My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I haven't decided whether I'm an extremely quiet person who can get rowdy on occasion or if I'm entirely too rambunctious all of the time but have corralled myself under a calm mask. Too much figuring involved to know the real answer. I think I just build up a lot of energy really easily, but I also use it up pretty quickly when I'm around other people.

I'm a relatively laid back person who is generally okay with just flowing along with whatever is going on at the time. That's not to say that I'm not capable of throwing out an anchor in the flow of time every once in a while to accomplish a task. When I do find something I want to achieve or work on, I'm usually pretty good about planning everything out and getting things done correctly.

I take life at a very slow pace. I don't like to rush into things or really do anything at all without putting a lot of thought into it first. It also takes me a surprisingly long time to warm up to people. It's not like I'm not friendly. I just generally let people come to me first because I feel like I'm bothering somebody whenever I approach them for anything at all.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I'm working in the high school that I graduated from as a substitute teacher. It's been quite the eye-opening experience. High school kids are even lazier than I remember being when I was a student. That's saying something considering I essentially skipped an entire two years of school. Okay, so it was more of a medical thing instead of me being too cool for school.

I actually had the opportunity to teach a class of my own last semester. I'm pretty sure the experience killed off most of my interest in pursuing an actual career in teaching. Of course, I was dealing with freshman kids during their first few months at high school and was teaching a class that would probably be a heck of lot more useful for seniors (preparing for college and careers), so it probably wasn't representative of most teaching positions.

I went into substitute teaching right after I finished my final semester at Ivy Tech which was a year and a half ago. I definitely wish I had gone for more than just an associate's degree in General Studies. It doesn't help out for much other than getting into another university to get a real degree.

Honestly, if my transcripts had not been sent out a little too late, I would probably have rushed into some kind of translation career, which I may not have liked. I happen to be quite good at taking language classes, but I'm not sure I really have it in me to become really entrenched in any given language- Spanish in this case. My instructor insisted that I do it, but I never really felt it.

I'm in the process of looking to buy a home. It's kind of fun looking around at all the various houses in your area. I have no idea how anyone could have done this without the internet as a resource. Thank goodness for MIBOR and Zillow.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
mediating arguments/conversations between people. I'm really good at interpreting whatever message a person is trying to get across and kind of translating that over into terms the person they are talking to will understand. That and my incredible levels of patience are probably the only things that make me good at my job.

learning things. I am a really quick learner and pick up a variety of things very easily. Of course, I constantly need to refresh my skillset or I'll end up forgetting how to do things and have to relearn it all from scratch. I probably became such a quick study to make up for my impossibly bad memory.

I learned how to make jewelry, build houses, take photos, play the piano, and make computer programs in my senior year of high school and I was good at it all for the most part. Unfortunately, I can't do much of any of that now. Need to try to get back into it, I guess.

I'm also quite good about helping people out when they need it. I can cook as well. Of course, by cook, I mean I can follow a set of directions to create an edible meal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to be unusually quiet a good portion of the time. I was known as the Silent Sub the entire first year that I started guest teaching. It's not like I don't open up eventually though. I'll just never become the center of attention. Well, as long as I'm paying attention to what I'm doing.

When I finally stop thinking and just let loose, I'm actually pretty darn charismatic and I have no idea why that seems to be my default state. For some strange reason, people seem to come to me to talk (random folk) whenever I'm just sitting around somewhere. I suppose it's because I don't really brush them off like a lot of people would. What can I say, I actually do enjoy getting to know people.

I usually get quite a few comments about my eyes as well. They always come at the most random moments too. Like, someone will drop what they are saying in the middle of making a point just to make a comment. Really odd.

My handwriting is atrocious. Like, completely terrible. Worse than a doctor's, in fact. However, my cursive is still a million times better than my print. When writing in print, I can sometimes leave up to an inch of empty space between letters in a single word and I have absolutely no clue as to why. It's better if I just write in cursive (easier on the hand too). Why would people even notice my handwriting in the first place? Well, I guess I'm just used to the whole school environment where I usually have something I'm working on out in front of me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As much as I am into entertainment, I hardly ever remember anything about it once I have finished consuming whatever it may have been. Lyrics, passages from books, and movie quotes really don't stick around in my head very long.


The Black Company series (still in the middle of it, but it's been a great read so far)
A Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones on HBO)
The Catcher in the Rye
Uncle Tom's Cabin (one hell of an emotional book that was)
Of Mice and Men
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
The Harry Potter series
The Hunger Games series
stories by Shirley Jackson
everything by Tamora Pierce (my favorite author)
random books that I find in the library interest me 95% of the time


The Prestige is probably my favorite movie of all time. Of course, I love all of Nolan's work.

Huge Johnny Depp fan. Dead Man is my favorite movie that he has starred in.

Wait... I totally forgot about Forrest Gump. That has to be my top film right there.

Actually, I've been lying to myself this whole time. O Brother, Where Art Thou? is my absolute favorite. No, for real this time.

Just about everything. Seriously, I love movies in general. I'm like the opposite of a film critic- it is all good to me. The only movie I think I could say I really disliked was Julie & Julia. The previews looked interesting, but I just couldn't get into it.


Face/Off - It's essentially Project Runway with special effects and it is fantastic.
Breaking Bad
Game of Thrones
Spartacus (Man, from a crappy first couple of episodes to one of my favorite series ever. What a journey that was.)
Raising Hope
Arrested Development (I have Pop Pop in the attic.)
Parks and Recreation
Modern Family
Bob's Burgers - I only started watching this in the third season, so I'm quite glad it has been picked up by Adult Swim. It's freaking hilarious.
all kinds of other random shows on cable
Just got Netflix, so it looks like I'll be catching up on a lot of supposedly great series now. It seems like TV shows are so much better when you can watch episode after episode. Things flow together so much better that way. Orange is the New Black was freaking hilarious.


Classic rock
Black Sabbath
The Who
Led Zeppelin
Classic music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s in general.
Rap from the 80s and 90s.
Just about everything Jack White does including the White Stripes, the Raconteurs, and the Dead Weather. I love both of his solo albums, Blunderbuss and Lazaretto. A nice mix of musical styles there.
The Black Keys
Foster the People
La Roux
Cold War Kids
I have no problems listening to the 'Top 40' or whatever it is they play on local radio stations. I'm not one of those people who are constantly hating on mainstream music.
Not a big fan of metal or country, but I do like bluegrass and folk, The O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack is fantastic.
Classical music (even though I'm not too familiar with a lot of it)


Salads of all sorts
Most fresh fruits and vegetables (I could gnaw on raw veggies all day). Celery is a common one that I don't particularly enjoy though. Such a strange taste.
Cheese (with everything)
Chicken (all types)
Steak (well-done sirloin preferably)
Not a big fan of seafood, but I will eat fried shrimp/clams on occasion. I also like grilled/boiled shrimp.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This may or may not be an entirely serious list.

1. Good pillows/a fan for when I am sleeping. I need to feel cool and comfortable in order to go to sleep. I also like it to be quite dark, so I typically sleep with a pillowcase tied around my head... Yeah, kind of weird now that I think about it.

2. Something to read. I read constantly. Not just books either. I'm talking street signs, warnings on bottles, stuff carved into tables at public parks, etc.

3. Internet. Totally shallow, right? I mean, I can go without it for long periods of time, but I need to come back to it after a while. It just gives me an influx of new stuff to look at/catch my interest. I would end up being so bored if I couldn't quickly/easily look up stuff to do. I am considering doing away with this when I get my house though. For at least the first year.

4. Boxers. Can't do whitey-tighties. Not. at. all. Not the biggest fan of boxer briefs either.

5. Shirt. I don't understand how people can go shirtless so often. Maybe I just need to tap into my Matthew McConaughey-side more often.

6. A private bathroom. Yep... that's nasty. I just can't handle public bathrooms. Of course, I don't mind sharing with a select few; I just don't like the ones that are open to everyone in the world.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why I wasted two years in college pursuing a degree in General Studies. Literally any other degree would have been more beneficial. I guess I was just too afraid to specialize.

how redundant saying 'You're Welcome' really is. I mean, I still say thank you and the like, but I don't like to respond to it. The 'Thank You' is usually given in response to something else, so I don't see why the additional phrase is needed. You do a task for someone and they thank you for it. Bam. Done. Nothing more needed. Not that I think being polite is pointless. No, far from it.

how weird common things usually are or how awkward certain words sound if you end up saying them a whole lot. I also anticipate going completely gray for some reason. I guess I just like the way the few gray hairs I already have look compared to the color of the rest of my hair.

why my facial hair grows in so poorly: Well, I let it grow out the whole three months. Let's just say I can't grow a freaking beard. I shaved that crap off immediately after reaching my goal. You can see evidence of that awfulness in the picture tab.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually at home reading or watching a movie. I much prefer doing things throughout the week/on Saturday mornings. Of course, I am a total night owl so I'm rarely awake on Saturday mornings.

I really only go out and about when someone else asks me to go do something with them. That hasn't happened in a while though. I have a bad habit of not talking to my friends or just people that I know unless they talk to me first, which kind of stops after a while of me declining to do things. Also a bad habit.

I'm kind of bad at this whole 'being people' thing, I guess. Oh well, it is what it is.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think I talk out loud more often when I am alone than when I am out with somebody else. I don't really know why I do it either. I guess I just prefer to listen when I'm around other people.

I have an absolutely awful memory. I've had a load of head injuries throughout my lifetime that have really destroyed my memory for the most part. I guess that is what you get when you have a rambunctious older brother and wild cousin.

I also get embarrassed really easily. I even feel embarrassed when something happens to somebody else, even if I don't know that person at all. When I go out with a group, I tend to feel responsible for everyone in that group's actions and behavior.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you've read through my profile and it seems like I would be entertaining to talk to. If you've seen me check out your profile a few times without messaging you, it doesn't mean I might not be interested. I'm just really bad about starting conversations. Don't be afraid to message me first. It's not overly aggressive, I promise.

you would like to have a conversation that is more than just a word or two back and forth. For someone who generally doesn't talk very much, I tend to be very verbose in writing. Yeah, I know it means I use more words than necessary, but what can I say? Oh... a whole lot apparently.

Oh, I also filled in all the quiz questions like two years ago, so they're all lacking a lot of the experiences I've had in the last couple of years.
