I'm always learning also. I love cosmology, astronomy, theoretical physics, philosophy, and am learning about mindfulness. The way my brain works (for example): I'll wonder why a star I see is twinkling red and read up on the astronomy which leads to reading about the curvature of the earth which leads to Paleolithic art and primate evolution to chemosynthetic life in the ocean and so on. That's one thing I love about my job: it is rife with new challenges frequently which requires me to learn and grow. I'm a consultant in the non-profit and education realm. Let's talk about the state of public education in the US. ;)
I'm from Cali but have been in MN for over 5 winters now (I count by winters). Spent a few years in the South getting my Master's in Sociology and landed a job here while still finishing my thesis and never looked back. So I have nice places to visit all my friends. I'm a Social Scientist by trade, and many other things by night (that kinda makes me sound like a super hero, so I'll just go with it). Evenings are spent at the gym and exercising the dog most frequently. I tend to fall asleep reading a book or listening to something on Youtube (lectures, podcasts).
A perfect evening for me after a hard day's work is a solid workout followed by a dog walk in the snow, a healthy meal, and some reading that really makes me think before bed. Or a date with you. :)
Politically liberal but not all that interested in politics (love the Daily Show however). Can quote a lot of South Park and Family Guy, and Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. I get stupid pop songs stuck in my head often and have to listen to them over and over to make them go away. Man crushes include Leo, Ed Norton, Sam Harris, and a few others I'll share later.
I like people who are smart but are able to be a bit goofy. I'm interested in finding someone to build a meaningful, healthy relationship with. I have my life together and am mentally healthy and appreciate those qualities in others also.
