The name is an old joke. A friend told me I was crazy as a teapot, to which I responded "Fish." It was much funnier at the time.
I'm twenty. I work full time, and take what classes I can fit around my schedule. I'm not working on a goal, I'm just trying to find job security. I still live at home, though I'm not sure I'd call it living. I don't know what I'd really enjoy as a career, though I've been able to cross a lot off my list.
I spent a good portion of my growing-up in Germany, then moved to Hawaii, than to here. I've been hear a good couple years, and still in a perpetual state of culture-shock. Indiana is a lot more conservative than anywhere I've been. My politics are somewhere between libertarian and liberal, but definitely left of center.
I love to read books and watch movies, but I'm very picky about what I like. I feel something like 90 percent of movies have poor understanding of plot or pacing. Don't mean to say I hate almost everything I watch, but I'll pick it apart and find parts that could have been done better. I've lately moved more into straight-to-dvd/foreign/etc. There are a couple real gems out there that were passed up by theaters for the artistic masterpiece of Saw 16, If it's a comic book or a video game it can't go wrong!, Another Disaster of an Epic Movie, and Remake that totally didn't need to be remade.
What I really like is depth and development. If a comedy movie is a bunch of one dimensional characters dealing with one unusual situation, or heavily relies on sterotypes, or an action movie is about how this guy was wronged and now killing/beating/exploding his way to justice, or a horror is a bunch of teens being killed in incredibly brutal ways with no chance or effort at surviving, I'll pass.
On a related tangent, I do not watch TV. If a show sounds like something I would like, I get the season dvd and watch it at my leisure, no commercials or having to wait a week for the next episode. There's near zero culture or art out there, and mix that with having to deal with commercials and scheduling, It's just not worth it.
I can get along with anyone, but my best friends are always artists, writers, musicians. Creative people have more interesting things to say, and cooler perspectives on life, the universe and everything.
I've been called argumentative, but I just like to debate- no hard emotions involved. I tend to be able to follow both ways of looking at something, and play devils advocate, just to make people think.
I have a tendency to over think things, which apparently annoys some people. I just like to put my brain to work if I can't do anything else.
Random personal tidbits: I don't drink or smoke or do drugs, at all, out of health concerns. Yet I'm a total junkfoodavore. I don't lie, I can get grouchy sometimes, but I can't hold a grudge or really get angry. I want to be bilingual, but all I have is a rusty smattering of German.
I'm mostly just looking for someone to talk to/hang out/ and have fun with. Life's been getting a bit dull. Anythings possible, though.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
What really matters is that there is conversation. Could do any number of things- but if we aren't talking, it's not a really good way to get to know someone.
The best way I've found to get to know someone "Hi, tell me your life story, and I'll tell you mine."
