The other day I was reading "The Salmon of Doubt" in the park, when I heard a sound like a brick hitting the pavement hard, right next to me. I looked down to see what it was, and there, looking rather shocked, was a squirrel staring at me. I said to the squirrel, "I didn't know that you could fall out of trees." And it looked back at me, clearly trying to say "Neither did I. My entire life has been a lie." It made me happy to know that squirrels have existential crises as well.
For a day job, I develop software. I like social dancing, Judo, Boardgaming, and gaming in general, anime, but I also hit the gym a lot. Really more then anything I love the opportunity to learn new things, so whatever you're into I'd love to try out too.
I like to cook, but but I hate waiting, multitasking, and I have no sense of how much time has past or timing, and I’m forgetful and clumsy and have no manual dexterity, but I come up with creative ideas. I'm good at research and digging down to the foundational ideas that underlay a skill, and if I have time to plan and focus on one thing I'm very detail oriented and can really nail a dish. Really this is a metaphor for my whole life, and all kinds of things within my life.
In the past I've been into making my own cheese, Kayaking, I was in a band, I did standup comedy, I love boroque art, I've worked on a PC game that was published on Steam, I like wine and beer and every type of food, a garden a little, so you could say I like variety in a lot of things.
I like talking about philosophy, history, religion, politics, but honestly I probably won't get into that for awhile. It's hard to start a conversation with "how do you feel about the paradox of free will?"
Trying to get more active in "the community", social justicey stuff, though I've learned the best thing I can do is resist the urge to tell people what to do and support from afield. I try to do small stuff where I can, taught a kids programming class, if nothing else just trying to support the people who really need it.
