My self-summary
I'll admit it, I used to be a real conservative, support-the-empire kind of guy. Go where you're told, do what you're asked, take no questions, give no answers, stay alive. It worked. Really well, actually - at least for a while.

You can't stay ahead of disaster forever, though, and I'm a different kind of guy now. Real liberal - everyone's more or less the same inside, you know? People draw false distinctions to make themselves feel unique, but if you've got a brain and a pulse, you've got a whole lot of the same things going for you as anyone else.

Which brings me to what I'm interested in: meeting people with a brain. I like thinkers, you know? Philosophers, sociologists, scientists, engineers, writers, perpetual students, that sort of thing. They've got a unique flavour to them that I just can't help but want to be around.
What I’m doing with my life
I guess it sort of depends on what you define as a life. Everyone has a different definition for what it means to be alive, you know?

Some people don't really feel alive unless they're doing something dangerous, or training to run the next big marathon in their existence. Some other people are fine with just curling up with a good book, and finding a meaning to their existence in the products of someone else's mind.

I can relate to both of those types of people, I suppose. I spend a lot of time walking around, seeking out life experiences that I haven't already sampled.

But the latter is really what calls to me. I guess I've been spending a fair deal of my time lately trying to find meaning to my own existence in the minds of others. And it's really rewarding, too. Sometimes it can be a little short-lived, but new experiences never last. It's funny how we've all got that in common.
I’m really good at
When I was younger (it's funny, it seems like an entirely previously life, these days) I spent a lot of time taking classes and trying out new things, and picked up a lot of skills. I've forgotten a lot of it now, though. Sometimes you learn things that you just never get to use, you know? It's all right, I guess.

Lately though, people have been saying that my strongest quality is that I just never give up. Life closes a door, I open a window. Life knocks me down, I get right back up. Life goes up a fire escape, I climb over everyone else to get to the roof, too. Life takes off in a helicopter, I find a way to hang on for the ride.

Yeah, my strongest quality is definitely that I'll do anything in my pursuit of life.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a little ashamed to admit it, but the first thing people usually notice about me is that I'm generally a whole lot more interested in meeting them than they are in meeting me.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a creeper or anything (I've met more than enough to know the difference), I just come on kind of strong sometimes. It sets a weird tone for initial introductions, I guess.

Once that introduction phase is over though, things tend to smooth over with everyone I meet. All my friends and I have grown really close. We 'get' each other, you know? We even seem to develop the same goals and values pretty quickly. It's just the meeting new people part that can be tricky.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
To be honest I haven't had a lot of time to appreciate the finer arts lately. It's not that I didn't use to value these things, I've just been really consumed with other, more pressing matters. I guess you could say I've been too hungry for new experiences to appreciate the finer things in life.

In the past I've been really interested in books of all sorts, television and movies too. I've read and seen a lot of fiction - some of it believable, some not. Fantasy and science fiction I always found really interesting, they'd always have plausible justifications for why horrible things happen to people, and a way back from the brink of disaster, like a cure for any problem.

Real life isn't like that, though. There isn't always a cure. Sometimes you just have to move on. Just keep moving on. One step at a time. Forever. You know?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend most of my time thinking about where I'm going next. It's hard to meet new people if you're always standing around in the same place, is my philosophy. I'm always on the move, as a result. I'll be walking around downtown one day, but you might see me in the subway tunnels on the north side the next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Actually, I like to take a break on Friday. You can't spend every waking moment trying to actively accomplish your goals, it's just not good for the body. I'll generally just sit myself down somewhere, not do a whole lot, and wait for people to come to me. You'd be surprised how often it works, when you aren't moving much. Classic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty afraid of getting cut. Knives, swords, axes, that sort of thing, you know? The whole thought of slashing weapons just gives me the creeps.

I also get weirded out by priests. Rabbis, too. Any kind of cleric, really. I don't really have anything against them, they just make me feel uneasy. I'm not really sure why, I guess you could say something about them just turns me off.
You should message me if
If you've been attentive enough to read through all of the details about myself that I've provided, you should have a good idea of what I'm all about. If that's your sort of thing, I think you should reach out to me. I'd love to get to know your brain. You know?
The two of us
