I consider myself weird. I used to be wholesome and unoffensive, boring and shy. Now the word wholesome means nothing to me, I can hardly ever be unoffensive, I'm much less shy. Boring? Hmm... By God, I love to spend a lot of time at home... doing shit I think is awesome, but my standards aren't everyone's. Guilty as charged!
I initially show myself as being careful and considerate. Once I like you it becomes a joyride of playful and ridiculous.
I love sharing media experiences. For reasons I don't fully understand, I'm happiest when watching something with someone. All my best memories include this. Often times I'll have something that I want to get across to someone, but I'll have a video that sums it up way better than I ever could. Like so: https://youtu.be/1eUrwYQe3Dw
What does it sum up? That this is an example of a great moment in life.
I want to spend time with people the way my cat spends time with me. Intensely, but still on her terms. But I promise not to claw you when I'm hungry. Also, I'm effective, though, I'm told not efficient at my own cleaning. I do a lot of sleeping. And I can sometimes feed myself. This analogy isn't really working anymore.
For real, I clean animal shit at the zoo. They call it being an animal keeper, but there's no point in sugar coating it. It's sometimes life-threatening. It lets me make use of my degree in Philosophy. You can get so much good thinking done while doing manual labor. I don't really think I do important work, but I love the work I do.
I'm currently planning out writing a horribly long YA fiction book series that will no doubt be painfully successful. And never see the light of day. My world is huge, my story so short.
I.e. no sense of style. NONE
But the shit is comfortable, and that's the only point.
Secondary things people notice about me:
My hair smells great.
Something you'll never notice about me:
The pitch of my voice changes depending on the language I'm speaking.
I may smell faintly of hay.

I fall asleep to down tempo playlists.
I hate whatever it is my downstairs neighbors are listening to right now. It sounds like street fair music, I have no idea.

How I feel about them: Please, yes, and no.
Important things aside, random facts are my thing. You might feel the desire to ask a question like "If aliens aren't real then why do so many people report having been abducted?" Then I'll bite my lip and try to figure out if I should shut my mouth and let you have your paranormal fantasy or tell you about sleep paralysis and the different ways cultures interpret the phenomenon.
I like to know a little about everything. Anecdotes and stories are things I love. Information is something I'm always searching for.
I don't get to have a typical work week.
You want to share unanswered questions. I have some too, after all.
You want to watch some sort of media and talk about it.
Even if you don't want to.
Oh, just message me already.
