My self-summary
Hello there. I'm Victor Frankenstein, and I am the true monster in my story... wait that isn't right. I haven't done any modern day necromancy... yet? Anyway, my real name IS equally or more powerful, but as this is the Internet... well I can't tell you. Hah! Secret tease! *cough* However, for now I can give you that I am Alex and in time you can have the rest to conjure by at a later date.

Ahh, here's my mission statement: I am looking for the long term, preferably the one and only. I don't play games and I have no interest in one night stands. See that there?! That's gold! Or at least that's what I hear.

So here we now come to the third (magic!) and final bit of the summary. Just some few key things about me. I am a bookworm of the 777th degree and my most prized possessions are my ever, overflowing bookshelves of glory. I love to talk about science, history, and that nonsense that pops up at the top of your head. I will eagerly sink my teeth, but mostly my eyes, into any good story no matter the media.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently working at a wonderful restaurant. Not only do I make good money, but my boss and my co-works are awesome. Foods pretty good. The best part is it allows me the time to write down the stories that are flowing through my head. At the rate I am going I should finish my book soon and by the complimentsame of the early work it should be pretty good
I’m really good at
I am good at making people smile, whether or not that is on purpose... well that's pretty debatable, but getting a laugh is getting a laugh. My range of my knowledge is like a ocean, but only deep in some areas. History is the deepest of my knowledge and where I get a lot of material for my writing. Chances are good that any time you spend with me will result in learning something new as random facts are always coming to me.
The first things people usually notice about me
The beard. Never gonna shave it off.

I also get complements on my eyes and my hair which is basically in a constant of growing out as I cut it rarely before cutting it very short.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite series is The Dark Tower by Stephen King and my favorite book is Lion of Ireland by Morgan Llewellyn. The works of Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard (creator of Conan the Barbarian) are fantastic. Stranger in a Strange Land holds a dear place in my heart. I have quite enjoyed the following: The Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson, The Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey, The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan, Asimov's Foundation series, the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, Kingkiller Trilogy by Patrick Rothfuss, and Sevenwaters Series by Juliet Marillier.

Some graphic novels I have liked are Scott Pilgrim and Y: Last Man. I follow some manga like Sword Art Online, Full Metal Alchemist, and Berserk.

I have read a lot of nonfiction as well. Mostly Ancient History and Irish History.

My favorite movie is a toss up between Braveheart and Dark Knight. Also on my top shelve (where I keep my favorite movies and ones I can watch anytime) are Saved(a satire), Live Free or Die Hard, Patriot, Kingdom of Heaven, Thor, Boondock Saints, Shawshank Redemption, Clerks 2, Serenity, LOTR(extended), Fifth Element, and Princess Mononoke. Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead, and Halloween are some of my favorite horror movies. Sean of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and World's End are a laugh. The Lego Movie was awesome and Guardians of the Galaxy was hilarious.

Shows that I have really enjoyed are Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, Supernatural, 30 Rock, Adventure Time, Vikings, How I Met Your Mother, Haven, Dexter, Parenthood, and a couple others. A fan of Star Trek, Firefly, X-Files, Scrubs, Deadwood, etc

My favorite Musician is Luka Bloom and Favorite band is either Cake or Carbon Leaf. Afro Celt is a very amazing international group. My tastes range far. It really only stops at large portions of rap and country, but I don't shun it all. Lately I've been on an 80's rock kick and I'm always up for music influenced with Celtic styles.

Favorite food is hands down, Pizza.

I'm a huge fan of the Mario and Zelda series. Big into FF but the latest have been let downs in my opinion. FF7 and FF9 are the climax of the series. Skyrim is a delightful game, and becomes astounding with mods. I have themoon of Majora's Mask in my sky! Civ 5 is a fantastic game that I sink too many hours into it. Steam has been a very nice medium for my gaming as of late. Alien Isolation has a terrifying and thrilling experience. I highly recommend it. Pokemon isn't the only reason I keep up with Nintendo's handhelds but its one of the main reason.

My favorite Webcomics are Something Positive, Questionable Content, Dumbing of Age, El Goonish Shive, Dominic Deegan, the comics of Minna Sundberg, Girl Genuis, Gunnerkrigg Court, Dr. McNinja, Xkcd, Goblins, Rice Boy comics, WTF comics, Scandinavia and the World, and others.
The six things I could never do without
Books, Trees, History, Dreams, Mystery, and Trust.

The real basic living would then be flint, wood, pyrite, a cave, a wolf, and Astronomy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything, but largely the future, history and myths. Often I will get so caught up in my thoughts that I loose track of myself and the world around me. A lot of time funny things come to me, but only half the time are they funny to others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Kicking back with close friends, reading a book or nerding out with said friends. Hookah is very often involved in my home activities. I do the bar scene from time to time, though honestly rarely. Nothe a big drinker.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I worked at a Boy Scout summer camp for nine summers. O' the stories I have. This is less a secret and more a awesome fact. Also, yes, I did get Eagle.
You should message me if
If you want to chat or spend some time with someone who enjoys conversing on just about any subject.

Also if you could not imagine a life without books. If you're not a bookworm it's gonna be hard for us to relate.

You want go out and catch Pokemon together :)
