My self-summary
I have the traits of both a kid and a cranky old man. It is endearing, I assure you.

I don't like loud noises and prefer not to stay up extremely late nor drink to excess.

I am slender but relatively fit.

My hair was disappearing, so I finished the job.

I catch mistakes for a living.

I appreciate proper grammar.

I exhibit all traits of a classic introvert.

I am on time or early most of the time.
What I’m doing with my life
My profession is to help coders improve their code by finding bugs. A glorified exterminator, except I just find them and let other people kill (fix) them.

I'm currently gearing up for my second Chicago Marathon.

Lately, I've been spending most of my free time tinkering around with my 3D printer, watching science-y videos on YouTube, and creating interesting stimuli for my cat.
I’m really good at
Observational skills.

Fixing your computer.

Unawkward silences.

Listening to several conversations at once while reading my book.

Word play.
(Message me if you want a Words with Friends buddy!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm generally quiet and possibly come off as aloof.
It's not intentional; it's just that introversion thing.

I also tend to be very subtle in my sarcasm (playful, not mean).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

[reserved spot for item #6 here]
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If my brain was removed from my body yet was provided with all of the sensory inputs it expected, would I notice?
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, relaxing, recharging.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have an Instagram account, but my cat does.
She enjoys applying filters to photos of her dinner.
