I am a passionate, gregarious, athletic klutz. I'm unconventional, "weird, and eccentric, but I wouldn't like you any way."(quoted from my best friend). I'm a liberal and a socialist. I don't believe in god nor am I religious. I love to build and create.
I work hard in my career and volunteer as a leader in my union. I live in a small apartment because I have no need for excess space I barely use. I don't own a car because I see it as a luxury I rarely need.
Education is very important to me. I can often be verbose and sometimes I have no tact.
With that being said, I'm looking for someone who has similar beliefs. Someone kind and compassionate and may often be accused of being a dreamer. If you have your wits about you, love learning for the sake of it, and being funny, well, maybe we should talk.
My contest is only with myself, to do it right, with power and force, delight and gamble--Matt Dillon as C. Bukowski in Factotum(not a fan of Bukowski but I like this quote because it's how I like to approach my life.)
Inside every cynical person, is a disappointed idealist.--George Carlin
As much as I am a cynic, I still believe in hope and I am quite optimistic.
I was told recently that I go about my business the way someone my age should but I have the personality of someone younger.
The Fountainhead-favorite statement on individualism. Although, I don't agree with Rand's philosophy, I appreciate her comments about individualism. I love my individuality.
My favorite quote about books--"we need to make books cool again. If you go home with someone and they don't have books, don't f#ck them."--John Waters

Being a stand up comedian.
You are a straightforward, confident, intelligent woman and you think we can make each other laugh.
You like tall klutzy nerds who are adept at building things. We can share our interest in science and learning.
You read books
These things are a plus but aren't mandatory:
You're tall 5'9"-6'0".
You have freckles.
You are a comedian.
You are a scientist.
You don't own a dog. They're fine animals, I like them, but I don't want one as a pet.
Finally, you should message me if you're not one to hang out the passenger side of your best friend's ride tryin' to holler at me.
