Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the least-qualified person I know to summarize myself;
summarization of the self seems like the paraphrasing of a
half-imagined book: I dunno if I can do it. I'll ask my friends to
summarize me and then report back here, but in the mean time:
I crave interaction, shared experience, communication and
expression. My friends and family are important to me, and I live
for time spent together doing things that make us laugh.
I have views and opinions and I love argument. I will jump at the
opportunity to explain something or examine an idea. I value
integrity and the golden rule.
I'm dry-humored and often times very silly. I hug with furious
agency. I'll try any number of crazy antics, flirtatious
tomfoolery, or acts of kindness to make people smile. I'm wanted
dead or alive in 24 states for my terrible puns.
I've discovered a lot of joy in riding my bike, and I like sharing
things that bring me joy with the people close to me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

failing; falling; getting up; sometimes not getting up; exercising;
laughing; loving; discussing; listening.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at doing voices and impersonations; I'm really good
at cooking pasta; I'm really good at eating candy; I've been told I
can make people laugh. I'm good at long conversations in front of
the movie theater after an amazing film.
I'm really good at saying "ugh!" at things that I love. Or when
something is just so amazing that it's...so...just, ugh!

My obnoxiously loud shoes.
That's just a guess; I think this is really asking me what I want
people to first notice about me, but I'm not sure what that is.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, my friends, my health, my hands, my feet, integrity, and
the number 7.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Problem solving issues at work, novels that I've been reading,
hypothetical conversations and arguments that I might have with
various other people. Also, is Alan Moore crazy...or crazy like a
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and about.
On the better than typical Friday nights, I'm in, cooking for my
friends, listening to music and deciding which board game to pull
from the board game shelf (the shelf where board games are kept).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
