What I’m doing with my life
I'm working as a math tutor and getting things back on track to either go back & finish my undergrad @ EMU &/or go get some better paying job(s). I self study math & computer science for now when I stay motivated. I've got a big place to myself and I'm in a town I haven't lived in in a while so while living alone I'm doing whatever I want while I'm here; so, a bit of fun, and a healthy amount of hard work. Oh, I should mention I don't have a car right now so that makes me have less of a social life than usual.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at being figuring stuff out with rational though, having fun, and being myself. I keep in touch with my close friends pretty well. An ex told me I'm a good conversationalist. I'm easy to get along with and I'm difficult to surprise or shock.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard (when I have one)?
My curly hair (when it's not cut too short)?
My mutton chops (when I grow them out)?
Something else?
Idk, you tell me?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll say that I will almost always clean my... and possibly your plate. I don't like food going to waste. I'm not a picky eater if it comes down to food vs no food, but I know my preferences very well. I used to say my favorite food was Garlic bread and Dragon's Milk (a delicious beer). I'm not sure if Dragon's Milk is my favorite anymore...

*Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
*Catch 22
(at leas it was a favorite when I read it many years ago)
*Brave New World
*The perks of being a wallflower
*The Little Prince
*I read a lot of informative books which tends to burn me out on reading for fun, but now that I have a bit more time maybe I'll start reading some more for fun.

I don't watch much TV, at least I try not to. To that end, I don't have Cable or anything like that; I prefer Netflix (no commercials! Less $ et cetera) and currently don't have that, so I just use the internet to watch things.
I have a standard def TV that I watch movies & play games on, and I plan to eventually replace it with a decent (and more energy efficient) flat HDTV. Here's some things I do watch.
*Game of Thrones (when I can get it...)
*HOUSE (it's been a very long time and I'm many seasons behind)
*Star Trek (I'll probably watch every episode of all of them at some point right now I'm on DS9)
*History channel, Discovery channel, Science channel & that sort of thing
*occasional news, usually filtered threw the pundants on Comedy Central
*Big Bang Theory
*30 Rock, Arrested Development, and some other comedy shows.
I guess there are quite a lot of things I will watch if I feel like it, I'm not into most of those bad reality shows though. I don't feel like trying to list them all.
Cooking shows make me hungrier than usual.

I like a variety of types of movies. I never want to watch anything called "the human centipede" ever. I don't like to watch the same movie I've just recently seen almost ever. I might prefer to watch a great movie or to sit around talking about stuff on a hammock, mostly it's the company that matters, and watching a decent movie can be a good time with the right company. It all depends on what kind of movie we/I are in the mood for. It's not something I usually do alone, though TV shows I'll watch on marathon mode.
A few of the movies I consider good are:
The Matrix, Snatch, Run Lola Run, Memento, The Shawshank Redemption, Paprika, Groundhog Day, Harold & Maude, Brick, Dirty Harry, Kung Pow, Eternal Sunshine, Fight Club, Seven Samuari, Kill Bill and many many more. I think it would be hard to find someone who doesn't agree with me on at least a few good movies.
these are by no means my favorites, just some I like and could think of right now.

I'm very eclectic with music as well. Here's a short list of some stuff I wouldn't recommend trash talking about with me around.
Jimmy Hendrix, Modest Mouse, Incubus, Tom Waits, Radiohead, Queen, The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, The pixies, Amanda Palmer, The Clash, The White Stripes, Semi sonic, Cake, Magnetic Fields, Yo-Yo ma, Ok Go, Led Zeplin, Gogol Bordello, The Smiths, there's lots more that I'm not thinking of at the moment.
Six things I could never do without
I'm going to answer a different question; name six things that you would prefer not to have to go without for long periods.

*I could go without high speed internet access for months at a time but I'd really rather not, especially right now.
*The same goes for sex. A year would be a long time to go without...
*Friends! Feeling isolated from them for long periods would kinda suck. I at least want to chat with them once in a while.
*access to healthy and delicious food
*convenient Transportation, at least a bike is nice to have for getting around town
*financial stability and at least a mild amount of independence.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How and what to improve especially about myself and my own situations, my friends, trying to figure out what I should most be focusing on, living in the moment, philosophy, optimization/efficiency, food, long term consequences of seemingly insignificant decisions, humor, whatever subjects I'm currently focusing on studying, music, job stuff, recent conversations I've had with people I care about, all of the things I want to do; most of which I don't have much time for.
On a typical Friday night I am
I can't think of what would constitute a "typical" Friday.
In my apartment/house? Maybe.
With a friend/lover? Maybe.
Alone playing video games/sleeping/working? Maybe.
Outside? Preferably at some point if just for a moment.
Spending a portion of my hard earned discretionary income on fun experiences? If I so choose, but I usually don't spend money just for the sake of it being Friday.
At a party with people I know? Sounds fun. Maybe I'll go!
Doing mostly the same thing I did the last Friday night? Maybe.

Please don't try and plan out my Friday night more than 3 days in advance unless you have something particularly fun or necessary for me to do....or you happen to know I really really enjoy your company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know what the most private thing I'd be willing to admit is. Admit has a funny sound to it, like whatever I'd be saying here is something you'd feel guilt about. I'll gladly tell the truth about whatever you want to know about me and share "embarrassing" stories about myself like the time that turtle bit my nipple when I was swimming. I don't really know the best way to answer this question.
You should message me if
You've come this far into my profile and still think you might be interest to chat, talk or video chat, and maybe someday meet in person if things go well.
Right now I'm just looking to meet friends; I'm seeing someone and have yet to sort out how serious the relationship is, so I don't want to split my focus romantically.
The two of us
