***I don't wear make-up, high heels or dresses. I don't go clubbing or partying. I like snakes, bugs & dirt. If any of this is a significant issue for you, please make use of the "back" button & move on to the next profile.***
We now return to the regular scheduled profile:
*looks around* So this is the box I get to put my self in? I'm not a contortionist...
Not only do we instinctively hide the most meaningful parts of ourselves from others, but the most meaningful things that make up our selves cannot be understood through words alone. It's all about perspectives, so why don't you tell me about myself? No? Mmk then, here it goes (in no particular order)...
I enjoy basically any craftwork/creative endeavours. I spend the majority of any free time I can get reading, creating, &/or out in nature. I draw, paint & write poetry to prevent my brain from exploding & to remind me of my self.
I can appreciate simplicity, but I generally prefer the complex, complicated & interconnected. I search for intensity & have an insatiable curiosity.
I enjoy manipulating metaphors. I contradict myself A LOT but I can usually come up with a logical explanation that I can at least convince myself with. I'm an empathetic misanthrope...how's that for contradiction? (Ask me & I'll explain)
I sing when I'm certain no one is listening. I don't dance. I will hug a random person if I think they could use one...& yes, trees count as people. I will also randomly give back massages to people if I think they could use one...in this case, trees don't count.
I'm an IN(T/F)J. I spend a lot of time thinking about how I feel & about how I think. Sometimes I get frustrated when people misunderstand me, but I can also understand why they do because I can't figure myself out half the time either.
In most situations I usually appear to be quiet & shy, but I also have a tendency to be random, especially under the influence of coffeine, more so under the influence of sleep deprivation (which occurs often). Yes, COFFEINE...no, I didn't spell it wrong. I hate sleeping. I love coffee. Think what you want, they are completely unrelated...mostly...unrelated I tell you! I love the smell of coffee at night & the smooth taste of it anytime. I have a love/hate relationship with sleep, because while I think there are better things to do than act comatose for 8 hours, dreaming can be good.
Apparently I step outside of my comfortable shell of introversion if I feel passionately about something. I guess my intense need to fight against what I feel is wrong overrides my intense desire to avoid the rabble.
I'm frequently found star-gazing/sky-watching & I seek solitude, which is why I love the night. Being awake, outside, at night refreshes & revitalizes me. I'm captivated by rain & I long for a good storm. Rain at midnight seems to be most brilliant than at any other time. I don't think I'll ever be able to live anywhere not close to some sort of large body of water, unless I'm surrounded by forests. Then again, there's still beauty in deserts. I think though, part of it is because I find myself desperate for fresh air when I spend too much time in the city.
I came here for the tests, found the (original) matching system fascinating & stayed for the interesting conversations. I've been here on and off long enough to have given up on any hope that something grand will come of this, but I've crossed paths with enough interesting people from here to stick around for awhile.
If you hate tree-hugging dirt worshippers (ie. ecogeeks, otherwise known as environmentalists) then move along, quickly. Also, if you resemble anything like the polar opposite of such a person, move along much more quickly & take your Hummer with you. Don't mistake me for a dirty Liberal enviro nut; I don't think the planet needs saving, I just think Earth needs us to stop messing with it. We need to get over our delusions of grandeur that we're the greatest beings on this planet and could possibly know how to "save" it.
I might as well get this out in the open right away. I'm a "No, Rarely, Never" (smoking, drinking, drugs) kind of person & if I do feel like interacting with people, it's generally of the same bunch.
I suppose I should mention some of the types I usually don't get along with for extensive periods of time, (though I can be friendly with most): capitalists, extreme right wingers (& the extreme left wingers), the closed-minded, the immature (not child-like, that's okay, childish is not), those wrapped up in the media, fashion & fads, people who dislike learning & those with no manner of respect (for other people or the rest of the living world).
