My self-summary
I can be funny, but absolutely destroy jokes. Mind's agile enough -- don't study much, but test well. Healthy, and healthful. A bit of a bleeding heart, though with a pragmatic streak. ENTP. Good on a road trip -- I've driven six hundred miles for a sandwich and a sunset.
Never trying for cool, really quite warm (and will build a glow in you.)

I ask questions, and listen to answers.
I like questions, and listen to askers...
What I’m doing with my life
Lately focused on this whole "your" vs "you're" thing. Apparently, it's the hardest skill for a man to master?

Also launching an art studio out of my parent's house. Should've done this a long time ago, but oh well!

namuginga.com - let me know which is your favorite :)
I’m really good at
Analogies. Thinking less like a dictionary and more like a thesaurus. I love to see how *this* is like *that* to understand and extrapolate. It's fast and fun, and the fruits of which are ideally stimulating and endearing--
(which is to say charming the pants off you...)
The first things people usually notice about me
Likely the way I walk. If you're in love with me, it's my "fancy walk." Or otherwise: "a strut," "a jumpy gait," and "a lazy bounce." I've been told it's "musical" and that I'd probably be good on a horse (I am!) Mom says I have "a good walkaway."

Also, I ask follow-up questions when I'm interested in a conversation. And when I hear, 'I don't know' it always makes me wonder, 'Ok, but what do you think?'
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
-a bit of Bill Bryson,
-Wonder Boys, and anything by Wes Anderson or Jean-Pierre Jeunet,
-Westworld - for some serious flashbacks to game development,
-Pandora: Ennio Morricone, S U R V I V E, The War on Drugs,
-and anything we can share so we can taste more.
The six things I could never do without
Showing (though I'll tell you too),
curiosity,
generosity,
my silly family,
pedagogy,
And ellipsis...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Communication. How it can bring us closer, and learning more once we're there.
On a typical Friday night I am
Tucking a flower behind your ear...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get a kick from watching dogs doing dog stuff when they don't know you're looking.
Also a sucker for someone self-aware, who can see the negative but focuses on the positive, and shares her view of things I don't see in the world.
--bonus points if you already know how to kiss.
You should message me if
You know no one likes talking about themselves, buuuuutt you also know yourself pretty well, and are willing to try.
And if you laugh at both your strengths *and* your weaknesses -- c'mon, c'mon!
