My self-summary
Ignore the username, it is my typical gaming handle. Doesn't quite seem appropriate for a website such as this but I chose it when I was much younger and not as bright.

I am Morgan, a software engineer who has been working since the end of 2012. I did a computer science honours degree at the University of Otago. If you want crude representations of my personality, I usually get INTJ in Myers–Briggs Type Indicator tests, and a Ravenclaw in HP sorting hat tests.

I am on this website to first and foremost make friends with people I think I might like to progress further with in future. If that doesn't happen then oh well, new friends are good. I feel strongly about communication and understanding, as well as equality and treating people like people regardless of who they are. The more I can be on the same wavelength as you and understand where you are coming from on things the better and as such I am notorious for asking too many questions or typing what people find to be an excessive amount.

I tend to be an observer in social situations, preferring to soak in what others have to say, however when I get to know someone more and am talking one on one I can get more talkative depending on the topic. If you really want to catch my attention talk to me about your opinions on time travel.

I spend most of my time indoors (typically on a computer of some sort) but I don't mind the occasional outing. I enjoy video games, but not to an excessive extent. I enjoy deep discussions on controversial or intellectually stimulating topics. I identify as a "Nerdfighter", a group of awesome nerds who fight world suck. I'd strongly recommend looking the vlogbrothers up if you haven't heard of them.

In more recent years have started going to the gym to build strength, and try to play laser tag when I have free time.
What I’m doing with my life
Working away developing software, while trying to keep my social life active and still have enough time to relax. A rather difficult balance to keep...
I’m really good at
Computers, maths, video games, laser tag, logic. Anything else I'll leave up to you to observe.
The first things people usually notice about me
Why don't you tell me? I suppose my height and general nerdy look, and the fact that I seem to not be too willing to speak much at first in person (at least, I assume).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: Spicy or seafood covers most of my main tastes. I am always keen to go eat out somewhere.

Books: The Old Kingdom Trilogy, Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl, Hunger Games (only the first book), John Green's Novels, 1984, Deltora Quest, Animorphs (Please note, some of these series I have not read since I was a kid and therefore my memory is very fragmented)

TV Shows: Doctor Who, BBC Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Movies: Inception, Memento, Donnie Darko, Sweeney Todd, The Butterfly Effect 1 & 3, Fight Club.

Music: Yuki Kajiura, Emilie Autumn, Shiina Ringo, Imogen Heap, Pure Reason Revolution, Porcelain and the Tramps, Aural Vampire, DJ Madson, Linkin Park, Ayabie, The Clockwork Quartet, Indica, Clannad Soundtrack, Jem, t.A.T.u., Muse, Nobuo Uematsu, Lacuna Coil, Nightwish, Theatre of Tragedy, Within Temptation, Evanescence, Tapping The Vein, Paramore, Utada Hikaru.
The six things I could never do without
Computer, Friends, Family, My Mind, potential for the future and food... glorious food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What could of been, what can be, and what might be...typically in the form of daydreams set in the past or nearby future.

I also think about purpose on this world, as well as absent mindedly doing strange analysis of sentence word length distributions. If you ask I will explain but doubt you'll find it interesting.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either on my computer relaxing, or visiting a friends flat/attending some form of flat party where a low to moderate amount of alcohol will be consumed by me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Privacy is an odd construct, and I cannot rank things in a reasonable order. I would rather admit things to those who ask, and I will answer any question that does not infringe on other peoples privacy, assuming I am interested in getting to know you.
You should message me if
If you wish to converse with someone who thinks as I do, if you wish to leave me some sort of compliment out of good will, or you live in the same city as me, and are interested in how I sound.

Or if you just feel absolutely random, in which case why the hell not, I just want a decent conversation at the very least.
