My self-summary
"I'm calling out to you, to the crowd. The mass. The sea of faces.

Let me find, just one other, who still believes in love."

Hey! Here I am, your not-so-average guy. I love to learn, to question things, to break the rules a bit (that's a whole conversation in itself), and thinking out-of-the-box; but that's not to say that I don't enjoy the little things too. Either way, I go to college part time, work full time, and still manage to find time to... dream. Yep.

About myself: People have told me (and I would only hope that it's true) that I am a very kind and "understanding" person, but that I can be serious (perhaps exceedingly serious) at times, too. Basically though, if I were to summarize myself, I would say that I actively ensure that I "do not allow myself to have a static personality". I am sort of captivated with the idea of "change", if that makes sense to you.

Also, people sometimes comment about how I "think too much" ...but, really, I would have to think about that before I could agree. :P

All in all, I have committed myself to be... diverse. To adapt, to evolve. I would conjecture that change, of any sort, must always begin by questioning established patterns (that is, your OWN patterns).
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time and do college classes along with a couple investment endeavors on the side (though plans are not always as clear-cut as I would like them to be).

....so many things become so interesting, as you learn how they work; as you understand them (story of everyone's college career, no doubt).

Right now, I am leaning toward a career in education (i.e. teaching). In a general sense, I like to teach. Plus, I really have come to love college so much, the idea of not having to leave makes a career in education a win-win for me, right?!
I’m really good at
Fixing things, for one. I was a mechanic for a few years.

Number two: Listening to people. I would say that I am pretty good at getting people to talk about themselves (Just because I have a sort of, altruistic outlook).

Also, let me just say that I love the outdoors, and I am pretty big fan of "outdoor activities". Running, hiking, canoeing, fishing. I'm up for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
...that I make them notice themselves! :P

Also, I'm sure that my generally "reserved" nature is also something that they notice; but then, my disposition is always dependent on my surroundings. I can be all kinds of things, really!

Then again, when I asked a close friend to tell me what she first noticed, she replied: "That you're a smarty-pants!"

Thanks alot. -_- lol

(Yes, that's right, my best friend is an "Alot": http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/04/alot-is-better-than-you-at-everything.html)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of classic stuff, but mostly I do audio lectures, on various topics. My most recent reading, though, was "Walden Pond".

My best read yet though, I would have to say, was Atlas Shrugged. It was harsh, but realistic at the same time! (and quite the antithesis to my own views, which made it all the more interesting). Actually, because of time constraints, don't really "read" too much, I take in almost all my books via audiobook.

Other books I enjoyed:

Lord of the Flies
Brave New World
Enders Game (and reading the rest of the series now)
Speaker for the Dead (From Ender's series)
Catch 22 (Minus a few chapters)

Some Favorite Movies:

The Great Gatsby
Life of Pi
Her
The Matrix
Princess Mononoke (of course)
The Princess Bride (had to list the other Princesses, lol)
Hero (With Jet Li)
Cats (The musical)
Mulan
Book of Eli
The Cube
The SANDLOT!
What Dreams May Come
Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

...really, a ton. I think that list will give you an idea of the range, though.

Music:

I mostly like the 60's and 70's. That was really such great time in music; but I'm always looking for good modern stuff. My favorite guys right now are Daft Punk, and MGMT.
The six things I could never do without
1. Transhumanist hopes. XD
2. Truth.
3. Change.
4. Learning.
5. Someone to listen to all my nonsense.
6. The one who decided they wanted to hear it all. (wink)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Pfft. I think about EVERYTHING. Physics, morality, economy (capitalism and communism mostly), psychology, history, social trends. Maybe I need something more "mundane" to think about, or maybe, just need to think less.

Funny thing is though, when I talk this stuff over with company, I always end up doing more listening than talking (but then hey, that's how you come out of it with new ideas).
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking at stocks, or at homework, or at meetups, or at what kind of local event I can possibly run off to, if I can find the time that weekend.

You should join me, yes?? :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to frolic in da fields.... like, nao.

Also, that I write some poetry.

BTW, here is one of my favorite Allen Poe poems. The narrator is amazing, but some say he sounds "scary", so be prepared for an intense voice.

You should message me if
I am one of the most benevolent and understanding persons you will meet. You should message me if you are really looking for an Epic kind of love.

...the kind that they tried to tell you doesn't exist.

OH YA! And message me if you are the kind of person who types a lot of explanations under your questions!!! That too.
