My self-summary
Raised by an engineer, friends with theater people, and the nerd who sings at karaoke night: my name's Alex, and it's nice to meet you!

For better or worse, I love comedy, and I seem to have a bad habit of making people laugh right as they sip their drinks. But I know when to be serious, and I really enjoy chewing on larger ideas with other people; philosophy classes were one of my favorite parts of college.

Going out with friends is fun, but I definitely recharge by being alone or with a select few people (extroverted introvert, etc): I like to unwind with video games, biking, watching documentaries or stand-up comedy, and petting random dogs. I'm very much an animal person in general.
What I’m doing with my life
I'll be working in Louisville KY from October 2016 until July 2017, and then I'll most likely move back to Rockford IL. I work as a mechanical engineer, and it's awesome: I get to invent new products, work with large machines, and practice my writing skills: good ideas don't count if you can't explain them. I even bought a desktop 3D printer so I can make stuff at home.

I'm also working on a stand-up routine, but writing is very slow, hard work, especially when it has to hit people in such a specific way.
I’m really good at
Fixing things, singing (I will absolutely sing Disney songs with you), making people laugh, making Simpsons references, getting along with animals, helping people with their problems, figuring out how things work, and making jokes about how things work.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a nerd for science and technology, and I make fun of myself for it. More than one person has compared me to Sheldon Cooper, which is kind of sad, actually, haha.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Also relevant to many popular songs:

The six things I could never do without
> Interesting ideas to chew on instead of falling asleep
> Supportive friends
> Tools and projects
> Jokes
> Excel
> Philosophical bullshit that only I find interesting
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people act the way they do, things I could invent, and nice things I'd like to do for a date. My brain doesn't sleep, and sometimes neither do I.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fixing my house, singing at a karaoke bar, gaming, building things, but I also like cozy nights in... maybe with a special someone ;)
You should message me if
> You like to laugh a lot.
> You'd like to go on a bike ride, play with dogs, or have a cozy gaming night with me.
> Your eye-rolling can appear dismissive yet amused, because you'll need it :P
