Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Keeping it interesting
I am here in Spokane for work from school for way too long out
"East." However the east is way less cool than the west. South
Idaho is my home, but I plan to stick up north awhile. I am thus
looking for new, fun people to spend time while enjoying
Also I am lovig Spokane. Who knew?
I do lots of crazy things outdoors. I have been a mountain guide,
rock climbing instructor, sailing instructor, hiking group leader,
outdoor educator, and general vagabond. Right now I am wrenching on
my motorcycle and bicycling all across town. I try to at least rock
climb or do yoga weekly if not more (they sort of are like the same
thing). And then there is my psychotic dog who thinks she deserves
the limelight all of the freaking time
Long-term, I want a small, sustainable "ranchette"/homestead, with
garden, log cabin, and animals!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Too much school, too much work, but finally to take over the world!
(the same thing we do every night, Pinky!)
Basically, I don't have a set schedule...I revel in the excitement
of the unknown. Ultimately, relaxing, having fun, helping people,
and enjoying life.
I want to rekindle my love of travel - once the dust form this most
recent move settles down. I also need to finish the AT at some
Camino de Santiago, anyone?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Procrastinating. Making coffee, beer, and bread. Driving long
I love cooking. All types of food. Just saying, but I make a mean
Unrelated, but there isnt much in the world that a good whisky
Inappropriate dirty jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Bags under my eyes. Work lately has been quite hectic. Alas
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I haven't read for pleasure much lately. I felt fairly
burned out on reading this past year from school (you can only
re-read 1600-page textbooks on pathology so many times before this
happens), and sadly haven't delved into anything good lately. My
list of to-reads, though, is exhaustive.
**edit**. I just read water for elephants, and thought it was
Movies: dystopian sci-fi and fantasy. Also the new Star Trek
Music: Close to everything. My Pandora playlists consist of:
Wailin' Jennys. Bluegrass. Irish rock, Country, and all of those
terrible 80s/90s songs everyone around has to sing to when they
come on. And then there are the Johnny Cash and Joe Strummer
collaborations, and Willy. Volbeat and Gemini syndrome are current
favorites right now.
I live for good local food, and try to make that a point daily.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good food. Hot sauce. My bicycle/motorcycle. Travel. Coffee. Cowboy
boots, aka leather slippers for your whole foot that youcan wear to
work without people calling you out on the fact (well,
(underscored - people to share the above with - except the boots,
get your own!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Medicine? Philosophy. Life. Metaphysics. Yoga and rock climbing.
Wine. Biking and beer. Medicine. Nagarjuna's Mulamadhyamakakarika.
They're all related (though I'm still working on making one or two
of the connections)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
What is this, 'typical'? I might be either working in an ER,
drinking a beer, or out canoeing. Can't really decide...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to delve into heady conversation rather quickly, and am an
unabashed geek. When I was a kid, my aunt's favorite baseball
player was Matty Gookus, and so she called me by the same. My mom
shortened it to 'Gookus', then transformed that to 'Geekus', then
simply to 'Geek.' might explain a few things.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are fun, witty, like to try new things, have a great time with
people doing things, live on coffee, enjoy being in the company of
others, and are at home in the outdoors and romps around
Humor. You have it.
I am looking for like-minded people who know how to have a good
time. We should start over a coffee, beer or glass of wine, and see
where we go from there.
(Also, what's your opinion on the final comma in a series: before
the conjunction or not needed?)
