My self-summary
I'm a pretty laid back guy. I'm from New Hampshire, and miss it tons. It's one of my favorite places to be, and I get back there every chance I get. I grew up on the beach there; as such I'm a fan of all those beachy activities like sunbathing, bodysurfing, swimming, and scuba diving. The one thing I still need to pick up is surfing, and I am determined to do so the next chance I get. Basically, I just like being outside. I really enjoy biking and skiing as well - in fact I'm recently finished an epic cross country (well, almost) bike trip this past summer. I'm really excited for the baseball season, it's hands down my favorite sport to watch, but sorry Phillies fans, I'm a Sox fan through and through.

I prefer to focus on the journey as opposed to the destination. Trying to think of a less lame way to phrase that, but I think that might be the best summary of me that I can come up with. Though it would seem like my destination for the foreseeable future is pretty clear.
What I’m doing with my life
Doin' the med school thing.. I'll be studying to become a psychiatrist, barring any epiphanies that clinical rotations might bring. I can tell you right now, I'm pretty sure I won't be an Ob/Gyn. No offense, ladies.
I’m really good at
Listening. It's one of my favorite things to do. And school, sadly. I'm kind of good at that too. So I guess it's a good thing that I'll be going to school to learn how to listen to people's problems, among other things.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. And my laugh. And my sense of humor. And my third nipple.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(a) dorky fantasy books, religious texts/commentary, His Dark Materials!!, The Pillars of the Earth, The Giver, At Swim Two Boys, American Gods, Kavalier and Clay, Harry Potter, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, anything by Milan Kundera, Siddhartha,Watership Down, Optic Nerve, the Redwall series, Calvin & Hobbes, the Odyssey, or anything else relating to mythology.

(b) Wet Hot American Summer, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Hunt for Red October, The Big Lebowski, Top Gun, Disney Movies, The Last Unicorn, Underworld, The Secret of NIMH, Starship Troopers, Showgirls, SyFy originals, creature features, any craptastic romantic comedy/horror/action film, with emphasis on the word craptastic

(c) Weezer, Radiohead, Goldfrapp, Bon Iver, The Tallest Man on Earth, Ray LaMontagne, and pretty much anything else under the sun.

(d) Black raspberry (oreo) hot fudge sundaes from Lagos, strawberries dipped in chocolate, guacamole burgers, anything fried, beer, etc. etc.

(e) No list of my favorite things would ever be complete without a list of favorite TV shows. In fact, I've pretty much stopped watching movies altogether in favor of this longer form of entertainment. Shows I like fall into two categories. "Good" shows, and shitty entertaining shows. Observe: Battlestar Galactica, Carnivale, Arrested Development, Veronica Mars, Friday Night Lights, Deadwood,Avatar: The Last Airbender, Always Sunny, Old South Park, Old Adult Swim stuff. And then theres One Tree Hill (lucas, so gay! dan scott, so rad! nathan, so hot!), ANTM, So You Think You Can Dance, Nip/Tuck, Vampire Diaries, and the list goes on. Oh, but you can't forget the greatest shitty show of all time, 90210. (I'm talking about Brenda and Kelly, not this new bullshit).
Six things I could never do without
1. SLEEP. Seriously, i love this above all else. Don't fuck with my sleep.

2. Food. My second favorite thing besides sleep. I am starting to sound like a hedonist.

3. Which would then lead me to say sex. I could probably live without it. But I would rather not.

4. And since this list is sounding very generic, I am gonna say my life experiences thus far. (wait, is that still generic?) Yes, I know thats pretty gay, but I wouldn't be the person I am today without them.

5. My mind. This sounds pretty self-explanatory, but without it, I would be like all the other bigoted assholes out there.

6. Last but certainly not least, my TV. It's true people. I freaking love TV.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what the next few years are going to bring.

my family, and how much i love them. (awww.)

your mom, while we are on the subject of family.

the state of new hampshire, and how much i miss it.

hot dudes, if i'm being honest.
On a typical Friday night I am
watching Battlestar Galactica and Friday Night Lights. Ok, that was back when Battlestar used to be on, but since I liked it so much, I'm keeping it here out of love.

It's either that or out at a bar hanging out with some friends. I'm not into crazy nightlife, I'd rather just chill and hang out with the people I enjoy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a third nipple (see above. and no, i wasn't kidding). And don't knock it. Its pretty sweet.

Also, that I have the hormonal drive and pop culture tastes of a teenage girl. It's something I've come to begrudgingly accept over the course of my life. I think I will always love teen dramas featuring shirtless dudes, and I'm not going to apologize for it. :)
You should message me if
You have something intelligent to say.

- or -

You're cute.

Does this make me sound like an asshole? In the words of Captain Murphy, "Yeah, right. Come on, I'm over this."

In fact, scratch all of the above. Only message me if you ARE Captain Murphy.
The two of us
