"I will seize Fate by the throat. It will not wholly conquer me! Oh, how beautiful it is to live - and live a thousand times over!" Ludvig van Beethoven
Prologue: I'm an Atheist, Humanist, independent Centrist, amateur scientist who watches anime/animation from independent artists and companies alike, and fences for fun in the SCA. If any or one of these things has not angered, befuddled, and/or turned you off in some way...
Hi how are ya doin?
What I’m doing with my life
I am a computer geek/rocket scientist/handyman, who happens to be going for an education degree... yeah weird huh? I received my Associate's degree with honors in the IT field but found that I enjoy teaching more and the ability to change young lives with STEM activities and applications. I enjoy trying new activities and hobbies such as chess, high powered rocketry, and fencing. However, I don't El normally partake in many other sports besides fencing since I don't find them as interesting. My most recent accomplishment would be that I led my schools Aeronautical Team to win 2nd place for the NASA Centennial Challenge. The team proved to be a real time sucker for me so I now try to focus on the more important things.
I’m really good at
I could go down a list and describe the multitude of things I am
good at but that wouldn't be fun would it? It's for the best you
message me to learn more if you are that interested.
The first things people usually notice about me
People tell me I am weird, dorky, unique, crazy, kind, and fun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Power of One, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games Trilogy, Artemis Fowl, The Hobbit - WAY too long ago...need to reread... The Inheritance Cycle, Tuesdays with Morrie, Star Wars The Jedi Academy Series. I prefer Science fiction novels when I have the time to read. Yes... I binge-read.
Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Merlin, Avatar, Firefly, Tron, Back to the Future Trilogy, The Hunger Games, Interstellar, The Matrix, Star Wars, The Boondock Saints, V For Vendetta, Tangled, Psy all the Miyazaki films, steins;gate, fate series, sword art online, pretty much every Disney film, Batman: The Dark Knight, Hidalgo, Merlin, The Musketeers, and I finally got around to seeing the new Doctor Who series. I have not seen the classic series though...
Owl City, Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, James Horner, Two Steps From Hell, Immediate Music, Daft Punk, Oasis, Chillstep (A form of Dubstep) Also please understand that my fascination and love for Chillstep comes from the associated feeling, while listening to it, that I am currently flowing through the data-stream of TCP/IP packets. Anything Really - except Country, "Death" Metal, and SOME Rap. Also Lindsey Stirling - amazing artist! look her up!
I enjoy Italian, Barbeque, and pretty much any cuisine except mushrooms (in rare circumstance), olives, and shellfish. Shellfish never agrees with my stomach (probably allergic).
The six things I could never do without
1. My families. (All three of them)
2. My friend's.
3. My cat.
4. That fourth missing heartpiece...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever I am currently reading online (news, tech, social media, memes). My mind constantly wanders Congroo and traverses the confines of the world wide web. The vast expanse of knowledge never bores me.
On a typical Friday night I am
I do not party often, however I have learned from past experience that I can party at will. I do not enjoy getting terribly drunk (I have only been really drunk twice in my lifespan) I enjoy a light buzz and if Wine is offered I prefer that. I am not "a social butterfly". I enjoy small hangouts with select friends and if I were to go out, I'd imagine I would enjoy a movie date, or a dinner someplace. Travelling is also not out of the question.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never really "got" the boyfriend girlfriend scene, which means that I haven't dated all that much. I used to be pretty meek/shy and to some degree still pessimistic about my dating outlook. Even now I sometimes ask myself if I am really worth anyone's time. I still fight to see if I can really find someone who appreciates me and likes me for who I am, not what I do.
You should message me if
I'll spare you a long drawn out ending and simply summarize a few things. I will not respond to those who do not put effort into a message. I do not respond to broken English or internet slang. I will however, respond to attempts to make conversation on every level. I know how hard it is to get someone to respond even when you are trying your hardest so if you simply want someone to talk to look no further. I also thank you for taking the time to visit my page.
PS: If you are a bada$$ reader, there is a hidden code throughout my profile. It is an easy one for some... If you can find it and put it together send me a message with the code!
To leave you with a quote of encouragement.... Hack life.
