My self-summary
I define and live by my own rules, a'la "Live and Let Live."
I like zen and people, generally, make me happy.
I view life as one giant jungle gym.
Lots of obstacles, but so many different ways to traverse them.
That being said, whatever situation I face is always approached with the goal of learning from the experience along the way.

I possess the heart and mind of a punk as well as the soul of a skater.

For something more than superficial, this type of dude is seeking a certain kind of dudette--a lovely lady with a good heart and an adventurous spirit.

In any situation, wanna hit up a show?
What I’m doing with my life
Wandering at my own sort of pace.

xNFP (ambivert, casually more socially-Intro), though as of late, my extroversion is shining through.
I am often mistaken to be purely E.

Learning, almost any chance I can get.
I like experiencing exhibits/events at places like museums and aquariums.
I appreciate nature and often just like to look up at the stars and sky.

I get paid to be a geek.
I mean I would've been a geek in any situation, but oh, you want to give me money for that?!
Sure! I'm in.

Experience, knowledge, and understanding are paramount to my life path.
And living this way never really stresses.
I’m really good at
Walking through life in little rush.
I am often found on the outskirts, sometimes front and center, but often just around, taking in and admiring my surroundings.
Maybe it's something about patience... I'd rather find a specific someone, good for me, than anyone not.

I periodically am enticed to break out into song.
... In the car, shower or around a karaoke bar, after a couple beverages (or even without the drinks), sometimes it just flows out.

I have been diagnosed with hakuna matata.
If you have to ask, you just may have been living under a rock for the past 15 years or so...

So with that, I offer this-
1) Don't Panic.
2) Always Pack a Towel
3) Don't take life too seriously, or else you will never get out alive.... wait... hmm....
The first things people usually notice about me
Every once in a while someone digs the face.
Voice, tattoos (only 2/7 are readily visible), attitude...
Energy, heart, drive....

If you follow flow, I was told that I actually spend a bit of time on the horizontal plane... which is a little uncommon.

I could hold my own in a pit:
At the Prodigy show, Liam got kind of upset that I wasn't "with him," listening or following his directions...
I was busy dancing on my own.
Eventually, after the fifth time he asked, though, out of respect, I got down with my bad self.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As a precursor, please be aware that these lists are always going to be incomplete. There is just way too much goodness out there...
I will be forgetting to add some scathingly incredible piece of work, but don't worry, I still think it's pretty spiffy, nonetheless.

You are always welcome to ask (feel free to even make suggestions, I like being exposed to new content).

My last leisure read was Quiet, the link to the author's Ted Talk is at the beginning of my "What I'm doing with my life" section.
Worthwhile to watch and read.

Daniel Quinn's Ishmael is phenomenal, Palahniuk books are a cliche answer (but I love the random facts and dark humor that litter his novels).
Christopher Moore novels like The Stupidest Angel. Read it, it is funny as hell. Mildly offensive... :)
Ender's Game, A Light in the Attic + Where the Sidewalk Ends stirs nostalgia.
Calvin and Hobbes comic collections are entertaining, too.
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy ......

Currently, I am working through a book about Buddhism, a gift that I am quite enjoying...
I also have a book on the History of God (discussing how the mythology spread through the world), sitting, on reserve.
It sounds exceptionally intriguing, as they focus on culture and sociological factors related to the role that major religions played (in their respective regions).

Soon enough, though, I am going to be needing to put significant focus on reading technical documentation...
it will pull me away from recreational reading.
... which I am a little upset about...

Update: Yep, pages and pages of a bunch of techno-jargon.
Sometimes I want to escape... but to be honest, I love what I do, so it's ok.

Also although not TV, I do enjoy various Ted talks and watch them periodically.

Still learning, I've been to some cook-offs and that has been tasty...
At the very least, I'm a fan of Pho Viet.
The six things I could never do without
My skates or boards
My games
My friends and family
A jacket - I get cold when the AC is controlled by Polar Bears.
On a typical Friday night I am
down for events.
It's one of the days I don't have other arrangements to mind.

I'll also periodically be studying on this night, too.

If I find myself at home, I will likely be practicing an instrument, or maybe I am doing something that most everyone else does as well-- watching a couple flicks, reading about wordly affairs, digging into a book, playing a game, chatting with friends, or observing the universe.

I'll likely practice at least one hobby or another, and will periodically make it out to experience something the city offers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not a fancy person, and I don't freak out when everything doesn't go according to plan. I guess that's the nature of wabi-sabi.

I consider myself most like any other person here... but something, I feel, that sets me apart from most is attributable to daring.

...Those times where you are looking over the cliff of life, with an unfamiliar world beneath you.

--Sometimes you just have to dive in.
Worry about the details when they really matter, until then just enjoy the company of the world, around you.

You could likely describe me as flame-kissed.
... but... it may just be fancy way of saying that fire will, from time to time, sear away an exposed area that once had hair.
No matter...

I'm one of THOSE people who likes pineapple on my pizza.


Despite me not trying to be shallow, there are definitely certain physical feature-sets that do it in for me:

Things I appreciate: similar body type\in shape (as in fit). I am not needing someone who lives at the gym; but can't expect to be 100% compatible with someone perfectly content in being round- I've worked to stay in the shape I am in. Not to say I didn't have fun while working, but agility is a must.

Height isn't really that important.
A weakness, I do have though: is unnatural hair colors... I find them cute as f*ck. It's probably a punk thing....

... Being nice WILL get you far.

Sex positive-
Best workout in the world.

It's kind of silly how accepting of violence and gore we are, but people lose their mind when a body part is exposed; I just don't get it, at all.
Maybe the latin, hot-blooded personalities just see the world a little differently than the blue-blooded aristocracy.

I've been missing a sort of tasty feast, too, despite periodically getting bucked in the face for it. Good times.


I actually feel accomplished and happy with life.
If I were to die tomorrow (not that I want to), I can honestly say: "Life was amazing, I've been surrounded by great people and I have been fortunate enough to pursue my dreams, I have seen great places, tried fun things, eaten great food, known love and loss-been beaten and broken down... but rose from the cinders, anew.
When I do go... I feel Death by Black Hole would be a fitting way to wrap things up."

I want to camp out under the Borealis.
You should message me if
You want to fly through the air and try this... cuz I wanna go!

you are looking for a companion/partner in crime, or good... (I'm pretty decent at that, as well)

... you sing out loud to yourself, just cause....
... it's an alright thing to be true to yourself.

... you flow-- I'd love to have a lady to spin with.
I find a lot of joy in flow and to have someone who understands and feels that too... sounds incredible.

.. you have an inkling suspicion that you could be that lady that I could consistently dream of.

... you are a cute and cuddly burner chic who doesn't mind getting out and camping from time to time.

You harbor an adventurous spirit and wouldn't mind sharing some of my hobbies--museums, skating, camping, karaoke, etc--
I have a lot to see.

I dig geeky, sweet, happy ladies; so bitchy, angry, morose, etc.. need not apply.

I still cross paths with people who lack a sense of compassion and/or empathy. If you lack these qualities... it also is kind of a deal-breaker.
(GGG - we're all in this together, so help each other out)

... if you feel it'd be worthwhile to say hello, do so.
I usually respond and like to hear how others spend their time living.
