I wonder how can one fully summarize who they are in a paragraph or two, lol. Anyway, I'm a spontaneous, fun-loving, geek who's getting on that crazy dating train hoping to meet new and interesting people!
Want a guy who likes to take things slow? I may be your dude! I like to get to know someone and hopefully become fast friends first.
Laid-back is the name of my game, I tend to not get too upset easily, most of the time anyway. I love to laugh and tend to have a corny sense of humor.
I know some are into the Myers-Briggs thing. I'm a INTJ. :)
To pay for school + the rest of my life I work in IT. I've always been fascinated with technology and I recently got the job I always wanted: IT specialist for a local school district! I am so excited to combine my desire to help others with my tech knowledge.
I'm also trying to get out there and meet new awesome people and make new friends through meetups and other events. I love going to concerts and try to get to one at least once a month. It'd be great to be able to go to a show with someone who shares similar taste in music!
Smelling chocolate chip cookies fresh out the oven.
Picking the most depraved combinations in Cards Against Humanity
Mishearing song lyrics with hilarious results.
Not mishearing what you're telling me - I've been called a great listener and advice-giver.
Awkwardly leaving a dress shirt that didn't have a hanger on the fitting room counter when no one is watching.
Talking your ear off about cars. Or technology. Probably both. Maybe a little too much.
Oh..speaking of cars, I'm good at identifying them from a distance. Like scary good.
My smile, others think its cute, I think it's awkward.
That's all I have, feel free to lemme know what you notice haha.
Freakonomics - I love how the smallest parts of our everyday lives can be dissected, it's fascinating.
Various "Worst-Case Scenario" books - What can I say, I guess I want to be prepared if I'll need to wrestle an alligator on my way to lecture.
Car Guys vs. Bean Counters - business + cars from a legend in the auto industry = need I say more?
Airframe..actually..make that almost anything by Michael Crichton.
Harry Potter series - It's a total guilty pleasure but I don't care haha.
In general, I read a variety of books from biographies to business books.
Overall I enjoy comedies and horror movies. I'm also a bit of a documentary fan, stuff like Who Killed The Electric Car, and Food, Inc. are my sort of speed.
A few favorites: The Slasher, Pineapple Express, Saw I and II, Dumb & Dumber, Anchorman, Zoolander, The Exorcist, Avatar (the blue people, not the movie based on the animated series), Gone Girl, Divergent
I'd be remiss to mention both of the National Treasure movies!
TV? I'm all over the place but a few favorites are Parks and Recreation, Archer, Top Gear, 5th Gear, Hoarders and American Greed. I'm getting into 30 Rock as well.
I'm a sucker for Nightline and My Strange Addiction as well. Anything on Investigation Discovery is a instant watch! Ditto Orange is the New Black and Locked Up Abroad: Why would anyone think that willingly strapping drugs to their bodies for a "free" vacation would be a bright idea?
My current favorite is BoJack Horseman - this show has single handedly saved me from cancelling Netflix.
I like almost all kinds of music...a exception probably being some country music and/or super heavy metal.
I'm recently rediscovering my love for pop-punk music, and listening to the genre has exposed me to other genres like post-hardcore and easycore.
Some favorites include A Day To Remember, Hands Like Houses, Volbeat, Marianas Trench, Trapt, Ed Sheeran, Matt Wertz, Fall Out Boy, Sparks The Rescue, Rihanna, Trey Songz, The Offspring, Blink-182, Real Friends, Yellowcard, Rise Against, Nine Inch Nails, Seether, Three Days Grace, Tycho, and Cage The Elephant, Broadside, Seaway, Handguns, Roam, State Champs, Neck Deep, Knuckle Puck, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! ...the list goes on.
I also listen to a wide variety of podcasts. "Doughboys," "The Weeds," "This American Life," "How Did This Get Made?,""Sick and Wrong" and the "Autoblog Podcast" are a few of my favorites.
I love food, admittedly more of the bad for you stuff than the good, but that's changing. Chinese Food is my main weakness!
I plan on buying a slow cooker and trying to eat more at home.

Is sour cream really sour?
Why is trawling eBay for cool cars that I'll never buy so satisfying?
Do Hollywoo stars and celebrities know things?
My fear of financial calculators
Why I didn't get in on Bitcoin?
You like bacon. (Who doesn't like bacon!?)
You also wonder how the other sock gets lost in the dryer.
You don't care about any of that stuff but want to say hi anyway!
