My self-summary
I am not here to paint myself with lies to try to attract attention. You either like me for me, or you don't. I'll give the facts and let you take what you want from that.

I'm a logical thinker. I approach everything with a little bit of skepticism. I'm uncomfortable with situations I can't fully understand, but I hide it well. Honesty is a big thing to me. I can even be too honest sometimes, but I have a certain view of who I am, and who I should be. I'm constantly trying to be a better person (Though it's hard.), and try to live up to my potential.

I'm lazy from time to time, but that's just another thing I try to keep in check. I'm anal about certain things, and can even obsess about the placement of objects in my room. I'm messy sometimes, but it helps me to not lose things, oddly. Not gross messy. Just cluttered.

I can be fiercely loyal. I don't go out of my way to defend myself, but I will get involved if I feel someone I care about is being disrespected. I don't really tolerate disrespect.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a machine operator at Kraft Foods. I'm learning electrical to get into maintenance, so that's my end goal.
I’m really good at
I'm good at a few things. I make an awesome grilled cheese sandwich. Also, I've never messed up a bowl of cereal... that I know of. Oh yeah, I'm pretty good at building things. Even if they are a bit nerdy. More on that if you get to know me.

Seriously, though, I do like to think I know a little bit about what to do in the kitchen. Especially when it comes to chili.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look pissed? My friends ask me if I'm mad sometimes, even if I'm not. Just how I usually look, I guess. Probably deep in thought, or something. Probably thinking about tacos, or pizza. Maybe bacon. You know, the usual deep(fried) stuff.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I'll read anything that can capture my attention after the first 20 pages, or so. I'm not really picky. Sometimes I get into a reading frenzy.

Movies - Again, like books I'll watch almost anything.

Shows - Don't watch much TV. Most shows now aren't all that entertaining to me, but Netflix helps me find some that are.

Music - I'm not very broad on music. I tend to keep it within the rock/classic rock spectrum, but I can appreciate good music from any genre. Pandora is rapidly expanding my musical tastes. Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Chevelle are almost always good.

Food - Love food. That is all. Do have a thing about texture, though.

Video Games (Thought I should add this, since it's my primary form of entertainment.) - League of Legends, World of Warships, Path of Exile. Like all sorts of games, though. Including board/card games.
The six things I could never do without
Truck - Really enjoy working on my truck. Can't wait to get it drivable again. Miss driving her. (Keep in mind, non-drivable truck does not mean I'm lacking transportation. I also have a car.)

Family - Not much to say here. Love my family, and enjoy spending time with my family.

Friends - Same as with family, except they all seem to be moving away. Not many of them enjoy the DFW area. Can't say I blame 'em.

Hands - Friend posed an interesting question to me once: Would you rather lose your hands or your feet? I chose feet. I can easily do the things I love without feet. There are pretty good prosthetics out for that. Hands are a different story.

People - As anti-social as I like to be, I still need some time around other people. I'm trying my best not to be a hermit.

Curtains - My sister bought me some light dampening curtains one Christmas. Best present ever.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Bacon? Driving. I love to drive, and I love cars. I spend a lot of time thinking about some of my dream cars, and what it would be like to drive them. Mostly when trying to sleep. When I need to be really dreaming, but can't get my brain to shut up.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm working 1st shift, so my nights are usually free. Not sure how many of my Friday nights will be late nights, as there is always a chance I'll have to work Saturday mornings. Typically, I spend Friday nights at home gaming, though. They enjoy scheduling me for Saturdays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
From time to time, I've been known to listen to (And sing to) Alanis Morissette in the shower.
You should message me if
You want to play a round of Disc Golf sometime? Would enjoy more people to play with.

You're not trolling for the next guy to give his credit card info to watch you go at it on webcam. Seriously, I'm not that desperate. Not really desperate at all, honestly.

I'm not looking for hookups, or anything like that. I'm perfectly happy with how my life is now. I would, however, like to get to know some more people, and I'm not opposed to anything coming of it.

Nitty Gritty: I have no issues with race, or background. No issues with size, either. I just enjoy the company of like minded people, and intelligent conversation. n3tsp34k gets on my nerves faster than anything.
