Hi! Thanks for stopping by!
I'm not from Lafayette originally, you'll either notice that here or bytalking to me and hearing I dont have an ounce of southern accent. I came from the north, Michigan specifically until I was about 25 years old where I moved to West Texas for school. I spent about six years and it was wonderful. The adventure of the culture there and the schooling I went through was probably one of the best expereriences I could have hoped to have in my life. With a few adventurous summers of internships I eventually landed here in Lafayette, I love it here. I can complain about the heat and humidty every day, but I still love it here and don't plan to leave for a while.
I'm a very easy going guy, I just go with the flow and try not to make any waves. But that doesn't mean I'm a pushover, I am very firm in the beliefs and values I have and won't let myself get run over. I'm not into conflict and fights, so if you're the person that wants to argue every Friday night and then make up on Saturday, I'm not your guy. You'll end up making up with yourself. Of course I will fight for something that is of value, I am not going to let myself lose out on something without giving everything I can. I've lost enough in my life to know what is worth fighting for and what is worth hurting for.
I'm looking for someone that's also pretty easy going, I'm not crazy about arguments and fighting. I know it happens, but it's it's not something I enjoy or consider a form of sport. I want someone that's okay with my corny and goofy sense of humor, some people can't handle it or don't understand it and it can get frustrating. I can be sarcastic and a little negative about some things sometimes, I don't usually mean it, it's usually for a bit of humor or to just get people to think. I want someone that doesn't want to go out all the time, I'm really not into the bar scene at all anymore. Going to dinner a lot, that's perfectly acceptable though, I like being out and about. Someone that is happy just sitting around at home watching tv, watching movies, cooking together, or just enjoying one another's company. Someone that is self sufficient too, I don't want to have to totally take care of someone, someone that has a job, is actively getting a new job, or in school and has a plan. Someone that is active enough to be able to go for a long walk or an easy hike. Someone that may want to join me and play some sports sometimes. There's so many things I can put here but I don't want to get too specific, you never know who you could miss out on.
So that's my gigantic summary that glosses over almost every bit of me, but that's okay if you're intrigued you'll contact me and ask me anyways. I won't even hold it against you if you didn't read the whole thing.
I spend a lot of time exercising, playing Frisbee and going to the gym. I try to keep active and energetic.
I won't say I'm really an expert at anything, but I'm usually pretty well rounded when I try new things.
I can always come up with some corny joke or pun or something to make you either smile or think. I've described it like a stick of lit dynamite, it gets thrown and you don't really know what's going on, then a few seconds later BOOM.
I enjoy movies, books, and tv. After I exhaust myself exercising there isn't much else to do. I'll focus mostly on sci-fi and fantasy so that puts me in the geek range of things. I grew up about the biggest comic nerd as a teen and nearly fit the stereotype to a t. I'm probably the only person in the world that didn't think The Hangover was hilarious.
I enjoy cooking and learning about cooking. I used to be experimenting in the kitchen all the time, but I've slowed down a bit. I do still love to make something when I have the chance. I've tried making many many a varied recipe. I totally love to make food for other people both as paries and small groups. If you like to talk about food, you'll never run out of conversation with me. I'm guaranteed to make you hungry.
Music isn't too big of a deal to me. I like almost every genre but rap and hip hop don't usually rub me the right way. I prefer listening to country, classic rock, or anything that might be new and interesting for the moment. I'm not into live music, it's usually just loud and mediocre, if I'm out and about I want to be able to talk with the people I'm with.
My truck... being reliant on everyone else or stuck somewhere would drive me crazy.
A phone... no phone in particular, but I really like to keep in touch with my friends and family especially since most of them are out of state.
Food... obviously this is becoming a theme. I love my food, and I'd rather not deprive myself of what my tastebuds can enjoy.
The gym... goes along with the food. I could probably get by without one, but I really wouldn't want to.
Weekends... I can do a lot during the week if I work at it, but nothing beats sleeping in or having that feeling at midnight knowing tomorrow doesn't even matter yet.
(lots happened in between, I forgot to add them though)
