Came back to Philly two years ago, initially on the path to a degree in the oh so trendy realm of social justice (or English) that has now been postponed (not for long!) And for the record, I had no idea the username was public, and muff is the nickname my Mom gave me at birth. damn it.
I'm on here to meet people, friends, lovers, whatever.
Starting school in the Fall, or finishing up rather, and can't wait to be back in the classroom.
Self summaration- I guess I'm pretty dorky, I like to research (anything), take long walks, talk to strangers, play with words, hit the court for some tennis, overanalyze public summaries of personalities, and not take life too seriously. I also have an undying dream of becoming a professional snowboarder one day. It is probably just a dream, but that's ok.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in the National Guard, currently moving out to the burbs for a break from the city just for a bit. I'm a coffee nerd and have managed shops in Cali and Philadelphia, going back to school in the fall to finish that degree!
After that, no idea, just trying to live graciously and appreciate the simple pleasures that lie outside my humble abode.
I like to meet new people and hear their stories, the many paths people take, and where people have been or where they're going.
I’m really good at
Too many double entendres for a sincere answer. However, some things I enjoy doing, but am not particularly good at, are playing music, gardening, cooking, musing on life and love on my porch for hours, and going on amateur rock hounding/fossil finding adventures...best I've found yet are some fossils at San Onofre State Beach, 10-20 million years old...I think that's really cool.
The first things people usually notice about me
My "youthful" face. and gender ambiguity, suckas.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
i love films with musical scores, such as out of africa, a river runs through it, even harry potter.
my musical tastes are vast and varied, and the repeat-status artists of the moment are chris pureka, lana del ray, valerie june, boz scaggs, and miranda lambert
all timers- stars, red hot chili peppers, miles davis, brand new, and though it pains me to say it, dcfc.
the written/spoken words I dig are mostly those of poets- wordsworth, shakespeare, e.e. cummings, jeffrey mcdaniel, andrea gibson, eliot...
and a few books I love are varieties of scientific experience, 100 years of solitude, hero with a thousand faces, the power of myth, transforming feminist practice, anything chuck palahniuk, and various collections of short, trashy, lesbian love stories.
I love sushi, and making my own. I recently got my own filet knife so that I can buy whole fish from the market and make it at home! veggie style wasn't working for me, though its still good.
Love all kinds of food, but am so so so unfortunately allergic to crustaceans. oh well.
The six things I could never do without
music, sex, food, smokes, intellectual stimulation, and sunsets. no
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Pennsylvania, the stars, and good stories.
And where I actually would like to live.
Oh, and women.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging with friends or searching netflix for new (good) films or the absolute worst horror movies, playing guitar, or hitting up my local bar to join the eclectic crowd of eccentrics. Every other friday means freedom as it is payday, so random adventures, long drives, and loud music are the general requisites.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...I love job interviews.
You should message me if
you would like to.
