My self-summary
Hi!

I'm fairly-laid back, and try to live my philosophy of not giving a fuck. I enjoy spending time with my friends having conversations, watching movies, drinking, eating out, partying, and playing games. I also like going for long drives, walks, basically any opportunity to get out alone or with a good buddy or, hopefully, a significant other. I read a lot, watch movies, and occasionally go to see live music.

I'm attending school to become a paralegal, which is fun and interesting and occasionally super busy.

Friends of any kind are super important to me. I need them and need to be needed by them. Talking and processing our lives, as well as just enjoying each others company, is a good thing.

I enjoy watching movies, good, cult, and bad, some TV, reading, watching baseball, Red Sox in particular, playing board and other tabletop games, going out (or in) for eating or drinks, camping, good conversation, and road trips, all in no particular order. I love travel, but haven't had a chance to do it in forever. I enjoy concerts, but keep forgetting to stay up to date on when they happen.

I spend a lot of my time thinking. My job gives me a lot of time to spend in my head. Ideas are important to me, and while some may find it annoying or uninteresting, I analyze things that interest me very heavily, and need to discuss them. I generally find that the more I discover about something, the more interesting it becomes, and the more I need to talk about it, even if the discussion goes nowhere. (This doesn't mean I can't turn off my brain sometimes, but even idle diversions can be examined.) Basically, I find it difficult to get along with people who can't hold conversations and discussions.

I am contradicting myself, large, and I contain multitudes

tl;dr: I like eating drinking, movies with robots or monsters and shit, the Red Sox, popular songs, and books about, among other things, boats or UFOs. I like to share those interests. I believe I know the best places to get wings in Tucson.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a cab driver, in school to no longer be a cab driver, trying this whole goal setting ambition thing.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating, listening to people I care about, petting cats, getting anxious, being a friend, conversation, sharing emotions and secrets, cooking (some) things, faking being a polymath, driving. Also, Having had just about enough of this shit.

Also, starting exercise and running plans, doing that for a while, then falling off the wagon. If you're good at that too, maybe we can help each other get worse at failing. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
No idea. I have a difficult time conceiving of other people's concepts of me. My physical presence, I've been told. I'm 6', 240 lbs, so not for nothing I'm a bigger guy.

The six things I could never do without
1. Friends 2. New and interesting movies 3. The natural environment 4. My freedom of movement 5. Cats 6. Buffalo wings
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Freedom and responsibility. Delicious food, like cheeseburgers and ribs. Class issues. The importance of friends. Sex. Self-improvement and being happier. Spaceships. Gender and how we perform it and what it means. Wondering if I've wasted my life. Feminism. The problems of the application of privilege theory. How to fully assimilate my values into my thinking and reacting. The future. My cats. Corny jokes. Wanting to know how in the fuck I scored "Technopagan" on that stereotype test.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking a beer and either reading or watching something, playing a game, or futzing around online. Maybe going out. Pretty good chance I'm eating cheap buffalo wings.
You should message me if
You like Italian horror films and Chinese action movies. Or movies in general. You enjoy the idea of a night being drunken conversation debate and story-telling, and a night in watching a movie and sharing funny/stoopid stuff from the internet. You have tales of woe to share.

You want to make food/be made food/get something to eat.
