Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First things first, I suppose - I am a geek. I love to learn. I am
a hands on person and am always learning how to do new things. I
went to a vocational school for electronics and then to college for
computer science, though I'm taking a break from school. I'm
working full time in IT DevOps which is basically just jargon for
all-around IT guy. Personality-wise I would describe myself as
friendly, loyal and intelligent, but I'd rather you decide for
yourself than listen to some vague words about it. As for my humor,
it tends to be a bit on the sarcastic side, at least with people I
know well. Oh, and I'm good with obscure references.
I have quite a few hobbies, some of which are cars, car audio, home
theater, video games, movies, music, anime, etc. Huge fan of music
in particular. I'm listening to it most of the time. I also love to
get outside and toss a frisbee or go swimming or boating or
especially wake tubing. I go disc golfing pretty often. I spend a
lot of time working on my car and would like to get a project car
to work on at some point. I also build/fix electronics/computers in
my spare time.
One thing I would like to add to my list of accomplishments is to
be well traveled, but unfortunately I have yet to venture beyond
our conf... err, borders. I think I'd like to go to Australia the
most but Europe in general would be cool, or maybe Japan. I suppose
it depends on what comes up.
I'm looking for a deep, meaningful, lasting relationship. I think
it would be great if we had some shared interests that we could do
together. I also think that the best relationship involves the best
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working at a small company doing programming,
websites and internal support. In my spare time, I like to work on
my car, home theater, or computer. I also like to go do things with
friends - boating, wake tubing, water slides, amusement parks,
whatever. I also play video games and many other things.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I would like to say learning. I am a technical person and I like to
learn the intricate details of anything and everything. I am also
generally a hands-on person, so I'm always learning stuff because
I also consider myself generally a good listener and advice giver.
I like to help my friends out.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, I often get comments about T-shirts that I wear since I like
to wear amusing shirts from Woot and Threadless, so I'm gonna go
with that. Anything else, people don't really tell me, anyway.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Going with boring list format for most of this answer. Lists might
be boring, but at least they are readable. I like a lot of all of
those things, so none of these lists will be anywhere near
Books - been meaning to read more lately, but here are a few
favorites so far:
Guide to the Galaxy
-Lord of the
Movies - some of many. I typically prefer comedy. Also an anime
-Robin Hood: Men In
TV - Love TV, especially anime. Sometimes I follow stuff closely,
sometimes not much.
(which should be making its way to my book list as well
Met Your Mother
Sunny in Philedelphia
LOTS more... (I'll just say that after every list, lol)
especially Macross Plus
and Macross 7
Again, lots more...
Games: Valkyria Chronicles
, some of the
series, Xenoblade Chronicles
, Forza 4
I am a huge fan of music and like many types. I like most 80s music
including pop, rock, hair bands, pretty much whatever. I like a lot
of rock. Some metal, but nothing with much screaming. I'm a big fan
of alternative and that's what I've been mostly listening to
lately. Here are some of many, many bands that I like: Billy Joel
, Tom Petty
, 10,000 Maniacs
, Dave Matthews Band
, Hootie and the
, The Moody Blues
, The Eagles
, They Might Be
, Weird Al Yankovic
. Jonathan Coulton
is awesome. As
of recent, I am also a fan of Noah and the Whale
and Jack's Mannequin
. I also like
other types of music like classical and more...
Foods... Well, I must say that a good steak is hard to beat. I like
chicken and turkey a lot as well, especially in buffalo sauce. Or
spiced olive oil. Also a big fan of spaghetti and meatballs,
lasagna, and brick oven pizza. I'm also a big fan of chocolate, but
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and friends, of course. I am very close to my family and I
like to spend a good amount of time with them. Aunts, uncles,
cousins, second cousins - all close in my family. I see friends
pretty often as well. I like to hang out.
I'd also say technology... Things to learn... And good food to eat.
I'll round it out with my car, I guess.
Why is this section specifically SIX things, anyway?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the future, I guess. I also tend to often be trying to solve some
problem or another. I have a pretty active mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing any of many possible things. I often have friends over my
house on Fridays. But I could go out with friends as well, or maybe
be working on my car. Or maybe lounging after a rough week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not even sure myself, but either way, you'll have to find out
