My self-summary
Looking for a dance partner. You like soul night?

I am married and am only looking for friends.

I consider myself a sponge, I soak up everything. I find people fascinating and am always interested in others lives, ideas, and behavior.

I like things to be first practical and then beautiful. I don't see the point in keeping things with little to no purpose.

Contradictory, I have a lot of material I save to use for projects I never get around to starting.

It's really hard for me to purchase anything new. For so many reasons.

I'd take nature over anything always.

I really dislike small talk.

My okcupid profile leans towards my more serious side, but I am actually a very silly person.

I like karaoke, I like dancing.

I have a feral cat colony of 8 I feed and house in my backyard. They are all fixed. I built them a home from scrap lumber. I love watching them interact with each other. They frolic and play and sleep all day. They act happier than most cats I've met who have owners.
What I’m doing with my life
Personal assistant/organizer for a small-mid size business. Wish I was working on my own goals.

Buy local enthusiast.
I’m really good at
Dancing.
I'm a belly dancer. Not a traditional one.

consequently

I'm really bad at:
Sleeping.
Pretending to be interested in topics I'm not interested in.
I do try.
I usually just fail at keeping my mind from wandering.
Describing. I can never find the right words.

I am mediocre at:
bike maintenance
running
herbalism
sewing
singing
gardening
making things from scraps
cooking (paleo)
most things.
The first things people usually notice about me
People who tend to be more critical than average probably notice my flaws. People who lean toward a more positive nature probably notice my more attractive features. Most people probably notice both sides. I guess it depends on the person noticing me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read, mostly non-fiction, studies, and articles nowadays. There is so much to learn. It's actually quite overwhelming.

These books changed the way I view the world.

Consumed
The spell of the sensuous.
The tipping point
The working poor
Musicophilia
A mind of it's own.
Lies my teacher told me.
The Paleolithic diet.
Sacred and Healing Herbal Beers.

Jack London. Tony Hillerman

TV

Comedy. Peep Show. 30 rock. rick and morty. Bob's burgers and the like. on and on and on.

Mad Men.

I feel like The Middle is a pretty underrated show.

Most of my interests are ever-changing. I'm starting to discover who I really am by what sticks.
The six things I could never do without
Baths.
Sound of rain.
Swimming in fresh bodies of water. The ocean less so, but still enjoyable.
Sauna or warm environment on a cold day.
Dancing. Music to dance to.
Vinegar and Baking soda.
Riding my bike.
Being outside, mainly in the sunlight.
Pastures. I prefer pasture to forest.
Reading about the world (universe) and it's inhabitants (everything) and how it all interacts with each other throughout time.
Solving world issues in my mind.
Day dreaming. Thinking, thinking, and more thinking.

That's more than six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The source of people's problems.
nature v.s. nurture.
how to change.
how others perceive the world.
how I perceive the world.
why we are different.
why we are the same.
why people write what they do on their profile.
why I write what I do on my profile.
why we apply positive value to some traits and not others.
how most things are up to chance not willpower.
why we think things are better now.
how so many people are mainly unhappy or numb.
rediscovering things we used to know.
minimalism.
want vs needs.
wanting less to live more.
where things come from, how did they get there, how do they transform the world, what are the pros and cons of their existence.
why people behave the way they do. how peoples born perspective is influenced by their environment which determines their behaviors.
Realizing I'm in the top 1% of the world. And at the bottom of the U.S.
nutrition.

body language.
the many things I have planned to do.
thinking about thinking.
the past, present, and future of everything I see. from kitchen cabinets to president lincoln. if it exists or exists in theory, I want to understand it.
the world being overpopulated.
why this isn't discussed more.
is there nothing to do about it?
will it solve itself?
at what point will people realize there are too many people and stop having babies?
whether I want to have children or not.
I don't.

I love science with a passion, but I am skeptical. I think scientific studies are like bible quotes, you can always find one to uphold your ideas. Scrutinize everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Introverted.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm very honest. I'm also a really good liar. I just hate lying. Int/fp
You should message me if
