What I’m doing with my life
Working and living in a tiny, messy apartment.

I work for the State of California. It's boring, but my coworkers are great and the pay's not bad. On Saturdays I work retail, and that's a bit more fun.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to be less of an ascetic homebody, and enjoy myself. (That's one reason I'm on OkCupid.)

I've been volunteering at the Sacramento Bicycle Kitchen, and it's a lot of fun. The SBK is a non-profit, volunteer-run bicycle repair shop where people can get help to fix, maintain, and even build bicycles.

I'm also making a little effort to learn some enjoyable skills with which to stop evil, help people, and make the world happier. For instance, I don't know if there are any anti-evil applications for knitting, amateur radio, or C++, but they have piqued my interest and I intend to find out.
I’m really good at
I enjoy calligraphy, and I'm pretty good at it. And I'm quite mechanically inclined, because my mom taught me carpentry and woodworking when I was only six years old.
The first things people usually notice about me
My deep voice. I'm very often told that I have a great voice for radio. And my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books: Right now, I'm working my way through The Wheel of Time, and it's very romantic in some parts.

A few others that I also like are The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, and the Time Quartet by Madeline L'Engle.

Favorite food: Thai iced tea

Favorite music: classical music (especially Tchaikovsky), Celtic music, power metal

Favorite TV shows: Stargate SG-1. This show is amazing for a few reasons, but for one thing the characters work together so well, and none of them overshadow each other. When there's a comedic episode, it's usually very funny. And I really can't avoid mentioning the utterly awesome premise: the U.S. Air Force fights ancient, evil gods.

South Park is pretty funny too, as is Adventure Time.

Favorite movies: August Rush. The Mummy series (Jerry Goldsmith was absolutely a magician of a composer). Ladyhawke. The Sum of All Fears. The Brave One. Hanna. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.

That's just off the top of my head, though.
The six things I could never do without
My bicycle, my pen, tea, my computer, my umbrella, print books, and audiobooks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to just do things even if I'm afraid. Nature, Wicca and the Gods, how machines work, sustainable living, adventures, D&D and other roleplaying games.
On a typical Friday night I am
Staying up way too late. Drinking a lot of tea. Playing Minecraft.
