"Do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure."
ENFP for those interested in all that Meyers Briggs nonsense.
I moved up here to study writing and visual arts at Evergreen from a tiny town in Northern California, the denizens of which are a mix of old hippies, loggers, and ranchers who's offspring come together and form a sort of hybrid, affectionately known as "rippies," redneck hippies, posessing the best qualities of both. Add some sophistication and a taste for laughter, travel, adventure, and the fine things in life and you have me. I fell in love with the stunning natural beauty of this area, the laid back lifestyle, learned to appreciate the rain, and found my home in the Pacific Northwest. I was raised off the grid on an organic farm and am passionate about healthy community, healthy food, proper nutrition, and sustainable food systems. Monsanto Corporation is the very embodiment of evil and is working toward a real life zombie apocalypse. I love the local food systems Olympia has to offer and I must say that I'm a pretty good cook, resourceful and creative in the kitchen and can usually whip up something tasty and healthy with whatever I happen to have on hand. I think sharing a good, hearty belly laugh or a fit of uncontrollable giggles with close friends is one of the greatest feelings in the world. That, and experiencing a new and amazing place for the first time.
Movies: Okay, my movie tastes are much too varied to narrow down but I've recently been on a documentary kick.
Television: Don't have it but I Netflix series that I like and watch sports at the bar. Anthony Bourdaine is my hero and The Wire was the best show anyone has created. Having read the books, I think HBO is doing a fantastic job with A Game Of Thrones. I just cracked out to Season two of The Walking Dead until like 3:00 a.m. Way better than season one. That zombie drama really sucks you in.
Music: Real country, not the horrible pop crap; Waylon, Cash, Willie, Johnny Paycheck, Merle Haggard, George Jones, David Allan Coe, Hank Williams Sr., Hank lll.
"On the highway to nowhere that runs through my mind A yellow line stretches out into the night Broken in places, it's my guiding light So I'm writing that freedom a line at a time"
Waylon Jennings speaks to my very soul.
Reggae; conscious roots and dancehall.
Bluegrass, folk, punk, metal, old hippie rock.
Food: I usually eat a simple diet of whole grains, meat, and veggies crafted in delicious ways at home but one of my favorite things is to go out to a good restaurant. Sushi and pretty much any Asian cuisine tops my list of cultural cuisine along with Mediterranean, Indian, and some good, quality Mexican. La Tarasca in Centralia is bomb.
How hipsters steal everything good and make it hipster. Flannel, whiskey, bicycles, kale, beards, bacon, brunch...etc. How fucked up the American food industry and food systems are and how the general population are happily scarfing down the poisons provided to them and perpetuating their own demise.
I think it's funny that dudes on here get all butt hurt when women don't return their messages. It's like, man, how do you handle rejection in real life? So you can at least rest assured that if I message you and you're not feeling it (for whatever unfathomable reason) I'm going to just leave it at that and not accuse you of being a "stuck up bitch" or anything of that nature. (That's not to say I'm encouraging anyone to not reply to my messages or anything. 😜 I don't send them desperately or compulsively so if I do it's because I'm genuinely intrigued.)
