My self-summary
Intelligent, honest, caring, and generous is how I would best describe myself. I'm too socially naive to "play games". I'm definitely no Swarley! I've been known to have a conversation with a woman and not realize that she's hitting on me; granted, it happens so infrequently that I just don't know how to recognize it.

While I was in a welding program, I would tell everyone I aspired to work on the California High-Speed Rail project that I may perpetuate a long-time American tradition by being a Chinese railroad worker . I enjoy playing into stereotypes. Yes, I drive like an old Chinaman and we all look alike (I even have a picture to prove it!). I do have quite the sarcastic tongue and believe irony to be a great tool for humor.

At work and in the classroom, I'm outgoing and boisterous, but outside of those environments, say a bar or club, I'm terribly shy. I just don't know how to approach someone without context or some established commonality.

I like taking walks, hiking, snowboarding, whitewater rafting, and paintball. I'd go biking more, but have been too lazy to buy new inner tubes for my mountain bike. I long to go camping and fishing. It's been years since I've pitched a tent in the woods or strung up my rod (No, that's not an euphemism, but it probably should be!).
What I’m doing with my life
I just completed my Associate in Science degree in Welding Technology (which I plan to turn into a Business degree) while continuing towards my Bachelor of Science degree in Theatre Arts. Eventually, a Master's degree is in order, but I'm taking it one step at a time.

I am a recent transfer to Southern Oregon University in Ashland, OR. in the Theatre Arts Department.

Lately, I've been on an exercise kick, working out 4-5 days a week. Since I have a lot of time on my hands, rather than turning into a couch potato, I decided to get into shape and stay fit. It's been a crazy roller coaster of fitness.
I’m really good at
Teaching
Target shooting
Martial arts (Kajukenbo)
General chemistry (MacGyver and Dungeon & Dragons were my motivation)

A Dungeons & Dragons geek at heart, I have managed to turn myself into a Fighter/Magic-User, literally. Welding is using lightning to create lava. When I toss a hot electrode stub at someone, I'm "casting" a magic missile, if I've got the amperage turned up too high and the electrode catches fire, it becomes my +1 Flaming Dagger, and when I set off some thermite it's like casting a 2nd level Fireball spell! Yeah, it's geeky, but what's a nerd to do?

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I can't help but wonder why so many people say they want to make friends, but refuse to build a friendship. Relationships, platonic or otherwise, take time and effort. The best relationships begin as friends, yet so few are willing to take the first step. So, why are so many unwilling just to make new friends? My theory is that they are lying to themselves. They really want an instant "relationship" without having to do the work, while hiding behind the guise of "making new friends". There is no such thing as a drive-thru window for friendship. Is it really so bad to have an abundance of friends?
