I'm an eternal student, a gamer, a nerd, a trance music addict, a classical music lover, a metalhead, a natural redhead, a sarcastic goofball (text is horrible in conveying it), a traveler, a sometime homebody, a lover of nature, a trivia junkie and a movie buff. I'm someone who likes to leave the world a better place than when I entered it.
I like to think of myself as being a nice, easygoing and sweet person, but I'm not afraid to speak my mind and stand up for myself when I need to. I can be quiet and shy when I first meet someone, but I open up quickly once we start talking. I'm very slow to anger and I prefer to solve my problems by talking them out rather than fighting. I love to laugh and have fun, but I do become serious when the time is right.
I'm currently looking for someone nice to spend time with who is somewhat similar to me, but different enough to keep things interesting. I hate drama, playing games and all of those horror stories guys tell about bizarre or irrational females, but I do value a person with depth. While I am eventually looking for a long-term relationship, it would be silly to stay focused only on that and miss out on friendships with other people.
Sound interesting? Send me a message and we'll talk!
For books, I tend to read fantasy, history, science, and so on. I'm currently working on Game of Thrones, the first book of A Song of Ice and Fire, but I'm also trying to get through the Dresden Files series. Some of my favorite things to read are the classics. I'm a Shakespeare nut, and I love folklore and mythology.
I'm all over the map on movies. I tend towards movies that aren't too low-brow, but aside from that, I span a lot of genres. Most of the stuff I watch is sci-fi/fantasy, historical fiction, foreign/independent, or whatever catches my eye. I do have a weakness for old and silent movies, too!
TV shows are similar to my movie tastes. I also add in science and history shows, along with some fun things like Grimm or Once Upon a Time. I'm in the process of watching Supernatural, just started season 3, and Doctor Who is on my list as well. Game of Thrones, of course, is a must.
Music is huge for me, but I really listen to almost anything. I most listen to rock, metal, classical, trance/electronic, Celtic, folk, classic rock and so on, but I'll try anything once.
Like most things, what food I eat really depends on my mood. I enjoy a lot of different cooking styles, and I'm working on being more adventurous after a childhood spent afraid to try new things. I have a lot of time to make up for! My brother is infecting me with a love for Italian food, since his girlfriend is from Milan. I make a mean caprese!
What self-respecting gamer wouldn't have a list of games they play? In terms of video games, I tend towards RPGs, and anything with a good story will catch my interest. A straight hack'n'slash is always good for stress relief, though! Among my favorites are Skyrim, Assassin's Creed, Bastion, Portal and old NES games played on an emulator. I also go for tabletop games. I'm currently in a few roleplaying campaigns, and I love board games like Elder Sign, Arkham Horror, Settlers of Cataan, Ticket to Ride, Zombie Dice, Chrononauts, Dominion, and so on.
I'm also a huge history nerd, to the point where I've started getting involved in medieval re-enactment with the SCA. It's led me to begin reading books and watching films to help me learn about the time pre-1600, as well as begin experimenting with crafts and arts from that period. My current interest is in poetry, clothing and art from the Italian Renaissance.

I also like to collect refrigerator magnets from places I've been to. I'm almost out of space! Suppose I should get a new fridge.
