My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Grew up in Boise. I love exploring the outdoors. Into human powered adventures, art, nature, books, friendships, and making the world a better place. Socially liberal, green. Myers-Briggs says I am an INTP. I'd usually rather spend my time with a few good friends than with a big crowd of acquaintances. I like a quiet evening at home once in awhile, but I also love to travel, and getting outside with some friends in a beautiful place is pretty much what I live for. I enjoy checking out art museums and galleries, hearing visiting authors speak, listening to science and public policy lectures. I dig photography and love to climb, run, bike, ski, hike, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going back to school to finish a second bachelors, biology this time, and either getting into a PA or PT program or getting a teaching certificate. I have been injured a bit this year, but now that my hip is on the mend I'd like to run some more mountain ultramarathons. Have also been getting out climbing a little more than in the past thanks to some great friends, old and new.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Appreciating culture. Sitting in the sunshine watching the natural world unfold. Waiting for the perfect light. Reading. Pushing myself physically and mentally. Exploring my limits. I pick most things up quickly, provided I am sufficiently interested.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often grow a beard in the winter. Sometimes it gets crazy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Some favorite authors are Edward Abbey, Jim Harrison, Barry Lopez, Sherman Alexie, but thats just a drop in the bucket and honestly it is hard to keep track. I like serious films, dark or quirky comedies (Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson), foreign films (especially French and Scandinavian), anything with Daniel Day-Lewis, Jake or Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Baz Luhrmann flicks. I like to watch old episodes of Northern Exposure. Musically speaking, lyrics are important to me. I think Josh Ritter is an amazing songwriter. I grew up listening to U2, Led Zeppelin, The Dead, Pink Floyd, and The Doors, so those guys have a place in my heart. These days I dig a lot of indie stuff, folk, bluegrass, whatever. Alt-J, Billy Bragg, The Frames, The Be Good Tanyas, Crooked Still, The Wailin' Jennys, Dandy Warhols, Cloud Cult, Kris Delmhorst. My musical tastes are all over the place though. Not into Christian music, or "I hate women" rap. What to say about food? In the past, if left to my own devices food is fuel. Have been cooking a bit more, or at least throwing together some yummy veggies. I can't do the ramen and breakfast cereal thing, like I could when I was 25. If I am going out or feeling culinary, I like Indian and Thai food, curries, lots of veggies, sushi, Mexican and South American food. I was an easy going vegetarian for quite awhile and still don't eat much meat. But if I know where it comes from, and it is ethical and sustainable, I've got no problems with meat. Or if I'm just really, really hungry.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
#1 Frequent doses of nature. Seriously, I go a little crazy if I'm deprived of it. I love to run mountain trails, scramble up peaks, watch the moonrise, chase animals, watch birds, and lie in the dirt staring at the clouds.
#2 Water. A regular dunk in a mountain lake, or a hotspring (fuck yeah!), or a river. I think it is the dry climate of Boise, but I crave being near water, drinking water, swimming, paddling and splashing in water.
#3 Deep and abiding friendships.
#4 Libraries. They're little bastions of socialism. Resources for those that need 'em.
#5 My kids. One is an academic genius with a huge amount of sensitivity, and deep need for fairness, the other one is an empathetic nature loving artist. They're both good, good (miniature) people. And wicked fun. They're also a pain in the ass, and the truth is I CAN do without them for reasonable periods of time. But if they were ever really and truly out of my life, I'd miss 'em like crazy.
#6 I'm stopping at five, 'cuz I like to live free.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I grew up Mormon (I know!), so when I was a kid I spent a lot of time thinking about the nature of God. The infinite. Now I think about the future of the planet. The futures of my son and daughter. I try not to live too much inside my own head. I can get lost in there without even trying.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hitting the trails with some friends for a bike ride. Maybe beers after. Putting my kids to bed. Watching the sky, reading a book. If I'm lucky, I'm packing the car and lighting out, headed for the hills.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Wow. Really? On the internet to complete strangers? I sniff my deodorant before putting it on. Like maybe it might have gone bad since I put it on the day before. I dunno why. I'm odd. If you want the real goods, ask me in person sometime.
