My self-summary
I tend to be a rather deliberate person. I choose my words carefully, and I'll hesitate to get myself into things without having a reasonable estimate of what my expectations should be going in. This usually leads people to conclude I'm quiet or shy, and I am, but those close to me know that I am usually present and minding the details, and I'm not afraid to cut right to the point when the situation demands.

I am interested in a variety of subjects, and love to learn, particularly about technology and natural sciences. My favorite physical pastime is dancing, preferably to quick energetic electronic music or some flavors of hip hop. I love going for drives on mostly open roads, and when I can invest the time I like to get myself a little lost venturing into terrain I haven't reached before and see what sights there are on the quest to track down a different path back.

I'm here to meet and greet interesting people, in the hopes of finding those who want to share together the things that make us who we are. Ultimately I'm more interested in finding a lover than a sex partner, if your goals are similar and you're interested in finding out how we'd hit it off, I encourage you to give it a shot.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a student. Again. This time around I've decided to bang my head against the wall hoping a degree in Computer Science will come out of it. My dream is to do work somewhere in the natural sciences, but since I seem to have some talent for programming algorithms I'm content with the idea of being the one to code the simulations some other theorist designs.

Really though, I have the same sort of vague ambitions as so many other naive, directionless undergrads. I'm just getting to an age where there's less and less excuse for it.
I’m really good at
I'm proud of the fact that I'm starting to feel pretty self-contained. It used to be, a few lifestyles ago, I would be nervous in my own company. I'd rush out to find and kill time with acquaintances just to avoid being alone. I still like catching up with friends periodically, but I'm super glad I've made more space to introspect.

Also, I've been told I have a knack for intuiting the word you're looking for when it gets stuck on the tip of your tongue.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm a pretty big guy.

But you have to understand, I'm an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in figgy pudding. The pudding is there as insulation so all the magic doesn't get out. And I *can* climb a minor mountain if the situation calls for it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
music: I like the Gorillaz, Offspring, early Metallica, Beck, Evanescence, Cake, Sublime, Phish, MC Lars, Aesop Rock, Pink Floyd and a few dozen others I have difficulty recalling on the spot. There's really not a lot of music I don't enjoy; I try pretty hard not to dismiss a song just because it sounds like something I'm not supposed to like.

movies: I like mindbenders such as Fight Club, Memento, and Pi most. After that is action and SFX like Iron Man and The Matrix. And when I'm alone and no one is likely to catch me, a third genre I gravitate toward is 'chick-flicks' (this is probably a misnomer, I hope not too offensively so) - I've been known to get a little weepy over a good romantic dramedy, eg The Holiday or It's Complicated

tv: TV is candy, and as such I demand that it be fun, pleasant to watch, and not take up too much of my time. I should say that when I watch I do like How I Met Your Mother, The Middle, Futurama, Family Guy, Scrubs... there's actually quite a few. Mostly it all fulls under the 'funny' heading, I like to laugh when I'm doing nothing else.

Books: I'm not sure what I like for books, I used to read a lot of sci-fi till it all started to look the same, now I'm tacking out trying to find something new to enjoy. I'm open to suggestions, I tend to disappoint myself when looking for titles, most of my favorite reads have come at the suggestion of friends.

Food: I eat mostly stuff that doesn't take a lot of preparation or dishes. This results in a fair amount of one-pan wonders, and an excessive amount of take-out. I'm a sucker for Pad Thai and sushi.
Six things I could never do without
1:friends and family
2:personal time/space
3:a good pants pocket paradigm (for easy location of keys, wallet, phone, etc.)
4:another tomorrow to put stuff off to
5:convenient media distractions
6:country roads
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to choose sides in the robot wars.
Is life the struggle to resist the fate of entropy? Perhaps the tendency of the universe toward disorder is the current we will to swim against, in fact perhaps it inspired the development of that will in the first place?
What is a value, abstractly? How does one pick theirs up? Are they measurably good or bad?
Why is it that I know exactly what I want to say before and after I say it, but it all seems to get muddled in the moment?
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to get out dancing when I can. Sometimes I go for one of my drives or wandering walks. The big thing about a free night is being able to take a moment for me, and do something pleasant because I chose to do it, not because it needs to get done.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm still really not sure what to say here. I've got a lot of stories I'm embarrassed about, though some of them can be pretty entertaining when told in the right context. This is definitely not the right context.
You should message me if
You should message me if you want to. Don't pay any attention to my standards for who you should message, since in my mind I don't stand a chance with any of you.
The two of us
