Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, my name is Eric! My friends call me Eric.
I'm a wilderness firefighter with the DNR and work at Huntington
doing ACT tutoring for high school students. I just finished a term
with the Conservation Corps last year as well - that was definitely
I worked at the Minnesota Zoo's butterfly garden a few summers ago
and basically got to work with butterflies and moths all summer
long. It was super fun!
Let's see, I also recently got into motorcycling and have been
working on fixing up an '83 Honda CB750 - absolutely love the bike
and am falling in love with riding!
I'm also a gamer at heart. Along with that I absolutely love
computers... I really should be a computer science or engineering
major or something but I find myself working in natural resources.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to figure out how to make a career out of conservation -
haven't quite figured that out yet.
These days I mostly work, keep up with friends, and go to the gym
to pick up heavy things and put them back down again.
I also plan to continue hiking and canoeing as I like to do, and
maybe get involved in the Boy Scouts again to hike the mountains at
Philmont a few more times. When things are a bit low-key, I hope to
become somewhat of a film buff - I've always loved movies. Who
knows what else?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting along with others and taking it easy. I'm always on good
terms with just about everyone I meet, and while I can be a little
reserved when first meeting someone, I'm quite social among
I also started weight training at the gym a few years ago, and I'm
really making some progress!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a pretty straightforward person, you'll usually get what I'm
all about within about an hour of meeting me. That said, I guess
you'll probably notice either my dry sense of humor or how
laid-back I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. I read these books
obsessively back in high school - killed my grades from reading
until 4 in the morning on school nights. Clive Cussler and Bernard
Cornwell are also authors I like.
As for movies, I have quite a few. I'm a huge fan of Christopher
Nolan as a director, as I love Memento and Inception. Besides that,
I like Avatar, The Shawshank Redemption, Gladiator, Aliens,
Sunshine, and The Mummy. Actually I love just about any movie, even
(especially) the bad ones.
Music - where do I even begin? I listen to just about anything.
Just ask and I can probably make a few recommendations - I'm kind
of a music junkie. I've been called an extreme music hipster
because indie music is apparently too mainstream for me (I'll just
roll with it).
Mexican and any kind of Asian food is amazing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oh man (can't really come up with a unique answer on this one, so
brace for generic). I'd say my friends, family, computer, the gym,
my motorcycle, and the outdoors.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Probably about how cool space is. In case you're wondering, space
is REALLY cool.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either hitting the gym, chilling with friends, or doing absolutely
nothing at all - the three best ways to spend Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross is probably the best thing on
Earth and I watch it all the time.
