My self-summary
I'm a pretty quiet person, and I mostly keep to myself because I quite honestly just don't enjoy the company of most people. I suppose you could say that I'm picky about who I open up to, but I prefer to use the word selective. The problem with this is I've become so used to ignoring others that when I actually do want to talk to someone I'm not entirely sure how to go about it. So yes, I'm somewhat socially awkward. Even though I generally prefer to be alone I've come to realize that I'm actually lonely.

I enjoy reading, writing, martial arts, philosophy, history, movies, anime, and video games among other things. I love a good story, no matter the format. I really enjoy learning new things, but this can be selective. If something interests me I'll learn everything I can about it, nut if it doesn't then I can't be bothered. For instance math never held any interest for me so I never bothered to apply myself to it.

I'm a strong believer in living your life however you want as long as it doesn't interfere with anyone else living theirs the way they want. I'm not the kind of person who will refuse to admit that I'm wrong when confronted with a good argument. I make it a point to question myself, and think everyone should do the same now and then.

I have a strong wanderlust in me. I want to travel the world and experience and learn so many different things. I can't imagine wanting to stay in one place your whole life. Maybe because I've never really felt at home anywhere, but still it seems like something I just have to do.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to take over the world.

I've recently decided that at some point I'd like to walk across the country.

Attempting to be a writer.

I want to be Alan Moore when I grow up.
I’m really good at
Awkward silences.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually think I look angry.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of classics, although I'm starting to branch out into some more contemporary stuff. Some of my favorite books include, The Count of Monte Cristo, Musashi, Siddhartha, Dune, Don Quixote, Dracula, etc... I also like Neil Gaiman and various sci-fi and fantasy books. I feel that the fantasy genre is generally disappointing though. In a genre where anything is possible, it seems that most people tend to stick to the same old tropes.

When it comes to movies it's hard to narrow it down to just a few, though my favorite movie of all time is The Fountain. Darren Aronofsky is an amazing director. In general I like movies that make me think. I also tend to watch a lot of foreign films.

I'm kind of a snob when it comes to pizza. I'm originally from New Jersey and I've come to the conclusion that if you aren't from the Northeast then you don't know what real pizza is. I'm also a big fan of Japanese food.

I have a mild obsession with tea, particularly jasmine and chai.
Six things I could never do without
My imagination, a notebook, a pen, and a hot cup of tea. I know that's only four thing, but whatever.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Just about everything. Life, the world, history, nature, human nature, dreams, the unexplained, myself, story ideas that are always popping into my head. I think too much. I often find myself with multiple trains of thought going on at once.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing the same thing I do every night, Pinky...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I spent two weeks in a mental hospital for depression.
You should message me if
You can be the Morticia to my Gomez.

You have any interest in talking to me and think that I would enjoy talking to you.

You think you can crack my shell and are willing to try.

You can draw and would like to make a comic book with me. I've been wanting to do that for a long time but alas I lack the artistic talent. So it would be nice to collaborate with someone who provides the artwork while I provide the story.

If you want to fight a duel with me. No one ever wants to do that.

I'm new to Portland and hardly know anyone here, so it would be great to make some friends.
The two of us
