My self-summary

I love fiction. I love writing it and I love reading it. If I could do only one thing in my lifetime it would be to get my work published.

I like wearing silly hats and being a goof almost as much as I like serious conversation and tea.
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved to Portland from Vermont on the 16th of April. At the moment I am slowly learning my way around the city and trying to make some friends. I joined a group of informal Sunday night chess players a few weeks ago.

I recently started trying different cocktails. Prior to visiting Germany last spring and deciding that I really should try the beer I had avoided alcohol entirely so I am relatively knew to this.
I’m really good at
Learning. I love new things and if they interest me I tend to pick them up quickly.

Writing. My grammar isn't spotless yet (and maybe it never will be), but I have worked at it for years and I am proud of my prose.

Cooking. I like trying new recipes. I particularly like cooking shared meals and getting feedback.

Mechanical doctoring. When something breaks at work I tend to be the person people make a bee-line for.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am intelligent and genial.
In terms of physical traits, probably that I'm blond.

Food: Yes.
The six things I could never do without
1. Water - I would literally die.
2. Fiction - I would literaturally die.
3. Fun - What would even be the point?
4. Internet - My infinite font of information and resources.
5. Meat - Fair warning.
6. Friends - What isn't better with a friend?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The lives of people in worlds that exist entirely in my head.
Philosophy, human nature, and science.
How I can improve myself and the world around me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either writing or silently scolding myself for not writing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will probably never stop liking pokemon.
You should message me if
I am looking for someone who shares at least some of my interests, enjoys discussing crazy (and not so crazy) ideas, and thinks of life, at least in part, as an adventure: always with something new to explore.
