My self-summary
Update: I'm now seeing someone and am probably not going to be checking this site a lot.

About me:
I'm an engineer living in Pittsburgh. I like hanging out with friends, playing sports (volleyball, ultimate frisbee, rock climbing, softball), long meandering conversations and a fun night out at a bar. More recently have started to enjoy biking around the city for hours on end and having board game nights with friends.

More about me:
-I like bullet points more than prose
-I still spend more time thinking about what I would do with super powers than where I will be in 10 years
-I prefer meandering abstract or philosophical discussions to anything practical
-I try to do 1 thing each week that scares me
-I have around 40 tabs open at any given time, at least 10 of them wikipedia articles.
