My self-summary
I've had an account on here for four years (three of those years I was in relationships; I'm not just some weird foreveralone) so this profile is kind of overwhelming. Read it all at once, in chunks, or not at all. It's not like I'm going to have a test on it. You're still welcome to ask small-talk first date questions. I've considered reducing it for those of you in love with mystery, but ultimately left it because I'm not shy and honestly have nothing to hide. I am, to the truest extent of the dating cliché, probably the most open book you'll ever meet.

In a word: desenrascanço
In a verb: osmose
In a stereotype: geek
In a color: verdigris
In a smell: nag champa and petrichor

I'm going to pause right here where it says religion in that little box to the right (if you're using a mobile app, you'll just have to use your imagination...I'd recommend viewing this in a browser anyway, because the mobile apps strip out all of my links and formatting), and explain the unexplainable. I'm an Agno-Deist semi-Christian, with strong Buddhist and Taoist influences.
Quaere summus veritae de omni.
I am pretty straightedge, but not LDS. I don't judge you if you aren't, so I'd prefer if you don't judge me just because I am.
I'm always open to opinions, ideas, and intelligent debate, but I honestly don't care that much about your religion, or lack thereof. We'll get along splendidly as long as you don't step on my lack thereof. If these topics are important or enjoyable for you, I'll be more than happy to engage you, and I might even agree with you, or pick up something new. Just don't expect me to change for you.

I'm very free spirited, open minded, creative, and passionate.
I have an insatiable hunger for knowledge, and rather than focusing on any one talent, I collect them. I love to create. Anything that I can do with my hands; anything that challenges me to think outside of the box. Unconventional is my routine.

It seems that in the current pop culture generation, geekiness is actually trendy. I've noticed it's something most people capable of using the internet are set on using as a positive thing. That's awesome, power to the geeks. I really am one, though, both contemporary and traditional. People with an irrational fear of information absorption, high gamer scores, goofy laughing, or serious conversation probably won't like me.
If I can keep from boring you for more than an hour though, you're likely to discover an incredibly rich and multifaceted person who's a total sucker for romance. I like interacting with people and knowing that however small it may have been, some impact has been made on both our lives. My entire life is built on old-world fundamentals, with a modern twist.
I believe in firelight chivalry and dusky expression.
I love meeting new people and trying new things, but most of all I love the feeling of connection. That moment when the chemistry clicks, and for that brief little eternity, the world is okay again.

If I lived —or at least tried to live— my life by any one fundamental principle, it would be balance. Keeping all manipulable things in moderation and cooperation, and finding the most peaceful and efficient solutions to the things beyond my control. I'm not some saint, or role model of humanity. I fail more often than I'd like to admit, and sometimes I'm far too ambitious for my own good. The important part is that I always try to do my best, and in the end that's the best anyone can offer.
What I’m doing with my life
Blogging. Building/maintaining/upgrading my computers.
Looking for new employment, because my last job SUCKED.
Building the foundations of my future goals.
Trying to convince myself that I'm not awful at taking care of animals.
Trying to make new friends.
Trying to come to terms with what it actually means to be a grown up.
Going for bike rides, and walks, trying to figure out what to do with my life after totaling a Hyundai with my face.
Waking up on a hospital with amnesia and a liquid diet changes your outlook on life.
I have a renewed determination to make the best of it.
I’m really good at
"I have a sadness shield that keeps out all the sadness, and it’s big enough for all of us." —Max, Where The Wild Things Are

The first things people usually notice about me
People usually comment about my eyes, and in the process, my exceptionally well developed eyelashes.
Lately people have been commenting on my smile a lot? I think it's goofy, and I hate it, but apparently it's very charming. Who knew.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to read, and with the arrival of my kindle I've begun to consume inordinate amounts of literature. I casually read sci-fi, fantasy, thrillers, vampires, poetry, contemporary, historical fiction, and instructional non-fiction. I've read more Anne Rice, Orson Scott Card, and Douglas Adams than anything else, but I like plenty of others. Chuck Palahniuk, James Patterson, Paulo Coelho, Garth Nix, Neil Gaiman, J. K. Rowling, Cormac McCarthy, Darren Shan, Dan Brown, Dashiell Hammett, Robert Ludlum,Christopher Paolini, Stieg Larsson, Clive Barker, Hemingway, Dickens, Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), and Roald Dahl to name a few.
I recently came to the realization that it would be impractical —if not impossible— to read more than a few thousand books in my life. There are some that I love so much, I've opted to read them more than once, at the expense of another book I'll never read. I was then horrified by the idea that I wasted four priceless book opportunities by reading Twilight.
If you're interested I have an atrociously incomplete profile on goodreads.

I'm definitely a self proclaimed cinematic aficionado. If it's on film, I enjoy it. I like horror, psychological thrillers, independent/experimental, drama, children's animation, and romantic comedy. I particularly enjoy anything by Tim Burton, Guillermo del Toro, Hitchcock, Tarantino, Hayao Miyazaki, Joss Whedon, Christopher Nolan, or Jim Henson, and anything with zombies.
My top ten, in no particular order (and this is nearly impossible to actually nail down, so if it seems like something deserves to be on here remind me and it probably will be):
Nightmare Before Christmas
The Labyrinth
Where The Wild Things Are
The Matrix/Inception (yes, I count these as the same movie)
The Butterfly Effect
The Book of Eli
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World
Boondock Saints/Pulp Fiction(again, so similar I hate to choose just one)
Pan's Labyrinth
Honorable mentions go out to The Dark Crystal, My Neighbor Totoro, Mary & Max, Army of Darkness, The Birds, Some Like it Hot, North by Northwest, Short Circuit, Le Pacte des loups, Mirrormask, Stardust, Rubber, 28 days/weeks later, Interview With The Vampire, Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind,Big Fish, The Outsiders, The Professional (or pretty much anything with Jean Reno), The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, O Brother Where Art Thou, Nick & Norah's infinite playlist (Or really anything with Michael Cera...), Little Miss Sunshine, It's kind of a funny story, Brick, The Chumscrubber, Harry Brown, Unleashed, all of the Saw movies, and anything with Ellen Page or Tony Jaa.

I don't actually watch a whole lot of tv, so we'll keep this short and sweet: CSI, House, Heroes, Lost, White Collar, Burn Notice, Eureka, Doctor Who, Futurama, Walking Dead, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Big Bang Theory, Brothers & Sisters, Orange is The New Black, Game of Thrones, Adventure Time, The Twilight Zone (the B&W ones), and The Daily Show.

I'm going to go ahead and give this it's own section. No, I'm not crazy or obsessed. I just prefer to recognize them as a separate medium. I'd include comics, but I've never really gotten into the western-style; the only exceptions being the fantastic east-meets-west Canadian baby, Scott Pilgrim, and the American-made Korean-illustrated Last Airbender and Legend of Korra. I'm also not including Miyazaki, because I already inclusively named his work in the movie section.
Samurai Champloo, Ruroni Kenshin, Samurai X, Steamboy, Full Metal Alchemist, FMA:Brotherhood, Air Gear, Ghost in The Shell, GiTS:Stand Alone Complex; 2nd Gig; and Solid State Society, Naruto (I was young once...), Shippuden (call it a guilty pleasure?), Blood+, Angel Beats, Bleach, Wolf's Rain, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, FLCL
I'll also throw in Teen Titans, The Batman, and Justice League: Unlimited just for kicks.
This section is new to my profile, so it's short for now, but I'll be adding to it as I have time/remember more.


Current top 5:
Of Monsters and Men
Paper Kites
Iron & Wine

You also might occasionally find me listening to pop-ish, socio-politically charged, anthemic, offbeat or bohemian hip-hop/rap (Flobots,Fort Minor, Atmosphere), or bluesy/bluegrassy country (as long as it's not overly twangy, whiny, or cliche*)

If you're interested, almost every artist I've ever listened to is on my
You'll also find me using Pandora, 8Tracks, and HypeMachine.

I also like to think that I'm happily and actively cultivating a passion for culinary arts. I enjoy comfort food as much as the next person, but I have a great love of fresh produce and exotic ingredients. I'm always excited to try something new. I only follow recipes when baking, and otherwise only read them for inspiration.
I have a passionate, if coincidental, relationship with the flavors of my blood. I love anything Asian or Mexican. I like anything with potatoes, and enjoy European style chocolates and smoked meats. You're as likely to find me eating sushi or dim sum, papusa or anticuchos, as corned beef or kosher franks. I also tend to be reasonably intrigued by mediterranean and middle-eastern cuisine.
I like spicy curry, and make a killer baklava.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
String Theory.
The etymology of colloquialisms.
The world I live in, and how to make the best of it.
Where I want to be five, ten, or fifteen years from now, and who I want to be there with.
The 4th-8th dimensions, the difference between reality and perceived reality, macro-cosmic astrophysics and relativity —and their implications on my gnostic psyche.
Architecture, both functional and stylish.
Ethical politics, specifically the inconsistencies and vulgarities of human nature, and their effects on the society that I live in, and that someday my children will live in.
Science fiction weapons, and the technology that might create them. I have a profound appreciation for both craftsmanship, and superfluous exhibition of force: Fine jewelry, intricate carpentry, props, scale engineering, lasers, explosives, and hyper-velocity projectiles.

I crush hard on smart, artsy, alternative women, and actresses who can at least pretend to be smart, artsy, alternative, women. The Deschanel sisters. Amanda Palmer. Ellen Page. Olivia Wilde. Natalie Portman. Kari Byron. Emma Stone. Yeah.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with family and friends—whatever that happens to mean at the time—out to coffee, or a show at Muse or Velour. Lately I've made a habit of sushi with friends, followed by some sort of casual hijinks that may or may not be socially or legally acceptable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm mildly OCD about numbers. I prefer hundreds above all else, but I'll settle for smaller increments (50, 25, 10, 5, 2) depending on the situation. If at all possible I always prefer ending with a 0 or a 5 as the last digit.

I'm addicted to punctuation—namely commas, dashes, and semicolons—and abuse it as an excuse for my ADHD addled run-on sentences; case-in-point.

*As much as I hate country, I secretly really like Blake Shelton's Boys 'Round Here. Damn you catchy choruses; I'm a hungry-hungry hypocrite.

You should message me if
»you actually read the whole thing.
Or even if you didn't. tl;dr?
»You think finding coffee and a used book store to escape windy fall rain in a city you don't know, sounds like the best day ever.
»you're interested in making a real connection through passive aggressive angst. Or rainbows. Or Alphonse Elric. Or Batman.
»you're a word nerd and want to have a vocabulary competition.
»you have any idea what ":(){:|:&};:" does.

What are you still reading for? If you made it this far you should probably just message me already.
It usually makes my day to meet someone new, even if we only talk once or twice. Besides, the worst that can happen between us is nothing at all, so it only gets better from here.
