My self-summary
This is the one thing everyone has problems with, which is ironic.
First off, I am the resident expert on myself! Any questions, comments, or donations, I'll take em! I'm kidding of course, I don't accept donations.

The term dynamic comes to mind, as does enigmatic. Loyal to a fault, in fact I am still friends with people I've known since I was four. Insatiably curious, exceedingly creative, and unabashedly honest. Sporadically goofy, and a bit of a nerd.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an aspiring writer, and am attending college to get a degree in Game Design and Interactive Storytelling. Most of the time I am working on short stories. Although I would love to become a novelist some time soon. To me the human condition is vast, and I often wonder what would the world be like if things were slightly different. So I spend a great deal of my time learning and coming up with stories. "We do not write to be understood. We write to understand." ~ C.S. Lewis.

Apart from that I try making jokes about anything as the situation arises... pining about space travel. Studying everything I can get my hands on. Because it's amazing how many points of view one set of eyes can reveal. Like those lazy afternoons where you stared at the clouds and saw a bunny, or a rhino, maybe even rollerskating dinosaur... who knows? We're all kind of like clouds when you think about it.
I’m really good at
Confusing people, if I had a nickle for every time I heard "you lost me." I wouldn't need to work.
I supposedly have a langauge all my own. Example, someone asked how I would handle negativity in day to day life. My response "Duck's back." As in I treat it like water on a duck's back.
Making obscure references to tv shows and movies...
Taking tests.
Pointing out plot holes.
Finding sinkholes while running... (better than the time I found one while on a riding mower.)
Getting song's stuck in people's heads, then laughing about it.
Making light out of bad situations.
Spouting nonsensical facts, like penguins are highly flammable...
The first things people usually notice about me
I'll have to poll the peanut gallery and get back to you on this matter... all I know is that those who stick around tell stories about me... So I must be doing something right...

Six things I could never do without
Air, got addicted to that stuff when I was really little.
A pen and paper, I once tried writing on the walls, ran out of space... also it's hard to get a wall published.
My dogs, "woof" means "throw the ball."
My humor, "I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral" ~ one week by Barenaked Ladies.
A good knife, grew up hiking and camping.
The freedom to question things, so while there is no such thing as a "stupid question," I found there are countless questions to get you in trouble.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The stories I'm working on, the little machines that could generate electricity that pop into my head.
The temporal repercussions created by time travel.
The duality of the human condition, that we could be so wholly wonderful both as individuals and a species, yet often choose to be lesser than we could be. Along with the persistent belief that with some encouragement, others might see this potential realized.
How does one grow "bored?" I truly do not understand, there's so much to learn, to do, to see. More than you do in a single life time, well unless you're Duncan McLeod...
What time is it where my baby brother is stationed, and if he's in the future why hasn't he delivered winning lotto numbers yet?
Why do so many of my friends wish they had clones of me?
Why do people demand to be treated like equals than act like children?
Why do people tell me to "behave" instead of good bye?
On a typical Friday night I am
...being atypical?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Once during a game of truth or dare I ended up streaking through the neighborhood while carrying a coffee table over my head... Still not sure why they wanted me to carry the coffee table. But the following week I found myself getting hit on by nearly every girl in the neighborhood...

At my best friend's wedding I forgot to get the ring from his mother, in my defense I was trying to keep him from peeping at the bridal party... It's a long story...

One time at work I had to tell a guest that the company is not responsible for any creatures, Imaginary, magical, or supernatural in origin... she was so unhappy at my unwillingness to deal with the "magical Mexican pigs" she called Corporate...

In high school, while the class was hiking through the woods that surrounded it. I was sent up a tree to see get our barrings, on the way down one of the branches snapped. I landed on a "nice" brier patch, my pants remained in the tree...

When I was small I used to draw and paint all the time. Till people started talking about making it a career. When I was an adolescent I started writing poetry and philosophical commentary. I was published at 16, and find I can only write poetry when I have a muse. Now I write stories, in hopes that I can entertain and enlighten.

This site has a tendency to make me feel like a square peg in a round hole. Which would bug me if I sincerely cared about trying to fit in...
You should message me if
If you don't mind the occasional nonsensical song, or movie reference.
If you can forgive me sporadic bouts of dancing like a happy idiot.
If you also see a "no shirt, no shoes, no service" sign as a long winded way of saying "pants optional."
If you enjoy the random intellectual discussion or debate.
If you are willing to trade stories...
The two of us
