My name is Dan. I'm a gaming nerd with a heavy RPG bias and a book worm. I'm also a reptile enthusiast. I will talk about snakes and lizard's forever. I enjoy silly jokes and complex conversation. I like to meet new people, and will talk to most anyone who is friendly about pretty much anything.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently graduated from ISU and I've got a job in Des Moines for now. I intend to find my way into a master's program for counseling psychology in the next year or so.
I’m really good at
Probably laziness, scaly animal trivia and stupid one-off facts no one really has a reason for knowing (there are 3 different plural forms of "octopus" for example).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not too sure, actually. I'm friendly I guess?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh... books. I like plenty of books. Discworld books, classics like The Time Machine, Scifi like the Halo books, Lord of the Rings, and especially A Song of Ice and Fire. *note: I have not finished ASOIAF past the second book, and I will hunt down anyone who dares to spoil things*
I don't do rom-coms
I don't get the chance to watch a lot of tv anymore. I pretty much only tune in for the Daily Show and Doctor Who. I suppose I also watch Supernatural online when I can.
Alternative/ indie is how iTunes would define my music tastes. Things like Mumford & Sons, Of Monsters and Men, Cake, etc. Also love me some soundtrack. The Cloud Atlas OST is just wonderful.
I'll try almost anything once. I recently discovered a love of sushi, and anything fried is a guilty favorite.
The six things I could never do without
And also my adorable snake Maggie
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I don't have enough money to throw at Steam
On a typical Friday night I am
Chillin out, maxin, relaxin all cool. But seriously, its steam chat
and vidya most of the time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Remember that "I'll try any food once" bit? Yeah... bugs are
included in that. Tried it once, and the results were not ideal.
You should message me if
I welcome any serious endeavors at conversation. Talk to me about any common interests we have. Or any interests that you have and passionately believe I should also have.
