My self-summary
I'm fairly laid back, friendly, and polite. I'm into quite a few nerdy things, though I try to keep as active and social as I can. When I find something I like I tend to throw myself into it 100%. I love to cook, a lot. I love martial arts and get antsy when I'm not studying at least one. I play videogames, though I have less and less time for that. I'm on the internet a lot, either looking up information for a unit I'm teaching or just looking at stupid things to make me laugh. If I'm not laughing, making someone laugh, or laughing at someone else's humor, I'm having a bad day. I have an unhealthy obsession with the Food Network and the NFL. I'm also a BIG dog lover (as in I love dogs a lot, not that I love big dogs). I got a bulldog!

I tend to get weirder the longer you know me. I guess it's a defense mechanism from growing up but I typically start very reserved and quiet, usually speaking or commenting very neutrally. But when I know I've got your trust/your comfortable around me, I tend to open up and you'll know we've clicked if we suddenly have a ton of stupid inside jokes.
What I’m doing with my life
Started boxing last year. I'm in the best shape of my life and only getting better!

Otherwise I'm a school teacher.
I’m really good at
Listening, reading, talking really fast, confusing the hell out of people by making obscure references to completely random things, other things I'm not remembering right now.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suppose that I'm fairly plain and I haven't asked so I don't really know what physically about me is noticeable. . .
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I haven't read anywhere near as much as I should since college keeps getting in the way. My favorite book of all time is Romance of the Three Kingdoms. I enjoy reading comics and manga, but haven't had the time nor the money to do so in a while.

I love animated movies and think that it's a dying medium that needs to survive. I can watch almost anything and enjoy it to some extent or another, though I tend to stay away from slasher horror flicks because I find them mindless (and not in the good way, like some comedies).

My favorite TV shows have started to revolve around food and comedy, I guess because I love to eat and laugh. I also watch a lot football and hockey when nothing else is on. This will probably put off a lot of people, but I tend to really dislike reality TV.

I like to think that I love music, but I'm kind of closed off in terms of being introduced to new stuff. It's not that I won't like it, I just typically don't gravitate to stuff that I'm being urged to listen to. My tastes range but are mainly off-center. Some current favorites are M O O N, Perturbator, Noir Deco, Nujabes, Parov Stelar, the Asteriods Galaxy Tour, Alice in Chains, Motorhead, Faunts, K'Naan, Queen, Skindred, and a bunch of other gibberish. I can listen to almost anything, though.

I love food, a lot. I"ll eat almost anything. Put it in front of me and I'll probably eat it and enjoy it. I also want to learn how to cook better so I can make gorgeous and delicious dishes. I find it incredibly relaxing to cook.
Six things I could never do without
1. My family
2. My friends
3. My computer
4. My phone, which doubles as a computer
5. My dog
6. Good food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
At this point, lesson plans, budgeting, the science of boxing, how best to harass my dog in a way that's both amusing and harmless.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually at home, relaxing. I hate to say it but I'm not much of a party guy. Now, if you and a bunch of friends want to watch a movie with dinner and some drinks, I'm all for it. But going out, overpaying for drinking, and grinding with a bunch of strangers isn't my cup of tea.

Now it's grading!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to do medieval reenactment swordsmanship.

And I really miss it =[

I recently got into tabletop RPGs and think they're ridiculously fun. Only problem is I don't have anyone to play with.
You should message me if
You managed to make it all the way through my profile (it got really long, sorry!) or if you're interested in saying "hi." I enjoy meeting new people and conversation.
The two of us
