My self-summary
Hello There!! The most memorable thing about me, truth be told, would have to be the fact that my car accident in 2002 REALLY should have KILLED me, yet it didn't!!!

In fact; bc of my car wreck...I now possess a nifty lil biomedical implant under my belly button called an "Intrathecal Baclofen Pump" that (know, however, that I am NOT in a wheelchair!)...

but anywho, my name is Tom, I blow out my candles on the second of May, & I am 32 years young...

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars."
- Jack Kerouac

I am the epitome of an easygoing, go-with-the-flow type of guy...I am a student at tri-C.

Criticism in a time of war is essential to the maintenance of any kind of democratic government.

Kurt Cobain

"The only time a person should look down on another is when they're helping them up"

"Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday"

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."
~Morrie Schwartz (Tuesdays with Morrie).

TV Shows: Not really a big TV guy; but I'm partial to NCIS, Scrubs, Lie To Me, & as I indicated above, Comedy Central (Mostly Stewart & Colbert...)

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."
~Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they're right, you believe less so you can eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
~Marilyn Monroe

"You have got to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, love what you've got, remember what you had. Always forgive, never forget, learn from mistakes, never regret. People change, things go wrong. But most importantly, you must ALWAYS remember: LIFE GOES ON!"

"Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society."
~Mark Twain

"DREAM as if you'll live FOREVER; [however,] LIVE as if you'll die today."
-James Dean

~William Jennings Bryan.

Music: "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)"

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth it was worth all the while

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
~ James Madison

'When the government fears the people it is a democracy....when the people fear their government it is tyranny...' ~Thomas Jefferson

Those who give up essential liberties for temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. -- Benjamin Franklin

The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive.– Thomas Jefferson

"You have a one-in-one-million chance of getting attacked by a bear. There are so many other things that you should worry about. Like meteors."
~Ben Ripple on camping.
Six things I could never do without
School, Parents/Brother/Family, Friends, Reading/Books, Air Conditioning, the interwebz, the Computer (my mac); hey, I never said that I had much respect for people trying to reign me in; i.e. limit me to a paltry SIX things which I could never do without! hahahahaha
I spend a lot of time thinking about
LIFE...hahahaha...or how about STUFF! I don't know...lets just say that I Spend Most Of My Time THINKING!!

Also....just why, exactly, does a Puma shoe box say..."Average contents, 2." Are there shoe boxes somewhere out there with one or three in them? :) Lol.

It really does...look at one sometime.

Further (sorry mom, gotta get this out there); why does anyone ever make their bed? It's a totally pointless endeavor. All a person ever does is get right back in it about 9-15 hours later. If one has company over, nobody ever goes in their bedroom to see their messed-up bed, either; so, honestly; who gives two shits? Just WHY do we WASTE our LIVES?
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies...At dinner, the movies, out with friends, perfecting my various Thumb-Twiddling Techniques, et al.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing; I am NOT FOND of secrets; My Life is an Open Book
You should message me if
If you are a single female around her 20s, or early 30s, of course... Or, if anyone is Intrigued by anything which they've read thus far, & would just like to chat!
The two of us
