I am a young man that that has just moved to Vancouver to pursue further education in the Classics in the not-too-distant future. I am a fan of the fantastic, and consider myself to be a good conversationalist and pretty decent guy, although I often get really bothered when people describe themselves with terms like "decent guy". They're very rarely decent in any way. I am generally a pretty happy person. I like philosophy and baking and generally having friends and being sociable. I'm quiet, well-read, and prone to laughter. I'm a little strange, but try to be honest about it, and everything I can. I have it on reliable authority that I am "a silly". I hope you have an excellent day!
I am completing my descent into literary madness this year. On top of completing NaNoWriMo last November, I am trying to do more or less the same thing every other month, to force myself to write and be all productive. Booyah.
Also that I'm pretty verbose. I'm prone to babble when I get excited about something, or if I'm talking and am nervous. I'll also do things like add qualifiers to my sentences, like verbal footnotes, especially if I realize that something I've said could possibly be misconstrued before someone has time to react but not before having said it.
Books: David Eddings' Belgariad, Jim Butcher's Dresden Files and Codex Alera, J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter, Terry Pratchett's Discworld, Lev Grossman's The Magicians, and most everything by David Mitchell, Max Barry, and Joan D. Vinge. Lysistrata and The Birds by Aristophanes. I've never read a Sophocles play I didn't like at least a little.
Movies: I don't watch a lot of movies anymore, so it's hard for me to remember which ones I used to like watching. The Blues Brothers, The Sting, Love Actually, Big Trouble In Little China, The Five Deadly Venoms, The Truman Show, and Gosford Park, let's say are my favourites.
Shows: Doctor Who, Psych, Community, Parks and Recreation, Game of Thrones, The Venture Brothers. I don't watch a lot of television, and I don't even keep up with these unless I'm around people who enjoy/want to watch them.
Music: I honestly like almost every genre I've heard. I enjoy show-tunes and older pop (Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc.), mostly because that's the kind of song I can sing. My voice is not built for rock and roll.
Food: Pasta with garlicky sauce, chocolate mousse, really good hamburgers, gyros, souvlaki, a mixture of Thai foods, sushi, and scalloped potatoes. Also, anything. I have encountered dishes I dislike, but never a kind of food as a whole.
Water that is drinkable.
Food that is edible and nutritious.
Sleep that is sufficiently restful.
Health that hasn't entirely deserted me.
Let me try this again.
Reading and Writing Stories (they are intertwined forever in my mind).
Good friends to share all the above with.
GramaryePrime, I don't care if it's sappy.
Wow, I am just really bad at this.
I do think about sex perhaps more than I'd like to admit, though I spend even more time thinking about kisses and cuddling than I do sex.
I spend a lot of my time thinking about people, and human nature (if it exists), and the world we live in today.
I spend a lot of time thinking about stories, too. Mine, those of others, historical ones, mythological ones... Stories as a whole excite me.
I also spend a lot of my time thinking up jokes that I'm never going to tell anyone on account of how bad most of them are.
Having said all that, here's something: I consider myself to be a terrible person that is actively trying to be a wonderful person so that no one catches on. Friends have told me that I am actually just a good person, but I choose to see this as a sign that it is working.
