I'm the guy you see sitting in the corner of a coffee shop reading by himself on a Saturday afternoon.
I'm the guy standing in an empty parking lot at 3AM, trying to take the perfect photo of a shopping cart.
If you pull up to a red light and the guy in the car next to you is rocking the fuck out and singing along with the radio, that might be me.
I'm the guy who's been awake all day, but only really comes alive when the sun goes down.
I'm the guy who goes out of his way to go places that nobody else does.
I'm the guy who will spend an afternoon picking out the Crystal theme from Final Fantasy on the piano.
I'm the guy fascinated not with what's IN the box, but with how I'm gonna open it.
I'm the guy who looks up Howard Taft on Wikipedia, and then four hours later is reading about string theory through connecting articles.
I guess that's a good start.
Soooo, I guess you could say that I'm what happens when a computer nerd grows up and gets respectable (but not TOO respectable). These days, my job consumes my life 5 days a week, and on weekends I'm often left wondering what to do with myself. I just graduated from school about 8 months ago (at writing) and I'm utterly confused with what to do with all this free time that I suddenly have. Thank god I'm in one of the biggest and craziest cities in the world. Now that I'm in and settled, I'm exploring as much of Los Angeles as I can.
I've never been without friends, but despite that I'm still quite comfortable with going solo. If my friends don't want to go hit the bar on Friday night, fuck 'em, I'll go alone.
I thrive on mental stimulation: I love a good book, film, or album, and I really enjoy engaging conversation. I'm not the guy to play devil's advocate, but I love taking a conversation to places it doesn't usually (and maybe shouldn't?) go.
A lot of people tell me that when they first met me, they thought that I was a conceited asshole, and I'm still not entirely sure why. I'm guessing it's because I'm usually the quiet type around new people, and I guess that makes them uncomfortable. Maybe they think I'm sitting there, silently judging them. It just takes a while for me to get totally comfortable around new people.
One reason for my silence is because when I DO get comfortable around people, I tend to swear a lot, and my dirty / edgy sense of humor comes out, and some people find it a little off-putting. Sooooo I usually try to keep that under wraps until I know them a little better.
I am self-aware, rational, and awesome
