My self-summary
Imagine, if you will, that you have unlimited time, money, and talent. Can you list 20 things that you would do with your life? My sister asked me that question several years ago. I took it to heart and have tried to use it as a framework for my goals and dreams since.

In keeping with one of the most important goals on my list, I’ve traveled with the desire to really experience the places I’ve visited. Every destination has something to offer; different sites, smells, interactions, and adventures. I try to take a “big” trip every two years, but it has been almost four since my last. If you really enjoy travel then you can definitely relate to my quandary. And, if you really enjoy travel as much as I, then I’m sure you’ve thought, “Wouldn’t it be nice to just take a fun, relaxed trip with that wonderful “other” person?” If you’re a good travel companion, then you get extra points!

As for my personality, I often think I’m a study in contradictions. Maybe that has something to do with my being a Libra who always seeks balance in life. I grew up on a farm but I love to explore the world. I’m fairly well educated, but I don’t think I have the ambition to find a cure for cancer. Since leaving home, I’ve lived in apartments in several different cities, but I love home improvement projects and would love to have a place in the country. I know how to change the oil in my car but I have the wisdom to know that it’s worth $20 to have someone else do it. I love my family, but I have a much closer relationship with my friends. I’m 41 years old, but I still love to read comic books and sci-fi/fantasy novels.

Ultimately, I would want anyone reading my profile to come away with the understanding that I embrace life with passion. No matter our beliefs, I feel that we get only one life in this form, with this freedom. I want to explore and experience as much as I can. It would be great to meet someone who shares that same view. So, if you have something about which you are really passionate, tell me about it and I’ll tell you about mine. At the very least, it should make for an interesting dinner conversation. Who knows? Maybe that exchange of ideas and goals is something we can build into a lasting relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Geographer. In my mid-30's, I went back for my Masters and have worked as a Cartographer since graduation. I lived near DC for three years and have just recently moved back to Tennessee. I've been making money as a consultant, so I'm thinking about making that a full-time business. After all, life is an adventure so as long as I enjoy my work and make good money, why not pursue it?
I’m really good at
Haha! I can't help but wonder what kinds of crazy things people write in this section. However, to keep it PG-rated, I'll say that I'm really good at anything I enjoy doing. I'm good at fixing things, houses in particular. I'm good at working on cars, but I have the wisdom to know that I would rather pay a professional if the price is fair. I'm also really good at making maps and I rarely get lost (the whole Geography thing).
The first things people usually notice about me
First thing is probably my eyes. But, I'm usually smiling, as well. Message me and maybe you can find out for yourself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books are mainly in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre, but I love the "Dirk Pitt" series by Clive Cussler, as well. My favorite movie of all time is "Raiders of the Lost Ark", hands down. As for music, I would say that my favorite genre is World Music. I enjoy listening to almost anything except Rap. I don't really have any cultural frame of reference for life in the inner-city, so it doesn't really speak to me. As for food, I'll eat just about anything except Thai food. That stuff can melt steel so I have no desire to try to ingest it again.
Six things I could never do without
A sense of adventure, a good pocket knife, comfortable shoes, good friends, a passport, and a great travel partner.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I would like to go on my next trip or trying to figure out if I can actually make money mining gold. I really like to daydream of adventurous ways to make money.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going on a date, hanging out with my friends, camping, watching a movie, or packing for a trip.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I detest spiders. I try to be fascinated by them, but, ultimately, they give me the creeps.
You should message me if
You are cute, funny, even-tempered, and have a sense of adventure. I don't think staying at an all-inclusive resort constitutes travel, so if you aren't afraid to explore the world, then message me. Maybe we can at least have a nice dinner and laugh about the crazy things we've done.
