I'm Rubaiyya, and I've been living in Madison for two years. I love the town and I'm enjoying opportunities to explore both the Madison area and greater Wisconsin now that the polar blast is over.
I'd like to make more friends and find more and interesting things to do with them. Finding relationship(s) -- see end of this section -- is a lower priority.
My main outdoor passion is scuba diving. I certified in October 2013 so I could dive on vacation in Belize, and my love of the underwater world has consumed my life in a very happy way. I just earned my AOW card at the beginning of the month and went wreck diving for the first time on my 25th birthday.
My other outdoor passions are sea kayaking, Stand-Up Paddling, and a little bit of hiking. I want to start snow-shoeing next winter. I put on a few extra pounds when I moved to America's dairy land (cheese! fried cheese! custard!) and would love to find a Couch-to-5K training buddy.
However, don't confuse me with someone who genuinely lives outdoors - I am in equal part a couch potato. My indoor hobbies include vast amounts of internet news, watching ensemble TV shows on Netflix, reading, and studying foreign languages (I speak five). I've never been a very craft person but seeing the number of Pinterest cross-posts in my Facebook feed that I do, is convincing me that I might want to change that.
