My name is Jon and I just moved to Ft. Lauderdale. Probably the
most honest way of describing myself is inquisitive. I love to
learn about new things and listen to people talk. Whenever I see my
friends it typically turns into a discussion about some random
topic one of us found interesting.
That said living is the best learning experience of all. I've
traveled a lot in my life, and seeing the world is a passion of
mine. I'm going to visit every country in the world once, or die
I love getting different perspectives on life, so meeting new
people always seems like a brilliant idea.
What I’m doing with my life
Working to pay the bills D:
I recently added a new life goal of seeing the Atlanta Aquarium.
Not a lofty goal, but do I want to see the largest aquarium in the
world? Hell yeah I do.
I’m really good at
Engaging in fun random conversations. I find that what a person has
gone through in their life can be more fascinating than a book, so
I enjoy listening. One goal of mine is to find an interesting
homeless person and treat them to a meal in return for their life
I can also dream like a pro. My dreams are incredible adventures
where I fight zombies, save the planet, or combat aliens using
computer savvy and the ability to leap buildings. Feel free to ask
about being a power ranger.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've recently been told people notice my eye are very expressive.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: As I have 3 large bookshelves that dominate my room this
question is tough. Any Michael Crichton (R.I.P) book, Dresden
Files, Isaac Asimov books, American Gods, The Fountainhead,
Freakonomics, Siddhartha, and I could go on for a long time
Movies: The Other Guys, Boondock Saints, The Avengers, The Proposal
(not afraid to admit it, great movie), Get Him to the Greek,
Avatar, The Shawshank Redemption, North by Northwest, Scott Pilgrim
vs the World, Transformers (the 1980's nostalgia one)
Shows: Supernatural, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family,
Community, plus a few more, though I must say I hate most reality
shows. Top Gear receives the coveted favorite television show award
because of general hilarity and b-e-a-utiful cars.
Music: I will listen to pretty much any good song. It's more about
individual tracks than a genre as a whole. Hip-hop and country are
probably my two favorites though. Recently learned to love dubstep
Food: Oh god I love food. I enjoy going out to eat at any type of
restaurant, but a home cooked meal still tastes the best. I'm
currently learning how to cook better as well, which is making the
whole food thing that much better. Except bell peppers, those are
The six things I could never do without
-Food (I've been on the rice and water diet before and it's
terrible, so I've learned to appreciate having more than the basic
-Friends who keep my life interesting
-the ability to travel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to go in the future. I love to travel and I spend a
lot of time thinking about where I would like my next destination
to be, recommendations are always welcome.
I also contemplate the the complexities of simple constructions.
For example I spent a good hour thinking about the engineering and
construction of the case on my phone.
On a typical Friday night I am
Oh Friday my fickle friend. Sometimes my Fridays are a boring
stretch of work. Other weeks that day can consist of a night on the
town, partying with friends, chilling with friends, or curling up
with a book and blocking out the world
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Thanks to year of devouring plot, I can not predict the events of
media really easily. It's annoying, but makes surprise endings that
much more enjoyable.
You should message me if
You liked anything you read on my profile and have something
interesting in mind for conversation. Though I appreciate people
messaging me, I would prefer something more than "hi".
Or if you like trees.
