My self-summary
Afternoon! My name is John. UF grad. I enjoy going to shows, dive bars, and new restaurants, and I don't mind a bit of a hike to get to any of them. I exercise 6 days a week, on average. It's usually a mix of HIIT cardio stuffs and weight training. I do enjoy yoga in the park, but I usually only go when I've got an accomplice. I spend a good amount of time quasi-binge watching new TV shows, and reading. I suppose I've recently realized that I enjoy picking out books that have been adapted to movies, devouring the book, and then seeing how the movie stacks up. Most recently, I've done this with Gone Girl, The Martian, Great Gatsby, All the Pretty Horses, and The Hunger Games. I recently was gifted my first Kindle (boxes of books are darn heavy to move!) and I've started on A Song of Ice and Fire.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a member of a bi-weekly booze and book club that meets in St. Pete. Some of our recent reads include: The Stranger, The Martian Chronicles, Ready Player One, Ghost World, and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. I'm currently looking to start a Tampa/Brandon chapter.
OKCupid says to tell them what I'm doing day-to-day for this one. Well, I work from home, so I spend a lot of time with my two cats. I drive out to the Dunedin area quite often because that's where my good friends live. Also, downtown Dunedin has really grown. You should see it!
I enjoy beach days, which may include reading or drinking on the beach. I really do exercise quite a bit, but I'd like to get more outdoors with it. I have a bicycle, but getting a road bike and finding a group to ride with regularly would be swell!
I’m really good at
Communicating with cats.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Hey! You look like Michael Cera." I don't care; I embrace it!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I started out my obsession with fiction in the dystopian/post-apocalyptic genre. Some of my favorites there are: 1984, On the Beach, We, Anthem, Oryx and Crake, and Brave New World.
I've read the majority of what Kurt Vonnegut and Chuck Palahniuk have to offer. The Road, All the Pretty Horses, and Blood Meridian were all really great, and I intend to read more Cormac McCarthy novels in the future.
I'd recently decided to try some Stephen King novels: The Long Walk, The Mist, Under the Dome, and 11/22/63.
Heck, here are a few more: House of Leaves, The Raw Shark Texts, Childhood's End, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, Blindness, Ishmael, The Rebel, Ender's Game, Flowers for Algernon.

Movies: Momentum, The Hunger Games, Brazil, Resident Evil series (:3), Reno 911, The Outsiders, American Psycho, The Rules of Attraction, Fight Club, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Juno, Superbad, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, True Grit, Moon, The Hitchhiker's Guide, Choke. Anything with Sam Neil is usually a good time!

Shows (in order of importance): Lost, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, Mr. Robot, Mad Men, The Killing, House of Cards, The Wire, 13 Reasons Why, Stranger Things, ATHF, Sealab 2021, Archer, Bob's Burgers, Game of Thrones (of course), The Fall, Luther, The Newsroom, The Wire, Eastbound & Down, Flight of the Conchords.
Actively looking for someone to binge watch The West Wing with.
Oh, and it's been awhile, but I've got some anime under my belt: Gungrave, Trigun, Berserk, FLCL, Hellsing, Outlaw Star, Sword Art Online, Neon Genesis, Blue Gender.

Music: Ha, music. Right? This year, I was lucky enough to see some of my favorites live, here in Tampa. First, there was The Gas Light Anthem and Modest Mouse at The Gasparilla Music Festival. In the same week, Neutral Milk Hotel played solo, and The Pixies and TV on the Radio were at Big Guava. The Mountain Goats came to The Orpehum, but I missed them (sad day). I'm hoping to catch them when they come back on February. Anyone care to join?

Food: Burritos. Fish and Chips. Sweet Potato Fries. A lot of quorn and soy-type stuffs.
Six things I could never do without
Gin. Reddit. Uber. Cats. Secular humanism. My Steam game library (almost 2,000 titles in it, huzzah!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The unbearable lightness of being. Okay, that's a fib. I haven't even read that book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Before I had a Kindle, I would always watch the Bravo network while on the elliptical at my complex's rinky-dink gym. It's so hard to pin down a consistent time to catch reruns of Vanderpump Rules.
You should message me if
You enjoy reading, adventuring, binge-watching TV shows, or have pets. Cats are great, but it's always nice to be able to visit with dogs.
The two of us
