I'm just a guy. I'm trying to make my way through this world while
maximizing both my happiness and the benefit/harm ratio I impart on
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently in a state of flux - migration if you will. For my
entire life thus far, I have primarily been awarded (read: paid) to
simply be somewhere. The task I was performing and how well I did
it was always much less important than simply showing up and
filling the void in the schedule. I want to get paid to actually
*do* something instead and I'm working toward making that
I'm a big fan of a good board game or card game and I really enjoy
spending time with people that way. Climbing on an indoor wall is
my favourite way to stay in shape, but I'm also a fan of pretty
much any activity which calls for a swim suit by default.
I’m really good at
My biggest strength lies in looking at a problem and gaining an
understanding of why it's a problem. If the problem is one that can
be solved by a computer, I'm also very good at constructing a
program to automate that solution.
Also, dealing with the heat. Seriously, if the temperature never
dropped below 25 degrees Celsius that would be just fine by me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I speak very quickly, but (usually) enunciate enough such that the
words I'm saying don't get lost in the shuffle.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Sword of Truth series is by far my favourite read. However, any
well told story about a fantasy world involving a consistent system
of magic will likely provoke enjoyment from me.
The Matrix trilogy (yes, the whole thing) remains my favourite
movie experience to this day, though Inception gave it a run for
its money and Cabin in the Woods definitely gets an honourable
mention. What I like to get from a movie is a fun, enjoyable time
for two hours which leaves me with something to think about after I
TV is how I spend my zero-effort-required time. As such, I usually
enjoy a lighter, funner experience, but if it makes me think or
feel something, that's always nice too. I do tend to enjoy
something that has a running plot I can follow and I avoid reality
shows (e.g. Survivor) like the plague. I also have to mention
Doctor Who here since I marathon watched all seven seasons and
never felt a boring moment.
There's very little music I actively like (notable exception: Lady
Gaga's "Edge of Glory"), but there's also very little (outside the
rap and heavy metal genres) that I dislike. I'll show a preference
for something that I can sing along with and that tells a
Picture a vegetarian. Now reverse the eating habits. You're pretty
close to my palate right there. One notable exception, however, is
that I definitely enjoy a good, cheesy pasta dish.
The six things I could never do without
There's really only one thing I could never do without: my mind and
the way it processes the world around me. Absolutely everything
else (outside biological needs, which this question has to ignore
in order to be useful) are things that I have previously lived
without, do not currently possess or could imagine a situation (no
matter how unenjoyable) that I could continue after losing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm actually looking for as I move forward. Also realizing
that I probably don't know then hoping I'll be able to find it as I
continue to live my truth in the present moment.
Why are most of my match questions answered privately? I want to be
able to take the time to get to know you in person instead of
knowing everything about you before we meet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dealing at the poker table in the local casino (or perhaps the boss
decided to have me on a different table instead, but it's usually
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like wearing clothing - I am always nude unless some
external entity (below comfortable temperatures or unreasonably
prude society) forces otherwise of me.
You should message me if
You should message me if my profile has made you feel like I might
be someone you'd like to meet and get to know.
Also: I always reply to a first message. That unknown limbo between
that first message and its reply is never enjoyable.
