My self-summary
Totally awesome, insatiably curious, and ridiculously silly... that's me!
What I’m doing with my life
This question makes me think about how vast and infinite the universe seems. And I mean the TRUE meaning of the word infinite. In the grand scheme of things, we are so tiny but we trod through life anyway.

In the here and now, I would tend to argue that it's not the destination that matters, but the journey. Pursue experiences. Seek happiness. Better yourself. And above all, keep moving.

In my personal realm, I've managed to become a software engineer with a bachelor's of science in computer science. That's a pretty good start :)
I’m really good at
-Pretending like I know what I'm doing when I have no clue
-Video games
-Logical thinking
-Consuming food
-Speaking the English language
-Driving stick
-Navigating the internet
-Buying shit I don't need (but that is REALLY cool!)

I'm pretty decent at:
-Playing the guitar
-Fire Spinning/Poi Spinning
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm smart. I'm silly. I'm slender. And the hair. Always the hair.

I'm also working on having people notice that I always walk on rose petals and have doves flying from behind me as a blinding light from the heavens guides my path. It's not working out so well though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm a fan of Harry Potter. The "His Dark Materials" series (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass) is probably my favorite trilogy ever. Maus, 1984, Slaughterhouse Five, Jurassic Park, and 2001: A Space Odyssey, among other things. Sometimes I read non-fiction like The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins or A Universe From Nothing by Lawrence Krauss to just switch it up and educate myself. At one point in time I tore through Ender's Game and then the Hunger Games series and then for good measure the Divergent series too. More recently I've read Red Rising and its sequel Golden Son, both of which were amazing. Oh, and Ready Player One, because why not?

Movies (Too many to mention, but here's a list anyway):
-The Lego Movie
-Back to the Future
-How To Train Your Dragon
-Star Wars
-Run Lola Run
-American Beauty
-Pulp Fiction
-Monty Python and the Holy Grail
-The Fifth Element
-Scott Pilgrim vs The World
-Pitch Perfect (assuming you've read this far, this is a guilty pleasure)
-Wreck-it Ralph

Shows (No particular order):
-Doctor Who
-Bojack Horseman
-The IT Crowd
-30 Rock
-House MD
-Star Trek
-Breaking Bad
-Colbert Report
-Daily Show

Music: Rock, Pop, EDM... whatever. It really depends on what I'm in the mood for and what gets stuck in my head that week. Goldfish is probably my favorite band right now. Their new single is amazing.

Food: Sushi or steak. I could eat sushi all day. And cow is yummy. I'm a full-bred carnivore. Given the choice between a salad and meat, I pretty much pick the meat every time... RAWR!

Drink: I guess I'm working on being a pompous asshole because I'm a fan of Scotch, cognac, red wine, port, and craft beers. I swear it's not on purpose!
Six things I could never do without
-My computer (it's kind of my livelihood, considering I use it for work)
-Sunglasses (The sun! It burns!)
-Good food
-Advil (I hate headaches)
-A good book

And just to switch things up, some things I COULD do without:
-Westboro Baptist Church
-People on their phones with their screens set to "brighter than the sun" during a movie
-Unicorns maybe? I've managed so far without one. Although it would be pretty epic to have a unicorn...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The opposite gender. Movie plots/cinematography. Work. Video games. Books. Just everything. My mind never stops, it seems.

Sometimes I get stuck thinking about quantum mechanics or astronomical theories. (Really? Light behaves as both a particle AND a wave? And what happens to Schrodinger's cat?!)

Other times, I'm stuck thinking about internet memes e.g., funny cat pictures.

How different the experience on this site must be for people of the opposite gender.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually not doing anything particularly special. Sometimes I'm out with friends. Failing that, I'm at my apartment playing video games or watching a movie. Or reading a book. Depends on my mood.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm the kind of person that will push unmarked buttons just to see what happens. This has resulted in panic alarms going off on more than one occasion.

My username has absolutely nothing to do with blazing it up. I just mashed two words together in a random and uninspired spurt because I really didn't think I'd keep this account. However, since I've started fire-spinning, it totally works.
You should message me if
If you want to talk to me, send a message. (It might be hard to see the connection, but you'll just have to trust me on this one)
Or if you want to challenge me to a duel, send a message.
If you require assistance on your quest for the Holy Grail, send a message.
And I guess if you can't stop hitting the "send message" button because you're twitching like a sugar junkie on a caffeine high, chances are you've already sent me 50 messages in the time it took you to read this sentence.

Proper grammar is encouraged :D
