What I’m doing with my life
After about 10 years of working with youth programs (summer camps, P.E. programs, after school programs, etc) I decided to start up college. So right now I am going to school full-time trying to piece together a strong educational base in order to live the life I want to live.

I have large dreams and goals that I'd like to achieve. These said goals and dreams require money, thought, and time. Some examples of these goals would be travel the world, mainly all the cool places; backpack the PCT and the oregon coast trail; learn many more instruments, have my own recording studio, and record my music collection; own a large property with a house I designed and on this property I would run my own youth camp programs with ziplines ( of my own design of course ), high ropes courses, rock climbing routes, and many other cool things.

As of right now, my goals are to finish up my associates degree at Chemeketa and transfer to Western to major in Social Science - Criminal Justice and minor in Music Production and or Organizational Leadership.
I’m really good at
Being the person I want to be.
Thinking outside the box.
I'm also good at thinking out loud with random ideas and situations that have nothing to do with the situation at hand..

I am very good with my hands (no pun intended) lol. I love woodworking, being crafty, cooking, and playing guitar. I'm generally a pretty creative and artsy person. I can make you almost anything you see on Pinterest.

Additionally, Ive been told my photography is very good. You are welcome to be the judge of that, I have photos on Instagram. Feel free to follow me! mac180.
The first things people usually notice about me
I always get pinned as innocent seeming when people first meet me. This may be because I can be a little stand off ish when I first meet people. I have realized I am this way because I analyze any new social group. I can't help it, I'm a hard core people watcher =P

Other than that, I'm not too sure what others first impression of me may be, so you'll have to tell me! =P
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I don't read much as a leisurely activity. But when I do, I tend to read geeky books. Such as Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, and even Encyclopedias, lol

Movies: Again, I tend to be a geek. I like sci-fi (Star Wars, Star Trek, etc), action, comedy, and horror (zombies are always good in movies). Overall, I'll like just about any movie as long as it was played out well (writing, acting, story, etc..). For instance, I love the work of the directors Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, Stanley Kubrick, and Peter Jackson.
Oh, and I do have a guilty pleasure of watching really bad B movies. I find great joy in laughing at the fallacies, bad acting, poorly written lines, etc..

TV Shows: I honestly have not watched much TV in the past eight years or so.. But now and then I'll get on hulu or netflix and look up a show I like or liked such as the X files, 11.22.63, Nova, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Penny Dreadful, and Breaking Bad... Just to name a few.

Music: I love music! Have I mentioned that I love music yet? Because I really love music!!! lol.
I listen to a ridiculous amount of genres. If you were to ask me to pick a favorite artist or song, I'd tell you that I cannot pick just one. I love way too many artists and songs for their own unique reasons. However, I will say that I find myself being very selective when it comes to the genres of country, modern hiphop, rap, and classical. Most modern country is boring and repetitive in my opinion, most modern hiphop and rap simply has good beats but shitty lyrical writing and singing (but it's covered up with autotune), and I need to be in the right mood for classical.

Here is a fairly extensive list of some bands that I listen to on a regular basis.

Against Me!, The Airborne Toxic Event, Alice In Chains, Arctic Monkeys, Beck, The Black Keys, The Bravery, Breaking Benjamin, Broken Bells, Cage The Elephant, Chevelle, Cold War Kids, Coldplay, Collective Soul, Crash Kings, Death Cab For Cutie, Five For Fighting, Foo Fighters, Foster The People, Franz Ferdinand, The Frey, Genesis, Glen Hansard, Gnarls Barkley, The Goo Goo Dolls, Gorillaz, Incubus, Jack Johnson, JET, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Eat Wolrd, John Mayer, The Killers, Kings Of Leon, Led Zeppelin, Linkin Park, Live, Metronomy, Modest Mouse, Mumford & Sons, Muse, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Oasis, The Offspring, OneRepublic, Paramore, Pearl Jam, Puddle of Mudd, Queens Of The Stone Age, The Raconteurs, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rock Kills Kid, Seether, Shinedown, Sick Puppies, Silversun Pickups, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Three Days Grace, Tom Petty, Tool, Train, The Van Jets, Velvet Revolver, The Wallflowers, Weezer, The White Stripes, Wolfmother, Young the Giant, 10 years, and so many others!

Food: I love food! I'm a fat kid at heart. I love cooking it, eating it, and even talking about it. I also really enjoy trying new foods and I'm not picky, I'll eat anything once. The only exception to this is that I really do not like raw tomatoes or celery!
On a daily basis, I try to eat as healthy as I can, so I cook at home a lot. I cook most of my food from scratch as I find enjoyment in making food by hand. However, when I do go out to eat, my top choices would be Sushi, Mexican, Chinese, and Italian ^_^
The six things I could never do without
(In no particular order) friends, music, my car (it's nothing special, I just like the freedom it gives me), the outdoors, food, traveling and my camera.
Oh, wait.. That's seven things.. Just ignore your least favorite thing out of that list =P
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'll often daydream about very random hypothetical situations about the past, present, and future.

Why so many people do stupid things..

How to wright my next song.

What aspects I love about a song that is stuck in my head.

How social constructs are necessary in society and yet I dislike so many of them or that people get caught up in them without any thought.
On a typical Friday night I am
Other than Friday being my back and bi work out day, I don't really have a typical Friday night...
I'll do anything as long as it is fun, exciting, and with good people. Such things may include playing board games, card games, video games, or recreational activities. Or, I'll go out for a movie, show, concert, drinks, or food. I'm really pretty easy going and I'll make the best out of anything =)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In all honesty, I am a very open book. Therefore, feel free to ask me anything. I triple dog dare you!!! =P
You should message me if
You feel as though our personalities and interests are similar, you would like to get to know me better, and if you are an awesome person with a good amount of common sense (I don't tend to get along with people who are common senseless).
