First of all, I work full time as an EMT in the city and in January I'll be starting school to become a paramedic.
I prefer to eat my chocolate chip cookies one spoonful at a time!
I'm sarcastic and I love teasing friends and partners. If you can match me tit-for-tat, I want to hear from you.
One of these days I will grow my hair and beard out long enough to braid together. I will then spend the day roleplaying as Chewbacca in public.
I'm geeky. Love books, games, and watching shows. But not all of the time. Sometimes I like to have adventures!
Some of my adventures this year will involve: randomly going to cities/states I've never been to, white water rafting, a zombie run, hiking in parks I've not yet been to, and whatever else fits into my budget and brain.
I want a long-term relationship. But I'd be happy with just plain old platonic friends. It's possible! Seriously! I was a bridesmaid for a close friend I met off of OkC some years back. Just between you and me.. Her husband is fantastic and I'm glad she chose to keep him :p
What this means is I have a career that matters. I'm also broke. And because I'm working as an EMT will remain broke. Shit you not, I would probably make more at Wal-mart. Or working at the adult lazertag place. They start at the same hourly rate. Lmao. Definitely bar-tending. But it's more important to make a difference. It makes it easier to hold onto ones sanity.
Also do some bartending for money. It can be a very fun job. Also awkward. There is so much awkward. If you're bored, ask me to tell you a story.
... By reading this you're sworn to secrecy... I'm totally training to be a ninja! Yup, I've been spending 2-3 days a week learning BJJ and Aikido. Something more entertaining than just going to the gym.. And is also why I'm constantly scratched up and bruised. So no, it's not my cats being abusive.
-Alert- A beard is missing. Presumed kidnapped by corporate policy. Last seen with Gillette. Reward offered if returned.
When it comes to music my tastes are eclectic. There is a song or artist in just about every genre that I like. Tend towards rock and, lately, folk/bluegrass.
Mumford and Sons(which leads to Trampled by Turtles, Greensky Bluegrass, and more)
If you combine a violin and/or a bagpipe with my rock I will probably love it.
If you want to whine about your tractor eating your dog right before a grizzly bear did a cannonball onto it.. I'll probably hate it. After Johnny Cash, most country just got.. to lame and poppy for my tastes.
-Stockholm Syndrome. It ensures my kitties love me!
-Irreverence. Nothing is sacred. You have been warned.
-Honesty. Hope I don't need to explain that one.
-Toilet paper. Seriously, grab the wrong thing to wipe with while you're out in the woods and all kinds of bad happen.
-OCD. Because that gives me a sixth thing. I need a sixth thing. It asks for 6 things.
I currently work every weekend. 14 hour shifts in the city are great for having lots of off days(even if those will disappear soon) but not so much good for ones social life.
If you hate boredom. I may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I've never been accused of being boring.
Or you can do it because sometimes it's just nice to have a conversation with someone who wants a long-term, preferably(though it doesn't have to be as long as it's consensual on all fronts) monogamous relationship. And knowing that if it does move to a date then sex is NOT the goal in the first 5 minutes. Obviously I need enough time to unset the table and make sure all the dishes are stacked by type and size. There's no OCD here.
