My self-summary
I am someone whose heart is fixed on reality. I seek the conviction, depth, and brevity of thought needed to breath and act in a way that lives life with passion and purpose. I find this not in words or actions, but in the space between them. Those moments of silence when I am faced with myself, that is where I find my character.
What I’m doing with my life
Loving my job with Farmers and Merchants Bank, brushing up on my public speaking with Toastmasters, and just generally reading and writing. Training for some runs in 2012. Also game nights with friends and paintball days once in a while.
I’m really good at
Conversation (cocktail talk), bending the imagination, and making plans when given the motivation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I appear very smart, though if I know anything its that I know very little. Also, I look much younger than I am. Sometimes frustrating, but mostly amusing, I really am 26 :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I tend to like non-fiction over fiction, likely because I get a heavy enough dose of fiction in most other categories. Lately I've just finished reading a book called Biocentrism. I also enjoy reading works of poetry and other books of theory aside from the one mentioned. Malcolm Gladwell is one of favorites, I've read all his books. I've also read some Douglass Hofesteader, which I enjoyed a lot. I tackle some more difficult philosophic writers from time to time, like Decarte or Quine, though only when I've built up the mental stamina for it, because blowing my mind all the time can be rather frustrating :) Currently I'm working on reading a collection of works from Orson Scott Card, a book by Tom Wolfe, a book called "Proust was a Neuroscientist", and small list of classics as well. I tend to be a bit scatter-brained and read all over the place in my leisure for reading.

Philosopher Kings, Shawshank Redemption, Demetri Martin comedies, The Office, Scrubs, and many, many, more.

Tend to like artists that mix a lot of styles together such as Linkin Park. I like a lot of alternative music like Coldplay or even some folk types like Lisa Hannigan. I enjoy some rock as well, it largely depends on my mood. There are few types of music I don't enjoy.

Food: Potatoes in any form (I'm Irish, so this is a given), Tangerines, Wheat Thins, Strawberry Pop Tarts, and lots of other sweets as well.
Six things I could never do without
1. My consciousness
2. The consciousness of others
3. The typology of form and being
4. Change
5. I
6. You
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy, Poetry, and Psychology. Lately I've been thinking about time itself and the way it effects our thinking. I've speculated that current popular view of time is just plain off, though my replacement explanation is just as odd, if not more so, than the current view.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working at some point of the day and I spend most of the night with friends doing whatever we can think up as an activity. Vague I know, ask me and I'll let you know! You can come along if you are looking for an adventure!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Though I often feel rather old in this world, I know that I am still rather young in it. The moment I think I know something, I find myself realizing more than before. I am astonished how with greater and greater frequency I find new revelations in my life, it is more beautiful than I can imagine.
You should message me if
you are prone to do so and are privy to such discourse. In advance, I thank you for your time and considerations. Also, I should note, I have a hard time knowing what to message some people I'd like to chat with. These profiles are a small (very small) piece of what we really are and give me very little to work off of in terms of discussion. So I'm sorry if an opening message from myself might seem short and plain, but really ladies, give a guy something to work with :) Aside from stating an intent of interest in getting to know you, what more can the first few lines of text really hold?
The two of us
