My self-summary
To be honest I kind of dance to a different tune when it comes to self-perspective. Human thought, though obviously useful, also has downsides... and it gets us into a lot of hot water when we try to apply it to the phenomenological... aka, our psyche, identity, and awareness. Our inner 'self' is ephemeral by nature, and will always slip through the fingers of mental analysis (which is itself a process contained in the former).

So yeah... I don't really like to try to define 'myself'. I just 'am' and I just 'be' and I don't try to put the 'round peg' in the 'square hole'.

Though I guess to a point all of this is reflective of a common thread in my life: bucking convention. I've always felt a strong resistance to doing what others tell me, thinking how they demand me to, or behaving how they expect. I've been that way since I was a child, but as an adult I can still see the wisdom of it - conventional wisdom is often very limited and limiting, and to my mind is actually the starting point of many or even most of the follies of the human race. But of course with age you also learn the value of occasional compromise ;).

Besides that I like my quiet time and my alone time, and generally find it easy to be happy in and of myself, especially if I have time to tinker away at my hobbies. I think it's key in life, or at least it is for me, to keep it simple. Few desires, few wishes, and a focus on accepting where you are and what you have, rather than pining for what you don't.
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly computer programming, but it's been a bit all over the place over the years. Studied to be a psychologist for a few years, and also studied philosophy for a stint, but programming was my 'first love' and has outlived the other interests.
