I'm a military brat, so I make lasting friends easily. I am compassionate, intelligent and giving. I am on pace to achieve my career aspirations. Currently, my two competing plans are. Plan A: gaining enough experience to begin applying for Flight Nursing positions. I am most interested in Helicopter Emergency Medical Services and Critical Care Transport. My other aspiration is to go to Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist school, this would be a very intense Masters program. The two plans represent A) Fun B) Money, respectively. I'm not really into money, but working hard for 2 years now going to CRNA school, will open opportunities in my life that only money can unlock... But, being a flight nurse is really all I [i]want[/i] to do...Hopefully I can find a way to do both. So what I'm juggling is school and work. I need to finish my BSN and I am also trying to finish up my Paramedic's License. The Paramedic's license is just slowing me down at this point, but I LOVE EMS sooooo much... I just want it. If you haven't noticed by now, I thrive on intensity. This is countered by a very laid back personality. I am open minded and have traveled the world. I still have 3 continents that I want to visit... just because I don't really have much interest in Antarctica... (unless you're inviting!)
Most importantly, I am looking for someone who wants to travel the world until we find that golden place of well being from which to focus our energy and make this world a place that we want to live in.
I am an avid rockclimber, I enjoy reading about medicine, especially advanced critical care concepts. I love art, animals, the outdoors. I absolutely love dogs and I abhor kitty litter boxes inside the house (oh that acrid odor!).... But I still love cats.
I love any music made by a musician. I taught myself a little guitar and bass, love to sing (but can't hold a note) and all of these things have culminated in a wide and collective taste in music, some of my favorites are ultra mega popular - Marley, Beatles, Hendrix, Dj Spooky, J 5, Wyclef, Blockhead, Galactic, WSP, Dead, Dead Kennedy's, Operation Ivy, Mingus, G love, Coltrane, Bjork, Puscifer. the list goes on and on...
Things that make me unique:
I am a complete person and I love myself (although i work for self improvement.)
I know what I want.
I am very inclusive, I truly believe this "separation" that humanity shares is just an illusion.
I have my insecurities completely within my power, or at least I can communicate appropriately about negative feelings, without displacing blame.
I don't expect you to make me happy, my happiness is derived from within.
I do not present you with unrealistic expectations.
I understand that relationships take work and that there are ups and downs.
I WILL NOT TRY TO CHANGE YOU.
What I'm looking for:
A complete, happy person, who still wants to grow. I am looking for a best friend. I am looking for someone who wants to be around me without changing me. I am looking for someone who likes outdoor activities... If you don't want to climb with me, you at least have to learn how to belay (just kidding). I want someone who likes to go on a ski trip every year, or more, or someone who wants to live closer to the mountains. I am looking for a traveling partner. I looking for someone to explore the universe, or hey why not the multiverse?! I am looking for someone who can be herself, so I can be myself with you. Bonus points for knowing what you want and asking for it.
What I am not looking for:
Poor communicators (i'm not a mind reader... but I can read your face so just say something!!)
Money/Power hungry people.
People who don't know themselves (or are not trying to)
I am not looking to replace anyone's Father. That being said, I am an affectionate and loving person, I would never deny love to a child. I've worked and volunteered with troubled youth before. I am not immediately ready to father my own children...yet; although, I am open to the fact that this may change. If not, I'll adopt kids when I'm fifty, there are plenty of kids who need a home.
If you read all that and you are interested, mail me, i'll send you my cell number. I am open to chatting online or through email first, or meeting casually (no pressure). I AM looking for new friends also, so even if there is no romantic interest, I'm always up for activity partners, climbing, biking, music, coffee, dancing.
Lastly, I work night shift. As it is now, I work overtime every week, just because I'm not really going out. I don't always plan on working overtime, but I do plan on being on night shift for a while.
Thanks for stopping by, Jimi
