My self-summary
I live an active, busy life and overbook myself intentionally. My friends tell me to relax once in a while and I do my best not to listen.

My life is programming, the outdoors, random events with friends, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. If you're somehow also interested in all of these things, we share the same brand of insanity and I would absolutely love to meet you.

It may be clear from my mix of activities, but I'm an outgoing introvert, enjoying both quiet nights and loud parties.

Psychology is fun to think about, so if you care about the Myers-Briggs, I'm an ESTJ. That basically means I'm a solid leader and the life of the party....but only if no one else claims those roles first. It also literally means nothing at all because the Myers-Briggs is completely pointless.
What I’m doing with my life
I train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, go camping a lot, play too many board games, and occasionally (ok, often...) spend too much time on Reddit.

In the other bits of free time I have, I'm building a bottle cap table, putting together a 3000-piece 3D puzzle, and trying to find someone else who wants to go skydiving.
I’m really good at
Skiing, climbing, board games, poorly re-telling jokes, puns, and cooking pretty much everything except ribs, which always turn out black and charred no matter how much care I give them.

Oh, being different! Who wants to be normal? There's nothing exciting about being just like everyone else.
The first things people usually notice about me
...are that I'm hyper-ultra-competitive and that I view absolutely everything in life as a game or contest,

and usually quiet until comfortable and then the life of the party.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Harry Potter series, Eragon Series, House of Leaves, A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Moneyball

Shows: The League, iZombie, HIMYM, Walking Dead, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., BMS. I generally prefer shows that make a person think, but can also find crude humor hilarious on occasion.

Movies: The Guardian, The Great Escape, the new Batman trilogy, Inception, The Adjustment Bureau, anything at all by Wes Anderson. Anything that either makes you think hard about life or psychology, ties action into a good story, or does an exceptionally good job at dumb humor.

Music: Anything but "ghetto rap," slow country, or repetitive hip hop works for me. Nightcore covers, mashups, pop country, and classic rock tend to be my favorites.

Food: I follow a fairly strict diet and really care about what goes into my body and how I feel. When I do pull a human and cheat on that diet, it tends to be with pizza, chocolate milk, or a good glass of wine.
Six things I could never do without
-- The internet and my computer. It's good to be a nerd.

-- BJJ. It's a wonderful thing - workouts, brotherhood, and a sink for my incredibly competitive spirit all in one.

-- Cell phone. Not even kidding; it's almost a necessity.

-- Sleep. I simply do not understand how people survive on less than 5 hours of sleep a night.

-- Puzzles and logic problems. No seriously, I once bought a book not to read it but to solve the puzzle contained within it.

-- Intelligence. I have very little respect for unintelligent people. Does that make me a bad person?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-- How to make myself a better person.

-- Why people don't consistently change their opinion when proven wrong. And how easy it is to educate oneself with "The Google" when such a person tries to explain said opinion with faulty logic.

-- Why everyone in the Walking Dead can only speak in a dramatic tone of voice.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually hanging out with friends - it's been a long time since I've had a quiet Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have 2 3D puzzles serving as decoration in my room.

There's nothing I really need to hide. I'm an open book - AMA!
