**I also ought to note that due to OKC, I am now taken. However, I'm far too lazy to change my profile.
I’m twenty-three and I like to write, I seem to have a natural talent for it. My only natural talent and sadly, I neglect it. I suppose I could write a novel, but I’m not terribly creative, it’s Odin’s—Praise Him—curse upon me. Graced with an ability to write, but I’m unable to think up anything really compelling to write about.
I’m not much of a partier, but I do enjoy going out to one now and then just to meet some new people and have my quota for social interaction fulfilled. I’m quiet and introverted, so you won’t often find me talking to many people openly, unless of course, I know them very well or I’m very, very drunk in which case, I become outgoing and talkative. Though, in the past few weeks, I've actually become quite fond of going to the goth club every weekend or every other weekend, depending on circumstances. No, I'm not a goth, I just happen to enjoy the aesthetics, dancing and general...outsiderness?
Despite being introverted, I often have issues holding myself from blurting things out. When people are talking, some unusual smart ass comment pops into my mind and I can’t help myself but to blurt it out, disregarding who I’m around. However, due to this I get myself into hot water a lot of the time. People who don’t know me very well have trouble understanding that I’m being facetious with my comments and often take me seriously, thinking I’m disturbed or that I’m just an outright asshole. I tend to be cynical and sarcastic a lot of the time and I have to say, I like it.
I'm a huge nerd, there's no doubt about that. It comes in a ton of different facets for me, from loving to learn, being obsessive about music, being a massive computer gamer and loving to build/tweak PC's. I'm also really, really into science, especially Astronomy.
I have a ridiculous obsession with my music, which is also another geek side of me. I tend to know all these useless facts and genre information about the music. I generally keep my music to myself though, because there aren’t many people out there who appreciate the particular styling; yet if anyone even shows a remote interest, I'm typically off spending a long time compiling songs into a nice compilation. I like to collect albums and will seek out rare releases because they’re A) Rare and B) Typically awesome. I’ve also begun to collect vinyl and have amassed quite a few albums already. It’s one of my favorite things to do—collect albums—and I’m a little annoyed when I don’t have the money to buy a few each month or so. In relation to my music obsession, I like to go to a lot of concerts, typically held in bars or at small venues. They’re usually only $10-$20 a piece, so I can’t afford not to go. I’ve met some of my favorite bands this way and I must say, it’s an utterly fantastic experience.
I rarely drink (well, I ought to say, I rarely get drunk. I drink socially), but I like beer. Especially discovering new types that were previously unknown to me. Bud Lite and PBR need not apply, I have issues choking down cheap beer.
I also have an odd obsession with having to know how things work, no matter how small or inane. If I find something new that I haven't seen before, I'll observe it and do my best to try and figure out how it works.
There’s a tendency with me to get into new hobbies and fully embrace them, only to lose interest soon after. This happens often, I find myself researching new things and getting extremely hyped about something, wanting to buy something, etc and then only a few days later (maybe a week or two), I don’t care about it anymore. However, this doesn’t apply to music, computers or any of my permanent hobbies I’ve had. Because of course, if that were true, they wouldn’t be permanent, would they?
I also can’t sufficiently sum myself up within the context of this profile you’re reading.
I'm passionate about politics. I really, really like discussing politics. However, they make me extremely cynical and drive me to have a general hatred towards most politicians. I'm not talking about just having an opinion either, I'm not interested in your mere opinion on one subject or another. I'm interested in analyzing political policies and implications.
Edit (1/7/08): I just received my new camera and thus, have taken up photography. I'm still learning the ins and outs, but so far, it predict I'm going to have a blast. Canon Rebel XT, for those who are curious.
I am cynical, facetious, and afraid of zombies
