I'm weeks away from being done with school for a while and should actually have time to cultivate a social life again.
I'm not looking for a soul mate, in fact I think that's kind of a silly idea. I'm by no means a player and have no game. Looking to make some real connections with interesting people. I consider myself a feminist, and sex positive. I try my damndest to not judge and honestly if you're into something weird I'll probably be at least a little curious. I'm always down for new experiences.
I love the outdoors. Hiking, camping, climbing (despite having no talent for it) backpacking. I've dabbled in mountaineering. Any excuse to sleep in the trees and I'm there.
I used to be really rather materialistic but I've thankfully outgrown that phase of my life and have sold off most of the stuff I'd acquired. If you put a premium on the ownership of things we probably won't see eye to eye on much. I sold my fancy car and now I'm a bike commuter year round. A choice that works for me but wouldn't for everyone, so don't worry, I won't flip you shit for driving.
An important fact about me is that I am no good at describing myself in short essay format, but I'll try to give you some idea of what I'm all about.
I thirst for knowledge. I find the question "why would you want to know that?" offensive. I hold the opinion that there is value in learning anything simply for the sake of expanding on one's knowledge, without any hope of application.
Having an intellectual conversation with someone that shares my views, I find enjoyable. Having an intellectual debate with someone who doesn't can really make my day, especially if they prove me wrong.
Many social labels bother me. They attempt to categorize people into nice little boxes that can be assessed at a glance. People are complex, too complex for nice little boxes.
That being said, here are some of my labels: secular humanist, vegetarian, smart ass.
^this is all old news.
I'm still working and schooling, but the aim has shifted a bit. I'm no longer pursuing a degree in engineering. I'm about to wrap up my AA and then the plan is to do something environmental. Still hammering out the details.
Shit has been pretty crazy in my life these last few months. I'm really not sure where I'll end up but it will certainly not be where I was. I moved from Portland back to Vancouver, parted ways with many of my worldly possessions, and am making a transition from driving to cycling exclusively. This has always been the plan, but the speed at which things have happened and the catalysts that have started these changes have made it challenging. As of right now though, things are looking pretty good for the first time in a while.
I just started watching Twin Peaks, I'm really disappointed in my friends for letting me go this long without seeing it.
Arrested development, Modern Family, New Girl, The League, Archer, Venture Brothers, etc..
Preferably a piano
An Ipod full of lectures
Science fiction of all mediums
