My self-summary
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 adventure."

~Edward Abbey.

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 on an organic farm and am passionate about 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 states, it's parks and towns and people, while documenting my adventures.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, laughing, making margaritas, goofing off, telling stories animatedly, writing, drawing, eating, drinking, procrastinating, growing stuff, 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!
My charming demeanor, thick curly hair, fantastic sense of humor, and rugged good looks. People consistently guess me to be 28. Good living and a youthful perspective.....And modesty, of course, is my best quality. ;)
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 in.

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.
Intelligent hip-hop.
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.
How hipsters steal everything cool and make it hipster; Zombies, flannel shirts, whiskey, bicycles, PBR, beards, bacon...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 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. You don't take duck face selfies in front of the mirror or in the car and you aren't a republican or a fundamentalist Christian. If you like to cozy up by a woodstove while the weather is cold.
