My self-summary
Oh boy, my summary! Time to show everybody how witty and sardonic I am, and use as many ten-dollar words and half-baked philosophical platitudes as possible. (is it just me, or are we all kind of getting that vibe?)

Slightly neurotic/usually have a commentary going on in my head about whatever's happening around me. I used to make that commentary audible until I heard 'FUCK man, we get it, you're SOOoooOoo much smarter than everyone else. Shut up, already' from people. So i've tempered at OCD urge a bit since then, as to not come off like an arrogant, mouthy, prick.

I'm a total champion for the bullied, have no superiority complex whatsoever and live by 1 rule: Be kind and treat everyone equal. (I sound like a corny bumper-sticker, but it's true.)
What I’m doing with my life
I renovate and flip homes for a living. Right now I'm renovating my house on Hilton Head Island, SC. What I do barely feels like work. (unless I miss out on a house that sold that morning, in which case I'm banging my head against the coffee table.)
I’m really good at
It always feels gross and narcissistic to list off what I'm 'good at'.. it feels like the first class of the first day of high school.. Like one of those forced, 'get to know each other' games that the teacher would instigate.

(but playing piano)
The first things people usually notice about me
I talk a lot. Pretty uninhibited. But I'm a good listener, too. (When sober. 4 beers in, I'm probably talking over people.)

And I'm often told I smell good. So, that.

The six things I could never do without
I could do without 'em.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All kinds of existential bullshit that I'm probably wasting my time on, but in all honesty it's my favorite pastime. I love having deep philosophical conversations where unique ideas are shared about societal trends, what the point of life is (It's to be happy. There-- I just saved you the trouble. You can put down your 1100 page high-brow book now, because Tolstoy doesn't know shit about your 2016 life), etc.

(Note: these philosophical conversations seemed more frequent back in my days of getting stoned, but I've sort of moved on from that phase of my life. Also, I'm not sure gushing about 'Dark Side of the Moon', and having all the ubiquitous thoughts it provokes are as interesting as I felt they were as a teenager, after doing 6 bong rips.. 'WTF is TIME, anyway? And MONEY?! Why IS it US and THEM..? WAIT DUDE, SHUT UP ECLIPSE IS ABOUT TO COME ON.')

Also paying taxes, not having math skills and having to call my brother, and more banal 'I'm a grown-up' boring shit like that..
On a typical Friday night I am
partying with millionaires in my limousine's jacuzzi.

...

who has typical friday nights? a contrived friday night when you're single and in your 20's sounds like a painfully boring way to live.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was like 12, I once selectively threw rocks at the lit-up sign for 'Bally Total Fitness', so that it just read 'BALL S'. (It was funny at the time.)
