My self-summary
I'm basically a huuuge nerd. My ideal day when I'm by myself is staying at home on my computer playing games, listening to music, checking up on the latest in news (tech and otherwise), and talking with my other nerdy friends. When hanging out with friends, I can enjoy pretty much any activity. I especially enjoy long tangenty conversations that start off the most random of subjects.

I'm very confrontation adverse, and usually try to see other people's points of view and circumstances before making judgements. I really value friendship and will do my best to always have your back and be there for you once we're friends and stay loyal. It's something I think this world needs more of.

I absolutely love animals, especially if they're cute. Cats, dogs, quokkas, lizards, elephants, whatever. I have image boards I browse occasionally dedicated to these things and I'll spam you with these pics and videos if you let me. I also have a cat. She's very cute and cuddly and suuuper vocal, but scared of other people and won't let most people pet her, and some people she won't even let see her. If you think you can win over my cat though, give it your best shot! I should note though that she can't handle other animals very well, so keep in mind that my cat absolutely has to go with me wherever I go, so it's important that she stays happy and is able to be around whoever or whatever lives where I go without having little kitty heart attacks.
What I’m doing with my life
My current job is working at ups which gets me a ton of exercise as I'm pushing around heavy boxes all day.

I have a computer science degree which I could use to get a job in the field, but lately I've been finding I like the stability and guaranteed future my job gives me (and the income is pretty good), versus the endless stair stepping job hopping and lack of security that working in the tech industry creates.

However I do work on my own programming projects in my free time, and I'm working on becoming an indie developer with some friends.
I’m really good at
I'm getting pretty good at fixing computers, due to my horrible luck with them breaking down.

Using google to get the answer to pretty much any question I've ever had. Which is how I got all my skills for the above.

Also I got hit by a car once and went flying, but I wasn't hurt, so sometimes my friends joke about me being immune to cars. I'm fairly certain I'm not though, and I'm not gonna do a scientific test to make sure.

I'm both really good at overthinking some things I shouldn't, and not thinking enough about things I should. It leads to a lot of amusement for other people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to be quiet when I'm first getting to know someone, but once I'm comfortable, I'm pretty easy-going and always trying to make people laugh. I especially love puns and will make them at every opportunity. If you respond to my pun with another pun, it's on!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Video games
My favorite games have some number of the following elements. Great story, interesting deep and consistent characterization, long epic challenging gameplay, lots of things to discover, unlock, and progression that lets me build up over time. There's something to be said for immersion too. Good music and visuals is also nice, but I don't currently have a computer that can really handle the pretty right now... working on fixing that. Especially for the upcoming VR revolution.

Love rpgs Baldur's gate and Ogre Battle. Great rpgs, each for different reasons. Great music, great story, great characters, great gameplay. And I love long games. I also love Skyrim, although my tendency to tangent is DANGEROUS with that game. I start like 50 quests, go to complete one, end up in another city, finish it and start like 50 more. Then go to complete another one, chase a giant down, then end up in a completely different city and... you get the idea.

I enjoy playing Heroes of the Storm. It's pretty addictive and much easier than league to pick up. I love watching pro league matches too though.

Books and mangas
The Belgariad and the sequel series The Malloreon by David Eddings are my absolute favorite. Also Xanth, Claymore, Pastel and more. Puns, action, romance, fantasy are all some of my favorite elements.

Show/Series I like
Supernatural, BBC Sherlock, Psych, Burn Notice, Sailor Moon, Boston Legal, Xena are all shows I really like, and not coincidentally all have heavy elements of bromance and/or friendship. Sword Art Online and Babylon 5 get special mentions.

Other shows I like include Log Horizon, Full Metal Alchemist, Kimagure Orange Road, Arrow, Justice League Unlimited, Pretty much anything to do with superheros really.

Foodwise, all my friends will tell you that I love burgers. If I ever go vegetarian, Carl's Junior will probably go out of business.

I like practically everything, but recently fallen in love with Lindsey Stirling's music. So sad I missed her recent concert in Portland. To mention a few other bands/artists I enjoy in absolutely no particular order, Nightwish, Within Temptation, Weird Al, Epic Rap Battles, Pat Benetar, Delain, music from Silent Hill, That one freaking song from Frozen...

Board Games
My brother seriously owns a bajillion board games so whenever we end up playing, it's never boring. A lot of nerdy board games too... some of my favorites are Battlestar Galactica, Sentinels of the Multiverse, and Red Dragon Inn. If you watch Tabletop from Geek and Sundry you have a pretty good idea of what kinds of games I'm talking about. If you don't watch it you really should check it out!
Six things I could never do without
The freedom and doors my car has opened are extremely important to me as well. If gas wasn't so expensive, I'd probably go out driving just for fun.

Even though I'm an introvert and need my alone time, I also love to socialize, and I'm usually hanging out with my friends 2-3 times a week.

My computer and an internet connection are super important because I need them for work and fun.

I need something to occupy my mind with. I get rather bored if I don't have a problem to solve, and it's one of the reasons I love programming, because there's -always- something to think about.

Good food is probably the last one (although it helps I'm hungry at the time of writing this). Between my lack of money and love of food, I'm very slowly starting to learn to cook.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot of things. Sometimes I'm thinking about whatever my latest programming project is, sometimes I'm thinking about philosophical things like if free will can exist if time travel is possible, and sometimes I'm thinking about throwing giant foam balls over the moon (but that's usually when I'm dreaming).

Right now I'm thinking about myself thinking about what I usually think about, and it's starting to give me a headache. Moving on!
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. I work nightshift at UPS, so every friday night I'm at work.

But if the question was more meant to ask how do I spend my free time on the weekends, the answer is that I'm usually at my home on the computer. Or hanging out with friends, depending on which day it is (Saturday is TABLETOP GAME DAY!!). Also sometimes I randomly get bored and will go to a dance club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a bad memory. I get way too proud of myself whenever I successfully cook something... the first time I made eggs, ham, and bacon I took a picture and sent it to a friend. Also, I have a bad memory.
You should message me if
If playing games and watching movies on the couch sounds like a good time to you, and you'd like someone to do it with.

If you think you can charm my cat. Seriously, she doesn't like anyone except me, not even my roommates. She is the biggest scardy-cat ever. My best friend has tried, but she's also kitty bipolar. After years of trying to get her to warm up to him, she'll let him pet her sometimes for like 15 seconds and get really into it... then suddenly hiss at him to get away.

If you just want to make friends. I can always use new friends. On a similar vein if you wanna start off as friends and see if things develop from there. I actually prefer this way of doing things anyways.

If you know how many times a man must look up before he can see the sky.
