What I’m doing with my life
I just finished my undergraduate studies at Sydney University via UW-Madison, which found me living in the beautiful city of Sydney for just over a year. And now I have a big, fancy Bachelor's degree in science, which I don't intend to use at all!

I will be leaving Sydney on the 18th of February and back in Wisconsin by the 23rd of February. By then, I'll be ready to kick some ass, save up heaps of cash, touch base with a number of friends that I haven't seen in a year, go on a date with this one guy, and generally have fun and meet some new people.

I'm presently working at being in the best shape of my life. I actually devote an absurd amount of time to exercising. Well, not totally absurd, but at least an hour a day for six days a week. Three days of cardio, three days of weights, and one day to sit around, eat carbs, play Pokémon, and let my body catch up.

I just finished applying for graduate study in a number of Sport and Exercise Science programs, which I hope to commence in September. My first choice would be to go to Twin Cities university, but I'm not going to go setting anything in stone quite yet.

Overall my life is totally up in the air. I generally, tend to live it without a plan, so I'll just keep being a ridiculous college student and see where that takes me.

Oh and I'm kinda hoping that I meet the one before I'm 25.
I’m really good at
Running, biofeedback, making cappuccinos and other coffee-based beverages, cooking, baking, inventing new meals, making new friends, my job, sarcasm, keeping a beat, weird facial expressions, smiling, not being boring, having really good pitch, swimming, lifting weights, making lists, photography, nutrition, the environmental sciences, maths, biology, being an information sponge, non-sequiturs, being open-minded, being a friend, dancing like an idiot, not dancing like an idiot, helping people, sharing anecdotes, singing, procrastinating, being distracted, and breathing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty sure you're most likely to notice my piercing (it's in my lip), my ear gauge (size 0), my height (I'm 6'2 - 188cm), or my amazing hair (it's amazing), or one of my five tattoos (if I'm shirtless). You may even notice that I'm the greatest person alive and decide to put a ring on that. I may also be busting out a dance move for no apparent reason.

Food: Lacto-ovo-pescatarian. If you want to buy my love, you can take me to an Indian restaurant or a sushi train. But really anything with heaping amounts of fish, butter, salt, and carbohydrates will make me happy.

2) Laughter
3) Music
4) Ideas
5) Friends
6) Hope

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things in general. I'm a super curious and inquisitive person. I love knowing and pondering on the way things work and why they do the things they do. I even think about maybe going back to school for a degree in physics, entomology, psychology, engineering, economics, or kinesiology. I really love just about everything.

I love thinking about memories, and love thinking about the new ones that I'm bound to make. I like to think of fun things to have at the ready when I get an opportunity to spend time with others.

I ponder on ways to make the world better, and how to make it a healthier place for everyone to live in. Despite being unabashedly extroverted, I'm also extremely introspective, so I frequently think of ways that I can better myself as well.

I also go on the occasional wild flight of imagination from time to time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wherever my imagination takes me, as long as I'm not alone. I hate doing things by myself.

Regardless, I'm probably also lost in a bottle of Smirnoff.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The last few months of my life have been a huge period of self-discovery for me. I've essentially spent the last 2 years of my life building up emotional barriers, and it's only now that I'm starting to knock them down and actually allow myself to be vulnerable in front of others. I've become a lot happier as a result.

I used to have crippling body issues and a classic case of bulimia. I'm better now :)

I'm pretty straightforward, almost to the point of being blunt. I may sometimes come off as a jerk because of this, but I promise that I mean well.

My biggest pet peeve is being micromanaged. My second biggest pet peeve if people who chew while smacking their lips. If you do either of these in my presence, I have but one warning: I will end you. And by that I will take steps to cordially rectify your behaviour.

When watching Fox and the Hound, I like to pretend that Vixie is just a really effeminate boy fox. That way my favorite Disney flick can also be my favorite gay romance flick.

I have temporomandubular joint disorder, meaning that my jaw pops whenever I chew food. I only say this because it annoyed an ex-boyfriend of mine to the ends of the Earth! Seriously, he refused to sit next to me while we were eating.

I'm so open about myself that I literally had to go out of my way to do something outrageous so that I had something to keep a secret. Until I play "never have I ever" again, anyway.

I've never read Harry Potter. Shame on me.

There might be one or two other things that could be considered secrets. I'll but them here if I remember.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 18–29
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You managed to read this whole thing (bookish is sexy).
You aren't hung up on discretion.
You don't obsess over petty things like "masc" or "fem".
You enjoy spontaneous late-night swimming trips.
You sometimes find yourself smiling for no reason.
You know how to dance like nobody's watching.
You strive for onomatopoeia in your writing. BAM!
You trade the Pokémans!
You can strike a balance between being sardonic and being fun.
You want to meet in real life.
You want to do more than have sex (that's what Grindr is for, silly!).
You noticed that each of these sentences begin with a different verb.
You think you can handle the crazy.
And only if: You intend to write more than just "Hi how are you?"
And only if: You like being yourself.

Caveat: I don't anticipate meeting the love of my life on OKcupid, but if there's the slightest chance that you fit this description, and this list, (by the way, those are links, you should click them) you are not to message me on OkCupid. But, you are to find me regardless. If that means obsessively trying to figure out any of my aliases (good luck) and everything about me in a night through prowling the internet, or running into me by random chance, that is totally okay. I will likely do the same thing if I find you.

Ready. Set. Go!
