My self-summary
I'm a very social person and seldom will go even a few days without getting out for some fun with people. I love to get outside for hiking, biking, sometimes running, and whatever else.
In the last couple years I have charged full steam ahead with many of the things on my bucket list such as sky diving, taking another cross country road trip, etc. I love to travel and would love it if I can manage to move around internationally. I have already been fortunate enough to see most of Europe, South America, and the Middle East.
Right now I'm looking primarily for friends but life has a tendency of working out in ways you don't intend it to so I'm always eager to meet new people.
When I'm at home I love to cook, watch movies, play a little bit of video games, but I'm a nut for board games. There's a lot more to it but I either need to leave it at that or practically write a book so I will save any more for messages or meetings.
So I've realized recently I have a special attraction to people that are very intellectual and also very sexual. I think those are the two most interesting aspects to growing up but I'm still a huge kid at heart that would probably just laugh hysterically if you surprised me with a nerf gun ambush.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm focusing on school now that I am returning to the civilian life. I spent 5 years in the Navy and now am trying to reap the rewards of several tough years of service. I have in large part started a new social network and constantly find myself in the presence of increasingly admirable people.
My most recent accomplishment is acceptance into nursing school which I know will be challenging and rewarding. I have worked very hard for this and I assume I will work a lot harder yet.
Outside of those two things I try to avoid having much idle time. I am and always will be a highly active person. (active being subjective because I find hobbies such as writing or crafts which may not be inherently active still are not just killing time.)
I have recently discovered the zen rewards of balance that gardening affords. I have everything from succulents and cacti to fruits and vegetables and flowering plants and thoroughly enjoy being able to watch the fruits of my cultivation efforts.
This year I am taking myself back into the realm of practicing spirituality for the first time since walking away from Christianity, and I'm finding no small amount of satisfaction in celebrating the Pagan calendar this year. It has been enlightening and reminded me that your spirit needs to be exercised just as your body does.
I’m really good at
Getting creative people together and bringing out the better side of my friends. I may not have innate artistic talent or inspiration but the friends I have say I tend to break their writer's block or whatever the equivalent would be for photographers, musician, and artists.
I'm an expert driver.
Staying positive. Throughout some very challenging points in life this has kept me from just sabotaging myself, which at those times seemed preferable and more natural but in hindsight am very glad I avoided such wreckless actions. I know that the more you look at the potential for improving your situation the more opportunities you have to actually do so.
And i'm a champ when it comes to foosball!
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. I have eyes that change between amber and emerald depending on my mood and a few other factors.

I have really weird hiccups, sneezes, and little tweaks
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite book? Actually you know what the worst part of all is I NEVER LEARNED TO READ!! No but seriously I love lullaby, brave new world, animal farm, ender's game and a few more that aren't coming to mind. I'm a big fan of Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, Ayn Rand, Ray Bradbury, George Orwell, all the authors of this century that I would say have really challenged society's structure and values.

movies this is a very limited list but long enough to grasp the wide variety i enjoy.
Star wars, in fact I would almost go so far as to say that if your not a star wars fan don't write me. Maybe. But I also love a lot of other types of movies from meet joe black to planes, trains, and automobiles, to Coffy, to Se7en and a beautiful mind and shawshank redemption. the land before time, Aladin, rushmore, sin city, 80's action movies, Amelie, Mary and Max, Juno, the big lebowski, natural born killers, true romance, v for vendetta, planet terror, SLC Punk, Peter No Tail, (in fact I might almost marry someone on the spot if they could readily quote that movie)

Shows Cowboy Bebop!*** Archer, Arrested Development, Dexter, the Office, Doug, the Adventures of Pete and Pete

With music I enjoy a little bit of most genres except country. As with star wars country is almost a deal breaker. AFI gaslight anthem radiohead katy perry lady gaga del tha funkee homosapien, the beatles, a perfect circle, portishead, queen, placebo, florence and the machine, the gorillaz, neutral milk hotel, the sounds, the yeah yeah yeahs, bob dylan, bob marley, sara bareilles, regina spektor, brand new, modest mouse, the white stripes and paul simon

Food I'm a huge fat kid. I temper it so that I don't let it get to my health but I have that kind of approach that if you can't enjoy your food and all your sort of missing out on life. I am not a real fantastic cook but i've lived on my own long enough to know how to make at least a weeks worth of food without having to repeat a meal or be eating out of the microwave. I was raised on italian and mexican food mixed with american classics like burgers, pot pie and fried chicken but have grown a taste bud for foods of almost all cultures. Middle Eastern/ Turkish food, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, British, German. Sopapillas remain one of my favorite treats, partly because so few places serve them.
The six things I could never do without
An addiction- but let me qualify that I always want to really want something whether it's something small and insignificant like a soda or red bull or an addiction to my significant other. It's a big part of my drive, my ambition to reach my goals or get things done. I.e. i'm going to work out so that I can reward myself with a pepsi. I love hanging out with this friend I'm going to do something awesome for them or do something impressive so they continue to find our friendship to be unique and valuable.
Faithfulness - whether that be from my lover, a pet, family, good friends, someone who I know can be a source of comfort in tough times
A Muse - I believe your spirit withers when not fed and for me that is someone or something inspiring my creativity. We were born with a mind that senses a more complex palate of emotions then possibly any other living thing and I try to exercise that capability of being in awe
A Goal - something that can drive me to accomplish new things and be focused on the end game without losing track of where I am and the current situation.
Variety - I always will want to try something new, whether that's a food, drink, activity, job, I want to be able to look back on my life and identify at least a few significant things that were unique in my life each year.
I know this is only 5 but I can't think of a sixth at the moment and given how important to me the other things are I don't want to diminuitize that by just putting something silly like water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future, what I want to have done in 5 years what I can do now to make that a reality. I think about what school I want to go to, what I will do if I get rejected from the school I want, what kind of career I want, things that are important to me in a girl, in friends, what I will one day want for my family, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
I have a few go to kinds of ideas of fun, bonfire, bowling, movie, gaming with some friends, drinks with friends, in or out at a bar, not a club though, alcohol tends to convince me I have rhythm that simply isn't there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I shave my legs and sometimes other parts

I'm a switch
