Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I regret not choosing a wittier username.
I'm just a big kid who was forced into growing up. Now, don't
mistake that for saying that I'm immature--I have a full time job,
a car, a master's degree--but I've still got my head in the clouds
searching (in vain?) for something more to life. I can be
as goofy or as serious as the situation calls for, but I like to
make those I'm with feel nice.
Update: I'm wanting to get out and explore more.
I'd love to go on adventures either around Austin other urban areas
(urban exploration, anyone?!) or get back to nature and do some
hiking or camping. Unfortunately my group of friends typically
prefer to stay inside, which is great and all, but I'm wanting to
branch out (ha! Because nature and...ugh, I'll see myself out)
more. If you want an adventuring partner, feel free to drop me a
Also, I now totally understand why everyone says that trying to
write a self-summary is pretty damn hard. Trying to encapsulate
your personality and how you interact with others in a bite-sized
blurb seems either difficult or...dissociative, like I'm writing
about someone else entirely just because I'm trying to be
objective. I also probably shouldn't try to write about myself when
I'm exhausted, haha.
Note: I'm not as boring as my profile makes me seem :(
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working as a Rehabilitation Specialist for people on parole. My
username pretty much shows how having a "big boy" job has drained
what was left of my creativity.
Also, I've got a Master's in Counseling, so that's pretty neat.
Edit: I'm now working on collecting clinical hours to get my
license to counsel. Watch out, I'll be like James Bond...except
that, instead of killing, I can talk about feelings and junk.
Update: I am now a licensed professional counselor. So, that's
neater than the above statement.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, I'd like to think--I'd be pretty bad at my job if I'm
lying to myself. I also like to pretend I'm not half bad at
writing, even though I don't do that much these days.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I don't have much time to read for fun anymore, but I tend
to prefer horror or fantasy for fiction, and theology, mysticism,
and therapy-related books for non-fiction.
Movies: I'm a horror nut. That being said, I'll watch just about
anything as long as I feel I can connect with the characters or the
storyline. Comedy, action, thrillers, etc.
Music: Metal. I mean, I can tolerate most anything, but I
definitely prefer metal and rock music.
Food: I can find something to eat most anywhere I go, lol. I don't
really have a preference.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Physiological needs being met (food, water, air, etc.)
2. Safety needs being met (shelter, access to resources,
3. Love and belonging
4. Self-esteem, confidence, and respect
6. Pyramid diagrams
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I would do if I spontaneously developed superpowers; what I
would do in the zombie apocalypse; who would win in a match, Harry
Potter or Harry Dresden; what kind of world I would create if I
were God; whether objective morality exists; whether life has
inherent meaning; what I'm going to eat after dinner; whether the
cute girl at work or at Starbucks thinks I'm cute.
Also about work and junk. I can go from escapist fantasies to
boring, mundane crap in a second.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Right now, I'm decompressing after dealing with a week's worth of
clients and progress notes and deadlines. I'm trying to get a
Dungeons and Dragons (Pathfinder, if you want to be technical)
group together soon. I'm the life of the party, I tells you what.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've had pigtails on more than one occasion.
Yes, I did look adorable.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
For anything, really. I'm always looking to talk to new people and
try out some new things.
So, apparently OkCupid thinks I have terrible manners. That is
bananas; my manners are lovely.
