I'm uncomfortable summarizing myself. So until I come up with something clever or amazing, let's just say this:
I grew up as a military kid, and a giant nerd (video games, role playing games, Star Wars, Star Trek: the works) and now I'm an actor pursuing an MFA before getting back to the real world to start a real career.
I don't tend to go out to bars fishing for women, so I'm trying this out instead.
When I'm not in school, I'll be working at a restaurant so I have enough cash to move to a big town after Savannah.
All that schooling and waiter-ing is aimed toward the goal of being a professional actor. I've been semi-professional for years, and now I'm getting my MFA from SCAD so I can really develop the skills needed to make a true living off of my craft.
Aside from that, I try to keep up with friends I made in school and other friends I've made in town. I'm a fan of drinking downtown and slurring my way through "Ain't No Sunshine" on karaoke night.
And, of course, I have that nerdy part of my brain that will always be with me. So I daydream a lot.
I may or may not have wandered through downtown Savannah on a couple different occasions while pretending that the passing pedestrians were all goblins, or zombies, or some other such fantastical nonsense.
I can tell you the page number for the list of Saving Throws in the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Player's Handbook by memory.
(I know, I know. Ladies, please get a hold of yourselves.)
I suppose I'm good at plenty of more real-world things as well. But I'm not so much the bragging sort which makes it hard for me to come up with this kind of stuff.
I find human motivations very interesting, so I'm pretty good at sorting through personal problems, or at least helping to understand them better. This sort of interest also spills over into my script analysis for a show or class.
I've got a decent singing voice.
I have double-jointed thumbs. I suppose that's something, right?
Hopefully, I'm a good actor. I've put a lot of eggs in that basket...
Um... I can fold my tongue into a clover-shape, or roll it like a wave.
... that's all I got.
I'm frequently told that I don't look my age. I guess I've got a youthful face.
Also, I think I sometimes come off as a bit more shy/awkward than I really am at first. I sometimes take a moment to "warm up". Half a moment if I've been drinking.
(... after looking at a couple profiles I realized that it's actually sort of interesting to know what other people are entertained by... so that's egg on my face.)
Right now my favorite movies are: In Bruges, Galaxy Quest, Shawn of the Dead, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, A Knights Tale, The Dark Knight, the new Star Trek movies, Gladiator, all the original Star Wars movies, and the first three Indiana Jones'
Books: The Song of Ice and Fire series, The Prydain Series, Harry Potter, Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, and Mythology by Edith Hamilton
Shows: (I don't really have TV, but I unabashedly abused my old roommate's Netflix) Firefly, Lost, Battlestar Gallactica, Breaking Bad, Star Trek TNG, Community, Glee, 30 Rock, Archer, A couple of different Anime, How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, Parks and Rec, Walking Dead, and of course... the Daily Show and the Colbert Report
Food: Pretty much anything that'll give you heartburn... hence why my dumb ass has to take an old man pill once a day (yeehaw!)... though, I'm trying to teach myself to eat better on a budget so I can slim up more for professional reasons (and let's be honest: for vanity too).
Music: It's hard for me to list what music I like because I love some parts of many genres and then simultaneously despise other facets of them.
I love a good modern rock song, but can't stand how bands full of white guys can't seem to stop whining about their parents or their girlfriends.
Oh and screaming. I hate screaming. Since when did that ever replace singing, even for a moment?
I like some country, but I'm put off by the strange brand of low-class elitism many of those songs fuel.
I like a lot of rap and hip-hop, but find a lot of it hard to identify with, so my sampling of this genre is a bit small.
I'm a fan of female vocalists. Of course, it's a little awkward sometimes since most female vocalists sing about how crappy their men have treated them.
Not that I'm the heart-breaker type, but it's hard to get into a song when it sounds like an ex has taken over the radio station just to hurt your feelings.
I love funny songs. There's no downside here. If a song makes me laugh I will fall in love with it.
All brand of fantasies. From slaying dragons, to being a superhero, to plugging my first big movie on the Daily Show.
Playing a video game... probably Elder Scrolls Online.
Going on a Netflix binge.
Slinging food at work.
Trying to squeeze in some exercise before I go out drinking.
I like to go out, but I'm not the type to party and hit the club every weekend.
I'm a big fan of quiet nights at home. I can enjoy them alone or with company. Though sometimes sitting at home and doing nothing also makes me antsy... So this was pretty much a non-statement.
Really, there's not much else I could have to hide.
... You're willing to meet up in person and skip the awkward, prolonged getting-to-know you emailing. I know it's a whole different beast for women, since some guys can be dangerously creepy, but I just don't think you can get to know someone well enough over email.
