Nursing school has however other plans for me and my free time has tragically been sucked up by it which has effectively shrunk my social network to a few old friends.
Right now I'd mainly like to make new friends especially since I no longer feel that I will be long for california living anymore.
I love travel and gaming of all types. Board games are my favorite but video games have been some of the most transformative for me.
Edit: This is a new strategy to meeting people. A long time ago I embodied the Bible verse, that God does no look at the outward appearance but at the heart. I have long put on an alternative appearance to parry down the people willing to engage me to the open minded people I prefer to find myself in the company of. In keeping with that sentiment I want to be more candid than most find prudent in an effort to evoke a comparable honesty and sincerity with those that feel I'm a person worth meeting.
I'm a divorcee who had a short lived marriage during my enlistment. This forced me to face some inner demons because my ex's infidelity revealed that my mommy issues were from repressed knowledge of my mom's betrayal of my father. I have reconciled my animosity towards my conservative religious upbringing with the help of psychedelics and found a renewed ambition to aspire for achievements that most people would try to convince me are unrealistic. I'm someone who does not get along well with basic bitches of whatever gender. I do not condescend people with more humble goals in life because I have always had the humility to recognize that at many points I wanted little more to be able to just find happiness.
I'm a social justice warrior and I'm frequently off putting to those that find comfort in complacency. I'm someone who believe in conspiracy facts because in an age of alternative facts, you no longer need to peddle in theories.
I fall in love quick and hard and usually for a bit too long as well but I don't want to waste a day of my life not being passionate about anything I'm doing.
I like to garden and have gotten good at growing everything from flowers, fruits and veggies, to cacti and tricky bitches like orchids.
I am a rehabilitating Christian, who like Ghandi, has much love for Jesus and far less for most Christians. I find a general principle seems to be that in any faith only 10-20% are invested in the belief as a way of life. I was one of those and once I got out into the world I realized how desperately the bubble I was raised in sought to control me. I have since practiced the pagan tradition and hope to practice other prominent practices.
Regardless of my greater ambitions spirituality and its search for inner truth is a core value of mine. I do a lot of those things that scientific atheists find to be, shall we say, illogical. I let my spirit guide me but I use logic to keep myself grounded in this supposed reality.
I have really weird hiccups, and sneezes
movies this is a very limited list but long enough to grasp the wide variety i enjoy.
Star wars, in fact I would almost go so far as to say that if your not a star wars fan don't write me. Maybe. But I also love a lot of other types of movies from meet joe black to planes, trains, and automobiles, to Coffy, to Se7en and a beautiful mind and shawshank redemption. the land before time, Aladin, rushmore, sin city, 80's action movies, Amelie, Mary and Max, Juno, the big lebowski, natural born killers, v for vendetta, anything Tarantino, Wachowski, Leone, or Miyazaki, planet terror, SLC Punk, Peter No Tail, (in fact I might almost marry someone on the spot if they could readily quote that movie)
Shows Cowboy Bebop!*** Arrested Development, Black Jesus, South Park
With music I enjoy a little bit of most genres except country. As with star wars, country is almost a deal breaker. AFI, gaslight anthem radiohead, lady gaga del tha funkee homosapien, 2Pac, biggie, wu tang, the beatles, pink floyd, led zeppelin, queen, placebo, nirvana, the gorillaz, neutral milk hotel, the sounds, the yeah yeah yeahs, bob dylan, bob marley, regina spektor, brand new, modest mouse, the white stripes and paul simon. This list is far from all inclusive but it's fairly representative of my core tastes
Food I'm a huge fat kid. I temper it so that I don't let it get to my health but I have that kind of approach that if you can't enjoy your food and all your sort of missing out on life. I am not a real fantastic cook but i've lived on my own long enough to know how to make at least a weeks worth of food without having to repeat a meal or be eating out of the microwave. I was raised on italian and mexican food mixed with american classics like burgers, pot pie and fried chicken but have grown a taste bud for foods of almost all cultures. Middle Eastern/ Turkish food, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, British, German cuisine are favorites. Sopapillas remain one of my favorite treats, partly because so few places serve them.
Faithfulness - whether that be from my lover, a pet, family, good friends, someone who I know can be a source of comfort in tough times
A Muse - I believe your spirit withers when not fed and for me that is someone or something inspiring my creativity. We were born with a mind that senses a more complex palate of emotions then possibly any other living thing and I try to exercise that capability of being in awe
A Goal - something that can drive me to accomplish new things and be focused on the end game without losing track of where I am and the current situation.
Variety - I always will want to try something new, whether that's a food, drink, activity, job, I want to be able to look back on my life and identify at least a few significant things that were unique in my life each year.
I know this is only 5 but I can't think of a sixth at the moment and given how important to me the other things are I don't want to diminuitize that by just putting something silly like water.
