Who am I? Heck, that's hard to say. Let me throw some labels at you. INTP. Nerd. Geek. Dork. Lesbian. Poly. Atheist. Warrior.
Well, that wasn't very helpful, was it? Hmm, let's try a different approach.
I'm in an awesome relationship with an awesome woman. I'm not actively looking for anyone else. That said, I'm not against new relationships either, from the casual to the romantic.
I work at a major computer and personal electronics company you might have heard of, doing work for their online store. I'm pretty darn good at what I do.
I'm passionate about the truth. Not with a capital 'T' - if I've learned anything it's that when someone talks about truth with a capital 'T' it's far more likely than average to be anything but. No, it's just little-t truth I care about. I want my beliefs to match reality as closely as I can possibly make them, and this pressing desire has led me to scepticism, which has been among the biggest blessings in my life.
I'm a good listener. I'm not such a good talker. I do write decent prose, though.
I love board games and card games. Not so much the standard fare - Monopoly is annoying, Sorry makes me near-homicidal, checkers bores me and I'm not the greatest at chess (though I do enjoy it.) But I love a lot of games; war games, strategy games, logic games, party games. I've recently been very into deckbuilding games. I've got several bookshelves full of games, and my collection is growing.
Speaking of bookshelves, I've got significantly more of those full of books. Not all are mine; a lot are my partner's and quite a few are inherited and not yet read. But even not counting those, my book collection is not small.
I'm an autodidact. I freakin' love to learn. It has led me to a fairly broad and occasionally deep education. This ties in nicely with my above-mentioned passion for the truth.
I'm shy, introverted, and I have social anxiety. Yes, those are all different, and yes, all three apply to me. That said, most people don't seem to notice. I have very good coping skills.
I love to fight. Not so much in the mental/emotional sense, though I do get involved in more online arguments than is good for me. I mean in the physical sense. I swordfight in Dagorhir every weekend, I attend monthly wrestling classes, and I'm attending two weeks of martial retreat in April, which has me ridiculous levels of excited. If I'm not fighting regularly, I get depressed; it's that big a deal for me.
I play, and occasionally run tabletop RPGs. I'm always involved in at least one, often more ongoing campaigns. It's a big deal for me; it's one of my main and my favourite ways of socialising with friends, and one of my passions.
Most of my friends are liberals. I'm not. Neither am I conservative, nor really would I call myself a moderate, or an of the convenient and helpful labels that can be readily absorbed. I'm aligned with liberals on many things, especially social justice issues. I'm aligned with conservatives on a fair amount of things as well, notably gun rights. But all that is within the context of a state, and more broadly, within civilisation, and I'm very much against both of those, and consider the issues of environment and civilisation to be the most pressing ones for me, though I do take social justice issues quite seriously as well.
I'm staunchly pro-oxford comma, and pro-two spaces after a period.
I'm a feminist, and if you aren't at all, don't bother contacting me. Life's too short to deal with a-holes that don't want equality.
Anyway. That was kind of a random assortment. I expect I'll come back to this and flesh it out, make it less random, but for now this will do. It's definitely an improvement over the wayyyyyyyyy old and outdated, wow-I'm-not-like-that-anymore-at-all description I had before.
