My self-summary

My name is Nick, I went to Northwestern University, studying film and computer engineering. Currently attending UC, might be going back to Northwestern, it's all kind of up in the air at the moment

I like to go skiing and shoot pool, hang out with friends, stuff like that. I'm fairly adventurous, willing to try almost anything if it sounds like a fun time or it'll make for a good story.

I'm weirdly into grammar. I know the difference between who and whom, and I'm way too willing to explain it.

I strongly dislike water-based fowl, geese in particular.
What I’m doing with my life

Man, it's weird when you make the transition between saying what you're going to be when you grow up...and saying what you are right now
I’m really good at
drinking heavily (actually this skill has fallen by the wayside, sadly...growing up and all that), playing pool, and skiing. Also, reading way too much into movies/TV shows and going on rants about the importance of optimism.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know...I can be fairly boisterous in social situations, so I guess I can be a bit loud? I'm also moderately funny and pretty personable, so there's that, I guess.

Also, I'm told I look like Ben Affleck in Argo fairly often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Kurt Vonnegut, The Great Gatsby, Harry Potter of course, Canticle for Liebowitz, To Kill a Mockingbird, any comic book written by Grant Morrison, American Gods/anything by Neil Gaiman

Pretty much anything but horror. My favorites include When Harry Met Sally, Shawshank Redemption, and the Godfather. Her made me very happy, and I'm a big fan of post modern film. Also, Guardians of the Galaxy is just pure joy in film form. I also enjoy most superhero movies, any decent sci-fi film, and a lot of fantasy stuff.

Seinfeld, Arrested Development, Community (first three seasons and the fifth), Parks and Rec (Bye bye Lil Sebastian), the Newsroom, New Girl, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the Last Man on Earth, Doctor Who, Sherlock, any and all superhero cartoons (I'm a child, of which I'm keenly aware), Family Feud at any and all hours

I'm kind of all over the place. Folk rock from the 60's and 70's. 80's pop, 90's alternative, early 00's R&B, a decent amount of rap.

Milksteak. Ten points if you get the reference.
The six things I could never do without
1. Friends/Family/other lame yet crucial things to say
2. My ability to create numbered lists without difficulty
3. Tetris. Just Tetris.
4. Parmesan Cheese. I could eat it by the pound.
5. Netflix Instant Streaming
6. TVTropes. Seriously the best website on the internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Movies, mostly...really just any kind of fiction. I like looking at how genres shift over time, and how they're indicative of the society that produces them. Sounds kind of boring, but there is a lot of cool stuff there.

Also, how much geese suck. And clowns. Seriously. They're terrible. Take my word for it.

And, lastly...how I wish I were a superhero. But who doesn't wish that?
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking with friends, either at my place, a friend's place, a bar, or a party. Nothing too out of the ordinary, just meeting new people or spending time with the people I already know.

Or...I'm playing a video game/watching a movie by myself, on my lazier, more introspective evenings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I slept with a Winnie the Pooh stuffed animal until I was twelve. I still have him in storage and slept with him for like a week after I saw Toy Story 3.

Also, movies make me cry much more easily than real life.
You should message me if
You feel like it, have anything interesting to say, are stunningly good looking with a personality to match, are not a goose...or a clown. Gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. Other circus performers may apply.

And, actually, if you're a goose with an OkCupid profile, I'd like to talk to you. More out of curiosity than anything.
