My self-summary
Hi my name is James. I really like talking to people and getting to know them and making them laugh. I would like to think that I am very easy to talk to and I try my best to be open about my opinions while being open to the opinions of others. I am a very much a geek at heart. I love science, computers both hardware and software, science fiction, fantasy, video games, books, and movies. One of my favorite things to do is cook with and for people, especially for my friends and people I am getting to know.
Mostly I am just looking for someone to laugh and have fun with, watch movies of all sorts, get to know well, and have interesting conversations with and see where things go.
What I’m doing with my life
Well, right now I am a student in Clarksville. I am about to complete my degree in physics with minors in mathematics and computer science. I do not think I want to go to graduate school yet, but in a year or two I think I would like to get a masters degree in engineering or something close to that. Until then I am looking to try some technical jobs working with computers or mathematics to see what kind of careers I would be happy with. As well as trying to make new friends, and enjoy life as much as possible.
I’m really good at
I like to think I am good at talking to people once the ice gets broken, the first words are always the hardest. I enjoy listening to what people have to say and I try really hard to be a good friend. I try to be very patient and kind, life is just to short to get mad at most things.
I do pretty well in school and my friends like to say that I am smart, but I don't really see myself as a genius. I am pretty good at problem solving and figuring out how things work.
Lastly, I would say that I am a pretty great cook, I really enjoy cooking with or for someone. ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
Personality wise, I would say that most people notice how friendly, kind, and open I am, maybe laugh a little at my jokes.
Physically, I would say people notice my big blue eyes, my beard, and that I am a little on the tall side.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favorite authors are Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert, Orson Scott Card, Anne McCaffrey, Anne Rice, and Garth Nix. I really enjoy the different ideas they present in their writings and the stories they tell. Science fiction is one of my favorite genres because the writer has enough freedom to make an entirely new world while at the same time presenting things that may be possible in the future or that use principles of science we have today in new ways which is really cool to think about.

As far as my movie tastes, I really enjoy documentaries, comedies, science fiction and action movies a lot, but I am game for most all movies at least once. There is a special place in my hear for bad movies. They can be very entertaining. Some of the movies that I have really enjoyed lately/would recommend are Her, Cloud Atlas, Chillerama, Robot & Frank, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, and Timer.

In the music department, I am classic rock kind of guy, but I really enjoy most of the range of rock and metal. Some of my favorite bands are Queen, ACDC, System of a Down, and Styx, but I enjoy most all of it. Other genres I really enjoy are Motown, classical, electronic, electroswing, and funk. Some more recent musicians that I really like are Macklemore, Pharrell Williams , and Daft Punk.

For food, I really enjoy most tastes and dishes. It comes with the territory of being a cook. I love sweet tea and spaghetti, my mom made it almost every week when I was a kid. Cantaloupe is really one of the only things that I hate, especially in fruit salad. The cantaloupe flavor poisons all the other fruit. XP
Six things I could never do without
My friends
My computer
A kitchen
The internet
Good books
Enjoyable company
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend time thinking about lots of different things. Philosophy, sociology, psychology, ethics, politics, sciences of all types, and how things work or interact are all things I enjoy thinking about and discussing. It is really fun to talk about why things are the way they are or how things would work if things were different. I try my best to keep an open mind to new ideas and to try to look at things for as many different angles as I can.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with friends and/or finishing the last of my programming homework before the weekend. Netflix also is a good bet for a Friday night, but every now and again I go out and about with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never learned to ride a bike when I was a kid. My parents bought me a bike one year for Christmas. When it got warmer and I was learning to ride my bike, this kid at school tripped me and I broke my wrist. I could not ride my bike for a few months and I kind of forgot about it, so it rusted up and I never learned to ride a bike.
You should message me if
I am looking to make new friends and meet new people. If you would enjoy watching movies, playing some video games, going on a date, cooking some great food together, or talking about interesting things with someone new, send me a message. =) I like to write back.
Also feel free to ask me mostly anything. I am a rather open person.
