My self-summary
Hey, I'm Orion. I've never been very good at writing these self summary type things, but what the hell, let's write one anyways. I was born and raised in the Oregon country and now I'm going to school at Reed in Portland. I have an insane amount of work, but I always find time to aimlessly surf the internet and play Pokemon on my phone, so things balance out. I'm a huge music nerd; I could talk for way too long about a single band or album if someone wants to discuss it with me. I'm a nerd about plenty of other things too, but music is my current obsession. Good friends are some of the most important parts of my life; I couldn't have made it this far without them. The thing that depresses me more than anything else is the knowledge that I'll never get to see other worlds or watch humanity journey into the unknown. Above everything though, I try not to take myself too seriously. In the end, we're all just people living on a rock floating through space, and we might as well enjoy the ride while we're here.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying not to drown in schoolwork on my way to finishing a degree. When I do get time off, I usually spend it playing video games or teaching myself guitar. I haven't been playing very long, but I've fallen in love with the instrument and learning it has come incredibly quickly. With any luck, I'll sound halfway decent before too long.
I’m really good at
I've never really been great at any one thing. I'm more of a jack-of-all-trades; good at a couple of things, but not great at any. I can write a good story, but I'm too lazy to write one unless it's required. I can play a pretty song on a guitar, but I can't freestyle and jam with people who actually understand music. I can project my voice and memorize lines, but I'm only a good actor when compared to people with no experience. I diversify; it's more fun than focusing on one talent.
The first things people usually notice about me
The hair I guess. It's kinda hard to miss since it goes all over the place. Plus I've got some natural blonde streaks that just came out recently, I suppose that's somewhat distinctive. I used to hate how curly and unruly it is, but I've grown to like it.

Also, one of my eyes is partially brown (they're mostly blue.) People sometimes notice that when they meet me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Any one of these categories could take up an entire page of text. For brevity's sake, I'll try to keep it to a short list for each.

Books: Snow Crash, 1984, Watchmen, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, A Song of Ice and Fire, Dune, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, World War Z, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and most everything by Stephen King.

Movies: Fight Club, Shawn of the Dead, Watchmen, The Incredibles, It's a Wonderful Life, Dr. Strangelove, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, The Producers, Star Wars, The Evil Dead, Lord of the Rings, and anything by Quentin Tarantino.

Shows: Breaking Bad, Dexter, Futurama, Arrested Development, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Flight of the Conchords, Archer, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Adventure Time, and The Walking Dead to name a few.

Music: Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Gorillaz, The White Stripes, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Daft Punk, Justice, The Black Keys, ELO, Rush, Tool, Foo Fighters, Brian Setzer, Jimi Hendrix, Yes and a helluva lot more.

Food: I'm a big fan of a well cooked steak, but I'd say my favorite food is seafood. Crab, lobster, oysters, clams, shrimp, fish, sushi, it's all good.
Six things I could never do without
My guitar, my music collection, a good book, a pencil and paper, a quiet place to think, and someone to talk about it all with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Which of my favorite things is truly the #1 favorite. I have an odd predilection with ranking and categorizing the things I love, particularly music. Keeps my thoughts busy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Partying / imbibing various intoxicants with friends if I'm lucky.
Chilling, gaming or interneting alone if I'm not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm the shyest person I know.
You should message me if
You'd like to have an interesting, in-depth conversation about whatever.
The two of us
