I'm really bad at just rattling of information about myself, so
we'll see how it goes...
So, my name is Chris. I'm a Jack-of-all-trades hippie, currently
residing in Sacramento, California, though I may be moving soon. I
spend most of my time working, helping out friends with
babysitting, and searching for long-term employment that fits my
interests. In what little free time is left, I garden, explore the
Parks along the American River with my dog Tyrion(Yes, named for
the dwarf of House Lannister), play myriad video games, and
That's about all I can think of, but I give much better answers to
precise questions, so feel free to ask.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it. =) Oh fine, a serious answer, then. I avoid colleges
like the plague; in a whole world full of readily-accessible
information I refuse to waste time and money on a piece of paper
proving I learned something. I do occasional contract work with a
few friends and local businesses: organization, landscaping,
building houses, and whatever else needs doing. I try to stay
active; I've been fat, didn't like it. Procrastinating on writing
my book. And generally just doing my best to stay sane in a world
that's gone off the deep end.
I’m really good at
Ignoring the stupid shit and generally being a really pleasant guy
to hang out with.
The first things people usually notice about me
I walk barefoot everywhere and my hair is fantastic.
And a few friends of mine have told me that no matter what clothes
I am wearing, I still look like a stoner hippie... so there's that,
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hrmkay, well let's start with Books: My favorite authors are
Stephen King, Orson Scott Card, and Terry Goodkind. My favorite
series' are The Dark Tower by Stephen King, Harry Potter by J.K.
Rowling, and The Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind. My favorite
standalone novels are Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, The Stand
by Stephen King, and White Fang by Jack London. I've read and
enjoyed a plethora of other fine works by many fantastic authors,
but it would take far too much time and a much better memory than
my own to list them all.
Movies: I love the action genre, anything chock-full of explosions
and bullets and car chases, especially in the theater. There is no
movie I won't watch once, and I'm not afraid to shed a single,
manly tear during a heart-wrenching scene. I love, love, LOVE,
pre-cgi movies that look awesome, (i.e. Jurassic Park, Indiana
Jones, the original Star Wars movies) back when people had to work
to make a cool movie. It's not hard to keep me entertained so long
as there's a solid plot. I'd have to say my favorite movie of all
time is The Gladiator. Russell Crowe is a badass.
TV: I used to watch a lot of television, but I'm trying to tone it
down recently as I can hear my brain melting during commercials. I
keep up with Castle, Bones, the Mentalist, True Blood, The
Newsroom, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, and a few others.
Music: Everything under the sun! I tend to avoid rap, and my
favorite music would fall under the Hard Rock category. Pink Floyd,
Disturbed, Tool, System of a Down, etc.
The six things I could never do without
I'm gonna try to not be all facetious and say stuff like water,
food, and air.... so lets see.
the love of my friends and family
open air (I can't stand the city)
My little buddy Tyrion
My hands! Very important things, hands.
warm weather. I enjoy visits to colder climates, but I love me some
I did it! Yay me, time for a cookie.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything and Nothing. Nothing is an interesting thing(or lack
thereof) to think about. Everything came from Nothing, whether you
support the Big Bang theory or believe in Creationism. Nothing is
the framework of the universe, filling the spaces in between
Everything. At an atomic level, Everything is more Nothing than
Something, The Universe is Nothing, We are Nothing, Everything is
Nothing. And Nothing is beautiful.
(No, I am not a nihilist, but this is a good example of the kind of
thoughts usually running around my mind.)
On a typical Friday night I am
At home resting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am unafraid of Death. Not in a stupid or childish way, I don't
play chicken with cars or wrestle bears, nor do I swallow cinnamon
and chug gallons of milk while shouting 'yolo'. Rather I live each
and every day to its fullest, Carpe Diem, as it were. I don't
suffocate myself with fear of what could be, but enjoy what IS. I
am good to my friends and loved ones, I help those who come to me
in need, and live free of social anxiety and angst. When Death
someday comes to me I will greet Him with open arms, as an old
friend, and return to the Ether from whence I came.
You should message me if
you feel like it. ha
