My self-summary
I'm somewhat spontaneous and idealistic- but realistically know that I can't completely change the world. I'm generally happy without being annoyingly cheerful. I have a strange sense of humor and I'm pretty laid back. I enjoy having a drink with my friends, reading an old classic or scientific literature, attempting to do something creative (build things, annoy the neighbors with my guitar, or make a mess with some paint), and listening to music constantly. I can fix cars and make a mean lasagna. Don't mess with an angry lasagna!
What I’m doing with my life
Growing up and finding balance. Originally, hailing from Ohio - I've lived in DC for 5 years, work at a university, and plan to pursue an MBA in 2015.

While I'm very serious about my career, I'm just as focused with my personal life. I surround myself with good people, and I certainly like to let my hair down. And I like to use idioms.
I’m really good at
Fixing computers and mechanical things, cooking, learning, listening, being funny, procrastinating, making friends, making conversation, and teaching one-on-one. Telling embellished narrative stories- think Austen Burroughs lite.
The first things people usually notice about me
Often the first thing I hear from strangers is "Are you from Kentucky?" No, I'm not from Kentucky, but my father was from KY. Oddly, the accent skipped a generation.
I have a fantastic ability to mis-enunciate many complicated words such as 'creek', 'Kant', and 'oil'.
People tend to find it funny and disarming, so I digress.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Augusten Burroughs or Brett Easton Ellis.
I enjoy reading psychology, biology, and technical books as well.

Movies: Donnie Darko, Happiness, Storytelling, Fight Club, Lost in Translation, Dr. Stangelove (anything by Kubrick), and Fargo. And who can forget Puddie Tang?

Music: Crystal Castles,The National,Modest Mouse, Pinback, The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Johnny Cash, Fleetwood Mac, The Decemberists, David Bowie, REM, A Perfect Circle, Coldplay, Depeche Mode, Echo and the Bunnymen,DIIV,Afghan Whigs

Foods: Pseudo-Italian and Psuedo-Mexican food. (Tex-Mex).
The six things I could never do without
Air, water, food, heat, love, and self-actualization?

My friends & family
Comedy- Thank you George Carlin, David Cross, and Louis CK
My music collection.
My books.
The optimism to think that everything might just work out in the end after all, and the logic to realize that it probably won't.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
OkCupid says I'm arrogant. Can we rename that something light and fluffy like the clear skies act? Instead of arrogant, I'm UNDERMODEST or nearly-unpretentious. I really don't care about labels, and I find it amusing that I was immediately defensive about the characture.

I'm full of shit most of the time, but as I like to joke - I really am the most modest person I know.

I'm avoiding the question, I guess.. so...
* how to meet a cool guy who isn't too slutty.
* what I want to accomplish in my lifetime.
* societal problems
* politics - and generally being disappointed by everyone.
* adventurous new things to do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working on school stuff, drinking, entertaining people with my antics, or contemplating the world's problems.
Sometimes I'm just home reading a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to identify Republican. (Yes, I bought into the fiscal-responsibility / contract with America bullshit )

I wish we had a socially progressive / fiscally responsible party. Neither party seems the latter, these days.
You should message me if
It's 4 am... You're bored and can make interesting conversation... You find me interesting... You think I'm an idiot. You're certain I'm your soul mate... You're certain I'm the anti-christ. Your hormones are raging... (Oxytocin?) You're hungry... You're out to save my soul from damnation. To be quite honest, I'd rather hear about you than ramble on about myself. Give me a shout.
