My self-summary
I am fascinated by the human mind in several ways - how it reacts to other minds, how it handles the world around it, and how unique and similar different minds can be from one another.

My second love is technology, and finding new ways to incorporate it into my life in order to better serve me. That usually means a lot of tinkering and learning, but discovering something new is always a great experience.

Games of any kind always manage to interest me. I have a strong bias towards games of skill and strategy instead of luck - I enjoy pitting my brainpower against others, even when I lose horribly. I'm horrible at chess, but I absolutely love playing it.
What I’m doing with my life
During the day, I work a 9-5 desk job as a professional bean counter. At night, I run a eSports organization dedicated to running and streaming professional fighting video game tournaments.
I’m really good at
tinkering with computers
I love tinkering and trying to improve something that exists, and computers are the best way to go about doing this.

making friends
I think I'm pretty good with people - I do well in social situations, and so I love expanding my circle and meeting people that add new perspectives to my life.

hugs
I'm a very tactile-based person - I love hugs, anytime, anywhere! :D

learning
I'm a passionate learner - taking in new information can be fascinating and enlightening.

seeing both sides
ALL stories have two sides, whether you like both sides or not. 9/11? Has two sides. Your ex-boyfriend leaving you for a younger, cuter girl? Has two sides. Don't dismiss anything, or remain ignorant (and unhappy) forever.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm loud. My voice travels pretty far and I project well, so there are many times where I am unwillingly the center of attention.

I'm always smiling. While there are certainly times to be upset or angry, I try to follow the philosophy that every moment is literally precious, and we should try to enjoy all of them.

I'm effeminate. I ignore gender roles. I like what I like, and if that makes me "gay" then that's fine - I don't need people who pass judgment like that in my life.

I don't judge. All stories have multiple sides - unless you know them, you don't have a right to pass judgment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Novel: Fight Club combines two things I love: sparring and minimalism. Chuck Palahniuk is my favorite author.

Film: Lilo and Stitch is just a sweet yet deep movie, Scott Pilgrim vs the World makes me giggle and tickles my nerd nerve, and A Walk to Remember is just a great story, arguably better then the book.

Shows: Right now, I'm only watching Survivor (ultimate game of strategy). Past favorites include gLee (I have a thing for singing), Code Geass (lots of suspense, kept me thinking), Avatar: the Last Airbender/The Legend of Korra (martial arts masterpieces).

Music: My favorite band is Gym Class Heroes, but you'd have to look pretty hard to find music that I wouldn't like. My favorite album of all time is Green Day's American Idiot.

Food: I prefer savory food - sweets aren't bad, but I generally don't gravitate towards them. My favorite food is a po-tae-to. I enjoy boiling, mashing, and then inserting them into a stew.
The six things I could never do without
computer.
hugs.
internet connection.
a sense of humor.
glasses.
logic.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how humanity got to this point. we are some incredible creatures. how will we continue to evolve and grow? What will human society be like in 20 years? 100?
On a typical Friday night I am
sitting with a group of friends, playing games (board or video), laughing about our lives and enjoying a nice, home-cooked, meal.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a deep, paralyzing fear of regret.
