I'm passionate about animals, the environment, living simplistically, and sexuality. I'm in a vet tech program, and I get excited learning about anatomy, medication, terminology, parasites - everything! I am mostly vegetarian, try to limit animal products in my fridge and pantry, but sushi is my weakness.
My recipe for happiness: people to wholeheartedly love, a job that pays the bills that I don't dread going to, a passion I feel I am actively involved in, and some kind of "high" (exquisite happiness and sex/orgasms - There's no drug testing for that! = )
I am an openly sexual person, but get caught up in internal debates about how I am viewed for that (and whether it matters - if the right people will see me the way I would like to be seen...) I love sex blogs, books, photography, fantasies, erotica, the science behind all things sexual, people's "deep, dark" secrets that don't sound so scary to me, and having conversations about sex that are not flirtatious in nature.
I don't feel that I can ever really be someone's perfect match. That's why I am not super interested in monogamous relationships. I don't plan on getting married or having children, but I am looking for long-term relationships and I do love kids. Polyamory is important to me - I don't think I should try to confine my love to only one person in a formula that doesn't ever seem to work out. To me, commitment is about being there for someone, loving deeply, being fair, honest, open, dedicated... It's complicated in some ways, but so is monogamy. = )
"simple moments of exquisite happiness" is the only tattoo I have right now (It's like the clouds that looked like fish scales two days ago, or a book that makes me think about things in entirely different ways, or when my little sister tells me randomly that she loves me) I plan on getting another tattoo soon - one that says "Not all those who wander are lost." It's from The Lord of the Rings (adolescent obsession still holds a strong place in my heart!)
