My self-summary
I'm a nurse at Vidant hospital, enjoying having a real person job. When I'm not too busy working anyway. I love the hell out of my job most days though. I'm doing this as long as my knees hold out.

I like music, and I usually move from one band obsession to another. I listen to a pretty wide variety, or at least I think I do, and I'm always open to new suggestions. I play guitar and sing for my own enjoyment. I'll mess around with pretty much anything you can play with a solo acoustic, as long as it's not, ya know, hard. Expect to be serenaded :p.

I do Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to stay fit and work through whatever has me stressed. Fight sports are pretty much the only ones I practice or pay any attention at all to, and it's still pretty rare for me to sit down and watch more than a few matches at a time. I'd like to get (and win) a fight in MMA eventually, just as a challenge to myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a Registered Nurse and trying to keep up with my CEU's. Playing video games when I'm bored. Working out when I'm not lazy.
I’m really good at
I'm a pretty good singer. Not professional, but I can kick some karaoke ass. I won Pack Idol at State, which was sort of weird and awesome at the same time.

I'm really just good at screwing with things till they work.

One day I'll be good at Jiu-jitsu, right now I suck.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm either really shy or a I won't shut up. I have a giant head that blots out the sun and destroys the livelihood of farmers. I crack jokes constantly, and little of what I say is ever serious.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Catch-22, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, To Kill a Mockingbird, Goodbye Blue Monday, Heat, good comics and manga like The Sandman, All Star Superman, Planetes, or Vinland Saga, anything Terry Pratchett ever wrote, The Hitch Hikers Guide Series, and sci-fi anthologies.

Movies: The Departed, Monty Pythons Search for the Holy Grail, The Big Lebowski, The Professional, Ronin, Ong-Bok, Ever After, Royal Space Force: Wings of Honneamise, Miyazaki's works. Documentaries like Jiro Dreams of Sushi and Restrepo. That's a decent cross section. I really don't watch that many movies. I have trouble sitting still unless it's engrossing.

Music: Too many to list. Alt Rock, Indie, and indie pop especially 90's and early 2000 stuff like Nirvana, Third Eye Blind, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Brand New. Modest Mouse just might be my all time favorite band, Passion Pit is amazing and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are just as awesome live as you'd expect them to be. I'm trying to branch out a little more, listening to more rap, more folk/bluegrass, and more electronic inspired music. So, bands like Dead Prez, Aesop Rock, Chvrches, Phoenix, and the like. More than anything though, music has to sound good. Bruce Springsteen is who I aspire to write like. Not necessarily sound like, but write like.

Food: I've turned into a little bit of a foodie since I started living on my own, and I'm turning into a beer snob since I turned 21. When I feel like doing the dishes, a love to experiment with new recipes. I've got growing cook book selection, so there's always something to try out. The latest experiments have been bread baking, and those are going slowly. In Greenville I love Cafe Duo and El Azador best of all, but mostly I just eat too much Cookout. It's right on the drive home. Sakura Express is on my list now too.
Six things I could never do without
My laptop, the internet, my guitar, my gi, my speakers, my pencil
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Chord changes, rhyming couplets, passing the guard, working out, Musculoskeletal Disorders, Coronary Artery Thrombosis
On a typical Friday night I am
At the gym training, Working, or just relaxing from the week with a cold beer and some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like the occasional chick flick, as long as they're clever and well plotted. Ever After is one of my favorite movies.
You should message me if
You want to hang out, eat some pizza, see a movie, and hit a karaoke bar. Greenville NEEDS a dedicated karaoke bar.

I actually prefer IM to messaging, the first one is always so awkward. Hit me at awkward_turtle22 on skype if you just want to chat about whatever is on your mind.
