My self-summary
Prickly and nervous man.

I have little dreams of starting a video rental store, or writing a fantasy novel, or making a monster movie, or directing a play with friends. But it all seems so far off.

I'm actually new around here and actually need someone to show me around. So I may in fact be trying to make friends with you as opposed to date you.
What I’m doing with my life
That information is on a need-to-know basis (as in I need to know it soon). Let me know if you need actors for a Shakespeare play, or people for a tabletop RPG, or if you know of a bookstore that's hiring.
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
Spending time alone is important, since that's what enables me to do more hanging out.

Regrettably, I'm becoming increasingly dependent on ASMR videos for sleep.

Masturbation keeps me sane.

And, like a perfect capitalist, I need to be distracted by my big hoard of books, movies, and albums.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to become happy
On a typical Friday night I am
having fun on INTERNET
You should message me if
If you can have fun without drugs and alcohol. I don't teetotal, but I flirt with the idea.

Alternatively, if you don't know what to say, tell me what you think of this video:
