My self-summary
When I was a kid I didn't have a lot of friends so one summer my parents sent me to space camp. It was pretty cool, but I didn't make many friends there except for a robot named Jinx. We hung out a bit and I told him my dream of going to space someday. Later, during shuttle test burn, Jinx logged into the main computer and created a situation that forced the shuttle to launch into space. We ran into some issues because the shuttle wasn't stocked for a mission but eventually we made it back home safe.

Okay, thats basically a lie because really thats just the plot summary to the movie space camp. But if you found it interesting, you should check it out.

I consider myself to be an atheist, but if you really pressed me about it, I'd have to admit I'm technically an agnostic, which I think most atheists are, but then I heard Stephen Colbert ask "Isn't an agnostic just an atheist without balls?" So I'm an atheist.

I went to bible college because I wanted to understand why I believed what I believed. I left two years later having lost my faith (and my virginity) and spent the next few years coming to terms with that. It was painful and frustrating, but going through that process made me a better human being.

After that I spent the rest of my twenties owning crappy cars, having fun, watching bad tv, and making admirable but ultimately meaningless contributions to my 401k. I also spent a fair amount of time dicking around on the internet, which actually ended up working out pretty well as I was somehow able to parlay that into a software developer job.
What I’m doing with my life
You know I'm livin' it! :D
I’m really good at
Wood working, fixing *most* car problems, and practicing plumbing without a license (if you are the plumbing police that was a joke!)

I dropped out of both high school and college so I honestly don't know how I even function in this world. But I do work in a technical role that requires a bachelors degree. I think I'm good at the autodidactic/jazz approach to learning and just awful at academic learning.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm really easy to get along with. I come from a big family; we moved around a lot when I was growing up. I'm a middle child which means, I'm not sure what to be honest! How does that work anyway, older siblings are supposed to be responsible, and younger kids are the whacky tabbacy circus clowns...

Anyway, I'm a very friendly and like-able person. I make friends fast; if I'm out on my lonesome I'll befriend another group no problem!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've always had a soft spot for the movie Tremors.

Books are great. I read, often. I don't particularly feel like listing out all of my favorites - just trust that I'm well-read.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to shoehorn the word 'inability' into a sentence.

The etymology of words and idioms.

I also flirt with this idea that maybe I can find a plot of land in the middle of nowhere, reject capitalism outright, and just go totally off the grid. Solar power, rain collectors, weekly delivery of "Heat and Serve" meals. Not for political or environmental reasons, which at least would have an air of nobility; but because of the challenge of it, and the pride of being independent and self sufficient. And frankly, I think it sounds cool.
That, or on a sailboat. Sailboat or cabin. 'Cabin' sounds like it would have spiders. Sailboat or yurt.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do get a little sad when I go to one of those really big multi day outdoor music festivals that's in a field with a ton of porta potties and food venders; and I look down and see all the grass being trampled into the earth by a herd of oblivious half drunk political science majors (no offense). I realize it's insanely trivial, but I can't help thinking 'what did the grass do to deserve this?'
You should message me if
You are strong and are comfortable in who are. You value humility.
