Throughout my teen and now adult years, I've consistently found that I am "different". Not different in a superior way or a negative way, but just different than the many people I've met. Probably because I don't give a shit about a lot of things that people give a shit about and I tend to focus on things that other people think are unimportant (which in some cases, that might be true). For example, material things are in some cases necessary but hold little value to me. Unless it is a piece of art or something that holds sentimental value, it just doesn't excite me. I've never bought something because of the brand name or the way it would make me look to the public eye. I care dearly about listening to people and having people listen to me. Have you ever thought about how often you find someone who will listen through a whole story of yours without interrupting or secretly thinking of what they're going to say next? We're all guilty of it, but the truth is, most people are waiting for the person to stop talking so they can go. I'm a firm believer that we should listen twice as much as we talk and I am immediately drawn to people who seem to un/knowingly follow this idea.
I am goofy and extremely clumsy. The clumsiness is actually something I try to improve on as I get older but it's just not going anywhere. I don't buy white shirts because I spill. I try to use plastic things over glass because I break. I love sarcasm and dry humor. For instance, I find Tommy Boy, Tosh, Office Space, and the movie Waiting hilarious. I really like people who are forward and say what is on their mind, even at the expense of others. Confidence is hard to find, and even if I don't agree with someone on something, I've always admired people who stand by what they believe in. Also, I don't really care if no one on earth would want to be your friend. If you are a close friend of mine, I will always stand by you. I am incredibly loyal in both friendships and relationships.
When I think of fun times, I imagine...hiking in the mountains, camping & drinking whiskey by a fire so all my clothes smell like smoke for the remainder of the trip, tubing down the American River and watching drunk people fight on that island, backpacking with a pack that is actually 1/3 of my weight, leafing down blue diamonds in Tahoe while pretending I am actually good at snowboarding, road trips either alone or with good friends, kissing with meaning, going to Skyzone in Rocklin and bouncing my worries away, eating sushi whenever possible, running until the endorphins release, and visiting a psychic every once in a blue moon to sneak a peak at what the past, present, or future holds.
As I am newer to California and stay super busy with work during the week, I joined this website to make friends, whether that be girls or guys. Although many people use this website for dating, I am one of the few who don't so please don't be offended if I don't respond to your holla atcha boy messages! Just looking for cool people to hang out with. And if you're into extreme things (i.e. bungee jumping, sky diving, white water rafting) then I would love for you to let loose with me on the weekends with a healthy dose of adrenaline.
If you have taken the time to read this, and enjoyed it, then don't be shy. I am very inviting but hard to truly get to know. Did that make sense? I know. I don't get it either.
P.S. None of my pictures are photoshopped, some are just brighter than others due to the flash. If girls spent half as much time they spend on photoshopping their pictures on small acts of kindness, this world would be a better place.
