My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm kind of a weirdo. Perhaps I should start using the word eccentric.
I alternate between having a beard and not. I just shaved it off after keeping it for a year. It will likely return with the cold.
I prefer the English spelling of words.
I'm probably too immature for my own good. Not to be confused with irresponsible, mind you.
I have a tendency to play devil's advocate, but it's all in fun.
I exude my own brand of dry sarcasm, and I have a warped sense of humour that makes me pretty good at Cards Against Humanity.
I take pictures of any flowers that I do not know so I can ID them.

All in all, I'm a redneck with a bit of culture. I grew up on a farm then moved to Chicago. I do miss Chicago, but my current line of work has me out in the country again. My job has also made me a redneck in the most literal sense.

More to come later. Mayhap.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I hit the reset button about 2 years ago quitting my cushy gub'ment job and went back to school so that I could do something I'm passionate about. I got lots of criticism for it, but I'm happy with my do-over, even though I probably won't make lots o money in my field.
I work for an ecological restoration firm and I love it.
I just finished getting my master's degree in environmental management last May.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
karaoke, chainsaws, (prescribed) fire, plants, insects, birds, being a music snob
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smirk?
And the rest would depend on how obnoxious I'm feeling at the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Reading... I pretty much read field guides and scientific papers. Kinda boring, I know. I just got a book called Plants of the Chicago Region and geeked out about it something major.
Last book I read: Brief History in Time by Stephen Hawking. I occasionally read passages from Marcus Arelius' Meditations.
Last fiction: Porno by Irving Welsh
Favorite author: Edgar Allen Poe

Movies... As I've gotten older it seems like the dumber the better. Jason X is one of the greatest comedies ever. And I like big, loud eighties-style action movies. Like Robocop. It's been especially nice lately since they've made a comeback.
I don't watch TV. I do watch some internet shows though.

Music... I have over 1400 cds. I'm sure I have something you like and something you don't. There's death metal, rap, punk, grunge, industrial, classical, movie soundtracks, new wave, goth, pop, and more in there. The genre I'm the lightest on is country.
Favorite artists include The Cure, NIN, The Replacements, Alice In Chains, & Nobuo Uematsu

Food... Sushi, Peruvian, Mexican, Italian, Kuma's, and more
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Ipod
The Internets
A pocketknife
Friends & Family to terrorize
Mint - esp Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum virginianum) or Altoids
A good laugh
Honourable mentions to my cats, and my black beauty Les Paul
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-How can an object can have a spin of 2? Damn you Stephen Hawking.
-Resource conservation
-Plants: their flowers & their ecosystems
-How much better R. Kelly's music gets when he embraces his inner scumbag. Same with Kanye. Please get crazier and more indulgent! Then let's see that R. Kelly/Kanye crossover at the height of its debauchery!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, homework or watching my internet shows.

When I can, I like to do the karaoke.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Isn't admitting something here by definition not private?

So much for the non-answer, how about some of my musical guilty pleasures: Lisa Loeb, Sarah McLaughlin, C&C Music Factory, and Lionel Richie to name a few.

Some character flaws I'm willing to admit:
I'm messy.
I'm a lousy cook. EDIT: I can cook chili and some soups now.
I can get impatient, yet,
I have a tendency to procrastinate.
I can be at times rather oblivious.

I'm working on these though.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like karaoke, snowboarding, hiking, nature, or if you like music WAAAAAY too much. Must be able to handle teasing; it's the preferred way to show affection between me and my family and friends.
Also if you miss the triceratops.
