My self-summary
I'm a caring little nerd who's cheerful and always ready for a laugh. I'm relatively shy unless I happen to be in the right mood and I've been cursed with the Finnish habit of not saying too much unless it's worth saying. I rarely take initiative with new relationships but I tend to open up once people get to know me. I'm honest to a fault.

Since I was little I've had a serious dislike for drunken people, smoking and loud noises, and as a result hated every moment of the evening whenever someone dragged me to a disco/bar/pub. An unfortunate side effect: I'm not into dancing. Instead, I enjoy calmer and cozier activities with my friends, like hanging out at home or at a cafe, playing a game, or going to the movies. Or watching my friends' faces as the latest twist of my role-playing adventure plot dawns on them. :P

I'm a laid-back guy who's easy to get along with. I'm usually practical and logical, but I've been given pause lately because of events relating to a dream I had about ten years ago, which has caused me to take the occasional leap of faith (with positive results so far!). I'm pretty tolerant of other people's habits & faiths, and I hate unfairness and injustice.

I'm here for friends, some nice chats, the annoyingly addictive tests and questions, and the remote chance of finding someone REALLY nice! ;P
What I’m doing with my life
I recently turned my life to a new direction when I abandoned my studies in software engineering, and am planning on studying psychology. Since I failed entry on my first attempt I've started on mathematics instead in order to begin taking courses on the side.

I spend much of my free time on role-playing games with my friends, as well as board games and mahjong. I also play with the computer (PC & PS3). I've also set a goal to once again improve my physique and health and have taken up jogging (and hopefully soon going to the gym). I've also practiced raja yoga for several years now and I've played golf for a year.
I’m really good at
remembering details of every darn game I've ever completed! I guess I'm also pretty good at explaining things so people understand them.
The first things people usually notice about me
Who knows? The strangest things, most likely! My ex says the first thing she noticed were my "chin butt cheeks". Just goes to say that you never know! ;)

On second thought, people usually just don't notice me! I often get the feeling like I'm just obfuscated in plain sight, where I have to poke my friends to make them notice I'm even in the room! :D

Six things I could never do without
1) Hugs & cuddling - Whenever I don't have anyone, I use a huge pillow. No, it's does NOT have cute imagery on it! It's just a pillow. Also see 4).

2) Friends - I think too much sometimes, and without people to tangle my emotions on I'd go nuts. (Mmm, Snickers...)

3) Games - Relaxing and mind challenging, and even nice socially sometimes!

4) Peaceful natural environments - Yes, I hug trees sometimes! They feel nice.

5) Free time - Because I'm just too brilliant at coming up with things to do for myself! Even with the time I have I can't do nearly all I want. I'd prefer being able to split into copies. Preferably at least 25 copies so I could solo raid in WoW. Actually, that might mean I'll start playing again so maybe not. :P

6) The biological essentials (no way I'm letting them take up more than one slot here!!! Wait, I shouldn't even have spent this slot! *D'oh!*)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Games (duh!) :P
-Dropping those few extra kilos I've gained and getting back into ripped shape
-Whether or not the dream I saw 10 years ago is coming true
-How I could get myself to learn how to cook tasty vegetarian dishes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out role-playing with friends, at the cinema, or at home watching TV or playing some game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I strive for the seemingly impossible, and lately it seems I might pull such stuff off!
You should message me if feel like asking a question or just saying something! I'm up for chatting whenever I happen to be online, and I don't mind just talking about some random stuff. Feel free to hit me with "wut did you mean with that thing in your profile?" or "lol you scored X in test Y!". I don't bite! ^,,^

Ah! I know you were thinking of writing just now. No changing your mind. Out with it!
The two of us
