I realized that since the main focus of this blog was me waiting for Hannah I have focused, almost entirely, on Hannah. In a totally unselfish way I've come to realize that I am also a main character in the odyssey, so I'm going to try to give myself a bit of a plug here.
I'm about 6'3", I think it's a good height, tall enough to be taller than a majority of people I know, but not so tall that it's freakish and makes me stand out. I'm about 180-190 lbs, I feel like I'm skinny to average build, I know coaches would always tell me I should shoot for 210-215 lbs to fill out, and I'm still trying. I have brown hair that's lighter brown when it's short to almost black when it's long, but I like to keep it short. I have blue eyes and I was blessed with dimples, I paired these so I could tell you that most girls tell me that they, along with my height, are my best physical features.
As far as who I am and how I carry myself, people see me as an athlete, in high school I guess the clique I most fit into was with the "athletes." I wasn't a jock, I never thought playing sports made me better than anyone, I didn't play to be cool, I had always played and it was fun. I feel like I was reasonable popular, people from high school will recognize me even if I don't recognize them(which always makes me feel weird because I'm really good at remembering faces). Shame to say, but I did tend to play a little dumb in high school, I was so scared of being a geek again after middle school that I tried to play it off like I didn't really care about school, but I did.
Under the surface, I'm still a really big geek, but no one I meet knows that. I'll admit it, I'm a Trekkie, I've seen every Star Trek movie, and probably almost every episode of every TV series. Of course I was at the latest Star Trek movie opening night in my Star Trek "red-shirt." I've even dabbled in comic books in the past. I think what makes me truly geeky though is that fact that I can sit with one of my geeky friends and have a 2 hour long conversation/debate about things that are completely hypothetical.
On the outside you could say I'm your average sports-watching, old-man-softball-playing, Utah guy, I won't stand out in a crowd, but I've still been told girls find me attractive. On the inside I'm like Justin Long's character in Galaxy Quest. I think that makes me a well-rounded person, and I think there's something to say for well-rounded people.
