My self-summary
I'm pretty much a normal(-ish) person. I'm not too crazy. I'm usually pretty serious; I work hard and play hard. I like to have fun, too.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a teacher. I teach high school English.
Sometimes I go to the gym. Less often than I should (and even less often than I'd like to). Balancing time can be hard.
I'm working on coding a game using RPG Maker MV. Sometimes I write fiction and poetry.
I'm part of a board game group and a D&D group.
I have a cat. He's a bastard.
I’m really good at
I'm good at using words and at dealing with depression. I'm highly independent.
I am not good at cleaning or relationships.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes... I have pretty blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a) I love reading. That's why I'm an English teacher. I mostly enjoy contemporary literature, but I like a wide variety of books. I have a few all time favorites, including (but not limited to) The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart, Anansi Boys and Stardust by Neil Gaiman, The Town That Forgot How to Breathe by Kenneth J. Harvey, Q&A by Vikas Swarup, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, The Life of Pi by Yann Martel, and the series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. And anything by Dan Brown (although I was disappointed by Inferno). Currently reading: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman; Seconds by Scott Pilgrim.

b) In general, I enjoy a wide variety of genres--comedy, horror, musical, martial arts, and suspense. Most recent movie in theaters: The Belko Experiment.

c) I like a variety of music, and I love concerts! My current favorite is Dashboard Confessional. Most recent concert: Dashboard Confessional. ❤

d) I like most foods except seafood. I love spicy foods, especially Indian and Thai. And sweets. And bread. I can bake pretty well.

e) TV: Recently cut my cable. Am still obsessed with American Horror Story and The Walking Dead. Currently watching: The Walking Dead.

f) Video Games: Any RPGs. I grew up on Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior games. I love games like Skyrim and Dragon Age. Currently playing: Final Fantasy 14.

g) Board Games: One of the highlights of my week is going to a local tabletop and RPG group. Some of my favorite games include Dominant Species, Battlestar Gallactica, and Scythe.
Six things I could never do without
1. chocolate
2. fiber
3. video games
4. beer
5. poetry
6. you...?

(I was drinking beer when I wrote this list, so it's probably a pretty honest self-assessment.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
School/work. Video and baord games. How not to hate everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
at a poetry slam, a high school football game, a friend's place, or at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't think I'm capable of love.

Oh, and my name. I'm Jesse.
You should message me if
you are an intelligent and interesting person who would like to talk to a like-minded individual.
