I think it's high time for an update to my self summery. I had a
little testimonial section in lieu of any legitimate information
but some of the quotes were outdated (and some were disturbingly
accurate despite being several years old) and in any case it was
really only chuckle worthy to me. So, now I'll actually put some
real thought into this and hopefully it makes sense (to the author
as well as the audience).
I am, like most, just a human navigating this crazy and intriguing
world. I'm looking to meet interesting people and I'm constantly
seeking new experiences. I enjoy the run of the mill guy things
like sports, beer, and metal music. But I also like cartoons,
kittens, reading, and cooking. Sometimes I'll pick up a hobby for
awhile just to see if I like it or if I am even any good at
I'd really like to meet somebody who makes me think and introduces
me to new ideas and perspectives. Our diversity is what make us all
interesting and I could spend hours with somebody who has had a
completely different set of circumstances than I have, just
discussing and learning about them. I feel this helps us both grow
as people and is one of life's greatest pleasures.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm educated and employed in a rewarding (if irritating)
I've recently started taking dancing lessons and I'm looking
forward to actually attempting to do it in a social setting.
I’m really good at
Math, fixing things, and cooking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll read anything. My favorite authors include Terry Pratchett, A.
Lee Martinez, Isaac Asimov, and recently Brandon Sanderson.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to better myself, how to be an agent of social change, how to
be a positive influence on those around me, and also how difficult
all three of those things are.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I absolutely love kittens, puppies, bunnies, and just about any
other tiny and fuzzy mammal. I also like duckies. It's not very
manly to admit it, but they make me smile. When I see them I
sometimes even make a little noise that can only be described as
You should message me if
-You have a fascinating story to tell or an exceptionally
-You'd like to discuss a book you've recently read but nobody you
know seems to care.
-You like Mystery Science Theater 3000.
-You'd like to start a series of interesting conversations on
broad range of topics that in time may or may not lead up to
coffee, drinks, or dinner at a restaurant you've never been to but
have always wanted to check out (this last entry is probably
implied but I wanted to round out my bullet points).
