My self-summary
Planning a Phillipines trip.

I love to travel yes... I have found traveling is a great deal more enjoyable when you are with those you love- Family, friends, significant other....

I have a balcony garden thing. You know... Lettuce, herbs and such. The greatest success has been radishes. I have no idea why I planted them. Radishes pretty much suck.

I volunteer Saturdays for a local food pantry. I am taking a CERT (Community Emergency Response Training) course on Tuesdays. Joining Team Rubicon would be a gas. (update:finished the course)

Bought a Jeep Wrangler. I love my Jeep. Like... Too much.

Some of my weaknesses... I can get emotional, though I am a pretty happy person in general and very rarely get honestly angry. I have had a friend that thought I was judgmental... I told him he was wrong as always.
What I’m doing with my life
I got back into school a few years ago for an undergrad degree and currently work as a biochemist of sorts. I really enjoy the job and am lucky to be working with great people.

I love camping, fishing. hiking and would like to get into kayaking. I really enjoy fairly elaborate camp/open fire cooking. Basically outdoors stuff is my bag.

I stay in decent shape. I like to complain about a couple injuries I am rehabbing. In fact... I like to complain in general.

I have found myself adopting more of a spiritual path lately. I have attended a couple services and church functions looking for a home. Mostly I started going to church looking to finding ways to give back to the community, but I have to admit I have had unexpected spiritual growth. I love the surprises in life.
I’m really good at
I think I would make a good dad. I think I am a pretty good friend. I enjoy looking out for people and I am told I give good advice. I value these things a lot.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am a bit silly I guess. I am the guy in the group that will bust out in the middle of a momentary silence, "Did you know dolphins are just gay sharks?... Its true..."

I stole the line from Glee. I should probably put under "Most Private Thing I am Willing To Admit" I both steal lines from movies and other sources to claim as my own... and I watched Glee....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Speaking of silly... Not goin to list 57 favorite books, 39 movies and 'Italian food'... I mean nobody reads that.

So a general idea-

Not really a music fan. Well that isn't completely true, you could say I don't usually listen to music. I do like my silence.

As far as reading. Well I should read more but-
Every now and then I will get into a biography or some poetry. A little cheezy science fiction or comedy type stuff. I like a self-help book every now and then, Tony Robbins being a favorite.

Philip Dick, Saramago, CS Lewis and my favorite recently Kafka.

I do pretty well cooking sometimes. Probably worth mentioning I have Celiacs.
Six things I could never do without
I hate this section. You can not come up with something interesting or funny here... Can't be done.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I sometimes believe I spend too much time in contemplation. I have spent a considerable period evaluating this hypothesis.

(I liked writing the previous couple sentences way too much.)
On a typical Friday night I am
I spend some time at home watching netflix with my stupid cat. She likes comedies in general but hates formulaic television.

Uppity even for a cat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to note the highest 'Enemy %' matches I run across on searches... Just in case I am out and about, I want to be ready for trouble.

Also... I like to schedule things to create alliteration. For instance when my friend Wayne wanted to get together I suggested Wednesday. Or for instance 'Game of Thrones Thursday". I could lie and say I do it so I have an easier time remembering my schedule but the truth is I just plain find it amusing.

I laugh a lot... But I feel for the people i see on an online dating site. Why is everyone so damned lonely? I know how you feel.

A guy (in Kansas if I remember right) copied word for word parts of my profile. And another here in Austin. Kind of has me irritated.
You should message me if
You are honest. No games...

I am looking for someone fairly spiritual... Preferably Christian... I seek a long term commitment and nothing would be more depressing than going to church alone every week. In addition to caring for their spirit, I am looking for someone that respects their physical body. She doesn't have to be in amazing shape... But she should lead a balanced life.

Along with her physical health, I cannot date a person with deep seated issues...
