My self-summary
I’m a big believer in self improvement. Not in a self help book of the week sort of way, but in a constantly learning, growing and developing sort of way. I believe that no matter how good we are none of us are perfect. We can all be a little stronger, kinder, smarter, and wiser. I enjoy the feeling of waking up each morning, working to make myself better than I was yesterday.

I am a bit of a closet nerd. For example… I like sci-fi. Even though I don’t actively collect comic books any more I do love super heroes. I like Star Trek but I wouldn’t call myself a trekie. Have I scared you off yet? No? Good :)

I like to try new things. Recently I’ve been taking a trapeze class, but lately there have been scheduling conflicts. In the meantime I've been taking a Parkour class. (If you’ve never heard of it check it out on YouTube, it’s pretty cool.) It's the most fun I have all week. I haven’t given up on the trapeze though, maybe this winter.

I am a big movie lover. Old movies, new movies, action, drama, scary movies, funny movies, the occasional chick flick, going to the theater, chillin’ on the couch, it’s all good. But I like to get out and be active too. Camping, white water rafting, going for a run, working out, museums, swing dancing, playing Rock Band with friends, playing pool. I’m up for just about anything.

I am Charming, Fun-Loving, and Intelligent
What I’m doing with my life
I am a MasterTrainer at 24 Hour Fitness. I love my job but I don't want to be doing it five years from now. Last November I made a hard decision and moved back in with my parents so that I could go to school full time. I am not exactly proud of this but it is what I have to do to get my life moving in a direction that I want it to go. I still work full time. If you don't want to date a guy who lives with his parents then I completely understand, but if you've read my profile and think that I'm otherwise pretty cool, if you understand that it's a temporary means to an end then I'd love to meet you. Modesty aside, I think that I'm worth it.

****** Update *********
I met with the academic advisor for my dept. recently. If all goes according to plan I have 1 year to go until I have my degree. Yayyyy!!! So the end is in sight. :D
I’m really good at
I seem to have an ability for recalling random trivia and information at random times, this can be either really cool or really annoying (or so I am told). I am also really good at killing spiders, Juggling, sewing, drawing, painting, camping, whistling, swing dancing (east coast & Lindy Hop), listening
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite authors include Orson Scott Card, Robert A. Heinline, Issac Asimov, James Clavel, Ray Bradbury.

I love all good movies, too many to list here, but as long as you promise not to consider it to be an inclusive list I will give SOME of my favorites. Princess Bride, Forest Gump, V for Vendetta, Usual Suspects, The Majestic, 300, What Dreams May Come, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Fight Club, The curious case of Benjamin Button, The Dark Knight, Young Frankenstein, The Hangover

My music tastes are pretty eclectic. If it's good I'll give it a listen. But the over simplified answer is that my car radio is usually tuned to classic rock.

I am reading a book at the suggestion of my professional mentor called "The Paleo Diet Solution" By Robb Wolf. Basically You eat like a cave man. If a cave man wouldn't recognize it then you don't eat it. It is the simplest, least neurotic way to eat healthy and be healthy. That said I REALLY enjoy my weekly cheat meal. Usually pizza, or the ocasional chocolate chip cookie. Yumm!
The six things I could never do without
It's been my experience that things that you could NEVER do with out are merely something that you have never HAD to go with out before. The Human spirit is incredibly resiliant. We find a way, we adapt and we move on. So I take comfort in the thought that short of food air and water that I could go without just about anything and if I had to I would be stronger for the experience.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I recently read the book "The Secret". It deals a lot about exercising control over your own thoughts. That the things that you think about have a direct influence on the things that come into your life. So I make it a point to try to spend my time and energy thinking about the things I want. Happiness, succsess, true love, ect.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a terrible first date (okay maybe "terrible" is a bit strong of a word but it does take me a while to open up). Maybe it's just because I haven't met the right one but I am not much of a foot sweeper off'er. However once I get to know you and you me, I can be a great boyfriend.
You should message me if
She had blue skin
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so di she.
They searched for blue
heir whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.
