My self-summary
Hey there, my name is Paul. I try to live life, by embracing it, but not taking it too seriously. I try to always find the bright side of things, and you can always find me smiling or laughing about some stupid joke. The cornier it is, the harder I'll laugh, so I hope you like corn.

I'm a jack of all trades when it comes to finding things to do. I can be just at happy out at some party, involving copious amounts of alcohol, and debauchery, as having a quiet night in, working on some personal pet project, or vegging out in front of the TV. I'm always up for trying a new activity, and I have done things like rock climbing, swing dancing, hiking, LAN parties, overnight camping in the mountains, smoking hookah with friends, road tripping in California, jam sessions, concerts.

Lastly I'm a total nerd/geek about a lot of things. Especially when it comes to music, computers, cool engineering projects (One day I will make an LED infinity mirror, and it will be glorious), and pretty much anything. I always love a good discussion, about some random topic, and learning something new.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently just working as a Software Engineer, at a financial research company. That pretty much takes up most of my free time. When I do have free time, I generally break out the drums and guitar and jam out with some co workers.

When I'm not doing any of the above, I try to work on a variety of software/hardware projects. And when I'm not doing any of that it's video games or netflix, or reading.
I’m really good at
I've been told I'm a pretty good and dependable friend. Telling completely inappropriate jokes, at times when it is not totally inappropriate (I can do that much).

Also problem solving. I love trying to fix things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I try always to maintain a positive outlook in life, with jokes, and a sense of humor. I'm quick to laugh, and slow to anger, and fairly forgiving for the most part.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books : A Song of Ice and Fire, Wheel of Time, 1984, Brave New World, Kingkiller Chronicles, LotR, and many others. I absolutely love reading. I'm currently on a sci fi binge, and I'm working my way through Dune, and all of Asimov.

Music. I listen to almost anything. A little bit of everything from Jazz (Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich), Punk (Bouncing Souls, Blink 182) Metal (Iron Maiden, Opeth, Lamb of God), Prog (Dream Theater, Symphony X), Chill (Mezzamine, FC Kahuna), Hardcore (Modern Life is War, Comeback Kid), Post rock (Explosions in the sky, Russian Circles), and many others

Movies: I can generally make myself sit through almost anything. Yes even romantic comedies. I do prefer action, horror, sci fi, and comedies though. I'm pretty heavily hooked on Breaking Bad, Dr. Who, and Archer at the moment at the moment.
The six things I could never do without
Music
Friends
Family
Computers
Books
Learning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
While at work: "Why the fuck is this not working....Oh...I'm an idiot"

While at home:
"How cool would it be to make a santa clause decoration, with a motion tracking camera that stared cars down as they drove, screaming 'HOOOO HOOOO HOOOO'?"

(Don't worry I haven't made it...yet)

Then there's random thoughts.
- Like how complicated Color Theory is, and why there are so many different ways to represent a color.
-Magnets; How do they work?
-Magneto; Villain, or misunderstood hero;
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm either at a bar, concert, movie, making music, building crazy electronic contraptions, video games with friends, watching netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm 100% not a mad scientist. Yet.

On a serious note. I have a minor hearing impairment. So if I seem like I'm ignoring you...I might have just not heard you (which makes for a great excuse to ignore people)
You should message me if
If you have an answer to any of those things I think about.
Or if you just want to talk. That's ok with me as well.
