Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm very laid back. When you discover the inner me, you will find
someone who is intelligent, has an odd sense of humor, likes
watching movies, likes most any kind of music, and is a terrific
listener. I can listen to someone for hours and throw my advice in
here and there. It's almost always good advice as I don't tend to
throw it out there unless it's the truth.
When I say "someone who is intelligent" that often means "guy who
knows something about everything and usually fills you in when
asked". Most people take that one of two ways... either they like
it or they hate it... the biggest proportion being hate it. I try
to change but can't keep my mouth shut!
If you message me and I don't respond right away, that's the shy
kicking in. Please don't assume I'm ignoring you and expect a
message sometime... I work slowly. :)
I am introverted, honest (usually brutally so), and devoted.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in the Auxiliary Services department of a community college
as Systems Support Technician overseeing two POS and one ID card
system and act as liason to the rest of campus IS. I earned my BS
in Applied Information Technology; I graduated May 21, 2008. I
really wanted to get a bachelor's and/or master's in Health
Physics, and I had been pursuing an Environmental Management
degree... but I decided to go with something I was already good at,
instead of something I've wanted to do. And, as one of my best
friends pointed out after a lengthy discussion, "Stewardship
doesn't require a
I finished another AAS in Information Systems Security in Spring
2012. This means I am qualified to sit for a bunch of alphabet soup
exams (A+, Security+, Network+, CCNA, CISSP) but I need to study
most of it again first.
I’m really good at

being a geek. If it's electronic, I can make it work or teach you
how to use it. I tend to give good advice, too, because I don't
throw my hat into the ring unless I think I know what I'm talking
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm big. Very big. I KNOW it's the first thing everyone notices. If
they manage to ignore/overlook that, then probably how direct I am
or my off-kilter sense of humor. I happen to like my eyes too,
especially now that I ditched the glasses, but I have no idea if
anyone else does. :)
I do work on my weight off and on. I've struggled with it my entire
life, pretty much literally. I have good days and bad days and good
months and bad months. Recently, I've been down over 50 pounds and
I'm still down over 10% from a year ago.
I've done three 5K's (walking) so far, and when I was actively
exercising I was doing 5K 4 times a week on the treadmill. If you
can't hack that, you've got no room to be making asshat comments.
Let's try to all get along? We're all human, with feelings.

I don't watch much TV at all. I'm a consummate Star Trek fan,
mostly TNG and beyond, and watch a few episodes here and there
either on Prime or DVD. I loved the hell out of Dead Like Me. I
love Storage Wars and I'm not afraid to admit it. I love science
and engineering shows too... Engineering Disasters, How Its Made,
Worlds Toughest Fixes, etc. and I also like most things that show
up on PBS, Smithsonian, History, and National Geographic.
If it's country, folk, a capella, acoustic, techno, electronic,
symphonic metal, or Irish/Scottish/Celtic/Gaelic/Native American, I
probably have heard it, like it, and listen to it regularly.
I'm a big sushi fan, and I love rice best when it's properly
cooked. I love fresh fruit, especially mango, papaya and
strawberries. I live on cottage cheese and Greek yogurt when I'm
behaving. I absolutely love cheese of all sorts and would have a
hard time giving it up. I love spicy food of all sorts too;
well-spiced food especially (there's a difference between hot for
hot's sake and spice).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Good food and great wine (or scotch... or craft brew).
. I rarely play
anymore (played the first two until I graduated high school) but I
like having them available when I get the urge.
-My computers and the Internet - I'm beyond hopelessly addicted at
this point. I can go a couple of weeks without though - I do like
to disappear into the woods for vacation and I do just fine.
-Pets (cat(s) mostly, but our dogs have mystically endeared

the future. I often ponder just what my purpose on this planet is,
and think/worry about finding my own place and a "career" job. I
also spend a lot of time thinking about the future of our planet.
Are we going to ruin it before I get to have kids or grandkids?

usually at home. The club scene definitely isn't me, and paying
obscene prices for liquor in a bar is something I don't like doing.
I'd much rather get ahold of a friend or two and split a good
bottle of wine or a fifth of Scotch.

Almost everything you need to know is contained between the
delimiters below. If it's not there, ask! I'll probably tell you.
I'm a pretty open person. Part of me being brutally honest means
you get what you ask for.
