My self-summary
I'm on here looking to get to know a some people in this town. I've lived in many parts of the country since I finished school and have always found things to do, but Fayetteville has me stumped.

I'm a big nerd; I work as an engineer with a very relaxed, but very cool job. I'm originally from the North, so I like my tea unsweetened and Patriots football.

I generally consider myself to be intelligent, albeit more related to facts and books, and a less with people. I generally prefer to be around a small group of people, and very close to the friends I have.

I've lived for extended periods of time in Vermont, Charlotte, and Boston, and brief periods in D.C., Denver, and the Midwest. I would like to travel to Europe and East Asia in the future.

I hate it when people write things on here like, "I like to laugh and have fun." because everyone has a different definition of fun. What I do for fun is generally play games, either video, board, card, or barroom trivia. I love kayaking, and would do that every weekend, weather permitting. Dinner, drinks, and conversation is fine evening in my opinion. My sense of humor, I would describe as "no-holds-barred", everything from innocent and light-hearted to crass (think Cards Against Humanity).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an engineering contractor with the DoD. My dream job would be to work more closely in the aerospace industry, however. Sometimes I act as an on-call cable, computer, and electrical repairman for friends and family in town.

Planning to buy a house come summer/fall. Certainly seems a lot cheaper than paying rent in an apartment. Then I can also get back to learning drums.

Dieting and exercising regularly to shed the pounds I gained since I moved away from Boston and stopped playing football every weekend.
I’m really good at
Building things, from basic carpentry to metal-working to electronics, it's all fun. I'm a decent cook, but we can all use a little more practice.
The first things people usually notice about me
From comments, it's my voice with a hodge-podge of accents mixed into one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read very often, but the few books I have read and love are: World War Z, Chuck Palahniuk's earlier works, H.P. Lovecraft, Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way

I'm a big movie guy, I prefer psychological horror/thriller, action, sci-fi, and select comedies. A quick sample would be: Boondock Saints, Fight Club, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Die Hard, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Seven, Pitch Black, Aliens.

I watch very little TV, the few things I watch I get via the internet: Dexter, Walking Dead, Burn Notice, Breaking Bad, Archer, Firefly, and cartoons from the 90's, like Batman and X-Men.

My musical tastes stay primarily in the realm of rock: The Clash, AC/DC, The Beatles, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Ozzy, Avenged Sevenfold, Linkin Park, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rancid, Pennywise, Streetlight Manifesto, Dropkick Murphys.

I also enjoy classical music and guitar like Rodrigo y Gabriela.

I don't have TV service, so I pass time with video games; I like mostly shooters, RPGs, action, and puzzle games. For example: Mass Effect, Call of Duty, Left 4 Dead, Borderlands, Civilization, Portal, Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Bioshock.

I like cooking, so I like food. I blame my grandmother, who is the greatest cook I know. I love Italian, sushi, and Mexican most. I am best at grilling burgers and BBQ chicken, pasta sauces, homemade pizzas, and seafood.
The six things I could never do without
My family, don't know where I'd be without them; Leatherman multi-tool to fix anything, shelter...

It's hard to come up with anything else because I've lived quite well without things like a car, tv, computer, phone, etc. Even survived a week without food and very little water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I rarely spend a lot of time thinking about one thing for very long. My mind flits about very rapidly. If I'm curious about something, I usually just google it and get information about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Entertaining friends with food and board games. Or, Playing video games on my Xbox. I don't care for nightclubs, and after a full work week, I just want to relax.

However, I would much prefer a few Friday nights out each month.
