I'm William. I live in the hazy gray area between easily definable categories, so this self-description may at times seem unclear or even contradictory, but that's sort of who I am.
I crave adventure and knowledge in abundance. I aspire to be everything, a polymath, and to cram as much living into this one fleeting lifetime as possible. I think that the metric by which a life can be judged is how many good stories you have to tell on your deathbed.
For now, I'm a programmer/app developer, an audio engineer/musician, an aspiring novelist, and an indie game designer.
I'm absent-minded. I daydream gratuitously, and I sometimes do self-destructive things for the hell of it. I like parties.
I smile a lot.
I want a relationship that is passionate. I want love like wildfire and careening trains. I want to be a nuclear detonation in someone's heart.
... in a not crazy sort-of-way.
I'd like a partner who can be all at once reckless and hopeful and ambitious and silly and kind. All of those things. Someone who is an adult when they need to be, but hasn't forgotten how to smile.
Actually, what I'm looking for is a female-version of myself. Honestly, yes, this is probably due to some deep-seeded ego problems, but I'm willing to forgive us that :)
For the moment I live in this crazy little town near Topeka. It's actually a cult. It makes for an interesting social learning-experience, but the night life leaves much to be desired. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to moving on.
So it goes.
Let's see, I'd like to think I'm good at... writing, cheering people up, telling stories, finding beauty in things, spending too much time looking at myself in the mirror, trivia, falling in love, and making awkward situations more awkward by sheer force of will.
And being adorable, of course ^^
Wait, is noting that I'm charming and lovely to behold an acceptable answer here?

-The shock collar I have to wear for impure thoughts. *ZAP!* Ouch! *ZAP!* Seriously?
Where technology will lead.
Why are people?
Politics, I swing between being passionate and utterly jaded.
Whether I can rock this jacket or what?
And I talk to my cat. Like, too much...
*if you are crazy enough to think that dangerous things are fun, but not so crazy that you think magnets have healing properties.
*if you have disturbing yet oddly seductive dreams in which you are being cheered by millions of fanatical followers.
*you like to learn for the sake of learning,
*or if you wish to communicate with me using 26 glyph symbols and about eight punctuation marks. It's like magic!
