My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Intelligent, honest, caring, and generous is how I would best describe myself. Genuine is how my friends have described me. 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 probably just don't know how to recognize it.

While working towards my A.S. in Welding Technology, I would tell everyone I aspired to work on the California High-Speed Rail project that I may become a part of 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 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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just completed my Associate in Science degree in Welding Technology and continuing towards my Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. 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, but discovered that it's really not a good fit for me.

I've gotten back into martial arts, adding Tai Chi and Qigong to my repertoire.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
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?

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
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 that 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?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Who am i trying to kid? I'm usually just sitting at home watching Doctor Who. Occasionally, you can find me hanging lights for a show, going to see a show, or having dinner out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I don't wanna grow up. I'm a Toy's 'R' Us kid. I firmly believe that maturity is a fallacy. People don't grow up, they just grow old. If you observe people's behavior, you can pretty much see the kindergartener in everyone. Call me a man-child if you want, but I'm a man-child that still knows how to have fun! Responsible does not necessarily mean mature.
