My self-summary
Just looking for some chemistry.

I'm big kid at heart, inquisitive, adventurous and fun loving. I'd consider myself an extroverted introvert. Some people don't like labels, but humanity wouldn't be where it is today if our brains could not group and organize information, so I'll proudly claim the labels Geeky (love board games and sci-fi) and Artsy.
What I’m doing with my life
Working fulltime. Learning pottery, guitar & piano. Improving at fiddle, going to bluegrass jams. Earning a degree part time at UofM. Tinkering with bikes or cycling. Spending time with good friends and family when I can. Keeping my eye open for new friends, and eventually I hope, a life and adventuring co-pilot.
I’m really good at
Listening, seeing various perspectives, trying to understand people and what makes them tick. Hugs. Making other people feel special. And massages. I try to make people laugh, or at least bring a smile to their face. I'm a fairly resourceful person, I'm not too shabby at fixing certain things, such as bikes. I'm pretty good at dreaming up new hobbies or things to explore.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm about medium height, and usually have some sort of playful mischievous glint in my eye. I'm pretty resourceful, independent and open to most things. Possibly that I'm more the geeky girl next door type of gal. And that I might have mud (pottery clay) stuck in my hair. That I'm trying to figure out if you play any instruments or board games.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I prefer sci-fi for all things visual media, and non fiction and sci-fi for books. I recently came across this list of documentaries, and aim to watch all but a few categories:

Favorite Books/Authors:
Various titles by Bill Bryson, Malcom Gladwell and Neil Gaiman. Newly added: Chuck Klosterman and Gabor Mate. Currently reading In the realm of Hungry Ghosts, The Brain that changes itself, next up, Dancing in the streets - Communal Joy, Touch, and Eating the Dinosaur. I could use a month just to read at this point!

Favorite Movies/TV:
Anything with a good original twist to it. If I can predict the entire movie, then I'm not really interested. Preferably it fits into the sci fi, but not horror genre. I also appreciate a good thought provoking (not ranting) documentary. Generally will see Marvel films, however watching "The Wolverine" are sadly hours I will never get back.

Favorite Music:
A varied map of alternative, indie, folk/traditional, bluegrass, old tyme, french folk, some dubstep/electronica ect. Currently can't get enough of Florence + The Machine, The New Deal, Leisure Cruise, Lucy Daucus, Yeasayer, Julien Baker, Cigarettes after Sex and Tyco.

Currently following the Keto diet, but otherwise generally Japanese, Thai, Indian, Freshii, Chinese, Cheese, and fruit. In the future I hope to be weekday vegetarian.
Six things I could never do without
My Fiddle/QueTrad/Bluegrass Jams & Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Psychology. Society. Music. How to rewire my brain for health. How to bring down Monsanto. The world, the human condition, and how to ease emotional suffering. How things work. How things are made. What can I take apart. The law of attraction and gratitude. What should my next project be? When can I go camping/swimming next? How much longer should I wait before getting a puppy? What am I / Should I be doing with my life? Relationships, and how to be a really good partner. How to catch up on knowledge with seemingly everyone else/ how to not worry about catching up on knowledge with seemingly everyone else / paradoxes.Pottery designs. Boardgames. The Enneagram. What thing of substance can I offer to the world? Having fun. My family.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully something involving live music, gaming, bike building/riding, working in the pottery studio playing with mud, or else cuddling. More recently: Studying, wishing I was jamming/cuddling. Or: seeing as I just joined a pottery studio, playing with mud! When it's cold.. more likely to just hole up at home.

And hey.. let's not BS. There's definitely time thinking about sexy time. Can I share something with you? Share it far and wide my friends:
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's odd.. when trying to think of what would be considered private.. there are things either too private to say, or too .. normal to be considered private. I have a flying pet elephant that I keep out back, but it's against the law to own a private elephant in the downtown core, so I guess that makes it a secret. SSShhhh!!!!!!!!

Addenum... I don't drive much. I have a full license, and a car co-op membership, but well that's a fear I hope to overcome this summer.
You should message me if
If you are between 36 - 38 or so, and you claim the badge of geekery or outdoorsy type in some form, especially if you play guitar or somesuch. If you know where to find the Tardis, definitely msg me.

At this point, I'm hoping to date, meet people, and see where things lead.

So if you've gotten this far, I'll leave you with this:
The two of us
