Who Am I?

I don't know who I am. So I'm going to try to figure it out.

I'm 19 years, 7 days old. I was born in Waukegan, IL, where I lived for the first four years of my life. I've lived in St. Charles ever since then.

I could do a life history, but I don't think that much of that has shaped who I am today.

I'm a nerd. I'm a computer geek. I like sitting in front of the computer a lot, and it makes me very happy to just code away.

I'm the Development Manager for a website that I work for with a couple of my friends. I have a goathack account, and I play with it a lot. I've coded patches for LJ, and I've worked for support.

That's getting closer to who I am.

I like to play with computers. I like to poke at things on them and make them break, or see how they work. Lately, I've been looking at the LJ database schema. no real reason, just for fun.

I'm a computer science major in the engineering college at UIUC. It's in the top 5 engineering schools in the country. It's hard. College classes aren't easy. (Yes. I'm a whiner. So shoot me.) I like math and science, but I'm not really GREAT at either of them.

I like girls. With a friends list that's got at least a small number of people who aren't purely heterosexual, that might be interesting. I'm not gay at all. dougb declared me, on a gayness scale of 1-10 (1 being not at all, 10 being kylecool) of being a -1. Some people think I'm serious when I talk about getting a boyfriend next: I'm not. it's all jokes ;)

I'm still growing up. I've only had one relationship, and it was a doozy. It's definitely changed how I am.

I don't have many friends. I have lots of people who know me, but I don't have lots of friends. At school, I've got Christy. I've also got erin, and a couple other people online that I'm good friends with.

I'm at least partially a loner. I like being online, but I'm rather anti social. I don't go out, I don't party. I don't drink, smoke, do drugs. I don't go out much. I don't go to bars or clubs.

I like to dance. I love high school dances and mid 90's dance music.

I like to laugh at stupid people. I like nerdy facts. I like the fact that my userinfo is a combination of BML tags.

I like pie. I like watching dvd's curled up on my bed or sitting in my nice comfy computer chair. I like listening to music on headphones, even though my roomate is deaf and can't hear it anyway.

I like pringles.

All of this, and I"m no closer to knowhing who I am.

I think the answer to "who am i" is quite simple.

I am Chris.
