My self-summary
I am an entity, I do things I like: reading, video games. I also do things I don't necessarily like: school, work.

Trying to achieve a few different goals, some short term, some long term. Long term goals I will need some help with, but for now working on the short term.
What I’m doing with my life
School for a CIS degree with a focus in computer programming.

I am also reading a bunch of awesome things and occasionally playing some awesome games.

Also working.

Thus, I lack much in the way of free time. That's pretty much how it is for everyone though, right?
I’m really good at
Being me? I guess? Which means I excel at reading.

...

Pretty much just that. I play video games, and as I possess a better than average competency level, I feel that I'm generally pretty good, but it's not a one size fits all sort of thing. All games are different, and the type of game that I think I would be super awesome at hasn't been made yet. Though I am working on acquiring the skills and contacts to make that a reality, it's still not something that is present.
The first things people usually notice about me
It varies. Make your own impression of me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fantasy and Sci-fi books, movies, and shows, for the most part. I do quite enjoy tv dramas as well.

I also have a deep admiration and fondness for Xianxia and Chinese Fantasy novels. Coiling Dragon, Stellar Transformations, Martial God Asura, Against the Gods, I Shall Seal The Heavens, Battle Through The Heavens, Zhan Long, and The King's Avatar, to name a few. Korean novels like Ark, Ark The Legend, and Legendary Moonlight Sculptor are fantastic as well.

This, on the whole, led to an interest and appreciation in Chinese culture and mythos.

That said, as I have worked in a bookstore, I've expanded what books I read. JR Ward and Alice Clayton are fantastic Romance authors, and I highly recommend them. Cassandra Clare is good (though I really do think the Mortal Instruments books should just be a trilogy), and John Flanagan is fantastic at what he does (seriously - the Ranger's Apprentice series was awesome to read).

Books are nourishment for the soul; people that don't read aren't worth my time.

My music tastes stretch far and wide. Here's a list that will make my profile so much longer than it has to be. I do this only because it makes it easier to read, and I hate hard to read profiles.

In no particular order with very little rhyme or reason (partially because I'm insane and mostly because I adore bad puns, and so my rhyme and reason are stretched thin. You'll get used to it... or you won't.)

Blind Guardian
Zedd
Hammerfall
Alestorm
Scythia
Nightwish
DragonForce
Kamelot
Masterplan
Van Canto
ItaloBrothers
Manian
DJ S3rl
Nightcore
Nightstep
The High Kings
Avicii
Nero
Il Volo - Grande Amore
Hardstyle
Cascada
Twilightning

And more. Much more, much of that is singular songs by various artists, but there is no need to get that particular.

Video games. Man, girl, lady, dude, person, nouns and adjectives. We need common terms for the gender neutral folks. Dude often gets applied to males and females, and there is also bro for guys, but like... they/them doesn't cover nearly enough. We need more, and though I'm far from the right person to make this sort of term, it's still a thing we need people thinking on and spreading throughout the blogosphere until it becomes a thing.

So anyway, videogames. Also, acronyms. LoL, SWTOR, FFXIV, WoW, HS, ME, SC, B&S, XCOM, FO, and more. I was tempted to make some up and intersperse them to keep you guessing, but I'm not that creative or that interested in making this difficult for you. Once we know each other better? Absolutely. On occasion. Actually, probably not, I'm terribly forgetful. I'll plan to do it and then just up and forget because I'm fairly honest and lying and deceit generally helps no one.

I would make a list for manga and anime, but space in its ever growing entirety doesn't have enough room for my love of manga and anime.

That being said, I feel like I should list a few just so you can compare it to your list and give us something to talk about. Alternatively, it'll be some recommendations for you to check out.

Anime:
D.N.Angel
Shuffle!
The Irregular at Magic High School
Darker Than Black
Sports anime. I adore sports anime.

Manga (Also including Manhwa and webnovels here):
So, I read all of Naruto, and enjoyed it, but I dislike the anime.
Soul Cartel
The Gamer
Black Haze
New Prince of Tennis
Red Storm
HunterxHunter

List too long, doesn't even scratch the surface, but there's some to check out.
The six things I could never do without
Basically, in no particular order:

Hot Tea
Comfy Clothes
Family (The ones you choose along with the ones you don't.)
Honesty
Toiletries
Stories
Puns
Vehicles
Air
Currency
The list goes on.

I am the master of this profile, and as such I maintain and excercise my right to ignore any arbitrary rules and regulations that I please; especially if by doing so there are no harming or inconvenient consequences.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The best way to cultivate my Dao-heart.

Why someone with a Master's Degree in Mathematics (that also works as a math tutor) has trouble calculating his to-hit and damage totals in Dungeons and Dragons games.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. These days it is either working or school, I very rarely have days off where I do neither. As you can imagine, my free time for a relationship, at the moment, is pretty much 0. THAT BEING SAID, I DO have some free time, typically in the mornings. Plenty of time to meet for breakfast, brunch, second breakfast, lunch, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't do: Nature, Insects, or Arachnids of any sort.

Also, I'm polytheistic. I don't make a big deal about it, I handle spiritual matters my own way, but I understand that this won't jive well with some people. So, here it is.
You should message me if
You should message me if you want to.

Let's make this easier, here's a question for you.

What do you want out of a relationship?

Send me a message with your answer, or with a question of your own, or both. I'd be happy to discuss whenever you're feeling up for it.
