My self-summary
My name's Ryan and below this sentence is most likely a very poorly executed online self description!

The most important thing about me has always been my strong belief that life has near limitless possibilities which makes it incredibly hard for me to stick to just one career path or the same old interests. My wish is to be able to go to school for the rest of my life. That way I can always be learning something new. Speaking of school, I recently graduated from the udub and am enjoying a half full plate i.e. just work. So I am really trying to remember what to do with all this new found free time. This has included going to all the shows I have been unable to see for years, trying to hike without falling down, and going on impromptu vacations/roadtrips. It also means I finally have more time to try for one of those "meaningful relationships". Which is why I decided to venture online (the internet provides so much!) but making new friends is also something I desire.

Music is one of the most important things in my life and it gets me through even the roughest days mentally intact! I mostly enjoy alternative, indie, punk, hardcore and experimental rock. Like most people around town I do love live music the best. Another past-time for me is just walking around and people watching. Seriously, where else but in Seattle can you see a guy in a kilt riding a unicycle down the road in the rain? Also, even after graduating I still love to learn so I can be found at various lectures around the city.
What I’m doing with my life
Working a pretty odd scheduled job that I enjoy and trying to come up with new activities to do on my weekend. Usually this involves eating lots of food. Now that the weather has changed, I am trying to spend more time outdoors as well.
I’m really good at
I used to play soccer and did fencing (yes with swords!). Both of which I got pretty good at over the years. Skiing has also been a hobby of mine, but I am better at crashing into trees than skillfully navigating courses. I'd also like to think I have impeccable taste in food. Eating for pleasure can be incredibly fun and I am trying to cook more for myself as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
If its not my hair then it's probably the fact that my voice is ridiculous. Most people comment on it being strange that such a skinny guy has a rather deep voice. I think its funny when I talk to people on the phone and they finally meet me. Almost everyone is shocked.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My favorite books of all time are those written by Chuck Palahniuk, Frank Herbert, Solzhenitsyn, B.E.E, Neil Gaiman, Cormac Mccarthy, George R.R. Martin, John le Carré, and Colleen Mccullough. I just read Patrick Rothfuss's "The Name of the Wind" and absolutely loved it! Also, if you know of any amazing authors please tell me. Going to Third Place Books is my idea of a good time (though can be rather expensive).

Food: I love all food but my favorites would be thai and sushi! Restaurant hunting is so much fun. Since moving back to Ballard I seriously spend all too much eating out but it is totally worth it. Also, I live by the mantra that cheese makes everything better. Recently I ended up eating Brie on tortilla chips and it was awesome.

RANDOM EPIC LIST TIME(mostly music): Pad thai, Kavinsky, Jackie Chan movies (especially drunken master), Fall of Troy,Broken Social Scene, Moneta, Coheed and Cambria, exhibits on space, THE MOVIE SUNSHINE, Firefly,Arrested Development, Parks&Rec, X-files, The Wire, Dexter, The Office, School Yard Heroes, Man Overboard, Forgive Durden, Muse, Drmanhattan(the band), Anti-flag, Gatsby's American Dream, Oldboy, Mumford and Sons, Straylight Run, Taking Back Sunday, SIFF, Escape from NY, Zombieland, Winter's Tale, The Format, No Country for Oldmen, Hanna, Dameria, BBNR!, Evil Dead, Envy on the Coast, Repo! The Genetic Opera, Kids in Glass Houses, Paddock Park, Faster Faster, Karate HighSchool, Chromeo, JamisonParker (I really do like this terribly emo band), Armor for Sleep, The Audition, Tiger Tiger!,Tokyo Police Club, Thrice, Less Avenged, Explosions in the Sky, Serenity, skiing, and so much more...
The six things I could never do without
the interwebz
and these songs:

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next spontaneous adventure! Goals pertaining to work and school. I also think about space a lot, and how some of the things going on here on earth may seem absolutely ridiculous to any aliens watching.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday is the end of my weekend so hopefully making the most of it!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like Harry Potter and don't care who knows!!!!

I also have dyslexia which comes out only when I am sleep deprived. So hopefully I haven't made any egregious spelling/grammar errors while writing this.
