Greetings! The name's Jakob - Norwegian-blooded, Cali-born, Nebraska-raised, now residing in Tucson, Arizona and I wouldn't have it any other way, as this city is absolutely incredible, grit and all. I'm currently in the Air Force, with a little over a year left before I get out and return to school full-time as a civilian. In the meantime, simply enjoying life while preparing to return to civilian life, and also hoping to meet a special someone (more on that later).
The first thing to know about me is I'm a huge, HUGE film buff - along with an excessive DVD & Blu-Ray collection that may or may not consist of over 700 movies, I write reviews once in a while on a small blog and I may or may not fancy the idea of making a movie or two in my lifetime. Additionally, I'm also very much a rivethead, enthusiastic about the entire spectrum of industrial music, but especially partial to early-90s dark electro (Leaether Strip & :wumpscut: are my favorites) - I even picked up DJing (DJ Sado_Naut is my moniker), a hobby I had no idea I needed in my life.
I'm quite proud of how I've turned out as a person, and I credit that pride to three things: humility, moderation, and a sense of humor. I think it's always important to be humble and ask yourself, no matter how sure you are, "what if I'm wrong?". Overindulgence in any regard is an open invitation for some kind of trouble, hence moderation. And, finally, learn to laugh at the world as well as yourself - to quote one of my very favorite films, "Laugh and the world laughs with you; weep and you weep alone" (bonus points if you know the movie).
As I said earlier, I am also looking for romantic companionship, hence my presence here. It's difficult for me to say *exactly* what I'm looking for - I've always said "I know her when I see her" (I think one potentially misses out by clinging to too many ideals), but I can confidently say that I'm looking for a relationship that will last long-term. It's worth noting that I've been single my whole life, once because I just didn't know how the whole dating-thing worked, but now I'm single by choice, as I'd rather hold out for somebody truly worthwhile. But it would be amazing if I could meet a fellow goth/rivethead/punk type!
Final note: I am open to the idea of long-distance relationships.
