My self-summary
I'm a habitual line-stepper that you can't help but love or just love to hate. I am an extremely eccentric person with a knack for catching on to most things I try. I love adventures, experiments, travel, languages, food, fitness, culture, stories, and learning. I am also a huge classical music nerd and a gaymer with pride. Video games, card games, board games, whatever. I'm into it.

I don't want to say too much else (because conversations are a thing), but I am currently in my second year of my masters in Vocal Performance at the University of North Texas. I'm slated to graduate December 2017.

Also ENTJ. Like whoa.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm working on my master's degree in Opera Performance at UNT and that really takes up most of my time. When I have the chance I'll try to play a video game or sneak out to play Magic: The Gathering, but generally I'm either in class, at the gym, rehearsing, or practicing. When the moon is full though, legend has it you might find me at a bar after hours pretending like I don't have to wake up at fuck-all o'clock in the morning.
I’m really good at
I typically catch on to things pretty quickly, so I guess I'm really good at learning.

I also love cooking, and I often challenge myself to new and difficult dishes. If I want company, I usually just have to say I'm making dinner.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually my hair- it's curly, lol.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

All my cookbooks
Anything else I've found lying around

Movies:
Chocolat
The Fall
Moulin Rouge
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Pan's Labyrinth
Labyrinth (Gotta love me some David Bowie)
an assortment of really bad horror movies
and a few really good horror movies.
I also have a secret love for documentaries.

Music:
I'm not picky on music but classical is my favorite. Call me lame, but gimme some Bach, or something crazy like Ives and I'm set. If it's not classical, usually singer/songwriter or Indie rock is what I'll go for.

Food:
My favorites are southwestern and Japanese.
If I'm going out I'll usually end up at either a divey Tex-Mex place (they've always got the best food) or some small Asian restaurant.
I constantly crave VERY spicy food. Be warned, sometimes I'm seeking a dinner that doubles as a test of manhood.

But really-- I'll eat anything if it's made right.
There are no bad foods, only bad cooks.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee
My record system
Duct Tape
A Piano or working keyboard
Hot Salsa
Cast-Iron Skillet

Had I these six things I could live on a deserted Island for years. Yes, Salsa is THE condiment for life. Salsa is a way of life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Careers, money, relationships, new projects, old memories, friends, and what's for dinner. Anything else I tend to over analyze, and isn't worth putting here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays aren't usually the night I can go out as my schedule is always changing. When I have a weekend or time off I try to hang out with friends either in someone's apartment, or out and about at a bar or two.
If there's a new restaurant or great bar (especially a cocktail bar, or a rare beer release) I'll probably find an excuse to get out there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I play Magic: The Gathering virtually whenever I get the chance. If you're curious, I play Commander format (EDH).
You should message me if
I'm looking for someone who's never afraid to be himself.

Be funny, be clever, be weird
and be honest.
