My self-summary
I'm lighthearted and I like to joke around a lot. I think I have a pretty positive outlook on life. I think of myself as patient, considerate, and passionate.

I like outdoor activities such as camping and hiking, sometimes. My real hobby, though, is ideas. I love to hear and discuss ideas. Politically, I'm still finding myself- no group seems to have all the answers. I identify as libertarian, but find some Libertarian candidates' ideas too idealistic and impractical. May run for office someday.

I also like to watch tv, movies, play video games, go play pool, tinker with computers, have poker games from time time, and go to the casino once in awhile and try to beat the dealer! I love playing blackjack and craps in Vegas.

According to one personality test, I'm a DIRECTOR/explorer. According to another, I'm an ENTP, which suggests I'm "clever". I don't know, though, I've always felt more introverted than extroverted. http://www.humanmetrics.com/personality/entp
What I’m doing with my life
I was in the Army for 6 years. I taught English in Taiwan for two years. Now I'm a science teacher in Los Angeles.

I am an Assistant Organizer for an atheist/agnostic Meetup group. I’m an agnostic, and being non-religious is a big part of who I am.

I believe we all have a duty to defend the freedoms we've been given, so I try to stay informed, and I get active on what I consider to be important issues. I'm intent on leaving this world better than I found it. I used to be in several civic service organizations that focused on community service and leadership development for young people. That's something I'd like to get into again soon. I try very hard not to be wasteful, and to reduce my carbon footprint.
I’m really good at
I’m a good, supportive friend, and a formidable opponent at trivia games. My friends say I'm a good conversationalist, and I get compliments on my cooking, writing, and backrubs.
The first things people usually notice about me
My posture. I have good posture, even by military standards. I also get compliments on my blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite movie: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

My favorite book is Red Mars.

My favorite food is Pizza. Good pizza :-)

I like all music except punk, heavy metal, and... basically anything that tries to pass off screaming at the top of your lungs as talent.
Six things I could never do without
I consider myself pretty non-material. There's nothing I couldn't live without. But six things I really enjoy:

-Intelligent conversation
-Driving my car or riding my motorcycle
-The support of my family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Utopia. I know a perfect world is not achievable. But I want as close to a perfect world as possible. I think about what we should do for our economy, what our foreign policy should be, how we need to prepare our young people to lead in the future.

I also think about love and relationships a lot. I see so many unhealthy relationships, where one party or another is unhappy. Healthy relationships is a very important subject for me. Two books that I found very insightful were "Why Him? Why Her?" by Helen Fisher and "The Five Love Languages" by Gary Chapman. Read them, they just might change your life!
On a typical Friday night I am
Singing karaoke at our local watering hole, playing poker with my friends, or catching up on my stories- currently Last Week Tonight, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, or Master of None.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get hit on by guys all the time. Too bad I'm not gay *shrugs*
You should message me if
You feel we have things in common and would like to get to know me better. If you are intellectual and care about social issues it might lead to a strong friendship, or possibly more...
The two of us
