My self-summary
I like, in no particular order: cooking, computers, musical theater, math, xkcd, folk music, hanging lights, YA fantasy novels, poetry, Richard III, Tony Stark's robots. Also lots of other things.

I love to travel whenever I can get time and money off school/work. I do and enjoy a lot of things -- my work is in Computer Systems, but my main hobbies right now are language classes and baking. I also read voraciously, and like taking long ambling walks through parts of the city that are new to me. I'm up for trying pretty much anything at least once.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, socializing, writing, reading, daydreaming, dancing, trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up.
I’m really good at
talking about anything.

The six things I could never do without
Books, a kitchen, friends, tea, travel, interesting conversations.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People, society, over-analyzing basically any media I come in contact with, the physics of science fiction
On a typical Friday night I am
...filling out my OKCupid profile, apparently. More seriously, sometimes reading a book, sometimes hanging out with my friends, sometimes stage managing a show, sometimes throwing cocktail parties. I am kind of bad at "typical Friday nights," I guess.
You should message me if
...you work in community theater and want a stage manager, electrician, or carpenter -- I miss the theater!

...you want a language partner -- I speak Japanese, I'm learning Korean, and I would like to brush up on my French or learn Tlingit or Inuktitut.

...you think I sound like someone you wanted to hang out with. (I should hope this is obvious!)

I like to talk! Message away!
