My self-summary
So the last couple of months have led to some changes in my life, and I thought I should update this a bit. I'm looking for a relationship right now since things have unfortunately not worked out the way I'd hoped. What am I looking for in a relationship? Someone with maturity and similar interests and goals. The big goal for me right now is a family; I hope to be a dad by 30. And no, I'm not looking to leave my genes behind and call it a day. Maybe it will scare some people off, but it's what I'm looking for, and I'm going to do my damnedest to get it.
What I’m doing with my life
What am I doing with my life? Long story short, I am trying to live the American dream. No, not the white picket fence in the suburbs with the middle management job. That is an illusion sold to the American public by Hollywood and the large corporations, and an insult to the real American dream at that. No, my dream, the true American dream, is simple; to better myself and my position in life. To wake up each day a better person than when I last awoke.

As to how I am going about that, education is the key for me. I am a very curious person, and so I spend a great deal of my time learning. Whether that knowledge is practical (such as how to make napalm... ok, so that really isn't that practical) or intellectual (I am currently reading a book by the philosopher Niztsche), I enjoy learning simply to learn.

Much of that knowledge, however, is being used to improve my lifestyle, especially financially. Currently I am a student, but I hope, in the very near future, to begin my own businesses, to financially secure my future and any family I will one day have. Although, admitedly, my motivation for this is also selfish; there are many toys, mostly of the motorized variety, that I want. Long story short, I would like to one day have a millionaire's lifestyle. That said, however, having people in my life that care about me, and me about them, is more important to me than any amount of money or toys.
I’m really good at
My best talent is somewhat vague; I am an excellent learner. Learning for me has always been very easy. Along with that, I am very mechanically inclined. There isn't a component on a car, for example, that I don't understand, at least at a basic functional level. Aside from that, I also have a good grasp of politics and (I think) personal relationships. I'm also pretty handy with a computer, I can weld, build stuff, and more. And, if a little shameless self promotion can be allowed, I have also been told, on many occasions, that I am also very good in bed.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, if I could read minds like this there would be no need for me to be here would there? Which is a long way of saying I don't know. However, my intelligence and wit is something that people have commented on, and I have also been told that I am not too bad on the eyes. However, this is a question that other people are far better equipped to answer, so I'll leave this one up to you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books first. My favorite genres are sci-fi/fantasy and technical (ever met someone whose bedtime reading was Chassis Engineering? Now you have.), although political and sociology also feature somewhat heavily in my personal library. As far as movies go, I am not a fan of horror, but I enjoy pretty much all other genres. Again, however, sci-fi/fantasy and action are a preferred subject. Mostly, though, I can enjoy something from any genre as long as it has good acting, interesting characters and an engaging plot. Music is a similar story, as I enjoy music from pretty much all genres. The only one I can't stand is country, and even then, there are a few songs that are good enough for me to like. And finally, food. I have two big likes in food; meat and sweet. I love meat too much to be a vegitarian, and I also have a major sweet-tooth. Asian food, particularly sushi, is also a favorite of mine.
Six things I could never do without
Well, food, water and oxygen spring to mind. The problem with this question is the answers change over time. So instead, let me say a little about my priorities and values. Priority one, for me, has always been people. Whether friends or family, people are important to me. A machine, as special as it may be, can be repaired or replaced. A photograph, no matter how special the occasion was, is still just a trigger for the deeper memory. And a home, no matter how long you lived there, was only a home because of the people who lived there. I have made it my mission, if you can call it as such, is to help as many of those around me as I can.

Another priority has been to protect and improve the environment I live in. This isn't manifest as simply being "an environmentalist", although I am one, but also extends to leaving my surroundings better than they were when I arrived. This can be as simple as picking up bits of litter (though I am not obsessive about it), and as complex as contemplating viable alternative sources of energy for society to consume (though nothing has come of that as of yet). I suppose the best way to describe this was put best by a friend of mine when he said, "Be a good steward of people, places and things". It's a lofty ideal, to be sure, but, as they say, nothing worthwhile is ever easy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Many things. Lately, my finances and business projects have been taking up the mojority of the thinking time my brain has available. At other times, however, and now as well (though less so now), politics, society, environment and equality take up their fair share. After that comes the fun stuff, such as cars, technology and movies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably doing something different from the Friday before. Especially this summer, as I will have been in no less than seven different states.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It might not be too surprising, or even private, for those who actually know me, but I'll admit to a good deal of uncertainty and worry at this point in my life, relating primarily to finances and school, and my lack of success in the later in the past. And this isn't the usual tale of woe; I am financially secure at the moment, my concern is that I can see that financial security slowly but surely (and not all that slowly, to be honest) beginning to evaporate before my eyes. My hope is that the business ventures I'm working on pan out, and lead to some security for the future.
You should message me if
You should message me if you think I'm interesting and wish to know more about me. That's all. I will respond, and if I don't find you engaging, no hard feelings, we just weren't meant to click.
