My self-summary
I like to come home after work, cook some food, watch Netflix or work on some project. My number one reason for going out is probably to eat some kind of food. Not to say I won't do other things, but I'd prefer not the loud and crowded places. (unless it's a concert)
That said, I want to do more travelling and going places, particularly outdoorsy activities. Probably because it doesn't involve as many people. I've been seeing a bunch of articles lately about turning old buses into campers and road tripping and I got the jonesin to road trip somewhere soon.
What I’m doing with my life
QA Engineer at a video game company. Fun company, great people, pays well, and challenging work. It will do well for a job until I land a dream position as the owner of the new Cheers bar.
I'm trying to get back into brewing beer (and cider, wine, and sake) after a short hiatus. My collection of instruments seems to never stop increasing, though I'm a drummer at heart.
Sometimes I build robots.
I’m really good at
Narrating board games and knowing everything there is to know about Pokemon. (I thought it was cool before Pokemon GO came out)
I can be a huge nerd when I want to, and that is usually all the time.
I've got a good ten-ish dinner recipes down pretty solid. I'd like to learn more, but I have the issue of always cooking way more food than I can eat.
I can grow squash and peppers really well. If you want squash, I got squash. Lots of it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love me a good comedy, whether it's a TV show, movie, or book.
Trying to finish all the books I never got to reading on my train rides. The 'A Wrinkle in Time' series might be my favorite books though.
Just finished It's Always Sunny and man was I missing out on that. There's a lot of things in the Netflix queue that I am in need of catching up on though, since I'm not normally watching TV.
I lean towards classic rock and prog when it comes to music genres, but I usually find a new band I really like every month or so. Some new ones lately are Hiatus Kaiyote, Lisa Hannigan, Vulfpeck, and Dopapod.
I foolishly love eating spicy food even though my stomach is starting to hate me for it. In my brief time living in Chicago I fell in love with the ramen at Furious Spoon and try to pilgrimage there every chance I get.
The six things I could never do without
1. Car - I don't get how people don't have a car. How do you get places in emergencies?
2. A Project - I always need to have something to work on or a goal to work towards. If not, I get pretty listless.
3. Youtube - It's my main source of entertainment, really.
4. Music - Life is too boring without a soundtrack.
5. Air conditioning - The frugal side of me has tried to run the AC as little as possible this summer, but I love the cold and I am not heat tolerant at all.
6. Pasta - I don't think I could ever give up noodles.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What fun things await me at work, what's for dinner, where I should go for the weekend, and where's the next place I'd visit when I have time.
I try not to think about American politics. Not that I think about other countries' politics.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing board games with my friends probably, or getting a drink after work with work buddies. When I was between jobs a few years ago I got bored and built a bar; it'd be great if I could start combining the two activities with it.
You should message me if
I'm not a complete recluse when it comes to meeting new people, but I'm no expert either. I'm pretty shy and any kind of messaging will probably be a slow steady burn. All I ask is we talk about crazy interesting things; I am awful at small talk.
