Sometimes I think I'm too smart for my own good.
(Chapter 2) I am a self-subscriber of the onion theory. That we all have layers, and some of us have so many that few ever see them all.
For your entertainment, I've nicknamed my layers:
The crème brûlée layer: I'm usually a warm, sweet (delicious) person, but not everyone gets through the barrier. Only those with personalities that I get along with can actually break through, the rest see a barrier.
The surfer dude layer: I'm probably the most laidback guy you will ever meet. Nah, seriously brah, I am. The only thing that stresses me out is people, plain and simple, brah.
The superman layer: Let's look at the etymology of the word "superman". Super is something great or amazing, which is exactly what I am. Man, not a boy but a fully-grown mature male, describes me to a T so far. Well, I am superman because I constantly do things that others can't. I like to let other people say, "there's no way you can do that" and then I do it. Also like superman (the comic book here), I'm a nice guy even though I'm superhuman.
The honesty layer: I find if you are way better than a lot of other people at something, you'll never have to lie. This rings true for me in many ways. I'm tall, so I don't have to lie about that. I work out, so I don't have to lie about being athletic. I have a great job that pays well, again don't have to lie about that. Hence, I don't see any reason to lie, especially to someone that I hope to care about someday.
(Chapter 3) I thought I'd conduct this in the style of an interview:
Interviewer: Hi Joe, tell me about yourself.
Me: Well, Dave. Can I call you, Dave?
Interviewer: My name's Matt.
Me: Well, Dave, I don't know how to put this but I'm kind of a big deal. People know me. (Kidding, hope you get the reference)
Dave(err...Matt): How so?
Me: What can I say? The fact that I am very intelligent or the fact that I've got the build of a football player but the manners of a southern gentlemen. I'm also laid-back, supportive, and let's be honest...I have my funny moments. This is not one of them, Dave.
Matt(better known as Dave): What do you look for in a woman?
Me: I prefer women who are laid-back and have a great sense of humor. There's nothing sexier than a woman who takes care of herself and can make you laugh. I stand corrected, if she can cook then she can be even sexier :P
Matt, the artist formerly known as Dave:What brought you on here then?
Me:Oh you know, it's difficult to meet people in the real world that you like and respect. And let's face it, how well can you really get to know someone out at a bar? With the music going woob woob woob, you can't really hear anyone for more than one sentence at a time. So I'm here woob woob woob. :D
I'm sorry Joe isn't here right now, can I take a message?
Bon jour, hola, gutentag, ni hao, lei ho, apa kabar. Been to a lot of places, picked up a lot of ways to say hello. Hello.
I've been called charming before, but I don't believe that. Instead I'd call myself selectively charismatic. I've been called intelligent, but I find intelligence in everyone. I've been called "a big dude", but I just call that genetics. I'd call you, but I don't have your number :P Ok ok, cheesy line, but at least I came up with it myself.
Anyway, I should probably tell you that I am kind of a nerd/geek. Only on the inside though and that's why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. I could debate sci-fi and fantasy with you and yet know all the rules to football, basketball, and baseball. (Just a warning, I don't follow those sports though. I just played them in high school.)
I'm also the type of guy that would do anything for his friends, including driving them to the airport at 4 am. (Though please don't abuse that privilege)
Sometimes a gentleman, sometimes not (I think a true gentleman would respond to every message they get. Hence, I sadly cannot claim to be a true gentlemen.)
Texan: Born and raised, proud of it
Georgia Tech: Helluva Engineer
And remember kids, behind every great man there's a great woman. True story.
