Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It has been a while since I’ve updated my profile, so it’s probably
time I got around to it. One of these days immortality will make me
old enough to be cool so I can say something like, “I’m a Time
Lord. I’m from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of
Kasterborous. I’m 903 years old and I’m the man who is going to
save your lives and all six billion people on the planet below. You
got a problem with that?” Until then I’m just… thirty.
I can be a complicated person for sure. I’ve been told I should
grow up but I don’t want to. I like being a geek and playing games,
everything from Dungeons and Dragons and board games, to video
games like Pokemon, Legend of Zelda, and Halo.
I have dreams, ambitions, and goals; I have to keep working hard to
see them through. My dream is to one day have someone in my life
who will be a friend and companion who will share those dreams with
me as well as fill an even deeper gap in my life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m still learning things as I go. I’m still technically a student,
albeit a very slow one at only a few credits a semester. But I’m
using that to climb through a few professional ladders. I always
thought I’d end up somewhere doing something important that
effected a lot of people everywhere. I’m not sure what that is even
now, but I’m still building towards that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I don’t think I’m really good at anything. I like being
kind of the balanced person. As I said above, I’m working on that
“Jack of all Trades” thing and part of that means that I may never
be the best at anything. But at the same time there aren’t many
things I’m bad at.
I have experience in a lot of different fields. I love anything
techie. I work on computers and can tear them apart and put them
back together decently well. A lot of people come to me because
they need to know how to do something on their computer, or to find
out what a certain message means. I work on mechanics too though; I
lie under my car all day long and tinker with it and not realize
how much time is passing by. I’ve been called a fitness nut, but I
don’t think that’s exactly true. I know a good amount about health,
and good foods vs bad foods and do things to try and stay healthy
like commute by bicycle and exercise. There’s a lot to keep up
with, but I get bored working on the same thing for too long.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sadly, if I’m out in public and with my friends, the first thing
people notice is probably that I’m being loud and dorky. My friends
and I will have bouts of character enactments in random places and
get far too into it. After the initial personality shock I work
hard to keep energy levels strong. I don’t deal well with awkward
silences and hate being caught without anything good to say, so I
might keep talking about random things until I find a topic that
excites the person I’m engaging and build off of that. By then
hopefully the other person has noticed something good about me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love so many different stories, like those by Douglas
Adams, Rick Riordan, Robert Asprin, Tad Williams, and also classic
stories such as those by H.G. Wells. Some of the books that come to
mind are Escape from Exile by Robert Levy, At the Queen’s Command
by Michael Stackpole and even self help books like those by Matthew
Movies: In an all out blockbuster movie I like the gritty yet
visually appealing styles presented by Christopher Nolan and J. J.
Abrams in modern movies. Mel Brooks holds a special place in my
heart for just amazingly good and funny movies. Independent and
foreign films such as For a Lost Soldier can also leave a powerful
impression. I tend to be a little critical of movies; I love action
movies but I want a good story with few or no plot holes… It
doesn’t happen too often… James Bond films tend to be pretty decent
with that. I love a good plot twist like in Lucky Number Slevin.
Though one of my favorite serious movies would have to be Dangerous
Liasons; it might have been mostly drama, but it had the right
amount of action and excitement in the form of betrayal to keep you
more than a bit interested.
Television: I watch a lot of BBC Television: Doctor Who, Torchwood,
Top Gear (I’ve seen almost every episode of Top Gear since 2003).
The only real cop show I like watching is the original NCIS. Loads
of anime too, especially classic anime (Classic being that it was
around when I was a kid.) such as The Slayers, Trigun, Fushigi
Yugi, and Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Music: Trance: Most of what comes on After Hours FM especially
XiJaro. Rock: bands like Shinedown, Linkin Park, Apocalyptica. My
geeky fix I get by listening to Radio Rivendell. Also Classics from
Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, and The Scorpions I get into whenever
they come on too.
Food: I could never live in a place where I couldn’t get good
Mexican food. Chorizo, carne asada, carnita adobado, and actual hot
salsa and guacamole! Other than that I love different kinds of
fruit, Jamba Juice, and have a bit of a weakness for carrot cake.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what I want out of life. Seriously, I haven't figured it out. What
is the difference between something that makes you happy, and
something that makes you happy right now? I want to find what makes
me actually happy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Parties can be cool. I like going to a dance every now and then,
maybe once a month or every two months. I tend to throw a lot of
barbecue cook outs and little friendly get togethers at my house
and stay up late watching movies or playing D&D.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've survived being chased by a bear, being hit over the head by a
brick, and falling off a mountain. I know how to take a few licks!
