Rhetorical questions aside...
After getting way too many 'suggestions' from some friends attempting to be 'helpful' on what to write here... I'm going to ignore all that noise. It would be disingenuous to put more 'acceptable' things here that are not truly what is... yours truly.
This boy is fairly straightforward on what he does and doesn't do. I have no desire to mess around with couching and overt sugar coating. If i can't actually have a civil and honest conversation, there really isn't much of a point is there?
I'm a walking set of contradictions: optimist and pessimist at the same time. Believe the universe has a perverse sense of humor and the universe has no controller. It just 'happens'. Welcome to the wonderful world of happy accidents.
I am a fairly giving person but i am fairly distrustful of many people. My Cynicism being what it is and how it developed. On the flip side of that i like to think people will show the better side of humanity even though i keep my expectations very low.
If you expect nothing, you'll never be disappointed.
You'll find I am a very giving person at heart. I can also be a very selfish person when the mood strikes but that gets mitigated by my keeping the other person's feelings in mind.
Most to all of what i do has one effort level: 100%
I do very little half way.
That has no bearing on some day to day stuff. I have my lazy streaks just like everyone else.
I'm an IT guy. I get paid for my hobby. If i need to elaborate feel free to ask. I think that should be fairly self explanatory though. Just be prepared. =D
If you are around me, you don't get to be one of those people who incessantly gives the answers of "I don't care", "Whatever" and/or "I don't know" when asked a question about things like where to go out to eat, etc. Then complain about the choice made. I asked you the question because I wanted to know what you'd like to do. Not because i wanted to release hot air into the atmosphere and disturb air molecules with sound waves. If you aren't going to make up your mind I'm going to do it for you. Unless the situation is a very complex one, i will not spend a bunch of time agonizing over it. Decision gets made from information set I currently possess. This does not mean that given new/more information/evidence means i wont change my mind.
I really don't waste a bunch of time on overt processing with social situations, which is why I often refer to myself as a 'social idiot'. My straightforward nature tends to make some uncomfortable. As someone recently reminded me, "You should be playing chess not checkers". This makes me tired. I don't feel like I should have to put forth that much effort. Its mental work enough dealing with your own decision tree without having to tack on everybody else's. Besides, that just starts to wander into the realm of manipulation and I'm not into that.
Yes i play video games. I haven't done consoles since the Super Nintendo. Did I show my age on that one?
Back to an old friend of mine recently:World of Warcraft. I raid a couple of nights a week and i enjoy the folks I hang with in game.
Another favorite of mine is the Deus Ex series. If you know it, I guarantee you will get a good conversation out of me about it.
you have questions?: ask away!
If you actually read through this wall of text and aren't comatose. congrats!
