My self-summary
Nerd, optimist, autodidact, introvert, enigma.

I think I'm a good mix of emotional (thoughtful, caring, joyful etc.) and rational (good at talking things out instead of simply reacting).

Much like you, I hate writing about myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Building a small business, and finding ways to enjoy the city and try new things on a budget.
I’m really good at
Thinking. Walking in other people's shoes. "Reading" animals. Cooking. Hugs. Self-sufficiency. Procrastinating. Dealing with difficult people. Tsudoku.
The first things people usually notice about me
Apparently I always look tired. My resting expression is also kind of serious/stern, which is a bit dismaying.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Fiction: Farseer Trilogy, Song of Ice and Fire, Kingkiller Chronicles, Discworld, Earthsea, Jorge Luis Borges, Mervyn Peake.

Books - Nonfiction: Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman, Freakonomics by Stephen and Steven, Nudge by Rhicard Thaler and Cass Sunstein.

Movies: Shawshank Redemption, 12 Angry Men, Stardust, To Kill a Mockingbird, Spirited Away, The Black Stallion, The Princess Bride, Inception... many others.

Shows: Cowboy Bebop, Walking Dead, Firefly, Fresh Off the Boat, Parks and Rec, Friends, Scrubs, Star Trek: TNG, NYPD Blue, FMA: Brotherhood, Attack On Titan, Cowboy Bebop. It kinda looks like I stopped watching TV in the 90's doesn't it?

Music: Rock and Roll. Pink Ffloyd, Counting Crows and They Might Be Giants. My phone is full of film and video game scores and weird silly songs like Yes We Have No Bananas and Kung Fu Fighting.

Podcasts: Freakonomics, Radiolab, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, EconTalk, StarTalk, The Moth, The World in Words, Hidden Brain, This American Life. Wish I had time and attention for more.

Food - Love sushi. Hate cilantro. Everything else depends on the mood of the hour.
The six things I could never do without
Sarcastically Literal Six -


Materialistic Six -

Smart phone
Good sharp knives
Counter space
A good pair of shoes
Money... this one might belong in the literal six.

Spiritual Six -

Trees and birds and all those nature-y things (yet still I love New York)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Deep philosophical questions, the origins of random words, and psychological boogiemen.
On a typical Friday night I am
Plotting out the thousand chores I didn't have time for during the week, which I will then not do on Saturday because dammit, it's Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate Harry Potter. I read all seven books just to make sure he didn't develop any redeeming qualities. He didn't... but I still really want to read Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality.
