My self-summary
Hi, I'm Valerie or Val and this is my fourth attempt on okcupid so we'll see how long this lasts. I am avidly a fan of the outdoors, I find much enjoyment in camping, kayaking, and hiking. I also thrive for adventure and finding new things to enjoy and share with others.

At some point I'm looking to move to the west coast or Canada, my second love, so I don't plan on settling any time soon. I would also like to travel as much as possible so I don't foresee children ever in my future. I have strong opinions on many issues such as children, the environment, and gun control. I believe in protecting myself and the second amendment.

My ultimate life goal is to purchase a 1990 Jeep Grand Wagoneer and fix it up into an adventure-mobile including decking it out with a roof tent.

I'm not here to hook up. Rather I'd like to find someone and eventually a group of people who love the outdoors and would love to go camping, hiking etc.
What I’m doing with my life
I am an Associate Web Designer for American Eagle Outfitters. It's not creatively fulfilling but it pays the bills for the time being. I hope to expand my creative work by night to keep my left brain from becoming atrophied.
I’m really good at
• photography / design
• cooking
• organization
• making people laugh
The first things people usually notice about me
• My height, or lack thereof. (I am vertically challenged as some may say)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
dead poets society
lord of the rings/the hobbit
iron man
the girl with the dragon tattoo [swedish series]
big fish

game of thrones
the walking dead

bears den
ben howard
fleetwood mac
black keys
mumford and sons
of monsters and men
fleet foxes
the avett brothers
edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros
passion pit
buffalo springfield
adelitas way
three days grace
five finger death punch
(I like a very wide range as long as it's not country or rap)

I take milk in my tea, my coffee black, the occasional matcha and most certainly a good beer. Unfortunately I do not know enough about alcohol aside from knowing I enjoy stouts, whiskey, rum and the occasional moscow mule.
My favorite foods include roasted brussel sprouts with bacon, pasta bolognese, strawberries, salmon, and just about anything with garlic in it.
The six things I could never do without
• camera
• sweaters / flannels
• art
• outdoors
• books
• the human consciousness
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I am constantly thinking about how much waste we produce as humans and how little people care. I watched an interview of a young girl who produced enough trash in a year to only fill a mason jar and has inspired me to be more conscious of my consumption. My ultimate goal is to be more self-sustaining and less wasteful for the benefit of the future of this planet. We can't command+z that shit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching Netflix, photographing, or wandering around stores not actually buying anything
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a thing for bearded lumberjack types.
Also, I enjoy video games.
You should message me if
If you're able to give more than a few word answers. Also, if you dig the outdoors as much as myself and wish to pick at my brain, by all means message me.

If you don't recycle or at least have some sort of empathy towards the environment, don't bother.
