My self-summary
Just a working man looking for something real. I'm not too keen on trying to force anything so I'm all for keeping things casual but if there's a spark then why not go with it?

I suppose I should talk about myself now; I'm Mexican born and Seattle raised. Moved out of Seattle when I was 14 and moved to *Montana where I spent the next 9 godforsaken years of my life. Finally, I was presented with the opportunity to ditch that place and move back to the concrete jungle so here I am. Obviously a lot of things happened in 9 years and in my time in Seattle but I can't give too much away. Gotta have some mystery! Or at least some conversational material.

To give people some insight though; most of my work skills and ethic come from the restaurant industry. I started working in a restaurant at the age of 8 (it was not a family owned establishment) and I have even gone as far as to own my own restaurant. I'm as straight forward as they come and I don't like to mince words. I can have a somewhat dry sense of humor or it can be awful cheesy and goofy. It depends on the setting. A lot of people talk about how they like to hike or go camping other something of the sort but I'm not that kinda guy... if you recall, I spent 9 years in Montana... I've done my camping and hiking. I'm done with that..not to say I won't compromise but it's definitely not a priority.

*Montana is by far the worst place I have ever lived. Personal opinion folks. You can love, I can hate it. Agree to disagree. If you'd like to know more, just ask.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm surviving. I'm trying to do whatever makes sense for me and for my family. That means I've got a stable job and I'm looking to start college soon. Aside from that, I'm also reading a lot, cooking, and playing video games. I'm also trying to obtain some semblance of a social life.
I’m really good at
I can cook one hell of a meal. I can make a lot of different dishes. Speaking of dishes, I tend to get a lot of them dirty when cooking. Fatal flaw, I know. Hopefully the meal is worth the work afterwards. I'm good at reading a book. I have a weird thing where I can skip 2 or three nouns at a time when reading and automatically fill in the blanks with the appropriate words to increase my reading time. It's probably the weirdest thing to be able to brag about.

The six things I could never do without
I could not live without my family. Everything I do and everything I am is because of my mother and my grandparents. I owe them everything.

Food. I love me good food. I love cooking good food. I love the process of picking ingredients. I love stuffing my face. I love food.

My cellphone. I hate that I'm so reliant on it but I do my work off of my phone so I need it. It keeps me in touch with the people I love since they aren't near.

The city. I thrive on the chaos of the city. I live for the city. I love that there's always something going on. There's always an event or a store open. The city is always alive and I love that!

Friends. There are a very select few individuals that I would do anything for. Friends that have done so much for me that I couldn't imagine life without them.

Netflix. I hate to say it but sometimes when I need to just escape reality for a while. Netflix has always been there. Netflix doesn't cheat. Netflix doesn't sleep with my best friends. Netflix never abandons me. Netflix takes me away from my stressful day.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future. What else can I do to better provide for myself and for my family. How can I better improve myself and how can I let that take root in other aspects of my life. Also, did I leave the damn stove on? What's next for dinner? Where did I put my phone? Damn, is it my turn to pay for dinner this time or is it theirs? Crap, I didn't leave the stove on, I left the iron on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Right now, all I do is work and come home to netflix. I have nothing else going on until I meet new people. Change my Friday nights folks!
You should message me if
You're looking for a friend or if you find me interesting. Maybe you want to show me around or you wanna talk about a show or something we have in common. I'm the most easy going person to talk to. Tell me a joke. Tell me a story.
