My self-summary
Hey, my name is Soren. I'm here looking for friends, maybe more. Rather than putting every single thing about myself on here, I'll leave that for actual conversation ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm in the health care industry. It's very rewarding, challenging, and a little hectic sometimes. But I love it, and will probably stay in this sector for a while.
I’m really good at
Weight lifting, playing the piano, PC games...various stuff ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
my height (not that tall, but...) and my biceps LOL!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
One of my favorite books is The Sickness Unto Death, by Kierkegaard. It inspired me to live out my life as who I am, and not to try to conform to what others think I ought to be. "Surrounded by hordes of men, absorbed in all sorts of secular matters, more and more shrewd about the ways of the world--such a person forgets himself, forgets his name divinely understood, does not dare to believe in himself, finds it too hazardous to be himself and far easier and safer to be like the others, to become a copy, a number, a mass man."

My second favorite book would have to be Barth's Epistle to the is SO poetic and epic in its theological yet philosophical. It just blew my mind and I am in awe every time I read a passage from it. "Dark, blind, uncritical, capricious, mankind becomes a thing in itself. Heartless, perceiving without observing and therefore empty, is our thought: thoughtless, observing without perceiving and therefore blind, is our heart. Fugitive is the soul in this world and soulless is the world, when men do not find themselves within the sphere of the knowledge of the unknown God..."

As for movies...too many to list! A sample: Kung Fu Hustle (comedy, foreign), Vanilla Sky (sci-fi, romance), IP man (foreign, martial arts), 300 (action), The Game (thriller, suspense)...Whale Rider (indie, drama), What Dreams May Come (drama)...

TV consists of The Walking Dead, Dexter, Chopped (food network stuff), Mythbusters, News programs, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad (my first tattoo is BB inspired), House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, American Horror Story (caught up to season 3)
The six things I could never do without
I'm thinking about changing my name. Give me suggestions. Right now I'm settling on Sorengaard, but would like to add something to that like Thor-hammer or some such crazy thing. Let me know what you think!

Humor, stillness, cats, wilderness, technology, architecture
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A quote from Barth's Epistle to the Romans: "Their sin is their guilt; their death is their destiny; their world is formless and tumultuous chaos, a chaos of the forces of nature and of the human soul; their life is illusion."
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually playing a PC game lol...I recently went out to a bar to play pool...had some fun there. But that's unusual. I'm flexible though, but I have gotten into the habit of having quiet Friday nights. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"Love is a desire so intense that it has already tasted its fulfillment, and therefore cannot be disturbed or extinguished. Love is a peace, so deep that it is at once the highest rest and the highest unrest. Love is an awaiting of redemption, so great that it need wait for no time or event. Not-knowing, it already apprehends...; and apprehending, it knows no longer the vanity of our existence. therefore the unobservable place where the consummation of all things has already been completed..." -Karl Barth

O, and I blast Bieber's "boyfriend" song to annoy people...ya that was me.
You should message me if
You should message me only if you don't feel like messaging me. Just say, "hey, why am I messaging you?".


Ask me for the rest of this passage if it strikes you:
"...One became great by expecting the possible, another by expecting the eternal; but he who expected the impossible became the greatest of all. Everyone shall be remembered, but everyone was great wholly in proportion to the magnitude of that with which he struggled. For he who struggled with the world became great by conquering the world, and he who struggled with himself became great by conquering himself, but he who struggled with God became the greatest of all. Thus did they struggle in the world, man against man, one against thousands, but he who struggled with God was the greatest of all. Thus did they struggle on earth: there was one who conquered everything by his power, and there was one who conquered God by his powerlessness..." -Kierkegaard
