The south carved out a place in my heart during undergrad at Winthrop University - it taught me about bluegrass, how much I love the woods, and how you have to know people sometimes in order to love them. I'm restless - want to move to white water and snow and mountains…
I'm interviewing for a partner in crime… job requirements include: The ability to make me laugh. Desire to take care of the earth (compost, recycle, eat sustainably, locally when possible, refrain from littering); proficiency in outdoor play (backpacking, white water boat ridin', hammocking etc); reverence for my sleep (10 o'clock is bed time - unless there's some kind of awesome raging going on of course); ability to budget time and money (and communicate about what is important)… You have to be able to tell me when I'm annoying you. Because I'm going to tell you. You also have to keep your promises. (which really means just have the foresight not to promise what you can't live up to).
You also must like my Molly dog.
