My self-summary
I've been told that I need to update this thing so here we go:
Well to start with I graduated in December and have been a licensed massage therapist since the first of the year. I LOVE IT!
I am also only actively working a single job: what isn't there to love about that?

I am finally exploring Madison once again.....I had great intentions when I came to town almost two years ago but then school and work happened....you know: life! So show me something new ;-)

I'm a nerd in wolf's clothing........

Currently apartment hunting *sigh*

Last thoughts of the day: HOORAY FOR SPRING! I want to grill all the food! I think it's time to get a new tattoo and take a vacation somewhere I haven't been......hmmmmm

Update once more:
So 2013 is drawing to a close. The holidays are right around the corner, work is picking up, internship is almost over, graduation is almost upon me as is my certification exams......so what am I doing on here right now you might ask? Well curiosity got the best of me and maybe I can't help but complicate things. So for now this is a welcome diversion. I'll be back after the holidays but feel free to drop me a line!

Update:
Well it's 2013 and I do not feel like rewriting all of this hence the update. I feel like it matters since I got on here right away and things were just getting started with my settling in and all that.

I have added another job which largely consists of folding clothing, but enables me to buy great clothes with a kick ass discount!

I'm addicted to Almond Milk (still love cheese: relax!) and Green Machine Naked juice but make my own in the vitamix.
I have an intense dislike of Kurieg....it's true.

I have been participating in random acts of kindness by scraping off strangers windshields.......

I've met some really awesome people on here and overall it has been a very positive thing for me.....which I will be honest I had my doubts so kudos to my friends for the encouragement. Took some time off after doing some dating to sort of absorb it all.
I don't want to sacrifice the possibility of something amazing for the sake of making life more steam lined in the short term, so if you can handle that I'd love to make time for you.

School is AMAZING and I have made the right choice!
Alas my yoga practice has suffered in favor :-( So I am working on getting that back as a major priority. Even though they are temporary, I love my jobs. I work with great people and with the exception of lamenting the fact that I have to get out of bed I like going into work. Everything is falling into place and I'm so excited about where everything is headed. Just one thing missing..........So here I am.

Originally posted;
Well I just moved back to Madison after a six year absence to start another chapter in my life. I am currently redefining myself. I just returned to school at Globe University studying Massage Therapy. I am a former Chef, and while I still love to cook, go out to eat and even talk food, I do not love living the restaurant lifestyle. So it was time to move on.

I work and attend school full time so I don't have as much free time as I once had: it's an adjustment. I'm just putting it out there right away. While I may want to swoop in and take you to all kinds of amazing places that just isn't really in the cards right now. Now a little further down the road.......
So what I'm looking for is someone who doesn't mind my crazy schedule. Someone to make the most of what time I do have.....quality not quantity :-)

INFJ: to those who care.......

I have a wide variety of interests and hobbies.
Obviously I love to cook! I'm very much into wine and even maintain a small collection of special bottles. I love music and going to see live shows. I am a big movie fan when I have time as well. I read allot though these days it is primarily Anatomy books. I also do some writing, painting and other media. I originally attended college as an Art major.
One of my big goals is to do more traveling. I have traveled extensively in the U.S. (I just moved back from Alaska) and I really want to explore the rest of the world!

I'm a very passionate and honest person, intelligent and thoughtful. I believe in always striving for excellence in all that we do in life!

I have recently taken up Yoga and I am loving it!
Anything else we will just have to discuss it over a glass of wine or a cup of coffee.
What I’m doing with my life
Going to school, teaching cooking classes, working as a food stylist, doing some yoga and trying to make the most out of every second!
Oh, and on top of all of that I'm trying to meet someone amazing.
Exploring the mysteries of an Ayurvedic diet.
I’m really good at
I tend to be very expressive. I'm a talker once you get me going (I can come off as a bit shy at first) and I'm told I have a way with words. I am also an excellent listener. I am usually the one that everyone spills their heart out to, and I'm always glad to help. I tend to be very generous with my time, money, possessions, etc regardless of how much or how little I have at the time. If we can't help out one another in this life than what can we really do that's worth doing?
There's a lot of hidden talents as well, I'm an occasional writer (published a few pieces) painter (studied Art in college) and a few others.
The first things people usually notice about me
It's usually my eyes. They are green around the iris and change to blue the further out. They also kind of change color from one to the other. If I'm in short sleeves it's most likely my tattoos.
I've been told that I dress very well......
You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently reading: This is How You Lose Her.
I am an avid reader. Some of my favorites are: Odd Thomas, The Stand, The Name of the Wind, An Object of Beauty, Moby Dick, Dubliners, The Tomb, .....there are allot, I also read a lot of poetry too.
Some of my favorite movies are The Notebook, All things Wes Anderson, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, Old School, Tombstone, Bottle Rocket, 500 Days of Summer, Another Earth, The Dark Knight Returns, anything Pixar.....again this goes on and on.

I love all types of music really, though I tend to gravitate towards indie rock and I have a weakness for the female voice. At the moment I am listening to allot of The Naked and The Famous, The Black Keys, Trampled by Turtles, Mumford and Sons, Greg Brown, The War on Drugs, Little Dragon, Ok Go, Rachael Yamagata, Young the Giant, The Sea and Cake, Meiko, Grouplove, The Gaslight Anthem, Nick Cave, Bruce Springsteen, Florence and the Machine and Voxhaul Broadcast, Tom Waits, Bon Iver, The Airborne Toxic Event, Cults.....

As you may have guessed I love food.....pretty much all of it though I do have my idiosyncrasies.
Adore good coffee, tea, wine, cheese........I'm going to stop there!
The six things I could never do without
Friends and family are always the obvious answers......so not counting them and being strictly materialistic;
IPhone: sad but true, I love it. Apparently its not so true as i have parted ways with my iPhone. Sadly, i do love my new one.......
Music
Good coffee
Good Wine
Dark Chocolate

Right now as it is February, I really want to say heated seats and Burt's Bees!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, all the possibilities and how I will be apart of it.

Thailand! There is some continuing ed available there and I WANT to go!
On a typical Friday night I am
Well if I am not working or studying/in school I am possibly hanging out with my God-son and his Dad and Mom (best friend) or I am at home cooking, catching up with friends over some wine, watching a movie etc. I do go out on the town on occasion I'm just not a wild heavy drinking guy and these days I prefer some place with music or somewhere you can actually have a conversation. Night at the movies or at a restaurant sounds great too. I'm pretty easy going. The only thing that matters is that the company is good!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never been to a strip club
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 26–42
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you are amazing...of course,
If you think I am amazing.
If you think that our differences are just as interesting as our common interests....not interested in dating myself ;-). Opposites attract after all.
If you are interested in living life for all it's worth still are in touch with your inner child, and have an interest in being healthy, alive and living with purpose.
If you can handle and accept that right now I am very busy, that I want to make time for you and that I need support not headaches. Sorry if that comes off wrong but I've been on the wrong end of this situation and find it so very frustrating.
If you think quality time makes up for quantity.
