I have an unusual work schedule. I work Tuesday to Saturday. So Sunday and Monday are my days off.
I am quiet in group conversations. I am a lot more talkative in one on one conversations and I think I have something unique and interesting to bring to the table. I can be pretty weird at times and blurt out random/odd things with perfect timing. I would describe my humor as somewhat dark. Some people say that I am also snarky, since I tend to make jokes at my friends' expense, but it's all in good fun.
I also do have a significant hearing loss, so I have to ask people to speak up. For example, if a person has a naturally clear and relatively loud voice, then I will have a much easier time understanding that person than someone with a much quieter voice.
Sometimes, I will pretend to understand what a person has said by saying yes or no, rather than asking them to repeat themselves. This can lead to an awkward conversation if their question isn't something that can be answered with a yes or no statement. All that being said, patience when talking with me is definitely something that I have come to appreciate. I know that I am not going to hear everything a person says 100 percent of the time. This is especially true in loud and crowded environments, where my hearing aids amplify all of the noise around me and not just the person speaking.
I do wear behind the ear (bte) hearing aids, which are fairly visible. I don't think I am too self-conscious about wearing them. People tell me that that I have a excellent command of the English language, considering my hearing loss.
I am pretty dense when it comes to telling if a woman has an interest in me. I can't read minds and I am not really good at reading facial cues/expressions. A woman would have to punch me in the face for me to get the hint...(please don't punch me).
I want to say that I am trying to strive for something better with my life, but sometimes I get complacent at times with what I have. It can be hard to find that motivation to try new things.
I will admit that my knowledge of the scripture/bible is not as potent as I would like it to be. I am always learning new things whenever I read the bible and approach Christianity with humility.
Movies: The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Star Wars (some of them).
Tv Shows: Supernatural (this show is still going on!), Jericho (It was good while it lasted), Breaking Bad, Suits, MasterChef, Naked and Afraid, Dual Survivor, Game of Thrones, The Leftovers, The Flash.
Music: Don't have a favorite band, but Coldplay and Five for Fighting are pretty good. With music, I don't really understand the lyrics, so I am more into the music and the beat than what is being said.
Food: I don't have a favorite type of food, but I am willing to eat almost anything except olives. Please don't ask me to eat olives (except MAYBE on pizza). When I walk into a grocery store and I see olives in a jar, it looks like some mad scientist with his collection of human organs. Gross.

3. Television (with closed captions or subtitles)
what it would be like if two percent of the world's population suddenly disappeared. How would the world deal with the loss?
what it would be like if suddenly I had the powers/abilities of Superman...Would I try to stay anonymous or reveal myself to the world? How would this affect relations between different countries, knowing that a U.S. citizen is now the most powerful human being on the planet?
