My name is Paul and I grew up in Albany, NY. I received a Bachelor’s of Music (Music Education was my major) from the State University of New York at Fredonia in 2010 and attempted to a Master’s Degree in Music History at Bowling Green State University, although I did not finish the degree (and don’t plan to). My primary instrument is the Double Bass, but I haven’t been playing it recently. Should start again, at least for fun.
I currently work full time at Sam’s Club as a Sales Associate, although I am looking for avenues to leave for more of a career rather than a job. It is more or less fine as a job, I get guaranteed hours, somewhat of a set schedule (I generally get Saturday and Thursday off and work 1-9:30 on Monday through Saturday and 10-6:30 on Sunday). So while I might not have much usable time on the days I work, it doesn’t vary from day to day. I’ll take what I can get.
I am shy and I tend to over think situations, which makes it hard for me to initiate conversations on here. I don’t necessarily like doing things that I cannot guarantee the outcome. I am bit high strung. I try to be easy going but tend to get easily frustrated at situations which make a situation worse. I am trying to find better ways to relax and more outlets to focus the energy.
In addition, I try to head to the gym in the morning before work to get into better shape. I am also looking at other employment opportunities.
-Playing my bass
-Wasting time on non-essential items while neglecting things that are actually important.
-Taking bad pictures of myself.
-My lips (friend describes it as "kissable"). It is funny.....I used to hate them. I guess they are all right now :)
-My eyes, which are blue-grayish. It is one of the features about me that I like.
-Height, I am about 6 foot 3. Somewhat tall, but definitely not the tallest.
For music, I tend to only listen to classical music. It's what I have studied, and what I really enjoy. I am not closed off to other types of music, I just gravitate to classical.
I have stopped paying attention to what the new "hit" series on TV are. I still watch shows like "The Simpsons", "Futurama", "Daily Show", and "Bob's Burgers".
Food: I like most things, not extremely picky. I like trying (and cooking) new things. Also, pistachios...
I probably should read more books.......
-Indian Buffet. I know that I overeat at these establishments....BUT THE FOOD IS SOOOO GOOD. AND SO BAD FOR MY DIET!
-transportation (need it to carry my bass around easily)
-Coffee/tea (Coffee in the morning, tea at night)
-music (Both listening and playing)
Maybe this can change....for the right person ;)
I still live with my parents. Mainly due to financial reasons. With this job, a months pay would barely cover rent in this area. There would not be enough left over to cover utilities, food, and other bills. While I do love my parents and am grateful I can live here at the moment, it's still not ideal.
I won't respond if you don't have a picture...
