My self-summary
I read on someone else's profile that "You can't really tell someone who you are. You can only show them." That seems true, if a bit corny.
What I’m doing with my life
Same things as you probably: chasing dreams, checking off bucket lists, looking for meaning. Not that it often feels as grand as all that during the minutiae of the day.

Practically speaking, I spend almost all of my time designing and programming videogames in a Master's degree program.
I’m really good at
avoiding silly questions.
The first things people usually notice about me
From what I've been told, it's usually that I'm reading at a social event.

**Food**
Anything mostly. (Except this weird cranberry sauce looking jello thing that I shoved in my mouth in China. It was meant as a condiment apparently. Bleh.) I especially like meat, thai, lemon or butter flavored things, curries, chinese, indian, sushi.
I don't like cake very much. But pie is great.
The six things I could never do without
Nothing. I'm low maintenance.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have a robot heart.
You should message me if
we have something in common. Or if we have nothing in common.
