My self-summary
Shy, yet eager-to-be social someone more than willing to break out of his current doldrums. A person who is not great with small talk, but will ask you too many questions until you ask him to stop. Someone, if you get through the awkward introductory social phase, will be a loyal friend that will always listen.

I feel a relationship with someone should be supportive from both sides - one person should never dominate a conversation and/or relationship. A great relationship has both sides appreciating and/or learning new things about each other.
What I’m doing with my life
Just hanging on tight! The next opportunity will come around soon enough, but for now I'm just living here. I grew up in the Midwest and while it isn't always the best place in the world, I secretly sort of love it. Sometimes you just tolerate snowstorms. (And endless days of below-zero temperatures. Perhaps that's a weird kind of love.)
I’m really good at
Listening. I'm really great at listening to others and offering advice. I really do enjoy random conversations about nothing!

My educational background is in English and print journalism, so I love to edit, find/research information and write. I like to write too much, in fact, that often I am often my worst editor! I am always open to editing my friends' research papers though!

I really do try to care and understand about what's going on in the world. This can lead to be some pretty heated opinions about things and I can be quite outspoken (and often wrong!) about many topics.
The first things people usually notice about me
My dry, oftentimes awkward way I look or react among people. The way I try to add non-sequiturs into random conversations.

Another thing someone might notice about me is my eyes, or how one of them always appears sleepy-eyed. Fixing my eyes is definitely something I want to look into for the future, because my eyes often make me look sleepy and bored in every photo!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
You could say I grew up on the Internet, but perhaps I was there a bit too long. I love computers, general tech and video games.

I also seem to be strange in that I am someone (down with stereotypes!) who follows sports as much as he follows nerdy passions. I am a huge Twins fan (see photo for further silly details) and hope they get better soon! My journalism background makes me, oddly enough, root less for teams and more for stories and trends. Actual sports drama (and not what ESPN conjures up) can be exhilarating!

I don't have a particular taste in movies or music, but I will talk your ear off about a great TV show or movie, but I can also switch 180 degrees and talk about silly nonsense you wouldn't have a clue about (or need to know about)!

Music? I'm pretty open to the unknown, though I stick to stuff I'm familiar with like old video game music and pop/rock music from my high school/college years. I really want to start listening to more and more indie pop/rock though. The current Top 40 radio landscape does nothing for me. Do you have something I might find interesting? Try me.
The six things I could never do without
My computer, music, podcasts, close friends and family, a comfortable bed and some time to reflect. I need that and you should as well!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...what to do next in my life. Ways to make myself be a much better person. I imagine I would think a lot less about these type of things if I were occupied with other activities.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working or trying to keep myself occupied. The bar scene can be hit and miss for me, but I'm not against going if I have a friend or two with me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very honest and open about my quirks, but I don't believe it is fair to reveal private matters to someone for whom you are just starting a serious conversation. It is best to discuss our respective issues later on, right?
