When I'm not at my job, I have lots of stuff to keep me busy. #1 in my life is my dog Loki. He is a Dutch Shepherd and he is the best dog in the world.
Other things I like to do...Well, I love being outside during the warm seasons. Kayaking is something I love to do with a pack of friends...Just being in the water feels like home to me sometimes. On the side of sports, I like racquetball, soccer, volleyball, hackeysack (though I'm nowhere near as good as I used to be.) Oh and sword fighting...Don't worry, they are padded swords. I'm not a big fan of major league sports...I don't follow specific teams or anything like that. Though if I'm in a bar having a drink and a game is on, I will most likely follow it while I"m there. I love to listen to audiobooks. Also while I'm not proficient at it, I like to draw. I have a story that I feel needs to be told and I feel that I could tell it in a comic sort of way.
Oh and I drum. I drum all the time. I used to play drums in an
alternative band (ages ago.) We played at many different venues and we thought we were all that (and a bag of chips!) Nowadays I play a hand drum (called a doumbek) I've played at medieval events around the fire and for countless belly dancers. Its very refreshing to show up at a drum circle of friends and they make a spot for you and wait for your lead. Playing a musical instrument is just part of me...I might
not do it all of the time anymore, but the beat is still there in my heart.
I'm also a big fan of medieval societies. SCA, Dagorhir Belegarth and RenFaire...Any excuse to get dressed up funny and wander around outside is a bonus for me.
What I'm looking for...Well that seems pretty simple...Someone just as awesome as me to share the world with...Not like in the 'you take half, and I take half.' but more like lets explore and experience everything we ever wanted together. Sure there will be obstacles in the road, and times where we each need space, but I just want someone there who will have my back as I set out to live life (and I will have their back as well.) I realize that is a very simple (and yet broad at the same time) statement, but there is no way to condense what I want in a partner into a paragraph, or even a whole page.
What I'm not looking for. I'm not looking for someone who isn't going to treat me like I deserve. I know we all have rough times, but I feel that I am pretty special and deserve someone who is going to care for me. I'm not a fan of lies, rudeness, racist attitudes, and general hostility. That's just not something I want or am willing to tolerate in my life.
