My self-summary
I register as an XNTX on the Meyers-Briggs scale. I don't know how much I go for that type of thing normally, but it's a pretty accurate portrayal of who I am. I have to balance my introverted and extroverted sides. I'm typically able to see all sides of an argument, even if I take one over the other, which makes me seem kind of wishy-washy or contrarian.

I have a pet dog that I don't get to take to the park as much as I'd like. She's 8 now, and I've had her for about 5 years. She's an Australian Shepard/Husky mix.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm enrolled at DigiPen, and studying Game Design. It's my 2nd degree (My first is a BA in Sociology), and it's my top priority right now.
I’m really good at
Learning things or figuring them out. I see things happen and try to come up with an explanation.
Picking apart movies. I often like to point out problems they have, even if I like the movie. (I'd be really good at Honest Trailers)
Video games. Ok, that might not be true...but I'm better than most, and I enjoy them.
I'd like to think I'm a good writer! I'm putting a heavy focus on this for the next few years, so hopefully I don't stink.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically, it's probably my smile. I've always been told I have a good one. Personally I prefer my eyes, I have really cool dark blue eyes.

I'm also told I look almost exactly like Blake Shelton. Maybe not so much in my pictures, but in real life. I've been told by multiple groups of people, I used to work in retail and had customers tell me it all the time. This has probably changed since I've grown out my beard, however. It also probably doesn't help that I now live in a part of the country where almost nobody knows who that is.

The six things I could never do without
NEVER could do without is stretching it. Maybe "I would be lost without"?
1) Video Games (it is what I'm dedicating my life towards)
2) Movies
3) A watch
4) a good book
5) Blank pieces of paper and a writing utensil.
6) My dog, Sealy!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to survive the Zombie apocalypse. I mean, can zombies really navigate stairs? Can they swim? Why are they always shown climbing stairs but not able to get across bodies of water? I would say that doggy paddling takes a lower level of motor function than climbing up and down stairs.

Wondering why the History channel rarely shows any history programs. Ancient Aliens is not history...Pawn Stars...maybe a little. I miss the days that they used to show nothing but WW2 footage though.

Wondering why over 90% of the profiles on here use one of these terms: "I'm kind of a nerd" or "I never know what to say about myself" or "I consider myself queer, not bisexual". I don't know what ANY of those things mean...because they don't mean anything. Liking Lord of the Rings doesn't make you a nerd. Nobody knows what to say about themselves, and everyone is "queer"...Kinsey already covered that back in the 40's & 50's.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually doing school work. I'm hoping to change that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes wish I wore glasses. I feel like I don't look smart enough without them...
You should message me if
You want to talk. Don't favourite me, don't rate me, just send me a message...I'd much rather talk, and I'm totally down with the girl making first contact.

You want to go with me and my dog to Marymoore Park.

You know of any good movie theaters/non-asian food joints in the area.

You would like to play a game. No, really, I kind of want to get Mario Kart, but have no one to play it with...and sadly my tears are no good at keeping me company :-(. (yes, this is a joke...at least the part about my tears)
