If your still reading this...good job!
How to better myself. Problem Solving, Ancient History, Geopolitics & Global Affairs, Science, Military Stuff, Philosophy, figuring out how things work and why it was developed and implemented the way it is.
I'm always looking to get out of my comfort zone and try something new, any suggestions?
If you have any fun ideas for a Friday night! Like I said I want to broaden my horizons and try new things.
I'm just trying to see who's out there.
I'm mostly just looking for the potential for a good friendship that may lead to an exclusive relationship.
If you want to get super nerdy and talk about Game of Thrones, I'm addicted.
If you have something witty to say. ;)
