My self-summary
I am one of those hard to find genuinely nice people. I wish only the best for people, even if they wish me ill, and on the whole I wish people were just a bit nicer to one another. I've been told by many people recently that they are envious of the joy that I can gain from just about anything. I find the corniest jokes to be hilarious. My laugh is infectious; most people who hear me laughing can't really help themselves. My personality is best described as a mix between Fozzie Bear and Winnie the Pooh. :D
I am sweet, funny, and awesome
What I’m doing with my life
Fed up with the working world (mostly just the management), I've decided to quit my job making delicious tiny breads to return to school. I'm currently attending University of Phoenix and I'm going to be an awesome teacher in a few years. :D
I’m really good at
I could just write that I'm a jack of all trades, but that wouldn't even scratch the surface. I'm a great baker, I am quite the avid video game player, and I am rather fond of working with my hands. Other than that I am quite knowledgeable about many things that are absolutely trivial. I'm rather good at repairing small and large electronic devices so long as their parts aren't too small.

I was a twitch.tv streamer for about 6 months and that helped me get much better at dealing with strangers. I can get pretty nervous around newer people, but that just seemed to be a medium that I could learn to better handle meeting and not being afraid of new people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm one of those people with a very unique laugh, which also happens to be very loud (that tends to stand out a bit if someone really finds my funny bone.)

Also; for a while I have been rather overweight, but I have been working on that a good bit. Over the summer of 2015 I was able to lose about 60 pounds, and it has made me feel amazing! :D
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I honestly don't really read all that much recreationally. I do however make it a point to read my textbooks cover to cover during the first month or so if I'm taking a class. This is a bit of a dorky move, but it helps me far more that in hinders me.

As for movies, I love to watch a good comedy. I also enjoy either a very good or a very bad action movie. I tend to like rom-coms, but there are some that really drop the ball. Some of my favorite movies of all time include; Machete, Shoot 'em Up, The Whole Nine Yards, Shawn of the Dead, and Thank You for Smoking. Stranger than Fiction is at the top of my list, which is saying something, since I can almost never decide on my "absolute favorite" things. As a baker, I would love to have somebody bring me flours.

I don't usually go too far out of my way to listen to music, but when I do I like the mixed bag. Old school metal, orchestral music, techno, Cuban music, anything with an accordion (or a harpsichord), blues, jazz, songs that remind me how awesome harmonicas are, and I think that covers the basics.

Now on to food. I can cook anything, and love to cook everything. I often find myself browsing for new things to cook, but when it comes to actually deciding what to eat I have a harder time. I'm originally from Arizona, so I love eating out at traditional Mexican places. Mississippi doesn't really have any of those, but there are a few that come close. I also like Italian food, Greek food, any kinds of well prepared meat. My homemade bread is to die for, I think I like it more than anybody else does. I find myself eating nothing but my bread for days at a time. Whoever said you can't live by bread alone was a big fat liar.
The six things I could never do without
My kitchen, my education, my car, the people I care about, a place to sleep, and... five is a better number than six anyway.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I would honestly like to answer this question, but I don't think I could accurately sum up the things that I think about from day to day. As a child I had ADHD, and you really never get over that, you just get better at filtering as much of it out as you can. My little noggin is always going somewhere and to this day I'm surprised at the places it takes me.
On a typical Friday night I am
I've spend most of my nights playing some kind of online game with my buddies. I have been playing lots of World of Tanks lately. :D
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have always been a hopeless romantic. When I was barely old enough to speak I would refuse to go to sleep until my mother would read "ani b'lee" to me (Annabel Lee.) Ever since then, it has kind of been my life's goal to find someone to "love with a love that is more than a love." There were a few times when I though I was close, but they didn't quite work out.
You should message me if
If you've read this far, it would probably be a good idea. I am a surprisingly interesting person who loves to exchange words with people. I am rubbish at small talk, but if you actually give me something to talk about I can talk for hours.
