My self-summary
Update: I took a Personal DNA personality test thing, which is here: I feel this is a pretty good look at me!

I'm creative, passionate, rational, geeky, and loving. I love experiencing life and the beauty of the world. I want to share the world with someone close.

I draw and write sometimes. I also like to flesh out ideas for games. I want to work in a creative way. I'm an aspiring video game designer. Right now, I work in quality assurance at Nintendo.

When something truly speaks to me, I get very passionate about it. In general, I have a deep passion for helping people deal with problems, discussing deep questions, and making people feel better about themselves and the world. It's cathartic, and helps me learn about myself.

I'm an atheist. I think that religion stems from fears and irrationality, and that people should always feel free to question their beliefs. I feel that open questioning leads to atheism, or at least agnosticism. I actually am upset at how transparently fake so many religions are, and how they're handed down, traditionally, and blindly followed.

Aside from that, I like to know how things work. I like to know how people work. If I don't know the answer to a question, I work very hard to find an answer. I love learning new things, in all fields. I spend a decent amount of time reading scientific articles and learning about new developments in research.

I play games and watch anime a lot. I like thought-provoking things the most. Anything that communicates something original catches my attention. My favorite anime is Steins;Gate, and my favorite video game is Perfect Dark for the N64. I occasionally roleplay (more online these days) as well.

Love is a deep thing for me. I feel like I can truly express myself in love. I want romance and deep connections, true understanding. Sadly, a lot of my relationships have been more of me giving to someone else and not getting the same level in return. I hope that will change... I may love too much, too quickly.

Oh, and my hair is blue.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working to pay off my student loans right now. When I feel like my finances are back in order, I'll go back to finish my degree that I'm halfway through. I'm working on becoming a game designer. Beyond that, I relax and have fun.
I’m really good at
video games, and listening, and discussing things like philosophy and politics. I'm also decent at drawing and playing the guitar and piano. I'm also apparently a good singer, placing #20 on the worldwide leaderboard for Rock Band on two songs.

Edit: Bumped down to like, 27 on one and 37 on the other. Ah well. There was a time!
The first things people usually notice about me
My intelligence is the first thing people notice about me. The one thing people notice about me is my intelligence and my blue hair. Two things. The two things that people notice, when they first meet me are my intelligence, blue hair, and humor. Three things that people notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Yay bullet point lists. These aren't in any particular order. In general, I like science fiction and psychological things, and especially humor. I watch a lot of anime, and generally obscure titles, like Bakemonogatari, Nichijou, Steel Angel Kurumi... titles you wouldn't hear about unless you're an otaku.

For music, I like a huge variety, but my soul lives in the 80's. There's some modern music I like. I get most of my exposure to music from Rock Band. I play guitar and sing, and occasionally try out drums. (I play bass for Hysteria by Muse though... it's sublime.)

I sometimes play video games. I play Minecraft, but not religiously. I'll play TF2 or Killing Floor occasionally. I play Rock Band pretty frequently. I love Super Smash Bros. Melee, and I like party games. To tell the truth, I miss playing multiplayer games with friends on the same couch.

I also love board games and card games. Pretty much any game I've tried, I've liked. I like Settlers of Cataan, Apples to Apples, Puerto Rico, Dominion, Tanto Cuore, Munchkin, Chez Geek, Ninja Burger, the Pink Godzilla Dev Kit game, Revolution, even older games like Monopoly, Risk, and Clue.

Favorite books:
-Ender's Game
-The Westing Game
-The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series
-Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (and the sequel)
-The Drawing of the Three (The best of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series)

-Fight Club
-Scott Pilgrim Vs The World
-The Princess Bride
-The Matrix (before the sequels came out.)
-Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail (cliche, but I love it)
-The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

-Azumanga Daioh
-Lucky Star
-Cowboy Bebop
-Ghost in the Shell

-Van Halen
-Disturbed's "Indestructible" album (I don't like their other albums nearly as much.
-Koji Kondo (the Nintendo composer responsible for the music in the Mario and Zelda series, among others.)
-the Metal Gear Solid soundtrack.

-Italian food. Anything at all.
-Most Mexican food.
-Most Chinese food.
-Mongolian grills. (There's a great one in the U District in Seattle)
-My own homemade spaghetti (I use a lot of spices).
-Spicy food.

Clothing style:
-I love gothic lolita, even though I don't have that much in that style.
Six things I could never do without
Basic, boring necessities of life aside, I would be pretty upset if I didn't have the Internet. I keep in touch with a LOT of people online. I suppose that means friends are another huge part of my life. What would be the point of the Internet if nobody else was on it?

I'd also be pretty upset if I didn't have any musical instruments. I have an electric guitar that I like to play, and a keyboard that is a little broken that I wish I could play without being afraid of breaking it.

Three more? I think I could handle any circumstance as long as I had friends and access to them. I suppose games, anime, and money for good food would round things out, but I can live without all of those things as long as I have friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, the future, psychology, what the fourth dimension really is (and it's inherent mathematical properties), puzzling conundrums like why the tsundere archetype is so rare in western media and what that means sociologically, game mechanics, science, and what I'd like to draw or write next.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with a friend, playing games or watching anime.
You should message me if
you want a deep connection or just to meet someone who likes gaming, anime, and sociology/psychology. I'm looking for someone to love, but I'm not averse to meeting new friends either.
The two of us
