My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Foreward: Life is turning tragic daily, and I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to be around. I'm still looking for friends in thee Carbondale area, but I might be moving soon.

Personally, I love reading profiles, especially ones not contrived just to fill space. If it has heart, I read it, because my words have meaning and soul as well. More importantly, I care about trying to understand what you want someone to know about you.
If you are like me, then you may understand my reasoning for not wanting to divulge information that could ruin the desire to want to know one another. Such as:
University graduate, but unemployed
34 year old man, living with and caring for his dying mom
Reads nonfiction, sci-fi, fantasy, Manga, yet none of the Classics.
Listens to predominantly 90's music, but has some eclectic taste for other periods, and definely enjoys nearly every genre; A perfect sound for any moment.
I love Longbranch Café and Bakery, and The Cellar. I frequent both, often to escape the pain and suffering I experience, but also to just get out of the apartment on the not so rough days.

I recently spent a few weeks considering what should happen if I died suddenly. Yet, again, there was just cause. Only a few days ago I had surgical procedure done on my heart, and fortunately for me it could not have gone better. Still, having to make plans just in case something had went wrong made me question not the things I couldn't live without, but how someone else could handle my important things once I passed on. Honestly, I only took care of two things:
Made sure my guitar would find new home where she would be appreciated.
Made all the arrangements for my mom to be taken care of while I recover, and if I wouldn't had survived.

Now I'm up to date with my summary. The only thing left is to mention all the strange pains and bruises I'm seeing and feeling while getting better, but that's just not what I want to talk with new people about. There may not be many conversation starters above or below, but there are a few other than the shit I deal with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being with and caring for someone I love, but is slipping away from me. 95% of my time is spent keeping her spirit up and thinking of ways to keep her here comfortably. The other 5 is spent regaining strength from the above efforts, with a small percentile wondering if there is someone around Carbondale that can handle a guy going through some dark times. If you can handle mine, I'll handle whatever you got going on. Sound like a plan?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Kissing, or so I'm told.
Remaining calm when I should be freaking out.
Singing (at least I think so ;)
foot massage
being too serious
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a big guy with a beard, and a recently added Mohawk. I wish I could say it's my charming personality...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music concerts
Netflix Bob's Burgers
My Towel if you don't know, then Google it
comfortable shoes because heels hurt
Foreplay penetration = finale
Fire -water - burn
my Washburn six strings
laptop because I'm old school
Coffee = life
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When I have time for less serious thoughts
• what I would sing if I ever wanted to go to karaoke
•what kind of show could I put on if I volunteered at the local radio station
•I need to pick up my guitar more often
•I wish I could have a dog

The more serious stuff
•What I'm going to do
•where am I going, how I'll get there eventually
•where can I find a job ASAP where I can make enough money to break free from the gravitational pull of Southern Illinois.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I can I'll be down at The Cellar or somewhere else on the strip. Otherwise I'm home reading or watching TV.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I just want to talk to people who can unconsciously make me forget everything but the good things above and come up with some fresh positive adventures or concepts we can work out together for fun.
