My self-summary
Update:

Hey all, I work long hours on the weekends so if you see me on and want someone to chat to, you should definitely shoot me a message.

Profile:

Well, out of many of the guys on here, I'm not looking for a relationship, or random sex right now. Awkward I know, breaking stereo types and what not.

What I am looking for is cool people and hoping I'll find people with similar interests, and who are supportive of friends as I've found many of my once friends are not anymore.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm establishing myself in a career in IT. I don't want to be working in IT, but it pays better than what my degree would have gotten so I've put school on hold for a little bit of time to get myself financially grounded, as well as establish myself a, even if temporary, here in Columbus. I since coming to college, have thought of this place as a temporary stepping stone on the way to life, and I've realized that Life is now and not later. I guess you could say I've already had my first mid life crisis and am recovering :p,
I’m really good at
I enjoy writing, particularly poetry, I'm not having much luck with fiction right now but it comes and goes. I play the viola, which is a slightly bigger fiddle for the non classically inclined, and am considering studying Celtic and Gypsy themed tunes for Pennsic. (YAY PENNSIC, if you don't know you should ask me, and if you do know, are you going this year? It's been the best vacation activity I've ever had).

I like working with my hands, and am often melancholic that I don't have a place to put machine tools or really any space for extensive hobbies right now. I've done a little paper making and book binding, I'm working on learning to sew (I'm straight, if that at all matters) so I don't have to spend a fortune on garb for pennsic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm god awfully tall, and have been told at times that I'll walk into a room and dominate it with my presence and other times shy away into the background. So I guess if someone notices me it's either my height, my red hair, or the fact that I'm lanky.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is such a broad category,

I like most kinds of music and the more moving and socially relevant the more i'll listen to it (i.e. flobots). I've been listening to genre cross overs a lot, classical/dubstep, techno/rap. Most currently played: The XX, Incubus, Pink Floyd, Mumford and Sons, Benjamin Leftwich Harris, Of Monsters and Men...

I don't know if I could choose a favorite book, meaning one I would read over and over again, because I don't. I enjoy Allens Ginsberg, and Aldo Leopold, Thereau was kind of a hypocrite but Emmerson was pretty good. I've read Wallace Stegner, which I prefer strongly to Hemingway... I could go on for hours. If you have a good interpretation on the Wasteland you should let me know, I've never found anyone else who feels they have a good handle of it.
The six things I could never do without
Distractions from an otherwise unexciting existence from working third shift.

My fountain pen and a constantly shifting variety of paper scraps.

Books.

Music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make positive changes in my life. I'm moving into a new apartment and working on decorating it, and due to my "big boy" (yes air quotes) salary trying to revamp my wardrobe so I can look like I care mildly about what I look like.

If you know anything about male fashion and want to help out let me know, I'm pretty oblivious.
On a typical Friday night I am
For the next few months working, I have a wierd schedule and on my days off I often try to spend my time outside doing things.

Lyrics of the .... Day? Week? Whenever I get around to changing it again?
In the face
Of change
That's when she turned to me and said
"I'm not sure anymore"

And there
Amidst the waves and the cloudless skies
That blanket the year before
I watch my life wash ashore

Have you ever been a part of something
That you thought would never end?
And then, of course it did
Have you ever felt the weight inside you
Pulling away inside your skin?
And then something had to give

Now the lines are drawn
Is this feeling gone?
The best parts of this have come and gone
And now that is all this is
With the reasons clear
We'll spend another year
Without direction, full of fear
And now things will be different

There's nothing simple when it comes to you and I
Always something in this everchanging life
And there probably always will
Now that time is getting harder to come by,
The same arguments are always on our mind
{We've} killed this slowly fading light
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]

Now the lines are drawn
Is this feeling gone?
The best parts of this have come and gone
And now that is all this is
With the reasons clear
We'll spend another year
Without direction, full of fear
But now things will be different

And now something
Has kept me here too long
And you can't leave me
If I'm already gone

Well now something (hey)
Has kept me here too long
And you can't leave me (hey)
If I'm already gone

Now let's say that something (hey)
Has kept me here too long
And you can't leave me (hey)
If I'm already gone

And we make the same mistakes
We're always hanging on
Break the promises we're always leaning on
All this time spent waking up
{Now I} keep this line open to get this call from you
{As you} speak the words that keep me coming back to you
Now this time it's all different

Now something
Has kept me here too long
And now I'm gone
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never made a profile on here looking for just friends, silly maybe but who knows.

Best ways to get to know my taste in entertainment. Start listening to neutral milk hotel, watch Waking Life, and Synecdoche New York, and develop a healthy relationship with trance, electro, dubstep etc.
Also you should probably read Edgar Allen Poe, and H.P Lovecraft, but if "Literature" is more your speed, read Big Rock Candy Mountain by Wallace Stegner. For the cliffnotes version read: A River Runs Through It, by Norman McClean. **Do people even know what cliffnotes are anymore?**
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 21–28
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You can hold up your end of an conversation in politics, history, the sciences, the arts, etc. I consider myself pointedly well read, not extensively though. Or if you would enjoy going to see a play/opera, going to an art museum, or enjoy mindbending cerebral movies (thanks netflix).

I can be very introverted at times and extroversion at other times. What that means there are times I'd rather sit in silence and be alone than be around people. It's a balance thing.
