My self-summary
I am professionally trained as a librarian (that's true, but still sort of a joke), but my passion is for creative projects, which mostly concerns my writing at the moment (but music, visual art, and even acting are all in there somewhere). I am open to meeting all sorts of new people, and we can just figure out as we go what categories to put each other into.

I'm poly, I guess. At least that's what my poly meet-up group tells me, haha. Well, I am in one long-term relationship, which is great, but I have so many interests, find so many things interesting, and have so much worth sharing that it makes sense to me to date more than one person. I have been in several, year-plus romantic relationships while maintaining a constant one with a singular partner. Not everyone is built for that, though I'm also not against keeping things simple/casual. I'm open to whatever possibilities work for both me and prospective dating partners.

I like outdoor activities, whether that's hiking, riding my bike just to explore, playing sports/running, chilling at the beach, or relaxing in a hammock. The previous sentence depends upon the relative humidity and inherent bugginess of the area, however. I try to avoid mosquito-infested quagmires.

I would say I'm a good listener and a great friend -- very loyal, and genuinely enjoy lending a helping hand when I can. I am pretty open to discussion topics, and while my conversational boldness may surprise some, I'm not intentionally trying to offend anyone. I am one of three brothers, all with philosophy backgrounds, so what may sound like an actual argument to others may only be a friendly "discussion" from my perspective.

Oh, I also really like playing poker, so if anyone wants to invite me to a game, I'd be grateful :) That's something I've missed since leaving Florida.
What I’m doing with my life
I am usually working on several creative projects, including fantasy novels. There will always be more to be done. I have participated in NaNoWriMo for four years now, and sincerely plan on publishing something in 2015.
I work at the public library and enjoy my job tremendously -- well, most of the time.
I'm trying to seize life and squeeze all the juicy goodness out of it, basically. I like to vary my physical actvity -- I play in different sports leagues throughout the year, and usually incorporate running in their somewhere.
I’m really good at
Writing, rapping (yes, seriously), sports that require a ball, poker, listening and giving objective advice, using my hands, and most things that require strategy or analytical skills.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sexy-smooth jazz voice, haha. I don't know, that I'm a human? How do I answer a question about other peoples' perceptions unless they've told me? It's not like I'm asking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too...much...information to process. I'm only half-trying to cop-out here. This seems like very ephemeral knowledge, and who really needs to read a long list of things other people have done to get to know me better? I will just say I enjoy a wide variety of quality work. The artist in me can appreciate things that I wouldn't otherwise voluntarily associate with. Oh, and I almost never have time to watch TV -- that could be relevant.
Six things I could never do without
Dr. Pepper (currently under evaluation, trying out Dr. Pepper 10 for a healthier alternative),
My thumb drive,
Human touch,
Competitive outlet,
Time to myself,
Creative stimulation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What all the characters in my head are going to do once they get put down on (figurative) paper. And yes, I'm talking about my writing, not a mental condition.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relishing that the weekend is here. Unless I have to work that weekend, which is one-third of the time. I will most likely be chilling and planning for what adventure I'm going to undertake on Saturday, though I do get out on a date every once-in-a-while.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Once, when making out with a girl, she started sucking on my tongue so hard that it dislocated (well became unhinged, popped loose, whatever the technical term that applies). She said she just got too excited, but that's still bad technique. I couldn't talk normally for a week. Please don't ever do that. Not just to me but to anyone.
You should message me if
You'd like to get to know me better, and you're capable of keeping your profile up for at least 4 days. I don't get annoyed easily, but it's a slight bother to invest time getting to know someone only to have them instantly (and unexpectedly) vanish back into the cybermist.
The two of us
