Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Haven't been taking this very seriously in a while. Much of the
info on here is old but for some reason I feel like it's cheating
to delete it.
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
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
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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
**Currently, I'm working full-time and going to school. In school
I'm focusing on engineering with the intention to eventually work
for a group like engineers without borders to provide humanitarian
assistance around the globe.**
^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
