My self-summary
Yet another software developer, originally from Bellingham, I've been down here a about five or six years. I'm currently living on Capitol Hill, along with my cat.

I've managed to be overly independent/lonerish for too long, and I'm here, trying to do something about that.

I'm looking for someone who is honest, open, accepting, and is comfortable with who they are as a person.
What I’m doing with my life
Outside of work, I spend most of my free time either exercising, watching TV, reading, playing video games, or doing overly elaborate paper and pencil puzzles (which is about as close as I can get to some kind of fugue/meditative state).
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair. It's very curly, and unless it's been recently cut, it gets pretty puffy. At some point I just kind of gave up on trying to tame it, and so now I tend to let it do it's own thing. Odds are, the second thing that you'll notice is my paper folding habits. It's an OCD thing that everyone ends up asking me about at some point.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Blue Scholars, The Weakerthans, Why?, Polaris, The Dismemberment Plan, The Mountain Goats, The Pillows, Aesop Rock, Andrew Jackson Jihad, and probably a couple dozen more that don't immediately come to mind.

Books: Junji Ito, Minoru Furuya, Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, Jason Shiga, Osamu Tezuka.

Games: I just got some old systems set up, so I've been playing a lot of NES/SNES lately. In particular I'm replaying the Creation Of Heaven And Earth trilogy to see how well it holds up compared to my memories of it from when I was younger (Surprisingly well so far).

TV: The Genius, Crime Scene, Stephen Universe, Rick And Morty, Legion, Game Center CX.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Trying to reconcile my view of the world and my personal beliefs, given recent events.

The creative projects that are in the back of my head and seem interesting, but that I never seem to have time for.

Looking at the background of people's profile pictures, to see if I can figure out where they were taken. My best so far is identifying a bookstore that I used to go to when I lived in Bellingham. There wasn't really anything identifiable, but I had the bookshelves in the photo burned into my memory.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually with my board game group. Otherwise, out at a bar/barcade, or at home recovering from the week.
You should message me if
You feel like it. More importantly, I should probably point out that I tend to be on the shy side. If I've messaged you, it's probably with an overly small-talkish introductory message, if only because I usually too sheepish to be more direct. Truthfully, I would prefer meeting in person. There's a certain lack of context and intonation that I've never really gotten used to with sending messages.
