Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant
enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save
the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and
ENFP for those interested in all that Meyers Briggs business.
I moved up here to study writing and visual arts at Evergreen from
a tiny town in Northern California, the denizens of which are a mix
of old hippies, loggers, and ranchers who's offspring come together
and form a sort of hybrid, affectionately known as "rippies,"
redneck hippies, posessing the best qualities of both. Add some
sophistication and a taste for laughter, travel, adventure, and the
fine things in life and you have me. I fell in love with the
stunning natural beauty of this area, the laid back lifestyle,
learned to appreciate the rain, and found my home in the Pacific
Northwest. I was raised off the grid on an organic farm and am
passionate about healthy community, healthy food, proper nutrition,
and sustainable food systems. Monsanto Corporation is the very
embodiment of evil and is working toward a real life zombie
apocalypse. I love the local food systems Olympia has to offer and
I must say that I'm a pretty good cook, resourceful and creative in
the kitchen and can usually whip up something tasty and healthy
with whatever I happen to have on hand. I think sharing a good,
hearty belly laugh or a fit of uncontrollable giggles with close
friends is one of the greatest feelings in the world. That, and
experiencing a new and amazing place for the first time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In the last couple years, I have finally been able to reach a sort
of zen place in life in which I am living for the present and not
some hypothetical future, doing things that I want to do and living
in the moment, just enjoying. Aside from that I'm bartending part
time, working on setting up a small business venture, and writing
and drawing when I'm able. Feeling the travel bug nibbling at me
pretty insistently. I think the next place I want to visit
internationally is Budapest, Hungary. Also, a longstanding dream of
mine is to pack my dogs, camping gear, and laptop into my car and
just go. Driving around exploring the Country, it's parks, towns,
roads, cities, dives, people, and food while documenting my
adventures along the way. Might make a pretty epic book.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, laughing, making margaritas and bloody marys, goofing off,
telling stories animatedly, writing, drawing, eating, drinking,
procrastinating, growing stuff, accidentally shrinking my favorite
wool beanies in the drier, not being a douche who takes pictures of
myself in the mirror with my shirt lifted. A few other things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Thick curly locks, charming demeanor, fantastic sense of humor,
rugged good looks, the fact I appear younger than I am which I
belive is born of good living and a young soul, and modesty of
course. I do smile often and have the smile lines to prove it but
apparently not so much in photos.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Fantasy, historical fiction, biographies and
autobiographies, humor, investigative journalism. A few of my most
recent favorites have been The Passage, The Twelve, and Shantaram.
I've recently been reading a lot of Christopher Moore's books.
Lot's of fun.
Movies: Okay, my movie tastes are much too varied to narrow down
but I've recently been on a documentary kick.
Television: Don't have it but I Netflix series that I like and
watch sports at the bar. Anthony Bourdaine is my hero and The Wire
was the best show anyone has created. Having read the books, I
think HBO is doing a fantastic job with A Game Of Thrones. I just
cracked out to Season two of The Walking Dead until like 3:00 a.m.
Way better than season one. That zombie drama really sucks you
Music: Real country, not the horrible pop crap; Waylon, Cash,
Willie, Johnny Paycheck, Merle Haggard, George Jones, David Allan
Coe, Hank Williams Sr., Hank lll.
"On the highway to nowhere that runs through my mind A yellow line
stretches out into the night Broken in places, it's my guiding
light So I'm writing that freedom a line at a time"
Waylon Jennings speaks to my very soul.
Reggae; conscious roots and dancehall.
Bluegrass, folk, punk, metal, some dubstep, old hippie rock.
Food: I usually eat a simple diet of whole grains, meat, and
veggies crafted in delicious ways at home but one of my favorite
things is to go out to a good restaurant. Sushi and pretty much any
Asian cuisine, except Chinese (that shit is gross and greasy) tops
my list of cultural cuisine, along with Mediterranean. Also love
some good, quality Mexican food. La Tarasca in Centralia is bomb.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, my pups, nature, food, books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If you encounter a vegan who does crossfit, which one will they
stop talking about first?
How hipsters steal everything good and make it hipster. Flannel,
whiskey, bicycles, kale, beards, bacon, brunch...etc. How fucked up
the American food industry and food systems are and how the general
population are happily scarfing down the poisons provided to them
and perpetuating their own demise.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No night is typical. Could be at a concert, camping, enjoying
dinner and drinks with friends, out dancing, lounging in a dive
bar, soaking in my hot tub with a bottle of red wine, in bed
reading, or curled up on my couch with my pup, watching a movie or
cracking out on some video games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I become so absorbed in a book that I'll take it into the
shower with me. I used to have a crush on the mouse chick from
Rescue Rangers when I was a kid. Really, I'm not a very private
person, I'll tell most anyone pretty much anything.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a passion for humor, fun, food, music, and adventure and
you aren't a republican or a fundamentalist Christian. If you like
to cozy up watching movies by a woodstove on a cold rainy winter
I think it's funny that dudes on here get all butt hurt when women
don't return their messages. It's like, man, how do you handle
rejection in real life? So you can at least rest assured that if I
message you and you're not feeling it (for whatever unfathomable
reason) I'm going to just leave it at that and not accuse you of
being a "stuck up bitch" or anything of that nature. (Tha's not to
say I'm encouraging anyone to not reply to my messages or anything.
😜 I don't send them desperately or compulsively so if I do it's
because I'm genuinely intrigued.)
