My self-summary
I am JJ. No, Jack is not my name but yes, I do think myself a Jack of Trades. I am Chaotic Neutral and INTJ (but I am borderline most)

Here are some keywords that give you a rough idea of who I am: nerd/geek*, pseudo-cultured**, over-analyzing, open-minded, skeptic, dark humored, random, stubborn***, intelligence****, extroverted-introvert, creative, and caring.

* Video Games; reading; socially awkward at times; enjoys learning, discussing and debates; Ren Faires, Cons, etc...
** I wear suits (even tails), I drink wine and fancy dinners, and acting gentlemanly, but I like the simple things as well and did grew up in the country.
*** Could read as independent and self-sufficient.
**** Above average in most types of intelligence testing with reading and phonics being my weakest areas. I also know intelligence does not equal wisdom and know I lack that.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a BA in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. I am currently looking at getting a Master in Education or Social Work. I want to teach or counsel people.

I am working on a few books both fiction and non-fiction.

I am also: Running, filming, recording, woodworking, brewing (wine/mead), DIY projects, chain-mailing (think armor), gaming, writing, reading, working in a medical lab, and exploring.
I’m really good at
One of my friends said it best: "Your favorite hobby is having hobbies."

I am a polymath, renaissance man, and jack-of-trades, a master of none, but I am good with my hands. I have also been noted for my creative use of my skills which normally helps makes up for my lack of master-level craftsmanship
The first things people usually notice about me
Glasses?!

The things people don't usually notice about me right away (according to friends)

"Let's see: You may seem to some to be self-involved; at least when people first meet you (I think it is just your Aspergers); if anyone ask you for help with just about anything you are willing to go through hell and high water to help them. If someone has a crazy or weird idea that would freak most people out, you instead will encourage them and help them complete it.

And maybe the weirdest thing about you, you really listen, I mean really. Not just politely stand there, you engage and ask questions and offer advice about any topic someone wants to talk to you about. Who the hell does that?"
- Bart

"You can talk about almost anything seamlessly weave in and out of topics and can to the same with different groups and conversations. I think your job is also super surprising considering your personality." - Ana
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite... that is always hard for me to choice. I enjoy so many different styles and types of media. I read horror, fantasy, dystopian, sci-fi, drama, comics, manga, comedy, history, essays, poems, random facts, and just about anything. Same goes for movies, TV, and YouTube shows, plus I enjoy cartoons, adult entertainment, stuff on the cooking and home and garden networks. Like I said I am a bit all over the place. I also like to add that I love games as well; not just video games but board games, cards games, and games of any type. Music is no different; I can enjoy rap, country, folk, electronic, and much more. I mainly listen to rock and metal, but I like songs from every genre. Food... you guessed it I am up for eating anything; I do have a prefer every now and then but I am open to new foods.
The six things I could never do without
The same basic things every other bi-pedal ape-descends need to survive or ensure survival of the species. However, I am sure you want to know things beside water, food, family or/and friends, recreation actives, and sex?

Here is a list of things I would prefer to keep if I had a choice: a computer, the internet, games, some sort of media streaming service, paper, and books.

On a typical Friday night I am
Moving and settling into a new area means my Friday nights will be a mix of exploring or just sitting at home doing some of my hobbies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was in a garage band in the late 90s and early 00s.
I am a sapiosexual.
You should message me if
Because you want to. I am not afraid of someone else making the first move.
