A few things more or less dominate my life: literature (reading and writing), language (and the study thereof), gaming (video games and tabletops), and mountaineering (mountain climbing, rock climbing, etc.)
I'm wired funny and what some might call weird or different, but I don't care, I like it that way. They say I was raised by feral cats. There may be a modicum of truth to that.
I'm working on finding one, at least one for the next few years. I've wandered aimlessly for too long and it's grown tiresome, so I'm looking for something to do with my life.
The only sure goal I have at the moment is I would like to join the SBSAR (Santa Barbara Search And Rescue) Team at some point in the next few years and so I am in the process of getting both physically and mentally fit to try out.
I'm, what a professor once called, a "linguistic savant". I can learn languages incredibly fast, take them apart, and understand their inner workings.
In addition I'm an OK artist, rock climber, juggler, archer, acrobat, swordsman, and web designer.
When people do take notice of me the main things I've heard people comment on are either the intensity of the blue in my eyes or how long and/or soft my hair is.
