My self-summary
I'm pretty cool sometimes.
Ron Swanson is my spirit animal.

I'm just a go-with-the flow kind of guy that doesn't like to stress over the little things in life. I would much rather appreciate them.
My sense of humor can be a bit on the sarcastic/dry side, but a little sarcasm never hurt anyone. At least not that I know of.
I can also be a little bit reserved and more of an observer at times. I just really like to soak in my surroundings.
The way I see it, it makes me a great listener and I pay attention to even the smallest of details about things and people.

I like good music, good films, good food, and good people.

I'm just me. For better or worse.

Basically I'm here looking for friends, lovers, soul-mates, future exes, well-wishers, acquaintances, partners in crime, arch-nemeses...
What I’m doing with my life
Contemplating grad school.

Probably watching a Law and Order: SVU marathon. Cuz there's always one on.
I’m really good at
Being awesome.
Locking my keys in my car.

I'll tell you what I'm not good at. Handshakes. I never know what people are gonna do. Are they just gonna go for the traditional squeeze, shake, and let go? Or are they gonna do some fancy moves. I always seem to guess wrong. Thus making my handshaking an awkward moment.

I'm also not good at opening champagne. Or those Pilsbury biscuits and cinammon rolls in the tube. Basically anything that pops when you open it.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm..I don't know. My eyes maybe.
I also get told that I look familiar a lot.
Oh, and that I look a lot younger than I am.

The six things I could never do without
Parents. They're awesome and they are why I exist.
Car.
Thumbs.
Cheese.
Teeth. For eating cheese.
Oh and my glasses. You'll be a blur to me without them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future and when will we have hover boards?
Why Taco Bell doesn't sell breakfast tacos?
Edit: taco bell now has breakfast. Still waiting for hover boards...real ones that actually hover.
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends...at home, hanging out with friends. napping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once hit a parked car and drove away and didn't leave a note.
I know, I'm terrible. Not my best moment.
You should message me if
You're awesome and think I'm awesome.
You want to go on a road trip.
You want to go on a date. We don't even have to call it a date if you don't want to.
