My self-summary
I'm a professional student. I've been living in WA all my life and grew up on a quaint island. I think my personality has that island mentality; just being good humored, casual and easy going. I like to keep active, though that doesn't go to say I'm never lazy. Yeah, I'm pretty lazy. Though I'd probably offend a hoard of truly proud underachievers if I said that out loud.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing the book-learnings at Seattle University's College of Electrical Engineering. I play trumpet, though very casually at the moment. I used to take music classes at UW and was in the Husky Marching Band. I'd like bring my skills back up to where I can do some jazz again. I make a meager living as a science and math tutor When I'm not studying or working, I might be exercising, trying to maintain my strengths from being a competitive swimmer and triathlete. When I'm procrastinating, I might be playing video games from 8-bit Zelda to Mass Effect. I might also be trying delicious beer, since I'm on a quest to try every single brewery in Seattle. I'm also spending some time with my motorcycle, whether it's commuting, going on weekend trips or fixing it. I'm ALWAYS fixing the damn thing. On weekends I try to hang with friends. Probably some sort of game night happening. I think I have 3 groups of friends that have game night.
I’m really good at
Music. Trumpet FTW
Cooking deliciousness
DIY everything
Solving math problems. With or without fire.
Computers and electronics
Mechanics (both Newtonian and greasemonkey varieties)
Making jewelry
Picking really good beer
Having a good memory for really mundane things
Putting myself into socially awkward situations
Discussing anything philosophical or scientific
Keeping my word
Never forgetting my failures
Cake decorating
The first things people usually notice about me
Your guess is probably better than mine. I suppose peoples first impressions of me is I'm chill and mild-mannered.

People also notice that they almost always can't pin down my ethnicity. Am I Native American? Hawaiian? ...VIN DIESEL? If only!

Food: Let me put it this way: I would date a girl just to have an excuse to go out and try new and delicious restaurants.
Six things I could never do without
1. A car or bike
2. A week without exercising
3. Weird philosophical conversations
4. Anything that plays music
5. Teh intertubez
6. Showering at the end of the day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future, life, sex, how the universe works, how cats purr and EVERYTHING. My brain relentlessly refuses to not think even when I'm sleeping. I recently had a dream about a differential equation. It was awesome.
On a typical Friday night I am
Who knows? I rarely plan for things. I'm rather introverted, and don't mind relaxing at home after a week of being responsible. But more often than not, I spend time with friends, watch movies, internet videos and/or have a drink with them.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I'm alone, I'll sleep naked. Boxers just bunch up.

I also watched EVERY episode (all 700 or so) of Star Trek. Yes, even Voyager. It's all a blur so don't expect me to know a whole lot of facts.
You should message me if
you're at least looking for a friend that likes do just about anything, like watching movies, playing music, outdoorsy stuff, discussing thought experiments, trying new beer out, or yelling at inanimate objects. We'll see where it goes from there!
The two of us
