My self-summary
“Sky is not a limit for me; because I have no limit for myself in life. Because life is a world full of risk taking and possibilities. No matter how hard or easy life is; I will always find a way to enjoy myself; even in the mist of circumstances; because problems is a sense of adventure in sheep's clothing.”
― Temitope Owosela

My general life philosophy is that all experience Is an opportunity to grow as an individual and obtain a greater consciousness. I like that to be a focus in my life. I also particularly love anything that makes me feel connected to culture and the earth. Not to quote the Lion King or anything, but there is more to do than can ever be done.

I am an active person that enjoys to run, and bike. I am currently training for my first Olympic triathlon this summer. It is my metaphorical way of running away from aging; so far it is working. I love sociology, and find myself often thinking about social dynamics; people are freaky, and yet the human condition is beautiful, I find a lot of meaning in the value of humanity. I like to find time to be out in nature, if there were a god, that is where it would be found. I work to maintain an open mind and to acknowledge the vastness of human expression, but I don't get too crazy; I love hippies though.

I am family oriented as I grew up in the classic Mormon seven children family. All Brothers. I love them all. Religious experience isn't a cheap one; I would compare leaving Mormonism to leaving the matrix. Anyway, so yeah, I DO want to have a family, but smaller.

The best way I can describe myself would be as follows: My friend had a gathering where I had a pleasant evening. Later, he had a get together where I wasn't present. I guess people asked where the guy who talked about all the deep stuff was at; I am terrible at small talk.

I am in my final semester of law school! Just saying it makes me happy. I am going to practice criminal defense. The best type of law.

Finally, I enjoy quotes.
"To love means to open ourselves to the negative as well as the positive - to grief, sorrow, and disappointment as well as to joy, fulfillment, and an intensity of consciousness we did not know was possible before." -- Rollo May
What I’m doing with my life
Ever learning what it means to be alive.
I’m really good at
empathetic communication, smiling, and enjoying the beauty of another day.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have blonde hair, I am well built, and I will join any conversation I find interesting. Sometimes I am easily excitable, sometimes I am stoic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love reading philosophy. I am bad about reading fiction, although, I generally like books where the protagonist is battling an idea in place of some type of villain. I like suspense novels. I also love to read about current events..

Movies: If there is a good plot, I will like it. Every other good movie that people generally like, however, I don't like action for action's sake.

Music: I love music that has lyrical value and is something to which I can relate or no lyrics. I like an eclectic mix of chillstep/dub step/edm, Most Trance, some Euro Techno. Music is something I enjoy, especially live, but it is not my existential experience. I have a special place in my heart for sappy music.

I love food. I love to try new food so long as it is not stinky fish (I don't mind fish, just nothing cured) or has ketchup, other than that I am game.
The six things I could never do without
Eye contact
Physical touch
Stories
Family
The ability to reason
Intuition
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Law, particularly about search and seizure issues.
Running, Biking, Swimming, and Nutrition
What it means to be human?
Random theoretical scenarios.
What the hell I am doing with my life.
The world at large.

I think about lots of peculiar things
On a typical Friday night I am
Attending to interesting things. I am generally more introverted.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a cheesy person, but I call it charm. Perspective is everything.

I love it when people break social norms when anger is not involved.

Genuineness on here is kind of an illusion.
You should message me if
I want to hear your story, everyone has something to share, and I love to listen.

Staying in a rustic forest service cabin for the weekend sounds like a good time.

Do you ever find yourself not answering the okcupid questions because the questions are too complex to warrant the simple answer options?
