Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I haven't updated this in a while. I'm 22 and graduated with a
bachelors of science in Mechanical Engineering from the University
of Tennessee Knoxville. I'm comfortable where I am in life, and am
currently seeking employment. I plan to return to school within a
year or so to work on my master's.
Hi! I'm 21 years of age and a senior in mechanical engineering at
the University of Tennessee Knoxville. Classes are usually
difficult and I find myself lacking in the time department more
than I should, but I'm managing. I hang out with my friends on
campus as much as I can, but its difficult since I live off-campus.
I am a fan of meeting new people, but being in engineering classes
is somewhat limiting (total of 4 females in all of my classes this
semester). I'm not sure what I expect from this site, but I think
its more adapted to meeting new people as opposed to something like
facebook. Facebook is useful for keeping up with people you already
know. Shoot me a message.
On a side note (for parties concerned) I had the beard while I was
in Europe (in May 2012) and it comes and goes as often as I get
bothered to look nice or top being a caveman. I am in no way
attached to that look xD
On another side note (for other parties concerned) I don't
intentionally creep on anyone's page if you notice me visiting. I
wind up really bored throughout the day, and seek relief from the
internet. Sometimes I find myself watching a video while idly
poking through this website. If I appear to be a particularly
enthusiastic visitor it probably means I've started typing you a
message, but then lost my train of thought or generally forgot how
to start a conversation. This happens often, as the space inside my
dank basement and the area beneath my car are not ideal places to
keep the rust off my social skills. Forgive me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the last three years I've been working on my bachelor of
science in mechanical engineering. I try (and often fail) to
balance education with video games and a social life. After I
graduate I plan on seeking employment. Further education is an
option, but it depends on where I end up! Also I really should get
back into shape. I played soccer, tennis, and ran cross country at
the same time during high school, but stopped when I started
college classes. Sometimes its hard to get motivated though :D
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I played competitive tennis for a long time, and I consider myself
to be adept. I also enjoy soccer. I played on recreational teams
throughout high school and into freshman year of college.
I'm pretty good at video games as well.
Academically I do well with biology as well as physics. I'm not
such a huge fan of higher level mathematics.
I also have a car hobby, so I consider myself fairly handy when it
comes to those things.
The first things people usually notice about me

Sometimes there is a large furry animal with a death grip on the
lower portion of my face. (the beard)
My eyebrows and my hair don't match.
I have blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoyed the "Wheel of time" series and then moved from that to
the "Malazan Book of the Fallen" series. Both are fantasy series.
Other than that I did read all of the Harry Potter series as well
as some Clive Cussler books. Add select Tom Clancy, Stephen King,
and Micheal Crichton books to that list. I have been inspired to
read things of higher intellectual caliber, but generally all the
things I read are for fun... and I don't usually think of classic
literature as "fun". I've got a ton of Calvin and Hobbs collections
as well as Shel Silverstein collections as well. They're in my
"rainy day" pile.
As for movies, I really liked "Goldeneye". I also thought the lord
of the rings saga was well done. "Ip Man" and the original
"Ong-Bak" were phenomenal martial arts movies. I do movies other
than action. I have inflicted "Mystery Science Theater 3000" on
many of my friends over the years, and I have loved every minute of
it. I don't actively seek animated films, but I cant say I don't
usually enjoy them when I go. "Chick-flicks" I'm more wary of than
most other types of movie, but honestly a lot of them are better
than people (guys) make them out to be.
I don't really watch regular TV shows that much. I watched all 18
seasons of the British Top Gear though. I find stand-up comedy
fairly entertaining as well. Recently I've been getting back into
anime. I watch and enjoy a lot of the popular shows, but I don't
actively follow any of them.
If I watch more than 5 seconds of a csi show I have to finish
I'm not picky on food. I've been known to experiment extensively in
the kitchen to both disastrous and delicious ends, and if I
actually follow a recipe I'm not half bad at the whole cooking
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm going to try to list 6 things without justifying them... but
it'll be hard. Everyone who reads this stuff is going to judge me,
and therefore I tend to want to explain myself...
IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER and I'll finish when I think of more
4. Days when you have nothing to do
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This changes on a yearly basis, but currently I've got my eyes on
the future. I really need to get in gear and line up some job
opportunities as well as finish school.
On a less serious note, I tend to scheme up ridiculous ideas for
whatever events are coming up. I tend to get really wrapped up in
whatever gets put in front of me. So if there is a project, party,
or planned event coming up I tend to think about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually at home playing some games with my friends. If something is
going on I'll venture outside, but I have yet to be clubbing or
barhopping. I've been known to go sip a beer or mixed drink at a
party, but I don't seek parties as an excuse to drink. Movies are
also an acceptable Friday night outing as well as late-night car
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't like to think that I have anything terribly private, but if
I do I certainly wouldn't broadcast it on the internet. That's a
recipe for terrible things.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to have some form of (hopefully) reasonably entertaining
conversation. I usually talk with pretty much anybody, but if I
don't reply take no offense.
