Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okay, how do I explain me in a few short phrases?
-I'm pretty damn good at doing my thing.
-I like music. A lot. But I also strongly dislike a lot of music,
too. Discerning tastes are a good thing.
-I am the most perfect balance of too-cool-for-school and smarty
What I’m doing with my life
