I was born in the land of the red river and I grew up here by the bay of the blue crab.
If you can guess which two states I'm referring to in the last sentence then we might just hit it off.
I come from a long line of smart asses dating back to possibly William the Conqueror. Dry wit, sarcasm, and irony are my bread and butter with wordplay as a nice desert. Writers block is a condition I have to fight off every time I try to take up a pen, to say nothing of attention deficit...oh by the way have you heard of TV Tropes?
I have been fighting the demons of social anxiety and depression for most of my life. This profile is just one way I try to reach out and make friends or possibly more.
Writing a short story that will be a part of a greater fantastic legendarium that will rival Tolkien and Martin. Writing a surreal post-apocalyptic epic play. Planning an urban fantasy graphic novel series that I may just draw AND write. Playing Pathfinder on weekends.
Not trying to brag, but I'm also good at cooking. I mean I'm not a world class chef or anything but I can make some pretty delicious scrambled eggs. Again not trying to brag...
...okay maybe I'm bragging a little. It's a dating profile, I'm supposed to sell myself a little.
Personality Wise: A lot of people say I'm smart, friendly, but quiet. I'd have to agree with the quiet part, but I have no clue where they get smart and friendly from.
Also that I'm a lot more outgoing when I'm-...I don't want to say "drunk", because I don't drink that often and I usually limit myself to two glasses when I do. So how about "less sober"? Yeah, that works.
Although, I guess that technically isn't something people have first noticed about me. However, it would be for people who first meet while I am less sober.
Look I guess it's safe to say that I'm just...different from most people. That's made it hard to connect with others but I have to try.
For music, I really like jazz, indie rock, classical, and epic soundtracks.
Currently Watching: Netflix...all of the Netflix
Currently Reading: Not enough
Currently Playing: Pathfinder
As for favorite food, I like spicy tasting dishes. I'm not big on sweets outside of desert. There are exceptions though, like sesame chicken.
Recently learned that I love indian food. I mean I knew that before but my brother introduced me to lamb vindaloo so yeah.
My family that has always supported me and my brother even after separating.
Free will, even if it technically does not exist according to causal determinism.
The good fight.
Even mores specifically: How Kant's 'kingdom of ends' makes him a hypocrite. How Aristotle's obsession with making lists and categories affected the practices of the European colonists in Rwanda, who twisted the previously harmonious Tutsis and Hutus from a farming tribe and ranching tribe into racial hierarchy puppet government that eventually led to a genocidal tipping point.
How the progress of the Feminist movement has led to a growing awareness amongst men of the ways in which antiquated concepts of masculinity has dictated their own repressed albeit privileged roles; leading some of them to join atavistic ideologies such as MRAs; when they should instead focus on a complimentary movement to reassess notions of masculinity and deconstruct toxic male stereotypes within the modern zeitgeist.
I think a lot about the stories I want to write or am writing. Stories like the one I'm currently working on. Also how I want to incorporate Shakespeare's rhetorical devices into my writing.
So yeah, something deep and meaningful like that or sex.
For what it's worth though, my policy is:
1. I'll always reply when someone messages me.
2. I'll always be civil with my messages. There is no class in being hurtful and unkind when talking to someone online.
