My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name's Stu. I'm 6'3 and regret every minute of it. For those of you who wish to be taller, look to the nearest chandelier and be glad you can fit underneath it. If you can't, I'm sorry, and I feel your pain. Oh, and ceiling fans. Ceiling fans are assholes. Giant, spinning, concussion-inducing assholes.

I can compose a proper sentence and I consider that to be a pretty marketable skill. I even know the difference between "effect" and "affect", "there", "they're" and "their"... not that I should really be proud of that; these things happen when you're raised by an English major... also, I promise that I didn't google those words. You'll just have to use your trust there.

I love the Cardinals. I also love the Packers. I do not nor will I ever apologize for either of these except in the form of "sorry the Cardinals are amazing" or "I am terribly sorry you feel saddened that my team deprived you of a shot at the super bowl this year".

Oh, and my name's in the alphabet. One of my favorite features of my name. "...q, r, S T U, v..." I'll bet you $5 you don't know anyone else who can say that. No, initials don't count, and you can't create any elaborate crazy nickname for them.

I let humor run my life. Fair warning: I'm a punaholic. I love shock comedy. If it exists and I can make a joke about it, I probably will. Life's too short to be negative and uptight all the time.

I am fully out of the closet and I work as a youth minister for a local church. Take that as you will; a lot of people tend to think that means I'm going to try to convert them or something, and while I would assure you that is not my intention, people either seem to be gung-ho about the fact that I have faith or they're close-minded and have this preconceived notion that Christianity and homosexuality are mutually exclusive and I'm stupid for believing what I believe. That's for you to decide, but I really enjoy what I do, and I'm not here to tell you what you need to believe. Anyways, yes, the church knows, they knew when they hired me, the congregation knows; everyone seems to love me and there have been no issues. Really, it's a great job and I love what it's doing for my life. Plus I get to wear band t-shirts to staff meetings and blare my radio in the parking lot and nobody bats an eye because "oh, lol, it's the youth minister, just be glad he's not doing donuts in the church van again..."

I'm also doing the whole "fitness" thing. Down 20 lbs since Jan 5, going strong, just did my first 5K (hence the profile pic); I'm still not "skinny" and I have a long way to go before I'm at where I want to be, but I have a goal and I've gotten this far. Haters gonna hate. Stu's not givin' a f********ck. :)

Anyways, that's enough random stuff about me. Feel free to contact me if you wanna know anything; I'm pretty easy-going.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At present, I'm doing things I enjoy. Working as a youth minister (among other things)(yes, I'm gay, out, and work for a church, and no f*cks are being given! What a time to be alive...), volunteering (disaster relief has somehow become my bread & butter), making jokes, appreciating everything I'm fortunate enough to have and looking forward to whatever the future brings to me.

And as the latest update, it appears my church wants to send me to graduate school; it looks as though I'm seeking ordination? More to come on that later... in about six years...

Needless to say, I'm now thinking about making some waves in Christianity with this whole "being gay" thing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
finding low-hanging objects. Tripping over myself. Accidentally elbowing people in the face (just ask my coworker... it's her fault for being so short though).

Also, piano. I thoroughly enjoy the musical arts. I've been playing long enough that my hobby is now old enough to drink.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Hey! Tall guy!" ...and then they point at something they can't reach, and I walk over and get it for them... and die a little bit inside...

Also, I'm a bass (choir/musically speaking, not a fish, sorry), so occasionally people are thrown off by the depth of my voice...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Waiting for Godot, Things Fall Apart, The Hobbit, Water for Elephants, The Hunger Game Trilogy, and basically anything that wasn't forced down my throat in college.

Movies: Kill Bill (both volumes), the LotR trilogy, Boondock Saints, Avatar (the blue people one, not the Japanese-style one that was originally a Nick cartoon), Shawn of the Dead,...the list goes on, but I'm bored of this. lol

Shows: Better Off Ted. If you haven't Netflix'ed it, do so. And bear through the first two episodes. It's hilarious. Uh... Scrubs, Futurama... I really don't watch a lot of TV...

Music: Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dream Theater, anything with classical or contemporary piano... there's much more to this, but we'll get to that later...

Food: I'm really not even sure where to start on this... I can do just about anything, I am not picky. Except for marble rye bread. F*ck marble rye bread.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:

-Comedy/Something to laugh and smile about
-A computer capable of running Photoshop (and other CS5 apps)
-My family (they're pretty awesome.)
-God (I have my faith, but I'm Methodist, so it's cool, don't worry, I'm not gonna start puking bibles at you)
-A Piano (or access to a piano)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...well, I just spent a lot of time thinking about what to put here, so maybe that answers your question?

I'm a busy guy, so in short, I think about shiny things. Lots and lots of shiny things...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

...what? It's Friday night. You gotta loosen the straps once in a while. I apologize for nothing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't tend to keep a lot of stuff private- I really don't have much to hide. Here's some random stuff.

I'm a sucker for guys with brown eyes. Not to say I don't appreciate other eye colors... don't feel deterred if you don't have brown eyes. I don't either. Simply a preference.

-When I was a kid (like, 3-4 years old) I would occasionally find myself crying to "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". Had no clue what it meant, just... thought it was sad. Foreshadowing?
Or more likely, it was the fact that I was a 3 year old kid and had just gotten in trouble over something and the song just happened to be playing... you know... whatever...

-Whenever we'd have a tornado warning, my radio (which I left running all night when I was a kid) would start playing "Just what I needed" by The Cars. I still associate that song with tornadoes.
The same is true with "Land Down Under".

-I'm really good at losing pens. World champion material.

-I have two kitchen timers because I lose those too. (EDIT: One kitchen timer...)

-When my mother figured out that I didn't know how to shoot rubber bands, she effectively threw me in the car and drove me to Kinko's, where we then proceeded to get kicked out of Kinko's... It was my first time getting kicked out of an establishment for hitting the store manager in the back of the head with office supplies.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you need a light bulb changed. Or if you need something off a closet shelf and you really don't feel like getting out the step ladder. I'm good at those things. :)

OR if you don't need these things. Handing things to people less vertically blessed than I am can be very exhausting; I need a break from time to time.
