I'm a Florida native who hates the heat, an animal lover who eats meat. Unabashed bibliophile who visits the library at least once a week (well shit, that rhymed.) I love tattoos and unicorns. Traveling is my ultimate goal in life. I have a silly sense of humor and I'm not afraid of looking stupid. I like kayaking and hiking, horseback riding and midnight chats. I'm a night owl and can't have caffeine, but damn I love tea.
What I’m doing with my life
Determining my potential. Working odd jobs. Looking into attending mortuary science school and taxidermy classes.
I’m really good at
Is reading a skill? Because I'm pretty darn good at that. Also,
balancing books on my head for long periods of time.
The first things people usually notice about me
Red glasses. Pale skin.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am constantly reading. I always have four to five books checked out from the library that I finish in about three weeks and start again accompanied with a book journal and a long list of ones I want to read. My favorites though are 1984 by George Orwell, The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafron, anything by Neil Gaiman/Patrick Rothfuss/Bill Bryson/George R R Martin. Does the Metropolitan Museum of Art Guide count? Because damn.
Movies: Documentaries (any kind, love them all), old movie musicals, Brotherhood of the Wolf, Equilibrium, My Fair Lady, Ong Bak, Eddie Izzards stand up shows, Robin Hood Men in Tights, Gone With the Wind, Hudson Hawk, anything involving Bruce Willis, Kevin Smith, or Julie Andrews.
TV: Most Extreme Elimination Challenge, Game of Thrones, Greys Anatomy, The Knick, RuPauls Drag Race, Greys Anatomy
I'm always listening to music. My favorite genres are folk, indie-folk, Americana, bluegrass, classic Appalachia, acoustic, singer/songwriter, rock (varying genres)
Food, well, North Carolina style barbecue, and caught and prepared that day seafood. I am also obsessed with avocados.
Games! Rift, Diablo 3, Torchlight 2, Skyrim, Assassins Creed series, Saints Row, Bastion, The Witcher, Fable series, FFXIIII A Realm Reborn, Cities Skylines (as an old Sim City fan this one is hard to admit)
The six things I could never do without
Adventure, Omi (my cat), my family, my car, music, and humor.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How not to be a procrastinator. How to improve myself. Discipline. Philosophies recently exposed to me such as Stoicism and Nihilism. How to let fear and anxiety go.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on the mood I'm in. I could be at the game store checking out a new board game, I could be out with my friends at the pub, or checking out some local event. But anything could happen and I could end up anywhere. I mean, I went to St. Augustine by myself on a whim so who knows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I struggle everyday on overcoming my fears.
I can also crack every joint, except my neck. But that's not really a private thing..
You should message me if
Fun is your modus operandi, hell yeah.
Or if you have a beard. I love dudes with beards.
