Something indicative of my character is that it flabbergasts me when someone says "I don't know why I believe in X, I guess I just never thought about it". Above all, I question. I question everything, everyhow, everywhy; I question everyone!
Everything I do is more or less dictated by my mood. Right now I feel sombre and patient so I'll rewrite my profile a bit. Apologies if it comes out dry.
My goal is to find out exactly what I want, and go there at unprecedented speed. Everything I say is the unmitigated truth unless I'm in a mood. More on that later.
I'm highly analytical, abstract, philosophical, critical, well-read, predisposed to episodes of frenetic research or artistic toil, and "suffer" from whatever first world problem you can pull up. This isn't to say I'm not grateful or don't value charitable work or am detached from physical sensation. One can be all of those without conflict.
I may be an anachronism, but that's half the fun. I'll probably end up in academia or illegally operate a houseboat that doubles as a part-time land caravan selling sitars. Who knows.
I work out a lot: running, biking, swimming, hiking, and find sanctuary in nature.
For whatever reason, I feel it's a more comprehensive approach to dating to mention that I do consider myself very physically attractive. It is a result of a rewarding and challenging fitness regime and lifestyle, and I take due pride in it. However, I don't consider my primary assets to be in my appearance because I have too much faith in my literary and analytical competence to waste it on preparing myself for the viewing of others. By all means, if you disagree, contact me for discussion. I don't intend to pursue beautification beyond what's amusing and of recreational value to me. I present as I like, reject what I please and pay no heed to social convention. If you value appearance highly, please don't contact me. If you can accept my appearance as an expressive but ultimately meaningless facet of my company, I'd be more inclined to know you.
The below is what I've retained from a previous edit:
things i enjoy tend to be related to philosophy, the future, humour, and history.
in addition, i enjoy the novel, the nostalgic, the dystopian, the faraway
the specifics...i live in a suburb. i read and paint with most of my time that's left over from school. i try to maintain the upkeep of a well-groomed and informed individual but some times i don't care: it can be exhausting.
at school i'm studying creative writing. i enjoy it but i look forward to other, more stimulating things. in the fall i'm supposed to transfer to the university of wales (lampeter campus) and i'm excited for that. someday i hope to have tropical fish.
i come with complications -- bipolar -- sleep paralysis -- excessive judgment -- anxiety -- endless rumination -- dramatized morbidity. i know these aren't rare and incurable, but they do cause me distress (see, there's the dramatization coming through).
i'm concerned with my character and the theme of morality as a whole. not necessarily in a self-improvement way, more so in a curious, mystical way.
i'm also interested in mysticism. primarily atheistic mysticism, although i won't turn a way a theistic mystic with a holistic mystic heuristic.
