My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One of many rewrite of my profile are pendingI am that person in the picture(s) above. I used to have long hair. I will have long hair again at some point, but I felt the need to be more eminently employable, and the tactic seems to be working. I have them fooled.

I work in various forms of the 'T' in STEM jobs, but I'm trying to move away from that by getting the highest paying job I can manage, grind at it for a few years, live as cheaply as possible, and then break out and just... I don't know, travel and work on my art and writing. I am thoroughly tired of doing the day job thing.

This probably belongs in the 'What I'm doing with my life' section, but it's pertinent, what I'm doing, to who I am right now.

I like getting out and walking Forest Park every once in a while just as much as I like staying in and watching a movie or playing a game. I don't do as much of the one as the others, so someone who actively goes and does the outdoorsy things and would like to have someone else along is a definite plus in my book.

I alternate between Introvert and Extrovert. Sometimes I like to just hole up for a while and enjoy the sound of rain, and then I get bored with that and want to go visit everyone I know and everyone they know. I am living with friends I made because I thought the booth girl was cute at a convention and now am friends with her and everyone in her (now also my) household.

I have learned to recognize that all things good and bad lead to where we are now, and not one block in that tower could have been removed to get to the shape it became. I'm not spiritual in any real sense, but I realize that everything, simple and great, is intertwined into every moment of every day.

Alternating though various mediums of art is a frequent pastime I have yet to turn into a profession, mainly because I can't sit still long enough to get enough done in any one category to make it apparent I know what I'm doing. I am bored with the tier of skill I have achieved in my visual art, so I've been refining techniques rather than grinding out solid works. I, just not satisfied with what I've done thus far.

So, ever onward
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm trying to live as inexpensively as possible so I can put together some funds to shift the stagnant direction of my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Oh, a lot of things. Let's be honest, we all have our talents.

Drawing. I'm not even in the top ten percentile of skill, despite my better efforts, but I can translate my imagination, when I can wake the lazy beast, into accurate visual representations of various flavors.

I can generally suss out the problem with any kind of technology, given enough time to do so.

Spatial planning and cramming more stuff into less space than it should physically be able to fit in (Zing?), and make it accessible and look good at the same time.

I'm also really, bizarrely good at guessing a movie from a vague description. People refuse to play that game with me after a few rounds.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My really long hair.... NOPE. Not a thing any longer. Not for now, anyway.

My lack of an inside voice. (You like deep voices, don't you?)

How generic my given name is. My real name isn't Teverant. Didn't see that coming, did you?.

I have been told that I don't wear my pants up under my arms, whatever the hell that means. Apparently it is odd that I use a belt to keep my pants at my waist where they belong. I assume that there is some danger of them consuming me if I don't, by that observation.

Most prominently, my chaotic need to jump topic because something relevant was sparked by obscure conversational math in my head, and a new tangent from what I was talking about must be driven. Thusly, I am also quite good at keeping track of conversational tangents and backtracking along them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Really, there isn't much point in listing favorite media. It's a thing always in flux, and telling you I like Type O Negative, Philip Glass, Pink Floyd, No More Kings and such isn't going to clue you in that I'm listening to Florence + The Machine, Oingo Boingo, Electric Six, and The White Stripes right now. I think boiling down favorites is stupid. I like different aspects of different media for different reasons. There is no one all powerful favorite. The same above goes for movie and literature interests, and I imagine you're more dynamic than a static pile of names and pronouns.

BUT in light of the fact that people do look at this part for a fair idea of how well they'd get along, I'll give.

MUSIC: Type O Negaitve, Philip Glass, Pink Floyd, No More Kings, Concrete Blond, Black Mages, Journey, Tom Petty, Traveling Wilburys, Ten Years After, The Cars, David Gilmore, Rick Wright, Daft Punk, The Eagles, CSS, A lot of 80's Rock/Pop, Classical and Ambient music, and a pretty ecclectic mix of things that aren't the general body of Country or Rap/Hip Hop

MOVIES: The Science of Sleep, Short Bus, The Dark Knight/Batman Begins, Monty Python films, Superbad, Iron Man, Secret of NIMH, Nightmare Before Christmas, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeny Todd (The new one), Brothers Grimm, the real Star Wars movies, marathons of the Star Trek movies (part of the nerd ritual, of course), Brazil, Unbreakable, Network, The Wall, Krull, Ghostbusters (I or II), Hawk the Slayer, most MST3K or Riff Tracks movies, Lady Hawke, most Arthurian movies. I like a lot of films that aren't incredibly popular, like Monkey Bone or Cool World. I don't like them because they're unpopular, I just like them.

TV: Battlestar Galactica, Venture Bros, Rick And Morty, Doctor Who, whatever anime is currently running on Crunchy Roll that doesn't involve a High School or the equivalent, Metalocalypse... (I don't really watch network TV anymore)

Books/Authors: Hitchhiker's series, Illuminatus Trilogy, I Am Legend, Fangs of K'aath, The Dark Tower series, Stephen King, Paul Kidd, Douglas Adams, anatomical encyclopedias, technique manuals
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My art supplies. They make up one entire entity, because they equally become art somewhere down the line. And, really, once you have enough of them that they have their own gravity pull, it's time to start selecting that celestial name before it collapses into itself and you've got a black hole on your hands.

My finished art. It's MINE dammit, get your filty hands off! Buy a print.

My good friends and family (this is by order of importance, so you know)

A job I enjoy and feel morally balanced in working at

A roof over my head

The means to lead a comfortable life

Good, physical, I intimate time with someone

I know that's seven things, but fuck coloring inside the lines

Also, filthy loud conversational dialog, because being polite and quiet in this particular time is dishonest
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My writing, mostly. I'm always coming up with new twists and details about a character or bit of the story. Sometimes its a reflection of life, sometimes its pulled out of my ass.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Same thing I try to do every night, Pinky: Try to take over the world!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea where this ship is headed, and I'm not so much steering it as sitting back and watching the wheel turn and sticking my foot out to catch it from veering too dramatically, all while lounging back and scrolling through Facebook most of the rest of the time.

Every once in a long while I will look up to see if there's an island on the horizon, but I'm not keeping track of whether or not the current is taking me in circles, and at the same time I'm starkly aware that that's exactly what's happening and I just hope there's some opportunity to come across I missed before if I just run the same course again and again
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Well, let's see here. The big obvious answers would be "If you want to" or “Because you're interested!”. Both are completely acceptable. Neither are necessary, but I can't imagine I'll be hearing from you if either one of those is somehow absent.

From a less obtuse angle, do you like movies that are so bad they make you laugh? Perfect! We can go do something involving that and run from there.

So, drop me a note! I e noticed that most of the people that I meet off of here are those that don't show up under the searches I do
