"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
I'm on a mission to wring every drop of awesomeness out of life. I'm not interested in a "normal" life, whatever that is. Life is too short to not take advantage of every second.
Life is an incredible thing, and each of us is incredibly lucky to get to experience it. Stop reading for a second and take a deep breath and just let the knowledge that you are a living, sentient being wash over you. Isn't that one of the most amazing things? Feeling alive is something I crave, and I seek it out wherever I can.
I'm a strange cross between a nerd and an adventure junkie. I like to step beyond the edge, explore, and have adventures. I skydive, BASE jump, ride motorcycles, snowboard, rock climb, hike, swim, and swing on ropes and generally try to have as many awesome adventures as possible. When I'm not out and about you'll most likely find me with my nose buried in a book, playing board games with friends, exploring the strange place that is the internet (usually geeking out over new science and tech stuff), having (sometimes deep, sometimes silly) philosophical discussions, cuddled up watching a good movie, practicing yoga, or meditating.
My creative side expresses itself mostly through photography, and also through graphic design, sewing projects, and cooking.
You should also know that I am polyamorous and I'm very much in love with my partner marastara. She is polyamorous also and we date other people, usually separately but occasionally together. If you have never heard about polyamory before, or if you have any questions, feel free to message me and ask me. I'm always happy to answer questions.
I'm here to meet interesting and cool people and make connections. I'm not looking for any specific types of relationships. I'm a big fan of just meeting people and seeing what kind of connection we have and how things evolve. It could be platonic friendship, friendship with a sexual component (because let's be honest, every now and again we all want to have some fun sex with a friend we're attracted to and let it just be that), lovers, a romantic relationship, or anything else. It could start as one thing and transition to another, and then back to the first or to something completely different. That's one of the beautiful things about relationships with people. Things are constantly changing and evolving and that's a wonderful thing.
Movies- If I'm not reading in the evening I'm probably watching a movie. Some favorites include (again, no particular order) Blood Diamond, The Fountain, Avatar, Cloud Atlas, My Fair Lady, Europa Report, Point Break, Pan's Labyrinth, Sunshine, The Lego Movie, Forbidden Planet, The Prestige, Inception, The Princess Bride, Inside Out, Wall-E (And pretty much every Pixar movie.), Alien, Aliens, the original Star Wars trilogy, My Man Godfrey, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Fifth Element, The Dark Knight trilogy, Minority Report, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Pitch Black, Serenity, Unbreakable, and Ben Hur. I think that will give you an idea of my taste in movies.
TV Shows- Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Archer, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, The Walking Dead, Black Mirror, True Blood, Lost, Castle, Dexter, The IT Crowd, The Office, and Danger 5.
If you've never seen Danger 5 then you should watch the trailer, or just head straight over to Hulu and watch the first episode.
If you like this then I'm sure we'll get along great! If you don't, well, I'm sure we have other stuff in common besides a love of hilariously weird things.
Music- Pretty much anything. From Mozart to Evanescence, Pink Floyd to Deadmou5, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Regina Spektor, Queen to Leonard Cohen. What I listen to depends on my mood and what I'm doing.
Food- I love pretty much every cuisine. I especially love pizza, Mediterranean, Indian, Thai, and American Southern cooking.
1. Love (and all the people I love)
2. The sky
3. A camera
(Seven is a nicer number than six I think, so I'm going with seven.)
Oh, and please write more than a couple words if you message me. I like to have something to reply to and have an interesting conversation.
