My self-summary
I always find it funny to write a self-summary. It always feels like a sales pitch. Anyhow...

I am an introspective fellow that enjoys the library as much as I love the sports stadium. To me, a great day would be to play some basketball and follow it up with an interesting book or a trip to a museum.

I prefer seedy bars over upscale ones but feel comfortable with either one. It's just that the seedy ones have a certain atmosphere that can't be replicated.

I have a sense of humor and can be sarcastic at times. I am easy going but not a pushover. I tend to swear but restrain myself from doing so in certain environments.

Since I was a child, my favorite movie has been the Godfather. I learned some valuable lessons from it. For ex., family comes first and always take the cannolis over the guns.

I love to travel. Spontaneous day trips or weekend getaways are definitely a pleasure of mine. I get excited exploring somewhere I had never been to before.
What I’m doing with my life
I have been substituting while I have been searching for an elementary school teaching position. Lately, I have been subbing at a high school for students with special needs.
I’m really good at
* Having a great sense of direction
* Figuring out math problems in my head
* Making meatballs and sauce (gravy for some)
* Planning a travel itinerary
* Losing on a slot machine
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - history, fiction... I get a kick out of visiting the library. I always get a few different books. I have been seeing that I usually take out one history book, one biography and a book of useless information.

Movies - Godfather, Goodfellas, Big Lebowski, Silence of the Lambs, Usual Suspects, Fight Club, Anchorman, Seven, Bridesmaids, Falling Down, Back to the Future, Groundhog Day, James Bond (I prefer Sean Connery), Jason Bourne, Coming to America, Pleasantville, Rocky, Jacob's Ladder, Star Wars, Tarantino films... to name a few... I am a movie buff. If I listed every film, I would run out of space.

Tv - Person of Interest, Homeland, Banshee, Ray Donovan, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Jessica Jones, Daredevil (loving the Netflix superheroes), Gotham, Arrow, The Flash, Sherlock, Luther... These are just the shows I currently watch. There are others that are not on anymore like Dexter, Lost and Magnum P.I.

Music - Rolling Stones, Pearl Jam, Citizen Cope, The National, Brooks and Dunn, Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Radiohead, Elvis, Sinatra, Kiss, Nina Simone, Sade... I listen to a wide range of music. Just about anything...

Food - Italian, Indian, Japanese, Greek, BBQ

I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I could create new memories or my next vacation.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I am out... I am either shopping, visiting friends, singing karaoke

If I am inside... Watching a movie or a tv show on Netflix
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a big fan of the Golden Girls. My favorite is Sophia. That show makes me laugh. Great acting and for the first 5 seasons, great writing. It seems every line was a setup for a joke.
You should message me if
you want to say hello. I am rather friendly. Besides, you'd probably have a better opening line than me. And I say this not because I don't have any confidence... I say this because I really don't have many good openers. But after hearing about some of these crazy messages from other guys on okcupid, I think I am doing OK.
