My self-summary
Shameless Russo-, Anglo-, and bibliophile.
History buff. Hitting the gym hard. I want to be stronger; not prettier.
...I find validation through effort, so I work a lot, at a lot of different things. A life of ease ain't for me. I fly to Alaska to see Mom once every couple years, and it never fails to impress me. I belong where the mountains meet the sea.
What I’m doing with my life
Working and learning and playing music and writing.

Studying for an ABO certification that I don't need, but now I'm able to calculate the induced prism caused by a 5mm decentration in a +4.00 diopter lens. Which is the American Dream, right??

Wrong. But I'll be able to squeeze more money out of my employer, which is a damn sight closer to that Dream.
I’m really good at
Lots of shit.
For those who support the theory of multiple intelligence modalities, a quick personal rank:

3) Interpersonal
4) Musical
5) Kinesthetic
6) Mathematical
7) Spatial
8) Naturalistic

In short, I know when to use "who," or "whom," but I don't know which mushroom to eat, or how to get to the Kroger in Greenfield. Assuming there IS one.

Success
An audience
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Optics. Music. Conversations, future and past.
On a typical Friday night I am
According to the letter of the question; probably working.
As to the spirit of the question, the brass ring is drinking and debating a question of value.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I play my cards pretty close to my chest. Sorry, kids.
You should message me if
You can sit me down, shut me up, tell me five things I don't already know, and turn me on. I don't care what you look like, just have a spark.
