I love working on puzzles, going on hikes, exploring museums, annoying my cats, writing lists, and climbing trees. I used to go urban exploring a fair bit, but got sick of explaining 'trespassing charges' on job applications.
I attempt for the most part to be a decent, upstanding person, but despite this my car is a goddam mess inside. I almost always make the bed in the morning. I chase/follow stray dogs and cats to try and make friends with them.
STL born and raised. Went to Webster University for photography, and Washington University for Art Education. Currently trying to reteach myself piano and get better at rock-climbing.
Other hobby stuffs working in my garden, taking hikes, rock-climbing, exploring abandoned buildings, reading, beer, and nachos. Beyond all that, I'd like to travel, and possibly teach abroad. And meet a swell girl that wants to go on adventures with me.
Not so good at: Cooking Lentils, Texting, Diving off the High-Dive, Dealing with Bureaucracy, Teaching to NCLB (eat a million dicks G.W.)

Movies - to avoid another massive block of text, I'll summarize by saying I like kung-fu and action movies, comedies, independent films and documentaries.
TV Shows - Eh...don't really watch TV, but on Netflix I'll watch The Walking Dead, Arrested Development, and the Office.
But I do enjoy a spicy bloody mary with breakfast. And my cat Simon. He is radical.
You want to go on a hike.
You want to go urban exploring.
Or if you want to.
