I'm a programmer. At my finger tips I have the power to traverse linked lists and create clickable message boxes.
Getting better at cooking is something I've been working on and I find the experimentation involved to be exciting. Writing short stories is an occasional side hobby of mine. I'm fascinated by the science behind things and learning about the the why's and how's of the universe. I'm starting to get into fitness. I like to read and listen to music and watch movies and play board games other things normal people like to do.
Finally, hilariously bad sci-fi movies are the greatest gift given to man.
And then it crashes and I'm sad.
I spent three years doing contract work with Microsoft and now I'm at Amazon. Go figure.
I've been working pretty hard at getting fit. It's been a long road and will continue to be one, but I'm getting there. Spent a good chunk of my life being really unhealthy, but I've realized that was stupid and I'm working on fixing that. So I pick up heavy things. Then I put them back down. It's very exciting.
Having awesome debates about video games and their surrounding industry.
Losing my car keys even though I was just holding them.
Making people laugh.
Playing devil's advocate. I truly enjoy having a good discussion.
The Warlord Chronicles, Shogun, Malazan Book of the Fallen, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Gates of Fire.
I tend to flop between fantasy/sci-fi and historical fiction. I like things that are character driven. So give me a nice cast of characters and I'm all set.
Oh this is hard, so here's a random selection of the movies I've rated well on Netflix:
Dr. Horrible, Ip Man, anything Pixar, My Name is Bruce, Zombieland.
I can probably spend the next year filling this out. I like a good movie. And I know that is an easy answer. But wait! I also like a bad movie. Seriously, have you seen Sharktopus? Its a shark combined with an octopus. How is that not awesome?
Doctor Who, Firefly, Arrested Development, Community, Futurama, The Walking Dead.
Why does everything I like get canceled?
Rock, metal, punk, classical, bitchin video game remixes. Honestly anything with a solid melody that I can hum along to I'll listen to it.
Things that are delicious. Spicy food. Thai, Italian, Portuguese. I've started cooking for myself, so I like to throw spices at things and hope it comes out tasty.
Also buffalo wings are my weakness.
Turtle, my cat. He's so soft and fuzzy!
Hugs. They're fucking awesome.
Learning. I couldn't live without discovering something new each and everyday.
Flailing. Its the secret solution to all of life's problems.
A calculator because I can't count.
I have an ever growing list of things one should and shouldn't when in a horror movie situation. Don't read from the book. Especially if its written in Latin. Double especially if its covered in blood and bound with human skin.
Writing. Or the things I'd like to write if I wasn't busy not writing. Even more specifically, I think a lot about the setting of the things I'd like to write. The reason I haven't sat down and written these ideas is because I'm way more interested in building the world - the people, the places, the myths and legends, the history and culture - than I am in writing a narrative. Somewhere in my head floats three fairly realized story ideas that I strive to one day have on some paper.
I think a lot about varying hobby programming projects. Things like what they are, what I want from them, how I'll implement them, what sort of challenges I'll face. Most of my projects are games or game related, so I draw a lot of inspiration from the video games I play. I like to think about what features I think I could improve or what new idea could really work.
The stegosaurus that fights the T-Rex in Fantasia is a champion and doesn't get the respect he deserves.
More often than not though I am out with friends, sometimes a bar, sometimes going on an adventure in Kirkland but always fun times.
Millipedes are terrifying.
Sometimes I look at answers I've given on questions and go "the fuuuuuck?"
What's your favorite dinosaur?
Because why not.
