My self-summary
My name is Terry and I have three children (all girls), ages 22, 18, and 11 even though they don't live with me I try to spend quality time with them. I come from a large family and grew up poor so I can appreciate the luxuries of life. I am into technolgy and new toys but don't consider myself a geek. I am non-judgmental a rare quality to have. Quick insert do you really read these profiles or am I the only one: message me if you noticed this off the subject sentence. I consider my self in tune with human nature and therefore am pretty forgiving. I like having epiphanies or that A-HA! moment when I see the other side of a debate or argument. Life is what you make of it. I think what makes me unique is that I make others feel confident and I am easy to talk to. I try to be kind of laid back, really hard to get me ruffled.
What I’m doing with my life
Working and having a good time with everything. You only get one chance at this life so have fun. I will not allow myself to be surrounded by people who are downers. Not to be cliche, BUT, Carpe Diem, YOLO and all that jazz.
I’m really good at
Random Googling
Timing microwave popcorn perfectly
Slow texting
Regular Jeopardy (not double or final)
Bad picture taking
Randomly singing out loud even if I don't know the lyrics.
Not acting put out when someone ask me to do something I really don't want to do
Fast-forwarding the DVR through commercials
De-friending "acquaintances" on Facebook
Actually reading a profile before looking at the pictures
Pretending I like ALL sports.
Getting your pen to work when you need it.
Pronouncing the word onomatopoeia.
Holding back the giggles when I should even though I want to laugh my butt off.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically--my glasses and crew-cut, otherwise people feel that they can open up to me (not that I always want that, I mean sometimes its OK), so I guess they notice my ability to put them at ease.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I recently read all of David Sedaris' books but I am pretty open when it comes to reading, with books I can go from "Diary of a Wimpy Kid' to something deep like Carl Sagan's "Demon-Haunted World."
Movies: I like comedies, and suspense/horror movies; my favorite movie is "The Wizard of Oz" because all the main characters found they had what they thought they lacked (made me think).
Shows: Breaking Bad, Big-Bang Theory, Family Guy, Cops, Intervention, Teenage Aqua Hunger Patrol. I also like to go to plays, live theatre.
Music: Paul Simon, Kimya Dawson, Counting Crows, BNL, Moldy Peaches, Nirvana, but always trying to expand my horizons.
Food: Not a big fan of pasta, but I do like a good mac and cheese, pretty much I am willing to try anything when it comes to food.
Six things I could never do without
Family and friends are a given.
Technology and its' accessories: Computer, internet, phone, DVR.
The light bulb.
Duct tape.
The cold side of the pillow.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to harness the power of Tourette's syndrome.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am open to any Friday night adventure. I'm not into the bar scene, but will go see a good band. I sometimes play cards or games with friends and other times catch up on my DVR. Friends can rely on me to be the Designated Driver if necessary, and occasionally I am the one to "party."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What PRIVATE thing I am willing to admit. I killed a Chia pet accidentally, Sad songs make me tear up (I didn't say cry), thought Boy-George was totally cool, New Years Eve of Y2K I hid under my bed, in first grade it was me who peed on the bathroom seat even though my teacher blamed Evan Pfleider an I let him take the fall...if you want more buy my book or click that message button!
