I do not take myself very seriously. Eventually I'd like to settle down and have some nice, strong convictions about big issues... I know I'll feel warm and fuzzy inside once I've figured out the answers to all the important questions. But right now I'm confused about most of them and am okay with that.
I enjoy being sarcastic, saying absurd things, and composing convoluted analogies that muddle my point instead of clarifying it. Usually people can tell when I'm being serious. Sometimes I cannot.
Outside the nine to five, I'm dice-chucking, whiskey-drinking, trail-blazing, kettlebell-swinging, frisbee-slinging, pan-frying, and city-meandering.
I've also recently been getting into philosophy and pop psychology. So far I've figured out that humans are irrational and that there is a lot of disagreement about morality.
Also, working on a super cool website that will definitely revolutionize the way the world critically examines and discuss important issues and published works (no chance of failure fo sho).

*UPDATE* I discovered my correct-path-choosing intuition is not so great after I wandered into Harriman state park by myself with no map and a dead cell phone.

How's New York City holding up? Judging from what I've read on this site, it's been used by a lot of people. People who apparently are so uncaring that they would BRAG about how much they "take advantage it". What has the city done to deserve such treatment?
You enjoy talking about philosophy or why people do the things they do.
