My self-summary
I haven't a clue how to tell you who I am in a paragraph you'll want to read, so here are some decent schemas to attach me to:
I'm a pseudogeek. I can't fix your computer, but I can suggest a better program for you to use, or find the taskbar you lost. I love many forms of games, including cards, board games, and RPGs. I've even been known to paint miniatures.
I'm madly in love with theatre tech, but it isn't good for me, so I dumped it a few years back. We do see each other occasionally. In the meantime, I've been with psychology for three years now, and we have a pretty good relationship. It has been suggested that it will take another five years of school before I'll be able to properly diagnose my own mental diseases, but I've determined that I'm almost exactly as sane as is healthy.
I set a great store by creativity and individuality, and I sometimes see them where other people don't. I'm very selective in who I associate with, but highly devoted to the people I choose. I appreciate most forms of humor, but particularly wit and sarcasm.
I fancy myself something of an artist, but haven't found a single medium that quite works for me. So I'll dabble in poetry, playwriting, photography, dance... I'm even considering drawing.

a) The tattoo was temporary. I miss it terribly much.
b) OKCupid has learned to spell "witty"! I'm very proud of them.

I am warm, witty, and weird
What I’m doing with my life
I just started grad school, so trying to get a job/pull my life together/get grades/stay sane.

Long-term, I will probably shrink heads. By which I mean, be a therapist. Unless there happen to be some unused heads handy.
I’m really good at
Misapplication of psychological theories, sewing, giving hugs, confusing poor innocent passersby, over-analysis, organizing things, listening and learning.
I'm not necessarily all that good at music, but I indulge in it anyway.
I'm also good at dancing poorly.
The first things people usually notice about me
The madness that is my hair, that everything I'm wearing at the moment is black, or the fact that I'm inexplicably singing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a) Ender's Game, Sabriel, American Gods, Catch 22, Brave New World, 1984, Snow Crash, LotR, etc.
b) I don't see enough movies to have strong preferences, but I'm fond of V for Vendetta, Much Ado About Nothing, The Incredibles, and most recently, Some Like it Hot.
c) Dar Williams, Vienna Teng, Flogging Molly, Gipsy Kings, Leonard Cohen, Jonathan Coulton, Solas and lots'n'lots of Broadway shows.
d) Indian food, udon, and chocolate.
Six things I could never do without
Love (in the broadest sense), music, things to create, chocolate, hugs, and fiction.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How puzzles/machines/shapes/people/stitches fit together. The fact that I should be doing something more productive. Potential future worlds or sci-fi/fantasy universes. Personality analysis. Unintended meanings of words (for instance: Unwooable. In an older iteration of English, this would have meant that it was pointless to flirt with the person in question. On OKC, it just means that you actually have to talk to them if you want to tell them they're hot.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, singing, playing a board/card game, dancing, talking with people I love, stabbing people with duct tape daggers, gaming, or maybe even attending a party.

Well, actually, since I no longer live on a college campus, I'm more likely to spend my Friday evenings having dinner with my family, playing Civilization, or attending an event at the local game store.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I effectively don't keep secrets, at least on my own behalf. I usually take my desire to hide anything as a signal that I haven't dealt with it properly yet, and should discuss it for my own benefit.

Private? Well, I'm rather paranoid. I'm afraid of heights, spiders and the dark. Most people don't realize, though, because I don't much like allowing myself weaknesses.
You should message me if
Honestly, you probably shouldn't. I almost never log in, and usually only do so to play with personality tests or read the blog. Sorry!
The two of us
