Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am here in Spokane for work from school for way too long out
east. South Idaho is my home, but I plan to stick up north awhile.
I am looking for new, fun people to spend time enjoying life.
I enjoy doing an abundance of crazy things. I have been a mountain
guide, rock climbing instructor, sailing instructor, hiking group
leader, outdoor educator, and general vagabond. I worked running a
climbing gym and a cooked for my own catering service once upon a
time in grad school. I would totally/sort of plan to live in a van
(old-school westfalia) down by the river (awesome, no?).
Right now, (when not working) I wrench on my motorcycle and bicycle
all across town. I aim to at least rock climb or do yoga weekly if
not more (they sort of are the same thing). And then there is my
psychotic/adorable dog who thinks she deserves the limelight all of
the freaking time. And has the puppy face to prove it
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!)
I don't have a set schedule...I revel in the excitement of the
unknown. Ultimately, I strive to relax, have fun, help people, and
enjoy the shit out of 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. But
you can sleep when you're dead...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I enjoy many types and genres. Currently finishing Atl
Gawande's Being Mortal.
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 you can 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 somehow, cogito...
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...
Maybe all three?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
An anecdote: 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.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are fun, witty, are not afraid to try new things, live on
coffee, enjoy being in the company of others, and are at home in
the outdoors and romps around town.
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.
(My heuristic- what's your opinion on the final comma in a series:
before the conjunction or not needed?)
