My self-summary
So about me, here we go... I am loyal (almost to a fault) and am always willing to stand by the people I care about. I think of myself as a kind and caring person. I try to be kind to everyone and if I care about someone I am always there for them. I am very open-minded and very respectful of people no matter what. I would like to find someone who is similar in these aspects. I am a fun and easy going guy with a passion for video games and history. I have been playing games for as long as I can remember; my first system was the Sega Genesis. Since then I have played many games on many consoles. I love a huge variety of gaming genres. Music games, Rpg's, Action-Adventure games, fighting games, survival horror, shooters, stealth games; I've played them all! I also enjoy the occasional board game. I am also extremely fascinated with history. In fact, I just finished up my bachelor's degree in history. I love all types of history, but am especially interested in Latin-American History and 19th/20th Century U.S. History. I also really love basebalI. I'm a big White Sox fan and enjoy going to the ballpark to catch a ball game from time to time. I'm also a huge pro wrestling fan. WWE, NXT, Lucha Underground, NJPW and some AAA, TNA and ROH stuff mixed in.

It is worth mentioning that I am disabled. I permanently use a wheelchair. However, I have never let this bring me down or keep me from doing what I want. I am always up for new experiences and trying new things. I take my disability in stride and never let it affect me in a negative way. In fact I truly believe that my disability has made me a much stronger and patient person.
What I’m doing with my life
I finished up my BA in History and I am currently in the process of trying to find a job. I am pretty much willing to do any history related job. I would prefer a job in which I can do historical research or possibly work for a museum. But we will see. I am also considering returning to school to get certified to teach high school history.
I’m really good at
I have been told that I am a good listener by my friends. In my group of friends I am usually the person people will come to with stuff and then I usually give them the best advice that I can. Video games (in case you couldn't already tell), specifically Gears of War and Dance Dance Revolution (with a controller of course!), and busting out historical fun facts.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sweet wheels. :) But in all seriousness, probably that I am a nice person overall (too nice most people say).

Six things I could never do without
1. The Knights of Gaming and my family (Does that count as two? Eh, whatever)
2. Good Conversation
3. Video Games
4. Hamburgers
5. Beastie Boys
6. Wheelchair
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future and my place in it. Whether or not I'll land a cool job. Oh yeah, and my peeps.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ever since we were about 13, every Friday my friends and I have what we call "Game Night." We basically just hang out and watch random stuff and play video games untill like 3 or 4 in the morning. The Knights of Gaming in my things I can't live without refers to this. The Knights of Gaming is just a nickname for my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was deathly afraid of the Crypt Keeper from Tales from the Crypt until I was like 16. Since then I have overcome that fear and realized how awesome the Crypt Keeper and Tales from the Crypt are! It's now one of my favorite shows and I own all of the seasons.
