My self-summary
-I'm interested in almost everything (read: curious)
-I'm very comfortable with myself
-I like to tinker, building, fixing, hacking, and making things
-Love food and will eat just about anything, certainly will try anything.
-The most annoying thing someone can do is not be straight forward
-I'm fed up with flaky people - if you don't want to do something, are busy or whatever it is, just be an adult and tell me, I'm an adult and can handle it.
-honesty isn't just a good policy, it's also my policy. If my honesty is too forthright for you I'm sorry, I mean no harm but it is who I am.
-I don't play games with people, I don't believe in it, I'll tell you how I feel, diplomatically. I like to live by: Say what you mean, and mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
-I love movies, pop culture, high culture, and junk culture (it's all great and valuable)
-When I sleep I'm almost always warm, generally don't move at all, and unfortunately wake really easily
-I take great pride in my home (St. Louis, the Midwest) and the teams that represent my home, Cardinals!, Blues
-intelligence is a key for, witty/clever is a plus, interesting a must, and while I'd love to be able to say it's not true I need to be attracted as well
-I'm a technophile and love everything that encompasses this
-I love my job
-I finished P90X straight through and frankly I'm pretty proud of myself for doing it.
-I'm peculiar and particular and I'm not ashamed of it
-just about anything worth anything takes work, hard work
-I'm an organized person
-I like doing fun stuff and am almost always up for anything but I also like relaxing quiet time a lot, and need my own space too
-I'm not clingy and if you're looking for someone to follow you around and need you every minute of the day keep looking, oh and -I'm not fond of super needy people either (that being said it's kind of a pet peeve of mine when people take eons to respond to stuff. Could just be my experience at work talking but I feel like it shouldn't take people a week to respond)
-I don't claim to know a lot but like to try to know at least a little about a lot (see curiosity above)
Hope this thing doesn't come off as too direct or even sophomoric. I mean it with the utmost sincerity. I think that's all I can think of for now. I'm sure I'll add more later at some point. Feel free to shoot me a message.
What I’m doing with my life
Just trying to learn a little and enjoy myself. Oh and I'm pretty happy shaping children's lives blah blah blah (but in all seriousness I do love my career)
I’m really good at
I wouldn't really say that I am really good at any one thing. But more of a jack of all trades. Rather I enjoy a number of different things. I guess I'm pretty good at tech stuff, it's a big passion of mine. Just ask and I'll tell you what I know or don't know about it.
The first things people usually notice about me
-That I tend to notice really weird stuff and have a different perspective than most on even the most mundane of things.
-I have chronic hiccups, and most people are comfortable around me. (these two things are unrelated)
-My mind is frequently all over the place, it's really hard to predict
-I'm pretty detail oriented.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All of these questions are entirely unfair because I love them all so much and I mean this as no cop out. (I'll just list some of my recent likes)
Books: Nine Stories, anything Vonnegut, about to start The Master Switch and really excited about it (started...it's dense as hell but fascinating).
Movies: Please just ask this is really a discussion rather than a list. (But I do love garbage, like eighties & 90's action movies annnnd classic stuff like Singin' in the Rain, The Sandlot, Back to the Future, The Big Lebowski, Brazil)
Music: Has changed over time but I like a little bit of everything. Really almost everything (including but not limited to Elliott Smith, Brother Ali, E-603, M83, Mozart, Dave Brubeck, and all sorts of guilty pleasures like pop crap)
I love candy but am really really into trying Retro Candy, favorite right now is the VALOMILK, you get some serious street cred if you even know what it is. (other than delightfully delicious)
Food: I love it all (full stop!)
Six things I could never do without
Blue pen, sharpie, my wallet, keys, and cell phone other than that I guess I'm not really sure, well I suppose a toothbrush would be nice. This is really just the stuff I carry on me at all times sans the toothbrush.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Roughly everything and anything (once again curious, I find myself watching "How It's Made on the science channel more than I'd like to admit), what I'm going to eat next to what direction my life is going.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing or hanging out with friends, but generally taking it easy, I'm not a huge bar goer or partier, but am more than down for an adventure at the drop of a hat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty much an open book. But it's up to you to ask. Then again for fun, I suppose I'm willing to admit that I like tinkering/hacking for fun, so it's not like I have tons of Rube Goldberg machines strewn about the house but I do tweak stuff all over the place to make things work better and do more so that they are just right. Why is this private you ask? Good question, most people see the things and think they are eccentric and funny. So I try to keep quiet about them until I know someone a bit better, fair?
