Hello there, my name is Ryan. I find myself somewhat cerebral, yet
at the same time artistic and emotional. As a thinker, I tend to
daydream while I'm doing other tasks. My hobbies, goals,
aspirations, school, and work all come together like roots forming
the basis of a tree, carefully intertwined and impossible to
separate. I love to laugh and love (at least trying to) making
others laugh. I love the beauty of snowy winters and the comforting
silence that it brings over everything, as if time itself slows. I
try to stay optimistic in the face of almost certain failure. I can
be both tranquil and dynamic, brought on by those I care deeply
about. My family and friends mean a great deal to me, even if we
get in occasional arguments (I try really hard to avoid arguments.
I always hope that people can get along.) I tend to be a good
balance of scientific and intuitive about things in life. I love
the simple things, as they routinely are the most rewarding.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to enjoy life to the fullest. Happiness is what we have
while we're alive, so that should be everyone's primary goal in
life. I find that comes mostly through other people. Things may
interest us for a little while, but it's others who make life what
Interests: Nature. Cinematography. Travel. Hiking. Animals.
Photography. Programming. Web design. Photoshop. Electronics.
Cuddling. Kissing. Painting. Art. Science. Comedy. Friends. Family.
Love. Chat. Web development, Technology. Computer software.
Computer hardware. Hugging. Comforting. Sightseeing. Astronomy.
Psychology. Biology. Philosophy.
I’m really good at
I'm good with my interests and hobbies and things that I enjoy,
which makes sense. Comforting and counseling others (animals
included.) Crafting an area that feels homey. Having a great time
with family and friends. Writing software. Administrating a forum.
Working in Photoshop. Enjoying the arts.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to be somewhat shy with new people at first. This is
admittedly kind of a common trait among people. Once I get into a
discussion then I love to talk. My playful zaniness around those I
care deeply about. Perhaps you can tell me more?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm not much of a book reader (when I do it's usually
something technical), but I do a ton of reading online, which I
feel while not a replacement for what books offer, is still a great
way to learn.
Movies: I greatly enjoy culturally significant films, particularly
those of my favorite directors, such as Stanley Kubrick. Here is
just a small sampling as there are too many to list: 2001: A Space
Odyssey. Star Wars (original trilogy: original theatrical
releases). Moon. Amélie. Casino Royale. Close Encounters of The
Third Kind. Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And
Love The Bomb. Citizen Kane. The Silence of The Lambs. Fargo. No
Country For Old Men.
Shows: I'm not much of a TV watcher (I watch probably less than an
hour of TV a month, getting my media instead from the internet.)
What shows I do enjoy are what I feel are classics: The Joy of
Painting. Futurama. Tom and Jerry. Breaking Bad. Yes, I'm still
somewhat of a kid at heart.
Music: Too much to make a reasonable list from, so a small
sampling: Poets of The Fall. Depeche Mode. Owl City. Orbital. Pet
Shop Boys. The Smashing Pumpkins. Iris. MoozE. Front Line Assembly.
The Faint. Nine Inch Nails. Collective Soul. Coldplay. Boards of
Canada. KMFDM. Camouflage. Plus a lot more (I'm pretty flexible.)
Don't despair if you haven't heard of any of these, as many aren't
all that well-known.
Food: Often times, the simple things, and once again just a
sampling due to sheer numbers: Cheerios with bananas. Macaroni
& Cheese. Pizza. Salads loaded with cauliflower and broccoli.
Chili. Tacos. Wonton soup. Spaghetti. Strip steak cooked rare.
The six things I could never do without
My family. My friends. Love. Technology. Money for emergencies. A
functional mode of transportation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The meaning of life and the universe. Not so much what it is (I
feel I understand now what that is), but sharing what I feel is
helpful information that hopefully others can use to be happier.
The universe is such an amazing thing for so many reasons.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally doing what I do any other night, learning and enjoying
life. Friday doesn't hold a special significance for me. All days
are equal in my eyes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find baby animals the most adorable things in this world. (No
joke, you should see my YouTube playlist.)
You should message me if
You would like to! I would love to hear from you!
