My self-summary
I'm pretty awesome and you should get to know me. Feel free to ask me anything at all and I promise to answer honestly, not that my promise here will matter if you don't already trust me. I'm more of a listener than a speaker. I like to make people happy. I'm better at writing about things or others than about myself. Places too. In high school I thought I was the only person like me, but after moving to a bigger place I learned I was wrong.

Someone asked what makes me awesome, so I'm adding my response here, and I'll probably add more later if I feel like it:

Here are a few things about me that make me awesome:

When I reached an age/maturity level where I really understood that life isn't fair, that was further incentive for me to be fair in all my doings, rather than an excuse to be unfair.

I try to be a good person.

I want a raccoon. I want to teach it to ride around on my shoulder and fetch things for me.

If I had access to the Force, I'd totally use it to fuck with people. Like if I were on the freeway and someone in front of me had a refrigerator in the back of their truck, I'd totally use the Force to move it out of their truck and set it on the side of the road.

I don't intentionally hurt people's feelings, no matter how much I may dislike them.

I genuinely like to read.

I'm polite; saying "please" or "thank you" are commonplace to me, instead of rarities.

I started working professionally when I was 16 (was forced to work at home for about 8 years before that) and have been regularly employed since then, other than a few brief periods between jobs.

Other people have often called me awesome more seriously than I refer to myself as awesome, however since this introduction is textual, the tone in my voice doesn't always carry through very well.
What I’m doing with my life
Working 40+ hours a week, spending time with my family and trying to sleep despite chronic insomnia.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at being awesome. Not just awesome, but the most awesome. You're missing out not knowing me.

Also, math.

And pretending my ego is larger than it is.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can't speak for other people, but when I see my reflection I'm like, "Who is that awesome dude?" then I'm like, "Oh, yeah, it's me. Badass." That badass is 3 syllables. The third is a nod. Sorta.

I'm a smartass.

But seriously, MacGyver. I'm pretty sure that makes me win.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything. I'm ridiculously smart.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't really have a typical Friday night, usually I head home from work and see what's up for that weekend. I like to party, but I don't do it often. Usually when I hang out with friends we end up playing board games or video games or cards, and having a great time. We also have a couple drinks or smoke a few bowls, but nobody really gets all liquored up too often.

I like this answer so I'm leaving it, but these days I work weekends so a typical Friday night finds me at work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
anything someone asks. I like making people happy, not bored.
You should message me if
This was already too long. It should say, "You should message me."
