My self-summary
Well, I'm a guy, and I'm filling out a self-summary. I'm smart with a number of things, though it's always funny to see that there are a lot of things I just don't get! What a strange life!

I sit around computers for the 40-hour workweek, and am finding myself increasingly busy (in a good way) after work and on the weekend. Martial arts has been fun over the years, and I really appreciate the freedom of movement. Actually, I really appreciate a lot of things. I'll often observe something (physical or an idea) and think, "Hm, that's interesting."

I'd like to think I know myself pretty well too... it's important for people to know themselves.

I'm not very opinionated on most issues. As long as people treat each other well and take care of each other, most things will work themselves out. I don't like the idea of people being really opinionated, but not having a strong basis for those opinions. It's fine for people to be religious, but to say that "this is the way to fix the economy" or somesuch seems silly to me. There are very few people in the country who I'd entrust our economic policies to, and odds are, I don't know any of them.

There's Reddit, and I check /b/ every now and again. I took a few years of Computer Engineering at school, then dropped it for English. Damn Operating Systems.

Oh, and to be honest, I haven't really found sitcoms to be very funny lately. I don't watch much TV at all, but I've seen a few episodes of The Office and Community... and didn't really find myself laughing. Am I missing something? I like Steve Carell (though it's now Will Farrell) and Donald Glover (Derrick Comedy!), but I just didn't really get into the shows. I enjoyed Friends back in the day, and love the memorable parts of the Simpsons. When I was younger, I definitely put time into The Fresh Prince, Family Matters, and Seinfeld. Have times changed?
What I’m doing with my life
Professional job. Future rock star. Nix that, I just quit my job to go teach English in Japan.

My life is fueled by a fear of regret, so I've gotta make sure that I do everything I need to do to prevent that regret from ever settling in.
I’m really good at
Typing, grammar, thinking. This is a tough one to answer. Those are kinda throwaway answers. I love to sing, and have gone from completely sucking (six years ago) to being decent. You know, voice lessons and all that.

The first things people usually notice about me
My face. People don't forget my face easily, since it's unique, I guess. My arms, too. People actually pay attention to this shit? Well, I guess I'm fortunate, so I won't complain.

I'm really nice to strangers, so people usually peg me as a nice guy. Of course, that also means they often think I'm a bit of a pushover (well I do let a good number of things slide). I have no sense of (spatial) direction. I'm not very confrontational, but I know how to stand up for some things.

Oh, and that I'm a pretty good teacher. Empathy can go a long way!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Haruki Murakami, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Lolita.

Movies: The Shawshank Redemption, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Conversations with Other Women, Juno, Boondock Saints, etc.

Music: Iceman, Luna Sea, Camino, The Cat Empire, Fairy Fore, Binary Star, Jurassic 5, Miyavi, Duel Jewel, 90s/Early 2000s rock, Coheed and Cambria, Panic Ch*, Scarecrow, Cake, Janne Da Arc, Lightheaded, Panic! At the Disco (first album).

Food: Most things that aren't mayonnaise or mayonnaise-like. I do eat Chipotle about five days a week. Don't worry, it's like 350 calories, and an unacceptable amount of sodium.
Six things I could never do without
Music! ...even though I listen to the same songs over and over again.

....and five other things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Myself. Hah! Not to sound self-centered, but I think everyone has a "common denominator" of sorts, so by studying myself as a person, I can learn a lot about others.

Singing. It may sound strange to think about singing, but overthinking seems to be my approach to a lot of activities. :P
On a typical Friday night I am
Cursing my tessitura, learning to be more comfortable upside down. ...then I sprained my ankle. I'd like to go back and work on this, though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a pretty open person. If you ask (and you're not a psychopath), I'd probably tell you. At the same time, I'm a bit of a private person. I like to try to be modest about a number of things. I guess it's strange.

I got raspberry preserves on my nose a minute ago. I was making a sandwich. Don't tell anyone. :)
You should message me if
You want to chat or whatever!
