I like sarcasm/cynicism but I'm overall a happy person.
I'm absolutely unapologetically me. Sometimes I'm abrasive, it's not because I'm trying to offend you. I just don't like to sugar-coat things or dance around the issue. I'm incredibly kind and patient, I just speak my mind.
Yeah, paper airplanes.
I am ambitious, intelligent, and focused
I loved the Illinois Warrior Dash but couldn't get the day off of work this year. I missed all the cool adventure races this year because of work, I'm hoping for next summer though.
Roller Derby. I started a men's roller derby team with a few friends in August 2011. We're called the Chicago Bruise Brothers, maybe you've heard of us? When I'm not skating around, I like to support the various women's leagues too. (Which is how I found the interest in the men's team)
Seriously though, paper airplanes.
I have a story for everything. Pick a word (be nice and use a regular word) and I've got a story that is connected to it. No. Really. This is a challenge, people!
Accepting the negative "man-points" and actually asking for directions or reading the manual/instructions. I have no problem with this.
With a decent navigator, I can drive us there. This is my preferred method for automotive transport. That said, I prefer using public transit or my bicycle in the city.

Food: I prefer fresh, healthy ingredients. I'm not against deep frying things, but won't generally make it my first choice. French fries though, those are their own food group. They are their own SACRED food group.
Games. I'm a gamer. I don't stick to one genre, I like a variety.
My awesome friends. I have the best friends a man could hope for. Asking to have friends of this caliber would be greedy. I'm fucking blessed.
Hot Shower. Usually I have my daily shower right before bed.
My dogs. They're better behaved than most kids, and yet still aren't allowed in the store or on the plane. Pretty much bullshit.
Humor/Sarcasm. It gets a guy through the darkest of times. Also, I wish I could occasionally watch my life third person. Regularly, the weirdest stuff happens to me and you just can't script these things.
My friends far away
...you want to help me with my tattoo design.
...you have a story to share.
