I’ve always been a computer geek. Not only do I love playing computer games (think Civilization V), but I’ve enjoyed building and tinkering with the machines.
I have set up an extra computer as a DVR with a Linux operating system.
Computers extend into my professional life, too. I work for a non-profit company that runs computers for libraries. I know it sounds glamorous (don’t rush to message me all at once, ladies), but I’m happy—and there’s nothing else I would rather be doing.
I took two semesters of Japanese. こっにちは！ 日本語でわたしに書く。

Food: In my dream home, I would grow my own food—fruit trees in the front yard and a vegetable garden in the back. I'm actually on a diet right now. I lost about 40 lbs so far.
Or you just want to.
