My self-summary
Olen suomalainen, mutta englanti sujuu ongelmitta sillä se on olennainen osa harrastuksiani ja kiinnostuksenkohteitani. Koska haluan jakaa ne, rajaan tietoisesti hakuani hieman kielen perusteella.

I'm a vegan who places great value on the fair treatment of people as well. At heart, however, I'm a nerd. I like computer games, board games, role-playing games, and card games to a lesser degree. I'm also fascinated with science, fulfilled by insight into the inner workings of culture and cosmos. I'm an introvert, and as entertained as I am by the profundity and absurdity that constitute my mind, I spend too much time riding its tides. I'm usually rather reserved around new people, but talk to me about science, science fiction or games and I won't shut up. I write as a hobby, and engage in animal rights activism when I have the time and energy.

I tend to appear aloof and as having my head in the clouds, but I'm more than capable of maintaining a serious conversation about the political, biological, philosophical and hypothetical.

I'm also bad at talking about myself. If you have any questions, ask away!

I don't have A-list. It's always nice to know when someone likes me, even if it's anonymously, but it's not a good way of prompting a response from me. Send a message if at all interested, I won't bite. No jokes, no caveats, just no biting whatsoever :)

PS. The photo is outdated. I'll put in a new one when I can manage a good one. I'm not terrible-looking, but terribly unphotogenic!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm exploring this life, universe and everything business. Specifically I'm examining this human equation of ours, and how it has a tendency to err on the side of destructive. I'll try to inject some reason and compassion into the mix when the opportunity presents itself.
I’m really good at
getting misunderstood and failing at sarcasm. Truly, they're real talents. I am also good at reading people, listening, and giving advice. I can see through deception and posturing fairly easily and don't particularly like people who engage in either.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look younger than I am. Or so I'm told. I appear shy and reserved, and usually I am with new people. But the second things people notice are my gentle spirit and keen insight. And goofiness,
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've recently come to realize that while I don't actually read books, I do enjoy looking into matters scientific, source-checking, dialogue, and other things that likewise educate me in the ways of the world.

Movies... A really complicated thing, really. At first, I found myself explaining the reasons for each individual movie I like, but that's not what this is about, is it. I like a lot of different things depending on my mood. Usually the movie just has to be honest to itself, whatever that means. If you want to compare notes, hit me with a message ;)

Shows. Okay, this is easier. True Detective, Westworld, The Expanse, Galactica, Babylon 5, Deadwood, Rome, Six Feet Under, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Monty Python, etc. tralala.

Music. My taste in music leans towards black metal, but I also enjoy good ambient, psy/goa trance, movie soundtracks... Anything that has a lot of musical hooks and takes time to digest. I generally have to find my own meaning for a piece of music. That means that I have to listen to it enough (without getting bored!) to find it, and usually find that lyrics only serve to annoy me.

Food. Pizza, pasta, mashed potatoes, Indian, Thai, whatever. Vegan, of course. I don't mind cooking, but really enjoy it when the fruit of my/our labor is shared :)
Six things I could never do without
1. Games
2. Friends
3. Food!
4. Thinking
5. Zen (listing it is kind of strange, since I don't know what it is, and suspect that it isn't anything at all, really, other than a way of spontaneous existence)
6. Freedom
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what makes people tick, and why we tick in the ways that we do.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home. On the internet or watching a movie, dreaming of something more fulfilling.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you want to know something, ask me. I don't really see the purpose in public confessions.
You should message me if
If you like long talks about nothing in particular, or anything at all. I do not warm up to formalities, but would much rather get straight down to business. So, suggest a topic, or even better, make an assertion. Starting out with something goofy is a good way to catch my attention. Being all-around awesome is the best way of keeping it ;)
