My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My first impulse with this section is to start a bunch of sentences with "I" and list off a plethora of adjectives. That just seems rather trite and dull though. In an attempt to put a creative spin on the cliché statement "I hate writing about myself," let me just say I hate this site and having to come up with an identity to sell. It's bullshit, plain and simple.

I like to believe first impressions aren't all that important, that people change over time, and that it's better to leave a good last impression. Besides, it takes some time to perform any act of generosity. I also know that I've had a significant improvement in personality in just the past few years. Ok, I guess if you really want an adjective, here it is...
I am melioristic.

My sense of humor tends to be a dry, dark, and observational flavor. Case in point, picking up a knife at the mall that says "try me." I also love Mitch Hedberg jokes. Sometimes I end up joking about some sort of paradox and having to explain it, but then it just ends up being not funny (sorry). I reddit to procrastinate and I often communicate online via youtube links, which probably grew out of my habit of quoting movies and tv shows.

A relationship with me isn't going to be static, not like a romance novel (I don't know what romance novels are like actually; forgive the stereotype). I care very deeply for the people who are close to me, but I'm still learning that whole time management thing and figuring out how to balance where I focus my energy. So, fair warning: I've been accused of being a workaholic before.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently majoring in cybersecurity and have 1 more year full of electives to complete my degree: abstract algebra, number theory, network programming, and research in text mining. I'm somewhat active in the campus community as I'm a student leader in the residence halls and President of the NIU Veterans Association. I also work as a TA and will be writing the assignments for java programming in the fall semester over this summer. I intend to pursue a doctorate and become a professor, but am unsure which direction to take in that regard.

For hobbies, aside from reading the web and playing a video game when I have free time, I have been taking violin lessons for a number of years now. I'm still a beginner in my opinion, though I get enough praise from friends who don't/can't hear when I'm out of tune or some other type of mistake. Sometimes I will program something for my own amusement or to save time with some mundane task, but I'm not sure I would call it a hobby, it's mostly just for work.

I do plan to share my life with someone someday, but love has been difficult for me to find. The friend I grew up with is already married and has kids, and I'm not super envious, but I do end up spending time thinking about when that is going to happen in my life. At least I sort of get the experience vicariously when I go to visit, and he's admitted he thinks I'll be a great father some day.

Books: I really really like Neal Stephenson

Movies: The only ones I liked recently are 2 Guns and Despicable Me 2. Well, the Marvel films too.

Shows: Frontline, Game of Thrones, Archer, Futurama, Family Guy, and Red Vs. Blue

Music: Surprisingly, silence lately. I have an odd taste in movie and video game soundtracks overall with classical thrown in from playing the violin and 90's alternative when I'm feeling nostalgic.

Food: typical American cuisine. For booze, I like cider, hard lemonade, and fruit wines.
