My self-summary
Hey, I'm Chris! I know, my username is terrible. It's the medical definition of chills, or goosebumps. I don't know why I thought it would be a good idea, but whatever.

Anyway, I'm pretty simple, I guess. If I was a shampoo, I probably wouldn't sting your eyes. But I have a lot of interests. Not hobbies, interests. "Hobbies cost money, interests are quite free." -George Carlin.
I’m really good at
I've always been pretty artistically inclined. Lately I've been really interested in more physical activities, even though I completely suck at physical activities, soccer being the only sport I was ever good at or cared about.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm trying to say anything but "My eyes." (Sigh) ...but it's usually my eyes. Someone once told me they liked my ears, though. That's cool, because I can wiggle my ears. If you're into that sorta thing.

I've also been told repeatedly by numerous people that I look like Tyson Ritter. I've also heard Jared Leto and Cillian Murphy. I only wish I looked like any of them, but hey. You saw it, now you can't unsee it!

I can't really give a list of bands that I like. I never thought I'd be saying this, but I really just like songs anymore. Someone help.

The music I listen to is usually nostalgic and cinematic. Bittersweet and instrumental. Lots of 80's stuff and baroque classical. Cheesy power metal, too. So, whatever that is.My first CD ever was the Mortal Kombat soundtrack.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have anterior pelvic tilt...
