I'm really bad at these things. I'm trying to be more social and to put myself out there a bit more, but I don't really know how to go about it. So, here we are again.
Trying to think of things to say here...let's see, I like computers, music, math, Norse mythology, anything Tolkien-related. I'm trying to lose weight. I want to learn how to work on cars.
In the hopefully near future I'd like to go to grad school. My goal is to get a Ph.D. in Mathematics.
Overall: I'm just trying to find my way...
Other stuff...I play Lord of the Rings Online occasionally; I'm a Redditor; I'm a metalhead (I especially love folk and Viking metal, heavy metal, thrash, black, death, etc.) and I love classic rock, Jpop/Jrock, Celtic and medieval music, even a bit of bluegrass and classical; I want to learn how to play D&D; I want to learn how to work on cars; I'm obsessed with Digimon; still love Pokemon and am looking forward to the new games; etc.
And, despite my appearance, I've found that fewer things are as therapeutic as an excellent workout.

Favorite foods? Well, I love Italian food, that's for sure. And chocolate (duh). But I have a motto about food: I'll try anything TWICE. :) [Ok, I've had to revise my motto: I'll try damn near anything twice. Fried mushrooms dipped in a horseradish sauce ruined it. Never again.]
