My self-summary
Newly engaged!

Preamble: I like to be amused, surprised, enlightened, touched. I want to learn EVERYTHING, until my brain gains so much mass from the knowledge that it collapses into a black hole, making possible for humanity to travel to other galaxies. But now I'm just being silly. Maybe though, this can give you a better intro to me than a list of my likes and dislikes.

Hello, my name is Adam and I'm a life long (19 years now) type-1 Diabetic. Which means a virus shut down my pancreas when I was 5. I love to play MMO's, and have been beta-testing them since the second phase of EverQuest. I have a particular interest in picking things apart, and asking the question "why?". I am a very honest and caring individual, and an aspiring intellectual.

Everything I aspire to do I do so rationally and optimistically. I like to take the small parts and see how they fit into the larger parts, and how those larger parts will work better. I am a man of efficiency.

Although "Blase" is an appropriate word to describe me, I'm trying to reinvent its meaning to more a positive connotation. Sometimes I have trouble prioritizing what's important to me because I indulge in all my curiosities. Life is too short to be worrying over negative influences, I would much rather surround myself with beautiful things. Which I have found can be anything and everything.

Let's see... I've raised, rescued, and loved a decent share of animals in my life. I've raised two panther chameleons, a ferret, seven cats and three were rescues, a sugar glider, and finally my three dogs. I try to volunteer my time whenever possible, but for now I spend my home-life looking after a singular cat who is the recipient of all my love.

I am a nerd, and very proud of it.

Once more for posterity, I am a nerd, and VERY proud of it.
What this mean to me is that I have a deep appreciation for my environment and the people I co-habitate with. As an objectivist I strengthen myself to ultimately strengthen those around me. I can be horrendously selfless at times, and meticulously selfish at others. Life is not black and white, it's shades of gray and this means each individual situation maintains it's own context. Which is important because context is what defines our actions.

I am a southpaw, an objectivist, and a TEDster
What I’m doing with my life
I don't pretend to think that I have any idea of what's in store for me. I do my best to have a sense of conviction in what's important, and I'm trying to follow that. My school plans are to major in either Sociology or Industrial and Organizational Psychology. I want to study social structures and group psychology as it exists in a largely anonymous environment and of pure internet origins. Less social networking like Facebook and Myspace and more simulated environments. Where virtual economy, social structure, political structure, and anonymity intersect. So I'll probably end up slaving away to research work. Which in all honesty, I could see myself doing for a long time. Now just to make it all ... happen o_O?
I’m really good at
I love being thrifty and try to make a habit of it. I still have a pair of corduroy pants from high-school that I refuse to replace until they become so threadbare I can't wear them anymore.

A predominant theme of my life was having to come to terms with my own mortality, through this journey I came to a deeper sense of appreciation for life. This is partly to blame for my "blase" lifestyle, but it's also to blame for my levelheadedness. There's too much negative that people surround themselves with, and I make it a point to try and ameliorate those around me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books would be "The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch" because Phillip K. Dick is amazing. As well as "The Principia Discordia" because the goddess Eris prevails. Some others are... The Rhapsody Trilogy, Canon by Natalie Angier, The Stuff of Thought by Steven Pinker, Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku, most things by Steven Hawking, and The Objectivist Papers by Ayn Rand.

I mostly enjoy independent films and like-minded directors like Jim Jarmusch who did such wonderful films like Ghostdog and Broken Flowers. I enjoy films that include elements with zero purpose. Some of my favorite are... Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Blazing Saddles, History of the World part 1, Young Frankenstein (do you notice the Mel Brookes trend yet?), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Science of Sleep, Blade Runner, The Dark Crystal, Meet the Feebles, Lost in Translation, the first Matrix

My favorite music is hard to pin down really. I'm a jack of all trades when it comes to musicianship. I blame it on growing up to Paul Simon, so the way I put it is... If you can feel the time and effort put into making the song. If you can feel the essence or direction of the song then I will probably enjoy it. A small list of my favorite artists include but are not limited to... Circa Survive, Tally Hall, Fear Before the March of Flame, Chromeo, Kaki King, Neil Young, Radiohead, The Fall of Troy, So Many Dynamos, MC Chris, City and Colour, Tegan and Sara, Alice in Chains, Morphine, Motion City Soundtrack, Mike Patton, Elliot Smith, Bruce Lash, Barenaked Ladies, Alexisonfire, Frank Zappa

Favorite food is Unagi Sushi, It's like BBQ chicken except exotic, and awesome.
The six things I could never do without
1) Insulin - It allows me to regenerate my nerves and ultimately live.
2) The nights sky - I have a deep passion for astronomy and learning about the universe. The sky at night allows us to see billions of years into our past. It's such a magnificent and invaluable thing to have.
3) Diet Pop - Diabetes makes me really thirsty, so it's nice to have a free snack.
4) NPR - If I'm not listening to a CD in my car, then I'm listening to NPR. Science Friday FTW.
5) Corduroy Pants - Slightly baggy, and loose vintage pants for life.
6) Friends - I am an only child and raised by a single parent. The small group of very close friends I have I treat like my siblings. I will die for friends, at the drop of a hat. They mean a lot to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life and all the intricate things that fall in between. I love thinking about complex ideas and empathetical situations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights are best spent with friends, of the physical or digital variety. I like to partake in both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I shed a tear every time I hear "Nutshell" by Alice in Chains on their MTV Unplugged album.

When cuddling, I prefer to be the little spoon. I put a lot of effort into providing and taking care of those around me. At the end of the day, it's such a treasure to be held.

I'm an only child raised by single parents. Both parents looked after me, and I saw them on a regular basis. However I was left to my own devices for the majority of my life. This has left me with the ability to entertain myself for long periods of time. Sometimes I need time to recharge when I've been around a group of people for a while.

I like to think I can survive of my own accord, but I've come to realize that the company of others is a beautiful thing that I've been missing.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 20–26
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
The critical hit from [WALL OF TEXT] did not kill you.

Though it "Missing" or "Whiffing" does not count. For shame!
