I recently moved to a new town where the average age hovers somewhere around 47. As a result, the residents may or may not believe that I'm just a very opinionated embryonic ooze. Which I'm totally fine with (I apparently remind everyone of their son or grandson), but it's just not a super-ideal place to be as a single 25-year-old guy with invariably nerdy interests.
A dating profile seemed like a reasonable way to still meet other equally primordial people.
Using sophisticated and potentially made-up terminology to describe my hobbies in uncomfortably professional settings.
Friends've also said I'm a good listener, and I have a lot of fun trying to make e'erbody laugh.
Brave New World, Ender's Game, and Watchmen are some of my favorites. Harry Potter was a big part of my childhood. I'm currently on the fifth book of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, too.
Pan's Labyrinth, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, the Matrix, Fight Club, Gladiator, and a whole bunch of others.
Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Community, Parks and Recreation, New Girl, Arrested Development, Firefly, and The Daily Show, to name more than a few.
Red Hot Chili Peppers, Cage the Elephant, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, lots more super-original bands. Debussy, Uematsu, Chiptunes, and OC Remixes if you want to get weird.
I'm not hard to please when it comes to food, but I am a pretty big sucker for sweets.
3. Being a terrible cliché
4. My computer
5. The internet
6. Amazon Prime, seriously how did I use to buy things
And, y'know, basic sustenance or something. But a man has to have his priorities straight.
Creative side projects that I tell myself I'll do one day.
