A bit about myself
-I am THE night owl. It's not that I want to stay up until 4 a.m., it's that my body isn't giving me another option.
-I'm a fan of comedians, so beware of my horribly dull wit.
-My homeland is the internet and sarcasm is my first language.
-I like philosophy and worldly truths. It's cool to learn the secrets of the universe, you know?
-I swear in person. A lot. I can usually avoid it when it's absolutely necessary, but when I'm relaxed and with good company I can sound more like Jay than Silent Bob.
-I share my birthday with my favorite author. Guess right and I'll give you a cookie. :)
-I'm a geek. Not the cool, modern geek thing that's going around now. I like video games, anime, and can play 4 non pop instruments. I like the arts, I was picked on in school and I wasn't popular, at least in a good way. Can't handle that? That's cool, there's plenty of other guys on the site. Still here? Rather impressed that someone actually read the damn thing.
Now that that's out of the way, I'd say the best way to describe myself is an old soul lost in modern times. I tend to stay quiet unless I bring up conversation myself, or know a lot about the subject matter. I'm kind of a relaxed individual, but I do have some direction and know where I want to go in life.
Food for thought- Something to keep my brain busy so it doesn't try to destroy the world.
Music- It's brought me over to the arts, for better or for worse.
Illusion- for without it we cannot think of a better reality, let alone create one
Corn Dogs-Seriously, who doesn't love those?
Humor- Nothing has given me as much mirth and vicariously given me insight to another's perspective.
You look for the good in people.
You look for the opportunity in your life.
And you actually can have a conversation. I'm fine sending the first message and all, but if I'm only getting 1-4 word responses, I'm just going to get bored and assume you don't care or aren't interested. Rather just save us both time.
Oh, and it helps if you have a sense of humor.
