My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's see...I've a wonderful sense of humor (a little dark), easy going, down to earth, a tad sarcastic, kind, knows how to have fun, responsible, honest...yup, sounds like...me? Hmmm, sounds like a lot of people...oh well, welcome to the mob.

Anyway, I guess I'll use this space to attempt to describe to you who I am...when I was younger I'd say to people I did three main things: "school, scouts, band"**. I've just recently polished off school, I've been done with scouts for over six years, and my chops are a little weak. So now, civil engineering has taken a solid roll, I still enjoy listening to music and playing when I can, and I suppose I've thrown a little brain power to "thoughtfulness" and concern; about myself, about life in general.

I've enjoyed the company of many people who've commented on my being a goofball and a nice guy, but lately (the past few years), I think I've gained the capacity for sustained awkward interaction.

But despite all things, I'm usually only moments away from a stifled giggle...here's to life!

**Just to clear the record, I am appalled at the shenanigans recently pulled by the Boy Scouts of America with respect to their continued discrimination.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm fresh out of graduate school (graduated December '13), where I studied geotechnical engineering (a branch of civil engineering focusing on soil and rock, and how to put stuff in/on it, like foundations, tunnels, dams...). I now work for a civil engineering firm, where I'm helping with the design, construction, and progect management of a tunnel in DC, highway embankments in Georgia, and a bridge to Staten Island...basically, neat stuff.

If I'm not careful, I may be consumed by work and become a real dolt; but I try and forget work over the weekends and get a little culture.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Jerry-rigging
-Using my belongings till they're seriously trash
-Low Brass (tuba, trombone, euphonium; really good may be a stretch : ) )
-Getting along outdoors; I've done a fair bit of camping/ backpacking, though I certainly haven't been able to hit the trail in quite a while, I look forward to doing so...
-Belly Laughing.
-knots (I'm still hesitant about this "really good" thing, but I certainly know more than 25)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:
I haven't read much fiction since high school, but I did pick up 1984 and Moby Dick on my own accord. I have made my way through a few books on history and philosophy...

Movies (hopefully the list will speak for itself):
The Great Escape, Happy Gilmore, Mr. Deeds, Lincoln, the Grumpy Old Men series, Gladiator, Uncle Buck, Nobody's Fool, Ace Ventura, almost all the Pixars, The Last Castle, Looney Tunes, Silly Symphonies, Iron Giant, Avengers (super hero movies in general), Marx Brothers.
I've also ravaged House of Cards, Hell's Kitchen, Breaking Bad, The Office, Louie, and Continuum

Music:
I've got a thing for Baroque music and Beethoven, but I've found repeaters in bluegrass, rock, techno, disco and world music... So, I won't put my foot down on a particular genre.

Food:
Let's just say, one summer during a camping trip I was nicknamed "garbage disposal". But I do know how to savor food, especially anything mint, eggnog (spiked!), and carrot cake.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My brain and the illusion of free will
2. Smart people to learn from
3. Slapstick
4. Idioms
5. The tingly feeling when you hear great music
6. The memory of Abraham Lincoln...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably watching a movie...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd tell you something, but I'm really not sure where to draw the line between funny and inappropriate...I'm sure if we thought about it we could unearth a past event which might be enlightening, admirable, deplorable, or confusing from the vast plains of my mind illustrating my unconscious tendencies. But I honestly don't have any good ideas to establish how much of a wackjob I might or might not be.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're mildly amused by the silly business above; and wish to share and experience or three...
