My self-summary
A thoughtful hippy nerd who loves the magicks of software, the natural world, and human contact of all kinds. I ramble a lot and smile a lot more than I used to.

Sense of humor is fluid, in the sense that it fills whatever container it's in, and also in the sense that when drained it becomes bone dry.

I've spent a lot of time walking around in the cold trying to make my hands warm up with sheer willpower.

I love intellectual discussion, but don't expect me to just regurgitate talking points - which may be an egotistical way of saying I'm not very well read, but I love a good meeting of the minds.
I don't just want to know what you think or believe -- I want to know why.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm young but life is short, so I kiss and party and play games and ponder philosophical divides.

And I change, a lot. At 27 I'm not who I was at 25, nor was I then what I was at 23. I like that about myself.
I’m really good at
Charming your socks off. Because I am a sock thief. I collect socks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
What is this question really for?

I had little access to popular arts (especially music) as a kid, and I've since made a good effort to catch up, so my tastes are much broader than they are deep. I'm happiest to think and talk about the feelings that come from art of any kind.

Currently...
Reading: Anathem (Neal Stephenson)
Watching: Stranger Things, Black Mirror
Listening: Mutter - Rammstein
Playing: Final Fantasy XV and a dozen horrible mobile games
The six things I could never do without
There's only one thing that matters: awareness.

Of self and of others; of feeling and of thought; of the knowledge that all awareness is perishable, and that all truth fades with time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The third option.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ignoring the question and answering "What do you do for fun besides consume mass media like everyone else?" instead:

-Climb mountains
-Cook
-Drive around with only a vague destination in mind and then get un-lost without using a smartphone
-Play DnD with friends
-Write fantasy worlds and struggle with plots
-Program Rogue-like 2d game engines
-Guitar, Piano, synth beats
You should message me if
You want to chat, learn more, or hang out :)

And also if none of the below bothers you, or if you have questions:

a) I am in a happy polyamorous relationship with a lovely lady. We have full knowledge of each other's "extracurriculars" :)

b) I have the potential to like or love girls and boys and those outside or between or above or below the spectrum. I'll either like you in a certain way or not, and care less about labels or categories.

c) I will be honest with you about what I want (or don't), and expect the same from you -- life is easier when we are who we are and let other people decide how they want to react to that!
