Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Words time! My name is Nick by the way, so I don't have to keep
forgetting to introduce myself to people and then remembering way
past the point where its proper =p
Where to begin? Video games are pretty much one of the most central
things in my life. The design of them, the stories, how everything
comes together into one cohesive interactive whole. Its been
something I've been obsessed with for most of my life XD Hoping to
one day be a designer. And yes, I know that the job won't be a walk
in the park and will probably be hellish, but its still my passion
and its still something I want to do.
My favorite genre of games is the RPG (specifically of the J
variety, though I've enjoyed some W's, and all manner in between of
A's and S's and even some MMO's (if you understood all that, grats!
We'll get along swell, you and I!)) I'm also a huge fan of Fighting
games, and consider myself well-versed in competitive terms and
know my way around intricacies and details of the genre. Though my
skills don't at all match my knowledge, sad to say XD
Also, anime! Though not as big a thing to me as games, I've enjoyed
quite a few of these crazy shows and movies. I've also gone to a
few conventions and even cosplayed some! Mainly have been to ACen
over in Chicago, but definitely looking to expand my
convention-going when I'm able.
Outside of that? I'm friendly, I love hanging out with people, and
I make tons and tons of lame jokes. If you can't handle lame humor
with the occasional funny thing, then you might find me obnoxious
or unbearable lol. I try my best to make people laugh and dry to
dredge up something hopefully resembling wit with my words =D
I just moved to New York from Chicago, and things are kinda hectic
for me right now, but I'd like to start getting to know people in
the area and, when things are a little less hectic, maybe meet up
with people for hangouts/dates?
I think this is enough for me to put on here for now. Don't think I
elaborated enough? Care to know more? Voice your opinions and
questions in my message box and I'll most likely respond with the
answers you seek =p
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment, still living with my parents, helping them out here
with the move and then I dunno what. At the moment unemployed,
finally leaving my awful retail job when I moved and hoping to find
something better over here that'll pay more and let me live on my
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being incredibly lame. Seriously, that's my best skill.
Oh, you mean when I'm not being lame? Well, I consider myself a
good friend and a good listener, eye contact and all. I'm also
fairly good at a number of games, though nowhere near godlike.
Also, tripping over thin air and randomly loosing my balance and
other general acts of klutzyness are very much a part of my skill
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not gonna lie, kind of a big guy. I try my best to be decent
looking, but my looks aren't the best part about me IMO.
Outside of looks, I crack jokes a lot, I talk with my hands a good
amount (part of the Italian in me. The blood, not what I ate the
other night), and I laugh a lot. I've been told I have a nice
voice? I dunno, that's something for you to decide XD
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I've read way too few, but I do plan to read more when I get
the chance. Ones I have read and loved are: Holes, The Hobbit and
the LOTR Trilogy, Catcher in the Rye, and The Great Gatsby. As for
manga, my absolute favorite is Fullmetal Alchemist, with a really
close runner up at the moment (now that I've recently gotten into
it) being One Piece. Yes, that One Piece. Sooooo good. Death Note
is also awesome. I unfortunately haven't read much manga either
Comics: I'll add this into here since I'm a super huge fan of Scott
Pilgrim and Homestuck. So if you wanna talk about how awesome it
would be if people exploded into coins or who your favorite kids
and trolls are, you've found a buddy =D
Movies: I'm not a big movie buff, but I've still seen a good few.
Scott Pilgrim Vs The World is by far my favorite movie of all time.
Outside of that, I love old Disney movies, Pixar movies, and a
bunch of animated stuff as well as a good few awesome stuff both
old and new(ish)!
Shows: I admit, I'm a huge fan of sitcoms. At least the ones from
the 90's and early 2000's. Its sort of a guilty pleasure of mine XD
Especially the old, family-friendly ones like Fresh Prince and
Family Matters. I also recently(ish) discovered (thanks to
Nick@Nite) the amazingness that is The Nanny XD Outside of those, I
love cartoons and anime and stuff. Though I don't really watch much
Music: Mostly J-Pop/J-Rock and video game music. Yes I am that much
of a nerd. Its mostly cuz I don't go out of my way to listen to
music, so what I like and listen to is what I end up hearing
normally. In other words, music from video games and from anime XD
Though outside of that, my tastes are pretty broad, and I generally
like anything good, with preferences towards rock and against
R&B and rap.
Food: Pizza. Seriously, that is all.
Well, I guess I'll add sweet things like cake and ice cream, and
pretty much anything Italian like pasta and lasagna, but I can
seriously live off of just pizza.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My friends.
2. Video games
3. The internet
4. An MP3 player
5. Good stories
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Crazy story ideas and game ideas, the world in general, crazy
things my friends have done/are doing. Life as a whole really.
Sometimes I think too much, but I deal with it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either hanging out with my friends doing crazy things, or just
chilling at home watching some TV, playing some games, surfing the
internet, or all of the above.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm actually still a virgin. Partly cuz all but one of my
relationships never progressed to the point where sex was a thing
to consider (at least IMO) and partly cuz I believe in abstinence.
Its a thing I picked up from being raised as a Christian, and
despite no longer really being religious, I still choose to stick
with this one thing. Not cuz I think its evil or that I think I'll
get STD's and ruin my life. Simply cuz I'm this super romantic sap
who wants to save himself for the woman he marries >_< Think
of that what you will, but rest assured that I won't try to get
into anyone's pants. Nor will I let them into mine. Not unless
she's that special girl and its the honeymoon anyway =p
