My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My mom tells me I'm a real catch.

I'm a transplant from the great liberal oasis that is Austin, TX, and as such, I'm partial to say "y'all" and the occasional ironic "howdy".

From Austin I moved to Seattle for a Ph.D. program at UW, studying genetics. I loved it. Partially because I love science and partially because geneticists are, hands down, the dopest people on the planet. Believe it.

Eventually, though, I dropped out because I didn't have as much freedom to work on the things I wanted to work on as I thought I would. Now I work on the things I want to work on. Mainly internet programming stuff that somehow makes money.

During one summer in grad school, I interned as a science reporter at the Oregonian through the AAAS. That was pretty neat. If you're into science, you can read some of my articles here: http://connect.oregonlive.com/user/bblakeley/index.html

I'm a slut for fresh linens, seasonal cocktails, and the Oxford comma.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to experience as many things as possible and get a little bit better at a lot of stuff every day.

Career-wise, I do freelance web development. Previously I wrote programs that create and upload videos to YouTube, mostly of an educational flavor. On top of these videos run ads (I'm sure you've seen them before) and each time someone clicks one, I'm like, one nickel richer. It's frankly pretty astounding how quickly it adds up.

While I love programming, it's ultimately motivated by the desire to have the freedom to do whatever I want, whenever I want: mainly, travel. My most recent adventure involved learning Muay Thai for a month in Thailand, followed up with slow travel through Chiang Mai, Singapore, and Saigon.

I'm a little obsessed with various fitness stuff: weightlifting, rock climbing, slacklining, yoga. I also enjoy karaoke (only at public bars -- private rooms are for wimps), and cooking.

And of course, I always love meeting new people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Overusing parthetheses (sometimes they get nested (sometimes that gets messy)).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I run into people I know in public, I sometimes say "hi" well before we've reached a comfortable distance for communicating. And then we have to kinda stare at each other and smile awkwardly for another 50 feet.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Based on my recent spending, I apparently value a solid wifi connection over potable tap water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Fitness, programming, sex, mathematics, people, entrepreneurship. All at once.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
pretending that bars are really good places to meet very interesting people
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
