I have started school again on a long road to my goal of being an experimental archaeologist.
I have a tendency to sequester myself in my room if I have no reason not to. Luckily, since moving back to Charlotte last year I have made a great number of friends that have done a great job pulling me out of the house. I really enjoy going places if I have a friend or loved one that I want to go out with. Otherwise, I'm content to stay in.
I am typically over-dressed for any occasion. I just enjoy wearing sport coats. I would rather wear a jacket and look good than stay cool in the summer, but I realize that is idiotic so I have worked hard more recently to only wear one when I absolutely have to (read: really really want to).
I have recently gone from seeing OkCupid as an interesting social experiment to a fun way to meet people. I have found it to be much less depressing and quite a bit more entertaining than any of the other internet-based dating options out there.
I am an agnostic atheist, and am not really interested in a romantic relationship with someone who is religious in any serious way. I value reason above faith in all things.
I am unlikely to assume society has anything right automatically and try to create my own value system according to my experience and observations. As a result, I question with great vehemence the idea that love always equals monogamy. While I have no direct experience with polyamory, I consider it a possibility in my life (although I am mildly annoyed by the term, since it mixes Latin and Greek roots. Come on, pick polyphilia or multiamory!)
I like Italian wines (especially from Abruzzo) and Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, NZ. Absinthe is also the shit.
