I am currently attending Purdue for Mechanical Engineering Technologies. Kind of like engineering, but more old-school. Purdue Engineering, as opposed to Engineering Technologies, has gotten much more scientific. I made my decision early on I was not a scientists. I want to get my hands dirty when I am building the future of our society, and you can't do that with just a brain. In any case, I got my Associate's and now I'm working toward the rest of my four years. We'll see where it goes from there.
If you've never met an engineer before, well, prepare to start feeling like some punk keeps running his mouth and insulting your intelligence with his ignorant and egomaniacal remarks. Because that's what us engineers will unwittingly do in every social situation. Zero social sensitivity. So, does that make us douchebags? Nah, we just don't get out much.
I hope you are at least laughing a little. My sense of humor is a little twisted. If it hurts anybody's feelings, it's not on purpose...except for when it is...
I am an aspiring artist of sorts. My above listed interests basically describe my free time. I may or may not lead you to believe I am adventurous. I like airsoft, but I'm not all hardcore competitive about it. Me and the guys just like to run around in the woods and shoot each other with bb guns. If you don't like how it stings, go play lazer tag.
I love the Metal. Never before have I seen such community, such solidarity, as a bunch of people close-packed in front of the stage rockin' out. You may not know the people squished up next to you, but you all share a bond through the love of the Metal. And any metalhead there will gladly bum out a smoke to someone in need. That's ideal community. Everyone's a friend, even if nobody knows you. And then there's the music. So much power, so much inspiration. Those things you read on your little internet articles about the Metal making kids depressed: Unfounded! Kids who get depressed listening to the Metal have a preexisting condition known as "depression." It's where you get depressed easily. Honestly, it doesn't matter how schytty I am, when I listen to the Metal, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and I can take on any adversity and do it with smiles on face.
What's important in a relationship to me? Integrity, for one thing. You don't have to tell me all your deepest darkest secrets, but just don't lie because you're afraid of the truth, or because you're trying to be "nice" about it. It's easier to keep your stories straight when you don't lie, and I personally would rather have the truth kick me squarely in the face than to have it sneak up on me from behind. I'd say after integrity comes humility. I don't give a flying **** what kinda perfect overachiever you are if all you do is compare yourself to me. It's entirely unflattering to your image when you look down your nose at people. Seriously, whatever makes you feel better about yourself, it need not be at the expense of another's dignity.
What makes me unique? Lack of transparency. You ever notice those people who you take a look at them and you're like, "there's gotta be something wrong with that guy!" But then it turns out he's completely normal. He's like a pineapple. Fresh pineapples are delicious. Pineapples look all messed up and stuff with the prickles and dead brownish color on the outside. But on the inside, they're legit. So, in conclusion, think of me as being like a pineapple -- albeit one that you cut open to find it's infested with centipedes.
Well, for those of you who are still here, thanks for sitting through my presentation. We got coffee and doughnuts out in the lobby, if you have any questions I will be glad to answer them to the best of my knowledge. If you want to IM me, just PM me first. Peace.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something that gives an opportunity to talk and converse, get to know each other, find common ground. You know, get past that awkward stage of "dead air...um...dead air."
Also, lets go ahead and rule out anything that might cause you to humiliate yourself in front of your date. Like trying to go bowling when you already know you can't keep the damn ball in your own lane, and pissing off the douchebag in the lane next to you so he can beat the sh8t out of you in front of your date.
Or trying to go to the beach only to get suckered into a sand volleyball game after she reassures you with "it's OK, I'm not that good at vollyball either," which you find out very shortly that what she meant by that was she only made if to state semi-finals on the girls varsity team in high school. Meanwhile, it does not take long to piss off the guys on your side of the sandvolleyballcourt because you're making them get their asses kicked by a bunch of girls in volleyball, and so in turn the guys take it upon themselves to make YOU get YOUR ass kicked by them, ensuring your total humiliation in front of your date. Girl goes home with better-looking sandvolleyballplayerguyperson while you try to drown yourself.
Wow, I don't hear any laughs. Tough crowd tonight...
