Hi. I'm Mogwai. It's nice to meet you. :)
In August I moved to Portland from Austin, TX. It's the first time I've lived outside of my home state.
I'm somewhat restless. I don't like staying in one place very long. I thrive on change (though like anyone I can still find change scary). I've always had this strong sense of time running out and the need to experience everything as quickly as possible. Despite that I feel like I have been inactive for too much of my life. A lot of that, I think, has been due to fear of failure. I'm working to take more risks these days.
Yeah I'm a geek. My life is full of lots of geeky loves and interests. Doctor Who, anything Joss Whedon, costuming, skeeball, etc.
I love fantasy novels. I don't play RPGs but I do sometimes like sitting in on them. I'm addicted to webcomics.
Most of my social life is tied up in Burning Man and Flipside. I do a lot of camping (glamping) and art. I prefer house parties to bars.
I am a massage therapist by trade. No I will not give you a freebie massage and please no "happy ending" jokes. This has been a good career for me though it is not my life's pursuit. I have many other interests I wish to pursue.
My interest in photography has been increasing again, though I still can't afford any fancy equipment to really get into it. Want to go on an photography adventure tour with me?
Oh, and I, um, rather hate organized team sports. Mostly into alternative sports like snowboarding, slosh ball, Calvin ball, and flaming soccer.
Ok so I don't watch network tv, but I am still addicted to watching shows I like on my computer. Help me break this addiction! I can't stand sitcoms though.
I have hypothyroidism which causes me a wide range of health problems. However, I am not in any way dainty.
I think a lot about my health and the role of food. I was a vegetarian for years (but lately I eat whatever is available). I am an aspiring raw foodist, but that's a hard lifestyle to pursue without plenty of money for fresh healthy food. I'm badly addicted to sushi.
I am an energy chameleon so I do well around energetic happy people. I love acting silly and goofy just to make other people smile. Music and dance therapy are great for the soul. If I'm driving down the road and see someone dancing away in their car it makes me happy. I do it plenty myself.
I love to flirt. But sometimes people take it more seriously than I mean it to be. I don't mean to lead people on so I often tone down the flirting. I'm also very playful, sometimes in an overly physical way that can annoy people (a bad habit I developed to compensate for my lack of wit). It's a habit I'm trying to break.
I love to dance but it's hard to find music that really moves me to it. When I do find it I just can't stop. I don't really dance that often. When I go out I'm much more into running around being social than the event itself.
Instruments I want to learn but have yet to: violin/fiddle, banjo, mandolin, trumpet.
I very strongly value honesty. No really very strongly. I would much prefer being hurt by the truth than by deceit.
