Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
~~~~This profile was last edited in September, I haven't been
online much in a while. Things change; I need to update a few
things, or everything~~~~~
When I find something I'm passionate about, I seek to accomplish
it. I enjoy challenging myself and broadening my horizons. I take
pride it what I accomplish well, and am oft unsatisfied with poor
work on my part.
At first I can be quite and shy, but after warming up, I'm friendly
and funny, and enjoy (and employ) different types of humor. I've a
good head on my shoulders, and can relish a good adventure.
Though I don't like taking pictures. I can't explain why, but I've
rarely seen a photo of me that I really like.
Occasionally I find the random influence to try out new things.
Once I thought of going to culinary school, learning as many
languages as possible. I also had a friend who helped me become
very interested in archery (he actually made arrows; it was pretty
sweet). It's always fun to try something new; who knows what you
might end up being passionate about.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I grew up in the Twin Cities. Born in Minneapolis, and moved to St.
Paul when I bought my house. I've worked hard the last 7 years of
my life as a musician and food service employee.
At the moment I'm studying organ at a music college in Germany.
Unlike a semester abroad, I am actually fully enrolled, and will
continue there for a few years. I'm back in Minnesota for the month
of September for friends and family, but I'm also curious to get
some new people, and hang out, enjoying the cities once again.
There are many places old and new that I want to visit while I'm
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Awkward conversation making.
Are you still reading?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My dashing good looks, stellar body and muscles, handlebar
mustache, and cunning wit.
More realistically: whatever the opposite of the above is. Except
the wit thing; I'll keep that on the list.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Shows: Breaking Bad, How I Met Your Mother, South Park, Daily Show
with Jon Stewart, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Psych, Tatort (German
Films: The World's End, Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Pirates of the
Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes (1&2), Dodgeball, The Green Mile,
Shawshank Redemption. I also enjoy Pixar Films (such as Monsters
Inc/Uni), and the animated geniuses of Miyazaki.
Audibles: Bach, Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Bach, Chopin, Bach,
Brahms, did I mention Bach?
Edibles: eggs, pizza, and apples are my top three favorite things.
I also enjoy Italian, Mexican, and Sushi, and have what I consider
a fetish for the hot sauces at Buffalo Wild Wings.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Friends and family
4. Glasses (either beverage holders or visual aids, take your
5. Money (I hate to say it, but it's true; I have financial
6. My hands (seriously, someone screwed up my thumb this year, and
two weeks without being able to play was incredibly painful...
coincidentally, also painful when I was impatient and tried anyway)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I will find myself in a few years. I hate the question "where
do you see yourself in..." because there is so much that can happen
in a short amount of time. You could meet someone on the street:
change. Work relocation: possibly unexpected. Moving to Germany for
school: had an idea, but to know that I would end up in the city
that I did? Had no clue.
At the moment, I'm thinking about what I want as my first meal when
I get back to Minnesota.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Private? hm... Don't know. Instead let me entertain you with an
embarrassing sort of lost in translation moment, and teach you a
bit of German in the process:
When I successfully found a place a place to live with a group of
people here, I sent the girl who was moving out a thank you email,
and I mentioned that if she would like any help moving out, I would
gladly help her.
Funny thing is: the noun for "Move-out" is 'der Auszug', which is
more typically used in this context. I however decided (and didn't
know any better at the time) to use the equivalent verb,
"ausziehen". This delightful verb has multiple purposes. Such as
"to pull out, extract, draw out, move out." However, it also can be
used for "to undress". So I unintentionally offered my professional
garment removal skills for the sweet gal who was forfeiting her
room to me, should she feel inclined to accept.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have the courage to meet my awesomeness in person. Brace
yourself for it. But if you don't want to get to know each other
over breakfast, or lunch, or coffee, or drinks (I'm very flexible
with the venue), writing buddies would also be nice :) Messages are
always welcome, and always returned with a response, usually
written with love, but now and then I spare it.
Feel free to ask whatever you want. As I look around in other
profiles, I think so myself "oh, that's right, I do that too; I
like that also; hm, I forgot about that". There's more to know than
just what's stated on a profile. Ask away!
