I loathe constant negativity although I am by no means without my down days. I have this hanging at my work desk ( http://i.imgur.com/OFPcbuk.jpg ) Bonus points if you know what it is from. Anyway, my philosophy on life kind of boils down to a strange mix of that and the quote "The Dude abides". Again, bonus points if you get it.
I'm technically minded and pragmatic. I used to build Legos a lot when I was little and I built an awesome beach chair and lamp in a shop class in eighth grade. I'm actually looking into where I can take woodworking classes. Give me something from Ikea and I will build it for you with pleasure. I like to learn how things work, which has led me to be handy with computers as well as most electronics. I'm my family's tech support/handy man. This has extended to them getting me to fix their friend's stuff, whether it be a laptop or cable TV setup.
I like geeky things, so I guess that makes me a geek? I don't know, I've never been good with labels. I dig webcomics. I watch a lot of cartoons and Comedy Central with a dash of trashy reality TV. The whole computers thing falls under this as well. I used to play video games a lot but these days I rarely top an hour or two a week. I have a bit of a passion for bowling even though I rarely get the chance to go anymore.
I don't believe in guilty pleasures. As long as you've got well rounded tastes and enjoy "good" things with the bad, you shouldn't feel bad for enjoying something others might not. I can get as much fun out of watching something dumb like Surf Nazis Must Die as I would from The Grand Budapest Hotel, albeit for different reasons. Like what you like, you know?
I'm just a kind, genuine person. Please don't confuse that with being a "nice guy". I don't wear a fedora, I don't think women only date assholes and I'm certainly not an MRA. I'm simply considerate of others because I believe that's the best way to try to make the world a better place. I hold doors for people behind me and always say thank you. I've gotten a newspaper for an older gentleman on the street that I didn't even know just because he asked me. I try to help whenever I can and I try not to make a fuss. Life has enough drama as is without people making even more over nothing. I'm just an honest and straightforward person and I'm looking for someone similar. I think the Dalai Lama was on to something when he said "My religion is kindness".
btw, I'm just now getting with the times and have an instagram account at instagram.com/becktionary. Look at the dumb pictures I take! I also have a twitter account @becktionary. I make no promises about it being interesting though.
