Self-summary? Wow, that's pretty general...like most people, I
suppose I'm a complex, multi-faceted person. While I'm attracted to
the image of myself as a logical, rational person, and I may
come-across that way initially, I'm really very introspective, and
at the end of the day, driven by emotion. I value thoughtful
people, not necessarily academic intellectuals (though if you are,
awesome, good for you) but I mean more on a philosophical level. If
you're not bored yet, good! we'll probably get along. That isn't to
say that I'm serious and melancholy all the time, I like to have
fun like anyone else, I just enjoy talking to non shallow people.
INFP on the meyers-briggs thingy.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I work full-time doing SQL/App Dev. I'm also working on a
degree in software engineering.
I’m really good at
Listening, empathizing, connecting with others on a human level. I
also like to think I'm a good writer and a passable singer.
The first things people usually notice about me
First impression, people usually think I'm quiet.. I'm really not,
it just takes a little while to get to know me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
In fiction I *love* "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, of course
Tolkien's stories are classic, and "Hitchhiker's Guide to the
Galaxy" is fantastic. I'm a fan of Orwell as well. Also, I like
some poetry, Edgar Allen Poe is a favorite.
In non-fiction, I'm a bit all over the place, but I do like
European History, and anything that makes me consider new ideas or
philosophy. Camus' "The Myth of Sisyphus" comes to mind.
I don't watch alot of Movies, not because I don't like them, just
because it's like a whole vast world that I have yet to explore. I
really can watch almost anything and find something to like though,
horror, romance, Sci-Fi.. I'm a big fan of Tarentino's movies as
I tend to end up watching TV series on netflix 3 years after it
becomes popular..but, as far as series, my all-time favorite show
was "Scrubs," I also liked "Arrested Development", "How I met your
Mother", "Game of Thrones"(of course), "The Walking Dead", and
really almost anything HBO has put out.
I have a pretty eclectic taste in Music, I will listen to literally
anything except like hardcore rap. On a regular basis I most listen
to rock, metal, prog/operatic rock, and 90's/early 2000's ska(yeah,
I know, lol). My favorite bands are Muse, Pink Floyd, Nightwish,
Tool and Reel Big Fish.
Food, once again, I'll eat almost anything, my favorite is East
Asian food though.. not only Sushi or Dim Sum, but a good
Vietnamese Pho or Thai Curry or Korean BBQ..yummm. I'm pretty open
to try anything really.
The six things I could never do without
I imagine this is excepting the obvious like food and water,
1. My Kindle (lurrveees it)
2. The internet, of course
3. Cooking (seriously, you don't realize how awesome it is to be
able to make your own foods till you try it.)
4. Good blended-malt Scotch :D
5. My Car...can't do anything in this state without one
6. Writing (I think it literally keeps me sane, getting my thoughts
You know, thinking about this list...it's actually amazing how many
superfluous and wasteful things we fill our lives with. It was hard
to come up with six "necessities."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The meaning of life.......seriously I do...I know, cheesy, common
answer, but it's really the most fundamental aspect of being human,
we can consider our own mortality.
On a typical Friday night I am
At my favorite bar with co-workers, or at a concert, or trying to
think of something profound to write/perusing netflix.
You should message me if
Anything I've written intrigued you, or you're bored, or you feel
like it...really you should just message me, I only bite when asked
to, I promise. :P
