My self-summary
Taking things one step at a time, trying to figure out life and remember what "fun" is (it sort of vanished through most of grad school).

I tend to be very straightforward and have a "no-bullshit" policy. Needless to say, I'm not into games and subtext isn't my strong point. Those I care about have my support 99.9999% of the time (because stuff happens) no matter how frustrating it gets.

I am a huge animal lover, and have always grown up around all sorts of creatures, but I never had a dog growing up.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching at the community college level. I'm taking a year off before I go for my PhD in sociology. In the end, I want to do a research/teaching split. I really love what I do, trying to push new college students to start thinking critically and show real effort and analysis, and I think that's cool. I'm probably a dork for thinking its cool to get others to think but I'm okay with that. Watching my students grow and learn is amazingly satisfying.
I’m really good at
Being a cat whisperer, watching movies, sarcastic, thinking I made an ass of myself when no one really cares. And texting people total nonsense and random meaningless information.
The first things people usually notice about me
The red in my beard (if its long enough) or the fact that I have headphones plugged in.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Stupidest Angel, Madness and Civilization, I am America and so Can You, Newt Gingrich's Bedtime Stories for Orphans (its a real book).

Movies: The birds, Avengers, the first 2 X-men movies, Ben X, most good documentaries, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, The Wave, Seven Samurai, also B level horror/scifi, particularly from the black and white era.

Shows: South Park, The Simpsons, Once, Game of Thrones, @midnight, Stargate SG-1/Atlantis, Daria and Buffy the vampire slayer. Always Buffy.

Music: I like some old school goth rock, classic rock and roll, garage rock, some industrial stuff etc. Love David Bowie (RIP), Billy Idol, and the Who. Though I'm a rockabilly/psychobilly boy at heart.

At the end of the day I can listen to just about anything outside of rap.

Food: If it is edible I'll try it. If its not edible I'll still probably try it.
The six things I could never do without
My cat, other animals, horror movies, books, toilet paper, and a texting buddy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I would make it I never dropped out of culinary school and was a finalist on Hell's Kitchen (seriously I have a menu planned).

What is next in life and why I never look good in a photo.
On a typical Friday night I am
Normally these days I am home, but from time to time you can catch me at a concert. If you like going to little concerts at dingy bars we will get along.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I actually like the song "Wrecking Ball"
You should message me if
You want to and think we might get along on some level.
You don't like bullshit.
You think you might be slightly neurotic.

You are socially awkward and awesome. Because I am and people who are socially awkward and awesome should stick together.
