My self-summary
The hardest part about this section is that I don't know what to lead with. Theoretically the first thing I put will be perceived as the most important (like the list of ingredients on the back of a box of oatmeal). Anyway, here goes nothing:

I'm pretty laid-back. I don't get particularly riled up about things I feel I can't control, or "excited" about things in general, good or bad, if that makes sense). I can get along with pretty much anyone. I'm non-confrontational, to say the least.

I'm not particularly out-going. By that, I mean that I'm not one to go out exploring by myself, but am willing to venture out for/with good company and friends.

I am not religious, but I am not against the idea that God (in some shape or form) exist.

I hate politics. I don't like talking about them, I don't listening to people talk about them. To me, it all sounds like children bickering about who's Dad could beat up who...or something else as trivial (and if someone could present an argument as to why politics are important and that I should care, I would be willing to listen and could, potentially, be convinced to see things in a different light).

Despite my earlier claim of not getting "excited", I sometimes lose my temper. I am adept at keeping it in check. As I stated before, I am not a violent person. I can sometimes be over-emotional when I am REALLY stressed, but more often than not, I can seem entirely reserved and/or emotionless. I'm really a nice guy, I promise. (Yep...that didn't sound like something a serial killer would say.)
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, I have a job, but I am close to being "in between opportunities". (If you ask, I'll explain that further.) When I'm not working, I'm playing video games, mostly fighting games. If not playing video games, I'm watching other people play video games. If I'm not watching other people playing video games, I'm probably asleep. I'd like to do more things, but I'm usually too tired to go out by myself, but I like to hang out with friends, either at someone's home, or at a restaurant or bar.
I’m really good at
I wouldn't say I'm "really good" at anything, but I usually give it my best effort. I like to think I'm good at being helpful, granted you might have to tell me numerous times what to do to be helpful and/or effective.

Actually, I am really good at one thing: forgetting things (which I forgot to mention when I first filled this out).

I have been told that I have a habit of saying the right thing at the right time. I'm also really good at saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. (Can one say the wrong thing at the right time, or the right thing at the wrong time?)

I'm actually good at one other thing, but it's not something I feel I openly state in the polite company of the Internet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm black, I wear glasses, and am bald. People often say I have an air of authority about me. I seem extremely serious, and for the most part, I am, but once you get to know me, I can be kind of silly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: The Walking Dead, Leverage, Being Human (I've watched the US version; still have to get around to the UK version), Doctor Who, Major Crimes, Criminal Minds, Raising Hope, Portlandia ("Put a bird on it!"), Parks and Recreation, I'm starting to get back into anime and cartoons such as Kill la Kill, Fate/Zero, Adventure Time, and The Regular Show.

Movies: Indiana Jones trilogy, Star Wars trilogy, Black Dynamite, The Usual Suspects, Brick, The Avengers, Ghostbusters, Brick (Honestly, I'll watch pretty much anything and will enjoy it to some degree)

Music: Telefon Tel Aviv, Eliot Lipp/Pretty Lights, Alice In Chains, Nine Inch Nails, N.E.R.D., MF Doom, Astrud Gilberto, Bebel Gilberto, Billie Holiday, Daft Punk, DJ Shadow, Yoko Kanno, Federico Aubele, Gorillaz, Johnny Cash, Justice, L'Altra, Lindsay Anderson, Pearl Jam, PJ Harvey, A Perfect Circle, Prefuse 73, Radiohead, Rage Against The Machine, John Hughes/Slicker, Thievery Corporation, Thursday, Tool, Utada Hikaru, Victor Bermon, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Glen Hansard, various video game soundtracks (seriously, the majority of what I listen to is music straight from a video game or is somehow video game-related)

Food: Asian (fried rice, in particular), pasta (spaghetti, in particular), Turkey sandwiches, chicken (mostly grilled), Seafood (I love shrimp), bagels (anything made of bread, really)
Six things I could never do without
Video games (may sound childish, but they are very important to me)
My health
Hope for the future
The Internet (my greatest source of entertainment and information)
Reliable transportation
The ground beneath my feet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Fighting games
Where I'm going to be when I "grow up"
Why I haven't graduated from college yet
"How am I going to pay for [insert the name of something that costs money]?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at home playing video games or watching movies, or hanging out with friends, probably playing video games or watching movies (I play video games a lot, if you haven't realized that yet).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I might be mentally or emotionally unstable. I sometimes have periods of sadness or emotionlessness. I've never been diagnosed with anything.
You should message me if
You like to play video games and want someone to play with. Or there's anything about me or this profile you find interesting or attractive.

You didn't just fill out the "The most private thing I'm willing to admit" section with "Well, if I put it out here, it wouldn't be private anymore, would it?" That's not original or interesting. I feel like people think the reply has to be sexual in nature. I feel like that question is meant to express something that someone might not know about you or be able to discern just by looking at you.
