My self-summary
The name's Matt. I'm a recent transplant to Burlington, readying to start graduate school in the fall at UVM. I like graphic novels, video games, and films, and may or may not be really proud of my obscene collection of films. I'm working on becoming a therapist, a profession I'm naturally suited for, having been there for countless friends to listen to their problems and helping them find solutions or insights about themselves.

I'm looking to be in a serious, long-term relationship that I would hope lasts the rest of my life. I'm done with a lot of what people call "the game"; I'm not looking to chase after someone, and I'm not looking to beat around the bush when it comes to being interested in someone. If I'm interested in dating you to get to know you, I'll just come out and say it, and I would hope to get an honest response. I'm looking for someone with similar moral and artistic qualities that I have. However, at the very least, I am always looking to make new friends.

"What are you?" - Socrates
"This moment." - Dan Millman, from Peaceful Warrior
What I’m doing with my life
"Today I strike out on my own!" - "Toy Soldiers" by Carbon Leaf

I recently graduated Southern Vermont College as Salutatorian, with a Bachelor's in Psychology. I'm working as a substitute counselor at a mental health organization, and in the fall, I will be attending graduate school at the University of Vermont for their Social Work program. For hobbies, I sing, participate in various forms of gaming (from tabletop to board or video games), and I read fairly regularly.
I’m really good at
I'm really proud of my ability to sing, which I have done for several bands, but currently just practice solo. I'm also great at celebrity and character impersonations, and I do a bit of writing from time to time.
The first things people usually notice about me
Apparantely, people notice the enthusiasm I approach everything with. I tend to really get into whatever it is I'm engaging, whether it's a stimulating conversation or a game. That, and apparantely I have "eyes that smile".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favorite books are "The Hobbit", the entire adventures of Sherlock Holmes, "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior", "The Neverending Story" and Stephen King's "It".

I love movies, and love to critique and analyze them. My top five films of all time are "The Neverending Story", "The Dark Knight", "The Matrix," "Good Will Hunting" and "Ghostbusters."

Lately, I've gotten a lot more into TV shows than I used to. Favorite shows include "Dexter", "House, M.D.", "How I Met Your Mother" and "Scrubs".

I enjoy listening to hard rock, 90's grunge and nu metal as far as music goes, for the most part, but I do branch out to other genres. Some of my favorite bands are Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Three Days Grace, and Shinedown.
The six things I could never do without
I. Music. It's one of my many forms of personal expression, and a great way to connect with other artists or myself.

II. Nature. The quiet beauty of a rolling green countryside, lush with trees and vegetation, instills a serene sense of peace and tranquility within me.

III. Laughter. Amusing others - and by association, myself - is something I cherish to no end, and reminds me that I can spread joy.

IV. Dreams. They give the imagination a good mental workout, and can help motivate oneself to acheive their goals.

V. Family. I enjoy spending time with my family and keep in touch with them on a fairly regular basis.

VI. Animals & Friends. I'm a social creature by nature, and love to spend time with others or pets.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems; give me work." - title character in "Sherlock Holmes"

I spend a lot of my idle time daydreaming, thinking of things I'd like to do someday, stories that I'm working on writing, places I'd like to go to, skills I'd like to learn and planning how to do random, absurd things, whether it's a prank or just some exercise in being silly. I analyze and mentally pick apart characters in books or movies, and conjure up funny ideas of things that I would look back at and laugh about.
On a typical Friday night I am
These days, I'm either working or doing homework. Sometimes I like to stay in and watch a movie or play a video game, but I can also be found hanging out with friends in various places. I can usually be convinced to do something outside of the box, as I'm always looking for some sort of new adventure to go on.

"Take me out tonight" - Mimi, "Rent"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not really an introvert or an extrovert. You'd think you have to be one or the other, but I'm really not. I used to be a really shy guy, but now, I know how to project myself with confidence without making myself feel vulnerable. However, it's taken me a long time to develop that skill. I still retain some introvert qualities; if I'm quiet for a moment, it's usually because I'm thinking of an appropriate response.
