My self-summary
I'm the kind of guy who likes to avoid drama. Life's more fun as a sit-com, anyways.

I'm nerdy and prefer to stay inside and watching a movie with friends. Going out can be enjoyable but then I need a recharge. Classic introvert.

Baseball is big with me, especially the Texas Rangers. I'll even listen to the games on the radio if I can't get to a TV for the game. I love football, too, but it's second place to me.

I like to game (not obsessive, though). Have a PC that I put together myself. It's a hobby and doesn't consume my life.

My family isn't a college type of family so I went straight into the workforce. It wasn't until I was 25 that I finally took the scary first step and started working my way towards a Computer Engineering degree that I'm about halfway through right now. I'm excited as I could be the first in my family with a Bachelor's degree.
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly studying for class and working.

Throughout the year I also like to participate in local sports leagues. Even sports that I'm not good at, I just love competition. I currently run a Softball team and an Intramural team that plays all kinds of sports.

Been taking a guitar class. Always wanted to learn but I kept quitting. I think all I needed was another person teaching me (instead of teaching myself), someone who I could ask questions and get direct answers.
I’m really good at
Shuffleboard. Even won a few small tournaments. I just kinda picked it up real quick.

Too bad I couldn't pick up a major sport like Baseball that quickly. I'd be getting millions instead of hundreds.

Also, math. Doesn't mean that tests aren't still hard for me, but I don't tend to have to study as long as my classmates.

Of course that's becoming less and less the case the further along I go at college. They really work you for that Engineering degree.
The first things people usually notice about me
My red hair. It's like a flashing beacon just begging for people to rub it. I hated it as a kid. It seemed like the only thing it did was attract bullies and old women (who always have "a grandkid with hair just like that"). Now it doesn't bother me anymore.

Unfortunately, I've started suffering from a receding hairline so I tend to shave it all off before it becomes too noticeable. Won't lie, it feels great.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Nothing stands out to me right now. Sci-Fi is what I usually go for.

I read manga, too. Cross Game is one of my favorites.

Movies: 'Maverick' is my favorite movie of all time. I prefer comedies and action. Not a fan of horror flicks.

Shows: Mythbusters, documentaries, Discovery channel, anime, sports, etc.

Music: I love Rock and Metal. I don't worry about sub-genres too much as long as it sounds good.

I can listen to Country, too. Grew up on it, after all.

Food: Tex-Mex. Especially Queso Dip. I'm not too picky with my food overall, but I'll rarely eat seafood (and never shrimp). You also won't catch me eating food that's staring back at me.
The six things I could never do without
Friends and family. My computer. My dog. Baseball. My phone. My legs?

I could honestly do without some of this stuff (legs are overrated).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How things work.

I love watching videos of factory robots at work. It's mesmerizing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either playing with my friend in Houston online (we used to live together as roommates and have known each other since we were almost teenagers) or hanging out with local friends.

If I do go out, it's mostly on Saturday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I suffer from thalassophobia. I'm afraid of being in lakes, ponds, the ocean, etc. Pools are fine, so it's not a fear of being in water. Just giant, murky water where man is not welcome. I could never be a diver.

It's so bad that being in the ocean on some video games will cause me to freak out. Yet Finding Nemo doesn't trigger it...
You should message me if
If you're interested. I have no qualms with women making the first move. In fact, it's kind of a turn-on when a girl knows what she wants and goes for it.
