My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I feel as though there are a million ways to paint oneself, and I can't even find the goddamn brush.

I am first and foremost a human being. I suppose that's as good a start as any. Beyond that, it depends very much on the moment at which you catch me. I might be an artist, a programmer, a musician, a teacher, a gamer, a lousy sleeper or a terrible cook. The two generalisations I'm confident in making are that I am creative, and sleepy.

I'm here because I despise the idea of trying to "pick up" out there, in the social wilds, and this has always seemed like a more reasonable alternative. In truth, I don't much like the idea of dating in general. It's a game I'm not great at; despite getting on well with most people I meet, I can be rather nervous at first. Alas, as I near my 30's I'm beginning to think it's one of those things that may never change - so, you know, if you're looking for someone who's super-confident off the bat you're probably in the wrong place. On the flip side I've picked "university lecturer" for my career, and I think that might give you some idea as to my willingness to fight my own stupid nerves. I'm definitely not so anxious once I get to know my audience.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

No, really; I spend much of my spare time designing and developing games, though I've so far kept it noncommercial. For the monies, I work at a university where I lecture in games programming, design, animation and various other multimedia-ish things.

Eventually I plan to commercially release some of my own titles, but I suspect I may keep teaching even during/after that either way. I like helping people to develop the skills they need to realise their creative ambitions. It's rewarding.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Neat, self-contained challenges where the rules of reality don't apply; like videogames and university degrees.

I am fundamentally lazy. As it happens, thinking of ways to avoid hard work takes a lot of hard work.

I have a good mind for solving problems, and I love to create things, though most of my skills could broadly be considered useless when it comes to real life - I play a few instruments, draw, design and program videogames, and do various other multimedia things. I cannot cook or drive - though I'm pretty decent at MacGyvering broken things around the house, for what it's worth.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told my eyes are rather striking... so I'll run with that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The intelligent ones, the fun ones, the difficult ones, the British ones, and those which are full-flavor.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hope. More specifically; the hope that arbitrary lists of superficial nonsense will one day cease to exist.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to get out of the rain.

42, and all those other overused-but-distinctly-relevant quips.

Every time somebody lists their cat or dog or whatever as one of the things they could never live without, I think "damn"... 'Cause I'm only interested in people who plan to be around for more than five-to-ten years.*

*But I love my dog, too.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Staying up way past any sort of reasonable bedtime (perhaps my favourite hobby).

Hanging out with friends, possibly checking out bars in the city - where I flip wildly between feeling like I'm a part of something and feeling like I'm just in some messy room with bright lights and crazy people. Not that there's anything wrong with crazy people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Whenever somebody describes themselves as a ‘happy’ or ‘upbeat’ person, I secretly hope that something bad happens to them. Not really bad… but, you know, ‘bad enough’.

I am a little cynical, a little dysthymic, but the frustration I feel with the world gives weight and meaning to the things I like. Despite a dark sense of humor and occasional negativity, I'm still kind to the people around me - and fiercely loyal to the people I love.

... you want a break from the usual - which, if you've gotten this far, certainly seems to be the case.

She said only one or two people would likely appreciate the mathematical wordplay. I said, "odds are... not even."
