Who is anyone anyway? What is a person but an instance of code at a given coordinate in time and space? A blink in oblivion.

I write code but "software developer" feels so limiting. I write but I wouldn't call myself a writer. I make things on the internet but that's just one side of me. You get the gist. Every title is a bit ill-fitting. They all come with assumptions and preconceived notions that don't really describe me.

Or maybe I just hate boxes. The sharply defined lines that are supposed to boil you down to a list of bullet points and the baggage attached to each.

Maybe because I'm a contradiction. 

A software developer more interested in art than a new framework. A writer who sees writing code as another creative outlet. An introvert who occasionally enjoys extrovert-ing. A chronic overthinker who likes to let things be.

If I had to pick I'd say I'm a creative. Searching for catharsis and chasing the highs of inspiration wherever it leads me.

Maybe that's not so contradictory after all. 

Who is anyone anyway? Depends on the coordinates in time and space.

    @keenencharles This description sounds very "quantum" to me but somehow very fitting.

      @keenencharles @brandonwilson YEA! Love quantum!!!
      What an amazing "label" which is a negation of labels!
      And so adequate here...
