My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I know who I am and what I'm about. I only have one life, so I take the best care possible of my body and pursue my interests as if my life depends on it.

In the meantime, I'm crafting awesome things and making more animal friends than a Disney princess.

And, I'm keeping an eye open for a lady to share the intellectual side of life with. If you're looking for deep conversation or have an interest in the currents and strange attractors beneath all the steel, masonry, and screens, let's message.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a member of a running club: http://www.tacomarunners.com. We gather every Thursday at a local bar/pub/tavern, run 5k back to the start, and socialize afterwards in between labored gasps for air.

Going to school, and interning, for computer hacking, to build to something with mathematics (cryptography? game and simulation programming? delta-one finance? all three?), if not an actual mathematics degree.

Finding a career where I can apply my Business Admin degree and/or future math/tech degree.

Making pottery (see below). It's kind-of a big deal.

Generally conquering this life.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making friends with all the animals (see "emotional intelligence" below).

Awesome bygone pursuits:
i. book binding!
ii. making things out of leather. THINGS.
iii. carpentry. Reclaimed furniture at the Pottery Barn? That's me.
iv. whittling beads and figurines.
v. ceramics. I'm amazing at ceramics! People actually buy my stuff and rave about it like there's strobe lights and techno.
vi. people give me compliments for my drawing. Some of those people are superfluously talented artists, for God's sake!

Understanding how things unfold. Reading "between the lines;" in writing, in speech, in life. Understanding things on several levels, not just the literal.

HIGH FIVES! I've won lifetime achievement awards and foreign heads of state as confidants thanks to my high five skills.

Emotional intelligence. It was a conscious decision followed by a metric tonne of effort, but I've developed empathetic skills described as 'preternatural' by people I've been close to. Having "gotten out of my own head" for a few years now, it's easy to spot people who still can't (or won't) get out of theirs. And how much you know yourself definitely correlates to how much you know others.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...if I'm wearing a kilt, then the kilt. I almost got in a fight with a German national in London because of it.

If I'm sitting down, then my penmanship. Like, crazy-good. Regular, legible, and compact as hell.

I look like Colin Firth. Or Lawrence Olivier. Or David Hewlett.

The male version of Resting Bitch Face...
Girl: "You have a really intense stare."
Me: "I'm thinking."
Girl: "Oh, well don't think too hard lol."
Me: "Lol, it's perfectly safe. You should try it some time."
I should mention I can make some spicy repartee.

I'm proportioned about the same as an American black bear/tug boat/brick/luchador.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Like your mom, my musical tastes are all over the place. At any given time, I'm mentally editing music videos with these tracks:

Wes Anderson's films are godly visions, and I'm always good to watch anything of his. Hell, I'd watch his dogs for him. Quirky indy films about people finding meaning or creating it will usually get an impulse watch out of me, so Be Kind Rewind, Defendor, and Super are close to my heart.

When viewing The Lord of The Rings, it shall always be the extended edition, and it shall always be in one sitting.
So say we all.

Once, I was asked 'Star Wars or Star Trek' by a coworker who busts chops as a hobby; I busted his with "Battlestar Galactica Redux." End of line.

TV shoes? Size 14 Havana Joes.
TV shows? Anthony Bourdain and Mike Rowe are godly angels. I was (still am) pissed Backstrom didn't make it past the first season and Top Gear was cancelled. Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Musketeers, Wilfred, Arrow, those shows I'll sit down and watch. I like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones really just because my friends do, and I need to throw them a bone every now and again.

Outlaw Star, Battle Angel Alita, Toppa Tengen Gurren Lagann, and Attack on Titan stand out with hot-blooded aggressive passion.

Books? Neal Stephenson. Other favorite authors are Robert E. Howard (creator of Conan the Barbarian) and Dan Abnett. I guess I like Science Fiction/Fantasy above other genre fiction, but only if it really makes me think, or introduces me to a new idea.

The other occupants of my bookshelf are the Discourses on Livy and two different translations of The Prince by Machiavelli; some general books on Stoicism along with those books written by Seneca, Epictetus, Marsonius Rufius, and Marcus Aurelius; some on mathematics (including my college textbook), some on Aikido, a lot on Business Administration, and a lot on Computer Technology.

My favorite videogame is Linux, followed by Lumosity and Excel. Gears of War is a cinematic work of art. Planescape: Torment was beautiful. Skyrim was great, but it needed fewer flat areas.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Nobody can take from me the things I can't do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How everyone uses Meyers-Briggs (INTJ etc.) even though it isn't meant for personalities and isn't even consistent.

The German language. Why?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgRJjLkYApI
Because when it's spoken by this paragon of chinliness, it's hard to not want to.

Awesome names for my future children:
Nemesis,
Valkyrie,
Morrigan,
Banshee, because you just don't f**k with someone named Banshee.

Massively complex story plots which, put together (because everything I write I put in the same narrative), would tax the best chart-making software.

Actual chart-making software: http://www.thebrain.com/.

How it's been a long road to follow, been there and gone tomorrow, without saying goodbye to yesterday. Are the memories I hold still valid? Or have the tears deluded them?

Maybe this time tomorrow, the rain will cease to follow, and the mists will fade into one more day. Still the road keeps on telling me to go on. Something is pulling me, I feel the gravity of it all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Of course I am, why wouldn't I be?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I know the name of a vast elder being. To know it's name is to have the modicum of power over it necessary to maintain its slumber. I must think of this being's name constantly, for it's great and terrible name is too vast for a mortal mind to process, much less remember while saying it, and if I forget it's name, it will awake. :(

I fantasize about becoming Jeddak of the Kurds. Or the Sudanese.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
…if any of the following apply:
You like guys who wear kilts.

You subscribe to Stoicism.

You greet new coworkers with outrageous aggression, viz.:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhv8XoOA-Io.

You like working out &/r. have an active lifestyle.
