My self-summary
I'm at the odd junction in my life where I've long outgrown the childish party animal lifestyle that wants to live in a perpetual alcohol-induced haze, but I'm still resistant to attempts to drag me kicking and screaming into the realm of adulthood. I try to strike the constant, delicate balance between grownup responsibilities, like having a career and a mortgage, and recklessly pursuing new experiences and events. I fight a never-ending battle between my new love of a healthy, active lifestyle and my desire to geek-out on the couch with junk food and a zombie movie marathon. I'm still trying to find a balance between the young Punk rock kid wanting to stick it to the man and the grown adult who enjoys being able to own things.

I am, as Green Day said on their last good album, a walking contradiction, and the more I think about it, the more I enjoy the fact that even I'm incapable of really categorizing myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Splitting my time between working on a degree in the IT field and training for Spartan Race and Tough Mudder (there's that dichotomy again...). I'm either at Crossfit or out running the local trails 5-6 days a week. I'm trying to get more into yoga as a way to help bulletproof my joints against all the damage my other exercising does to them.

Nights that I'm not at work are usually spent going to a concert or relaxing at home with something to read. On my days off I like to travel and explore, assuming I've finished all my self-inflicted household chores. I
I’m really good at
-Buying books/movies/comics far faster than I can actually read and watch them.
-Finding random things at the Farmer's Market and then Googling for recipes to use them in.
-Going on crazy adventures at the drop of a hat.
-Debating politics and policies with such passion that you'd almost think they might be acted upon.
-Finding the seediest dive bar with the best drink specials.
-Dancing to ska music while stopped at a red light.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I’m a hoarder of books and special edition reprints, so I’m in need another bookcase or two. Between Amazon Prime and used bookstores, I always buy more than I can read. My Philosophy shelf is filled with the works of Zinn, Hitchens, Nietzsche, Plato, and sits next to the Science shelf where I keep Dawkins, NGT, and Kaku. A couple of shelves are devoted to whatever SciFi and Fantasy I have kicking around before trading it in for more, and my Absolute Edition: Sandman gets its own special place on the ends.

I’m not a big TV person and I hate trying to watch something one week at a time. I usually wait until the season (or series) is over so I can buy a boxed set and binge on a good show. The only things I can’t miss are The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight, Real Time, and Game of Thrones. I’m also way behind on The Walking Dead and try to catch Rock and Morty and Venture Brothers when I can.

Music? Hell, this should be its own section.
-Punk (NOFX, Bad Religion, The Dwarves, Anti-Flag, Lagwagon, Dropkick Murphys, Pennywise, Strung Out, Guttermouth)

-Ska (Mighty, Mighty Bosstones, Less Than Jake, Mustard Plug, The Toasters, Reel Big Fish)

-Hardcore (Rise Against, Boy Sets Fire, Alexisonfire, Thursday)

Rock (Alkaline Trio, Foo Fighters, Cake, The Thermals)

Random stuff like Tom Waits, Emile Autumn, The Yoshida Brothers, Florence and the Machine, The Black Mages

And I have hours of female-vocal bands (Nightwish, Evanescence, Epica, The Distillers, Picture Me Broken, Icon For Hire, Amaranthine, Lacuna Coil…)

If you're a fan of extremely silly and entertaining live bands, like Peelander-Z and The Aquabats, we can definitely be friends.
Six things I could never do without
Good food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's still left to do with this life. So much to do and see.
On a typical Friday night I am
Cleaning up from the gym before heading somewhere new for dinner, then meeting up with friends later.

Recently it's more "bored online because I'm stuck at work" which I find offensive since my boss doesn't seem to realize I can accomplish that just fine somewhere else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate most team sports. Football, baseball, basketball, soccer, all of them. I just find them extremely boring. Lately I've even begun to find MMA less entertaining to watch, unless I'm coaching one of my fighters.
You should message me if
You're looking to get out and live a little. Or a lot. If you need someone to play bodyguard at a show. Looking to try some new restaurant and want good dinner conversation. Need to hide a body (As long as you have a good spot already picked out). Want someone to listen to your new theory about why the world didn't end on December 21st (I really, really love hearing those)
The two of us
