My self-summary
Hey there!
My name is Karl. Some people start off saying "I'm shy until you get to know me." Personally, I think that 's a copout. So you're probably asking yourself "why should I get to know you, Karl?" A good question! I'm creative, a good listener, and well read. I'm into hiking, camping and other outdoor activities. I'm a fairly decent cook and I'm working on a book.
I want to travel the rest of the country. I've lived in California, Washington, and Georgia.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm working on my second book. I wrote one back in high school. It was bloody awful. I'm making sure this one is much better!
I’m really good at
I'm an Eagle Scout. That's the highest award in the Boy Scouts.
I like to think I'm a pretty good cook.
Recently I've taken up recreational shooting. I think I'm a pretty good shot. I've never missed the target.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't like to drink. Never liked the taste. A friend gave me a bottle of "Not Dad's Root Beer." I drank about half of if before excusing myself and poured it out on some flowers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Mark Twain is my favorite author. His sense of humor is still witty and full of life even after more than 100 years. Right now I'm reading this awesome sci-fi series called "World War" by Harry Turtledove. It's an alternative universe were earth is invaded by aliens in WW2 and humanity has to unite in order to defeat them.
Six things I could never do without
My friends
My family
My books
The book I'm working on
Donuts (not gonna lie)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What makes a classical book a classic? Why only American music really seems to get international attention.
History, politics, and how to make people laugh.
On a typical Friday night I am
Exercising my right to play video games! Hanging out with friends, or hanging out at bookstores.
You should message me if
If you have half a brain, you're not into yoga and you like pina coladas. Or if you're a fan of "Game of Thrones."
No seriously, you're into science fiction and you've got a book to recommend or you're also into video games.
Thanks for reading and good luck out there!
The two of us
