Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Insecure, often but decreasingly so. Damn funny, when comfortable.
Intelligent; sometimes too much for my own good. What flavor of
intelligence? Quick, curious, critical (often), intellectual
(sometimes) and introspective (always). Extroverted, but the
complete opposite of outgoing. A tough combination to live with.
Interests skew strongly towards nerdy. LOVE to talk about, analyse,
and share those interests; can become a geek at the drop of a hat.
A person of ever-changing obsessions, will immerse myself in some
cultural element (website, book series, tv show, comic books, etc.)
and devour it relentlessly, until the next thing catches my
interest. Unfailingly polite (often used as social armor when out
of my element). Considerate and kind, except with myself.
Hilariously unlucky at games of chance. Have no problems with
cameras, yet manage to be less well-documented than Bigfoot. Often
misunderstood, and unfortunately hate being misunderstood more than
almost everything (second only to being patronized). Occasionally,
I can be kind of a spelling/grammar despot. And never quite happy
with the way I describe myself, which makes me reluctant to contact
people here, lest they read this and get the wrong impression.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wresting as many stolen moments of fun and joy from a fairly busy
drudgery of work and school. The latter consists of studying to be
a counselor for families and/or children. The former usually takes
the form of hanging with family and/or friends, often playing
games, but just as often watching movies or with no express
purpose, just spending time talking, joking around and laughing.
Always lots of laughing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making my friends laugh. Even better at making family laugh. Partly
a positive correlation with how at ease I feel, but also due to
certain family members being consummate "appreciators"
(self-described). I'll usually take whatever I get, but my favorite
(and incidentally my forté) is the half-surprised, half-startled
laugh that comes in response to something particularly absurd.
The first things people usually notice about me

Physically? I don't know, that I almost always have a two-three day
beard (negotiable)? Or that I wear glasses (not up for
Otherwise, that I am quiet at first, and sometimes come off as a
know-it-all, usually because I'm shy and only pitch in when I'm
absolutely sure it's relevant or intelligent. But once I hit my
stride I feel quite free to share any ridiculous thought that
enters my head.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
