My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's list some semi-random facts about me:
-I don't like to dance around issues. If I need to talk about something, I'm going to bring it up without any fanfare. I don't care if nobody else wants to talk about it, if it's important, we're hashing it out.
-I'm rather easily defined as a nerd/geek/whatever. I have a box full of board games (Arkham Horror is a good one, as is Eketorp, for reference), I play Magic (I'm drawing back from it though), lots of fantasy and/or science fiction books, some video game systems collecting dust (unless there is a really good game that just came out), and I like to play some D&D with friends on a Friday night. Kind of covering all of the bases there, aren't I?
-I've been defined as "straight edge without being a dick about it" (I don't drink or smoke), which I took as a compliment; I've never seen the appeal of either, but I try not to insult/judge/condemn those that do since it's their life, not mine.
-I'm rather organized on the whole. I can't stand putting off important things (which is different from saying that I never do so), and try to keep my affairs more or less in order. Not a fan of needless clutter, either physical or otherwise.
-I'm rather terrible at being social since I'm so goddamn picky about who I hang out with. It's actually a bit of a problem.
-I hate being late to anything. I'm the guy that's 20 minutes early to everything, minimum, and I appreciate it when people respect my time in the same way I do theirs.
-I find it easier to make large sections of text in list format (obligatory mention of own writing style in a self-summary completed).

For people who enjoy this sort of thing, according to the Myers Briggs test I'm an ISTJ, and in the Enneagram test I'm a 5w6. I figure that, while tests like these are not 100% spot on, they do get a lot of the broad strokes, so go nuts I guess?!?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Lots of things! I'm attempting to find a good job that will eventually lead to technical writing, trying to figure out if I should go to graduate school and attempt to get a master's degree, and teaching myself some programming and HTML.

This is to say that when I'm not working I'm on the computer.

Other than that I just try to make sure that I manage to hang out with my friends while I can. I don't plan to be around here forever, so I gotta hang out while I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think that I'm moderately competent at anything physical or spatial: Building, breaking, fixing, lifting, directions, cooking, anything that involves my hands or imagining the overall shape of a thing or place. I've also been told that I'm good at this (a friend claimed that when I eventually had kids, I'd be the dad making a tree house from scratch).

I'm also told that I'm good at explaining things, but I don't know about that. I like to think it's true (I'm an English major, it comes with the territory) but I've just never seen it come into play.

Things that I'm really BAD at:

When I have a task I need to do that's not essential I lose focus easily (I'm starting to wonder if the internet was such a great idea. It's gonna turn us into ADHD focus-less zombies within two generations).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People keep mentioning my voice. I guess it's noticeable? I've asked my friends and they tell me it's deep, and I remember an older man telling me that I should be a singer since I'd sound like Johnny Cash (I don't think that's true at all, but when an unknown old man tells you something like that you remember it, damnit!).

I've been told I should go into radio announcing, and a friend who had odd hearing due to an accident had to tell me to quiet down a lot since my voice resonated a lot more than anyone else's (or something like that).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot of fantasy (The Name of the Wind), enjoy good movies (Shawshank Redemption), and listen to video-game / nerd-related music (The Protomen). I also read Homestuck, a webcomic you should also read if you have a few free months to throw away. Those are the top of the top.

No, I'm not writing the long list of every entertainment I've experienced in the last five years; I like those things up there that I just listed more than any other; if they don't help you narrow it down, then look them up online and extrapolate from there.

Also, right now I'm listening to The Mountain Goats on an endless repeating cycle. A lot of his songs have this happy yet spiteful vibe, it's cheery but there is pain. It is a mix that I can relate to.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Things I could never do without:
(By Eseldorf)

Friends. No, seriously, I've lived without friends before, and I hate it. I'm rather terrible at making friends, so whenever I do find some I have to do what I can to keep them at least a little in my life.

I think I would be fine without computers or the internet, assuming everyone else was deprived of them as well. Don't get me wrong, I LIKE them (love even), but I also yearn for the days when we memorized shit and really valued information, instead of just having everything at our fingertips. Now everything is free. Everything is simple. Nothing is sacred.

The accumulated stories of all who came before us. The myths and stories, from the Norse or Greek myths to my own family history, to great works like Beowulf and Paradise Lost to modern fiction. These shape us and how we think of the world, and I love it.

The independence to make my own terrible choices. Man, I've made some bad choices in my life, some of which I regret (and most of which I don't), but nothing beats knowing that I've got nothing and no one but myself to blame.

Sarcastic answers to questions. (/sarcasm)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Games I want to play (board games, RPGs, video games, etc etc).
-How much I don't want to make dinner tonight.
-How good dinner is going to be after I buckle and make something fantastic.
-The seeming deterioration of the human ability to learn.
-How much I really hope that some plan of mine really pans out.
-The inevitable deterioration of human sight due to the fetishian (sp?) of glasses.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...attempting to unwind, hopefully with a friend or two, playing some games and shooting the shit. I'm not the type to go out for a night on the town; I prefer the company of friends I know and like to hordes of the unknown.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
After all of the hype, I expected to really like the new My Little Ponies cartoon and have to deny it all the time, but after watching a few episodes I just don't see the appeal of it. It's not bad per se, just not worth watching. That said, I'll watch it with a friend if they feel like it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
We can end that sentence one word earlier. You should message me. Talk to me, bring up a topic and we will discuss whatever. Let's both talk to someone random on the internet!
