My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I value knowledge most in my life.
I am a person mentally interested in many things. I like to talk about many things and learn about even more. Anything and everything is open to conversation. If it isn't something I immediately know about, then if it or you interest me, I will learn about it quite quickly.

I recently moved to Fort Collins from Laramie to better my life. I am more actively eating healthier, I work out 9 workouts in a week. I have developed a plan as to where I am taking my life. I know all of the things I want to complete on the way there. It would be awesome to have someone to spend that time, and enjoy that journey with.

Communication is essential in relationships. It is also very important to me as an individual. I like to know many things, and I ask a lot of questions. ALWAYS. That is a big part of who I am. I learn best through reading textbooks cover to cover. Sadly for me there are no textbooks for each person I interact with in day to day life. So i have other methods I can learn in. Primarily the questioning any and all about everything. If you can't acknowledge why you made a choice or took a step... how can you know that it was the right one?

I am often very blunt in interactions, I have been told I sometimes speak in monotone if I am avoiding arguing. All that aside though, I am a pretty sarcastic guy and I can take a step back and not only ask questions. Just loafing around is fine, just not all the time. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently moved to Fort Collins to better my life. I came down here to have a mental fresh start. I moved down here from Laramie Wyoming. I was born and raised there. I came down here to experience a few new things and meet new and different kinds of people. I have a few active hobbies that I do with my spare time. I work at Poudre Valley Hospital as a relief worker. Relief is... not a good term for it though. I have a full schedule each week. Someone always wants time off or needs it off for some reason. I like the job. It also allows me the opportunity to progress in the field I want to. What I have went to school for initially. I want to become a traveling RN. After I have been at this job a little while I will be able to start taking classes to progress me further along that path. I have my life more planned than most care to think through. But I have my general plan, and it grows progressively more detailed as it becomes closer along my path to the present day.

Perpetual progression. Never stagnate. That is my life goal.
I hope that I find someone to enjoy the time I spend on this goal. If you aren't making yourself better every day... through knowledge, experience, or your choices... Who's going to make those choices for you? Who shall make YOU better? So I choose to make me better. Everyday. Learn something actively and not just be another worker bee.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at my hobbies. I play Magic the Gathering a lot. I travel many weekends making money on my travels for the game. I play Hearthstone quite a bit when I am home as well. In general I like card games. I am very financially responsible. Very good at balancing a checkbook and planning for bills and necessities within their time frames of need. I am a very logic based person. I think through my decisions. I know why I choose what I do. I am good at know me and my choices. I value learning. But I learn in a very different way than most others. I tend to think it is something I am good at. Learning. Could be that I am just good at learning things I want to though.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think a lot. I'm more quiet in the beginning in real life situations, gauging and reading the people around me. Then when I'm more comfortable... or comfortable enough I'll talk more. If you ask me I am confident. Some people say that I have an almost too assertive approach to interactions. I am a dominant personality type. I've been told I speak different than most. I have been told my approach to life is unique and not something to be told to everyone. My realistic and impartial views of most everything offset people often. But some of those are all things that take time to look into. Not the first thing someone notices. I have to open my mouth before a person learns much about me.
I have never actually asked anyone what they notice first. Judging a book by it's cover is a very poor way to assess people I believe. They have to talk, be pushed to think and assessed while such things are instigated. You learn a lot about people if you can see their thought lines.
As for the initial... what shall you notice?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books-I enjoy Philosophy and Psychology books mostly if I get to choose what I am reading. Philosophy is quickly changing into reading books on the human body though. So many small things that I don't know about just yet. Overall most commonly willing to read anything that I don't know about though.
I read some fiction, not much though. When I do it is always fantasy and commonly full of manipulative demons trying to attain more then they are allowed to. That being said although she is not a demon, my favorite character in books I have read is Guenhwyvar. I know she isn't a main character, but Drizzt is simply labeled a non conformist in most situations. Gwen at least alters when she acts certain ways. :)

Movies-I like most horror movies in the end. I prefer the thinker ones rather than the mass blood and gore entertainment ones.
My favorite movie is Good Will Hunting though. I also like A Beautiful Mind a lot. Nightmare Before Christmas is my favorite animated movie.

Shows-I don't watch T.V. or any mediums that would allow me to see shows on it often. I would say that I do enjoy watching House on occasion though.

Music-Music is an important part of my life. It fuels my daily speed and mentality. I listen primarily to Metal. I have a heavy preference to female vocalists. Otep is my favorite. In This Moment is very good as well though. There are others, those are the two that most know of or hear me listening to though.
Just because I listen primarily to or have a preference of metal, does not mean I won't listen to anything else. I am more than willing to listen to anything. I just need music in general playing. I understand most people may not like my specific music though. So I don't mind listening to theirs.

Food-I'm a pretty simple guy. I like rare cheseburgers with lots of toppings and eggs.
I cook well enough, and enjoy most food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My mind.
2. My ability to think and think for myself.
3. My ability to adapt.
4. My ability to learn things efficiently.
5. Another person to talk with. (I don't know how real hermit's do it.)
6. Something to occupy any free time I have... if I ever have much.

These answers are of course ignoring the obvious logical answers necessary for life sustainability. Food, shelter, water... stuff like that.
Now if the prompt line read "... things I'd prefer to never do without..."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My mind is perpetually going on about a list of things that I don't understand and would like to. Or they may be things I understand but don't like and I am trying to think of a pathway to eliminate or alter those things presence in my life. I think on those things often. Rotating between them. Always trying for something I hadn't thought of before. One day I'll succeed and I will have made my life only influenced by the things I decide it shall be.
Lately I had been thinking about organizing my life and concocting a path for me to be on with an end goal in mental sight. Now that I have that figured out I think about my hobbies more and about how to improve my life beyond monetary gains and placement physically.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I travel to Denver often for weekends now that I don't work them. Sometimes I leave midday Friday. Sometimes it is early Saturday morning. Depending which of my friends want to Go to the Magic tournaments that week. So if I am still in Fort Collins on Friday evening, I tend to go to FNM. Or stay home and paint, read, or play Hearthstone.
