I'm one of those guys who just likes to take things easy. I don't stress over anything small, and I like to keep things simple. I like to spend time relaxing at home, but if there's fun to be had outside, I'm there. Not really a party-goer kind of guy, but I do enjoy myself quite a bit in loud, lively social settings. I aim to see as much of the world as I can within my lifetime. I want to try out as many "extreme" things as I can, like skydiving. Basically, I want to live before I die.
I'm admittedly a bit of a geek, as I enjoy things like video games and anime in my spare time. I also like some sci-fi and fantasy epics, both on the big screen and in a book. If that kind of thing is right up your alley, then I think we're off to a good start :)
As an aside, I have a bit of a weakness for bright-colored hair :)
What I’m doing with my life
Searching the job market to become an airline dispatcher; originally wanted to be a pilot, but ultimately decided the lifestyle wasn't for me. In the meantime, I've recently become a crew scheduler, which is definitely a big step towards my goal.
I’m really good at
Planning big trips with friends. I always want things to go well on such trips, and somehow, I've always managed to make it work.
Also editing writing. Usually spelling and grammar, but also small tweaks to improve flow. A little bit of polish goes a long way :)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever it is I'm reading/watching/playing at the time, where I'd
like to travel in the future, what I'll do with my friends next
time we hang out, just random stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually working, and if not that, hanging out with friends, and if
not either of those, relaxing at home in front of my computer
and/or playing PS3
You should message me if
You want someone to binge-watch Netflix with on a quiet night, you want someone to play in multiplayer Smash Bros/Mario Kart/Halo, or if you want to do active stuff like go-karts, trampoline parks, escape rooms, and so on.
Or if you have bright-colored hair, lol.
