I am here because I want to find a partner–someone who loves adventure and can push me out of my comfort zone, someone who is comfortable living an independent life but allowing me in and who is comfortable with me having my own life, but letting them in. Geography is not an issue. If this sounds like you, send me a message. If not, best of luck in your search!
When people get to know me I think they are surprised by the way my mind works–I see complexity in everything. The world is so interesting and full of nuances. I am looking for someone who sees the world in various shades.
Food: I am a vegetarian. You can eat what you want.
Books and Movies: I love to read. My top three books (which have all held positions on the favorite list for years) are The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, Catch 22 by Joseph Heller, and Corelli's Mandolin by Louis de Bernières. I like movies and in the past I have been a voracious documentary watcher. Lately I usually choose light and airy–the world is too full of serious things, I need laughs.
Music. I listen to a lot of indy, acoustic-style stuff. But that's a huge generalization. I like so many different artists and genres. Ask me about it!
Podcasts: I believe that I have listened to every episode of This American Life and Radiolab at least once. I also love Planet Money, Snap Judgement, Death, Sex, and Money, and The Longest Shortest Time (please come back!) Some might call is obsessed, I prefer dedicated.
My (3) camera is practically an extension of my arm.
I have a love/hate relationship with my (4) car. I can't function without it in the Midwest, but I would love to be in a place where I wouldn't need it.
The (5) sun. Besides the obvious fact that we would all cease to exist without it, I am an outdoor girl through and through. I just got back from my annual beach trip with my family and my spirit feels renewed. But beach, woods, mountains, prairie-the fresh air has the same effect on me anywhere.
