I like to help people with their homework and talk to them about serious issues in their lives. I like to think about the future and where we as people are headed. I feel like I want to learn until I die, but settling for learning job skills at this point would probably be the best thing, since school isn't free anymore.*
I am honest, caring, and intelligent
*School isn't free, but the Stafford Loan is available, at least...
Oh, on the job front, I actually ended up getting a full-time position in a place with snazzy benefits. I hope to be getting a promotion soon, but we'll see with this murky economy. "What good is an econ degree if you can't predict the future?" one may ask. It enables one to explain, with sound-bite-worthy jargon, why the economy collapsed and then debate with other economists. It's kind of like assexual reproduction.
2. I'm pretty tall (6'1") but not so tall as to scare the wee villagers.
3. I'm an unabashed nerd about a lot of things. (By this I mean an amateur enthusiast, which means I could be a nerd about, say, cars. You've met these guys before, I'm sure.)
4. I'm very interested in talking, laughing and having a good time when it's late at night, or sometimes really early in the morning.
(Staying up all night talking to people is apparently just a thing I do. I have to be told to stop, seriously...)
5. I'm pretty sure that I'm handsome, but of course that's subjective.
Favorite books: Dune, Sense and Nonsense about Crime and Drugs, Neurology and Philosophy, Catcher in the Rye, Freakonomics, The Chronicles of Prydain, The Female Brain, No Exit, Lies My Teacher Told Me, The Politics, The Wealth of Nations, The Watchmen, a lot of Marvel Comics (Captain America especially)... I like a lot of sci-fi and philosophy stuff, too, but really have only touched the tip of the iceberg in either category.
Favorite movies: Pay It Forward, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, I <3 Huckabees, Fargo, Hard Candy, The old Star Wars trilogy,(mostly because of muppets) Silence of the Lambs, Goodfellas, Fargo, Se7en...what the hell is up with me and crime movies?
Favorite music: Firewater, Ghost, Queens of the Stone Age, Daft Punk, Kyuss, Muse, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Black Keys, White Stripes, Justice, Cursive, The Killers, Bill Withers, Frank Sinatra, The Rat Pack, Bing Crosby, Vienna Teng, The Strokes...these are my favorites but I've been known to listen to much more, even if just to try it. And the Beatles. For fuck's sake, how could I have forgotten THE BEATLES? That's what I get for typing this thing up in 20 minutes when I first made it.
Favorite foods: My friend is trying to get me started on a carb cycle diet, but I like spinach and bacon a lot, so this could work out really well.
~*Bonus*~: Least favorite food: Cilantro. It tastes like soap to me...
2. A car or at least a bike for travel.
3. My friends.
4. My family.
5. Some kind of all-purpose knife for survival? (I'm reaching here.)
6. My ability to apparently need few things to survive.
I am coming to see the appeal behind the near-universal resentment towards this particular section of the profile... Why 6? Not only is it arbitrary, it's literally the most boring number under 10. Seriously, other than being the product of the first two prime numbers, it has very little going for it.
The future and what it holds...
Classes I would take if I had a bottomless budget...
How to attain the aforementioned bottomless budget...
I just recently found out that I have combined type ADHD, which explains a large number of my idiosyncrasies and also why I'm not as far along in my life as I'd like to be. Now that I know, I'm going through a lot of changes to keep the bad aspects of it in check while still enjoying the good parts of it.
...you know how to do fun things with math. I just learned how to do square roots by hand the other day, like my dad used to. You never know when you'll be isolated on a desert island and have to do a square root calculation without a calculator, right?
Done now, honest.
