My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a huge Seinfeld fan (even though I'm actually normal sized ;-)), so I'll explain my situation with its help. In one episode, Kramer dated a woman in a wheelchair and described her by saying, "She's everything I could possibly want in another human being, ya know, except for the walking." I think this describes me perfectly (except that I'm a man).

I hope I don't sound obnoxious, but I'm everything you want (cue the 90's song). I had an accident when I was 14, but am "normal" otherwise. I have a spinal cord injury, but I have learned how to adapt and cope with pretty much everything and people tell me (quite often) that I'm an inspiration.

I'm happy to answer ANY questions. You will not offend me. I joke about everything (unless I need to be serious), my injury included.

"Maybe we could go somewhere and just eat a bunch of caramels... It's just as arbitrary as drinking coffee."

UPDATE: I've recently been told that it is intimidating to date someone in a wheelchair. If you feel that way, tell me and I can put your mind at ease. I'm approachable, knowledgable, and open. I've been told that I have a calming effect on people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach high school math. The kids are hilarious and heart-warming.

I love learning and I'm hoping to turn the computer science class I'm taking into an advanced degree...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...a lot of things.

I'm good at solving problems, remaining calm under pressure, sharing my feelings, complimenting others, and making people feel appreciated.

I was recently told that I am "a great guy (who is pretty darn funny)", so I've got that going for me ;-).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my smile, my beard, or my sunny disposition.

Maybe how the room got brighter when I entered :-P.

Also, possibly the song I am singing.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) my family
2) my friends
3) love
4) tea
5) cell phone
6) Internet

I'm a little disappointed about the last two, but how did we live before all this technology?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...everything. My brain bounces from one topic to another very quickly. Common topics amongst the bouncing are: movie/tv lines, song lyrics, math, jokes, witty retorts, inappropriate comments, observations, and (of course) women.

"Have you ever thought that there's more to life than being really, really, really ridiculously good-looking?"
On a typical Friday night I am
