I have decided that this box has become my arch-nemesis. I keep writing and rewriting this box until I finally am happy with the result. I then leave it for a couple of weeks before I look at it again only to be amazed at how dumb or cliche it sounds. I then lather, rinse, and repeat. So this time I have decided to go with a more organized, bullet point style. In a couple of weeks I will look at this and wonder why on earth I ever thought this was a good idea.
Key Personality Traits:
Laid Back: I tend to go with the flow. I don't get frustrated or angry easily, and always try to be happy without being annoyingly chipper.
Sarcastic: Definitely my preferred form of humor, I use it every chance I get. What can I say? The world always needs more laughter.
Intelligent: I've always been smart and motivated and I work hard to better myself. I can easily carry on political, philosophical or literary conversations if you want.
My guess however is that there isn't a guy on this website that doesn't say he is some variation of relaxed, funny, and smart. (I haven't actually looked to confirm this, because then I would have to search through other dudes' profiles and I don't think my masculinity can withstand that) So here is another list of traits that hopefully separate me from the rest of the pack.
Nerdy, Composed, Klutzy, Excitable, Patient, Passionate, Dedicated. I may add others as I think of them.
Hobbies and Interests:
Movies: I love watching movies all of genres, though I am not a big fan of horror, particularly slasher films. I can talk about movies until I am blue in the face, so if you have a particular favorite, I'd love to hear it.
Computers: Whether it is working on them or playing with them, I get a lot of joy out tinkering around with electronics. Been doing this from a young age, and there is a reason this is the career I am getting into. If you love your job, you won't work a day in your life.
Cars: My dad is a car guy, and the gene got passed on down to me. He and I started working on them before I started driving, and the Mustang in my pictures is the one that we have been working on.
Hopefully you were able to get somewhat of a picture of me from that. Also hopefully you aren't thinking I'm a total windbag after reading it all.
I started working at a local engineering firm at the beginning of this summer, and am taking some time off to continue working there and get some job experience before I graduate. It pays the bills and keeps me out of trouble. Well, mostly out of trouble anyways. ;)
While I am working I am taking a few classes at CU, so I am in Boulder a lot during the week. I will go back to Cornell in the fall to finish my computer science degree and will be pursuing the dream of video game programming after I graduate.
Being ridiculous is my specialty. There is a time and place to be serious, but life is too short to be serious all the time. My goal is to single-handedly make the world a more interesting place, whether by riding dinosaur statues, or creating new foods like waffleburgers. (The origins of the waffleburger is a quite humorous story, and the end result was quite delicious)
If you want further explanation, I got bored in high school and decided to grow one. Over the years, it has grown on me. (Pun very much intended)
Movies: I firmly believe that Die Hard is the greatest Christmas movie every made. Love, Actually would be in second place. I love watching all movies other than horror, so it is real easy to find movies that we will both like. (Being a guy, the Twilight series counts as horror films)
Shows: I don't watch many shows. I do try to keep up with Doctor Who and Big Bang Theory. I also catch the occasional episode of How I Met Your Mother or Top Gear.
Music: Classic Rock. Favorite bands are Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, or Styx. That being said, I enjoy listening to pretty much any music, just not bad rap (Lil' Jon and similar).
Food: I have yet to find anyone who enjoys a hamburger more than I do, and will eat one any chance I get. I also really enjoy pizza, grilled cheese, and breakfast food. I'm a pretty simple guy when it comes to food.
Dinosaurs (Screw you, asteroids)
My close group of friends
Something to laugh about
Bonus Points to anyone else who thought this was a stupid question. As you can tell, I only took it half seriously.
In actuality, I am willing to talk about most anything, no matter how embarrassing, so just ask me what you want to know. And yes, I do realize that the previous statement is written on at least half the profiles on here.
- You find my goofiness either funny or cute or whatever positive term you want to use to describe it.
- You are laid back and don't have to go out to parties every weekend; you can have just as much fun hanging out just the two of us or a group of friends.
- You think I sound like a cool person.
