I got my BS in Psychology from UNC-Chapel Hill, and my MA in English at UF. Currently I'm working on my PhD studying New Media and Popular Culture in the English Dept. Graduate student life is somewhat isolating, so I love getting to know new people who aren't absorbed in the departmental affairs. New perspectives are crucial to staying fun and interesting. Plus, they multiply the chance for adventure by at least a factor of 10.
I'm a fairly eccentric sort of fellow seeking oddities. A companion to share such oddities would be nice too.
I'm easily distracted and excitable. I like tangents and getting lost and waffles.
Originally, I hail from Edisto Island, SC. It's an island the size of Manhattan with a year round population of 1000, so social protocol is sometimes beyond me. I grew up socializing with retired people in the south. It's not my fault. They stopped caring about social protocol a long time ago.
Imagination is escape. I especially love sci-fi, horror, and fantasy. I enjoy pretty much any sort of media content, especially comics, television, and movies.
Interesting people are rare, subversive people are rarer. It's best to meet as many as possible. The weirder the better. I seem to have an affinity for that sort of thing; weird is sexy.
I am frequently barefoot.
I only resemble one celebrity, Wil Wheaton, but I get it ALL THE TIME. At least among TNG fans. That's what I tell myself, to be honest, most of them probably only know him from Big Bang Theory, a show which I refuse to acknowledge on grounds of cultural taste and the general affront to nerdom that show generally represents.
Not sure what else to say. I'm no good at this one-sided 'getting to know you' thing. Besides, it's more interesting to get to know each other in conversation.
So I guess I'll leave it at this. I'm an open book, so if you have any questions, fire away. Or if you are just bored and want to distract yourself with a conversation, then that's ok too.
