I'm 32, male, and bored. My life's not very interesting since it took a u-turn a couple years ago and I was forced to go on disability with chronic pain issues. Frankly, I'm not all that certain my life was very interesting beforehand, but at least it was more full. I had been working on a PhD in psychopharmacology and I still have an interest in drug abuse research. I had been running studies on both people and animals, looking at the effects of alcohol, amphetamine, and nicotine.
I spend most of my time on LJ commenting on daily events or ranting about something that's ticked me off. There are few things I like better than a good debate about politics or morality or whatever. I don't mind if you're a granola crunching, hippie moon priestess who worships pagan Gods and dances around naked in the middle of stone circles during the full moon, but be prepared for the occasional(Well, okay, perhaps more than just occasional) snarky comment.
I guess the easiest way to figure out what my LJ is like is to take a look at it. If you're very easily offended by language, you might want to beware. I don't tend to self-censor very much. After all, what's the point of self-censoring on your own blog? People will either accept you as you are or not. I don't see any reason to keep up some sort of pretense. I don't usually swear like a pirate, or for no reason, but I do tend to be incredibly blunt and up front with what I believe. I don't mind if you disagree, and in fact I sort of welcome it. I'll just end up doing my best to try to convince you you're wrong :).
The biggest events in my life of late are my yearly trips to gencon and origins. They're both gaming conventions in the midwest and are often the highlights of the year. Other than that, I get together with friends a couple times a month for board/card gaming and for some other minor local events year round. Other hobbies include reading/audiobooks, PSP/DS gaming, and kicking around online.
