The "carl" from my username is in homage to Carl Sagan, who is basically my idol and the reason I am and will forever be fascinated by space and flying machines. Pretty much the reason I am where I am now I guess. So yeah, he's a pretty cool dude.
But I guess this is supposed to be a summary of me and not Carl Sagan. I find my self very rarely in a bad mood. I really love my life and just being alive and seeing what's out there. Here are some particular things that cause me to laugh/have fun: hiking, bridge (My roommate's professor taught us, and no it's not just for old people. Old people just know what's up.), stick fighting, usually do bouldering at Seattle Bouldering Project 2 or 3 times a week, Rubix cubes (although I am really slow at it), soccer (I'm on an indoor and outdoor team), video games, webcomics, and copious amounts of sarcasm. I am willing to try anything once, although bungee jumping might have just been a one-time thing, that was pretty terrifying. I am pretty much down for anything though.
Basically I'm here because school and working life has surrounded me with the same group of people pretty much every day, and meeting new people seems more difficult than it used to be.
