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, 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 going for my masters in Vocal Performance beginning Spring 2016 at the University of North Texas, so I will be moving to Denton by early December.

Also ENTJ. Like whoa.
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished my job working retail at a fancy store in Dallas as I start my transition and move to Denton. By January I'll be a full time student, but I'll be working somewhere around the area so I don't starve. (halfway kidding)

The last six months or so have been a whirlwind of change-- Once I made the decision to go back to school and pursue music for real, things have been exciting, but also stressful. The dust won't settle for a while until mid December when I'm moved and things fall back into place for a while. Every day has been an adventure, so I suppose the best way to answer "What I'm doing with my life" is to simply say, I'm moving forward.
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
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.
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.
