Hi! I'm Stephen. I'm 26 years old, I work in security and working on getting back in school. I have a six year old daughter that lives with her mother. I try to keep my love life seperate, so if anything comes from this site, chances are you won't meet her. I really have to trust you in order for you to meet her, and trust doesn't come easy these days. Though I do carry my lantern, because "I'm looking for an honest (wo)man".
I am terribly introverted. If I like you I could be around you 98% of my free time, but I don't like guests, I don't like groups, and I don't like get-togethers. I said it three times three different ways, I can't express it any other way. I prefer one on one company, and don't mind silence. This isn't to say I'm unable to be around people. I tend to get along with everyone, and I keep my opinions to myself, unless I want to have fun, and don't care if I upset someone. My work is solitary work, so I get a lot of introvert time there.
My biggest weakness is my apathy. I honestly don't give a fuck. The entire time I've had this account I've never written a proper bio, because I didn't /feel/ like it. I have a terrible habit of brushing things that might seem important to people, because I don't really care about them. Holidays are a good example. My cynicism and nihilistic point of views stems from that, I think.....
But that's me in a nutshell. Consult my questions, or better yet, me, if you have any questions!
I'm currently working in security, 45 hours condensed Fri.-Mon. in the evening/nighttime. That gives me a /lot/ of free time, that I am currently filling with reading. Jeeeesus, I haven't read this much since high school, but frankly, I love it.
I am currently trying to pay off my student loans so I can continue with my education. I'm trying to achieve a bachelor's in philosophy and work my way up to a specific philosophy doctorate. Who knows at this point what that will be, lol. Like I said, teeny increments.
I spend my free time usually on the internet, listening to music or NPR. I enjoy television shows and movies a bit too much, so I usually only do that as my physical social outlet to prevent me from watching too much. Not that the internet is too much better, is it? Lol. I also cycle, and only drive when it's cold, and commuting.
Books: Sci fi, Fantasy, Non-Fiction. I am currently reading the Ender Series, and am on the third, Xenocide. Great series, but it's getting redundant. Not to mention the author is a homophobic asshole. But I try to judge an artist by their art, not their person.
Edit: I finished the series, and I still recommend it. But I took a break to re-read slaughterhouse - five and am now working my way through Wool.
Second Edit: Finished Wool, and the rest of the Silo series. And holy crap is it great! Re-read 1984, and am now working on Contact, Carl Sagan's non-fiction novel.
Film: Japanese films, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Slice of Life, Comedy, Anime, Specific Horror. I finally got around to watching Stranger Things. I really really really really didn't want to like it. But I love Stephen King, and it had to have been inspired by him.
Music: hip hop and it's many many varients, rock, classical, and very little country. TMBG is and always will be on top of that list though. I have been listening to a lot of Blues Traveler and Blind Melon lately, cuz those dudes have so much emotion in their voice it's fucking crazy. But for real. I can go on for days about how brilliant They Might Be Giants are.
Just discovered Screaming Females, and I'm in love.
Food: delicatessen-esq sandwichs but the only bread I eat is rhy or pumpernickel, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, and good ol' burgers and potatoes. I've been really craving a pastrami on rye from Shapiro's lately....
my ability to think (if I ever lose my mind, I hope death quickly follows)
I'm trying to cut back though.
Seriously. Do it. It's the quickest way to my heart.
But I will be brutally honest.
...you are interested in any type of relationship, and think we'd click.
...you think I'm rad, and wanna chat. I don't care where you live if you wanna be my friend.
...you read my "I spend a lot of time thinking about" response and you want to acquiesce to my request.
