Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a generally relaxed kind of guy who laughs at just about
everything, that's one thing about me that people either love or
hate. I can laugh at any
situation, to the point that I
occasionally offend people. I spend a lot of my free time reading,
both for school and for leisure.
As far as sports go tend to be a fan of New York and Tampa teams,
but I'm really not into the big sports (football, baseball,
basketball) much. They've recently shown themselves to be concerned
with little else than money. I'm mostly a fan of Hockey
I'm trying not to curse as much as I used to. It's a work in
progress. I am a christian, as noted in my details and while I'm
definitely serious about it I'm not some crazy bible-thumper. I try
to be an open minded person. I was fortunate enough to grow up
around a lot of very diverse people, and I try very hard not to
judge anyone without getting to know them.
I should say, I'm mostly on here looking for new friends, if I meet
someone and something more develops that's great, but I don't
believe in trying to force these kind of things.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was at school in Atlanta for Computer Engineering. My main
activity there was failing Chemistry, among other things.
Then I was working full time back in Tampa and trying to figure out
what comes next.
Then I went to Community College for a few semesters and got an AA
in general education to figure out what I liked doing.
I graduated from USF with a history degree last year (2010).
I am now in my first year of grad school for Medieval Studies at
Fordham in the Bronx.
I used to be in a death metal band, just something we did for fun.
We have a 3 song demo and a myspace too:
I'm also wasting lots of time on computers whether with video games
or just random internet stupidity.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
haven't played in a few years, and I'm also a pretty good trumpet
player. I'm also
good at taking apart computers
and rebuilding them.
Arguing, just for the hell of it, nothing personal about it though.
Speaking French, back before I got rusty and forgot my vocabulary I
was once or twice mistaken for a native speaker. Starting to be
pretty good at speaking German as well.
Schadenfreude. Not that I find other peoples' pain exciting or
anything, but that (once again) I sometimes laugh in situations
where it may not be socially appropriate. It's not as if I can only
laugh at the misfortune of others though, plenty of the stuff that
happens to me is pretty funny as well.
I'm also good at giving very honest answers to people once I've
gotten to know them, so be careful not to ask me questions you may
not want to hear the answers to.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most likely my beard, it's starting to get pretty respectable
That I don't smile much, so people sometimes think I am unhappy
about something. If you end up meeting don't think I'm bored or
upset just because I'm not smiling all the time, that's just how my
face looks when I'm not thinking about it.
My silence. I don't talk much until I have something to say, and
I'm generally pretty quiet until I've gotten to know people and I
feel more comfortable around them. After that point, however, I
sometimes don't know when to shut up.

scratch the surface. I could make a list that would take you an
hour to read through and several weeks to get to know all the
bands. I'm mostly a metalhead, though I like a pretty wide variety,
and I can stand listening to just about everything but recent
country and bad hip-hop. To be honest, I've found that musical
taste is a really unimportant thing to have in common.
, also peanut
butter and banana sandwiches. Beer
(e) TV shows: I've mostly lost interest in TV, it is stupid.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My Computer and internet access
2. My CD player (or music in general, and screw ipods, they
3. My closest friends to talk to
4. Something to read
5. My family, although they drive me crazy.
6. desserts to eat every now and then. sometimes I get cravings for
chocolate and if there isn't any I go insane.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the hell I'm going to do with the rest of my life.
Finding someone, and what I would do next if I did.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
To be perfectly honest, probably on the computer, or reading.
Going to movies when friends are in town also ranks high, or just
raising hell in general. It's not so much what you're doing as it
is who you're doing it with.
Maybe a midnight run to IHOP or another such place.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I failed out of college.
