My self-summary
My heroes are Forrest Gump and Lenny from Of Mice and Men.

Kinda on the spot here. A bit weird, I'm sure you felt that way filling out your "self-summary..." I'll do my best.

I'm 27 years old, looking for a serious relationship, friends and penpals. I've been told that I have a good sense of humor (albeit dark at times), and that I write well. I write for a living, and for fun. I've also been called an eccentric ... but I believe they meant it in a good way.

I'm looking for a wholesome girl who knows what she wants in life.

So I work for a public relations firm, and do creative writing on the side. Reading is very nice as well ... important.

I like to write poetry, fiction, non-fiction, current events, military analysis. I actually have a poetry manuscript I would like to have published. The poems themselves tend to be rather weird, dark ... I use an experimental style that mixes free-flow verse with light prose.

I'm studying at USF Sarasota-Manatee for essentially a double major in International Relations and History. What am I going to do with it? Perhaps work in the intelligence field, department of defense, teach ... I don't know.

But I would like to be a professor, and teach about these things. A lot of schooling would be required though.

I'm a Catholic-Christian, and I take it very seriously. I'm currently trying to find a local group of Christians in their 20s to associate with, as I need to be more sociable.

I used to party quite a bit when I was younger, but I don't anymore. I don't like bars, don't like clubs. I have a small circle of close friends.

Recently I've become the designated driver for some friends of mine, so it provides a good opportunity for social interaction.

Another thing, I've had an account here before, and it's my belief that at least half (being generous here) of the women on here are looking for an ego-boost, not a substantive relationship.

Along that same vein, when I message you, what am I supposed to say? It's absurd. Think about it. "Hi, what's up?" That doesn't work. Am I supposed to scour your profile and take notes? It's awkward. This set-up is awkward - it's all text. No body language, no voice inflection, etc.

So please give me a break on the initial message. Frequently I just ramble anyway.

I know I'm rather strange, and anyone who'd want to talk with me or get to know me would also need to be on the strange side. That's how it's always been.

Also, if I message you and you live 5,000 miles away, it's because I'm curious about you, your part of the world, and how you view the world, given your different culture and worldview.

I like staying up all night and feeling mildly sleep-deprived the next day, then laying down in the mid-morning to sleep through the sunshine's adoring, miserable rays.
What I’m doing with my life
My main focus is discerning what God wants me to do with my life...because I obviously don't know. I don't think many people do, I think most of us stumble along until we die.

I have ideas for what I'd like to do. I've gotta do something. Good grief.

I'm striving to grow closer to the Lord, to deepen our relationship. I tend to look at things beyond life - the Celestial. the Eternal. I try, with God's help, to not get too bogged down by this place, this world.

So an interesting paradox exists, as will be seen below...
I’m really good at
I have a very intense interest in foreign policy, international relations, and America's strategic footing in the world as it pertains to the geo-political-military spectrum. This all ties in with history as well, especially military history.

I follow current events very closely.

I don't know why, but I'm fascinated by these types of things. I see the world as a chess board and, being an American and quite familiar with our military capabilities, I want to see us win. Win at what? Who said the world is a stage? Some English guy. Win the grand performance of this world amid the whirling chaos of myriad actors (nation-states). Ultimately, it doesn't matter, but still I'm fascinated. I want to see how long we can maintain our empire.

But seeing war as a game of chess isn't exactly healthy. War is ugly, mean, evil, brutal. When I see war on the news, I can get teary-eyed. Especially when innocent people, like kids, have been hurt. I tend to be very sensitive when confronted with the reality of war.

But the sounds! I love the sounds of war - the chaos, the concussive booms. Again, I don't know why. It's wired in my brain.

But from a conceptual point of view, in the abstract, looking at the chess board (which is, to a large extent, how any general or policy-maker has to view war, otherwise they couldn't bring themselves to order the humans they control into what they feel needs to be done), looking at the chess board I do pretty well. Ok, I'm rambling at this point. Actually, I've been up all night and feel a bit sleep-deprived, so this is probably the best time of any to be doing this.

I write - used to write long stories, novels? Then got into poetry, then started blogging about current events, now I'm writing about life. My life. It's so small, ha. It's not even a speck. Waiting to die, actually. Isn't that uplifting?
