I have had the same self-summary for almost a decade. Things you
did your freshman year of college don't really hold up after you
I am myself; I have put up with my antics and lunacy for so long I
am not sure which flaws are most important to point out, or which
traits I should brag about.
I am a total peter pan syndrome.
I am almost certainly addicted to video games, and information (my
bouts of insomnia might be caused by visiting wikipedia).

I'm a work in progress. Just returned from a summer internship in
Chattanooga, and am taking a full course load at UAH to finish my

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being random and lucking out. Entertaining people. Dodging and
evading questions. Being nonjudgmental (at least, externally
I have this incredible ability to say the exact wrong thing at the

I really enjoy the Berserker series, which was mostly written by
Saberhagen. "Der Vorleser" by Bernhard Schlink, even if it is
soft-core porn (UPDATE: That's The Reader
for you kids who prefer
your books in movie format.) Lately I've been reading, or trying to
read, books that i was supposed to have completed in school. And
they're usually too difficult or depressing to really call my
favorite (it took me 5 months to finish The Jungle. That book is

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the Internet, gaming, freedom
, fresh air, sleep (I don't know
why I need this, considering how little of it I get), and good
running shoes. I think in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the hell everyone is jumping on the gluten-free diets. Did
everyone suddenly go allergic while I wasn't looking?

I find it upsetting that so many people seem unhappy with either
their direction or lack of direction in their life. If you don't

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Fridays are errands day. That said, I would love for a typical
Friday to include a craft beer or two, followed by a relaxing
evening either playing video games or being mildly social.
But typical hasn't happened in a long while.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I don't really hate people. I just tend to distrust them.
I'm terrified of dying alone.
One of my exes described me as follows, "complex, distant, and

maybe not complex, more like obfuscated. She also called me a

I live with my parents. Free rent makes me a happy camper,
but a sad panda.
