
Some people think I'm shy or aloof. Others find me quite open and
assertive. It depends on the person and the situation. Many people
find me intriguing and intelligent.

Haskell, which is a functional programming language. It's very
different from anything I've used. I feel like I'm learning to
program all over again, which is a thrill. I've read two books on
it, and I'm understanding it better, but I still can't seem to
write much code in it.
