My self-summary
My method of introducing myself to the entirety of my uni's literature and language faculty was to say, 'I'm Chris and I'm a massive fucking weeb.'
Take from that what you will.

I'm generally just a quiet, chilled out nerdy guy. I game, write stuff, read manga etc etc. I get dressed up as a redcoat highlander and shoot people dressed up as the French.
Standard nerd fare.

Take is as it comes, I guess. I'm certainly one of those talk to me to get to know me kinda guys. If I'm honest, there's not much more to me. I'm chill and like to have a laugh. I am a tad socially retarded though, so I hate sending first messages and such.
I know, I know... massive character flaw right there. /shrug
Quick heads up; I don't have premium or A-list or whatever it's called. If you click that like button, all I get is a little number pop up and a weird feeing that I'm being stalked. I don't know who likes me unless they contact me. Don't blame me, that's OKC for ya.

Also, I have a habit of talking like a pompous goit at times; don't worry, that's just me being an idiot.
Continue.
What I’m doing with my life
I studied Industrial Sciences and Animal Management at college and Animal Behavior at university, so I do have a few brain cells. Currently doing... well, a number of things. I guess you could call me an... online merchant? I buy and sell stuff online basically.

I now study TESOL (google it, easier than explaining) and Japanese Language, which is a lot easier than you might think. Best thing? I get to spend the second year at a Japanese university.

So Japan; prepare your anus.

Now currently attending Yamagata University and finding that life here is, well... a little bit too easy. It's a laugh though.
I’m really good at
... Nerdy stuff.
I do a few crafty bits, like leatherwork and stained glass but they're just idle hobbies.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure really... the beard?
The glasses?
The air of casual boredom?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well... I could list my favorite anime and manga, but I doubt this box will be big enough... I also read a lot of apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic and hard scifi books. A lot of Stephen Baxter's work recently.
Metro 2033 deserves a special mention. Such a brilliant book.

I watch a lot of war films and documentaries too; I am a bit of a military history freak.

I used to listen primarily to metal, but now it's 90% anime OPs and Vocaloid; this pisses many people off, amusingly. Then again, I only really listen to music as a background to other things (reading, writing, working, the list goes on...), so I'm not exactly a musical connoisseur.

As for food... Give me bacon or give me death, for I shall suffer no vegetarian fascism! I don't judge other people's eating habits, so why should I be demonised by eco-terrorists for eating a burger?

I like waffles too. Waffles and brioche. But we're getting sidetracked...

I should probably mention that I'm a pretty hardcore gamer. I bet I've spent more money on Steam than I have at pubs, which is a lot.
The six things I could never do without
My pug. I would be lost without my pug
My PC and my lifeline
Pepsi/Dr Pepper
The internet
Drunk Skype conversations with foreigners
Last but definitely not least, my friends from all over the world.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This box used to be filled with a ton of philosophy and crap, but it caused too many... fragile egos to complain and report me.

Sufficed to say, I do a lot of deep thinking. Nature of gender roles in modern society, sexual (in)equality, humanity's place in the natural order etc etc. Not your typical manly man. I see the logic in dropping gender roles from time to time. But don't misunderstand me; I am not a feminist. I am the polar opposite of a modern feminist; an egalitarian.

I also managed to prove that backward time travel and gates to alternate realities were mathematically possible within the laws of quantum physics, proving that having sex with your past or alternate self constitutes masturbation, regardless of your doppelganger's gender.
Mind you, I was very, very drunk at the time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Studying my arse off. It's a wonderful life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hm.
I... uh... You know, I don't really have any really private secrets. I'm fairly open about myself.
You should message me if
Beards. You gotta like beards, 'cause mine ain't going nowhere.

But generally if you are nerdy or like nerds. I'll talk to anyone and can fit into many social circles, but we'll get on much better if you know what I'm on about with the obscure references.

If you have an accent, that's a big bonus right there.

And if you want to do some damage to female stereotypes, sending the first message is a pretty good start.
Just saying.

Also, should really add that I'm not really looking for any kind of relationship or even sex. Hell, I'm only here for a few months. Just want to make a few mates to chill and chat with.
