On the flip side, I'm still for the most part a kid at heart =)
I've also developed many interests over the years and have fit or have been conceived of as fitting into many different labels. None of which define who I am by the way. They only shine slivers of light onto the being that is me. And even if they did, they still wouldn't paint my picture. I'm still a work in progress; we all are. That's part of what life is all about. Simply put: Don't assume you know what I'm all about just because I like something. You could be right, but chances are, you're very wrong. Instead of assuming, ask. I have no problems answering :-)
Bottom line: I am easy going, open-minded, and unique
One of those is the ability to let go, to go with the flow. I am by no means an expert at it, but I have made serious progress very recently and it's paid off fairly nicely.
Another of those things is the need for change. Not only in the US, but the world alike. This one has been solidifying for the past few years or so. It's one of the reasons that I went back to school and pursued double majors in sociology and Spanish...
Sociology because I feel that change has to happen at the social level and in order to do that, I have to understand society. Spanish purely because it's something I enjoy. I'd like to learn some more languages at some point as well.
Aside from that I'm still in the process of seeking a new job. Preferably something doesn't exploit other people. I do understand how the game is played though and I realize that I may have to play it in order to get ahead of it and change the rules. I do love my current job though, but make no mistake it sheds no kind of light as to who I am whatsoever.
I've also been re-establishing myself as a halfway decent cook. So if you have any recipes you want to share, send them my way.
A trend I've been noticing lately on here has been a contradiction in "looking fors" I see a lot of people who have selected that they are looking for someone who must be single, while at the same time selecting that they are looking for "new friends" or "long distance pen pals" or "activity partners". I noticed this one day and said to myself, "well shit, non of those should really need a pre-requisite on status. Now I can see where wanting the person to be single kind of matters for those who have the dating options or even the casual sex option selected. Speaking personally though, whether I'm single or not doesn't change the fact that if we click, I'm gonna be the best damn friend I can be. Maybe OKCupid should revamp this section somehow. I have some ideas, but they have people that get paid to do that sort of thing.
Another thing that chaps my ass; pictures. Last time I checked it says your pictures should be just of you. You have a 2 or 3 out of 10 pics with other people in them, fine, but all of your pics? Come on.
Here's another thing. If you are going to judge me just because of the things I choose to share on here, you might as well move on. You can try to put me under whatever label, or into whatever box you choose to. I guarantee though that you will fail. So as to not waste your time, if this is you, keep it moving.

Other: I won't lie, I like video games. Not addicted to the point of staying up for 72 hours straight throwing back energy drinks, but I definitley enjoy them. I own an Xbox 360 and an XboxOne. Any other gamers out there, open or closet, feel free to drop me a line.
Music: I like pretty much everything. Even one or two songs by country artists. Some of my favorite artists, bands and groups are: Selena, Los Lonely Boys, Fozzy, Seal, The Killers, Marc Anthony, Barrio Boyzz, The All-American Rejects, Radiohead, Luis Miguel, The Temptations, Ne-Yo, Hot Action Cop, Boys II Men, The Offspring, Ok Go, Foo Fighters, The Who, Linkin Park, Lenny Kravitz, Black Crowes, No Doubt, Queen, LL Cool J... More to come
Podcasts: Steve Austin Show, Talk is Jericho, The Nerdist Podcast, The Ross Report, Piper's Pit Podcast
Food: I'm not picky about food. There's not much that I don't like, and if I haven't had it I'm always willing to try it.
Of the distant, mostly what kind of place this world is going to be when my children have to go out into it. As it stands right now, it's a pretty scary thought...
