Hallo! Wie geht's Euch? Ich freue mich, daß Ihr meine Webpage besucht! OK, no more German.

So, my name's Nat Paulsen. I am 24 years old and live in Santa Barbara, California (or, as locals often call it, SB). I'm currently studying for a Ph.D. in music theory at UCSB (yes, even we academics enjoy the subtle pleasures of homestarrunner.com).

My non-HR-related interests interests include various church-related activities, such as choir, Bible Study and outreach. I am also obsessed with classical music of all sorts, especially Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Wagner and Mahler. I enjoy singing Schubert ''Lieder'' in my spare time. I am also fluent in German and enjoy speaking it whenever I can (as some of you may have guessed, my user name is a direct translation of the name "Homestar Runner").

'''UPDATE:''' Heimstern is in Oregon visiting his parents, sisters, dog and cat for Christmas. He'll still be around the Wiki, though.

The first person to figure out what Strong Sad is saying ''auf Deutsch'' and answer on my talk page wins cupcakes. Keep checking back; I'll put up a new one in a couple weeks or so.

==My history with H*R and the Wiki==
+
-
 
+
-
I first discovered homestarrunner.com in March 2003 when I saw a couple of friends of mine watching various [[Strong Bad Email|Strong Bad Emails]] (at the time, [[the show]] was the new Email). That summer, I introduced it to my entire family and hooked all three of my sisters (who often try very hard not to like anything that I like). I first encountered the Wiki sometime in 2004 or 2005 (I believe I followed a link from [http://www.wikipedia.org Wikipedia]), but I didn't become a regular user until summer of 2005. At that time, I discovered all the awesome things on the Wiki. I first registered sometime around 23 August 2005 because I wanted to vote on [[STUFF]]. On 6 October 2005 I finally made a user page and was greeted shortly thereafter by [[User:AbdiViklas|AbdiViklas]] (back when he was called "notstrongorbad") and [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]], who remain two of my favorite users. As I had no concept of such things as the recent changes page at the time, I was surprised to see that I had been noticed me at all! This was when I became active on the Wiki.

== Troll — in the Wiki — thought you ought to know ==
+

I enjoy making sure that the Wiki remains free of defacements and poor edits, and am to that end a member of the Recent Changes Patrol. Thus far, I've added thirteen trolls to WikiTroll (and have helped revert some that I didn't get to report). Still hunting for numba fourteen... <strike>although it seems unlikely that I'll catch any more vandals until the lockdown ends.</strike> This, in the words of Albus Dumbledore, "goes to show that the best of us must sometimes eat our words", in that I did in fact add another troll during the lockdown. That was very therapeutic. (P.S.: This section of my user page seems to be [[Wikipedia:Harry Potter|Harry Potter]] Quote Central.)

What else do I do here on the Wiki, you ask? Or maybe you don't ask, but I'm still going to tell you. I vote on STUFF and correct bad spelling and punctuation (some of you should really watch [[local news]] again: Ohh, if-you-want-it-to-be-possessive-it's-just-I-T-S. But-if-it's-supposed-to-be-a-contraction-then-it's-I-T-apostrophe-S. Scalawag.) I also occasionally add Fun Facts and deleted and STUFF some bad ones (or at least I thought they were bad!). I also revert bad edits.
