My self-summary
I have been known to:

• play a wide variety of instruments;
• write and speak in ancient languages;
• cook crazy and delicious things;
• make chai tea from scratch;
• think about things;
• make jokes and be punny
• work on some project related to my hobbies/interests

Myers, Briggs, and Keirsey defined me as an INFP; I think it is a fairly accurate representation of my personality in general
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished my degree in Computer Science, just moved here to GR. Working as a Software Deveoper.
I would like to get my PhD in Philosophy (eventually). You will often find me sitting in coffee shops coding, reading, etc.
I’m really good at
• Playing my instruments;
• knowing random tidbits of information;
• doing things in the most roundabout way;
• philosophising;
• thinking abstractly
• ending sentences in semicolons; (thanks ALGOL)
• giving advice
The first things people usually notice about me
• I have a really dry and fairly surreal sense of humor;
• I often ramble on about random things;
• you will often hear me say,"did you know?"

I love getting suggestions for new music so if you know of any good musicians I would love to hear about them.
My favorite musical artist is Devin Townsend.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Modularis formas et elliptico curvas! Infinita ignis revolvatur circa infinita parallelarum; fractum infinitae realitatem, singulorum submissus, labentem in infinito rota. Dic mihi veritatem naturae mei realitatem!
On a typical Friday night I am
Ether doing something with friends, practicing my guitar/other instruments, composing music, exploring, working on some sort of project, or playing games
