Currently have a jobby job in Denver. It is a paycheck. Working on doing better...Always trying to improve.
Other things I like to do...Well, I love being outside during the warm seasons. Kayaking is something I love to do with a pack of friends...Just being in the water feels like home to me sometimes. On the side of sports, I like racquetball, soccer, volleyball, hackeysack (though I'm nowhere near as good as I used to be.) Oh and sword fighting...Don't worry, they are padded swords. I'm not a big fan of major league sports...I don't follow specific teams or anything like that. Though if I'm in a bar having a drink and a game is on, I will most likely follow it while I"m there. I love to listen to audiobooks. Also while I'm not proficient at it, I like to draw. I have a story that I feel needs to be told and I feel that I could tell it in a comic sort of way.
Oh and I drum. I drum all the time. I used to play drums in an
alternative band (ages ago.) We played at many different venues and we thought we were all that (and a bag of chips!) Nowadays I play a hand drum (called a doumbek) I've played at medieval events around the fire and for countless belly dancers. Its very refreshing to show up at a drum circle of friends and they make a spot for you and wait for your lead. Playing a musical instrument is just part of me...I might
not do it all of the time anymore, but the beat is still there in my heart.
I'm also a big fan of medieval societies. SCA, Dagorhir Belegarth and RenFaire...Any excuse to get dressed up funny and wander around outside is a bonus for me.
What I'm looking for...Well that seems pretty simple...Someone just as awesome as me to share the world with...Not like in the 'you take half, and I take half.' but more like lets explore and experience everything we ever wanted together. Sure there will be obstacles in the road, and times where we each need space, but I just want someone there who will have my back as I set out to live life (and I will have their back as well.) I realize that is a very simple (and yet broad at the same time) statement, but there is no way to condense what I want in a partner into a paragraph, or even a whole page.
What I'm not looking for. I'm not looking for someone who isn't going to treat me like I deserve. I know we all have rough times, but I feel that I am pretty special and deserve someone who is going to care for me. I'm not a fan of lies, rudeness, racist attitudes, and general hostility. That's just not something I want or am willing to tolerate in my life.
Music: I'm really into SKA music...It has such a rich and full sound that it makes me happy :] Mighty Mighty Bosstones is my favorite band ever. Also a big fan of Irish drinking music. (Gaelic Storm, Flogging Molly, Young Dubliners) I also like Portishead, Evanesence (or however you spell it dammit,) Janes Addiction, Billy Idol, Midnight Oil. Smashing Pumpkins, Oh and Nightmare before Christmas sound track...Whenever October hits, I'm rocking that soundtrack!
Movies: Many a classic. And by classics I mean: Star Wars, older Sci-Fi movies (the ones that are sometimes spoofed by MST3K.) Aliens, BSG, Conan, WWZ, Clue, Avengers, Pirates (not the porn!) Harry Potter, Disney, Big Trouble in little China, Tremors, Boondock Saints.
TV Shows: Archer, NCIS, Legend of the Seeker, Castle, Firefly, M*A*S*H, The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Torchwood, SuperNatural, Being Human, Walking Dead.
My five finger vibrams (and extra extra bonus points if you know what they are.)
