My self-summary
I am looking for someone with passion for life and admiration for the arts, culture, food, travel, the environment and animals. I love all of these things and I want to find someone to share my passions with.

I consider myself to be a very caring, open-minded individual. I try to stay positive and enjoy the great things that life has to offer. My personal motto is, "You can't have the good without the bad." If there was no "bad," then there would be nothing to give the "good" context or perspective. I try to maintain this ideology even in my personal, darkest moments. It has helped me and I believe that it has helped my friends in their darkest times as well.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved back home to be with my family, focus on my self and plan for the future. I'm a freelance musician and teacher, and I am taking life one day at a time. Here is me attempting to be a walking success story!

Here is more:
I've been a permanent resident of Southern Maryland (SoMD) my entire life, and I'm definitely ready for the next chapter to begin. Whether thats moving to a big city, applying for graduate study or taking a big left turn and traveling the world, I am ready for what comes my way.
I've been trying to "make a living" for myself in SoMD this past year, and as a classical musician it is a rough life. So right now I am definitely on the cusp of something new. I've been feeling it for a while, and now I think I can almost taste it...
I’m really good at
I guess people would say that I am a good musician/pianist. I've definitely heard people say that. Do I believe them? Sometimes (still fighting the inner demons).
I like to think that I'm good at being a "mom/dad." My anecdote for this would be that I both enjoy and appreciate being the "late-night" driver for friends and family when we turn the radio off and everyone falls asleep. I find it oddly calming and it makes me feel protective and glad that people feel comfortable enough to sleep while I'm driving. Is that weird? I don't know.
I'm also (too) good at listening. Just ask my mom! Or really anyone who knows me.
Also when I'm actually super motivated, I am good at getting shit done. Like actually done. Not part-way and not half-assed.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love my books to be mystery and suspense, my television to be comedy and my movies to be dramas and/or foreign films. Is that weird? I don't know. Maybe someday i'll make a list of what I DO like and maybe it'll make sense. Maybe. Probably not.

As a musician (yes I'm going there) it's probably the hardest thing in the world for me to talk about my favorite music. The best thing is to just meet/talk to me and we can cover that ground when we get to it. Seriously. It's like a complicated laundry list. You will definitely be listening to shit you've never heard of after interacting with me. And then you may or may not hate me afterwords.

FOOD! I love it. But I am a dedicated vegan (I know, what an asshole), so my food is typically veggie/fruit and legume heavy. It's my dealio. BUT, I love to cook and I do so very often. So if you're adventurous and open-minded, I would love to cook for you. I can be pretty convincing!
The six things I could never do without
I've edited this section so many times because I can't take it seriously. Am I supposed to be vain or pretentious? I don't know what the middle ground is.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My place in this world. I am a college graduate with too much time to think...
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with friends or staying in by myself on my computer until the wee hours of the morn.
You should message me if
You would like to find out more about me. There's no point to this if we never message each other or respond to one another. Duh!

But also, I am looking for a partner. And by that, I mean that I am looking for someone who is willing and open to be everything that a partner/SO/BF/whatever should and can be. I need and want someone who is supportive, caring, dedicated, level-headed and capable. If you don't know how to take care of yourself, please take the time to mature and come back (rude?). I know people aren't perfect, but I want my rock. I think I need that. Also humor and intelligence is a major plus.
