My self-summary
My name is Andrew and I'm a walking contradiction. I tend to seek out pleasure and avoid pain, though I'm not sure why. Sometimes I think that I know things, but then later I come to my senses. I have also been known to laugh at my own reflection. It seems as appropriate a response as any other, don't you think?
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a tutor at Sylvan Learning.
Pursuing a Master's in video game production at FIEA.
Enjoying my youth and staying healthy.
Seeing the world.
Realizing my potential.
Making it up as I go along.
I’m really good at
Being laid back, meeting new people, exploring new cities, sounding intelligent, diffusing tension, procrastinating, reading and writing, hiking and biking, debating, playing and designing video games, photo-bombing, swimming, listening and giving advice, playing with animals, drawing, teaching, etc.
The first things people usually notice about me
My booming voice and prominent brow?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Family and friends
Books, pen and paper
The internet
Electronic music
Greek food and pizza
Traveling and the outdoors
The sun, the sea, and warm weather
Yeah I know that's more than six, please don't tell.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The absurdity of it all. Haha. Boohoo.

How much longer until my next rave?

If we know that some degree of suffering is necessary for well-being (e.g. satisfaction requires effort, thrill requires risk, love requires fear of loss, meaning requires mortality, etc.) then where does that leave us in terms of "making the world a better place"?

Why is it socially acceptable to eat some animals and not others?

How can I justify my next leisure activity knowing that around 15 children have needlessly died in the time it took me to type this sentence?

Do I think too much? Or not enough?
On a typical Friday night I am
Either studying, relaxing, or partying -- hard.

How does one relax hard you ask? Stay tuned and find out...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me directly and I'll open up like a book.
You should message me if enjoy intellectual conversation and trying new things.

...are attracted to masculine men. want to stand out from the vast majority of females who refuse to initiate...
