My self-summary
Whooo Hoooo back on OKC full time so excited. OK not really but such is life.
Genuinely nice, funny, intelligent, laugh easily and often mostly at myself, kind of spacey at times, but when focused I have moments of pure genius, OK I lied about the genius part, actually every now and then I have an interesting thought, which I don't hesitate to share with anyone at anytime.

Very recently had some health issues that make me want to live my life with more zest and appreciation of lifes twists and turns.
What I’m doing with my life
I really enjoy learning, like to experience new things and meet new people, read a lot to learn about people and places I may never have the chance to experience. I work and live in the city now and grew up in the near west suburbs. I do want to find my niche. I know what I do well but making that work on a professionally satisfying level has been challenging. However, I have been willing to take chances.
I’m really good at
Better at some things than I thought I was and way worse in others. I tend to be very literal even when I know people are joking around. Can be quite funny and quite quick witted so it is a strange combination. Very straight faced when joking around, I even confuse myself. When I was young I could throw a baseball very hard and run pretty fast, like who cares but if I met you I would tell you stuff like that. Now I am skilled at funny Facebook comments.
The first things people usually notice about me
The rare times I walk backwards, it's my butt. Otherwise probably height, smile, my laugh. Going into Subway one day for lunch and the manager, wanted to know what was wrong since I wasn't laughing and joking, I think on second glance that is what people notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Right now, music, checked from the library, yes the library. Jenny Lewis, Spoon and Mazzy Starr.
Books - Recently - Haruki Murakami and that Thomas Pikkety book about income inequality. Whole bunch of books that Ed at Unabridged Books recommends, got me out of my comfort zone and read some books that were a little odder or darker than I would normally read.
Like Archer and Bojack Horseman.
Dark Chocolate, Ice Cream addict, trying hard to slow my intake. Like food, open minded to most anything.
The six things I could never do without
Chapstick, books, water, learning that I can do without a lot of things that I thought I couldn't do without. I enjoy my sleep and I can't imagine living without music now that I put some thought into it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot about the state of the world, keep looking for my cause that will motivate me to spring into action and save the world. Why I am such a knucklehead sometimes. Why women waste time in their profiles saying they are not looking for a "hook up", knowing full well that it isn't going to stop any guy from contacting them and the chances they read it are like 1%. Please explain. No one explained yet. Are women not reading profiles either?
On a typical Friday night I am
Lets be honest here, I see a lot of the same people on here on weekends just like me, no crime in that, some people seem so exciting I wonder if they would even have time for me.
If I am in books, music, sports, movies and video games keep me busy. If I go out pretty much open to most things except very loud, crowded places actually like to be able to talk to the people I am with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Chapstick addict. Left pocket all the time. No sexual innuendo there just a honest real truth about myself. Love polar bears, that is not really private when I start wearing my polar bear suit in the winter.
You should message me if
You are interested in meeting a nice, reasonably intelligent person, who can be pretty funny and you have some chapstick. Probably my only real deal breakers are racists and zealots of any type. We don't have to have everything in common but at least the ability to learn a little bit about the others interests. Add to that empathy for others, when I read how some people answer some of the questions here, I wonder if they ever thought about anything from another's perspective.
