Vibrant friendships. Yeah, that deserves its own line. There are a few people I know who inspire me, delight me, stretch my emotions and brain, count on me, and stand there for me to lean on. Find those people!
My own heart grows deeper when I stare into the sky. Tall trees and sonorous rain pour peace into my spirit. I feel their life just by standing nearby.
I adore my work. I study philosophy, doing research in a field called metaphysics. It is glorious and exhausting, every day involves uncovering one more starry point of light in the heavenly pattern of necessary reality, and it fills me with a fire to teach my students.
I have no intention of 'settling,' and I sure don't need to. I'm looking for the love of my life, a girl whose heart's on fire for God, whose mind's on fire with everything, and who's damn gorgeous.
Also, grad student at UT Austin. Started college at fourteen, finished a Master's degree in theology from Duke. Just finished a second Master's. Now on my doctorate.

Buuut if I did spend a Friday night in real time, it'd most likely be chilling with friends. Just talking, praying, walking, maybe going out and playing basketball or watching Last Ship.
It may hurt.
