Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, my name is Zach. I'm originally from Tucson, Arizona. I'm
stationed in Seattle, and I've been falling in love with this city.
I want to explore all the restaurants, the shops, the little
hole-in-the-walls. Yes, all of them *grins*.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an E-5 in the Coast Guard, most likely looking to go career.
I'm stationed on a polar ice breaker out of Seattle. Just got back
from a patrol down to Antarctica, with stops in Honolulu, Sydney,
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Piano (primarily improv, but I'm classically trained), video games
(generalist, not a specialist), weapons training (specifically
sparring with practice weapons), and writing (when I have time). I
also enjoy board games, and I've done both pen and paper RPGs and
more informal RP as well. Conversation!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to talk a great deal, usually in an animated and
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I own a ridiculous number of books, primarily science
fiction and fantasy. Authors that jump out: Robert Heinlein,
Mercedes Lackey, Anne McCaffrey, Terry Pratchet (highly
recommended), and David Weber. Brandon Sanderson is probably my
current favorite. Also, I am always on the hunt for new authors in
my preferred genres so feel free to suggest one or two to me
Movies: Mostly action, with a weakness for Kung Fu. I *will* watch
other things, but usually at someone else's instigation. That being
said, I have a weakness for "The Princess Bride" like you wouldn't
Shows: I watch a great deal of Anime, ranging from Trigun to Wolf's
Rain to Clannad. Also Firefly (of course) and Castle. Burn Notice
is also awesome.
Food: As long as it's not terribly spicy, and it isn't boat food,
I'll probably be onboard.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Coast Guard
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honestly? How other people view me.
I also try to be as rational as I can about things. At the moment
I'm spending a lot of time thinking about what morality actually
*is* and how I can be a better human.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either standing watch on the boat, unwinding after a long week, or
being social with my friends and/or family. I've also been known to
play a computer game or two, or go to a local board game store and
try something new.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an open book. If you're curious about something and think
you're being too forward by asking—you're not! Go ahead and ask
anything. Sex questions are okay, too; I'm confident with myself
and comfortable with the subject. There's not much I wouldn't be
willing to answer.
