I don't believe you can understand or get to know somebody accurately just through written words, but I will try. I'm currently 31 and I am interested in a broad range of things from computers & electronics to pharmacology and medicine. I successfully took a two-week accelerated EMT course that normally takes 4+ months & am a certified EMT now. I was hired by Purdue's computing division (IT@P) 3 months after I turned 16. I did a variety of things from setting up wireless networking on Pocket and Tablet PCs, as well as maintaining the thousand plus computers in ITaP labs, and finally fixing problems with WebCT Vista online course management. As far as me personally, I tend to be very shy at first, especially around new people, places, or crowds. I may either be very quiet, or you won't be able to shut me up at first! LOL. I would like to think that I am a caring and kind person; I know that I am a good listener and with training from N.A.M.I. (National Alliance for Mental Illness) and used to volunteer there as a mentor teaching classes, I personally believe I have good counseling skills if someone has a problem they want help with. I'm quiet, contained, flexible, tolerant, and adaptable; an unseen observer until a problem appears then I act rapidly to find a solution. I have an unusual ability to focus in depth in areas that interest me and focus in depth. I seek to develop logical explanations and solutions for everything that interests me as well as any problems that may appear. I am often theoretical & abstract and I'm interested in cause and effect, organizing facts using logical principles and value efficiency to analyze what makes things work and often sort through large amounts of data to find the information I want or need to isolate the core of practical problems. I am usually skeptical, always analytical of everything around me and internally critical of others and especially of myself. I while being shy am NOT more interested in ideas than social interaction! I just am not good with social interaction prolly because Ive had a lot of bad social experiences. For fun, I like to just kinda hang out and chill. I love going to movies, maybe a bar/club afterwards or a party if there is one. I do drink some on social occasions, but never alone. When I'm alone I tend to listen to music, browse the web, or watch TV/movies, chat online & TXT/call friends. In conclusion if there is anything that you want to know about me just ask!
