Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! My name is Alex and I am currently a third year student in
college. I am currently enrolled for a Computer Science major, but
I am looking into switching to Fine Arts, preferably for animation
or character design. I was raised Presbyterian but I am an atheist,
which I do not classify as 'religion,' regardless of OkCupid's
drop-down options. I don't have anything against religion or
churches in general. I think a lot of churches benefit their
communities in some way, but I personally do not believe in God or
any other higher power. What I'm really looking for right now is a
competent partner with a great sense of humor. I love to laugh and
can make light of almost any situation (for better or for worse). I
enjoy satire, random humor, irony, sarcasm, and intellectual humor,
but not so much slapstick. For those interested, I am a very strong
INTP on the mbti scale. As for the number of questions I've
answered on here, I took the statement "You'll never run out!" as a
challenge. Turns out there are precisely 3760 questions... I ran
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Still figuring that out... I love drawing and playing music, so I
would really like to find some sort of career that incorporates one
or both of those things. I play in my school's bands (marching,
jazz, concert, pep) and I spend a significant amount of my time
with my friends, whether we go out or stay in. I'm currently
seeking employment to help pay off loans and cover rent while in
school, but I don't really stress out over finances.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Puzzles, playing music, and drawing. I love solving all sorts of
puzzles, from jigsaw puzzles to brain teasers. I own fourteen
different Rubik's cube type puzzles and I can solve all of them
without much effort. I also enjoy number puzzles such as Sudoku and
Ken-Ken. I play several different musical instruments, although I'm
most proficient at saxophone. I enjoy learning new instruments, and
I have some skill in playing piano, bass, and clarinet. I really
enjoy drawing, although I know I still have a lot to learn. I would
love to get into comic or movie story-boarding, or even character
and object design for games or movies.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea, I'm not people. You tell me!
If I had to guess, I would probably say they first notice the way I
dress. I almost never get cold and I usually wear shorts and a
t-shirt year round. I love the feeling of cold air and snow being
on my skin. If it's raining or significantly below freezing, I'll
occasionally wear a hoodie, but that's really just to prevent
myself from hypothermia and the likes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My favorite books would have to be the Dune saga. I enjoy the
extended universe that Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert have
created, but the original saga by Frank Herbert is still my
favorite. I like all sorts of sci-fi, fiction, and fantasy, and
I've been known to even pick up educational books from time to
My favorite movies are usually a mix between comedies and
action/adventure. In general, I enjoy actors such as Jim Carrey,
Steve Carell, Owen Wilson, and Matthew Broderick. Similarly, I
enjoy shows with a good sense of humor. Occasionally laugh tracks
annoy me, but if a show is written well enough it's really not an
issue. Among my favorites I would have to include Malcom in the
Middle, Futurama, How I Met Your Mother, and Psych.
In terms of downtime music, I grew up on They Might be Giants,
resulting in a love for alt. rock. I also really enjoy ska (but not
so much reggae), classical, smooth jazz, some heavier rock, and
select electronica (mostly Daft Punk, never really got into dub
Food is a tricky one... I really do not like fruits, or even most
vegetables, for that matter. I love all sorts of breads and
cheeses, 2% or higher milk, most red meats, and cereal. I also love
starches and grains, such as potatoes and corn, and have a pretty
sizable reputation with my family for eating way more mashed
potatoes than everyone else... combined...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Vital organs and other necessities aside:
• The Unknown
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future, possibilities, the way things work, and why things are
the way they are. I love observing and learning, and I have
definitely been known to get lost in thought.

pizza rolls. You should message me if you'd like to talk, meet up,
or if you'd like to ask me any questions!
