My self-summary
Alright, I'll rewrite this again.

How to describe me...Hmmm....This is a difficult question, even though I have put a lot of thought into it. I guess that's one part of me - very introspective. If you've seen School for Scoundrels, I'd probably fit into that class pretty well (even if you haven't seen it I would, but if you haven't seen it then don't think I mean that I'm a scoundrel 'cause I'm not).

I'm relatively intelligent, however that doesn't stop me from doing some pretty unintelligent things. If you know the difference, I'd say I'm intelligent but not wise (once again, not sure why I made that a conditional statement...I'm that way whether you know the difference or not. I'll try to stop doing that now). BTW, in case you didn't recognize it, the parenthesized remarks above are a somewhat feeble attempt on my part to be funny. If you get to know me, you'll find that I really am funny sometimes (other times just smile and pretend that I was funny and we'll get along fine :) ).

I think I'll take a moment now to explain my 3 adjectives (along with the 3 adverbs I threw in so they'd be more accurate).

Amateurishly Artistic
I like to draw. I don't do it very often, and I pretty well suck at it, but I still enjoy doing it. I have several books about drawing, and I go through occasional periods of time where I try to improve my skills, but usually I end up frustrated with my lack thereof and so take a break. I know this one is misspelled, but I can't fit one more letter into the box, so I dropped the letter least likely to be noticed :)

Cautiously Daring
I enjoy taking some types of risks. For example, I ride my motorcycle, I've sky dived, and I've fought in a kung fu competition. But in most things I'm pretty cautious. I have no examples of this. Sorry.

Shyly Outgoing
I'm shy. I try to be outgoing though. One time I spent 45 minutes searching a grocery store for whipped cream before finally giving up and asking someone. Who would think frozen foods for whipped cream? It's supposed to be in the refrigerator, not the freezer! I'm not sure how that story supports this adjective, but I felt like including it.

Unrelated note - I thought I'd be cool by putting style attributes on the html I was allowed to use in this section, but it stripped all of it out. Oh well, guess my profile will just have to look like everyone else's.

I am amaturishly artistic, cautiously daring, and shyly outgoing
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to live it. Must not be doing a bad job either, just checked and I still have a pulse! :)

Most of my live is taken up with 2 things - sleeping and working. Sleeping accounts for about 33% (maybe a little more), and work about 25%. That leaves me with 42% to account for. Well, it'd probably be safe to say that 20% is spent transitioning between those two states (ie, showering, driving, etc), so actually only 22% to account for.

Sometimes I try running and kung fu. I tend to read quite a bit. I just started to learn Italian. I'm traveling to Italy in a week (by the time you read this I'll most likely already be there or already have been and gone, 'cause it's not likely that I'll update this again for a while).
I’m really good at
Everything. No really, I'm awesome. Ok, maybe if I've never done a thing, I won't be very good at it, but if I want to be good at it then I will be. So I guess there are some things that I'm not "really good at", however, those things aren't very important (to me anyway) so they have been implicitly excluded from "everything".
The first things people usually notice about me
Never really asked anybody, so I'm just kinda guessing here. Probably that I'm pretty slender. Maybe that I have light brown hair, or blue eyes. I don't have boobs (being a guy and all), so I'm positive it's not that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - The Eyes of the Dragon(Stephen King), The Sparrow(Mary Russell), The Cookoos Egg(Cliff Stole), The DaVinci Code(Dan Brown), almost anything by Dean Koontz, Robert Jordan, Terry Goodkind, R.A. Salvadore, Terry Brooks.

Movies - The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally, Pirates of the Carribean, The Young Master, The Legend of Drunken Master, Office Space, Go.

Music - Fatboy Slim, Paul Oakenfold, NiN, Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne, John Michael Montgomery, Black Eyed Peas.

Food - Lasagna, Manicotti, Chinese(not seafood though), Enchiladas, almost anything spicy.
Six things I could never do without
Sometimes I think I'm pretty good at privation (didn't put it my "good at" list, didn't really seem worth mentioning), so I don't know that I've got six things that I could *never* do without ('cept the standard generic answers like air, water, food, etc). I think I'll have to change this to six things that I don't like to do without.

1) Cuddling 2) Something good to read 3) People to hang out with (ie, Friends/Family) 4) Something new to learn 5) My motorcycle 6) Some kind of test/puzzle.

Note - I numbered them but it's not an ordered list (except cuddling probably does go at the top of the it's an ordered list of two things, but the second thing has five subthings which are not ordered).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the thought of talking to someone I don't know causes me so much anxiety when actually talking to someone I don't know isn't difficult at all. How this extends even to people I know.
On a typical Friday night I am
Quite often I'm just home reading. Occasionally hanging out at someone's house with friends or having friends over to hang out. Also occasionally at the bar or the movies or playing pool or bowling or something. Currently I'm on a bowling league every other Friday night, so 50% makes typical. So, there you have it: on a typical Friday night I'm bowling...Unless it's the other week, then I'm just about anywhere :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a teddy bear named Anne. That's pretty private, right? I'm pretty open really, probably a better question would be what private things wouldn't I be willing to admit here...but of course, I can't very well answer that one here, now can I? :)
You should message me if
I think you should make your own decision on this. Be forewarned however that I don't always respond. I'm much more likely to respond if you have questions or at least a direction for a conversational response.
The two of us
