My self-summary
So this is where I am supposed to magically explain who I am and what motivates me in a convenient little box. To be honest, I’m not exactly sure how one should fill these things out. My first reaction is to make some flippant, nonsensical rambling that, at the very least, will manage to amuse someone. And at the most, inspire someone to actually contact me, since I am clearly a clever and quirky individual (as the above mentioned flippant, nonsensical profile would establish). But this requires some sort of actual description, so I will try to cut down on my natural long windedness, and sum myself up in a few sentences with as few ellipses as possible...

I'm relatively outgoing person who, despite the warnings of ever after school special ever made, likes meeting new people and starting up conversations with complete strangers. I would like to think I’m an individualist, that there’s no one else quite like me, but seeing as I’ve yet to meet all 6.721 billion people in the world, I think that would be an unfair assumption to make. We’ll just say there is a very small percentage like me. I am usually chattering away about something, I hate silence and instantly think it’s awkward, so there isn’t much quiet time around me. I’m sarcastic, loud, blunt and too opinionated for my own good and love nothing more than a good, rowdy, debate on said opinions. I embrace my nerdy side. I love reading, music, and a load of other things that most humans tend to enjoy. There. Only one ellipses. I consider that a win.
What I’m doing with my life
Well that's a loaded question. Would it be a cop out to say I don't know? I mean, I am working, which is not exactly the most exiting thing. I'm an optician, and absolutely love what I do. Alas, it means I have a fairly unhealthy addition to purchasing new and increasingly more outrageous eye wear. When asked how many pairs of glasses I have, I usually go with the answer "Not quite enough yet." It's a problem.

In general though, the whole big picture- I still don't know what I am doing with my life. Basically trying to have fun and be happy and not get too caught up in the plans and details. I've discovered life throws curve balls, and all those well laid plans get tossed out the window anyways, so may as well just go with it. I don't have the whole 10 year plan thing laid out all that well.
I’m really good at
I guess if we're in the bragging portion, there are a few things I excel at. In no particular order, they are;
1) Waxing poetic about complete nonsense
2) Spicing up any moment, however fleeting, with a little extra dash of awkwardness
3) Creating plausible and overly thought out survival plans to guide myself through a Zombie apocalypse.
4) Mocking hipsters
5) Writing self indulgent short stories and poetry that no one else will ever read, but using them as a means of proving to myself how much deeper I am than other people.
6) Working the phrase "You used to be cool man, you used to be cool" into conversation at least twice a day
7) Not being graceful
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know, I'm not other people so how can I figure out what they notice? Way to think the questions through there OK Cupid. I would guess it would be my loud, and somewhat obnoxious, laugh. If I'm laughing that is, otherwise, it would probably be some banal and cliched aspect of my appearance.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh man... there really are way too many to name.
Books: LOTR, the Hobbit, actually, Tolkien in general. Anything by Jonathan Kellerman and Jeffery Deaver, The Life of Pi, Londonstani, The Catcher in the Rye, LAMB, Everything is Illuminated, and million others. My tastes are pretty varied. I will admit that I love the whole teen fiction craze right now. It's like skittles for my brain.
Music: I can’t classify the music I listen too, since it changes with my moods. Cop out? Yeah, but it’s true, so deal with that. Top five (at least today) are Arctic Monkeys, The Clash, Scroobius Pip, Gogol Bordello and Hawksley Workman. I can't say that these will be my top five tomorrow, or even in an hour, but that's what's blaring out of my speakers right now, so it seems appropriate. I
Movies/TV: Donnie Darko, Being John Malkovich, Never Back Down, Boondock Saints, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Sherlock, Community, Bad Reality TV, and I'm not ashamed to say it, Glee... Ok, maybe I'm a little ashamed.
Six things I could never do without
I assume this means other than the basic things one needs to survive. So ignoring food, shelter and clothing, I would say: a good book, a big cup of coffee, my phone, my friends, interesting conversation and access to facebook.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I tend to think deep, mind blowing thoughts. Ones so complex that if I wrote them here, you would never be able to look at the world the same way again.

Also I think a lot about socks and whether I have enough of them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out at home, reading and just generally relaxing, or hanging out with friends and causing shenanigans and mayhem
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm terrified of David Bowie....
You should message me if
