People have such a hard time describing themselves but I think those are four categories in which I'd put myself.
I have my masters degree in applied intelligence. What is that you might ask? I'm gonna be the next James Bond. Except not really. Applied intelligence has given me great research skills and the ability to make confident predictions about things. I got my BA from UT in political science. Love me some college football and love a lively debate about politics, or football, or the politics of football. I also read a lot. Usually non-fiction. But I do dabble in fiction from time to time Essentially, I'm a big nerd. But it's ok. Chances are you give me twenty minutes and I can answer just about any question you toss at me.
I love languages. I know some French and Chinese. I also know a bit of a few other languages. I also like to learn about cultures through any medium (food, music, art,etc).
I realized a few years back that manners count. Not to say I'm a stick in the mud, I can throw down when need be, but I also know that there are proper ways to handle things. The proper way usually leads to a reduction in drama and juvenile behavior, something everyone seems to try and avoid these days.
Lastly, I'm funny. I work around people who are generally pissy when I see them so I have to be funny. A great joke here or a twisted little comment there. Whatever it takes to make them laugh. I have ongoing jokes with customers that we still get great laughs from weeks after the joke was brokered. I will admit that though my sense of humor tends to be a bit dry and slightly twisted at times, I still get laughs.
So, when it comes down to it, I'm awesome. Even if it's just as a friend. Heck, all of my good friends live out of state or a descent distance away. So, if I seem interesting, don't hesitate to send me a message.
**I have two disclaimers. I don't drive. I'm a logistical genius when it comes to getting around, though. I will assure you that I am not looking for someone to haul me around town.
Also, I am not into WoW, D&D, Magic the Gathering, etc. I've dated people that have been and it has not worked out.**
