My self-summary
I am a nice person. In fact, I would say I am probably too nice for my own good. I am a very trusting, caring person as well. I have it in my heart to forgive most things. I have been wronged (severly in some cases) in the past, but I have forgiven and moved on.
I have a good (albeit quite strange at times) sense of humor, and I hardly take myself seriously. I don't have a ton of friends, but I do have at least four really good, close friends, which I feel quite lucky to have. Outside of that, I have a larger group of friends, but they aren't as close as those four.
I like reading, writing, playing video games, watching TV and movies, playing some casual sports with friends (basketball, baseball, football, that kind of stuff), walking, drawing (kind of), and I do enjoy some drinks every so often. Occasionally, if I can get my hands on one, I will smoke a cigar, but that is very seldom. I don't touch cigarettes or any sort of drug.
I would consider myself a bit of a nerd. I LOOOOOVE MST3K (I think it basically goes without saying that enjoying the show lends some nerd cred). In fact I own three MST3K catchphrase T-shirts. I enjoy Monty Python's Flying Circus and their three movies. I can't recite Holy Grail by heart though.
After having lived on my own for a little over 2 years, I am back living with my parents. It was more of a situation that I had no control over, and my only choice was moving back in with my folks. But I should be out on my own again by Feb./March 2010. I do have a full time job that pays decently. I like and get along with just about all my coworkers (a few are good friends). I am a very easy person to get along with. Oh yeah, I am 22.
I am not really an adventurous person. Bars and clubs and that kind of stuff really aren't my thing. I still go out to bars sometimes, but I think clubs would be out of the question (I feel I am just too awkward there). I am quite a shy person. Once I get to know you, I will start talking (or if I'm drunk). I am just looking for someone to have fun with and spend time with. I really enjoy the feeling I get from making people happy and caring for people. I enjoy the reverse feeling too (being made happy and felt cared-for, that is). I feel like I have a lot to offer. I find myself now about five months removed from an almost eleven month relationship. I learned a lot from it that I can use going forward.
Also, a word on my religious and political views. I am an atheist, so if that would be a problem, I would look elsewhere. As far as politics, I subscribe to a few conservative views and a few liberal ones. Also some middle-of-the-road. I would say independent.

I am Thirsty, Hungry, and Awesome
What I’m doing with my life
I have no idea at the moment. I am too young to pin all that stuff down yet. I do know that school is really not an option, at least right now. I think it would be a huge waste of my money and time. In the future, perhaps that will change. I am decent at writing. I suppose in a perfect world that's what I would do. Right now I'm just going with the flow.
I’m really good at
As stated above, I can write. I also have a pretty good vernacular. I consider myself a very good listener. I can try to give advice, but I don't have a ton of life experience so I'm not great at it. I can make people laugh too (I have a fairly strange sense of humor I suppose. I always love making fun of myself too). And of course I am really good at growing my beard. I usually keep it in check though. Oh, I enjoy bowling. I used to go regularly, but that has since stopped. I am slightly better than a casual bowler I guess (my highest score I think is a 216).
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard, definitely (well only when it gets tremendously long and Charles-Manson looking - but it's nice and trimmed now). Lots of people in the past have told me I have pretty eyes. Also I have had a few different girls tell me they were jealous of my eyelashes. They are pretty long I guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Some of my favorite bands are: Metallica, Tiamat, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains, Pink Floyd, White Zombie, and Type O Negative. I love heavy metal. I also enjoy classic rock, some new hard rock, some industrial, and a little bit of rap (not much, but I love Jedi Mind Tricks. Ill Bill is another good one).
Movies: Firstly, Inglorious Basterds RULED! I love Tarantino! I also love horror movies (even campy, B-movie ones - Sleepaway Camp I, II, and III). I love the Evil Dead series. I also enjoy comedies. But smart ones, basically (Airplane!, I Love You Man, The 40 Year Old Virgin, MST3K: The Movie, Space Balls). I recently watched Hot Rod and LOVED IT!
Books: Stephen King is my favorite author (The Stand and Dark Tower series). I really enjoy Clive Barker (Coldheart Canyon and Books of Blood) and George Orwell. Lucifer's Hammer, Atlas Shrugged, and Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell are some other books I love.
Food: I am incredibly picky. Pizza, burgers, steak, subs and sandwiches. Nothing fancy or exotic.
Six things I could never do without
A sense of humor. That is very important
And by proxy, liquids
Probably my iPod - I need my 4,800+ songs.
Family - basically my immediate family: mom, dad, and sister
Friends - I have a small circle of close friends. They are all great people.
Not an incredibly exciting list, but that's what's important to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I do think about my past a lot. Some good things, but more bad. I tend to dwell on things, and that is certainly my biggest flaw. I hate the fact that I live in the past too much. However I am starting to get over that a bit. I do think about the future at times as well, although usually like the immediate future, like my weekend or some upcoming event. Although now I find myself thinking of three-or-so months into the future when I can move back out and into my own apartment again. Sometimes I will just think about some hilarious line from Mystery Science Theater 3000/The Simpsons/Futurama etc. and just laugh out loud to myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes hanging out with friends, sometimes just hanging out by myself, doing stuff like playing video games, maybe reading, watching TV. Not terribly wild or crazy, really.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very inexperienced (starting to gain some though) and I am FAR more emotional than I ever would have thought. I am actually one of the most emotional people I know, but I would guess most people don't really know it.
You should message me if
Well, I suppose if you like anything you read here, or like the pictures. If you love MST3K you should totally message me. If you are laid back, mellow, likes sometimes going out or sometimes just staying in, I guess that kind of stuff. I am hardly a crazy or wild person, so if you don't like that kind of stuff, that's a start. Mainly if you like being cared for and like feeling like someone is really there for you. And if you like being around nice people. That's about it. If you like beards that certainly helps.
The two of us
