*I need to update this. I just returned to Portland after living in Europe for 4 months. I feel like I learned a lot about myself that this profile doesn't reflect.
I am a giant, happy, sometimes ridiculous, american that is willing to trade stories of an insane for a few German lessons, an amusing story or directions to a decent dance club.
What I’m doing with my life
I am trying to become more than a bartender... continuing college as an over 30 punk is fun and occasionally inspiring.
Last spring I ran away to Europe for 4 months. Studying abroad sounded better than anything else I have been doing with my life and it was awesome.
I wish I had more debauchery during my adventure, instead I connected with a whole lot of amazing people and decided to live the crazy life through them. I have enough scars.
I’m really good at
Inspiring others... I have made many missteps in my life. I am
often able to help other people make better choices through sound
advice, shared experiences or a sympathetic ear.
Games... I love all games! Video, Board, Card, Roleplaying,
social... games are the most wonderful way to experience life with
others. We share a rules set and try to manipulate those rules in
our own way.
Being a friend.

The six things I could never do without
Flashy earrings, a book, hoody, headphones, wallet and cellphone...
I am 90's fashioned.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Understanding other people... I often feel disconnected outside of
a few wonderful human beings. It takes a while to earn a place in
my heart, when you have then you are there forever.
On a typical Friday night I am
I bartend. Usually I work on Fridays. If I am not working, I love
to dance or just watch a fil. The film can be in a theatre or on a
couch, but I often find myself loving the experience of watching a
film with people more than most other adventures.
(Edit for Germany... I finish class on Fridays and we'll be trying
to find the most amazing memories after school).
You should message me if
I am here to develop a friendship that has the possibility of developing a relationship. If my profile makes you cautious, don't message me... I am stubborn, and very aware of who I am and want to be.
I will be studying in Europe for 4 months with very few friends in the area. I'd love to meet some new people and experience a little more craziness.
