My self-summary
I'm an enigma, and am indescribable.

Apparently not, though, since I succeeded in describing myself.

I attended college back East for three and a half years, but was unable to complete my major in four years and felt I needed a break before attempting the fifth year. I started out as an anthro major, but changed to a math major a little too late in the game to complete on time.

I have idiopathic hypersomnolence, which is code for 'a disorder like narcolepsy but not narcolepsy that we don't have a name for yet.' Unlike narcoleptics, I do not suffer from cataplexy (i.e. I do not suddenly fall on my face asleep), and I don't get rest/refreshment from naps during the day. Otherwise, the symptoms are similar.

I'm interested in many subjects and several artistic forms, but tend to dislike delving too deeply into the specifics of any one thing. I productively spend a lot of my non-working time playing videogames, although I do a number of other things as well. (I played World of Warcraft, but I quit two and half years ago.)

For a while, I spent time watching Rifftrax – I have quite a few still to see, although I've now seen almost all the shorts. I watch(ed) Mystery Science Theater, yes.

Unlike most people, I'm often more awkward online than in person, because things seem to have permanence in print, and I often obsessively correct things I write to the point that I sound stilted or my personality doesn't come across well. Part of my sense of honesty is connected with avoiding the untrue elements of generalized statements. This means I can end up listing exceptions to a point for longer than I'm making the point. In person, I generally don't overthink what I say and am more natural. Also, my sense of humor doesn't come across in written form well at all.

The best way to make me angry is either to be dishonest or to try to 'peer pressure' me into something I've stated I don't care to do.
What I’m doing with my life
I plan on eventually completing my mathematics degree, but haven't decided if I'll go back East to do it or finish it somewhere else. I recently left small town Montana after being isolated there for years and relocated to Colorado Springs. I am still adjusting to returning to life somewhere where things actually happen.
(To be honest, I created this account/profile years ago for the quizzes/tests, and am really only filling this out for the hell of it.)
I’m really good at
Noticing punctuation/grammar/spelling errors and feeling guilty that I can't help but twitch to correct them whether or not I can/should. If it's something that spell check would miss, that's cool . . . but really, 'currancy' is not a word, either for a system of money or for something imbued with currants.

In all seriousness, I'm great at conversation, hah. I like to work with computer graphics, and I'm pretty good at it – same with video editing. I'm good at math, science, other school-related nerdy things of that nature. I'm good at driving, no lie, and I'm good at videogames, to a degree. I'm relatively good at writing, and I do some of that as well. I'm good at things that involve either a) organization or b) abstract concepts. I'm really NOT good at being brief, though.

Oh, and taking quizzes. I'm great at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
No one has told me the first thing they noticed about me, so I can't really say. I would assume that it is some aspect of my appearance, since I probably haven't spoken yet, but I would also assume that what specific aspect is most noticeable would vary from person to person. Hmm, I suppose I've been told that 'I really am short' many times after meeting people – so perhaps my height.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books -- too many. I love to read, although the Internet has curbed the amount I do somewhat.

I specifically love The Lord of the Rings (J.R.R. Tolkien), The Last Unicorn (Peter S. Beagle), Out (Natsuno Kirino).

After that, it gets too nebulous and tricky to pick. I enjoy most genres except Westerns -- and I don't enjoy romance novels for the literary quality, which is generally abysmal.


Music --

My summary: I like what is broadly defined as 'rock' best, but I enjoy almost every type of music excluding country, emo, and anything that completely lacks a beat. I like music from several countries and from many different eras, although I listen to more modern music more than older music. I have never been good at understanding lyrics, even in American songs, so the lack of knowledge of the language a song is sung in doesn't bother me. Anyway, the Internet is here to help if I'm burning with curiosity about the meaning of a specific set of lyrics.


Movies -- once again, I have a large number of movies that I enjoy. It's easier to choose a few movies than books, although I often will over-watch a movie and find myself unable to watch it for long periods of time (here's looking at you, Fellowship and Return of the King). I'll try to list my favorites out of several genres:
Star Wars (Episodes IV, V, and VI), Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, (I also enjoy Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, a.k.a. "the whale movie"), Jurassic Park, The Princess Bride, E.T., Alien, Aliens, Blade Runner
The Haunting (original), The Shining, Rosemary's Baby, Dark Water (Japanese version)
Anne of Avonlea, The Last Unicorn
Serendipity, Pretty in Pink
Kill Bill (vol. 2 more than vol. 1), The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum, Die Hard
Office Space
Once again, I like lots of genres – including foreign and independent films but excluding westerns, mafia movies, and American Pie-type comedies.


Food -- In broad categories, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, and Mexican are my favorite foreign types of cuisine. Specifically, I like sushi, anything with noodles, quesadillas, and cereal.
Six things I could never do without
Music, my friends, Mountain Dew, my computer(s) + internet (I'm sure I could manage if we entered a technological dark age, but I'd be really, really sad), sunshine, a pen + writing surface/material . . .

I'm sure I could actually do without all these things (with the exception of sunshine), but I doubt this question wants me to list the medications or food that I require to continue living.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything and anything. I spend a lot of time thinking, period. Generally I'll have something I'm particularly into at any given time, and I often spend quite a bit of time thinking about it. I think about personality typing and theory; I'm fond of Myers-Briggs/Keirsey typing (I'm an INFP/INTP, so that's not surprising in and of itself), and like to think about what motivates people, including me.
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday night until the last three months, I often stayed up late talking to my long-distance friends on the phone or Skype, or watching a movie with my father. Friday nights in a small town really aren't the same after you graduate high school and there's no high school drama for your Friday night entertainment. In my new location, I haven't really settled into a routine yet. So far, it generally involves the Internet, my roommate, and me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Occasionally, I'm not punctual or present even for things that are really important to me. Then I end up hurting people inadvertently, which makes me sad.
You should message me if
you want to . . . ?
