My self-summary
I'm a fourth year graduate student at Temple (Computer and Information Science, hopefully finishing by June 2015) who listens to a lot of metal, spends far too much time online, and collects items of questionable aesthetic value. I tend to be honest to the point of near brutality, and generally have a very sarcastic sense of humor, which usually means that most people think that I am an asshole rather than funny until they actually get to know me. I love pretty much any type of intellectual or moral conversation/debate, but absolutely detest political discussion as it holds no interest to me whatsoever. I also don't follow sports. Like, at all.

I was born and raised in Russia so I am fluent in Russian, but having lived stateside for more than half my life has more or less ensured that English is my primary language, and most people don't realize it's my second language until I tell them. It doesn't help that I love reading, and it's a lot easier to get books in English. I actually considered going into a more literature-oriented field before going into mathematics and computer science, and have opted instead to edit and proofread papers for various individuals. I am also currently involved in a joint effort on writing a short story / novella for fun.

While I don't play, music is a huge part of my life. I have four pairs of headphones for different occasions, and all of them see frequent use. Even bought a guitar one fine drunken afternoon, though I haven't had the time or drive to really sit down and teach myself.

As a very introverted individual who has been a student most of his life I don't have many hobbies that involve the outdoors, despite living so close to the hustle and bustle of Philadelphia. That is not to say I'm not up for a night out on the town, it might just require a bit of cajoling.
What I’m doing with my life
Hopefully finishing my PhD program within the next year, and then seeing where the chips fall (current possibilities include going into editing for scientific journals, becoming a full-time researcher, or possibly working for Google).
I’m really good at
- writing
- mental math
- appearing smarter than I actually am
- cooking meat
- video games
- procrastina
The first things people usually notice about me
Either the robotic stare or that I'm always sporting headphones.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - pretty much everything by Stephen King, Frank Herbert, and Sergei Lukyanenko. Also classics like Kafka and Dumas that I revisit from time to time.

Movies - classic action flicks like Die Hard and Lethal Weapon, and psychological/horror flicks like Event Horizon and Cube. I also have a soft spot for Ben Stiller, and must have seen Zoolander 10 times by now. Terminator 2 will forever be my favorite movie of all time though.

Shows - Old Simpsons, Futurama, Metalocalypse, Castle, Friends, The Walking Dead, House, Firefly, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, That 70's Show, Whose Line Is It Anyway, How I Met Your Mother (despite what a sack of shit the ending was).

Music - In Flames, Soilwork, Disarmonia Mundi, Mudvayne, Scar Symmetry, Disturbed, Queens of the Stone Age, Mercenary, Eluveitie, Dark Tranquility, The Slot. More or less any flavor of metal except the whiny -core's and the blackest stuff that's totally unintelligible. I also grew up listening to a ton of classical rock, and get back to it on occasion.

Video Games - STALKER, Fallout, Mass Effect, Portal, XCOM, Civilization V, DotA.

Food - meat and vegetables, Chinese food. Also beef jerky.
The six things I could never do without
1. Pandora
2. YouTube
3. H20
4. Pork
5. Hazelnut coffee creamer
6. Sarcasm
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Zombies. Also why the "You might like" section of this site is so goddamn inaccurate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Listening to really loud music and hoping it doesn't damage my hearing. Too much. Or watching YouTube videos (most likely Two Best Friends Play). Spoiler: I don't get out very much.

It has been eight years since my last (and only) relationship.
