My self-summary
FIRST: don't send a like, send a message.

My name is Shane.
I have lived in WA my whole life and yes I love the rain.

I grew up in a family of cooks, basically if you came through the door on thanksgiving day without something that you cooked from scratch, you were stopped at the door. My original dreams were to be a better cook than my grandma.
Yeah right.
So I went to culinary school, graduated, worked in the industry for the past 7 yrs now, and I would like to be done with it.
Even with the $15 - hr law coming into view, I can't support a family (someday) on that kind of salary.

I joined the US Air Force on Sept 19, 2014. ASM > Aircraft Structural Maintenance was going to be my job. But half way through BMT, during a training exercise, I learned that I was a conscientious objector based on the fact that "I couldn't pull the trigger based on orders alone".
I was ELS SEP. , came home, and started thinking of what to do next.

I grew up without knowing who my father was until I was 13, and even then I realized that he wasn't much of a father to have left his responsibilities. I do still love him though, even if he is not a christian.
I do think of it as a positive thing for me though, because now I have something to aim for. To be a better dad than a lot of guys out there today who don't take responsibility for there actions and who refer to themselves as men.
And also to maybe be a father figure to a kid out there who never had a father either, so they don't have to grow up without one like I did. Just to hear a child say "i love you too daddy" to me, that would just melt me.
What I’m doing with my life
learning Japanese, researching colleges and coder-camps, looking for a new church now that mars-hill is no more.
I’m really good at
cooking, baking, trying new things, and knowing when to shut-up and listen (very important for guys)
The first things people usually notice about me
my height, I really wish it wasn't something that caused intimidation in society, but I do like being able to reach things on the top shelf for people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: the queen of fats, the end of food, the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, Ender's game, random "for dummies" books and random cookbooks

Movies: Babette's Feast, Big Night, Black Hawk Down, Food Inc., listening, chronicle, Iron man, Kate and Leopold, chocolat, district B13

Music: I like all kinds of music except most western/country and most rap/ hip hop. (i.e. if they swear every other word, its not music, it's turettes)

Food: just about everything... except cherries and oysters. it's a taste thing. I definitely eat things that are not "American" though, like tripe and blood sausage.
The six things I could never do without
good food
my laptop
my family
a purpose in life
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future wife and kids.
leaving my comfort zone.
what to learn next.
On a typical Friday night I am
skypeing my mother, playing LoL, watching a movie
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
never been on a real date
never went to prom (homeschooled)

but then again, I'm not like most guys.
don't like the taste of beer (I'm a hard cider guy)
don't play or watch any sports
and I've never been to or never want to go to a "strip club"

so, there are + and - to me.
You should message me if
you don't smoke or do 420, you love god, you don't own cats or are willing to sacrifice your cats for love (allergies, sorry) and you believe that chivalry is not dead.
