Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Welcome to the descriptor, like many of you, I hate filling these
things in, but it's all kinda worthless without it, so here it
MUSIC QUE: something Ken Burnsish
I grew up in one of the few larger towns in your wonderful
neighbor: NoDak, a state of small towns. It was nice to live in a
place that was safe enough to let us kids run with a pretty free
reign. The small towns and safety are in a little bit different
situation with the oil boom, but they all seem to be making it
My family has always been loving, accepting, and willing to go out
of their way to help. We are almost always looking for the fun
things in life and finding them. I have two great younger sisters
that are very much superstars in their own right, and I'm very
proud of them both. Just as I am to be the proud uncle to one
awesome little guy and his soon to be sibling. I just wish my
family all lived a little bit closer.
I've been told I'm intelligent, but that doesn't mean I can't do
stupid things. So instead I'm striving to be wise. Something that I
don't know if you can ever fully say you've achieved. I try to be a
good listener and give good, insightful feed back to people, all
hopefully without putting my foot in my mouth. I do know how to
appreciate a slow summer storm, or going camping for a night just
to see some stars free of the city. The little details can be
I obtained a vocational degree in electronics in high school, even
took 7th in nationals through a strange set of events, but haven't
used it much since then except the occasion broken TV or stereo.
I've had all sorts of jobs, from baking artisan bread to master
control operator at a TV station, my favorite by far was working
for a small tree trimming company.
Went a little back and forth with a few different post-secondary
schools back home and in wonderful Colorado! I'm now finally
finishing my AS in chemistry and planning to transfer to the U
I am Inquisitive, Waggish, and Earnest
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to balance full-time school with work and life.
I'm trying to bike more. I was about to get rid of my car this
fall, but I just ended up with a great job where having a car is
key. So again, I'm trying to bike more to offset all that drive
time. I also hope to get out a do a little weekend bike touring
when I can this summer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking tests. Not so much on the studying part...
I'm not a bad cook at all when there is someone to cook for; my
grilling skills are getting up there too. Warm weather please come
Organizing other peoples stuffs.
Researching. Or getting lost on the internet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm tall, blond, with smiling eyes, and having a loud deep
laugh. That is at least what I think they note.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm a nerd when it comes to books, fiction, Sci-Fi and actual
science books, and it's been school text books for the last few
years. I'd much appreciate some recommendations on something out of
my normal range of reading.
I love all sorts of movies, from the Labyrinth and the Dark Crystal
to Memento and A Man with a Movie Camera, any Wes Anderson movies,
more indy films then mainstream, documentaries and anything
historical, oh and of course good sci-fi, and some of the bad, if
its really bad enough to be good.
Music: is a list, it is a long list. A tiny fraction follows
Metronomy, LCD Sound System, Queens of the Stone Age, anything
Britt Daniel does, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, Johnny Cash,
Portishead, Del the Funky Homosapien, Gorillaz, Vampire Weekend,
Scissors Sisters. The list of course goes on.
Food: I love trying things I haven't had, at new places I haven't
been. Most any ethnic food is great. Drinks of all sorts (not just
the alcoholic variety either) are a category by themselves. Though
I could really go for maybe a beer right about now.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
Connection, in it's many forms.
Ginormous flaming balls of plasma to orbit around.
Intelligent, compassionate, reasonable people (so
damn few of you left)
The last I'll leave open for emergencies.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Be a better student!
What the hell were they thinking!
How to be a more intuitive and thoughtful
Past and future, may need to be a little more in the moment
Having a cocktail. No, maybe a beer... crap, which beer?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am almost always working. Saturdays are much better for me, or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
