I've fiddled with descriptions too often to describe myself in "the best way". It's aggravating considering how complex people can be. I'd rather talk with people so we can both get to know each other without quick judgements.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently changing careers to become a medical lab technician, and just finished my MLT certification.
I’m really good at
I have many a story to tell, whether my own or another's, and I delight in getting people to laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I used to read a lot more than I do today, enjoying authors of wild stories like Small Gods (Pratchett), Foundation (Asimov), and Cold Fire (Koontz). I love it when a character's worldview is shattered and he/she matures and grows into a better person as a result.
As for movies, I like light-hearted romps or more cerebral dramas. Pirates of Penzance on one hand, Snow Falling on Cedars on the other. And for variety I often enjoy a bit of horror like John Carpenter's The Thing.
I love fresh fruit, Indian food, and egg-tempeh-sheep's cheese sandwiches
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order,
Hugs, smiles and laughter
Learning new things
Gathering wild food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People - I often think about how cultures and traditions came to be, their impact on society, where they are headed, etc.
Movies/Stories - got a real soft spot for sci-fi, magic, and stories that mix the two.
On a typical Friday night I am
Yes. On a typical Friday night I am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That depends on how intimate our conversations have gotten. For a stranger I can admit that I tend to be more forthcoming in conversations than I should be.
You should message me if
