My self-summary
Time to update this old thing. Hurrrrrrrrrrrhere we go.

I spend a lot of time thinking. I hate dancing unless I'm by myself. I thoroughly enjoy figuring out how things work. I need to be alone in order to recharge. I dont mind spending the evening in. I think that people should always do their best to acknowledge the truth when they find it. I appreciate people who are genuine. Honesty is a pretty swell thing. Capacity for self reflection is incredibly important to me. I find video games to be fascinating as a creative medium. I think that if art needs to be labeled as art in order to justify itself, it probably isnt worthwhile.

I have had a lot of help getting to where I am, and I am grateful for it.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for an affordable housing non-profit part time, and write music for video games on the side.
I’m really good at
Remembering things that nobody else does, obsessing over where I have seen that actor before, figuring out how to get things to work, procrastinating, lamenting the fact that I dont read more books, playing video games, and talking to myself on long drives.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the hair at this point.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm really just the worst at coming up with lists of favorites. I dont tend to enjoy watching the same thing again once I have seen it once unless it has been a long time. I'm going to try anyway, okay?

Movies: I DONT KNOW OKAY? Sorry I didnt mean to get upset.

TV shows: Firefly and The Last Airbender is a good start. I'll get around to starting Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones soon. Promise.

Food: I'm not too picky. If I have my pick, I tend to enjoy Sushi and Thai more than anything else.

Books: Harry Potter. Yes, that is first on my list. I have a lot of respect for what JK Rowling managed to do. I also dont like the last 2 installments very much. Oh well! The other book that stands out to me is Catcher in the Rye, which I picked up in 2006 or so because I was like "hey remember that book I didnt actually read in high school?" and it ended up leaving quite an impression on me.
The six things I could never do without
1) Technology. I'm not going to pretend anymore. When the power is out, I go through several stages of "why dont I..." only to find my new course of action is also out of commission.

2) Humans. I can spend a lot of time by myself, but I tend to be happier with healthy doses of good humans. I mean, people can be pretty swell.

3) Video games. I'd be pretty screwed without them.

4) Music. Also kind of a necessity for my path in life.

5) I kind of suck at this. My last list stopped after 4 as well.

6) Not this time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Reasons for an utter lack of decent communication between members of the human race, how to solve the world's problems, lack of foresight, experiences and paths that make us into who we are, and... music. I think about music a lot. And not just music itself. Things like why we have to weigh music down with all these other connotations and define who we are with certain types of music and reject music we like because we're afraid of what other people would think. Also why this seems to force the classical music institution/community to have its collective head up its collective ass.

I also am probably constantly thinking about the ways that society determines the way people interact and I think that's weird. I also think about things like what makes people into who they are and how I believe a lot of it is about choice and desire rather than about inherent traits... at least more than people would want to admit. Not too sure about that one anymore though.

I think about a lot of things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Inside or out. Sometimes I am cooking, sometimes I am watching a movie with my roommates, sometimes I am hanging all by my cool self and enjoying it. Sometimes I am out at a place with people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dont know that there's anything private enough to be worth "admitting" that I'd actually put here. I can think of plenty of relevant private things, but... they're not going here. I'll work on that.
You should message me if
I spark interest. If you want to get to know me, if you think we'd enjoy each other's company, by all means send a message. I'm probably not going to do it first if I'm being honest.

I'm definitely an introvert, so while I enjoy being around other people, I need time alone to recharge.
