sigh. I really wish I could put something here that would describe me.

I'm a young computer programmer. I work for a petroleum engineering consulting company. I love the work, and it is really my life now. I wake up at 5 in the morning and I'm at the office by 5:30. I moved into an apartment two blocks away my employer. If I'm not at work programming, it's because I'm at home programming. Frankly, I have better equipment at home.

I don't think my 'mission drive with everything' box is large enough to explain completely, so I'll do that here. Everything2 is a strange fantasy escape from reality for me. It's not that reality is bad, but my life doesn't seem real to me a lot of the time. Reading nodes on E2 that have to do with personal stories and things like that.. they are my reality. My reality is defined more by the shared, honest, and uncensored experiences of people on this forum than by my actual life. In fact, I think E2 keeps me grounded when my life feels like a fantasy. This is not what something online is supposed to do, but yet it does.

Everything 2 is an incredible forum for people to share ideas, experiences, and emotions.

My e-mail address is laotzu@pobox.com. I can occasionally be reached via ICQ, UIN 8633829. Also, occasionally by MSN Messenger, m_fenniak@hotmail.com.
