I don't like to write a whole lot about myself in these things, as i feel it defeats the purpose of getting to know someone through casual conversation.
With that said, my name is David. I moved to Estacada in March of 2015, trying to start a new life for myself. I moved here from Reno, NV, and i have to say it is so beautiful here in Oregon, i wish i would have moved here sooner. I currently have a job and am working on going back to college here in the summer.
I am a Nerd, i love all things nerd culture. Videogames, Anime, Manga, Marvel/DC Comics, Tabletop games, writing and reading good stories from books and online, and a lot more. I am fairly intelligent and mature, but have a fun child like side. I like to talk about both philosophy and nonsense.
I also love music, mostly classical as well as video game and anime sound tracks. I also like rock music, Avenged Sevenfold, System of a Down, and Korn being a few of my favorites there. I'm not much into rap or country, but that doesn't mean i think all rap and country music is bad, it's just not often the type of music i listen to.
I can be pretty shy at first, in fact i'm usually too afraid to message anyone, but after a while of getting to know someone i open up pretty easily. Sometimes i can be too trusting, people say all the time i'm too nice for my own good. Honestly though, i just believe in treating others with respect and kindness.
Anyways, that's just a little about myself. If at all interested, feel free to send me a message and we'll see where things go from there. Thanks for reading :-)
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work at the 76 Gas Station, building up a little income as to go to college. I am not sure what i am going for in a degree just yet, though i plan to do something with either computers or writing. Other then that, i'm just kind of taking things one step at a time, dealing with things as they come up.
I’m really good at
I am really good at video games....oh wait, you meant productive skills. I got ya. Well, i can type 132 wpm. I used to build computers as a kid and still know my way around a computer as an adult. I am also a terrific speller. I can cook really well, my math skills are fairly decent, and if i get interested in something i can learn all about what i'm into real quick, to a point where i surprise myself sometimes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either my height or my eyes in terms of physical appearance, other then that i guess it would be my polite demeanor. I treat everyone with the kindness and respect that i would want from them, and even if people are rude i find it best not to fight negativity with negativity, no matter how obnoxious or ignorant people may be. It will only serve to make things worse in the end.

Food: Way too many to name, i'll basically try anything once. How about weirdest food i've tried? Bug Candy, Deep Friend Crickets, Cow Brains, Scorpion Sucker. Spiciest? I've tried the ghost chilly and survived, still enjoy my meal in the process. The only thing i can think of that i don't really like is Broccoli and Cauliflower, so in terms of what my favorite is, use your imagination :-)
The six things I could never do without
1.) Video Games
5.) Good Food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything and Nothing at the same time. I like to daydream, but when i'm not daydreaming, i do think about my life, or the lives of others, or current events and how if certain simple things were done, how things would change in a more positive light. I just kind of think to the point of over thinking, and i try really hard not to let things stress me out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably hanging out with my friends, or at home playing video
games, either or. I spend a lot of time with my friends, and Friday
tends to be one of those days most people have off, so i'm usually
with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well you are just going to have to ask and find out, huh?
You should message me if
You would like to chat sometime and get to know one another. I'm always down for new friends, and who knows, maybe more.
