My self-summary
I am a lot of different things, which makes explaining a bit hard but what the heck, right? To start, I should probably give my name. I go by Tim, but my full first name is decently longer than that. Guesses are more than welcome.

I'm a nerd, geek, all those things and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love playing video games like Bioshock, Mass Effect, Team Fortress 2, Portal, Marvel vs Capcom, and many more. I love to read all sorts of books, and I tend to fly through books once I get the chance to sit and read.

I've gotten into writing poetry and stories; I like the feeling of the wind and the rain, running outside and seeing the stars. I like moments where I can see infinity and feel minuscule, and moments where I find that in myself. I like being quiet, letting my mind wander and I like being loud with friends, having a good time.
What I’m doing with my life
I've graduated from RIT with my degree in Computer Science, and have moved down to the DC area, working as a programming contractor.
I’m really good at
Solving puzzles, listening, games, giving hugs

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Random things, I have gone from thinking hard about the name of a character I would like to write about to what is the best way to position my bottom arm when cuddling with someone.

When I say random, I mean stuff like this, which was my response when I was asked "what's on your mind?":

I keep remembering my mind a lifetime ago when I sought the time to play with words like a puzzle because my brain is at its best when its solving puzzles and games and writing poetry was like an expression of a non-imaginary alternate reality in which I had been stripped of my sight in order to feel enough that I could craft emotion on an anvil of empathy with a hammer of stylized hyperbolic imagery and reforge a broken soul splintered by strife and worn by time yet that dead dreamer awoke underwater and drowned himself alive washed up on a shore and no longer could lose himself inside a storm but maybe the storm that existed in his past is inaccessible due to the tense of his present which would lead him to his current that once traveled through him when lightning used him to ground but that just invited him to ask the same question; does the same lightning ever strike twice?
On a typical Friday night I am
Since I still am trying to make friends in the area, I am most likely at home, playing video games, watching a movie, or just generally relaxing. I could even be out at a club or a bar, just having a good time being around lively people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a fear of heights. It's not crippling and it doesn't bother me very often, but sometimes when I'm up somewhere and I have a clear view down, my heart starts racing. It's something that annoys me and I do my best to ignore/overcome it when it happens.
Bonus! Poem I wrote:

Thunder clashed and lightning danced in moments that never last.
Wind grew jealous and moved in fast stealing steps of lover’s dance.
Sky knew sorrow and better envy as Wind whipped the pair to frenzy.
Love and lust lightning screamed while thunder’s radiant darkness gleamed.
Wind drunk passion a feeling neverlasting and rain grew sober a cold dusk taking over.
You should message me if
You feel like talking to someone new, if you're looking for someone to hang out with, if you saw something interesting above, or even if something I said has offended you greatly and you demand to know the reason, for which I would make such an outlandish claim. If none of these are true, but still feel like you may want to message me, do it anyway, I will probably be glad to hear from you.

If you have a riddle or a puzzle that you think will stump me, then you should definitely message me. I love those.

Also book suggestions, I can always do with more of those. I honestly would be fine with just talking about books, and characters and stories all the time. I love thinking about that sort of thing, and thinking up characters and stories of my own.

Also, if you know the meaning of the phrase, "I'm not hungry, let's have dinner." You can pretty much win me over whenever you want.
The two of us
