My self-summary
My name is Sam. I was born in the land of the red river and I grew up here by the bay of the blue crab. My three main passions are art, writing, theatre. I also enjoy exploring new lands and sword fighting although I seldom get to do that in real life.

I like to study theatre, art, and philosophy. I tread the line between the cynical and ideal, pragmatic and compassionate, logical and emotional. Primarily, I'd call myself an existentialist.

I'm naught but a self centered man who concerns himself with troubles of the world.
What I’m doing with my life
I have studied theatre at Goucher, but I didn't graduate. I plan on fixing that when I've experienced enough of the outside world.

So just what AM I doing with my life right now? Good question...

I'm currently working on an epic fantasy story that's gotten to be 80 pages long hand written so I don't know if I can call it a short story anymore.

I also like to do theatre work. I prefer to be on the stage but I like to volunteer to help with set work and box office ushering.

Between all of those I'm trying to get into voice acting. Yeah, got a mic, pop filter, and everything. So anyone looking for a voice talent *cough*hint*cough* or stage talent, or a stage hand, or any kind of hand, I'd be glad to help.

I've also been certified in bartending or mixology as some prefer to call it.
I’m really good at
Writing, fighting, and not giving up. I can also draw, act, and mix a good cocktail.

Not trying to brag, but I'm also good at cooking. I mean I'm not a world class chef or anything but I can make some pretty delicious scrambled eggs. Again not trying to brag...

...okay maybe I'm bragging a little. It's a dating profile, I'm supposed to sell myself a little.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically: My curly red hair.

Personality Wise: A lot of people say I'm smart, friendly, but quiet. I'd have to agree with the quiet part, but I have no clue where they get smart and friendly from.

Also that I'm a lot more outgoing when I'm-...I don't want to say "drunk", because I don't drink that often and I usually limit myself to two glasses when I do. So how about "less sober"? Yeah, that works.

Although, I guess that technically isn't something people have first noticed about me. However, it would be for people who first meet while I am less sober.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
You know those guys who like Doctor Who, the works of Joss Whedon, graphic novels, anime, and the like? Yeah I'm basically one of those guys.

For music, I really like jazz, indie rock, classical, and epic soundtracks.

Currently Watching: Archer, MASH, RWBY, Once Upon a Time, Soul Eater-...damn you Netflix!...also YouTube and Toonami.

Currently Reading: Elric Saga

Currently Playing: Kingdom Hearts 1.5 when it isn't Pathfinder, or Attack on Titan Tribute Game, or some random RPG.

As for favorite food, I like spicy tasting dishes. I'm not big on sweets outside of desert. There are exceptions though, like sesame chicken.
The six things I could never do without
My dogs that follow me around like ducklings.
My family that has always supported me and my brother even after separating.
Free will, even if it technically does not exist according to causal determinism.
Writing.
The good fight.
Mystery.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot of things. Okay, to be more specific, I spend a lot of time thinking about writing, the future, human rights, free will, philosophy, scientific endeavors, and what I want to have for dinner.

Even mores specifically: How Kant's 'kingdom of ends' makes him a hypocrite. How Aristotle's obsession with making lists and categories affected the practices of the European colonists in Rwanda, who twisted the previously harmonious Tutsis and Hutus from a farming tribe and ranching tribe into racial hierarchy puppet government that eventually led to a genocidal tipping point.

How the progress of the Feminist movement has led to a growing awareness amongst men of the ways in which antiquated concepts of masculinity has dictated their own repressed albeit privileged roles; leading some of them to join atavistic ideologies such as MRAs; when they should instead focus on a complimentary movement to reassess notions of masculinity and deconstruct toxic male stereotypes within the modern zeitgeist.

I think a lot about the stories I want to write or am writing. Stories like the one I'm currently working on. Also how I want to incorporate Shakespeare's rhetorical devices into my writing.

Long story short, it would be easier to list what I don't spend a lot of time thinking about...which I honestly can't think of at the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Discovering what the world has to offer me...or just whiling away on the internet. The two aren't mutually exclusive, you know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know for a fact that termites taste like minty carrots...it was during a trip to Belize.
You should message me if
I dunno...if you want to is as good a reason as any.

I promise to reply if you do. Fair warning though, I believe in being civil in my posts. It's not like I'm trying to be a decent person. There's just no class in harassment, name calling, or being an ass in general.

So yeah, if you think we'd make good friends or maybe something more, feel free to send me a message.
