My self-summary
I've been told that I'm not the kind of guy you want to bring home from a bar, but the kind you want to bring home to meet the parents. Personally, I'm fine with that. I'm far from dull and I still go out drinking with friends on occasion, but my wild college past is long behind me.

I try to keep a tight-knit group of friends. That said, that tight-knit group always seems to get bigger, for some reason, which is fine with me. I treat my friends like my family, which sometimes bites me in the butt.

Other than that, I'm a laid-back guy who tries to worry about bigger issues and not small details. I'll readily admit I'm a dreamer with my head in the clouds, but that always isn't a bad thing.

I am sarcastic, intelligent, and nerdy
What I’m doing with my life
I just got out of a long-term relationship, so I'm still getting my legs back under me with this whole "single" thing. I have no idea what is acceptable anymore. I mean, really, Snapchat? Tinder? What are those?
I’m really good at
..getting along with people. I guess I have a high empathy score on some of these tests. I'm one of those guys who understands that people can have differences of opinion and still have a civil conversation about other things. Guess it comes from being a liberal in Kansas.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, so I'm told. I'm not particularly "OMG HOT," but I'm told my eyes sparkle, or something like that. Either that, or I'm usually with a group of friends talking loudly about one thing or another, and that gets people to notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love cooking, but sometimes am too lazy to. If you can cook good chicken and mashed potatoes, you will be loved forever.

I haven't read books for a long time. Previous jobs required me to read almost constantly (long, boring magazine articles), so I haven't yet picked up a book I really enjoy. When I do, it will likely be a nonfiction political or historical book.

I listen to just about any kind of music. I play the guitar (or try to, not terribly good), so I try to appreciate all types of music.
The six things I could never do without
1. My computer
2. guitar
3. coffee
4. My KU jacket
5. friends
6. family.... yes, the last two are cliche.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, politics, anything that my mind thinks up at any given time. I've done some stream of consciousness writing, and I'm fairly certain a clinical trial is in order.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to get away from my computer, hanging out with friends over a couple beers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have this weird hobby of imagining myself writing popular, modern day songs and/or shows, and then traveling back in time and presenting them as my own, and imagining the reactions of people. Yes, it's nerdy. And I have no idea why my mind works that way.
You should message me if
You want to talk politics, current events or just need someone to listen. I firmly believe a good conversation is the start of all good things, be it friendships, relationships or other partnerships.
