What I’m doing with my life
I currently have my bachelors in Applied Geology with a minor in Nanotechnology and am in Grad School working on getting my masters in Geoscience with a field certification in GIS and Remote Sensing.
I’m really good at
I'm surprisingly good at getting large amounts of work done in short amounts of time under pressure. I'm in no way a world class chef though I do like cooking and can be fairly good at it from time to time. I wouldn't say I'm especially good at writing but I do like to write when I can get the time, even if I don't end up finishing most of it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: For fiction tend to prefer SciFi particularly Neal Stephenson, Asimov, Clark, David Brin, and Jorge Luis Borges thought I do also like Fantasy if its interesting or well developed enough: i.e. Tolkien, Terry Prachett, Patrick Rothfus, H.P. Lovecraft. For non-fiction as long as the event/concept interests me and its not too badly written I enjoy it i.e. All Tomorrows, Year Million, Uncle Tungsten,The Transparent Society. Sadly after becoming a grad student I haven't been able to read as often as I'd like.
Movies: SciFi, Comedy (good), and anything that has a sufficiently interesting premise. John Dies At The End, Blade Runner, Alien, Robin Hood Men In Tights, Spaceballs, Big Trouble, Dark City, Stargate... etc.
TV Shows: I barely watch TV anymore. It's less a conscious decision and more just the fact that I can't get around to it. I do still watch some stuff on Netflix though. Farscape, Louie, Firefly, Red Dwarf, That Mitchell and Webb Look,Stargate SG1, Cosmos, Connections.
Music: I have an odd and varied taste in music. I enjoy pretty much anything that has an interesting concept to it. Ayreon Into The Electric Castle FTW (and pretty much any of Anthony Arjen lucassen's projects), Blue Oyster Cult, Marc Cohn, Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, Devin Townsend.
Games: I'm also fairly big into games, though again more interested in anything that has a neat concept: Planescape: Torment, Thief 1-3, Deus Ex, the Elder Scrolls Series, Portal, etc.
Food: I'm a fan of almost anything with an interesting flavor, Sushi, Curry, Hallal food and so on.
Six things I could never do without
1. Modern Medical Care
2. The internet
3. Something decent to read (Even if I can't get around to reading it it's nice to know something's there)
4. Other people
5. Some means of recording my thoughts and ideas
6.Food and clean water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Vast existential dilemmas, the meaning of life, whether we inhabit a simulacrum, First contact scenarios, where humanity is ultimately headed, which type of stout is the best, as well as various infinitely more mundane topics. This is not to say I'm smart as much as that I tend to get off topic easily.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out having fun with friends (sometimes), chilling back at home with a cold one (more often), or working on trying to finish off the weeks work (depressingly most often).
The two of us
