My self-summary
I'm an icelandic guy who enjoys a lot of things in life and want to experience as much as I can. I'm learning that life is too short to waste. My hobbies include but are not limited to; video games, reading books, writing, tarot cards and some other things. I also have a passing interest in anime, manga and comics.

Currently I'm working on a university education doing something I enjoy. I've spent a lot of time already trying other things at uni, like english and japanese studies, but haven't finished them and I don't think I will.

I'm packing a bit of extra weight, but it used to be a whole lot more. If I can keep to my exercises, it'll be gone by the end of summer.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying computer sciences at a university in order to have a future in that branch. Working out to become fit and healthy. Learning and reading.
I’m really good at
Video games, reasoning... I also can be rather good at languages if I put my mind to it. It's a pity I haven't used what I've learned in so long, I've started to forget it. Almost all the french and spanish I learned in high school is gone. Oh well... at least I've still got my english ;)

Im also told that I'm really good at getting people to be happy/amused.
The first things people usually notice about me
Dark colours and my sense of humor. Well ok maybe also the fact that I'm very distant at first. I can take a while to warm up to a person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A song of ice and fire series, Dune series, warhammer 40k books, Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, many of Pratchett's books (wish I'd read more).

Movies: I'll pick action, horror and comedy over romance and drama anyday. My favorites include The Prestige, Predator, The thing, Terminator, Hook and many more. Anime movies also hold a great interest for me. Well, most animation does ( I love Cloudy with a chance of meatballs, how to train your dragon as well as as most of disney's movies)

Music is rather all over the place... electronic music, metal, and pop. I don't stick to a music group, I just know what I like and I follow it. Artists include Daft Punk, Candlemass, Bomfunk MC and others. I like ambient music so I sometimes listen to stuff like Lustmord. What else could I mention? Oh! I like Rammstein, Deftones and Ace of Base.

Food is lasagna, chicken, chili and all sorts of other stuff I probably shouldn't be eating. Pizza is always good because you can do anything with it. Toppings are debatable, but it has to have meat of some kind. I don't like black olives or blue cheese on pizza... or fish...
If I can't have meat I'll go for fish, but it's not my favorite. Prawn, lobster and tuna are probably my favorite fish types. I can't say I like the rest... like what do they call it; haddock? Also, I hate the bones in fish, hate them! >_<<br />
I also drink tea and soda... mostly coca cola. Probably should switch to a diet version though.
The six things I could never do without
My computer.
My friends.
My imagination.
... coca cola?
Hot baths ^^
Video games!
Hmmm... let's add my running shoes, too.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Fiction, things I've read, things I want to write and just generally enjoy I guess.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing tabletop roleplaying games, reading a book, at the movies, relaxing, studying. Fun stuff...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I keep discovering that I'm not as good a person as I think myself to be. I can be a hypocrite and when I discover this I usually withdraw from society and contemplate what I'm doing wrong.
You should message me if
You're icelandic. You aren't going to message me. It's that simple ;) I know your ways!

Seriously though, you should message me if you're bold, interested or otherwise just looking for a good time or a good friend. Nuff said. Ciao.
