My self-summary
Recently moved again. I'm hopping around the west suburbs, it seems. Glen Ellyn is much cooler than Aurora, though, especially since I live literally down the street from its downtown area

I took a wonderful vacation in Seattle a while back. One day, I pretty much just walked aimlessly around the city, and it was wonderful, and I found out that I like wandering very much.

I was at Game 6 of the NLCS to watch the Cubs make their way to the World Series after their 71 year drought. I don't care if that means nothing to you, but it was certainly a night I will never forget.

I occasionally get drunk in the winter so I can then taste the cold, because it really tastes good.

I grew up in a Christian household, and while I wouldn't say I follow the religion anymore, it still has shaped a good part of who I am today. (Less 'THE GAYS ARE EVIL,' more 'Don't be a dick')

I once cooked up homemade rocket fuel in a hot plate. It turned out to be more of a smoke bomb, though. I need to perfect the recipe.

I like planes and trains, but I'm not all that fond of automobiles.

Every now and then, I get the urge to move to Sweden (Used to be Iceland, but since I'm non-EU Sweden is much more realistic).

I should have been a 16th century blacksmith.

I might just be the only person in the entire Chicago Metro area that still enjoys cold weather past mid-January.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in IT sales. I enjoy it and it does a very good job of providing me the money to live comfortably. On the other hand, I really have absolutely no idea where I'll be in 5 years, but I know I won't be in the same place.
I’m really good at
Confusing people with my deadpan sarcasm. The only indicator I like to use to let people know I'm not serious is being incredibly over-the-top and ridiculous, which still goes over some heads a little too much.

Being incredibly cynical while holding a very happy and optimistic outlook on life. It's a fun balance!
The first things people usually notice about me
My sometimes-deep laugh. If something's just the right amount of funny, it'll resonate and shake the floor.

I am a Swedish Viking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Fantasy and sci-fi, especially anthologies. A Song of Ice and Fire > Lord of the Rings, so there. Random science-y books as well. For the most part, I enjoyed the books I was forced to read in high school.

Movies: I finally saw Ex Machina.

Shows: Finishing up Person of Interest, which is a top-notch sci-fi show too good to be on a network. I'll still thank the gods for its existence.

Music: I can find enjoyable music in any genre, but I love symphonic metal with female vocalists. And some types of EDM. Just started getting into electroswing like Caravan Palace; it's just so fun!

Food: I can't stand rotisserie chicken, I will never have enough sushi, and I usually prefer getting drunk on hard cider, wine, or vodka. That's about it.
The six things I could never do without
Trees
Alarm clocks - multiple.
Bike paths
Occasional late nights
Occasional late mornings
Uhhhh
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The ethical implications of the theory that we're all just living in a simulation of the universe.

Honeycrisp apples: Genetically engineered to be the *perfect* apple.

The technological singularity, or "DAMMIT When do I get my cyborg implants?"

On a typical Friday night I am
Well, Thursday night is bar night with friends, and Saturday night is game night, so I generally prefer my Friday nights to be a bit more personal. Sometimes Netflix ( Currently binging Person of Interest) or sometimes I'll go out with one or two people at most.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Bitchiness is attractive to me, so yeah.
You should message me if
You wanna do classy things (Like going to the opera), nerdy things (Like board games or video games) or classy-nerdy things (Like watching Star Trek accompanied live by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra) together.

If you wanna ask me about the ethical implications of the theory that we're all just living in a simulation of the universe.
