My self-summary
I grew up in a rural setting, but for the past 7 years I’ve been enjoying urban living. Skittles just a walk away:) I work full time as a caregiver for people with disabilities. Although my job doesn't define me, one can infer a fair amount from it. I believe i am a patient and considerate person. I have always had a passion for psychology and use it to help people when appropriate. I’m a chill Irishman trying to go to as many festivals and shows as possible while establishing myself as a young professional.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm really proud and excited about graduating from KU(BA), but at the same time anxious about upcoming GRE exams and grad school. School or the possibility of working/interning/fellowship, getting experience. Someday I would like to work inside the American prison system, in which i would i apply my psychological research to create programs that reduce recidivism and costs. For now, I am working full time and saving money for a graduate program. Oh, and loving Lawrence.
I’m really good at
Researching and writing.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Permaculture and progression of renewable/sustainable energy. Earthship homes are AMAZING. Exploring old abandoned buildings and ghost-towns. The past and emerging roles of prison systems. GITMO. Creatures with unusual phenotypes as a result of filling highly specific niches (e.g. moles & Anglerfish). Octopuses have THREE hearts and jellyfish have neither a heart nor a nervous system, wtf nature you're awesome. How neat it is to have a giant prefrontal cortex that analyzes itself constantly. Interpreting dreams. 3d printing, it is to thank for a new windpipe that saved a baby about to die! How to balance wealth and stress, i specifically ponder how much education i will need in order to live a comfortable life without becoming a slave to a corporation, making sure my tie doesn't turn into a noose. Actually learning to tie a tie. I've watched a ton of youtube videos and i still don't get it. why don't i get it.. it always comes out ridiculous. Music is also a focus, I spend a fair amount of time seeking out new artists every day. I especially like EDM, chillstep, electro soul, trap, ambient/trance, blues, OLD country(Cash, Nelson, Williams Sr.)..
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on what specials are going on. If there's a cool show or drink deal it's likely i'm taking advantage of that, but otherwise chilling with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I lost my first baby teeth, the front two, scrapping unsuccessfully outside of a wedding. They were lost in the grass and despite searching for what felt like forever i was unable to find them and consequently was unable to submit them to the tooth fairy.. fists were shaken toward the heavens. I was left with a mouth full of blood and no money on the way.. needless to say it was a tense car ride home. I looked like a rabbit for years to follow.
You should message me if
I seem like your type, or if you want to know more about me. That goes for faults too, this website asks questions that set me up to seem perfect, but i'm not. Ask me about math and i will tell you a tale of struggle. I see it this way, if we seem to click while messaging we can meet up and go for a walk with my dog. I'm guessing if you're messaging me, you live in Lawrence, otherwise you must like my profile a LOT.hah The cool thing about walking my dog for a "first date" is 1) Otis has a blast 2) There are no worries of food stuck in teeth and/or feelings of debt, if you believe there is no potential future between us you could ideally say i don't think we're compatible and we'd go our separate ways. I'm new to online dating so forgive me if i'm over-thinking the process.
