My self-summary
I'm a good person, and every now and then even a great one. Still, no better am I, than the rest of them. And so it happens, that sometimes I end up being a bad person, no matter how hard I try otherwise. But most of the time, what I am, is just my own person.

I’m calm and very passionate. I speak my mind openly, but don't enjoy confrontations. I admit of having the habit of saying the last word, in good as in bad. I keep an open mind as well as open eyes. I make my own mind instead of taking things as given. Still I'm not afraid to admit it if I was wrong.

I consider myself a geek and the tests seem to agree.

If your looking for Captain Kirk, you better move along, because you'd be stuck with Mr. Spock.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm studying at the University of Helsinki, majoring on Environmental Soil Sciences with minors in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Microbiology and Mycology. It's a handful and takes most of my time but I enjoy it. I chose to study soil sciences because I believe that our environment as well as agriculture are important and I want to do something that has a potential of making a difference, not because of money, nor out of pure scientific interest (althought I do think that what I study is awesome). Might sound a bit idealistic, but trust me, there's nothing as down to earth as having your hands in the dirt.

I work part-time in order to pay for my studies. It's more like a hobby than anything else and honestly enjoy working as it provides some variety to my, mostly academic life. Besides I have a great job in the local hobby store and the best possible co-workers.

When I have extra time in my hands I like to paint portraits, landscapes, still-lifes, abstract and realistic alike. I enjoy vivid colors and fast pace so I paint with acrylics.

I would very much like to take ((dancing)) lessons, especially tango. And I'd like to find a fair maiden to dance the nights away.
I’m really good at
I have a very steep learning curve and it doesn't take long before I excell in things I take up.

I enjoy playing card games and boardgames and it's a good way to spend time with friends and family.

I used to work in a coffee shop and developed a passion towards coffee. This led me to compete as a Barista for a couple of years. And I must say I'm very good at making coffee: I know if the milk for a latte is being made the right way from the sound of it and know what's wrong with the coffee by look of it. Still I can't say I'm too picky about my coffee.

The little things, like cooking nice meals, noticing what kind of music people like, what kind of books they enjoy etc. It's the little things in life that matter the most.

Writing walls of text, if haven't you noticed.
The first things people usually notice about me
It used to be my bright red hair, and beard, and mustaches. But I imagine that the first thing that people notice about me in general is something related to my facial features. Especially my eyes, that I've been told are quite striking. Especially since they're not afraid to look into yours.

But let's try this the other way around. The first thing I'm likely to notice about you is your nose, if I can see your face that is. Because truth be told, your nose is standing in the middle of your face all regal like, and I like noses. They give people character. Your eyes as well. And honestly, people notice your eyes whether they're sparkling bonds of clearest blue or deepest dark of hazel. You don't need to have separate pictures of just your eyes, or one eye for that matter. They get noticed. Curves will be noticed as well, but are hardly on the first thing on the list, as facial recognition is what people aim at on first glance. Bear in mind that clothing can work wonders to obfuscate the mind and redirect the eye, but if your just you, then it's your face in full bloom that people notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read as it relaxes me to have my mind working on something. It's world in all it's variety and life in it that holds me in awe.

Some great minds of present day and near past: John Gray, Arthur Koestler, Robert Nozick and John Rawls.

Some great authors of fiction, from science fiction to horror: Joseph Conrad, Frank Herbert, Orson Scott Card, Robert Holdstock, Edgar Allen Poe, Jeff Long, Holly Black, Neil Gaiman, Clive Barker and H. P. Lovecraft.

If I had to choose just one artist and just one song to call my own (don't we all have a song that in some ways defines us?) it would definitely be Crossroads by Don McLean.
I listen to wide variety of music from Chris Isaak to Kraftwerk and all the way to harder industrial like Wumpscut, Hocico. There is also room for more synthpop oriented music like Project Pitchfork,Depeche Mode, Apoptygma Berzerk, Covenant, Seabound, Edge of Dawn, Imatem, Camouflage, Wolfsheim, Diorama, And One, Assemblage 23 and BeBorn Beton.
I really enjoy dancing and one can often find me jamming to 80s dance hits from such artist like Alphaville, Duran Duran, Nik Kershaw just to name a few. And I can't help but mention other favorites from the 80s, like Kate Bush, Cyndi Lauper, Shakespears Sister and Vangelis.
I also like to listen to Indie, Electro and TripHop bands like Rome, Electric Six, Barenaked Ladies, Morcheeba, Philter, Ugress, Ratatat, Wax Tailor, Jem, Ashbury Heights, Tori Amos, Bertine Zetlitz, Karin Ström, Au Revoir Simone, Portishead, Saltillo, Conjure One, Strophic, RJD2, Emancipator,

One should not forget to tip their top hats to such great artists like Danny Elfman, Baz Luhrmann and Tim Burton. They deserve to be mentioned seperately, as they are in a league of their own.

My absolute favorite movie is Groundhog Day, there is just something about it that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Other great movies that I love: Infernal Affairs, Avatar, The Fountain, The Devil Wears Prada, Cashback, Children of Men, Mirrormask, Amélie, Strictly Ballroom, La Moustache, The Jacket, Dr. Strangelove, The Great Dictator, Colossus: the Forbin Project, Good Night, and Good Luck, Network and the original The Day the Earth Stood Still.
I quite enjoy well made older movies where actors could sing and dance among other things. Also I think that they used to pay more attention to dialogue and let the story evolve on its own pace, rather than rush from scene to scene, head over heels. So let me mention such great movies as Gone with the Wind, That Uncertain Feeling, Sabrina and in general anything with Audrey Hepburn.

Not long ago I watched the new X-men. It introduces the main characters made familiar in the previous movies. These two men both want to make a difference, they want to change the world, to make it a better place. Which one do you think you would be? Charles Xavier (Professor X) or Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto)? I think that the difference wasn't in how they perceived the world, but how they saw themselves. As part of the world or apart from it. And it's Raven's (Mystique) words that reflect this difference between the two: "You know Charles, I use to think it's gonna be you and me against the world. But no matter how BAD the world gets, you don't wanna be against it do you? You want to be part of it." As Professor X, I bid my fate with the rest of them, regardles of how I'm viewed or treated. If you need someone to be against the rest of the world with you. Then know that I cannot be that person, because I believe that only by being part of the society at large can I make a difference. And as I see it, Magneto never wanted to make a difference. He wanted to make a different world.

I do enjoy popculture and own the most comprehensive graphic novel collection, but I also enjoy ballet and art exhibitions, I would like some some company that would appreciate finer arts.
The six things I could never do without
I could empty my life of everything but the very essential, but I would be no more happy than if I filled my house with all the useless junk in the world. It's as much the useless as the usefull things that we need in life in order to be happy, and somewhere between them, there is a balance.

I'm not a big spender, but I do buy quite a lot of books, comic books, art books with pin-ups, fiction from world classics to sci-fi, academic literature from sociology to biology. So one thing I couldn't do without was reading. I can't even leave the house without a book or two in my bag.

Music, when I'm too tired to read or the neighbors are being too loud it's nice to take a break and let your mind drift along with soothing tunes.

For every tree and every flower, for every human being there are countless generations of forefathers, that have preceded those that stand now. For each there exists a lineage that has never been broken or else we wouldn't be here. Our close relatives are just the tip of the iceberg, and we call them family. An essential web of individuals, along with our close friends, that tie us to this moment and define our place in it. Through the tree of life we stand connected, in the sea of life no man is an island.

Something to do. I admit that I have a hard time just spending time doing nothing. It's made worse by the fact, that unlike most men, I'm fully capable of multitasking. So I'm always doing something, more often than not, several things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...where my life is going. Because I don't believe in happy endings, fate, karma or any other force which would define my future. It's there, but out of reach, what counts is here and now. I think about my options, opportunities that present themselves and whether they will pave my way to the emerald city. But sadly the way is hardly paved with yellow bricks. And when it rains it pours. I don't believe there to be balance, not natural order of things. The only constant thing in life is change. So I let myself change and try to keep up with the world around me, I guess that's what they call adapting.

...that one movie I remember from my childhood, but haven't been able tracked down yet.

...the same thing as everyone else: Looking for love, thinking about sex and yearning for affection.

...raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up in strings...

...perhaps, perhaps, perhaps...

...I'll start a truffle farm. Get some honey bees to boot. Invest in a bit of forest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Studying at the university or at home. Working or playing at friends' place doing things I like most: reading, watching a movie or just talking about various topics.

Sometimes I go out, because I do like dancing, but staying up late is not an option most of the time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I encourage people to be bold and honest. I'm very understanding and patient. So in order to get to know me, you only need to ask. A straight question gets an equally straight answer.

I admit having a thing for glasses and intelligence is a big turn on.

My sense of humor has been warped by my studies in chemistry and I can smile the whole day thinking about things like: NaCl/NaOH = The base is under a salt.

Appearance is important but it's the personality that matters the most, think of the body as a light bulb and mind as the electricity that makes it glow and light up the room. After all we are psychophysical wholes.

I'm a sucker for happy endings.

You should message me if
If you would think you could challenge me intellectually or...

If someone has told you lately that you think too much, then you should message me and share those thoughts.
I tend to tread lightly but my pace is anything but leisure like, if you've been told to slow down, then maybe you should see if your pace matches mine. It's not that I live a wild life, rather I have two feet under me and I'm not afraid to use them.
You should also message me if you enjoy the Victorian era's aesthetic sensibilities but do not share its moral values.
Or if you know how to agree to disagree. Take responsibility and give it up too.
If you think you were meant to finish my duet.
And not the least, even if just to say hello.

PS. I'm quick witted and quite perceptive, but I'm no Sherlock Holmes. So if you're interested at getting to know me, then please open up a bit and tell something about yourself. I'm not going to do the twenty questions routine.
