My self-summary
Hi there!

10,000ft overview:

I'm always up for learning and trying new things and going on adventures. I enjoy spontaneity and making it up as I go.

I am looking for someone to go on crazy adventures with, to spoil, and to make as happy as humanly possible.

Hobbies:

Some of my hobbies include swing dancing, photography, music (piano, bass (upright and guitar), and drums), the occasional video game (especially if it has a good storyline), and ham radio.

Random:

I have a dog, her name is Skye. She's a German Shepherd. She runs the house and keeps me in line. Usually. I wouldn't trade her for the world.
What I’m doing with my life
I work full-time from my house for a software company. I am also attending YSU part-time to finish my math degree. I've already completed my computer science degree (pending one Ethics class that I still have to take).

I spend a lot of time learning new things. I also enjoy learning/practicing swing dancing, blues dancing, photography, several musical instruments, and playing chess and Tetris.
I’m really good at
...computer things! I enjoy many aspects of computer science and programming, including math.

I am also decent at learning new things fairly quickly, and sticking with something once I start learning it. Additionally, I enjoy writing, though I'm better at technical writing than at creative writing.

I'm working to be good at swing dancing (Lindy Hop, Jitterbug) and blues dancing. It's a lot of fun!

Overall, hopefully I'm good at being a good person who is fun to be around. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I listen to a vast selection of music. Pretty much anything except rap and hip-hop (and even those, I don't hate, I just don't listen to them as much). I like oldies (60s), some country, soft rock, broadway musical songs, swing, jazz, blues, etc.

I generally like comedy or drama movies.

As far as books - I'm not really sure what I'd consider to be my favorite book as of right now. I mostly read nonfiction.
Six things I could never do without
0. Friends/Family; life is too exciting to live it alone!
1. Technology/Computers; at least when they work. :)
2. Ideas and inspiration for new projects; I enjoy staying busy.
3. The ability to learn and be challenged; learning new math concepts or even just playing a game of chess is fun. To that end, I also enjoy the occasional challenging/intellectual discussion with people.
4. Travel - I like going on long trips.
5. The freedom to move between projects. I don't like working on one thing for a large amount of time. I prefer moving around between many projects.
6. Off-by-one errors. Because otherwise I wouldn't be able to make this joke.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about how to improve myself. How to improve my study habits, how to be a better swing/blues dancer, how to more effectively learn about the things I find interesting. How to be better at understanding people and having good conversations.

Also, oxford commas, dogs, and the pursuit of happiness for myself and those in my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
...going out and swing and/or blues dancing, if possible. Otherwise, playing my electric drum set or piano or upright bass, watching a movie, trying to figure out how to fix some code that I wrote three days earlier, or playing a game of chess.

Occasionally, playing a video game, or watching an episode of whatever Netflix show I happen to be binge watching at the time.
You should message me if
- You love learning new things and trying everything.
- You don't mind a weird sense of humor.
