I'm not in the habit of putting myself or others into boxes, but since it seems that I must.
Briefly; I consider myself to be an open minded person, looking to try new things and meet new people and see what happens.
What else? I am perhaps more of a geek than I like to admit to my non-geek friends, and at the same time less of a geek that I like to admit to my geeky friends.
I spent a good 9 months in South America a few years back, and I am trying to bring as much of my experiences into how I am living now. Things like meditating each morning, not trying to plan my future and seizing as many opportunities as possible.
I also recently went on a 10 day silent meditation retreat (Vipassana - for those who know it) which really helped me shift the way I think about the world, in an amazing way. Lots of getting rid of self-criticism, expunging past troubles etc. I'm mega keen to chat about it to anyone who is interested.
p.s. If you are interested in talking or finding something out about me or anything along those lines then Just Ask! I dont bite and I will honestly answer 99% of questions put to me
I've just come back from 4 months volunteering in the Philippines, construction/carpentry based stuff for a disaster relief NGO. Good times all round.
My rugged good looks?
Movies; I'm pretty open for whatever, but I do have a penchant for artsy type films or mega trash (we have a thing called Mediocre Movie Mondays at my place), Just one of the many dualities in my personality :P
Music; my general rule is styles (not necessarily artists) that came before I was born (thus no metal and the likes).
I love a bit of old folk and funk (Earth wind and fire,Dylan, Joplin, Ben Harper and co.), Right now into Old Crow Medicine show and Cat Sevens/Yusuf Islam, Punch Brothers, the Decembrists and Nickle Creek (since taking up the mandolin).... more to come :P
That being said I've plugged my radio back in and I'm loving the chance to hear some new stuff
Passion for life
Something to put my ideas down on
If emotion is possible from solipsism and wanky shit like that.
Annoying paradigms that we live in and how to break out of them.
Life, self reflecting (perhaps too much), politics, philosophy, places I want to go in the world... I could go on.
That being said, message me if you are interested simple as that :)
p.s I am inclined to want to actually meet you one day, so If you are just looking to chat online that is cool but perhaps we are looking for different things.
p.p.s I am much more likely to respond if you add a 'pop question', which is a random question for me to answer. It can be about anything, I promise to answer honestly :P
