I can be fiercely independent but don't let that scare you, I love people and value having friends I can depend on. I'm a rambling soul, trying to find inspiration in every day life and not let things get too predictable. I'm an explorer. You can find me at late night shows/dives on weekdays or getting up early to wonder through local parks and forests. I like live music, nature, trail running, hiking, backpacking, photography, travel, attempting to draw and play instruments, environmental advocacy, climbing, health and nutrition, kayaking/fishing, etc. I can be quite introspective as well as a bit silly at times. I try to push myself in some way every day.
I'm an Atlanta native, but my circle of friends has been getting smaller, and I've been finding myself going out alone or with the same 1 or 2 people again and again - not that I don't still have fun!
I don't have any lofty expectations for meeting the perfect match on OkCupid. I feel like I'm finally coming into my own as an person now, but I'm still trying to find a life/job/career path that is more rewarding and satisfying to me, and that takes precedence over 'finding love' or 'settling down' right now. So I'm here for friends, or more, and I'm not ruling out any possibilities. If nothing else, OkCupid is an interesting social experiment and a good measuring stick for how I am doing in life.
