My self-summary
I'm at a serious crossroads in my life right now, due to several events that have happened in the last few years. I'm a very independent person & strive to stay that way, although it's sometimes been a struggle. While not looking for my next great love at the moment, I'd like to meet a girl with whom I can socialize & share my inner thoughts. She would only need to be willing to accept that a) I have a physical disability & it's a part of who I am, & b) I'm still attached to my family because it's become a very small one & the need for us to help each other get things done is much greater.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently studying to become a computer programmer. Doing it all completely online, too. I spend a lot of time at my computer as it is...I figure, why not do something worthwhile with it?

In the fall of 2012, I stumbled upon the hobby of critiquing some of our local eateries. If you're lucky enough, you can find me in downtown or midtown at least one day a week trying some sort of new food. I'm not afraid to try anything...a palate is something you develop over a period of time! I am not a serious food blogger at the moment, but I never shy away from giving a friendly recommendation.
I’m really good at
Proofreading. I know it may be annoying when someone corrects your spelling or grammar, but it counts for a lot in the working world!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and my ability to laugh and make them laugh in response. If it's early enough in the morning, you'll notice me making a mean sausage-and-cheese breakfast burrito. Don't fret, I'll make one for you too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Rant Zone, More Information Than You Require, Eat the Rich, Ceo of the Sofa, Dark Half, Needful Things, Misery, The Firm, The Client, The Street Lawyer, Complete Guide to Guys. I have a very full bookcase, though, and these are just a few. Long novels never seem to get enough attention from me.

Movies: Men in Black, Spider-Man, Pulp Fiction, Blues Brothers (the original 1980 release is the better of the two), X-Men, Mystery Men, A Mighty Wind, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Get Shorty, The Onion Movie, Napoleon Dynamite, Planes Trains and Automobiles. I have to admit I've truly fallen behind the curve technology-wise, & have more VHS tapes than DVDs in consequence. Slowly yet surely, I'll build up a collection. Someday I'll even figure out my Blu-Ray player, too!

Music: R.E.M., Nickelback, Dave Matthews Band, Smash Mouth, Depeche Mode, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Linkin Park, Eve 6, Rammstein, Stone Temple Pilots. My music collection is even more diverse than my book collection. I'll listen to a little of everything if I'm given enough inspiration.

TV: Grimm, Family Guy, Hawaii 5-0, CSI: Cyber, Zoo, Bob's Burgers, Big Bang Theory, L&O:SVU, Blacklist, Houdini & Doyle, Robot Chicken, Rick & Morty, Scorpion, Criminal Minds, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, NCIS:LA, Person of Interest

Food: I love eating out when the opportunity presents itself (it's part of my hobby noted above). When all else fails, I can microwave something like nobody's business. If someone really twists my arm to try out a new restaurant, I can't say no. Healthy stuff exists on menus...you just have to find it and choose wisely.
The six things I could never do without
My personal goals
A way to express myself
My family's encouragement
Someone to share a good time with
...& just to be slightly materialistic, a good CD to listen to and my Internet connection.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...leaving the Sacramento area & going somewhere new for a fresh start in my life. Unfortunately, my plans to do this have never quite come to fruition.
On a typical Friday night I am
Given my goal of obtaining a real computer programming job one day, most likely studying. I can always afford a break, though!
You should message me if
1) You're willing to roll the dice & take a chance at getting to know me
2) If the mood strikes you!
