My self-summary
Hey! I am a friendly cage-fighting physicist, painter, and computer nerd. I absorb things, get immersed in hobbies, and love to learn new skills and fields. Sometimes I get too excited about the things I learn, and try to teach them to other people. Hopefully they are into that.

I love discussions and avoid arguments. I love science, nature, long tempers, and clever people. I can find a reason to laugh at just about anything, and I love surrounding myself with smart, witty, quirky, compassionate people.

I like thinking about science, philosophy, art, gender dynamics, games, and stories, and love even more the chance to talk to someone about it.

I'm pretty serious about the Oxford comma.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning things, picking up new hobbies, and finding out what I want to do with the rest of my life. I've just moved to West Asheville (hence the new beard), and I'd like to meet some new people, too. Then again, by the time you read this, I might have been living here for a year...

I think I'd like to be a teacher or professor eventually, but not before I'm done filling my passport with stamps from a bunch of funny-sounding countries. I would also like to do something terribly irresponsible before then, too, like skydiving into a volcano, or taming a grizzly bear.
I’m really good at
I love painting and drawing - brains are amazing things, and words can only express half the cool ideas that they come up with.

I've also been studying Mixed Martial Arts very regularly for the last few years - you know, just in case the Zombie Apocalypse happens.

The list continues with a bunch of nerdy stuff like physics and math (like it or not, scientist is the closest you're ever going to get to being a wizard), coding (not quite as magical, but hey, I'll settle for a robot army), and Mario Kart.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've got a lot of hair, and it is REALLY blonde. A lifetime of nicknames like "Fabio" or "Legolas" have ensued. You know all those trashy romance novels, with the dashing flaxen-maned swashbuckler embracing some buxom lady in front of a sunset? Little known fact: that is me (it is not).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
With regards to music, I have a weakness for anything that mixes classical symphony styles with modern themes. Essentially, an electric violin is the key to my heart. Escala is fantastic, and the Piano Guys are on the list. I absolutely love Two Steps from Hell and E.S. Posthumus.

As for food, I'll eat just about anything. I'm sort of a half-vegetarian: I rarely eat meat, but I won't turn it away if it's already cooked and offered. I don't watch a lot of TV, and my taste in movies is pretty cheesy. I am immensely excited that a new Godzilla movie is finally coming out - that's how bad my taste in movies is. But man. I am pumped.

Update: Godzilla was awesome.
The six things I could never do without
Let me refrain from the obvious food/water/atmosphere jokes and go with the following:
-My family
-My close friends
-My health
-A place to learn! Books, School, the internet, etc.
-The outdoors
-A bunch of pencils, even more erasers, and a big stack of paper.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Oh goodness, my brain just spits out an endless stream of nonsense. It's like a room full of toddlers up there.

"That guy has a neat beard. Maybe I should grow my beard out. I heard a story about a guy who had spiders in his beard. I wonder if spiders can grow beards. Spiders have eight legs. The eighth episode of Happy Days is my favorite. Why doesn't the Fonz ever grow a beard? I bet he's afraid of spiders."

Update: I did grow my beard out. There are no spiders in it. I don't actually like Happy Days - I was just using that as an example - but I still do wonder why the Fonz never grew a beard.
On a typical Friday night I am
Absolutely no idea. I tend to just follow what other people are doing on Fridays, so it could be anything from camping to hanging out at a bar to playing video games with a friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am actually a werewolf, and I shed constantly. I hope you don't have allergies, and don't mind missing out on moonlit strolls. It's pretty gruesome. Don't tell anyone, internet.
You should message me if
You're smart, you're funny, and you're maybe a little bit nerdy.

Oh, and if you have a good Zombie Apocalypse plan, 'cause I want to get in on that.
