My self-summary
I used to have a long self summary, but now its gone.
It was dumb I guess, just ask me if you have any questions.
I need a walking/jogging, kayaking, or motorcycling partner.

My name is Mike.
What I’m doing with my life
Generally gaining knowledge. I'm basically a free-form information sponge.
Saving up for adventures.
I’m really good at
Coming up with ideas, reading, conversing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My face/ whatever attempt at facial hair I have going on.

-House of Leaves (or anything else by MZD (Edit 6/24/15: Ugh never mind, "house of leaves" is great but MZD is a hack))

food:
anything Italian or Mexican.
and I'm a pescetarian now sometimes, so that's a thing(It would be easier if I lived on the coast).
The six things I could never do without
-friends
-computer
-music
-motorcycle jacket
-a good book
-my Galaxy Note 4
I spend a lot of time thinking about
lots of things: possible inventions, business ideas, how cool motorcycles are, the house I want to build, tabletop games, books I've read, what I want to do with my life, and how to get there.
On a typical Friday night I am
One of my favorite ways to spend a Friday night: Eating steamed blue crabs, and drinking weak beer with my brother and his ladyfriend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
pretty much anything as long as you ask me directly.
You should message me if
Just a quick note, I really don't mesage people first on here unless they rant about stuff I feel strongly about, or have a favorite books section as long as mine. You probably shouldn't message me if you don't read recreationally, a disdain for reading is a huge deal-breaker for me. Message me if you love books, and if you've read the Vorkosigan saga, be sure to message me, because I could talk about it for hours.

P.S.: I have a bad habit of hiding people on here for listing only highschool required reading as their favorite books. Admittedly 1984 is on my list of favorites, however it's the only book on my list that I was required to read.
