Nice to meet you. I'm a very outgoing person, always looking for fun new things to do when I'm not working or training. I try to live a balanced life - I work hard during the day, and then play hard with friends evenings and weekends. I try to live a full, exciting life, with new experiences, and I refuse to be placed into anyone's silly, arbitrary boxes. Unless it's a nth dimensional hypercube where n = the number of experiences I've ever had. You can definitely put me into one of those.
I love to try new things. I recently have gotten addicted to climbing, but my other big time sinks are traditional martial arts (Okinawan Karate, Aikido, Sil Lim Hung Gar Kung Fu, Wing Chun, Tai Chi, and a smidgen of BJJ, TKD, and Judo) and swing dance. For those of you familiar with Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences theory (notice the little t), I rock the bodily-kinesthetic and spacial elements like they are going out of style - I think in movement and connections.
Some other activities I enjoy include:
Gardening, anything active outdoors, board games, talking about stuff (politics, technology, whatever), cooking, music (almost anything besides "gansta" rap and country, but most stuff with a good beat or flow), dancing (swing, ballroom, salsa, the club, etc.) going to live shows (comedy, music, art, poetry, whatever).
I'm looking for long term, but taking things slow. That means I'm mostly just looking to meet new people for hanging out in the A2 - new friends. But, if I happen to fall in love on the way, I won't complain.
Fair warning: If you don't like puns, long conversations about life, or dancing, run now.
If I had to sum myself up in three lines, these would be the three:
"Sit and be at peace.
Stand and be strong.
Dance and be happy."
