My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is the part where I use 'I' a lot.

I am an archeologist, amateur aerialist, reader, writer, cyclist.

I look and live much younger than my biological age. I am very responsible, but also goofy, shy, awkward (favorite word ever,) and have a healthy inner child. I have a freakishly fast metabolism that requires me to eat large amounts of fried food and ice cream just to maintain my weight. I eat like a five year old (if said five year old had extremely irresponsible parents.)

When I win the lottery, I am going to hire Tim Burton to design a house with crooked architecture, secret passageways, and hallways that go nowhere.

Currently working twenty days a month in East Texas on an excavation, but in Austin for a few days every other week.

Update: Finished with the excavations in East Texas, and am back in Austin full-time. For now.

I don't care about money, but apparently other people do, so I'll just say that I earn more than I need, have no debt, and all of my vices are inexpensive, except for the occasional book buying binge.

Music is my serotonin uptake inhibitor.

Descriptors: Optimistic. Introverted. Stoic. Whimsically Humored. Meticulous. Awkward. Autoluminescent.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do not eat vegetables, condiments or sauces. These are borderline phobias for me. I wont hold it against you if you eat them.

When I was about eight years old a teacher told my class that, on average, a human being would take 13 million breaths before dying. Of course to my eight year old mind this meant that I had better start breathing slower, or better yet, hold my breath as long as I could, as often as I could. This greatly distressed my parents because they, more than once, found me passed out from holding my breath too long. I eventually wised up, but I still secretly enjoy holding my breath in hope of extended life.

I used to think that a roadrunner was my power animal/spirit guide, but now I am fairly certain that it is Iggy Pop.
