Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Growing up I was one of those 'gifted' kids during school. Rampant
drug abuse during my first attempt at college (something I
constantly think about), which then led to me enlisting in the
Naval Nuclear Power Program (which is supposed to be the elite of
the training programs, such a shitty 18 months of 8 hour days of
school and reactor operations in a military environment)
I was in the US Navy between April 2004 - September 2013. While in
the service I was a nuclear reactor operator (4 1/2 years) on a
guided missile submarine in the Pacific Northwest and then a
radiological control technician in Pearl Harbor (2 1/2 years).
Thanks to getting sick while I was in the service, I can't really
see out of my left eye (who needs depth perception anyway?, and
hello disability payments)
I am a generally quiet person, but once I get to know a person I
open up a great deal
I have used electronic cigarettes for the last 5 years, and have
not smoked a real cigarette in over two years. There is no way I
would go back to smoking, and as such I can't stand the smell of it
Things that I like doing:
Visiting breweries (been to about two dozen so far)
Drinking micro brewed beer (I think I am up to 600 different
Making my own beer (my habanaro ale is outstanding)
Watching hockey and soccer, I will watch football every once in a
Swimming (was a decent swimmer when I was younger, too bad I lacked
the foresight back then to apply myself)
Going on road trips (I've driven all over the country and barely
visited less than half the states)
Attending concerts and dive bars with live music
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Pondering the decision to stay in Arizona and work at the Palo
Verde Nuclear Generating Station near Buckeye, go to Oregon State
for a degree in radiological studies, stay in community college
until I find something better, or just submit an application for a
radiological control job with the DOD outside of Seattle
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am reserved in social situations; however, I can hold a
conversation if someone else initiates it. I generally don't like
dealing with people
Or perhaps it could be the half-sleeve I have on my right forearm
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Game of Thrones
Agents of Shield
True Detective (that is some seriously excellent writing and
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
As for genres of books, I usually steer towards hard science
Music? My preference is for metal or hard rock. Lately I have been
following post-rock, post-metal, and various
instrumental/electronic bands. Seeing a band live is much better
than listening to it from your speakers (Muse was by far the best
concert I have been to)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Something to read
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Outrageous engineering ideas. Also world domination
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably going through reddit
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have never actually been in a real 'relationship'
I want to say I was too busy while I was in the Navy for a
relationship, but it just boils down to having no 'game'
whatsoever. It doesn't help that I am used to being alone
