My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a would-be writer, an amateur illustrator, a former professional video editor/videographer, and a novice graphic artist. I was born in the West Texas steppes, and I’ve haunted the endless plains of the Llano Estacado ever since. I adore desert climates.

I travel occasionally, when time and funds are available, usually going to places nearby. I am proudly Texan. I'm very nerdy, slightly geeky, an incurable Trekkie, and I possess a few mildly Gothic tendencies. I wear mostly black.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At present, work and school. I returned to college after a career-related absence of eight years... and going back certainly hasn't been easy, but (when I can keep up with homework and keep off of academic probation) it has been greatly rewarding. I hope to attain a Bachelor's (and then a Master's) in English Literature, which I can then use to start teaching or a career in journalism.

I spend my spare time (whatever spare time I have) writing, hoping to piece together a script or a novel that will allow me to work for myself instead of working for a corporation or ministry owned by someone else. I'm still working on this goal.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I write rather well, for someone who has never been published. I've written nine news and opinion articles for a Star Trek fan site before, so I take that as evidence that I can indeed set pen to paper in a manner that some may find enjoyable to read.

Other things I do well are: drawing (recently took up the hobby again after a three year hiatus); video editing (I used to be paid to do it); research; acting; singing (if I can find something in my extremely narrow vocal range worth singing along to); breaking my computer (again) by trying to "improve" it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"...Why is he wearing all black in a West Texas summer?"

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Over the years, I have learned how to live without many things I once believed I could never do without. Computers? Love them, but I can do without (though it may feel like tearing off a limb). Cell phone? Handy little gadget that I feel utterly married to at times, but I can do without. Ultimately, all things are fleeting.

What I absolutely cannot live without are friends. To quote Aristotle, "For without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods".

However, since six things were asked for...
• my faith
• friends/family
• Moleskine notepad
• assorted pens/pencils
• $100 cash left from last paycheck
• a towel ("Don't forget to bring a towel!")
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything from philosophy and religion to the nature of the universe and my purpose in it (if I truly have a purpose, that is). I'm always thinking. That's the best activity one can do. It's also the worst activity one can do, for many reasons.

Politics often enter my thoughts more than I would like. Given the current political climate of the nation, I expect I'll be thinking about politics even more as years pass.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching films, writing, reading a good book at home, washing a good film or television series, or getting lost in an all-night Wikipedia binge. On occasion: visiting my sister at the bar she manages, drinking with friends at the Blue Door in Midland, stepping out to the Monahans Sand Hills, heading to Big Bend State Park with the UTPB Geology students (even though I'm no longer in that course), or making yet another ill-planned for pilgrimage to Marfa or the McDonald Observatory in Fort Davis. It depends on the Friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been fighting deep depression and anxiety for well over a decade now. At times, it feels like a losing battle.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Bored? Geeky? Want someone to chat with? Care to debate the necessity or success/failure ratio of continuity "reboots" in film franchises or the pros and cons of introducing a war into the story arc of a long-running series? Want to chat politics? Religion? Philosophy? Roleplaying games? Got any good books you'd like to recommend? Bitch about Stephen Moffat? I'm really up for anything.

If you are, too, then message me.
