My self-summary
The main reason I'm on this site is to make friends. If something better happens, so be it.

I've been on and off this site for years. For the most part the people I've met have been cooler and smarter than I'd ever run into at a bar.

That said:
- I would rather meet up for board games than beers.
- I prefer bookstores to malls.
- I would rather build/repair things than buy them.
- INTJ last time I checked. Means I'm a basket-full of curiosity.
What I’m doing with my life
Saving up for a house...not being sure that I really want a house.

Learning to fix my car a bit at a time.

Having a career, but kinda wishing I had gone to grad school instead.

Trying to sneak self improvement and creativity in after a 40 hour work week.
I’m really good at
Turning imagined things into reality using hard work. Snow castles, pillow forts, and such.

Puns. Inappropriate humor. Puns featuring inappropriate humor.

Group discussions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Classics. I'm also in a sci-fi bookclub that I should probably show up for more often. If this is something you really care about, I'll send you a link to my goodreads profile.

Movies: Comic book movies and Criterion Collection films. I especially like it when there's a midnight showing of a cult film. Horror sometimes. I like it when things are intense.

Shows: Twin Peaks, Luke Cage, You're the Worst, Westworld, etc. I also love sketch comedy.

BONUS CATEGORY: Board-games: Catan, Cards Against Humanity, Forbidden Island, Zombies!, etc.

Music: Sleep, At the Drive-in, Belle & Sebastian, Broken Social Scene, Elvis Costello, The Arcade Fire, Smog, Sam Cooke, Dinosaur Jr, Opeth, Ella Fitzgerald, The Cure, Jawbreaker, Four Tet, Destroyer, and David Goddamn Bowie. I'll listen to most anything though.

Food: I like all sorts of things, especially street cart food. I'm most unhappy when eating food from a mall food court.
Six things I could never do without
I can't think of things that I would be unable to survive without, other than food. Though life is a lot harder without good friends, good food, a song in your head, a memory in your heart, sunsets, and the occasional smile from a stranger.

Eh, that sounds sappy. The correct answer must have been death metal and hot sauce. Also, I love my mattress because it affords me a better quality of life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Making stuff. Going on adventures.

I'm sure my friends would give a more exhaustive list of odds and ends that I think about, but it's really just realizing how little I know about something, and then trying to learn about it.

Not sports. Not that I don't respect the amount of time and emotional energy that people put into being fans.

How weird today's idea of masculinity is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Slowly decompressing. I like to hang out with people on the weekend and I don't like to bring work emotions to the table.

+ Probably watching Netflix like everyone else on this site.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I seem to be getting more superficial in my 30s. If people don't read my profile, I ignore them.

My spirit animal is a sloth wearing ray-bans. I like to think that his name is Cooper and he's into speed dating.

Also, I have a secret love of the search-by-enemy-percentage on this site. I'm always curious as to who software thinks I'm diametrically opposed to.

Spoiler alert: they all hate recycling.
You should message me if
Why not?

You want an adventure buddy.

You like to laugh.

You'd like to talk to a good listener.

Modern culture and technology hasn't reduced your ability to communicate into a horrific splatter of emojis, quotes, and memes.
The two of us
