My self-summary
Hello! My name is Jonathan.

I'm what people would describe as a nerd. I would much rather play video games and surf the internet than go out clubbing or do outdoors activities like hiking, mudding, hunting, and stuff. I'd certainly be willing to try these things and a lot more, but I feel most comfortable being more sedentary than active.
I do more than "nerd stuff" though. I like to draw and write, and I love exploring the world, its people, and its cultures. Japan is particularly interesting to me (I admit I'm a bit of a Japanophile), and it's first on the list of countries I'd like to visit. I also like watching soccer and world sports like the Olympics. I love to cook and I love to cook for people.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in college at Hillsborough Community College, where I will very soon earn my AA then transfer to a 4 year institution to get my Bachelor's degree. After that is grad school, but I'm not sure where I want to go for that.

I'm living with my family until I can get my own apartment. No shame in that.
I’m really good at
...figuring things out quickly, especially technology. I love to learn and I absorb all kinds of things like a sponge.
...empathy and sympathy. I like to be there for people and be their support or shoulder to cry on if they ever need it.
...keeping clean, both with myself and my surroundings. I never let a mess get out of control, and if I find a mess that no one wants to tackle I'll likely clean it up myself.
...keeping conversation. I can get very chatty about a lot of things.
The first things people usually notice about me
At 5'6" I'm pretty short for my age. I also have a young looking face so people often mistake me for being a teenager.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I like to read, but unfortunately I find myself picking up a book maybe once a year lately. The Harry Potter series, The Barcode Tattoo, The Barcode Rebellion, A Handmaid's Tale and The God Delusion are among my favorites. I recently started reading books by John Green.
Old poems are cool, too.

Movies: I love me some action, sci-fi, and comedy. I can't really pinpoint a favorite.

- Cop dramas like Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, and NCIS.
- Sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory, Last Man Standing, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, George Lopez.
- Cartoons like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, Family Guy, South Park.
- I'm a huge fan of anime, or Japanese cartoons and I love to go to anime conventions and cosplay, or dress up as my favorite anime characters. It's something that's been a pretty big interest of mine since I was in middle school and will likely be into for a while.
- I also watch America's Got Talent every year.

Music: Rock, mostly. Rock of any type from classic 50's rock n' roll to modern bands. I also like electronic and dubstep music. No matter what, though, classical music and jazz (not really any specific song or artist) has a place in my heart.

Food: If it's meat and/or spicy, I'll likely eat it. I'm open to trying anything once, no matter how weird. Buffalo chicken wings, specialty burgers like those at Ruby Tuesday's and Red Robin, and sukiyaki are among my favorites.
Six things I could never do without
1. Human contact - not necessarily physical, but just talking to someone in real life or on the internet that lets me know that people are out there. I like alone time, but I hate being alone.
2. The internet - I know how to survive without it, I just would really prefer I have it in as many places as possible. To me, the world is so much smaller without this marvel of human innovation.
3. Humor - There's something to laugh at in almost anything. Finding the funny in even the most mundane of places adds a lot of spice to life.
4. Animals - What's the point of being the only sentient creature on the planet if there aren't other non-sentient creatures to share it with and study?
5. Family - It's the only one I've got, and though we have our differences we love each other to bits and wouldn't abandon anyone in a time of need.
6. Education - If you haven't gathered already, intelligence and education is huge to me. It's the key to human advancement and innovation. Without it we would literally be unable to survive.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...Existentialism. Though I think most people do this when falling asleep/in the shower/on the toilet. I'm no profound thinker, but often those big questions do come up when I'm alone.
...Travelling the world. I want to meet all kinds of people and go to all kinds of places. Part of the reason I want a good job is so I can afford to go everywhere I want. Teachers don't make that much but I can still save up!
...Nerd fantasies. Like what if I got a magic greatsword that gave me powers I had to save the world with? Or if Pokémon were real? Or how long until we get warp travel?
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, gaming, writing, or watching anime on my laptop. Maybe going out to a movie or the mall every couple of weeks or so.

If I went with someone else, I might tolerate a club, but they're really not my thing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
20% cooler. If you understand that, major bonus points.
You should message me if managed to get this far and you read everything! I know I put a lot, but sometimes it's hard to tip the scales of "Do I want to talk to them?" with just a little information. like nerd stuff, too! Shoot me a reference to just about anything video game, anime, or cartoon related and I'll probably get it!'re just plain interested to know more about me! Even with the wall of text I threw at you, there's still more to me than that.
