My self-summary
Is anyone good at these? Great, me neither. I'm going to make a list, because lists are awesome ways of conveying information.

* I recently just started learning to partner dance. It is some of the most fun I've had in awhile.
* The only dance experience I had before that was Capoeira, which was a Brazilian martial arts/dance hybrid. It doesn't carry over.
* I moved to Washington from Connecticut for a Customer Service job at a company I've always wanted to work for. Inside a year, I moved up to Research and Development.
* I'm a sucker for a cute romance story.
* I design games for a living.
* My first day of college, I decided to join a club immediately to break out of my introvert-y shell. I ended up doing comedic improv. Everyone (myself included) was shocked
* Despite having no theater experience, after starting improv, I spent a bunch of time in New York City taking classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater.
* I taught improv semi professionally before I moved out here.
* I have a hard time explaining game design to people who have no idea what game design is, because I don't have access to Wikipedia in real life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_design)
* My favorite color is purple, and I can usually be found with one of the purple pens I took from my office.
* I noticed I was only half an adult when I used the phrase "I have totally baller health insurance this year." I regret nothing.
* Psychology is my unofficial jam
* I'm great at remembering facts about people but terrible at remembering their names.
* I was an electrical engineering major. Somehow, this means I'm supposed to fix everyone's computer.
* I enjoy dropping the mic at any and all appropriate circumstance. Also some that are not appropriate.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved out here two years ago for a Customer Service job at my dream company, and managed to flip that into a dream job at that dream company. In my spare time, I'm gallivanting around, alternatively learning as much as I can in my chosen field, teaching where possible, and pushing boundaries. I'm really looking forward to fixing several issues in my industry, but don't tell them that, okay? I like working at my own pace.
I’m really good at
Figuring out why things are the way they are. Not getting angry over things other people get angry at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I usually notice how it is totally time for a haircut, but then don't get one.

I am, however, not most people. This isn't a question I've ever asked. I'm going to go with radiant awesomeness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I personally love non-fiction books. Currently on a psychology kick: Flow and Lucid Dreaming being the most recent. It also has a nice tie in with Game Design books: Game Feel, Total Engagement, and numerous others.

I have been sadly remiss in watching TV or movies lately. It makes conversing with people about topics of the day a ton harder. Some shows I've been known to enjoy: Arrested Development, Community, Colbert Report.

I also enjoy Cinnamon Buns. If you bring me a basket of them, I pretty much immediately induct you into the "Hall of Best Friends."

Games: Phantom Dust (apparently, I'm the only human that has played this game), The World Ends With You, Bastion, Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask, Earthbound, Braid, Shadow of the Colossus, tons of others. Anything that pushes game play boundaries or narrative structure in games.
The six things I could never do without
More lists? Hell yes.

* Headphones, music, and the ability to tune it all out (totally counts as one thing).
* Blankets on a cold night
* Interactive art
* Ice cream sandwiches
* Other people
* Adorable animals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much I dislike emoticons, but require them to get tone across in text communications. Joking around via text is hard without a little pictorial aid.

Many different things. I need about three projects to think about at once, or I get bored.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering. Doing something or another with friends. Also potentially just playing/making/watching games of some kind on a quiet night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Anytime I see a dog on the street, in a picture, wherever, my voice immediately raises three octaves, and I talk at it like a two year old ("HI PUPPY HI!").
You should message me if
You're interested at all! I'd be happy to get the chance to know you if you'd like to know me. Also if you have a super cool hobby that I should totally know about. OR! If you like learning new things!

Or if you have puppy pictures you'd like to show me. I friggin love puppies.
