I'm excited to meet someone that has a strong passion for life, loves what they do and knows who they are. I'm at my best when they make me laugh and feel like a best friend. Someone that thrives on getting the most out of life and encourages me to do the same is very attractive. I want to spend my time with a person who knows how to enjoy the small things in life but has the determination to pursue their goals.
I've developed an increasing fascination for exploring more of the world and have made traveling one of my priorities in the coming years. I'll soon be taking my very first trip abroad to do a couple weeks of volunteer construction work in Africa. I made a conscious decision to dive in deep on my initial venture and was primarily motivated by the desire of using my time to do some good for others in need.
Some favorite authors: Kurt Vonnegut, Tom Robbins, Don DeLillo, Nick Hornby, Chuck Palahnuik, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, I like a lot of the classics as well.
Some current favorite music: Interpol, Neko Case, Icky Blossoms, Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire, Florence + the Machine.
Shows: I don't watch an awful lot of TV; Arrested Development is a favorite short-lived series, I watch old re-runs of Seinfeld, Nightly News, yay for staying informed!
Food: There aren't too many things I flat out don't care for, though I usually eat vegetarian. Can't seem to get enough Indian food.
Coffee - I'm sure I would technically survive without it but life just wouldn't be as good.
My guitar - everybody needs a creative outlet (or two.) It's usually within an arm's reach just in case inspiration strikes.
A notepad - I feel like I'm constantly writing something down at work, jotting down ideas, sketching or making lists. I'm a visual person. I guess it's a good thing I recycle paper.
Laughter - anyone who can make me laugh gets high marks in my book. Few things feel better than a good laugh.
Earplugs - sounds weird right? I often work in loud conditions with power tools and also attend a fair number of live shows. Definitely need to protect the hearing.
you're a spirited and outgoing individual,
we have something in common but would also really enjoy exploring each other's interests together,
you'd like to take a chance on a great guy,
you'd like to get to know each other a bit in person to see if there is some chemistry, hopefully while getting out to do something a little out of the box.
If any of that sounds appealing I look forward to hearing from you!
