My self-summary
It's very hard to describe a person in a summary like this, so I'm just gonna leave some random things about me.

I'm always up for chatting to anyone, so don't be shy about sending me a message.

I like to be outside, and I love the snow. My body runs hot so cold weather is preferred. There's a good chance you'll find me at one of the local metroparks when it snows. I just wish I had more time to hike.

I haven't been on many vacations in my life. I'd like to go, someday, but mostly I like to focus on making my real life better. And it works. I enjoy myself immensely locally. There's more to do than one would think around here.

I'm fond of making stupid decisions. They're more fun and make for great stories. But I'm really good at not dying so it works out. I love to go off the path and see things most people miss.

I work out often and like to stay active. I've mostly done cardio but I'm trying to get into weights. I have no idea what I'm doing though and I'd love to find a gym buddy to help push my boundaries. It's much easier with two people.

I've recently started rock climbing in my spare time. It's fantastic, a lot if fh n and a great workout. Care to join me?

I might possibly be looking for a roommate. I definitely don't want someone I found randomly online to move in immediately but if I get to know you and see that you can take care of yourself it might be something to think about. I've had bad experiences with roommates in the past though so I'm going to be picky.

More than anything, I want a pet pig. Desperately. They're absolutely adorable and one day I WILL have one.

I own my own place, have a car and a stable job, if you're into that sort of thing. I'm very self-sufficient and I'm not looking for a sugar-daddy. That said, I'm not expecting you to be perfect when it comes to these situations. I had a lot of help to get me where I am today, and I'm not gonna judge someone else based on how lucky I was. If you're trying and staying active you're golden in my book.

Now, if you're looking for a sugar-daddy, you might want to move along. With that house and car comes bills and a mortgage. I can be a splenda-daddy at best. Possibly a sweet-n-low-daddy if you're nice enough.
What I’m doing with my life
I've spent the past year and a half working seven days a week. I averaged one or two days off of work a month and as strange as it seems, I kind of liked it. I thrive on stress, and being bored is the worst thing in the world.

I did quit my weekend job recently, so I'm just working the standard 9-5. I did it because for the past year and a half I've had no social life whatsoever and I'd like to change that. I'm getting better at time-management and I'm always trying to make time for friends, old and new.

I just bought a condo here in Holly so I'm playing poor. It's totally worth it though. I've never owned property before. It's pretty frikken exciting!

I've been reading up on this Primal Blueprint thing lately and it seems really interesting. Just a week of it and I've already toned quite a lot. I'm noticing a huge difference and I plan to keep it going. Ask if you'd like to know anything about it!
I’m really good at
I'm told I'm a pretty good cook in general, but I know I'm really good at baking. I make amazing cookies, pies, and brownies. I'm finally branching out to other things. It's a lot of fun to experiment in the kitchen (winkwink) with new recipes. I always change something when I get a new recipe, to (usually) amazing results.

As I said before I'm really good at doing stupid things and not dying. I'm always the first to suggest wandering off the path and into the woods. Don't get stuck with me in a horror movie.

Also, I'm excellent at flirting. With girls. Which doesn't help me at all.
The first things people usually notice about me
You know that thing where you start really craving french toast but you live alone so getting all the ingredients for it is really impractical so you put it off until the craving gets REALLY INTENSE and you cave in and buy all the ingredients just to make it and eat one piece before realizing that you don't really want french toast and then you have to figure out what to do with a gallon of milk, a dozen eggs, and a WHOLE LOAF of bread like seriously how is one person supposed to eat all of that bread before it goes bad?

Anyway my eyes are like a pretty bluish-green.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read obsessively. I'll happily read anything someone suggests to me, though I usually go for true to life stories. Still, I love getting lost in a series like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games. And I'll happily snatch up anything having to do with with Fairy Tales.
Some of my current favorite books: Dry and Magical Thinking by Augusten Burroughs, The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls, Small Wonder by Barbara Kingsolver, A thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, and Carrie by Steven King. This changes often depending on my mood. I also enjoy more trashy books like anything by Chelsea Handler and Augusten Burroughs novels. We Live Inside You by Jeremy Robert Johnson was an easy, fun read.
David Sedaris is one of my idols. I am hopelessly in love.
I adored Neil Gaiman's American Gods, Coraline, and Anansi Boys. If you want graphic novels his Sandman series was excellent, along with Craig Thompson's Blankets.
I'm always looking for new book suggestions if you have one. I have a bookshelf full of new books to read but they won't keep me forever.
I have to admit, I do have a Kindle. I greatly prefer real books but the Paperwhite isn't terrible and the books are cheaper. It's nice to not have to carry around a separate giant suitcase just for books when I go on vacation as well.

I love a good horror movie, though there are so few of them out these days. I loved Cabin in the Woods, and The Conjuring was pretty good. Sunshine was excellent, and despite it's flaws, it's still one of my favorite sci-fi movies. Barring that, stupid comedies like Death Becomes Her or Romi and Michelle's High School reunion are amazing. I'm usually up for any kind of movie though I've spent a long time in my own little bubble and missed out on a lot of classic movies. If you have a suggestion I'd be happy to hear it!
Of course, I'm always up for a musical.

As for TV shows, I've been watching old seasons on Netflix a lot recently. 30 Rock, Bones, Dollhouse, Once Upon a Time, Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, Supernatural, and Buffy were great. Dr. Who is beyond amazing. I don't have cable so that's what I'm stuck with. I don't really feel like I'm missing out though, I don't have time or a consistent schedule to get into a current show. I'm watching Orange is the New Black on Netflix right now and I have no idea why it took me so long to start it. It's amazing.

Woodkid is by far my favorite musician at the moment, as well as Regina Spektor. I really used to enjoy artsy-depressing music like Aimee Mann, but that's not really who I am anymore.
I'll listen to anything, but it takes a lot for a song or artist to really jump out at me.
As for my absolute favorite song at the moment:

My favorite food is bees. I could eat bees for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The six things I could never do without
I don't think I could live without some kind of music. It's powerful the way it can make you feel.
Same goes for reading. I read at least ten pages a day. I can't sleep at night without reading a little before I go to bed. Makes for some interesting dreams...
My friends mean more to me than life itself. Once I let someone in, I'm fiercely loyal to them.
The constant moral support of my family helps me more than anything else. I went through a period without seeing any of them and it almost killed me. I owe so much to my parents, and my brother is pretty much the most awesome person I know.
I can't really think of anything else I need, aside from the basics. If I have that, the rest is just stuff. Burn it all, I'll survive. I have before.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
You know that thing where a black person will make a joke about a white person not seasoning their food and a white person will get SUPER OFFENDED and start complaining about reverse racism and SJ double-eews and then make a joke about killing black people but when people get offended they'll complain about the stupid PC culture we all live in and compare it to the joke about seasoning as if they're exactly the same kind of joke?

Don't do that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking ridiculously overpriced craft beers. Since I've lost weight, I've become a serious lightweight when it comes to drinking. I don't drink too often but lately three beers does me in. It makes me a cheap date at least haha.
I prefer having a small group of friends over for board games and cheesy movies (Bibleman, anyone?) over a night out at the club or whatnot. Going out can be fun and all but a few real friends can be more fun than a ton of strangers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is the first part of a profile I'll read. I give major bonus points if someone puts something either creative or raunchy here.
If you put something in this section, you are 1000% more likely to get messages and find true love. If you're not looking for true love, you'll at least find true sex.
I suppose I should put something racy here, let's see... Did you know that gingers have MASSIVE penises? It's a scientific fact that I definitely didn't just make up right now!
I dare you to ask me a question. Anything. Nothing is off limits.
You should message me if
I'm always up for chatting with new friends, so don't be afraid to message me!
Things have been really looking up for me lately, and I plan to keep improving myself. I'd like to find someone with the same kind of attitude. You don't have to have everything figured out and be completely set in your life, but I'd like someone who has goals and plans for the future.
If you think we'd get along at all, let me know. I'd love to hear from you, don't be shy!
