My self-summary
I once sailed the seven seas as a notorious pirate, plundering all those who crossed my path. My treasure is buried on a desert island where no one will find it. I can read minds. When I visit museums, I'm allowed to touch the exhibits. I can clear tall buildings in a single bound. I once made a sculpture of a swan entirely out of molasses, then ate the whole thing in one sitting.

One of my ongoing goals is to keep my life as steady and as drama-free as possible, and that includes surrounding myself with calm, reliable friends. I have an amazing circle of friends, and hopefully you, too, have a life that is rich in friendship. You should know that while I can be shy in the beginning, I warm up quickly once I get to know you, and am a fierce friend to the end.

We are all works in progress, and I try to remember that every day. To that end, I love finding humor in as much as possible, and I admit to enjoying the well-placed sarcastic comment. Just nudge me if it gets too much (or kick me in the shins if I don’t get it).

DISCLAIMER: I am a total nerd. Video games, books, movies, TV shows, whatever... I'm totally ready to nerd out over it. I'm pretty much always working my way through some novel, too; currently I'm on a bit of a Discworld kick.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work in luxury retail. If you ever need to know anything at all about needlessly fancy pens or watches, I'm your guy. In addition to work, I'm also an finance major at George Mason University.

Slightly more long term, I would love to travel once I'm done with school. I get a bit envious when some of my friends tell me about the amazing places they have been. I've checked London and Paris off the list, but sadly I haven't been to a great many places around the world... yet. If I could find someone to travel the world with that would be amazing.
I’m really good at

General Tso's chicken
Anything with that rooster sauce on it
The six things I could never do without
The feeling of an unexpected cool breeze on a hot day
The smell of a new book, and the creak it makes when you open it for the first time
The thrill of hitting the first few notes after picking up a guitar
Digging into a delicious bowl of noodles after a long day
The companionship of my friends after a long week
And finally, the infinite knowledge of the Internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing the same thing I do every night, dear reader - trying to take over the world!

You are an independent, youthful, open-minded adventuress who lives in the DC metro area. Don't be shy! I've often been known to be reasonably nice, even to strangers.
