I would, however, like to get out more often—in good company, of course. (Although, good company seems very difficult to find in this seemingly boring, trashy, crime-ridden, drug-infested place crawling with parasitic losers, unfortunately.)

Shortly after moving in, one of my best friends came to visit. Later that night, we stood outside of my house half-naked (it was a warm summer night), gazing at the moon, stars and planets in the sky. I saw at least 5 shooting stars within about 10-15 minutes; my friend missed all of them, as they occurred while the telescope was being setup or repositioned. That, for me, was a remarkable experience.

I'm moderately good at many things, and really good at some; an incomplete (and somewhat contradictory) list of these includes:
being creative (artistically, musically, literary and culinary inclined); improvising; thinking rationally; over-analyzing everything; maintaining my sanity; obsessive-compulsiveness; relaxation; punctuality; tardiness; being eclectic; easily amused; humor; understanding; DIY projects; decoration; interior design; recognizing potential;
... I will add more eventually.
Although I enjoy reading various types of literature, my favorite poetry, short stories, novels & other compositions of choice are usually of the macabre sort, the world's dark and/or colorful history, science, mythology, or otherworldly tales—and, of course, frequently wandering the labyrinthine corridors of that thing called 'Wikipedia'.

e.g. _-my YouTube playlists-_ (I'm still adding songs and editing playlists, but you'll get a general idea)
I will cook or eat almost anything—meat, fish, veggies, fruit, grains, sugar, doesn't matter as long as it's good—but Sushi, Italian and Chinese are my faves

Dating isn't my main priority, but I'm open to it if there's a mutual attraction between us . . . I'm really just looking for companionship with others who are somewhat similar to myself. If something more comes out of it, great—if not, hopefully our friendship will be worthwhile regardless.
