My self-summary
So I'm revamping this profile a bit because it has probably been years since I've made any relevant changes. Sorry in advance for the rambling.

I will say that I've had little measurable success with this site (meaning none). But that's party why I'm still here I suppose. I'm truthfully not expecting much anymore (after a few years on here now), but in the spirit of optimism I yet remain!

So, what to say about myself...

So I don't make a ton of money, but I relatively enjoy my job. I foresee myself enjoying it more too, because I am being groomed for a higher position.

I took a job at a garage. I am not a mechanic or a technician, yet. But I went there looking to learn practical skills. And boy am I learning them!!

I say "practical" because I have a degree in English (with a minor in philosophy), and while I appreciate and enjoy the fields, I didn't know how to change my own oil etc. I've since rectified this.

I appreciate being self-sufficient because I've spent most of my life being marginally inept.

I value accountability and honesty.

Even though I love making lists, I'm not terribly organized haha.

My level of coordination is very bipolar. I'll be clumsy enough to injure myself one day, the next I'll have uncanny reflexes.

I tend to be super nerdy.
And though I've since lost touch with a lot of the math and fine details of practical science, I've never stopped loving the sciences since childhood.
I love comics, movies, anime, video games, D&D.
And I like to write (especially poetry, though I haven't written anything worthwhile in some time).

I enjoy tennis, camping, writing, and probably anything interactive that's educational.

And lastly, there is no good place to put this on my profile, and I think it's kinda a big deal because it might be a turn-off for some but:
I don't really care much for most of my family. Most of them are not worth my time between drugs, shallow/immature and flaky attitudes, or being really entitled/conceited. I don't go for that shit.
And many of them have made absolutely no trouble of including me in their lives, so I treat them likewise.

To me, real relationships are the ones you spend years building with blood, time and money. (Not implying you buy friends, more like people you care about become a financial priority).
What I’m doing with my life
Job, 40+ hours a week. Weekend = rec time to plan D&D sessions, game night with friends, chores necessitated by living on one's own. etc... Video games/netflix/reading in the evenings most typically.

Currently investing heavily into tools to further my means of assuming larger tasks at work. Also looking to build resources to begin a hobby, which I will hopefully get off the ground sometime this summer.

I guess you could say my budget has been spread pretty thin. I take overtime where I can get it.
I’m really good at
nothing useful I guess haha. Harsh truth, or my own worst critic?

I'm not as reliable as I want to be, but I'm a damn good friend.
I'm not terribly confident, so likewise I'm pretty modest/honest.
I don't like seeing a deficit within myself and not do anything about it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I dunno.

Nerdy, hair cut, broken glasses, vocabulary.... who knows?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love lots of things so, I won't bother narrowing it down much. I will say that I don't watch much anymore, so it takes me a while to notice newer shows (at which point they aren't really new anymore).

But I am an aficionado of stories and character development.

A few biggies are
Firefly, John Green, Patrick Rothfuss, Geek and Sundry, Acquisitions Incorporated, Tarantino, Marvel.

I'm pretty picky about anime. YuYuHakusho, FMA, berserk, hajime no ippo. Those are like the big ones I guess. There are a handful of favorites I revisit occasionally. I suppose I would be remiss if I didn't mention Miyazaki.

Johnny Cash, CCR, Zac Brown, Green Day, Blink 182, Offspring, Lynard Skynard, Queen.

Occasionally, I find myself really enjoying musicals. I haven't seen many though.

Food: Yes.
Six things I could never do without
-Pocket Knife
-The Internet
-pocket notebook
-Optimism, because life is hard enough.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Romance apparently, because here I am.

Admittedly it's awkward to advertise this online, but I'm a bit lonely sometimes. Just looking for some company.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, on the internet.

A very occasional outing with close local friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
mmm, ask me something
You should message me if
Uh, I generally have no clue how to begin conversations on this site, so if you think we might have something in common, I urge you to be the conversation starter! :)
