My self-summary
I may be overplaying my hand, but I want to find someone to build something with. The odds of me finding that someone here are slim, but I don't think they're any slimmer than finding that someone in a bar or via work or wandering around catching Pokemon.

I'm an unabashed geek. Most of my social life is constructed around gaming, and that's where the bulk of my free time goes.

With that in mind:

-STR 12 DEX 10 CON 16 INT 17 WIS 14 CHA 14
-Gryffinclaw (deal with it)
-Team Instinct
-Jeskai, but sometimes kind of Mardu
-Obligatory INTJ
-House Stark

I tend to err on the side of meeting sooner rather than later after an interesting chat, and I'm amenable to a lot of activities for said meeting.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently got a new job; it's pretty time-consuming and stressful, but I'm learning things and being challenged. What free time I have is usually spent gaming or engaging in gaming-related projects. I had a podcast for a while, and am in talks about starting another.
I’m really good at
"Really good" might be a stretch, but here are some things I enjoy a lot and am pretty good at: Magic: the Gathering, Texas Hold 'Em, singing (though really only in a karaoke sense, I think), debating existential nonsense, consuming alcoholic beverages (both the actual consumption and the aftermath), and reading/writing/various lit stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm noticing them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm just going to list things I experienced recently.

Books: The Magicians Trilogy, everything Neil Gaiman wrote, a bunch of China Mieville and Neal Stephenson, a bunch of Margaret Atwood

Movies: I really just keep myself up to date on superhero crap and other fandoms. Definitely happy for excuses to go see things I might not otherwise.

Shows: Almost done Stranger Things. Honestly I tend to mostly watch Magic: the Gathering coverage/content.

Food: All the things. I have recently eaten all the things.
Six things I could never do without
-Human interaction
-Escapes from human interaction
-Books (the physical objects, along with their ephemeral content)
-Cigarettes and coffee, currently (I've done without in the past, for stretches)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to eat, mostly.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday is sort of my flex night right now, so usually catching up with friends who I don't see regularly. Ostensibly, going on dates with people I meet on OKCupid? We'll see.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I recently spent an entire morning finding sheet music and practicing laboriously for about 50 seconds worth of singing when a friend asked me to sing a part with them at karaoke later that night.
You should message me if
-You want to walk around and have some expository dialogue while catching Pokemon
-You want to get a little drunk and sing at some strangers
-You have a favorite restaurant you want to bring me to
-There's a cool event you want to go to, but not alone
-Myriad other reasons
The two of us
