My self-summary
So, time to update! I'm just going to put myself out there.

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!
What I’m doing with my life
A whole bunch in teeny increments!

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.
I’m really good at
I'm going to take a minute to thank our sponsor. Casey Roberts. A local artist and all around "cool guy". He's my uncle, so I might be biased. His art is phenomenal and when he's got his studio open, during First Fridays when hes in town, it would be a good idea to go in and buy everything. www.wildernessoverload.com
The first things people usually notice about me
I honestly don't know. I wouldn't mind being told, I just never ask.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Waaaaaay too many to list, so I'll just list genres, and what I've recently been into.

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....
The six things I could never do without
my phone
internet
beverages
my ability to think (if I ever lose my mind, I hope death quickly follows)
solitude
I'm trying to cut back though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Shit, you name it? Thinking is kinda what I do. Toss me an idea, I'll ponder, and tell you what I think about it.

Seriously. Do it. It's the quickest way to my heart.
But I will be brutally honest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. Guaranteed. Tuesday is my Friday, and I am typically I will be home or running errends. If you've made it this far in my profile, you'd have realized by now I'm a boring person.
You should message me if
... you want to! I'm trying to start sending messages first, so don't be shy.

...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.
