My self-summary
I made this profile a few years ago hoping it would help me find someone I thought I was supposed to find. Someone everyone thinks they'll find. Recently I've realized that I don't need what I was looking for back then. My life is nobody's problem but my own, and if I happen to bump into someone who feels the same way I do, then that's great. I really just want to enjoy life, and the best way forward is with people.

I love the universe, and if you don't, you're missing out. I'm skeptical, I meditate, and I listen to Kate Bush. My aspirations lie outside Alabama, but I have no idea when I'll get there. For now I'm just trying to get by with people worth getting there with.
What I’m doing with my life
Friends and family are really the sum of my life to this point. I went to school for 2 years and change until 2011, but don't have a degree. I'm currently looking to get some IT certifications to make myself marketable, but until then I'm living the cheap life.
I’m really good at
Missing the trees for the forest. The big picture tends to capture so much of my attention, that I forget that not everyone is terrible, and not everything sucks. It just looks that way from a distance.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quiet as fuck. I'm usually the guy who needs to be approached and then subsequently pried open like an oyster to find the conversation. That's not to say i don't like to talk, I just don't tend to offer up unsolicited words.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books would have to be Demon Haunted World, Billions & Billions, and The Varieties of Scientific Experience, all 3 by Carl Sagan, The Fabric of Reality by Brian Greene, A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking, and The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. I love existential pieces, philosophy, and, obviously, anything that has to do with the universe and the natural world.

As far as movies are concerned, my favorites would have to be The Big Lebowski, God Bless America, The Truman Show, Interstellar, The Matrix trilogy, Donnie Darko, Harold and Maude, Inside Out, Pleasantville, and pretty much any documentary that seems interesting. If I can't feel any emotion from a movie or use it as a means of transporting myself to some fantasy universe, what's the point?

Favorite TV shows are Rick and Morty, Bojack Horseman, Game of Thrones, Family Guy, F is for Family, and Cosmos (old and new).

Musically, I'd say my favorites are Portugal The Man, Redbone, Grouplove, Cat Stevens, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Of Monsters and Men, The Cat Empire, Reel Big Fish, Cake, Ok Go, The Shins, and The New Pornographers. I'm open to anything that aims to either give me a feel-good-tingle, or anything that evokes emotion. Some newer stuff I've discovered and love is Fitz and the Tantrums, M83, Electric Guest, Lorde, Cold War Kids, and Bronze Radio Return. And apparently I can relax with some friends, put on the album Bliss Release by Cloud Control for hours and not feel like I've heard the same song twice. So that's always fun.

I'm not very picky as far as food is concerned. I'm just not a fan of coconut (not the taste, the texture), and spicy foods. I just don't seem to be able to stomach either very well.
Six things I could never do without
1. Family
2. Friends
3. The Internet
4. Freedom to explore the universe
5. My brain to comprehend our small sliver of the universe
6. The trees in our great big forest
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe, and everything. There are so many thoughts to be thunk. So many things that people should be talking about, but aren't. I love the beauty in the universe, and I love thinking about it. I could lose weeks staring at the stars, if only the sun didn't peskily brighten my slice of the atmosphere once a day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Expanding my fucking mind, man. Or trying to; Lately Friday nights have consisted of hanging out with my dog and being glad the week is over.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You always think your eyes are open. You think you understand. I know I did. As minutes pass, you are sure you're just you and that's where the line is drawn. But one day, it hits you. You realize that we are all connected, even though most of the time we pretend we don't want to be.
You should message me if
And only if this video resonates with you:

If you don't care about the big questions, then you should probably give that some thought before sending anyone messages on OkCupid.
The two of us
