My self-summary
(Cliff's notes: INTJ, according to Isabel Myers and Katharine Briggs) I'm a mechanically-inclined, left-brained logic fiend with streaks of free-spiritedness. I come from order, and enjoy chaos (to an extent), adventure, and sometimes pushing the limits. Oh, and if you're on the fence about sending me a message, DOO IIIIT ;) I don't often break the ice; not because I am an introvert and can't occasionally get around my shyness, either... Nine out of ten messages that I send go unanswered and it really takes the wind out of my sails :(
What I’m doing with my life
Career:
I trained as a mechanic,
I trained as a machinist...
But working for other people just stressed me the hell out, so now I am trying to lead instead of follow. It's much harder this way.

So while I'm taking some time off from traditional employment to work on personal projects, I help out with property maintenance/snow removal here and there, so that I still have money with which I can try to find a way to follow my passions and perhaps start my own workshop one day...

Life:
I'm trying to migrate towards Buddhist thinking/meditation and a mostly-vegetarian diet (or at least eating more food that is actually food and not octane booster. True story, look for "BHT" on your box of cereal and go Google it). Lol, anyway, I just want to be happy and healthy and enjoy life for as long as possible.
I’m really good at
Fixing cars
Holding things that amuse me in memory
Pulling off a suit (when I have to)
Driving
Keeping an open mind
Reciting pi... Mmmmm, pi...
Getting along with cats
Not noticing when I'm being overly judgemental (this is where you, the person with whom I am communicating, come in)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quiet
I'm weird
I'm random
... Mmmaybe that I'm a little tall or I have rather striking blue eyes (if the observer is the superficial type).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't really watch T.V. anymore, but I'm not averse to sitting and watching (most) shows with someone. Unless it's something on TLC. *Shudders*. My YouTube subscriptions consist of a pseudo-intellectual white rapper (probably not the one you are thinking of), three channels about cars, a science channel or two, and a guy who makes cartoons about a video game.

Food:
Pizza
Pastries
Mexican
Italian
(not only because you can make all of the above without meat, fairly easily)
Pad Thai

Music:
The Offspring
Folk Metal from Scandinavia (eg. Týr, Finntroll, Turisas, Korpiklaani...)
Beastie Boys
Gogol Bordello
Ludwig van Beethoven
Edvard Grieg
That Handsome Devil
(ie: most foreign music, classical music, or music that makes me think)

Books:
George Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four" (it was supposed to be a warning, not an instruction manual...)
Hugh Laurie (yes, as in "House, M.D.")'s "The Gun Seller"
James Redfield's "The Celestine Prophecy"
Dan Brown's "Robert Langdon" series
Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

Movies:
The Fifth Element, The Warriors, In Time, Brazil, Inside Man, most movies that Tim Burton directs, Ronin, Bullitt, "Dirty Harry" Series, the Roger Moore Bond movies (because they have the best back-up characters), Johnny Mnemonic, and so much more... I love movies, meaningful ones more so.
The six things I could never do without
Knowledge/sharing knowledge
Cars/something to tinker with
Food
The Sun/warm weather
Fun/excitement/unicorns
At least occasional travel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Happiness/Depression
Whether I'll find a serious relationship
Buddhist philosophies ("embrace disappointment; it will never let you down")
How I can eat a little bit healthier
What I can do to make my car (and maybe other peoples' cars) more awesome
If I'm in a good mood, probably breasts as well... (They are my favourite round object, with cookies and tires tied for a close second)
On a typical Friday night I am
... Inside reading a book, preparing for the race tomorrow, or playing video- or PC-games alone/with a friend/online.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I watched a good two-thirds of the episodes from "American Chopper"...
I’m looking for
  • Straight girls only
  • Ages 22–28
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
...you are a person. Bonus points if you are weird (ie. not boring). More bonus points if you enjoy thinking a lot. If you can keep a reasonably-open mind, you've hit the trifecta.
