If I have to describe myself, I'm going to go with "avid adventurer slash closet-nerd". I love travel. I love hands on and outdoorsy stuff- I hike/climb and backpack, camp/hammock, snowboard, skydive, play with guns, box, drink fine beer and finer scotch, can change my own tires and oil, build shelves, and know how to kill a man with my bare hands.
I can also bake. I read a lot of books (more so than I watch TV, at least) have a solid grasp of global events and politics, can sink hundreds of hours into RPGs without regret, dates will at some point almost assuredly involve mario kart, and I dream of finally making it to SDCC some day.
I work a lot. It takes up the majority of my time- long, sometimes erratic hours, travel frequently, never know whats going to happen next week, and basically live on-call. BUT, it's rewarding and makes a positive impact (I hope), I get to do a lot of cool stuff, and there's nothing I'd rather be doing... except maybe eating. I really like eating too.
That said, I don't want to be one of those guys who's life is entirely consumed by work. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how this goes) since I never quiet mastered that LA socialite lifestyle, here I am trolling for dates online. What's the worst that could happen?
I read a lot more than I do any movie or tv watching. I've been averaging a good 20 books a year for a few years now. Mostly classics (like, classics classics- I'm talking Homer and Dante and Machiavelli), sci-fi, and military/intelligence related fic and non-fic, with some fantasy and batman graphic novels thrown in for funsies, but my all time favorite is Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
I cook A LOT. I can also mix up a pretty decent drink. I will feed you, and I will probably also get you drunk at some point. Exotic/Foreign foods are a norm- I will try pretty much anything at least once, and twice if you insist I got a bad serving the first time. I'm also pretty down with pizza.
