I went to Harvey Mudd College, which was a totally amazingly awesome school, but it sort of ate my soul. I loved being there, but I'm also happy I made it out. Now I'm out in the real world, doing the code-monkey thing, and actually making money, instead of spending it in large quantities, which is sort of a nice feeling.
I also like to think of myself as a vocalist. Not professionally, of course, but I'd been singing in a cappella groups and various choirs since 10th grade, and took a couple years of voice lessons in college. When I moved to Long Beach, I looked around for a choir to join, and by some miracle, actually found one, the Long Beach Camarata. They're actually quite good - way better than any group I sang with in school. I also love musicals, though the chance of being in any more of those is somewhat smaller now that I've graduated. So I mostly just have to watch them, which is still fun, if not as much as performing. And, heck, I'll sing with just about anything that'll have me (I always end up singing random places with my dad's obscure neofolky band when I'm back visiting, for instance.)
I'm definitely your average geek-type, and for the most part proud of it. I like having intellectual conversations about just about anything, from the academic/philosophical to the absurd (often both at once). I love reading, love all sorts of geeky music, obsess over various tv shows and/or movies, play various time-sucking games... the usual.
