I'm a bit of a bookworm, but I'm also very much the adventurous type. To me, the books are only the first step, a teaser to a new adventure. I LOVE to wander. When I have nothing planned I'll hop on my bike and go for a ride around LA with my camera stuffed in my bag. Every now and then I'll also feel the urge to take off and vanish into the wilderness for a couple of days with just my tent and sleeping bag to immerse myself in nature. (Actually, I'm overdue for one of those.)
On Sundays (and on random nights I'm feeling reeeaaally lazy; we all have them) you'll most likely find me on a couch somewhere, reading an entire book in one sitting or marathoning a nerdy TV show.
Some of the things I like:
-- Nerdfighteria and YouTube in general
-- Science and technology
-- Traveling and travel hacking
-- Theme parks
-- Nature and camping
-- Science fiction/fantasy
I'm always in search of new experiences, and also someone to share those new experiences with. Which is why I'm here. :)
I want to get really good at....
* Photography. I bought this camera, I'm gonna use it, dammit
* Writing. I really wish I had the time to do NaNoWriMo again.
* Traveling, not just to far off places, but also to nearby places I've never been to. I've got 200,000 frequent flyer miles and counting! See also: Photography, because traveling is the main reason I got into photography to begin with.
Favorite books: Matilda (ages 9-12), Ender's Game (ages 12-15), Dune (ages 15-18), and the A Song of Ice and Fire series (ages 18+). Also, if a movie adaptation of a book makes it onto my list of favorite movies, it's likely also a favorite book because I try to read the books before the movies. That includes Jurassic Park, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Godfather, etc. A very recent favorite is The Martian, by Andy Weir, one of the funniest books I've ever read, even including the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Recent favorite movies: Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Iron Man, Avengers, Star Trek (2009), among others. Disney movies deserve their own category. I specify RECENT movies because holy *bleep* this list would be long if I didn't.
My favorite songs are the ones that fit whatever situation I'm currently in (e.g. beach songs while at the beach, road trip songs while on the road, etc.). Basically I like having a soundtrack to my life. That said, I am slightly obsessed with musicals, especially Les Miserables and Disney.
I can eat almost anything, but Japanese food (sushi + ramen) and Mediterranean food (shawerma) are my current favorites.
- My Sony A7 and RX100m2 cameras
- My laptop (w/ associated accessories)
- My smartphone (aka my portable link to Wikipedia, aka the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
- My personal adventure kit (i.e. backpack with spare clothes, Nalgene bottle, toiletries, etc., for those unexpected trips)
- My bike
- Something to read
Six things that I don't own that I could never do without
- The great outdoors
- Bookstores (and libraries)
- Padded floors (or better yet, bouncy floors)
- Air travel
- Outer space
Seriously, though, I think about a lot. Most of my web time is spent link-surfing history and science pages on Wikipedia or watching science YouTube videos. (I like science.)
Or, when I'm feeling particularly lazy, I watch lots of clever little feel-good YouTube videos like this one.
Say it with me: Awww!
It doesn't matter if the things you love are different from the things that I love, it's the passion that I'm attracted to. I'm looking for someone to experience new things with: a best friend, compatriot, and a partner-in-crime. A Hermione to my Harry, an Amy Pond to my Rory Williams, a Clara Oswald to my Danny Pink, a Katara to my Aang.
Ultimately, my criteria for a good match boils down to three things:
- Be passionate
- Be curious
- Be adventurous
DFTBA! (Don't forget to be awesome!)
Bonus points if you have a Disneyland annual pass, or are willing to go at least twice a year
