My self-summary
I love to travel and plan to do more of it in the next few years. I enjoy reading, writing (the beginnings of hundreds of books), and doing art. I watch far too many movies. I love being in/on the water - swimming, sailing, kayaking, etc. - though I very rarely actually get to water of any sort. I play tabletop role playing games. And I like to be entertained. (Juggling, magic, humorous interactions between people, etc.)

(Note: I only log into this site at most once a month.)
What I’m doing with my life
Editing. Spending a lot of time commuting. Writing a book. Playing with laser pointers and my cats. Indoor rock climbing. Teaching myself German and Korean.
I’m really good at
Finding humor in pretty much any situation.
Stealthily coming and going from my apartment so my roommates are never sure if I'm home or not. (This one is old, and honestly, in no way applicable, but I like the phrasing.)
Finding diverse ways to procrastinate.

Food: I love food. Many different kinds of foods. But I don't like tomatoes. I also have a somewhat serious aversion to cinnamon and liquorice.
On a typical Friday night I am
Writing a book, procrastinating on writing a book, playing around in Photoshop, creating fantasy setting maps.
More recently, doing those things, and then going to sleep absurdly early because I don't do it during the week when I actually need to get up the next morning.
You should message me if want to.

Please note that I'm happily seeing someone, so my participation with this site is mostly just to talk to people, especially since I moved an inconvenient distance from most of my established friends.
The two of us
