My self-summary
Argh, I'm terrible at this sort of thing. Never feels like I capture myself very well in text, ya know? Oh well, here goes.

Lived in Texas my whole life and still don't feel like I fit in. I don't drive a truck or own a cowboy hat. I don't listen to country music. Don't smoke, don't drink, no drugs. I'm not a Christian in even the most forgiving sense of the word, and politically I lie somewhere between centrist Democrat and Libertarian (still trying to figure that one out). Not that I have anything against these basic tenets of Texanism, its just that I feel a bit misplaced, like I'm some sort of agent sent from California or Washington to spy on the people of this great state... but I digress.

I have a tendency to keep to myself, mostly because I put too much thought into what people I don't know think about me. As a result in public I have a tendency to be pretty stoic and serious, and it's a habit I've desperately been trying to get rid of. The exception to this is when I'm with friends, or at least people I know, where I feel like I can really be myself.

I hate trying to characterize myself, but if I had to pick a few descriptors I would go with intelligent, thoughtful, sharp, and witty with a dark sense of humor.

Just going to throw a few more things down before this turns into a 5-page essay:
- I really enjoy Norse mythology
- Bit of a computer nerd
- Probably other kinds of nerd too
- I'm a distant relative of John C. Calhoun, a man Andrew Jackson is quoted as regretting not killing
- I play the occasional tabletop RPG
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working towards an undergraduate degree in Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University. Also currently in the process of trying to get my private pilot's license.
I’m really good at
I have it on good authority from a lot of my friends that I'm a pretty funny guy, which is good because I like making people laugh. I'm usually pretty reserved and quiet, though. Despite being a pretty horrible procrastinator I've always done pretty well in school, especially math and sciences.

I've been painting plastic models/miniatures for a few years now and I've gotten to a point where I'm pretty proud of a lot of the things that I paint.

I can also ice skate pretty well and always find myself wishing I played hockey. I suppose as far as most people go I'm also pretty good at flying airplanes, even though I'm not technically a pilot yet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a fairly tall guy with long hair that just about goes down to the middle of my back, so I stand out a bit. Other than that probably that I'm usually listening to music.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For music, I'll listen to just about anything depending on my mood, but heres the favorites:
-Rammstein, Apocalyptica, Amon Amarth, Dethklok, Nightwish

I don't really watch a lot of movies, but when I like to watch horror movies with good friends. Nothing beats properly mocking a horror movie with a group of good friends. Otherwise I like to watch comedies or sci-fi movies, with the occasional well known movie that I still haven't seen thrown in (still haven't seen Boondock Saints). About the only TV I watch is the occasional show on Adult Swim.
Movie - Probably Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail
Show - Metalocalypse or The Venture Brothers

For books, I usually just wind up reading some mindless sci-fi stuff to pass the time. Not great literature, but good for clearing the mind and passing some time.
Favorites: Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Brave New World, Gaunt's Ghosts novels
The six things I could never do without
- My family, couldn't have asked for a better one
- Friends
- Ice Hockey
- Music
- Computer
- The wonderful and often insane world of the internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot of things. Things I've done, things I want to do, things I'm doing. Things I've been putting off doing.

Sometimes I think about some absurd stuff, like what I would do if I had a time machine, or if I had some sort of superpower.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably hanging out with friends or at a hockey game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've spent embarrassingly long periods of time watching videos of cats on Youtube.
You should message me if
you feel like it. Seriously, I can't stop you. Go for it.
