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

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 a woman who is honest, open, accepting, a feminist, 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 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, 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: Foreign reality TV shows you've never heard of, Stephen Universe, Colbert, any crappy TV show I can have on in the background while I'm doing other stuff.
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.
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.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm deeply insecure/frustrated with online dating. It feels way to much like a job interview, and this profile is like my poorly written resume, that I'm forever trying to get to some form of better (whatever that is). I hate almost all the words that I write here not because they are or aren't true, but because they feel ingenuine (even if they aren't).

Also, and this may be apparent if we message back and forth, I'm not particularly great with messages, with a tendency to take things slower than I should. I'm much better face to face (Or at least, I feel like being face to face is a more honest presentation of myself).
