I'm usually pretty reserved and quiet up until that time I decide to say something which makes those around me go "...woah that was intense...".
I'm a Designer at a startup. I really love my job and am grateful for it.
I do not own a TV.
I really like going to yoga but have not been nurturing that habit lately - gotta return...
I just bought a drum set - so, that happened.
I love cardamom pods and the smell of old LPs and train whistles. And buoy (navigation aid) horns.
KCRW fan. Not a burning man fan (although I've been in '94, '95 and '96) It's great if you like Burning Man but it's a bit of a story why I don't go and I'm happy to share it.
I like randomly starting chat sessions with OKC-ers... you have been warned.
I find this funny:
I'm an INFP on the Meyers Briggs, and a cancer-monkey if you care about Chinese astrology.
I volunteer at SFJAZZ to keep the faith ;) although I'm not religious in any traditional way.
I'm fascinated by bathymetric maps and underwater topography - like what the bottom of the east river in NYC is like.
I buy whole bean coffee and grind it and love a cafe near my house, Flywheel Coffee Roasters and I'm often there working.
I'm articulate and painfully self-aware. I like going sailing. My parents are still together. I am the oldest of 3.
I don't have any tattoos. sorry.
I'm a great cook but rarely follow a recipe. Not a big manual reader either, just lemmie at it and Ill figure it out.
I'm basically trying to make myself a better person all the time and this has it's highs and lows. And I don't like vegan ice cream at all.
Let's remember none of us are perfect. We're works in progress, and this is an inaccurate and often funny process.
I'm sure we all try to polish up some image of ourselves to appear as some ideal but usually after some time of getting to know someone you discover a slightly different reality... and while we get there it's just a process of discovery we need to be devoted to maintaining in an openminded and hopefully loving and humorous way.
I guess I'm just looking to chat a little bit, and maybe make a few friends here, and hope that the door opens for more for me at some point off in the future. I'll write more here as I figure out what I want to say.
I'm also seeing there is a difference between meeting someone on this site, for example, and genuinely "attracting" the right partner into your life. The former can be self-centered and self-serving, the latter requires a different kind of mindset - I'm trying to act to draw the right partner to me, rather than merely acquiring one on a site like this. Wish me luck :)
