The rest of this is just here because I think it's good writing, and I hope you read and enjoy it. :)
I'm a Slytherin but all my friends are Hufflepuffs.
I think I give people the impression that I think I am more grown up than I actually am, because one of the childish things I like to do is spew manufactured wisdom, nod sagely, and write in complete sentences. I assure you, this is all merely because I do not know how to socialize like a normal person, not because of delusions of grandeur.
I like making jokes about things that are important, like existential risk, education policy, and scientific progress. I like being very serious about things that aren't so important, like Pokemon, chocolate, and the circus arts. I have a lot of energy, but I don't always have access to all of it. I want to be able to geek out over things that I love and find new trivial things to do, but I also want to help make progress on important problems.
I like staying positive, although I sometimes have trouble with it on my own.
