For seven and a half, long years I have been drifting through this post college hell on a self-deprecating life boat. Out of food for thought, parched of essential nutrients for my self-esteem, ever questioning my path and purpose, I have been wandering through time, but going no where. That's when it happened. I finally peered through the mist of the unknown to spot a shoreline. I could not let the waves of uncertainty cast me back out to sea...
So to you.. The beautiful, smart, nerdy, adventuring partner I have been yearning for since I departed on my journeys those many moons ago. I leave you this note. I hope it finds you well to let you know I have cast away this sinking ship of fruitlessness to dive into the cold waters of life and make a swim for it. If it is you, truly you. I dare you to come find me...
The introverted carpenter/cabinet maker who moonlights as a part time bouncer at bar downtown, who enjoys the outdoors, ice hockey, history, science, art, design, growing and crafting things with a deeply rooted nerdy side and really sweet beard. I hunger for the day to which we meet and I may lay my eyes upon you for the first time, but certainly not the last.
I like to think there's a number of things I'm good at. Mainly things that allow my creative juices to flow, which could be anything from artwork to cooking.
I'm short for a guy...
I have forearms that rival Pop-eyes...
I shave my head...
I'm always wearing some type of black shirt...
I have small ears apparently.
Anything by R. A. Salvatore and the Forgotten Realm books, Anything by J.R.R. Tolkien, The early Redwall series books by Brian Jacques, World War Z, The Tao of Pooh, and A Song of Fire and Ice Series just to name a few.
This would be a long list so I'll say I enjoy anything, but horror films. Unless, it's B rated horror films that you can sit and laugh at.
Cartoons: Retro Cartoons (Anything from LooneyToons to Space Ghost: Coast to Coast to Doug.) Venture Brothers, Family Guy, Futurama, Archer.
Live Action: Scrubs, House, How I Met Your Mother, American Pickers, Game of Thrones, Glee, The Big Bang Theory.
Anime: Ai Yori Aoshi series, Gatari Series, Chobits, Clannad, Elfen Lied, Ghost in the Shell, Kanon, New Dominion Tank Police, Record of Lodoss War, Shuffle!, School Days and Venus Wars.
I'm as eclectic with music as I am movies. It all depends on my mood and the setting. It may have been a hard day at work and I wanna come home and relax so I'll put on some instrumental piano music. I may be pumping up for a hockey game and throw on some alternative/metal. I may be driving around on a nice day with the windows down and through in some "top 40" from any generation (1950-2010s). Could be sitting outside grilling and enjoying a drink and put on some Frank. It all depends. I can tell you there are some things I don't really get/enjoy. There's a lot of Rap I just can't get into, "Dubstep" is bewildering and screamer metal where it's just some angry white kids yelling at the top of their lungs...
I'll try anything once. What I don't particularly care for is food that's made to replace/taste like other food. For instance: tofu. Don't particularly care for it. Turkey bacon? Why not just have regular bacon? Likewise, I tend to steer clear of imitation meals as much as possible. Only thing I might cook in my microwave is to heat/steam vegetables. With that said, anything else is fair game, doesn't matter the ethnicity or how weird it my be.
A steady paycheck, an automobile, my creative side, a little imagination, logic, purpose...
If you can describe yourself without using the phrases:
"I like to have fun...", (don't broad-brush, what exactly is fun for you)
"I love to party..." (I love to breathe???)
"I live my life to the fullest..." (not gonna touch this one right now)
any fake adjective that adds "icious" to it (self-explanatory)
