Hello, I'm Nick. I'm quirky. I'm abstract. I'm obtuse. I'm driven by my desire to obtain knowledge and make meaning of it. I aspire to be an intellectual, but I don't foster any illusions of self-importance. I don't want to come across as a pretentious douchebag. I'm writing this at 2:23 AM so clearly I'm a night owl. I find myself seeking meaningful and mutual understanding. I love learning and I love sharing information and ideas. I'm not particularly outdoorsy (though I'm not opposed to it necessarily), so I tend to be a homebody, a lost child raised on a steady diet of media consumption and internet. I'm sometimes clever and funny though I'm not going to pretend that this profile is necessarily a reflection of that. Just trust me, okay? You could say I'm a Woody Allen fan in an Adam Sandler world. I'm an INFP if you're an MBTI follower such as myself. Anything else you'd like to know, feel free to ask. I'm always a fan of questions.
You could have done that on your own, but I was nice enough to spare you the extra clicks of a mouse and keyboard. You're welcome.
Some of my favorites include: The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Great Gatsby, Frankenstein, American Psycho, The Catcher in the Rye, Animal Farm, 1984, Wuthering Heights, Hamlet. I really love Nietzsche and other amazing 18th/19th century minds.

There are a ton of other documentaries I really enjoyed that I'm not naming to spare your attention span.

You make decisions without your television.
You appreciate idealism despite the limitations of reality and pragmatism.
You think Fox News is vile.
You have a personal relationship with reality.
You enjoy oddball abstract conversations.
You never stopped asking questions and felt dissatisfied with the answers you were given by others.
