I recently became a refugee to the Seattle area after living in the barren wasteland of rural Iowa for twenty-something years. I'm a video game enthusiast and a bit of an introvert.
I find humor in the morbid and the absurd. I tend to be perceived as sarcastic and negative because I find it hilarious to observe how awful the world can be. Ever read Charles Bukowski? It's kind of like that.
Other interests include biology, astronomy (science in general, really), politics, philosophy, Star Wars, the atheism+ movement, and quality booze.
I come across as a pessimist sometimes, but my intent is to always be a realist. Empirical reality is important to me, wishful thinking is not.
I plan to get a bachelor's degree in biology after my contract's up with the damned military. Professionally, I plan to become a mortician; pretty good money if you've got the stomach for it.
I've also been snowboarding pretty much every weekend and am pretty bummed that the season is almost over.
Making fun of terrible movies.
Video games, waxing philosophical, blasphemy, spotting douchebags, ruining moments.
Making people laugh at inappropriate times, for inappropriate reasons.
I often look angry when I'm not. This can be alternately inconvenient or humorous.
