Being a nerd is hardly controversial in SF, but just in case I've managed to self-attach any negative stereotypes: I am also warm, kind, quick to laugh, and unwaveringly loyal to the people I love.
I spent a lot of my childhood outdoors, which imbued me with a deep and abiding fondness for the natural world. I am never more at peace than when I'm hidden under a forest canopy or high up on a mountainside. Favorite excuses for visiting nature as an adult: hiking, snowboarding, and skiing.
If I'm indoors, I'm probably reading or doing some kind of social gaming (board games, card games, you name it). I'm also returning to Muay Thai after a decade-long hiatus. The near future will doubtlessly unroll as a tapestry of skinned knuckles and bruised shins.
Animals easily command my attention. I will happily cross the street to befriend a stranger's dog. In fact, I think we could all take some lessons from dogs: enjoy the present, be excited about everything, and lick your own junk when given the opportunity.
I'm also pretty upset because OkCupid clipped the final "1" off of my name. It was SUPPOSED to end in "1000101".
Bonus points if you figure out why this matters.
