Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey, I'm Chris. Talking about myself like this isn't something I'm
great at, but let's give it a go. I grew up in NY, and moved out
west about 5 years ago. Originally it was for school but I never
ended up leaving.
I graduated college a few years ago, but the school was terrible
and the degree was worthless, so nothing really happened for a
couple of years. Eventually got tired of sititng around doing
nothing, and decided to take control of my life and go back to
school and get a degree from a real school. It’s been going well
and it feels great to be working towards something.
If asked to use one word to describe my interests, that word would
certainly be gamer. It’s been my hobby since I was a child and I
still have all my old consoles Enjoy all types of games, and
getting a group of friends together to play something like Mario
Kart, Smash, or Halo is always a lot of fun.
Aside from school and gaming, I spend time watching Netflix,
watching movies and occasionally hanging out with friends.
If there's anything else you want to know check out my answered
questions. I've answered quite a few of them, it kinda just sucks
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going back to school right now for computer science. It was a
little daunting going back so late but I know it will lead to
better things, Got a retail job at the moment to (mostly) pay the
bills. I hope to start interning somewhere in around a year when I
get my associates and transfer to a 4 year school.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing games, getting lost in wikipedia, spending an unhealthy
amount of time in Netflix and learning how not to do things, and
coming up with the most inappropriate responses to things people
say. Most people seem to find me funny once I open up to them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can be rather quiet when I'm still in the "getting to know you"
phase but I open up fairly quickly, I've gotten some great friends
over the past few years that have really helped me come out of my
shell a lot easier.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't read as much as I used to but I do love a good book every
so often. I enjoy reading Stephen King and John Grisham,
Recently read the Hunger Games trilogy, and The Brethren. about to
start Under the Dome
I watch a lot of TV. I've never seen a Joss Wheodon production I
haven't enjoyed. Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, all great. I
enjoy Supernatural, Arrow, L&O SVU, Falling Skies, Person of
Interest and if we include web series, Red Vs Blue, and RWBY. I'm
currently making up for lost time and plowing through Doctor Who on
Netflix 'll stop there but I go on for 20 more lines easy.
Doesn't fall under the given categories, but felt like I should
include my gaming tastes. Love Final Fantasy, Tales, Zelda, Mass
Effect, Resident Evil(even 6, yea I know I'm weird), Silent
Hill, Left 4 Dead, Halo, and many more. Pretty much as long as it's
not sports I'll give it a try. Recently I've been enjoying Mario
Kart 8 and Infamous: Second Son.
My favorite game I've ever played is Final Fantasy VI. I loved the
story, I loved the art. I loved all the characters and how they all
played an important role to the point that you could say there was
no true lead character. Also the music from the game is amazing and
many of the tracks are some of my favorite in all gaming. Also
Kefka. Best megalomaniacal sociopath ever.
My movie tastes are broad and I'll really give anything a try. My
favorite movie is Airplane and I love all the old spoof movies like
Spaceballs, and Naked Gun. I think it's really sad what the genre
has devolved into in recent years. Some of the semi-recent movies
I've loved include Captain America: Winter Soldier, Godzilla, and
I'm an omnivore, I'll try almost anything once. A while back I got
into cooking. Wouldn't call myself a gourmet chef but I do enjoy
trying new recipes and it's cheaper and healthier than buying
micowave dinners/fast food all the time. Also tastes better.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends and family are important to me.
I spend a lot of time on my computer so I guess life would be a
little more boring if a boulder randomly fell on it.
I don't explore it as much as I like but I do like to stop and
enjoy nature. Watching animals go about and do their stuff or the
wind moving the trees. Life would suck without all that, and it's
sad that the whole Simpsons gag of a hologram tree being "in memory
of a real tree" will likely be true someday.
hmmm, only 3......uh water, blood, and a beating heart...Though I
guess I could get one of those machines that pumps my blood for
me....down to five.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Wondering how I ended up in southern California given my preference
for cold climates.
Also where I'm going to be in a few years. That's one of the things
that really got me going seriously with this school thing. Starting
school from scratch at my as age is scary , but the thought of
being exactly where I was before 4 years down the road was even
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I know it sounds cliche, but I'm really not that private a person,
There isn't much I won't be willing to tell someone after talking
to them for a little bit. So just ask.
