I'm in broke student mode right now,
which is still new to me.
Reminding me of being a kid again.
I was a young starving artist long ago.

I lived in the neighborhood of Deep Ellum for close to 15 years of my life.
Even though I'm not there right now, it's still my neighborhood.
It's been a part of my life since I was twelve years old.
I still volunteer a lot of my time towards building the community in that neighborhood.

I'd like more time to play.
I'd like to have a reason to have more time to play.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books--I love books.
I have over 500 of them. Mostly non-fiction.
I do enjoy some fiction, but mostly classic literature.

Movies: small art films, old horror films, Italian horror. I like post-apocalyptic films, where the world ends. I also enjoy films that bring me in touch with my emotions and move me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Honest Expression
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking--period. Like, I said sociology, conflict and peace studies are passions of mine, but there are many things I love to think about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really busy, but I can feel lonely at times. Generally I experience my life as full in many ways. I have much to do, and I have many friends and communities from which I receive connection and support. That being said, I'm a little sad that I don't have the kind of intimate relationship I had hoped for at this point in my life.

One more thing...

I've struggled with eating and my weight all my life. I feel blessed to truly enjoy healthy/whole food. However, choosing when to eat and how much to eat has never been easy for me, because I frequently and inexplicably feel hungry. Even though I don't experience a sense of ease with these decisions, for the majority of my life I have been--and presently am--a very fit person that maintains a healthy weight. And while I sympathize with others who struggle in this area, I would feel really hesitant in considering a person who has a similar struggle with food as a lifelong partner. I have successfully maintained a healthy weight most of my life and I am very confident in my ability to do so, but I would be worried about the energy I would have to support a partner with that particular struggle in such an intimate relationship.

要是你看得懂中文, 就给我留言!

I'd like to add that while I genuinely appreciate it when someone shows an interest in me, if I don't have a sense of connection with you based on what I see in your profile, I generally will not respond to a message sent. This approach helps to add to the simplicity in my life and I'm also guessing this is what most people on this site expect. In addition, I don't know how to write the generic "thanks, but no thanks" in a way that I experience as authentic.
