My self-summary
I'm riding the shopping cart all the way back to the corral. Where I'm from, they call 'em buggies, though. Do they call them buggies here, too?

I'm into people who are into books. I'm into books! I keep my self-interest at a healthy level.

I like wandering around new places. I value direct communication, but I realize it's hard to establish that with everyone, especially when we grow up learning to be polite and coy and not too much of either one.

Finding friends by using an algorithm feels like the future, and the future is going to be pretty much like the present, except everything's faster, including the pop-up error messages. I'm getting better at clicking OK, but I don't want to just acknowledge the world. There's a lot of work to do.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to BCS the day before Thanksgiving in 2014 and I still don't know many folks out here. But I probably will eventually so maybe this can help with new experiences.
I’m really good at
Critical thinking and solving problems. I like puzzles and logical questions. The puzzler is the best part of Car Talk and honestly one of the only reasons I listen. I also like to think I can write well though I've never sat down and honestly tried it. Because I'm embarrassed of all the things I try and write. I think I'm good at running tabletop RPG's and if you know what I'm talking about there then I'll probably be a lifetime friend of yours.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a tall guy. Wait are we talking physically or just in general? I guess I'm pretty sarcastic. Man I need a haircut. That's what you'll notice first. "That guy needs a haircut."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This list of books is going to consist of books I like. The quality of their literary importance shouldn't be considered:
Foundation, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Dune (space politics!) Discworld (!), Wikipedia (counts as a book), webcomics.

Movies are weird. I like Dr. Horrible and Primer. You've never seen Primer!! I'm a jerk for saying I like it so much.

Oh man Music. What I'm listening to now is chiptuney-sounding pop music. PlayRadioPlay!, Owl City, and the Postal Service.

Food: I don't like coffee. It tastes like burnt wood. Why do people drink burnt wood?
The six things I could never do without
Google teaching me how to do my job
Chromecast
Podcasts
GPS
Access to the entire world via network telecommunications

Awareness of how privileged I am to have those earlier five things be something I could never do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How it is that the choices I've made in life have led me to this collapsed reality.
On a typical Friday night I am
Me and the party scene don't get along so well. It isn't that I don't like it. See I don't often drink so I can't keep up the conversation with the party scene. And plus the party scene can kind of be a pretencious snob. So party scene's number is in my phone, but we don't really talk much. We're facebook friends though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm charismatic because I'm afraid of people not liking me.
You should message me if
If you don't mind showing a person new to BCS that doesn't have the luxury of being in college as a social anchor. As much as I'd like to go out, doing it alone is an uphill battle for me and if I don't reach out for new friends I'll end up hiding in my apartment all weekend.
