My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First, a few quotes I live by:

"Only the shallow know themselves." - Oscar Wilde

"Except for me and you love, everyone's the same." - Rise Against

"..." - Charlie Chaplin

I'm motivated and adventurous, and despite being a software engineer in the finance industry by profession, I'm always hoping to be more of an artist at heart. That's why I'm working on my own software company in my spare time and take up creative hobbies. One of these is the novel I'm trying to write and the other is the rock album I'm trying to record.

I try to be a respectful person because I believe the anonymous internet and the overpopulated city of strange and fleeting faces makes it all too easy for us to be rude and dismissive. I try to love deeply and to find things in the world that are awe inspiring and remind me of my purpose, which is clearly bigger than the midtown office jobs we all slave away at. I try to be a loyal friend, to empathize and sympathize and to show those I care about some form of affection, and to not allow the pop culture ideal of what a man should be to shape me. I like to be silly and make fun of myself as much as anyone else, especially those I feel closest to and most comfortable with. Hopefully my match out there doesn't take herself too seriously either and can indulge in a little self-deprecation from time to time as well. The women I have always felt the most tender feelings for and the strongest bond with have been caring, affectionate, adventurous, honest and open, curious about the world, silly because they haven't lost their best childhood trait, creative and spontaneous but also introspective and philosophically inclined. But above all else I think emotional balance, intelligence and sense of humor are probably the most important traits. I hope to find someone with as many of these qualities as possible and strive to be the kind of man who is worthy of such a woman when I do find her.

This came out longer than I had intended and probably not as humorous as most women want a guy to sound, but it's as honest as I could make it and hopefully that counts for something. If you're looking for a guy who can make you laugh, then I can hook you up with my midget friend... he's hilarious. Ok that was offensive. I apologize to all the vertically challenged folks out there. The content of this last bit does not reflect the opinion of okcupid or its affiliates or even the author who wrote it. I immediately regretted ever having made that statement, but I do want everyone to know that no midg--I mean, vertically challenged people were harmed in the making of this self-summary.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Advancing my career, writing a novel, beach in the summer, skiing in the winter, thinking about how soon I can get back out to europe or south america, friends, family, trying to find the right girl... in a word... chillin'
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first time I went to a shooting range (the only time I went to a shooting range), I shot either dead bulls-eye, or damn near it. With great power, comes great responsibility...
I'd fight crime by night, but superhero costumes make my crotch itchy
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
kind heart
keen brain
I'd love to switch the order of those, but I'd be lying.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Oh wow, way too many to list. All the pulp-fiction-like classics that everyone who's anyone always likes, crash, taken..., the gladiator-like epics, troy, lord of the rings..., the wedding-crashers-style comedies (a shout out to the big lebowski while we're on the topic)... bonus points if you've seen jean claude van damme in blood sport. Books! Way too many. All the classics... I love classics (I'm not uptight, I'm old fashioned... call me what you will, but they don't write like they used to). I'm talking about Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Nabokov, Hardy, Dickens, Melville, Kafka, Tolkien, Fitzgerald, Vonnegut, Hemingway (eh, not so sure about this one). Music! Um... rock, definitely rock, also whatever pop (and some of the hip hop) that's on the radio these days, but still, definitely rock over that stuff. I still really enjoy the old 90s grunge (I can't believe I'm calling it 'old'), and a few punk rock bands even (offspring, bad religion... nothing crazy), and then lots of newer stuff as well. Plus, of course, there's always the beatles and stones and bob dylan and all that older good stuff. Shows: Californication, Game of thrones, 24 (briefly), prison break (briefly), family guy, lost, mad men, colbert report, john stewart, million dollar listing, millionaire matchmaker (I know, this one should go under the most private thing I'm willing to admit section). My favorite food?? ... Whatever you're making.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I like to break rules so I'm not sticking to 6 things...

I love the outdoors, the beach, and the naturally beautiful parts of the world. The history of foreign places fascinates me. I love a cozy ambiance, and the architecture of old cities. I'll read the economist, watch both cnn and fox news for the entertainment, but also browse the new yorker for its short stories. My favorite time of year is the spring/summer time, because its nice and warm and I get to escape from the city to a lake or a beach or a campfire somewhere. In the winter I love to ski and need to find a way to do it more often. Airports make me nostalgic and road trips remind me of why the people riding with me are my closest friends. Buying more guitars than I could use was an old weakness of mine. I've kicked that habit now.
When i go out i prefer lounges and relaxed places over anything with a line that's wrapping around the block. I'd rather find a place that's hidden and has something amazing about it that few have yet discovered, like a local band that's so sick you can't believe you're listening to them for only a $10 cover charge. Which by the way is really sad because some of these are so good they should be on a global stage and no one really knows about them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Global warming... seriously, when is it going to happen already? I hate these cold NY winters!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either rescuing children from burning buildings, diving into freezing waters to save drowning puppies, bandaging up wounded birds mid sky dive, somalian-pirating the somalian pirates and donating the loot to orphans, spoonfeeding starving artists raw veggies, or rescuing princesses on horseback, clad in my shiny armor.
