I'm going to leave 'self-summary' blank. I think the remainder of
the sections should flesh it out a bit more.
I’m really good at
I'm very good at coming up with random crap on the spot when
someone asks a stupid question.
Example: When I was younger, I had to pick my sister up from
school. I took her to my mom's house and she noticed that the front
flowerbeds had cabbages growing in them. She asked "Why are there
cabbages in the front yard?"
"Because it's illegal to grow them in the back yard."
"Oh? Why is that?"
"It stems from The Great Depression. People ate more cabbage then
since it was cheap, fed a lot of people and held for a while so
less was wasted. The Federal Government passed a tax on cabbage
growth to boost revenue and mandated that all non-farm-grown
cabbages be grown in the front yard so that tax assessors could
easily count them and tax accordingly."
And she believed it.
I'm very good at math, nearly a savant, and in some ways it is
quite distracting from daily tasks.
I'm good at being the hero for friends, and sometimes this makes me
the villain in my family.
I have the ability to remember most things with 95% accuracy as to
content and context. Like a stenographer lives in my head.
I'm probably good at other things, but listing too many seems a bit
like I'm boasting. I'm a bit more down to Earth than that.
The first things people usually notice about me
Standing at 6'8" (203 cm) most of the time I hear "Wow, you're
really tall." I can only assume that this is the first thing people
notice. Other than that, I walk with a cane due to a knee injury
from a few years ago. The cane was made by a friend, and seems to
garner equally as much attention.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is a section for another day.
The six things I could never do without
3.) Laughter and Sarcasm
4.) Thoughtful conversation
5.) Music and Art in all of its many wonderful forms.
6.) Storytelling, the oldest of traditions in mankind.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Typically I spend little time thinking unless I'm nose-first in a
good book. I'm a doer, which sometimes comes off as either
initiative taking or rash, depending on outcome. When I am
thinking, I am often trying to expand my knowledge into new fields
of study. Recently I've been enjoying the psychology of pain and
why it becomes difficult to express to others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing whatever I feel like doing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The most private thing I'm willing to admit is a toss-up really.
Not for importance reasons, but I feel they are both equal in how
much I dislike the two about myself.
1.) I have a bad habit of using a comma splice in sentences, and
hate the MLA format for its arbitrary rules on comma usage.
2.) I've disowned 4 members of my family in less than 6 months for
them threatening to physically harm my child, or being on the side
of the people who said such things. C'est la vie.
You should message me if
There is no prerequisite for why you should message me, only that I
love engaging in conversation, especially debate on hot button
issues. Election years tend to overwhelm my keyboard.
