I'm very analytical, logical, organized, etc. My partner need not be, but consider this fair warning that I am. I have a bachelor's degree in math, and I've been working at an engineering firm named Harris Group for over seven years now.
Despite being meticulous and detail-oriented to a fault, I also happen to be a pretty laid back and easy-going person. This sounds like a contradiction, but it's not. It's more of a hierarchy. Accommodating the person I'm with is more important to me than catering to my own idiosyncrasies. I tend to avoid confrontation and think that most misunderstandings could be avoided if everyone would follow the old adage of learning how to put themselves in another person's shoes.
Needless to say, I enjoy having interesting, philosophical conversations with people who do and don't share my beliefs. I think everyone should try to be open-minded, but I also think that not believing in any absolutes is completely ridiculous (although unfortunately very common in our culture).
"..you cannot go on 'explaining away' forever: you will find that you have explained explanation itself away. You cannot go on 'seeing through' things forever. The whole point of seeing through something is to see something through it. It is good that the window should be transparent, because the street or garden beyond it is opaque. How if you saw through the garden too? . . . a wholly transparent world is an invisible world. To 'see through' all things is the same as not to see." -C.S. Lewis
Sometimes I think atheists can be just as close-minded as Christians, if not more so. Although I'm agnostic, so I totally understand both sides and have no qualms with either.
Anyway, I love music!!! It's a huge part of who I am. I'm not picky about which type (alternative rock, hip-hop, bluegrass, punk, and reggaetón are some of my favorites), but I can't understand people who just don't like music at all.
I love reading. It's all about the classics for me: J.D. Salinger, Ayn Rand, Edgar Allan Poe, Kurt Vonnegut, and even a little Thomas Hardy when I'm in the mood for it. Although, I have found some good modern stuff along the way too, like the Harry Potter series and anything by David Sedaris. I would absolutely LOVE to meet someone with a really sexy voice who wants to read out loud to me. I like boys who sound like stoners and girls with raspy/weird voices like Zooey Deschanel or Starlee Kine from This American Life.
I'm into the carefree, artsy, hippie type girls. Bubbly, maybe even a little bit innocent. Smart in a deep, perceptive, and mature kind of way. Like wise, rather than pretentious.
Lastly, I'm a Libertarian. I realize that there are all types of scales associated with this term (I'm not a complete anarchist, for instance), but I would prefer to be with someone at least partially on the Libertarian grid. It just explains a lot about the type of person I am (and a little about why I love the show South Park). It's simple, really. I believe everyone should be able to do anything they want as long as it doesn't affect anyone else's freedom to do the same. Period.
So that’s about it. I'm Heather. I have two sugar gliders named Peyton and Eli. I love music, my family (especially my three little sisters who mean the world to me), reading and writing, graffiti, NPR, optical art, whiskey, bowling, architecture, traveling, hacky-sack, billiards, mythology, cuddling, and a bunch of other cool shit.
