My self-summary
Hello! I'm Lennian, which is a pseudo, but you can ask for my real name in private ;) I'm a professional keyboard-killer, but I generally try to keep them in one piece as it makes my job as a programmer so much easier :P

I consider myself very open-minded as there is not much that will make me frown upon, which in return makes me a good listener as I'm always interested and willing to help. People who know me well tell me I should put myself on the first place and while I know I should, I'm happy with doing it selectively. I also love to spend time behind my PC so that probably makes me a geek.

Describing yourself is hard, I'll try to do better within the next sections and by answering questions. Still need to have something left to discuss about, right? ;)

Feel free to message me, always love to chat and get to know new people.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a graduated software engineer with a Bachelor of Computer Science degree. Because that got boring quickly, I chose to orientate myself towards Game Development over the years, which I'm doing with complete passion at the moment.

I also recently got hired as a lecturer at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA) on the subject of Software Engineering - meaning pretty much anything related to programming. This lecturing will probably bleed over into the Game Development study the HvA offers as well!
I’m really good at
Programming! Well, on a professional level that is. When it comes to more personal matters I'm a good listener and love to take care for others.
The first things people usually notice about me
Caring, shy, trustworthy, calm, respectful, helpful, probably more, but these are the ones I also try to show.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've never been much of a reader, I blame school for forcing me to read books I didn't want to read for book reports. I do like reading books on game franchises (Splinter Cell and The Witcher in particular) and occasionally just randomly pick something from my collection. I've obviously read The Da Vinci Code and such :)

I love watching movies. I constantly keep track of what is running in the cinema and keep notes on movies I'd like to see. My personal preference is movies where you have to think a lot, think Inception, Total Recall, Lucky Number Slevin, etcetera, but I enjoy pretty much anything, except for the overly cruel horror movies, I'd prefer classic horrors in that case.

I also like to watch TV shows, my TV is usually on Comedy Central so stuff like Family Guy, American Dad and the like come across. Recently discovered Modern Family as very likable, and that's not (just) because of Ed 'Al Bundy' O'Neill. Currently not really into a show other than occasionally watching something on Netflix. If you have suggestions please let me know!

Music means a lot to me. Whenever I'm on my own, I'm pretty much always listening to some music. I work better that way :) I listen to pretty much anything, I have no preference, although my collection of Hardcore, Metal, Rap, R&B and the like is slim. Currently quite into Muse! But after a long day I always fall back to 80's music like Toto, Genesis, Queen, etcetera. Oh right, and I really like listening to movie or game soundtracks.

I pretty much eat everything, there's not much I don't like or won't try.

I'd like to add an extra section that's about games: I really like playing them! My favorite genre is probably Stealth, but I play any type of game really. Love to play some Battlefield! Besides the digital type of games, I also really enjoy board or card games, for example the Settlers of Catan!
The six things I could never do without
1. A PC - It's my source of income
2. Someone to love - Does this even need explanation? None likes being lonely.
3. My family - Even though they might piss me off at times, I love them.
4. Music - It helps me concentrate

Coming up with 2 others is really hard o.o Also, the above 4 are not in order of importance.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future, where, how and with who I'd end up with. Other than that I'm pretty analytical so pretty much anything I see I turn into an idea of something "I just have to try".
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at home, watching TV, chatting, gaming. I'm not the going out type, the reason behind this is I rarely have someone to go out with and I get bored standing around a bar all evening, I'm always like "lets just do something" :P
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Even though I'm very shy and take some time to open up, just ask me anything you want to know and don't by shy to ask, it breaks the ice for me.
You should message me if
If you'd like to get to know me! I can pass around some IM details like Skype, Steam and Facebook. As said, I'm pretty shy and chatting usually helps me get over that quickly. Don't feel ashamed to ask me anything, the better I get to know you, the more I loosen up anyway :)
