My self-summary
I just realized I haven't done much to update this in the past few months. The thing that's most difficult about self-summary is that you have to bring out the qualities about yourself you feel are most appealing, without appearing vain. Vanity isn't really my flaw. I'm stubborn, a smartass at the best of times, I'm proud, often to a fault.

I'm not particularly laid-back, I can be fairly relaxed about some things. However, if I care about something, I care far too much to be relaxed about it. Although this probably causes more stress than it might otherwise, I think that the point of my life is not to avoid stress. I would focus on sedimentary rocks if that were the case, or bad geology related humor. I'm sure that there's a market for the latter in some corner of the world.

I've spent the past eight months trying to make myself into the person that I felt I needed to be, unfortunately it seems as though every time I improve on something, that I become more deeply involved in it and set my goals higher. So I don't think I'm the person I want to be, yet, but I think that it's a good thing, to always strive for that.

Well this isn't the best self-summary, but it does help illustrate at least a little about me, if you want to know more, you can ask me.
What I’m doing with my life
Quite a bit actually. I'm working towards a pie in the sky dream right now, and doing other things to support that. If you'd like to know more about my goals you'll have to ask, they're sort of esoteric and unusual though.
I’m really good at
Not filling out these essays, apparently. I've still got the reigning high score on Muppet Party Cruise in my family. I make a better door than a window, although that might not be saying much. At one point I managed to eat an entire order of the spiciest wings at Quaker Steak and Lube. I also defeated my sister in a competition to see who could watch the worst TV show for the longest, and I tied in a competition to listen to the Theme from Dig Dug all night while working. Well those aren't all the things I'm good at, just the important ones.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know, why don't you tell me?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like far too many books, movies, shows, bands, and foods to actually list all of them. I think that's probably the trend as opposed to the reverse though. I guess I can try to give an idea of what I tend to enjoy most.

For books, I read a lot. When I was younger (early teens or so) I read mostly fictional geeky stuff. For example: Tolkein, David Eddings, C.S. Lewis, Heinlein, Asimov, Orson Scott Card, and dozens of much crappier science fiction and fantasy authors (whose names I don't remember I probably would if I reread their works though). When I was in college (the first time), I had a serious crisis of religion and I read a huge amount of philosophy and theology. I tend to enjoy both to this day, although I don't read nearly as much as I used to.

Let's see with movies, I like almost everything. I watch movies that are bad, sometimes because they are bad. For example I've become increasingly fond of MST3K, although sadly I have willingly watched some of the movies they lampoon outside of MST3K. I love watching popcorn movies in theaters, like Transformers (which if you can ignore the plot and the dialogue, and the acting is actually pretty okay). I missed summer movies for a couple summers and really got into watching them after. I also like serious works of art type movies, for example Citizen Kane (which is sadly the standard answer), also things of social or political significance.

For shows, it varies, I tend to be pickier than I am with movies (probably due to the time commitment), but I tend to be picky about weird things. I can watch anything from Sitcoms to serious works and enjoy it, but I don't enjoy all sitcoms or serious works.

I have really diverse musical tastes. When I was younger I used to listen to mostly heavy metal and some punk. Then when I was deployed and listening to music at work I got tired of it and started to spread out more. Like with TV shows I am picky though, I can name songs and artists I like from almost every genre, but I don't like all artists or songs in any genre so I have a wide breadth of styles I listen to, but not as wide breadth of artists.
Six things I could never do without
I can't do without air to breath, but I don't know want to go without having my breath taken away either. I can't do without food to eat, but I don't want to not feel butterflies in my stomach. I can't do without warmth, but I don't want to not feel somebody warm next to me someday. I can't do without firm ground to stand on, but I want to be swept off my feet. I can't do without gravity but sometimes I just want to float ten feet off the ground. I can't do without sleep, but I want to find somebody to stay up with.

I've learned that I can live without love, I can breath, eat, stay warm, stand on firm ground, sleep, work, play, all of those things. But I've learned that I don't want to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about nothing at all, not that I'm not thinking, but I'm thinking about all kinds of things that aren't too terribly important or meaningful. I would like to say I spend a lot of time thinking about how to be a better person, and I do, but I also spend a lot of time thinking about who would win in a fight between Green Lantern and the Hulk, why coffee places seem incapable of using the words: "Small, Medium, and Large", why Pittsburgh leaves up road work signs when there isn't any, and a great deal of other things that qualify as nothing of consequence.
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends on the Friday, I could be watching a ballgame. Going to some kind of dance related event. Going to a gym, watching a movie, relaxing at home. Sleeping, going to the movies, dancing, working out, relaxing, drinking, or maybe going out on with an amazing lady.
You should message me if
If you want to go dancing with me, or watch old movies, read books together, go out together, or stay in together. I'm not looking for something brief or transient.
The two of us
