I've been alive for more than twenty-five years now and still don't quite know myself, exactly. I recognize my likes and dislikes, of course, but deeper and more fundamental questions still elude me. Am I a good person? Have I done good things? Has my life made a difference? It's really impossible for me to say when I look at the entirety of my existence.
I do know that I am someone who approaches life with a logical, rationalist perspective in many cases. Some have told me this is a positive thing, and others think I live in the realm of boring reality for longer than is healthy. I have a sardonic (sometimes mean-spirited) sense of humour (that is nonetheless fun-loving in nature) and I tend to be a cynic.
I don't know if any of this pap really DESCRIBES who I am. I firmly believe that meeting and speaking to someone will always dwarf any self-written "biography", but that is just my perspective. In any case, I'm always up for a good conversation.
I balance this with a healthy amount of staring at my computer screen and being horrible at video games.
As well, I do a little blog-writing in my spare time. If you have a few minutes and are interested in bleeding from your eyes, please check it out:
I'm also a very talented actor. I have about 20+ years of experience successfully convincing my friends that I am interested when they talk to me about their problems.
Oh, and that I don't drink, I guess. Not even a little bit. I love hanging out with my friends at bars and whatnot, and I certainly do not begrudge people who do drink. It just isn't very fun for me, and thus I don't engage in it. This has some downsides, though, as the drunkenly stupid behaviour of other people is something I have significantly less tolerance for given my own non-inebriated nature. Then, it becomes almost circular: maybe I am the one who has the problem when it comes to drinking (i.e. not drinking is the problem). I actually briefly considered that once.
And then burst out laughing.
Movies: The Godfather (parts I and II), Blood Diamond, Gattaca, The Departed, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Old School.
Food: Chicken wings, well-made spaghetti, steaks, McDonald's (I never said I had taste, just that I am honest).

No, sorry, that was a joke. It's such a banal and cliched question, when you really look at it. I like thinking about problems, problem solving and how to approach different dilemmas with unique solutions. I know it sounds silly and fake, but I love thinking about creative problem solving and shit like that.
