Well, let's start with gamer. Playing games is often my activity of choice, and I'm good at it. Board games, card games, role-playing games, video games: you name it, I'll probably enjoy it. I detest head games, however.
I go through a pretty extreme dynamic range. I can be very quiet and laid back at times, and energetic and animated at others. Luckily, I'm at the extreme appropriate to where I am and whom I'm with more often than not.
I am free-spirited, strong-willed, and open
I got tired of waiting for the wind to shift and send me in a new direction, and decided to stir things up a bit. At the end of the summer I gave my landlord notice, then started looking for a new place to live and new employment. About a week later, a good friend mentioned they had a room opening up in their place. So I packed up and moved to the Boston area. After about two months of searching, I've located employment as well, and will be diving back into Software Engineering after a three year hiatus.
Outside of any time I spend earning the money to support my lifestyle (and learning new skills), I try to be constantly doing something I find rewarding in some way. For scheduled stuff, I'm in a weekly board game group, a vintage dance group, and a Renaissance dance class, which should leave me with two work nights and plenty of weekend time for more spontaneous activities. I hate it when I spend time watching TV or wandering around the Internet because I can't come up with anything better to do; doing so because I want to is a different matter. I try to learn to cook new foods regularly.
It seems like this section of my profile is getting changed every month or two right now, so check back. Change is still definitely in the air around me.
I've often been told that I'm a good listener, and experience has shown that I'm good at getting people to trust me and open up to me. I like to believe I am worthy of that trust.
(b) I really couldn't say for certain, although if the question were what movie I'd seen the most times, it would easily be "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".
(c) My favorite genre of music is filk (please, ask). My typical playlist contains a combination of filk, traditional folk, modern folk, and pop (largely 80s pop), with the occasional surprise of something orchestral, or TSO, or something else random. I really like songs which tell a story.
(d) My favorite cuisine is probably Indian, with Thai and Japanese coming closely behind.
