My self-summary
A serious grownup, I'm pretty sure that's how my friends would describe me, wryly smiling as I counter this assertion with a story of drunken shenanigans. That's probably the best to crash course on me I can give.

I grew up in Sacramento, and will probably settle down here too. I spent the first 5 years of adulthood in the Marines, and loved it. I've taken a break from school because I've been going almost non-stop since I was a child (even the Marines sent me to school for two years to learn Arabic), so now I work at my friend's company while I learn more about software development.

I love drawing, and until I discovered the wonders of Warhammer 40,000 it was my one true passion. Miniatures and painting have since taken up nearly all my leisure time, but I can't help flitting from one diversion to another. I'm also in love with cooking, the more elaborate the better. I'm way into tattoos and can't wait to get another one. Also, webcomics.

By the way, I'm Joe. If you make it this far and message me knowing my name, bravo, we should have a conversation!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm taking it easy and trying to figure things out. I'm trying to enjoy the ride because I've always been a very goal oriented person, and feel like I've missed out a little because of it.
I’m really good at
Being awesome. It's kind of my thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My self-assured-ness, which all my friends find contagious. I love being the up beat guy in the room and then seeing that same attitude reciprocated and growing.

Also, my awesome smile, but here's a secret: the front six are fake. I had a messed up mouth and Uncle Sam (and a great Navy doc) fixed them up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love reading, especially trashy sci-fi. Favorite books include Horus Rising, 1632, Catch 22, et cetera.

Movies: just about anything, although I'm kind of a sap for romantic comedies. I've also been into war flicks lately, both fictional and documentaries.

My music tastes tend to be kind of all over the place. My current two favorites are Polar Bear Club and Brand New, but I've got some old standby's like Reel Big Fish, NoFX, Dr. Dre, Authority Zero, the list goes on. Also, I've gotta add Ratatat to the list, they have hit me like a hammer blow to the pleasure centers of the brain. And I listen to dubsteb when I work out, guilty pleasure.

Food: is it food? 'nuff said.
Six things I could never do without
1. Monsters - my only true vice.
2. Books - because sitting around staring at walls in my free time is so very boring.
3. Cooking - making it yourself adds to the flavor.
4. My miniatures - painting them is the third most relaxing thing in the world.
5. A shave and haircut - after 5 years of having to groom myself, I've gotten used to looking presentable. I guess I can't get away from that lifestyle.
6. Wool socks - they're so very warm, and I wear them whenever possible.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I've been and where I'm trying to go. I want to figure it all out, and can't accept that I probably never will.
On a typical Friday night I am
Nerding out with the guys or enjoying a few drinks with old friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a homebody, and I love it
You should message me if
You want to chat up a storm
The two of us
