My self-summary
If you somehow found this profile. (I don't think it's even searchable, it's actually a staging area for various ideas for my actual profile, quasius.)

I'm awake but still conscious of my sleep. Trying to make sense of my dreams, I turn my bed-side prayerbook. I get up and then it's today- to waste or to use. Today seems a lot like every day.

My goal today is to solve problems. As an engineer, that's what I do. I want to create- so I design an elegant architecture, make a character, list his component parts, concept their mathematical representations, and pick one to implement first. I'll make him rotate- this will require a scratchpad, a calculator, and some trig. Today I solved some trig problems.

Work is done and I look for a connection- talking with my neighbor, cooking for friends, having a serious conversation, or just enjoying the community.

With luck, dreams tonight will be different.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm living but am still conscious of my mortality. Trying to make sense of my dreams, I turn to prayer. Today is a life- to waste or to use. Today is every day and each day is a piece of eternity.

My goal in this life is to solve problems. As an engineer, it's what I'm called to do. I solve some trig problems, combine the results, create characters, build an experience, share the experience, and reach out to touch the world. But I can't quite reach far enough...

My work is done, but I still look for the connection that I can't make on my own. Then I see God in my neighbor. Driven by love, I share my food. In a deep conversation with a friend, I touch the Divine- just enjoying the Community.

Only by infusing my work with God's love can I do anything. Even then, my simple life's offering is only a step toward God as He does the rest. As I make a character on the screen rotate to tell a story, God rotates the universe around me so I can be part of His story.

With love, dreams are different.
I’m really good at
Engineering, computers, computer programming, writing, thinking, talking, board games, video games, cooking, eating, making people laugh, and making lists.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never had the opportunity to make a first impression on myself, so I'll have to pretend...

“Have you seen that guy that was cooking the burgers at the Easter party before?”

“Yeah, he used to be real active in UCF Catholic Campus Ministries while in school. He's mostly in the young adults group now, but he still comes to some stuff and cooks for us sometimes.”

“So, you know him?”

“Yeah. He can seem a bit quiet at first, but is often just thinking. He's really open if you talk to him though. Pretty smart too. Seems to know a lot about random things.”

“Wait... was he that guy that had the same blue hoodie when we went to pray at the abortion clinic?”

“Heh, yeah. I think he always wears that blue hoodie in the winter. It's actually two that look similar though. I think he just doesn't like spending money on himself he doesn't need to, but he's pretty generous with others.”

“Cool. Maybe I'll see him around again.”
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
“I can't carry [the ring] for you, but I can carry you!” -J. R. R. Tolkien, Return of the King

Tolkien and Lewis were masterful because they understood what it meant to be born of God. Sam's loving bravery speaks directly to a true desire to give of ourselves and Aslan's roar echoes in my mind as the strength of Christ. When words are so true that they're never forgotten, fantasy becomes reality.

Art to reveals what lectures can't. When I see Harry Potter selflessly sacrifice himself to save others, it ignites my sense of virtue in a way no essay ever has. Over a decade later, Dead Poets Society still serves as a warning against judging people on what they can do instead of who they are.

I don't think it's an accident humans find music so compelling. When a rousing symphony inspires courage or an ethereal hymn lifts my mind to God, it's a glimpse of Heaven.

Art is powerful.
The six things I could never do without
1) Cell phone
I like being available to my friends whenever needed. Also, my sense of direction is awful and GPS is great.

2) Computer programming
Computers are modern magic that society has not yet managed to disprove. Through their manipulation, I'm able to give life to my thoughts and ideas in ways that would have been impossible even 20 years ago.

3) Games
My favorite part of games is sharing an experience with friends. All things in moderation, but a good game is one of my favorite leisure activities. I enjoy both analog and digital games. I also have a particular interest in game design and how games can be potentially be used to spread positive ideas and improve education.

4) Well-stocked kitchen
I almost never cook the same thing twice and am always excited to see where a new food idea will go. With a reasonable set of basic ingredients and tools, the combinations are uncountable.

5) Wikipedia
An embodiment of the “information age.” That people from all over the world would come together and organize known truth for free is amazing. And that I have the ability to instantly learn about nearly anything is equally amazing.

6) Love
In the end, everything else on this list will fade and only this will remain. The fundamental question at the end of my life is “how did I love?” How did I show a lifelong desire to do good to the people put into my life?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I've very recently spent a lot of time thinking about what it means to condense an entire human person into a few paragraphs and how to see real people in the texts I read.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not sure if I've ever had one of those. Who wants to be constrained by what you're “supposed to do” on some night of the week anyway?

You might find me hanging out with friends or at home working. You probably won't find me at nightclubs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
TOP SEKRET RECIPE FOR SUPER SERIOUS SAUSAGE/PEPPERS/ALFREDO/SINGAPORE NOODLE FUSION CASSEROLE DINNER OBJECT:

1 lb Andouille Sausage (This is secret Cajun sausage. So secret that Chrome spellchecker doesn't even know about it. But CajunGrocer.com has you covered. Get Savoie's. Oh, and pick up some boudin while you're at it. Ces't si bon! If you must, some form of smoked sausage can be substituted. But me, I'd geaux for the Cajun stuff.)
1 lb Sweet Corn (Loose kernel- cobs are forbidden.)
2 Sweet Bell Peppers (1 red and 1 green recommended for a proper stop-light color scheme.)
1 Sweet Onion (Man, these are some sweet ingredients!)
1 jar Alfredo Sauce (Pros use Classico. You could use lesser sauces like Ragu, but I'd be alfraid o' da results.)
0.85164 tsp Black Pepper (Ensure that your measuring instruments are properly calibrated.)
2 tsp Garlic (I'm not going to mince words- powder is no good.)
1 tsp Hot Sauce (Louisiana brand is good and conveniently available in not Louisiana. Tabasco is fine if you want to automatically add vinegar to everything you cook, but you probably don't want to automatically add vinegar to everything you cook.)

1 lb Rice Noodles (Angle hair would be divine, but other shapes should work too.)
2 tbsp Curry Powder (If you want to curry the favor of your dinner guests, I recommend looking for the fine yellow powdery stuff sold with "normal" spices, not one of many varieties of pre-mixed Indian / Thai curries you might find in the “ethnic” aisle.)
2 tsp Ginger (Ground or fresh from the ground.)
32 oz Chicken Borth (I couldn't think of anything funny to say, so I intentionally misspelled “broth” instead. Boxed/canned is fine.)
Soy Sauce (Low sodium- healthier and tastier)
1/3 cup Sherry wine (Sherry you keep some around? It sherrys its flavors well with many foods such as mushrooms, white fish, and chicken. Alright, I'll make it optional.)
2 tsp Sesame Oil (Another good non-perishable to have on hand. A little goes a long way toward giving a subtle Asian accent. Just make sure not to use too much or people might not be able to understand you anymore.)
1 tsp Chili Oil (Don't ever put this in a hot wok and forget about it- you'll mace the entire room. Interesting story there...)

1) Cut sausage into medallions and fry. Set sausage aside. Reserve grease. Reverse grease.
You shouldn't need any fat since the sausage has a skin condition and makes it's own grease. If needed, add a bit of water to prevent burning before it gets going.
2) Dice the onion and slice the bell peppers into strips using your katana. Sear the veggies in the sausage grease while adding the hot sauce.
(You want small brown/black “sear scars” on the veggies. This will give them a great flavor while leaving a lifelong reminder of their bland and shameful past. Not stirring for a bit can accomplish this. (Think Chili's sizzling fajitas. Now stop thinking of them- they're overpriced.))
Let the cooked veggies hang out with the set-aside sausage.
3) Sear corn in a similar way to onions and peppers until every kernel submits. Add more fat if needed (butter, olive oil, or a federal budget).
Corn is separate due to different cooking time and to avoid crowding the skillet. (Searing can be a very personal matter.)
4) Combine everything. Add in alfredo sauce. Sauce will darken and make a cool swirling vortex when mixed in. Set entire mixture aside.

5) Cook rice noodles in chicken broth until "al dente" (they will soften a bit more after drainage)
Feel free to add water, but try not to use more liquid than necessary to submerge the noodles so maximum broth gets soaked up.
6) Drain noodles. Toss with sesame oil to prevent formation of exclusive noodle cliques.
7) Toss noodles with curry powder (more), ground ginger (less), and chili oil (much less). Alright, confession time: I eyeball all my cooking, so the measurements given are actually just good guesses. So to protect myself from liability, I will now be intentionally vague,
The curry powder should color the noodles the rich yellow you've seen on some Chinese buffets. (But not a bright, shiny yellow. That's actually an indicator that the Chinese buffet is radioactive.)
The ginger should not produce a strong, distinct ginger flavor; but blend in with the curry. Don't be afraid to taste and be careful with that chili oil.
8) Add combination of sherry (more) and soy sauce (less) as needed to lubricate / dissolve seasonings.
Don't add more liquid than needed to spread the flavors. Again, the curry powder is the star here and can become very territorial if threatened.

9) Lay out noodles in your favorite casserole dish. Evenly poor sausage / peppers / sauce mix over the rich curry noodles. Do not toss- they don't really like mixing, unfortunately.
