Hi there! My name is Austin. I'm extremely honest. Partly because I believe that's how it should always be done, but mostly because I suck at lying. I can discuss events spanning the entire history of the Republic, and quite a lot on the various Sith societies that have sprung up throughout history as well. I have an ego that tends to be on the larger side. Some people would call me conceited, but I like to think of it more that I'm firmly convinced of my own awesomeness. I'm a huge foodie, so I'm always checking the Orlando-area blogs for new developments or restaurant reviews. Also I've a big fan of anime and have been going to anime and comic conventions for 9 years now.
What I’m doing with my life
Just got my BA in Anthropology from UCF. Any time I have a spare moment that I'm not using to talk to people, I can be found reading my Kindle.
I’m really good at
remembering obscure facts and stories. I love to go and find
stories that not many people know and go tell them to other people.
Cracking jokes and making puns, sometimes they laugh and sometimes
they don't. That's how life goes though. Don't know if I'm good at
it or not, but I certainly enjoy it. I know a little about pretty
much any subject you can come up with. I'm great at getting along
with all types of people.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and my eyes. I've been told they both look rather
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love the theatre and I was in several plays in middle and high school. My favorite musicals would probably be Avenue Q, Rent, Chicago, and Phantom. You'll have to ask me if you want to know my favorite plays :P
I read just about everything I can get my hands on, so my tastes run the gamut from fantasy and sci-fi to most types of nonfiction. The one common thing is that there are adventures. I really enjoy A Song of Ice and Fire, and Lord of the Rings. For any fellow fans, gîl síla erin lû e-govaded vín.
I really enjoy watching movies and my favorites are usually comedies, but I've seen great examples of every genre. I'm a fan of film noir and I enjoy a lot of the cult classics. Pulp Fiction and The Big Lebowski being standouts for me. As for TV shows, I'm a fan of Doctor Who and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, among others.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to teach someone something I had just learned. I believe the
best to way to test your understanding of something is to teach it
to someone else. So I spend a lot of time planning out how I would
explain something to to other people. For example, Did you know
that most of the time what you are seeing isn't how the world
actually is but how your brain remembers it as?
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually hanging out with my friends. Sometimes we watch movies but most of the time it's just drinking and talking, though they do most of the drinking. I have an opening for the position of "Boardgame Partner" that I've been looking to fill for a while.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a total attention whore. If I wasn't so pragmatic I could
almost be paid in compliments.
