My self-summary
Alright, updating this section again. Been a year in PDX since I moved and I think its been great. I'm a bit bored currently, hence this update and trying to meet some new people.

I've figured out I'm someone who doesn't believe in that there can be too much of a good thing. I probably overdo anything that I like and I'm starting to think that its not normal. Anyways, that's a good way to describe my defining characteristic. Other than that, I like my job, apartment and such. I'm very easy going, drink constantly though I know when not to do such. I spend money lavishly when I have it which is to say that my math major has nothing to do with being a finance major.

All in all, I'm on here to meet new people and if something takes off from there, well great but really from past expeience, I'll settle for friends considering online dating has been harrowing at best for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Committing myself to a culinary career.
I’m really good at
Arguing, not really debate but argument. Academically, I would say mathematics but its boring to me. I'd say I'm a good tennis player as well but as far as sports, my skills are probably best used in coaching football.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I don't have a lot of professionalism and that I'm casual about everything.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm haven't read a lot of books lately. Most recently was Utopia by Thomas More but that was over 3 years ago. I read too much Wikipedia; I have Aziz Ansari's habit of looking up everything about stupid things like capsaicin, mud daubers and movie villains. I like online reading a lot too though: Gawker media, Nerd Approved, Politico, mainstream news pref is NBCnews.com, NME.com, Pitchfork, and anything really 49ers related. I know way too many San Francisco media sites for a Montanan.

As far as movies, Silence of the Lambs is the favorite. Big fan of directors Christopher Nolan, David Cronenberg and Neil Blomkamp. Comedically, I'm all over the map. Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Apatow, Shadyac films are all good. Also I like anything with good sentiment, Silver Linings Playbook is a fine example. Good movies are just good movies no matter what they're about, a movie absolutism if you will.

After the required Daily Show and Colbert Report mentions, TV shows include The League, Its Always Sunny, Parks and Rec, The Office, Whitest Kids U Know, Arrested Development, Walking Dead, Mad Men, Freaks and Geeks, Boy Meets World, Dexter, Breaking Bad, House of Cards. Only 7/13 of them are still running so I'm trying to broaden the horizon. I'm not sold on NBC's Hannibal yet or A&E's Bates Motel. They both lack the sinister level of their muses. BBCA's Orphan Black may be the best season 1 going on right now. I'll have to give Sundance's Rectify and On Top of the Lake a chance as well.

Music is by far my greatest interest. I'm probably best described as a British and Indie rock fan. The Vaccines, The Virgins, Palma Violets, Born Ruffians, Arctic Monkeys, The Maccabees, Frightened Rabbit, Foals, Vampire Weekend, San Cisco, Ra Ra Riot, Two Door Cinema Club, Bombay Bicycle Club, Library Voices... Many others but the above are being played constantly currently.

As for food, its the only artistic thing I'm good at. My favorite thing to do is marry Scoville units with the right amount of fruit in a dish; Habaneros, Jalepenos, Poblanos are constantly in the kitchen. Avocados are also always in the mix as the texture and color allows for some colorful dishes. Beef, pork and chicken are easy but in my preference I prefer almost any other meats; lamb, venison, bison, duck etc. And almost any fish or shellfish will be preferred as well especially oysters or lobster.
The six things I could never do without
Politics, 49ers, argument, music, the internet and food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the amount of joy people get from schadenfreude in this country; from reality TV to Youtube, its almost everywhere. I also spend vast amounts of time trying to understand and empathize with people who don't like me; I find that fascinating as well considering that unless someone is downright hateful, I tend to get along with everyone I've met.
On a typical Friday night I am
out drinking and thinking about things. Probably putting too much money into a jukebox somewhere; most likely playing music that will trigger some nostalgia.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really don't know.
You should message me if
you share some of the interests above and don't mind spirited conversation.
