Current, not fun at all update: I'm currently recovering from a deep vein thrombosis or simply a really fucked up blood clot. It has me on short term disability until September. So while I now have loads of free time, I'm not able to do the actual fun summer stuff like play kickball, go on camping or road trips or a simple hike. But I can sit on a deck with the best of them! With that being said, on with the show...
I read voraciously. I fully believe in regularly returning library books late such that a wholly under-funded institution will garner a few extra dollars. I'll frequently read a book at the bar with an IPA or vodka within reach. Not afraid to take a book to a concert and read between bands if I'm flying solo that night.
I play a lot of kickball and am somehow amazing in the outfield according to my team (I'd rather be at second or short.) I love playing it, both for physical fun and competition as well as the small place in my heart it will always have.
I have a love/hate relationship with TV: I don't have cable and don't want it but I sometimes catch myself on a Hulu or Netflix binge, as well as having a significant collection of media on my home server. I think that cable television is really fueling a renaissance of great story telling that network television can't match.
Music is always playing in my cubicle, my house, everywhere I go. I'm really good at falling down the mountain snowboarding. Yes, I play video games. No, you will probably never see me playing them unless you yourself are a fan.
While I'm nothing close to fanatical, I do like sports. In particular baseball & the Giants. Blazers basketball & 49ers football all play second fiddle to baseball. I will not watch Nascar. End of story.
I'm very outgoing and social when out with groups of people. However, when with my closest friends or at home, I can be incredibly mellow and quiet. After long weekends, don't be surprised if I decide to nest at home for a few nights.
I own many hoodies, pretty much only wear jeans and still love skate shoes. They're just all super comfortable. I know how to clean up, worry not.
I'm going to come off as awkward on the first message I send you, there's simply no getting around that. It's the nature of trying to start a conversation, on a dating website, with a random stranger. It's the trifecta of awkward situations.
If you wear cute glasses or baseball hats or both, I'm overly inclined to try to message you. Or are tattooed; not going to lie, I find ink very attractive. Neither of these things is necessary though.
