I'm a Portland native (East Side) living in Eugene while studying... something at the University of Oregon. I'm working on a General Social Sciences major, though I was recently given a compelling argument to go into CompSci. Invariably, I'll be living in Eugene for another few years.
Other than on a stage, or when I'm with my friends, I'm kinda shy and introverted. But something about the lights, stage and action brings out my inner rock star. Still, it takes me a little bit to warm up to a stranger. If I don't know you very well, I might be a little quiet, but get me talking about something I have a lot to say about (music, writing, nerdiness/geekiness) and I might not stop XD
I'm working on cultivating new friendships at this point in time, but casual dates with interesting people also sounds particularly appealing. I don't believe there are such things as "leagues"; there is only mutual attraction. We're all different, so why standardize and stratify?
As the stresses of life plague me and my social circle, I'd like to meet someone light-hearted and carefree- at least on the surface. I want to have -fun- with somebody. "Only one condition: it has to be amazing." Once said a certain doctor...
I write music constantly, and I love playing my guitar(s) every day. My favorite band is The Mars Volta, though I have many other second favorites including Rush, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Hot Water Music, Bear vs Shark, At The Drive-In, The Decemberists, The Dear Hunter, Biffy Clyro, and Muse. I would jump on the chance to see any of them in concert! I'm also currently working on putting together a band of my own. Feel free to check out my demos at soundcloud.com/guitboxer, or for more info about the band, go to facebook.com/rightlaneendsrocks.
I fancy myself a "survivalist" cook, but I'm decent at culinary improvisation. Spaghetti, casseroles, burritos, burgers, salads... I love to put peppers and spice into food and I order extra jalapenos on my subway sandwiches. I have an XBOX 360 and enjoy COD and Halo about equally. Ask for my gamertag if you'd like to play a few games. I also recently created PSN and Steam accounts (though both my roommates are moving out and taking their PS3s with them), so hit me up for those handles as well!
I wouldn't call myself blessed with the gift of gab. I'm easily impressed by others with silver tongues. Mine attempts to sabotage my sentences whenever it gets a chance, so I try to put a lot of thought into what I say before I say it. Try as I might, it still doesn't always come out in the right way, order, or occasionally, language. When all else fails, I try to make jokes and inject humor into nearly every situation. I'd much rather laugh about something than to be deadpan all the time.
TL;DR- I guitar, I art, I geek, I blend.
Uh, yeah... Oh! There are more tabs!
