On The Surface
I look like an 80's-90's metal head, Ren Faire nerd, or a hippie, none of which I would dispute :)
I may talk serious & matter-of-factly, w/ 3+ syllable words, but I promise I'm a puppy & am thus harmless.
I'm a recovering gamer; I've yet to find that good -healthy- balance between life & the virtual alternative~ I grew up on the vintage consoles, & when I got a PC that could run emulators, I never went back, except for the occasional Super Smash Bros madness at various friends' houses.
I've dabbled in Astrology, Tarot reading, & Palmistry. I also (inconsistently) practice Juggling, Contact Juggling, Sword Swallowing as well as Fire Eating on the rare occasion I can legally do so. I'm also curious in trying out Escape Artistry, Slight of Hand, & other skills related to sideshow.
As far as instruments are concerned, I can play some simple tunes on the Concertina which is like a little box- accordion.
I enjoy being physical & I prefer Sports like Hiking, Swimming, Kayaking, Cross Country, Archery & Fencing. I'm good w/ team sports too, though, but I can't say I'm a fan of watching.. at all. I might also like Surfing & other board & skating sports too, though I never got my balance down perfectly, I still fall at least once every time I go Ice Skating. Broom Ball however x_x
I'd also like to try Parkour w/ someone, maybe get back into a regular workout routine that concludes w/ a nice swim as a cool down.
I like talking Science, History & Astronomy, so anything relating to those subjects interest me, same as Technology & its advancements. Yes, I'm a nerd & yes I love reading/learning about this stuff. People in general are fascinating too, though specifically, I'm obsessed w/ the continued progress of the Human Race, & how far it's come -I'm both concerned & excited for these next 150 years.
Depending on the company, I'm either laughing to myself, or I am joined by others in my enjoyment of life. According to the theory of the Four Temperaments, I'm a primary Sanguine secondary Phlegmatic. Personality Type Theory, which some may be more familiar w/ places me pretty solidly in INFP territory. I just wanted to include that~
Generally I'm pretty cool-headed, relaxed & easy going... What more can I say; the Hippy life agrees w/ me ;)
I'm just as comfortable in a hidden coffee shoppe as I am at a music festival (unless the music sucks), though as far as initiating conversation goes, I don't often make the first move. I can be talkative, but by no means can I carry a conversation by myself. I mumble, I stutter, but not to the point it's super noticeable. Just so long as you're not too bothered w/ repeating yourself, I promise not to be bothered w/ repeating myself when I run my words together in wondrous Carrollian style.
As a human being, I do what I can, and make the most out of any situation, good or bad. Not that I'm not prone to have negative traits, as all humans are, being that we're by nature imperfect creatures.
The concept of equality is important to me. I strongly resent any sort of social stigma that would differentiate between peoples of different strengths, and classify one as being "better" than another by some make-believe hierarchy. I don't care for those who are particularly judgmental or are stuck in an "all or none" opinion. In this world, there are no absolutes; anything resembling such things of definition are further obscured by variables both within & outside of our senses. So please check your predispositions at the door, it's not a bad thing to allow yourself to be surprised.
