My self-summary
Hello! I'm a computer programmer and part-time grad student, although the latter should be wrapping up shortly. I'm pretty cripplingly shy until I get to know someone, but I can usually fumble my way through online conversations. I like to think I'm funny, although I imagine unfunny people do as well, so it might all be in my head. By and large I like my life the way it is, simple as it may be, and try hard to keep it from changing (see "On a typical Friday night" below -- that's pretty much how every night goes), but I'm not opposed to meeting new people if I think we'll get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Well, I used to work on the docks, but the union's been on strike and I'm down on my luck. It's tough. tough.

Actually, at the moment I'm pretty happy with the way things are. I have a job and friends that I like, and a functional internet connection. I'm told that some people have dreams, but as the Dude would say, that must be exhausting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It's hard to settle on favorites, but between my kindle and Netflix I can just pull up lists of media I've been through recently. So, in no particular order:

Recent books: Containment (Cantrell), Brilliance (Sakey), Gameboard of the Gods (Mead), Divergent (Roth), The Magicians (Grossman), Ready Player One (Cline), Epic (Kostick), Console Wars (Harris), Daemon (Suarez). If I'm in a non-fiction mood, anything by Michael Lewis seems to go well. Seriously, he made baseball interesting. My actual favorite book is currently probably Shades of Grey (not that one, the Fforde one)

Recent movies: Brooklyn, John Wick, The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Edge of Tomorrow, The Adjustment Bureau, Dredd, In Time, Apollo 13. My favorite is probably Shawshank Redemption, although I haven't seen it in a while

Recent shows: Rick and Morty, Archer, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Futurama, Helix, Nikita, 30 Rock, House of Cards, Broadchurch, Sherlock, Sports Night, West Wing, Wonderfalls. It's hard to pick a favorite, but from a sheer rewatch count it's probably Archer. Currently watching Stargate SG-1.

I'm going to replace a couple categories here, because I'm much more interested in games than music or food:

Recent computer games: Overwatch, Crypt of the Necrodancer, Invisible Inc., Spelunky, WoW, Orcs Must Die, Portal. My favorite game is probably Psychonauts, but roguelikes have too much replayability for me to walk away from

Recent board games: Power Grid, St. Petersburg, 7 Wonders, Flash Point, Alien Frontiers. Race for the Galaxy is easily my favorite, although I'm liking the dice variant they came out with recently
Six things I could never do without
* Computers
* My absurdly needy cat
* Books/movies. I could probably live with either one on its own, but having neither would get a bit boring
* Friends. It'd be ok for the first few years, and then I'd probably be pretty depressed
* You! Yes, you, dear reader. You are the one. Possibly. It can't be ruled out, anyway
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally home, on the computer with something playing in the background on Netflix. I pretty much live on computers, either reading, browsing websites, programming, or playing a game of some sort. As mentioned above, I like board games too, so I'm occasionally at others' houses playing those
