My self-summary
Hi there! My name is Austin. I'm extremely honest. Partly because I believe that's how it should always be done, but mostly because I suck at lying. I have an ego that tends to be on the larger side. Some people would call me conceited, but I like to think of it more that I'm firmly convinced of my own awesomeness. I'm a huge foodie, so I'm always checking the Orlando-area blogs for new developments or restaurant reviews.
What I’m doing with my life
Just got my BA in Anthropology from UCF. Any time I have a spare moment that I'm not using to talk to people, I can be found reading my Kindle. I'm working with the Florida Public Archaeology Network to digitally preserve artifacts.
I’m really good at
remembering obscure facts and stories. I love to go and find stories that not many people know and go tell them to other people. Cracking jokes and making puns, sometimes they laugh and sometimes they don't. That's how life goes though. Don't know if I'm good at it or not, but I certainly enjoy it. I know a little about pretty much any subject you can come up with. I'm great at getting along with all types of people.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and my eyes. I've been told they both look rather mischievous
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love the theatre and I was in several plays in middle and high school. My favorite musicals would probably be Avenue Q, Rent, Chicago, and Phantom.

I read just about everything I can get my hands on, so my tastes run the gamut from fantasy and sci-fi to most types of nonfiction. The one common thing is that there are adventures. I really enjoy A Song of Ice and Fire, and Lord of the Rings. Just finished The Name of the Wind, and The Wise Man's Fear. I would definitely recommend them.

I really enjoy watching movies and my favorites are usually comedies, but I've seen great examples of every genre. I'm a fan of film noir and I enjoy a lot of the cult classics. Pulp Fiction and The Big Lebowski being standouts for me. As for TV shows, I'm a fan of Doctor Who and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, among others.

I'm a pretty big gamer, both tabletop and video. I enjoy RPGs the most in both mediums.
Six things I could never do without
My Kindle
Science Fiction
An audience
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to teach someone something I had just learned. I believe the best to way to test your understanding of something is to teach it to someone else. So I spend a lot of time planning out how I would explain something to to other people. For example, Did you know that most of the time what you are seeing isn't how the world actually is but how your brain remembers it as?
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually hanging out with my friends. Sometimes we watch movies but most of the time it's just drinking and talking, though they do most of the drinking. I have an opening for the position of "Boardgame Partner" that I've been looking to fill for a while.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a total attention whore. If I wasn't so pragmatic I could almost be paid in compliments.
You should message me if
You like watching movies multiple times
You think animation is an art form, and not "just cartoons"
You want to send me jokes and puns (lame or otherwise).
You want to talk about books or have suggestions for me.
You value honesty and directness.
The two of us
