Most of my buds would likely describe me as a friendly, intelligent, compassionate, logical, altruistic guy with a twisted sense of humor and a kind heart. Actually, my friends have never said a word of that, but they would if I paid them first.
I'm an open-book. There's not much I've done in life that I'd consider private. I can keep a secret as a favor to a friend, but I pride myself on honesty otherwise. What's the saying? "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything". Thanks, Mark Twain.
I was born and raised in Portland. I spent a couple of years living in New Jersey but life over there was too fast-paced for me so I moved back to Portland for a while. As I got a little older, even Portland was getting to be a tad too hectic. In the hopes of rekindling a relationship, I moved to Coos Bay. The relationship didn't work out in the long-run, but I enjoy the area so much, I'm still hanging around.
Much like any other Oregonian, I like the outdoors. Every now-and-again I like to escape out to the woods and go for nature hikes or go poking around open pastures and fields for... goodies? Ha. I'm not a big fan of fishing, but camping, boating, and rafting are fun.
Eventually, I'd like to find a repair or networking position with a small IT-based company, but I may need to go back to college for a few years before that becomes a reality. In the interim, I have a history of working high-end tech retail and retail in general.
Otherwise, I'm just trying to make friendly with a few people around town. I don't have many friends around here. I've noticed since I moved from Portland, people in the Coos are relatively untrustworthy of outsiders, so it's a challenge finding dependable folks that aren't only down to chill when free drink or smoke are offered.
When I'm bored, I usually take a pencil to paper and draw out ludacris cartoons and laugh to myself; In retrospect, that sounds a little crazy. I guess I'm not a bad artist in general; I used to draw a lot of comic-style art and I can still pull off realism, but I tend to stick to work that I can start and end quickly. That's probably why I have no patience for painting.
I'm also a pretty amazing cook, I can make some awesome mixed drinks, and I'm a moderately-decent handy-man.
I just finished a book about creating and querying SQL databases. T'was a riveting work of literary achievement. So enthralling, I built a webpage that could query values from a MySQL database. lol.
My favorite movies are usually comedy and horror flicks. Listing titles is a little futile because my favorite movies seem to change pretty drastically from month to month, but here's my "now" list:
Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey
A Nightmare on Elmstreet
The HBO Spawn series
I watch a lot of documentaries, too. I particularly like science and social documentaries, but I'll watch nearly anything.
Musically, I'm a little eclectic. Lately I've been listening to a lot of rap like Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko, A Tribe Call Quest, and Outkast.
I listen to a lot of metal music, too. Stuff like Opeth, Tristania, Cannibal Corpse, Type O Negative, early Manson, and some Iced Earth.
Industrial such as Ministry, A Perfect Circle, old Nine Inch Nails, Mindless Self-Indulgence, and White Zombie.
90's alternative like OLD Greenday, Bush, Silverchair, Soundgarden, and Stone Temple Pilots.
Every once and again I'll listen to techno, nerdcore, video game remixes, 80's rock, 80's synthpop, remixes, or once in a blue-moon, story-driven country. I have to admit a certain respect for Johnny Cash.
I love Mexican food, but where food is concerned, I'll try anything once. I don't eat out a lot, but when I do and I find something I like, I usually figure out some way to emulate it at home and before long, my cooking becomes my favorite whatever-it-is. I can make some killer hamburgers like woah.
2.) Some kind of creative outlet.
3.) Friends and chill sessions.
6.) A vice.
Whenever I'm stressed, I sit down and doodle or screw off in photoshop. It works, and soon enough I'm easy like Sunday morning.
-You and I seem to have a lot in common.
-You're down for some actual conversation.
You should avoid messaging me if:
-You think I'm cute, but my profile is just too damn long to read.
-You're too desperate or lonely to play friendly with me at first.
