My self-summary
I am a Junior going on Senior Computer Science major, very passionate about the field that I am going into. I am currently working on a few side projects in C to further my understanding and to build my resume. In fact, I'd say the day feels incomplete if I haven't learned at least something new, even if it isn't related to my field.

I enjoy gaming, but I wouldn't necessarily call myself a gamer, just as I enjoy philosophical debates and don't consider myself a philosopher; it's purely a hobby of mine. (Although, while I do program, I do consider myself a programmer, so there's that). I play old school games as well as new/current age games, from Old School D&D games like Baldur's Gate to First Person Shooters like Payday 2, to even MMORPGs like Guild Wars 2.

There are quite a few other things about myself I can tell, but if you wish to know more, feel free to ask.

I'm looking for a friendship, preferably with someone in my major and that shares my interests, someone I can learn from and hopefully, although considering how inexperienced I am, I doubt it but can learn from me as well. Dating isn't a primary objective, but if it just so happens to come to that, so be it.
What I’m doing with my life
Junior at a Unviersity, majoring in Computer Science, going for a minor concentration in Mathematics.
I’m really good at
Programming in C and Java. I wouldn't say "really good" but I'm not "really bad" and better than "bad", so I'll have to say decent.

I'd also like to say math, with all of the math classes I've had to take, but I haven't really taken the time to further my knowledge of mathematics any where near as I did with programming, although I want a minor concentration in math.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suppose I come off as awkward, with all honesty. I have a bit of a speech impediment, but I've far gotten over it, but I do require a bit of time to warm up to someone. I also stare into space a lot as that's where my mind wanders, don't take it as disrespect if my eyes wander during a conversation. I'm also rather quiet, but if I warm up to you enough I will definitely speak my mind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I haven't read any novels in a while, but my all time favorites were the Eragon and Harry Potter series. Both are the epitome of the fantasy genre, and I wish all fantasy books are just as good, although I haven't read much. Feel free to recommend me some.

Movies: Haven't watch much of any in a long time, but do old Disney and Pixar movies count? Sometimes I re-watch some old shows I've seen from childhood, for nostalgia purposes, but it surprises me at just how amazingly interesting, and strangely relevant they are.

Shows: Walking Dead and Breaking Bad. Two really amazing shows, but I don't have much time for shows at all. I do watch some anime though, but I'm no otaku, but I can appreciate a good one every now and then.

Music: Now a days, mostly rap music, but more old school rap or at least conscious rap. These vary greatly, but they include and are not limited to: Common, Mobb Deep, Guru (from Gangstarr), KRS-ONE, Masta Ace (also EMC crew), Nas, AZ, Rakim (after Erik B.), De La Soul, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah, etc.

I also used to listen to some metal, which I can somewhat still appreciate, although I've forgotten most bands I used to listen to. Mostly Thrash and Death metal.

Food: Food is food I suppose, anything good is good.
Six things I could never do without
1. Computers {
Now the reason this is bracketed is because so many things count as computers now a days its impossible to wrap up everything I count as things I can't go without. So I'll make a sublist.

A. Mobile Phones, literally knowledgebases, entertainment centers and telecommunications and navigations all in one, what couldn't you live without?

B. Desktop + Laptop computers, for gaming, programming, multimedia, etc.

Short list.


2. Music. Music is everything, next to technology to me. Music keeps me going day to monotonous day, and finding a new tune to jam to keeps my spirits up. Can't imagine life, nor could anyone I imagine, life without music (except for people whom are deaf I suppose).

3. Programming. It's my passion, I don't know what I'd be doing if I never started Computer Science.

4. Math. Without math there would be no sciences, and worst of all, no programming. While I may not be overly interested in math, I 100% appreciate the importance of mathematics.

5. Family. I don't know what I would do without my family. My mother supported me from birth up to now, and I hope she stays to support me for a long while. I don't mean financial support, although that's nice too, I mean emotional support. My grand parents are also very nice to have around, but I'm come to the understanding that they won't be around for much longer for a long time.

6. Me. Narcissistic right? Here's the reason? I could never exist without myself, so that's something I can't really go without. This is essentially a filler really, kind of listed everything.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Programming. Programming is 50% thought, logic and planning I've found, 25% documentation (and I don't mean sparse comments, I mean documenting 50 - 100 function-long libraries.), 20% testing (Unit Testing bugs) and 5% actual programming (that doesn't need testing. Testing + programming take up about 25% total).

So, I'm mostly thinking about how to approach my current problem and solve it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either programming, gaming, a bit of both, or maybe taking a walk around the campus. I'm a loner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not smart as I'd like to be. I love the idea of being the lone wolf developer that gets everything done on his own without needing a full team to stuff done.. but truth is, I can't do it all. I originally thought I was hot shit, pardon the language, I thought I could do it all and if you did it differently you were wrong or it wasn't as good as my own solutions.

I've matured since then. So that's what I'm willing to admit, I'm an idiot at times, and I most likely won't be anywhere near as good as the prodigies that have a full-fledged portfolio at the age of 16, and that really kills me at times, but I accept that fact.
You should message me if
If you're interested in talking, don't be shy. I don't care much for looks as I'm not really the best looking guy myself, nor do I care too much for intellect as I'm not the most intelligent person myself either (to my dismay), as long as you're interested, even if not the most interesting, message me.
The two of us
