My self-summary
Uh-Oh!!...I sold my house in Kansas, quit my job, shoved everything in a pod and drove to Oregon! I do have a job here, since that's important to everyone and their moms. I am wanting to explore the area - hiking, biking, racquetball, swimming, all that and more. I really want to adventure up and down highway 58 and various coastal areas along the 101. Bodies of water in general are on the list too. Open to suggestions also.

Facetious. Introvert. Snarky. Actually, I am incredibly polite. Your grandma would probably like me... though my introverted nature might make me appear rude/stuck-up sometimes. I suffer from a little bit of Peter-Pan-Syndrome but I'm rather responsible when it comes to adult things. Museums, flea markets, antique malls, used book stores, libraries, parks, diners - are some places I am a fan of. Also Home Depot...I rarely purchase anything but I just like looking around in there. Plus, it smells awesome! Invent some sort of Home Depot air freshener and I'll buy the shit out of it.

I would like to get to know and date a really great person. However, I don't date just for the sake of companionship. I don't get caught up in the whole idea of people needing to couple up in order to be happy/complete/blah blah. I'd rather be single than settle for a subpar relationship. Basically, I just want someone that is smart and fun to go on adventures with and to hit up museums, bookstores, buttes/mountains, oceans/lakes/rivers/puddles, and to spend lazy days with; playing scrabble, watching the best cartoons that came out when we were kids, and listening to silly music. It can be serious without needing to be complicated.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying/Wanting to teach myself -
ASL, German (took it in high school but remember about a dozen words) and then maybe Mandarin. Also - juggling, drumming (not now due to living in an apartment), oil-painting, drawing beyond a 5 year-old level, how to be a better writer, lock-picking, fencing, kayaking

I am still figuring it out. There are a few things I'm interested in but I haven't found anything that I'm so passionate about that I could just do it and forget about eating and sleeping. THAT IS WHAT I WANT. I'm interested in film-making, directing/editing. Maybe voice-acting - I'm good at coming up with different voices. I've got a box full of ideas for a sort of web comic like thing. Another box that is just random creative ideas for stories, drawings, song parodies and whatever else. I dabble in photography. I really enjoyed a welding class I took. I think I'd be a good radio personality too. Maybe a part-time gig at a library or bookstore would be fun.

I actually did start a webcomic. It isn't completely horrible. Got burnt out on it pretty quickly though.

Modern society is so...anxious, frazzled, nuts. Desperate for money, constantly worried about work they don't find rewarding or even enjoy, and trying to keep up to date with every little thing in the world that has nothing to do with them. No one should give a shit about what their cousin just had for dinner or that someone from high school they haven't spoken to in a decade went to a concert.

I'm not a bum or anything. I am employed "full-time". I make plenty of money and have a bundle from selling my home so as to not have to stress about finances. I am just not into society's expectations in regards to careers, student loans, decades of debt, working 60 hours a week to afford a super nice house I barely have time to enjoy, a sweet car I only drive to and from work, etc. I mean...who decided we're supposed to go to school for 20some years and then do basically the same job for like 50 years?? That seems like something a crazy person would come up with!
I’m really good at
I evoke hyperbole like it's going out of style.

Being funny. If you'll allow me to be slightly full of myself for just a second...I'm hilarious. I can alter my humor to fit the situation. Sometimes I'll pull out some c-material for the folks at work and still get the room laughing. Usually just quick witted and full of references. Master of the call-back. I can get really dark and morbid too because I find that sort of thing hilarious.

Insomnia/sleeping for 10 hours straight.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Pretty eyes", "Adorable hair", "Cute mouth"

I smile in real life too, I just can't fake it for pictures. Oh, and I guess I don't walk around with bedhead all day too least in public. I have poor posture too, but it's not important enough for me to focus on standing straight constantly...I got other shit to think about.

The six things I could never do without
I don't need any of this. I don't need this stuff. I don't need anything. Except this pair of glasses. And that's the only thing I need is this. I don't need this or this. Just this pair of prescription glasses... And this modern plumbing. - The glasses and the modern plumbing and that's all I need... And this nap. - The glasses, the plumbing, and the naps, and that's all I need... I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something? - And this. That's all I need.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How sad it is that we live in a world where most people are too busy just trying to make a living to pursue their passions. In reality people spend the majority of their time doing things they don't really want to do.

It sure is a crock that mouse holes in real life are nothing like mouse holes from cartoons. Also that eyes don't glow in the dark. Huge let down.

It's so crazy unfair that I'm allergic to cats because I really want one.

I can't stand all the ass kissing that goes on when someone dies. If they were so awesome - why weren't you kissing their ass when they were alive. I to believe that EVERY person that dies was practically a saint? I hope if (when!) they make a documentary of my life they include interviews with people that don't like me or were at least neutral about me.

Dolphins. They sleep with one eye open just so they can FUCK YOU UP. Plus, I hear they're known for raping divers. So they're also sexually violent.

Rappers. Why do they often talk about putting their dicks in the mouths or butts of the dudes they are beefing with? Not that there's anything wrong with that! But I think their intent is that the dude they hate is going to be gay because he got their dick put into his mouth? Except...the one putting the dick in the other guy is enjoying it? The logic confuses me. Is this too vulgar? I'll save the rest for my Apollo Theater performance.
On a typical Friday night I am
I refuse to answer this generic question.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll admit anything. The judgments of others do not concern me. I try to keep it classy though, because I have self-respect.
You should message me if
You think you can put up with me. I'm quite the misanthrope.
-'While misanthropes express a general dislike for humanity on the whole, they generally have normal relationships with specific people.'
- 'effectively functioning in society has little or no value to the misanthrope, and the prospect of fitting into their culture seems to them like idiocy'
-'They will typically be very selective with whom they choose to associate'

You want to speak with British accents all day. OR! Want to roleplay that were ARE British while shopping or dining out. Other accents are fine too. Made up or mixed up bad accents are fun also, we'll just confuse the hell out of everyone.

You are Canadian.

You're a redhead. I don't believe in souls anyway.

You checked 'dislikes children' on you profile. That just means you're awesome. OkCupid removed that choice! Weak. But still, if you do not want kids, that is ideal as I am not having any.
