My self-summary
I pride myself on being a gentlemen and firmly believe that chivalry is not dead. I'm a very honest, sincere and open person. If you have a question about me, all you need to do is ask.

I'm outgoing and love trying new things. I enjoy skateboarding, martial arts, and just running around and being active and alive. That said, I also enjoy just staying in and either playing video games, reading a good book (there are so many!!) watching netflix/movies or just enjoying the quiet time.

Long story short: Grad student. Educator.Martial artist. Believe in chivalry. Geek/nerd/dork. Ravenclaw. Movie buff. Looking for the Lily to my Marshall, Morticia to my Gomez, Harley Quinn to my Joker.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently working in a school for special needs and at risk kids, and I love what I do. I am also currently persuing a Masters in Social Work.
I’m really good at
Being a hopeless romantic, martial arts, ballroom dancing, being empathetic, remembering small details, driving stick shift, quoting everything from books to songs to movies, pumpkin carving, knowing useless trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
Everyone I have dated has told me I have amazing eyes.

"To be is to be perceived, and so to know thyself is only possible through the eyes of another."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favorite bands are Disturbed, Blind Guardian, Within Temptation, Rammstein, and Iced Earth, and while I tend to favor alternative rock/metal, if a song sounds good I really won't care who it's by.

My favorite author is K. A. Applegate. Besides her books I really enjoy Harry Potter, as well as random books like The Sun Also Rises, The Phantom Tollbooth, and Code of the Samurai.

Not a big fan of shows (they take too long) but some shows I like include Frasier, Boy Meets World, Black Adder, Firefly, Justice League, Doctor Who, Death Note, Black Books, Criminal Minds and Law and Order SVU.

I absolutely love movies but my all-time favorite movies are Cloud Atlas (super bonus points if you've seen it), House of Flying Daggers, The Count of Monte Cristo, Stranger than Fiction, Titan A.E., The Prince of Egypt, The Holiday, Land Before Time (the first one), Fern Gully, Predestination, The Last Samurai, The Princess Bride, and everything Disney, Pixar, and Studio Ghibli.
The six things I could never do without
My car. I LOVE driving. (Stick shift!!!)
Music
Movies
Martial arts
My friends/family
Lists (completely serious)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My past to learn from, my present to experience, and my future to prepare.

I tend to over think things a lot as well.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have typical Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"Our integrity sells for so little, but it is all we really have. It is the very last inch of us. But within that inch, we are free."
You should message me if
You can't think of a good enough reason not to ;-)

Super bonus points if you know where either of the quotes come from.
