If you didn't know me you might think I'm really stern and serious all the time, I don't try to look that way it's just kinda my neutral face, but once you start talking to me you'll see I'm kinda a goofy guy, I make a lot of silly jokes to show I'm a friendly, I like to make facetious jokes which I try to make it obvious that I don't mean what I'm saying, so if I say something shocking realize I don't mean it.
I like to have friends come over and chill, I like to do exciting things, but for the most part I'm ok with staying home with people I like. I have a cat named Doug, so I hope you are ok with cats, cause he's my bud.
I realize this is a cliche but I have a hard time describing myself, I like a lot of nerdy stuff, like rpg video games, and I like to collect kitschy things like soviet memorabilia. But a lot of people don't really know that stuff about me, not cause I try to hide it exactly, its just something I wouldn't bring up around people that probably aren't interested , same with politics and economics, I've studied it for the last 5 years, but I try not to get in peoples faces about things they aren't interested in.
other than that, its hard to describe myself because I have a broad spectrum of tastes, I've recently gotten into country because of the guys I work with, seriously country has some great love songs! but I also grew up listening to punk and ska, I also love rap music, socially conscious or G-funk.
all this being said, I can pretty much get along with most people, I try to be very open and accept new groups of people, they don't need to be nerdy or cool or anything, as long as they aren't assholes.
go ahead and send me a facebook message if you want
career path at this point, not sure. I'm working as a roofer during breaks from school, and though I dread the idea of doing manual labor the rest of my life, it's always an option. I'd definitely go into the union if I was planning on spending much time roofing or doing something similar.
However studying politics and economics I would also love to get into journalism at some level, or work inside the government. I couldn't be an economist with my level of training in economics but I am able to imagine economic repercussions of political decisions. I might decide to goto grad school in next 5 years and then I'd have more of an idea of where I wanted to go.
sounding like I understand economics
Also, right now, I'm bald :P Its not just a fashion choice, and its not hereditary. It's also not a huge deal depending on how you feel about it; I have an autoimmune disorder called alopecia areata that causes random patches of hair to fall out. It happens all over my body but since I was 15 I've lost enough hair on head that I had to shave it, probably every 1.5 to 2 years, then it comes back and I have hair for 2 years or so, you can see in some of my pictures I actually lost my eyebrows one time, but they came back, I have a tiny spot on my eye brow right now but it hasn't gotten any worse, so I thought I'd be honest about a "worse case scenario" lol, plus that one of my and my cat is just so cute.
I don't have a bad attitude about it, people who know me never make me feel bad about it, and honestly I have a pretty good shaped head for be bald, as someone who likes ska music, this is common look, but I can't believe how many people ask me if I've been in the marines, not just military, its always marines specifically lol, but hey I'd rather you ask than think it something serious

basically I feel like I can't click with anyone, but here I am trying to anyway, if you knew me in real life you'd probably think I seemed pretty normal, as in you probably wouldn't peg me as introverted, or anti-social, or anything like that, but it's meeting new people thats the problem. Once you get to know me though I'm a pretty nice guy, silly and a little weird, but not in a bad way ;-) so I think it'd be worth trying to get to know me.
dont message me if you think technology is bad, if you think its separating us from our humanity, or that humans should go back to some primitive way of life.
