My self-summary
First, a few quotes I live by:

"Only the shallow know themselves." - Oscar Wilde

"Except for me and you love, everyone's the same." - Rise Against

"..." - Charlie Chaplin

I'm motivated and adventurous, and despite being a software engineer by profession, I'm always hoping to be more of an artist at heart. That's why I'm working on my own software company in my spare time and take up creative hobbies. One of these is the novel I'm trying to write and the other is the rock album I'm going to record.

I love adventures, so it would be great to meet a good travel buddy--someone to explore more of Europe or South America with or to ditch the city for a long summer weekend here and there. I want to find someone I can act silly/borderline stupid with... someone willing to roam about the MET with me among the highbrow crowd of the English Jewels section, talking about how "we ain't leavin' here empty handed." I play guitar and I'm into live music, especially folk/alternative/rock concerts. I like nights in and nights out, and nights that don't go according to plan. I'm fun and active and easygoing and love it when friends get together and play some cheesy game like charades because it feels like we're all kids again.

PS. no animals/vegans were harmed in the making of this self summary.
What I’m doing with my life
Advancing my career; beach in the summer, skiing in the winter; writing/composing when inspired; friends, family, trying to find the right girl... in a word... chillin'
I’m really good at
The first time I went to a shooting range (the only time I went to a shooting range), I shot either dead bulls-eye, or damn near it. When i die i'm donating my brain to science.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Way too many to list, but here's a preview. Pulp fiction, crash, taken, gladiator, troy, lord of the rings, wedding crashers-style comedies, the big lebowski. Books! Way too many. All the classics... I love classics (I'm not uptight, I'm old fashioned... call me what you will, but they don't write like they used to). Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Nabokov, Hardy, Dickens, Melville, Kafka, Tolkien, Fitzgerald, Vonnegut, Hemingway (eh, not so sure about this one). Music! Mostly rock/alternative. I still really enjoy the old 90s grunge (I can't believe I'm calling it 'old'), and the 00's bands, but lots of newer stuff as well. Plus, of course, there's always the beatles and stones and bob dylan and all that older good stuff. Shows: Californication, Game of thrones, family guy, lost, mad men, colbert report, john stewart, million dollar listing, millionaire matchmaker (I know, this one should go under the most private thing I'm willing to admit section). My favorite food?? ... I don't have a favorite cuisine. I like really well prepared food from almost any type of kitchen.
The six things I could never do without
I like to break rules so I'm not sticking to 6 things...

I love the outdoors, the beach, and the naturally beautiful parts of the world. The history of foreign places fascinates me. I love a cozy ambiance, and the architecture of old cities. I'll read the economist, watch both cnn and fox news for the entertainment, but also browse the new yorker for its short stories. My favorite time of year is the spring/summer time, because its nice and warm and I get to escape from the city to a lake or a beach or a campfire somewhere. In the winter I love to ski and need to find a way to do it more often. Airports make me nostalgic and road trips remind me of why the people riding with me are my closest friends. Buying more guitars than I could use was an old weakness of mine. I've kicked that habit now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
You. Where the hell are you right now?
On a typical Friday night I am
Either rescuing children from burning buildings, diving into freezing waters to save drowning puppies, bandaging up wounded birds mid sky dive, somalian-pirating the somalian pirates and donating the loot to orphans, spoonfeeding starving artists raw veggies, or rescuing princesses on horseback, clad in my shiny fubu armor.
You should message me if
Just do it
