¡Actively looking to make connections, meet new friends, travel,
hang out, and have fun within the Greater Boston area and
throughout the northeast!
I just moved to a part of the South End that I consider to be one
of the nicest areas in Boston. I'm super happy and excited and
grateful about this turn of events. My front yards are two parks
with fountains, my side yard is a cemetery, the silver line stops
at my doorstep, the community is bouncin', I have an amazing view
of the city, and dayum, I got mothafuckin' skylights. Awesome
Planning on spending a significant amount of time in Maine during
this spring/summer/fall, and hoping to travel to the UK near the
end of summer.
Also, I'm officially bisexual
now, or something along those
lines. I still prefer and will generally actively seek out male
relationships but am definitely open to female companionship at
this point in my life.
Right now, I work as a paid consultant for an organization that
provides a drop-in center as well as support services for LGBT
youth and their allies. It's great fun and very meaningful to have
a job actively building my community.
I'm planning on resuming progress on my degree (Track: AS Biology
-> B.S. Biology/Psychology -> Graduate study in Cognitive
Neuroscience) this fall.
Just started crafting necklaces, bracelets, and other
bead/gem/metal work that I plan to wear, share, and sell. Also
picked up a flute, which I plan to start learning while
simultaneously taking lessons to improve my current level of vocal
talent (Jethro Tull much?).
Other than that, setting a lot of things in motion to make my
present and future life as awesome as can be (and the lives of all
those I can reach as well).
I identify strongly with the dualistic but united elements of
canine/feline spirits, and seek a closely-knit pack of individuals
to go around helping people, making the world a better place, and
getting the most out of life. More than anything, I am looking for
a partner I can love on the deepest level, with whom I can
synergize my pursuits and creative potential to make the most out
of our life experiences. That'd really be something.
I've been practicing Tai Chi
on my own for a bit, and they've done
wonders for increasing my range of motion, flexibility, balance,
and agility. Good for releasing years of stored tension in the
body, too. As I heighten my proficiency, I'm actively expanding to
other disciplines, with particular interest in Krav Maga, Akido,
Capoeira, Chi Gong, and Kung Fu. However, as I am still relatively
new to the martial arts, I'd like it if someone a little ahead of
me in that regard could show me some of the ropes, so to speak.
It'd be nice to have a partner to spar with (among other
partner-oriented activities in to which that may directly segue).
, and running
in to my routine has certainly
made travel-by-foot much more enjoyable. It might be nice to get
back in to fencing
Though a certified bio-manufacturing technician, questioning the
ethics of the industry has lead me to pursue alternate pathways in
my goals. I'm now at the point where I've taken weighty lived
experience pertaining issues of societal, interpersonal,
behavioral, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health. With
the understanding and empathy this has afforded, I've crafted a
powerful set of tools. I find myself with the capacity to reach out
to those marginalized for their race, gender, age, sexuality,
religion, location, nationality, education, finances, ethnicity, or
anything else they have been told is "wrong" about them, and lend a
helping hand or shoulder of camaraderie. I can work with the
disabled, whose physical forms might not be able to express the
true measure of their intent (as well as those in active addiction
- the characteristics of which in this respect are remarkably
similar), have the capacity perceive that, and be an advocate for
those in need. It is truly an honor to be able to hold this
station, and I thank all who have been a part of its fulfillment
for the blessing of their presence in my life.
With this being a core theme of my life intent, there are a
plethora of means I am continually exploring to bring it to
realization, having a lot of fun all the way through. I don't know
if there is a more concise description of an
archaeologist-craftsman, which is in and of itself a shortlist of
the many facets through which I conduct my endeavors (I suppose the
concise job description would be, "me"), but, out of respect and
gratitude for all I have been given, I plan to use this lifetime to
cultivate whatever I can to the full extent of its fruition. I'd
like to see the good things I can create, to find out what I'm
capable of bringing to the table.
Presently, I work as a consultant/adviser/ambassador for an
LGBT-themed youth drop-in center in downtown Boston. I plan to
pursue a degree in biology/psychology/communications in the
upcoming fall. I'd love to put together uplifting, inspiring,
good-sounding music (with EDM/Psychedelic rock being my main field
of focus, but also indie rock, alternative, classic rock style, hip
hop, and metal), and to take on a Carl Sagan-esque role in an
independently produced documentary series is something long to
which I've aspired. While the intricacies of the details of the
experience remain as of yet to be seen, one thing's for sure - it's
gonna be wild. And as to just where it takes me - well, again,
that's more of an afterthought - wherever I go, I'll be happy
beyond all measure, so long as I go there side-by-side with the man
(men, women...) of my dreams.
Oh, and speaking of cultivation, fruition, fields, bringing things
to the table - I think this would be a very
good year to
get to tending that organic garden....
