Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Artist romantic type bent on creating and expanding the psychology
of heaven in order to benefit all life.
Energetic and joyful eccentric, not at all normal.
Humor on the coarse/abrasive side; oh the contrast, so good.
Bright, self-disciplined, passionate, talented, and driven.
Unconventional but with a strong emphasis on morality, integrity
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Werkin two hospitality jobs, living in west Knoxville.
Earning a little money from photography here and there.
Becoming increasingly involved in social/environmental activism. If
you're into that, we should connect regardless.
Maintaining my practices and self-directed education/studies.
My practices are:
Music. Pretty good at both guitar and bass; played them both for
over a decade. Basic skills and understanding of piano, and
rudimentary abilities at drums.
Listening to, and discovering new music, constantly. I also
consider dancing around my apartment to said music a legitimate
practice as well :)
Writing. Sometimes have a way with words, keep journals, write
things here and there, and am ambidextrous.
Meditation (daily), sometimes yoga and or calisthenics.
Skateboarding (where art meets athleticism) I'll never be pro, to
be sure, but this is how I stay fit and have a deep love for the
Reading. From literature to philosophy, basically everything,
except for romance or horror novels. It's just fine if you like
those things though.
If you'd like to see some of my work, just ask.
Coalescing/adumbrating my life's overall magnum opus.
Details on that upon specific request only, haha.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have an uncanny knack for understanding the quality (that's not
to say quantitatively) of a persons mind almost immediately upon
meeting them. That probably sounds intimidating, but, it shouldn't
be. I don't think that I would have that same ability were I a
particularly judgmental person.
Over the past several years I've learned how to, and gotten pretty
decently good at, understanding, relating to and appreciating
conventional types of people while still holding my own
idiosyncratic paradigms and beliefs. This used to be a weakness of
mine and I'm so very glad that it is no longer. SO very liberating
it is to understand and appreciate all types of people!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Nikos Kazantzakis' Zorba The Greek; B.K.S Iyengar's Light On Yoga;
Osho's Meditation; Hemingway's Garden Of Eden.
Give me good new music, and I'll love you forever. Just a few
artists I'm into right now: Joanna Newsom; Sun Glitters; Belle
& Sebastian; Radiohead; Beirut; Pinback; M83; Alt-J; Drip-133;
Mathbonus; Phantogram; Sigur Ros; Explosions In the Sky; Aphex
Food - mostly vegetarian with vegan leanings. I'm not fascistic
about my diet; I don't waste food or turn down food offered to me
say, at other peoples houses. However, I, unequivocally do not
purchase meat. And I almost never consume the more vulgar types
like, burgers/steaks/pork chops/ etc.
There isn't really a veggie that I don't like and appreciate,
except Arugula, I guess. Still have yet to get over the intensely
bitter types of foods.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Internet, jesus christ.
I can actually do without it, but I am certainly, to an extent
reliant upon it.
Tea. I am a tea fanatic. Particularly greens and whites. (I am
drinking a cup of very strong Genmaicha in between typing this.)
Herbals sometimes too. Maybe earl grey here and there but not much
Clean water. Do not drink tap unless I have to, which is almost
Study and intellectual stimulation.
Some type of expressive outlet.
Freedom to completely unwind, drop coherence and all linear
thought. An abundance of non-sequitur humor. Some type of chaos,
danger, adventure, or romantic endeavor.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My internal system, how it functions, what its needs are, what
effects certain variables have, how to optimize its output.
Love. Because if you haven't yet gathered, true compatibility for
me is ridiculously rare and hard to find. But goddamn if I don't
want to feel someone's heartbeat close to mine here and there.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Routine has but a small, (however as I approach 30) an ever
developing place in my life.
Who knows what I'm doing on Friday.
