I'm a total nerd for a lot of things! From literature, art, philosophy & films to D&D, video games, astrophysics, and Animal Collective. And a lot more in-between, there are just so many interesting things in this world worth geeking out for ;)
I was home schooled from the time I was in first grade until the
time I walked out on it when I was 18. This has left me with some
social ineptitude or perhaps narcissism. It's hard to say which
statement is more accurate. Also, the idea of being "socially
inept" is a fallacy because the standard for social interaction
varies from person to person, era to era, society to society, and
etc. what I'm trying to say is that I'm a little awkward at first or at times, but I'm aware of it so I at least try to make it cute and charming...
I was raised by a pack of ravenous women and girls growing up and
as such, I have a much stronger effeminate side than even metro
sexual[s] I've met. So if you're looking for a testosterone driven macho man I'm probably not for you.
I was also raised by a now 85 year old father, he was three years old during the Great Depression and remembers standing in soup lines, he fought in WWII, he's one of the hardest workers I've ever known. He's got class like Frank and Dean and is a gentleman through and through. He raised me to be a gentleman.
I'm an intellectual, I love discussing and sharing knowledge.
I'm an artist and designer of all sorts. I often make stuff for friends
to cheer them up or show them I care
I'll open the door for you not because you're a woman but because
it's the polite fucking thing to do, for anyone!
I like being straight forward, open, honest, and accountable. Even
when those things may not work to my advantage. That is what it
means to have real integrity, doing the right thing even if it may
hurt you. I'm proud to be this way and that inflates my ego. I also pride myself on my ability to swallow my pride.
I'm a godless bastard, sorry, I just don't need some invisible apparition in the sky watching my every move in order to make me a better person. Or to give me hope. Sure maybe I'm going to hell but that's between me and your god and I'll argue that out with him someday. What an interesting day that will be.
