My self-summary
tl;dr - Physicist, Pilot, Boy Scout, Adventurer, Atheist. In no particular order.

I'm usually happy :) I like to sing and dance, I'm unapologetically bad at both, and I enjoy being around people who are as excited to be alive as I am. Sometimes that comes off as "weird" or "annoying because I'm trying to work" to other people, but if you don't rock the boat, you'll never get it off the shore. I have a direction in life and I try to dream big. Usually, my dreams are followed by a series of unrealistic and illogical fantasies like being Batman or understanding String Theory, but I think it's important to have goals in life, even if they're absurd.

I enjoy helping other people and I consider myself to be a caring and sincere individual. I'm immoderately nerdy and I have a dry, sarcastic sense of humor that most people just don't get due to my lack of facial cues.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in the Air Force, so I move around a lot and I tend to leave the country on short notice sometimes.

Depending on how the next 15ish years go, I might try to go back to graduate school, but a lot is up in the air (no pun intended, self-five). I may go back to Colorado at some point if the timing works out.
I’m really good at
I can hold my own in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and in rap battles.

I'm really good at Rubik's cubes, remembering what that one song is called that goes like ..., winking, quantum physics, wearing my hat sideways, shrinking sweaters in the washing machine, Super Smash Bros, skiing backwards into telephone poles, and not swearing.
The first things people usually notice about me
my sense of humor. It's pretty intense sometimes and if I get you laughing, I don't stop. Unless I run out of things to say, then I stop. Duh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm a fan of most science fiction, but I've recently started reading more biographical stuff along with some philosophy. I'm stumbling through Game of Thrones at the moment and I've done pretty well at avoiding plot spoilers via the TV show and Facebook so, you know, don't ruin it.

Music: I listen to just about anything except country which is ironic because I live in Texas. I do have a soft spot for metal which is not ironic, but it is pretty vivid imagery if I do say so myself. I should be a writer. Women who can sing are basically my Achilles heel.

Food: I'm into almost any type of food. Eating is one of my favorite pastimes and I love cooking. I'm pretty good, but I've never been on any celebrity TV cooking shows so what do I know?

Movies and TV: I'd like to pretend that I don't care about movies and TV, but I want the things I can't have, so I tend to secretly binge watch Netflix over the weekend when I'm not studying. I have no idea why; they're not even good shows/movies. I'm fully aware that I'm completely wasting my time and that I should be doing my laundry or studying for my test next Wednesday. I know I have a problem.
The six things I could never do without
Omitting the explanation of the series of unfortunate events that necessitated me choosing the six things I can keep and assuming I don't need to pack for any type of apocalypse, I'd have to go with the following:

1. my irreplaceable friends
2. my family
3. learning something new every day
4. spell check
5. a healthy sense of humor
6. good conversation/debate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mostly I focus on my job. It's kind of a stressful environment given that people fail out of/die in my career all the time, but I spend a lot of time working to achieve that zen-like state that will get me through training but not get me pulled over and arrested while driving. I usually work 12-16 hour days, so I don't have a huge amount of free time during the week, but I love what I do so that helps a little :)

I love to discuss physics. It's kind of my thing. I'll do what I can to avoid the subject if I see glazed eyes, but I could talk about it for hours. One of my life goals is to invent teleportation. Also, I have a special place in my heart for Astrophysics and General Relativity so you can't have that piece. I started doing some amateur astrophotography in my free time, and I might try to get a nicer research grade telescope when I grow up (and stop moving so much).

I'm a bit of an outdoor snob. I love hiking and backpacking but I generally balk at camping requests because they colloquially imply simply driving into the woods to sleep in a car (if you're going to sleep in a tent, you should probably be more than 10 feet from your vehicle). I love looking up at night in the middle of nowhere. Sadly, I have yet to make it out to Big Bend.

I'm also really starting to get into philosophy and religion. I'm an atheist, but I've read through the Bible and Bhagavad Gita (working on the Koran) because religion fascinates me. Every once in a while, when I get bored, I'll whip out some Plato or Epictetus and then the party really gets going.

A recent endeavor I've developed is to learn a few other languages. Spanish would be the optimal choice given that I essentially live in Mexico, but I've started in on ASL and Swedish too. I took Japanese in college because it was a "strategic language". Thanks, counseling department.

I'm hypocritical in that I don't carry/own a concealed weapon/handgun for safety reasons, but if lightsabers existed, I would undoubtedly have two.
On a typical Friday night I am
They were out of typical Friday nights at Walmart so I only have the atypical kind.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a pink pocket knife that I carry to cut stray strings off my clothes. Weird.
You should message me if
you think you can go the distance. I've been pretty vague and selective with what I put on this page, so if you'd like more specifics, just ask! Be your own person before you go looking for someone to complete your life though, because if you're not happy with what you have now, meeting someone online isn't going to change anything.
