My name is Will, and I am an entertainer. My trade varies from amateur guitar ist, to semi-professional actor / singer. When I'm looking for a fun night though, I tend to either be at my piano or practicing my sword technique.
I tend to be a bit of a private person, but, for what I lack in disclosure, I more than make up for with compassion and willingness to listen to others. If you really want to know who I am, try talking to me. I may take a bit due to a hectic schedule, but I'll get back to you if you offer something fun to talk about.
I am ingenuitive, introspective, and indomitable
I'm getting ready to go back to college again. It's a very exciting and long awaited prospect. Which, of course, means right now I'm trudging my way back through all the tid-bits of knowledge I'll need for retaking the SAT, followed by a brief check to see if my AP Calculus credits are still transferable.
Met with this debate, and the surprising fact that, thanks to my father, I'm free to pretty much choose whatever pleases me without regards for consequences, I'm caught in a heated self-debate over wether I'll be studying Psychology and Philosophy, follow a more reasonable path of Engineering and Architecture, or walk an even more narrow precipice by pursuing a seminary degree.
That aside, at present, I am also pursuing many careers. My acting career has been a lot of fun, and helped to rebuild my self-esteem after two years of a prestigious music school left me with stage fright. I'm sure I could go farther, and I've got all of the neccessary connections now, as well as acclaim and award to my name, but with my life coming back together and back into focus, I"m finding that I don't need it anymore. Ultimately, I was looking for a family and a home, and I've found that now.
So does that mean I"m quitting the theatre- not quite. Every year, I've stopped to think about retiring from it due to financial instability. For now, I'm going to keep it up and enjoy the wonderful company that it brings my way, but I'll be starting on a grand journey in a couple of months, and I'm just not sure where it will fit into my life then. Which, by the way, may also mean my bidding adieu to okcupid.
Books: The Essential Confucius , The Count of Monte Cristo , Hagakure , Bushido , the Bible , Tao te Ching , an annotated copy of Sun Tzu's Art of War, Neil Gaiman's Sandman .

Movie?: The Princess Bride , House of Flying Daggers, Legend of the Drunken Master , Shinobi: Heart Under Blade, Dream of a Warrior , Brick. . .these are going to become long long lists. Maybe I should have stuck with just giving two examples of each.
Music: Sondheim, Gilbert and Sullivan, Punk, Metal (in any form with clean lyrics), Gregorian Chants on occasion. . .look, I have weird taste if your just going to nit pick. . .
TV (because that's a smaller list than food): sliders , Babylon 5 , Joss Whedon..enough said. Star Trek , Big Bang Theory , Frasier. I'm not a snob, I just like thinks that are intellectually engaging to me or immerse me in fantasy...preferably both.
