I'm a single dad, have been now for over a year, with very little time on my hands to do anything but school, work, and, well, be dad. I recognize that I may not be in the most prime position to join the ranks of the dating world, but I thought it'd be at least nice to chat around and meet some new people (even if nothing beyond friendship comes of it). :)
I've been through a lot over the past couple of years, but I try to remain focused and positive. I've seen a lot of people write in their summary, or what they're looking for, that they need strictly positive people in their lives. I think that's a little vague. While I try to maintain a positive outlook on life, I have my breaking point, and I'm pretty sure everyone else does too.
I really enjoy captivating conversation that can persist for hours. I won't say that I'm totally accepting of everyone's opinions and beliefs (let's face it, some of them, or many of them, are just stupid). But as long as you're not beating me with your ideals, or can understand that a conversation/discussion/debate is just that, then we'll get along great! ^_^
Also, I'm a nerd...and I take great pride in this.
I just started graduate study toward a master's degree in Biological Science at CSU Chico. I work for the bug lab on campus, and super enjoy bugs! ;) I love going outdoors, chasing butterflies, bird watching, nature walks, wandering through creeks, digging for bugs, geocaching, and, in general, just breathing fresh air. I need to do this more, with picnicking and friends.
