(oh lordy this got long, feel free to skip, you'll learn all this if you spend much time talking to me anyways.)
I'm a geek, yeah big news there, but to put things in perspective, my friends are all fellow geeks, and when i say that I mean people who have a love of things many people aren't even aware of such as many old table top RPGs and hidden gem video games. We spend time talking about how to solve engineering problems and scientific theories. Then we turn around and pew pew things for fun.
Why does all that matter for perspective? Because everyone of them to a T has claimed me to be vastly geekier than them. Honestly, I'm kinda proud of that, because the things I have interest in I like knowing so much about and and I enjoy creating worlds from my inspirations.
Moving on, I'm cynical, but not aggressively so, I expect less of people than I sometimes should, but that's because I also have been naive in the past, and will be again in the future, and expected more. My cynicism is not the usual "people are horrible" view point either, I see people as what we are before you intermix any faith or religion into the mix. We are products of a cosmic pattern, this would lead to an acceptance of predetermined destiny but i also feel that the lack of this feeling and the will to believe that we can change our future is inherently key to this pattern, so this pattern is not worth thought.
That said, I do have a strong set of morals, and my respect for individuals is governed by those morals. I hold myself to those morals as best I can and am harsher on my self than anyone else. I am always willing to believe the better of those I consider close, this is perhaps a flaw at times, but also key to my psyche. The analogy I always use is that I am a wolf, I form my pack, and they receive my affection and protection as best I am able to provide. Those outside the pack are relatively unimportant to me, as such I will not likely go beyond what is polite in my encounters with them.
Lastly, I value my self control, I spend time meditating and I view self control as an important part of my moral structure, better to have emotion as an adviser than to allow it to run the whole thing, after all emotion is an impulsive sonva** who tends to cause trouble if left to its own devices.
This last bit is important to remember, I have sometimes been described as cold or uncaring, while others have claimed those who made this argument are simply blind or otherwise expect everyone to be as emotionally outward as they are, it is important to remember, that just because I may seem not to care as much as you expect, the truth is that I have very strong emotions, I simply have learned to control them.
(So yeah basically I'm like Spock, cool?)
Also playing ARK: Survival Evolved because its awsome.
Lastly if yer a gamer, you'll find I adapt to a new game quite quickly, when a new title is released I'm often one of the best players in each match, however I master a game much slower and tend to get left behind as just a bit better than the statistical average (which as we know is made up of semi-casual players)
Offline, I assume most just see a quiet geek who is fairly shy, on top of that I have a sad tendency of making people who don't know me well think I'm obsessed with being smarter than others, the issue is that my experience has thought me I generally am, though I dislike the rift it causes, I never judge someone who is willing to learn either, only those who are arrogantly close minded.
In short, if you feel like I am trying to show off or something, I'm not. If I correct you, its because I genuinely want you to be accurate, not some sense of superiority, that or I'm just realigning what you said before it goes into my head so that it is in a format my mind will accept.
Movies: Fight Club and The Matrix are easily my two favorites, just to list a few more. Down Periscope, Pulp Fiction, Star Wars (original trilogy) Lord of the Rings, and many others from varying genres.
Shows: Burn Notice, House, a few sci-fis like Farscape, Firefly and Battlestar Galactica, and several animas such as Death Note, Wolf's Rein, Ergo Proxy, Ghost in the Shell, and Full Metal Alchemist
Music: Pretty broad though i mostly listen to heavy metal and goth metal, but i greatly enjoy all forms of electronic, specifically dubstep, and drum and bass. My only strong dislikes are most country, rap, R&B, and hip-hop, but even these have a couple exceptions. Currently I am obsessed with Machinae Supremacy.
Food: I can be picky but i like a wide variety, the only definite here is my dislike for anything bitter.
Interesting lore or mystery
My humanism perspective
Are familiar with any table top worlds, especially playing them.
Are the kinda girl who can kick my ass in video games.
Or are just curious.
