My self-summary
For the life of me, I cannot think of how to market myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Dabbling in whatever interests me within a given period, whether or not I am any good at it.

I take pride in my work, but am not a slave to it, and look forward to doing the things that bring me pleasure outside of working hours.

Appreciating the time I spend with my family, close and extended, wherever they are. Though expected, death still has the capacity to shock.
I’m really good at
Daydreaming.
The first things people usually notice about me
This is not something I would ask other people about. I can't say that their first impressions matter to me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fantasy and science fiction, crime, popular science, medical thrillers.

I also enjoy reading comics.

Movies and television: hardly ever. I subscribe to Netflix or ShowMax sporadically, and rent DVDs when I am on leave.
Most of what I watch is science fiction and fantasy [this includes superhero movies].

Music: Pre 20th century composers, Kate Bush, ABBA, The Beatles, Enya, Evanescence

Computer games:
Role playing games, shoot-em-ups, real time strategy, and platformers
The six things I could never do without
My close and extended family

Libraries, because books are expensive, and storage space scarce. Books/magazines/comics: still my primary form of entertainment. [I would happily pay a yearly subscription to belong to a vast online library from which I could read a given number of books a month.]

My job: because most of I need or enjoy has a price tag. [A sense of accomplish in completing a task as well as I possibly can doesn't hurt either.]

Solitude

My computer and its associated LTE internet connection.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether I am misrepresenting myself in any given situation at any given time.

To what degree my thoughts and ideas are inconsistent with reality.

Whether a given activity is worth pursuing, and when I should call it quits.

The disjuncture between the expectations that some people have of me and my own experience. I had unrealistic goals and pushed myself too hard at at school. I did reasonably well there through sheer hard work and memorisation, though I struggled with subjects like Maths. Throughout this time, I felt like an impostor, and believed that it was only a matter of time before my "luck" ran out. Some people anticipated that I would eventually graduate from university. I did not. I hope that they have accepted, or will come to accept, that I am not as smart and ambitious as they may have thought.

I have been told that I have a tendency to overthink.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hmmmm....other than stay up later than I would on a work night, I wouldn't say that I do anything that I wouldn't on any other day of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't feel as comfortable among women as I do among men.
You should message me if
You want to.
