Moving up in the video game world
How about we… pick a spot on the map (that isn't popular on a crime map), go there, and let our curiosity be our guide.
An awesome place I've visited:
Sweden. I went for business but I want to go back. Other than that I go to my imagination every day.
My perfect Sunday:
So many. It could be waking up and going to grab coffee and breakfast in a cafe in downtown Long Beach, having brunch and bloody marys with friends, waking up and walking out of a tent to gather wood to make a fire to cook breakfast (it's been so long), walking outside to enjoy a crisp fall morning and watch the light trickle through the trees. I'm easily contented, but I either like to spend time with people I care about or in states where I can admire the world....or I wake up and play video games and m
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Oh wow, this will reveal so much....okay, go: I grew up in a conservative christian home where I loved writing poetry, theatre, and sports. I went to college for computer science and theatre arts half the country away where I figured myself out/completely changed my worldview, sabotaged my chances at grad school (see how many words I'm getting in? :D), and learned a lot about life. Then I had a sucky job in the gaming industry for about 4 years before I finally carved out a career at a place that I truly
My first concert / My dream concert:
Dream concert is a festival in my backyard (that doesn't exist, work with me). Line-up is (in no particular order): The Kills, DCFC, The National, Modest Mouse, Smashing Pumpkins (the old one!)...Just listening to live music all night long.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
I know quite a bit, or used to, about sugar gliders.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
are imaginative, thoughtful, empathetic, chivalrous, considerate, passionate, intelligent, not self-centered, funny/silly. The more of these she hits, the harder I fall. If you want to talk about my pitfalls? Creative types, charismatic people, sarcastic wit. These can blind me to flaws.
What I would bring to show and tell:
My mom. She's whimsical, creative, outrageous, and mischievous. What? It's not funny when your mom is accidentally racist on occasion? Pssh. [I'm assuming this is some kind of weird theoretical show and tell]
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
I will tell plenty. I won't shut up. I do this when I'm excited or nervous. It happens at first when I meet someone I connect with.
I secretly want to be:
married someday. Sometimes I think people are afraid of this. When someone says they want to be married or have kids someday it's a huge red flag that scares away anyone who is not ready. Yeah, I'm looking for someone I want to spend the rest of my life with. I'd be naive to think I couldn't meet them anywhere at any time, but I won't rush life.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
better every day. Who has a spirit that just doesn't quit when things get tough, who wants to not just be better at their job or ambitions, but seeks to improve themselves so they can love others more (cheeeese). Also someone who puts their words into action.
An infatuation of mine:
My dog. Seriously. I've never loved an animal so much and I grew up with two dogs. She's the best dog I've ever had. They don't even compare.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Write fiction and poetry when I felt like it and do my job when I felt like it. I do like my job.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
that I'm smart, accomplished, and have a heart that is 3 sizes /too/ big. She's the mom who will somehow let it slip that her daughter does such and such in LA to her midwestern friends and then sneak me a mischievous smile that says she knows it rubs me the wrong way, but she just can't resist.
I want to come home to:
Relaxing couch cuddling with someone amazing, plus my other someone amazing (my pup).
