My self-summary
Hi. My name is Ryan and I spend a lot of time smiling or trying to make other people smile. I go by many descriptions: Entertainer, Listener, Counselor, Verbal Sparring Partner, etc. I like being there for people and I'm looking for someone to return the favor :)

Oh, and apparently I'm an INFP.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I'm working in Customer Services while I look into graduate programs for music education. I hope to be a High School choir director in the coming years and anything else musical that I can get my hands on would be a plus.
I’m really good at
Getting excited about things. I tend to geek out about the things I love......like an excessive amount of geeking. I can't really help it. I love the things I love and I have trouble holding it in when I'm really excited. I am also an excellent person to see a movie with, as my excitement seems to be contagious or, at the very least, funny. I love telling people stories. I listen very well and love helping others with their problems if they ask for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm gonna go with my smile. I've usually got a smile on my face about something or another that happens to be running about my mind. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: There are a LOT of them, but I'm mostly into fantasy. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson, A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, One Piece by Eichiro Oda, just to name a few.

Movies: I have no real niche when it comes to genre, but some of my favorites are The Dark Knight, Inception, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Pulp Fiction, Jet Li's Fearless, The Matrix, Memento, The Illusionist, The Prestige, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Good Will Hunting, and many others.

Shows: Breaking Bad, The Wire, Dexter, Battlestar Galactica (although I haven't seen it in a while), Avatar: TLA and LOK, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Merlin, Fullmetal Alchemist, Trigun and much more.

Music: By far the most eclectic of my interests. Artists include John Legend, Three Days Grace, Killswitch Engage, Eminem, Skrillex, Bassnectar, Breaking Benjamin, Luther Vandross, Maxwell, Floetry, Hoobastank, Jeremy Soule, and a lot more.

Food: I can't really call favorites on this one. I'm allergic to onions and Coconut, I'm lactose intolerent, I don't particularly like spicy food. Besides that, I'd be willing to try it.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm usually retelling experiences in my mind like a story, comparing my favorite characters to each other, debating the pros and cons of silly decisions, or hopping from mental tangent to mental tangent as I make my way wherever I'm going.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually hanging out with friends having a drink and doing geeky things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When it comes to talking to ones self, people say that your only crazy if you start answering yourself. I hit this stage when I was in first grade, and most of the time when it happens it's a verbal response :)
