My self-summary
The first thing you should know about me is that I have been known to breathe oxygen. I love reading, writing, admiring art, and drawing. I consider most other forms of expression sub-optimal but I do enjoy the diversion of a good conversation. I'm also fairly spacey. If you're an artist, a writer, or simply insane I'm sure we'd get along swimmingly. I'm also partial to intellectuals. Then again, no two traits are as poorly complemented as talent and self-importance; a proper genius should have humility enough to honestly deny their genius and shrug off their superior abilities as amounting to little in the grander scheme of things.

I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking for here on OK Cupid. I have a sneaking suspicion that friendship and love as we understand them are simply constructs of Hallmark and Hollywood. All the same, there are a lot of people I value in my life. Potentially, I think there could be people I value more than my life. For some time I've been thinking I'd love to have an arch nemesis; maybe a mentor or some disciples. I could certainly use a muse. Mostly though, I want to meet the kind of people with whom I can share something both intimate and undefinable; something with rules, boundaries and norms all our own but well suited to such extravagant bywords as “fate” and “destiny.”

I'm also fairly queer. I take pride in my androgynous, often feminine appearance. Not that I lack a certain mannish presence... Quite simply, I am very comfortable being myself.

As for my interests, you can pretty much pick anything at random from any listing of university degree programs and find something that fascinates me. I take an interest in political issues and discourse but tend to consider arguments a mere display of rhetorical acrobatics of no more significance than a person's choice of wardrobe. I am skeptical of morality but think quite highly of impeccable taste.

I like to exercise quite frequently. Mainly the martial arts, swimming, and walks. I also run sometimes. God do I ever love sleep. And food. I also enjoy any place with a lot of trees, natural bodies of water, and no people. I live a fairly healthy lifestyle besides being a titch insane.
What I’m doing with my life
After recieving my pseudo-humanities BA with all these pompous honours I found out it wasn't actually good for anything but my own private edification. So, I joined the circus and went into Game Dev. After another trip through college to learn how to program (and ending up a TA), I landed myself a job as an artist doing graphics for games, an area in which I am entirely self taught. Life is strange that way...

Basically I want to spend my entire life doing something creative. Writting, illustration, comics, video games; anything I can get my hands on. I have this great desire to be remembered as an insane genius after I'm dead. So far I've only gotten around to the insane part.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask and I'm pretty much an open book.
You should message me if
It pleases you to do so. I simply shall not stand for anyone to suffer by engaging me in correspondence!

On the other hand, if you happen to be a creepy pervert interested only in sex, I shall have to ask you not to message me. Otherwise I will be forced to hate you most exceedingly.
