My self-summary
I am kinda nerdy, or geeky - it depends on how the word is being defined at the moment. I like to knit, crochet, and draw, and write.

I like video games so much that I'm got a degree in game design. However, I'm starting to look into pursuing a Master's in Astronomy.

I'm a trans man. I love to read. I'm learning Japanese right now. I have an interest in travel, and hope to do so a lot once I'm out of college. I love food, despite being picky. I love sudoku, too. I am also addicted to udon and pho - noodle/soup dishes are favorites of mine.

I am an endless barrel of exposition.

I am creative, intellectual, and random
What I’m doing with my life
Reading. Trying to get better at Japanese, though that's going slowly. Finished college, and am now at a pretty cool internship.
I’m really good at
Picking up language (even if it doesn't necessarily stick), drawing, making elaborate plans (even if they don't come to fruition). Talking to people? Telling stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
People keep mentioning that my eyes are really intense...

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: So many. Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, American Gods, True Grit, J.R.R. Tolkein's The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, books on mythology, Harry Potter, Lynn Flewelling's The Nightrunner Series, The His Dark Materials trilogy, The Bone Doll's Twin, A Scanner Darkly, Stephen King, Frankenstein, anything by Poe, A Song of Ice and Fire, and I'm starting to get into Sherlock Holmes. I just recently read my very first H.P. Lovecraft story ("At the Mountains of Madness", if anyone was curious).

Movies: CULT FILMS. Resident Evil, Hellboy, Tim Burton films, Polyester, Revolutionary Girl Utena, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Tropic Thunder, Tron, South Park Bigger, Longer and Uncut, The Departed, Iron Man, the ORIGINAL three Star Wars films. Not the new ones. The new ones sucked. The Dark Crystal, Iron Man. I just realized I put Iron Man twice. Oops? (IronMan.) True Grit, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, UHF, Perfect Blue, Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb, True Grit, The Mask, Dredd. How did I go for so long without Rocky Horror Picture Show on here? Rocky Horror Picture Show. Blues Brothers. Dredd.

(...Iron Man.)

Music: Anything that sounds good to me. Rammstein, Dir en Grey, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, showtunes, MCR, the Beatles, Ludo, hide, Caravan Palace, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, various classical music, and lots of other random things that don't seem to quite fit in with each other. The Neverhood soundtrack. Danny Elfman. "Weird" Al Yankovic, Susumu Hirasawa, Akira Yamaoka. Vocaloid, especially the Kagamine twins and VY2(3?). Various video game soundtracks. I also like Steam Powered Giraffe's music.

Food: Miso soup, pizza, pasta, noodles, udon, pho, potatoes, beef stew, and rice. I like shawarma a lot. It reminds me a lot of falafel (another thing I love), except I'm not allergic to it (I'm allergic to chickpeas).

Games: Because games are important to me. Phantasy Star IV, The Neverhood, Kingdom Hearts I,II, CoM and Re:CoM, Resident Evil 4, Wild Arms 2nd Ignition, Sonic 2, Super Smash Brothers Brawl, Heroes of Might and Magic series. Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and Master Quest, The Lion King for the Genesis, Persona 4, Portal. Was addicted to Left 4 Dead 2 for a while, and still play it periodically. Dragon Age, Final Fantasy IV. ...There are a lot of 4's in this section. I also periodically become addicted to Minecraft. I just finished Papers, Please and Thomas Was Alone, and am currently playing Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Persona 3, and Gravity Rush.

Comics: The Sandman (by Gaiman), Teen Titans, American Virgin, Hellboy, Marvel 1602, Watchmen, Young Avengers, Secret Six, Arkham Asylum, Batman in general. I'm interested in The Spirit and the movie was hilarious (as well as GROSSLY inaccurate). Kevin Smith's Green Arrow. Hellsing, Wild Adapter, Drifters, Ouran High School Host Club, Bus Gamer, Zatanna, Banana Fish, Secret Six, Booster Gold and Deadpool. 52. 閉ざされたネルガル. Amatsuki. Out of the DCnU, Demon Knights, Aquaman and Justice League International. All of which have since been cancelled.

Other: Homestuck.
Six things I could never do without
1. Computer (laptop, preferably) with internet.
2. Sketchbook.
3. Some sort of bag to carry these things in.
4. A library full of books.
5. Companionship.
6. Video games.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How as we evolve, we lose traits that were once so inherent to who we were, and what a loss it is that those traits are slowly fading, and curiosity about what may evolve to replace them. Why we don't have tails anymore, despite being off-balance. Why cookies taste so good in milk, and oreo cookies taste *better* with milk. How awesome it would be to have certain super powers. What sort of daemon all my friends would have, and anything else that comes to mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a female-to-male transgendered individual, which while not really private, is also private at the same time...if that makes any sense. I'd rather be upfront about that, though.
You should message me if
You think I sound cool (which I probably don't), or at the very least if I sound interesting.

You can tell me who the director of "Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas" is.

Also, if you're up for adventuring or want to practice Japanese. =D Yay, adventuring! Yay Japanese!

If you like to cosplay and want someone to cosplay with.
The two of us
