I also want to make sure to mention that I'm a busy graduate school student and am looking for a relationship, not flings. I'm at the point in my life where I'm focused on my career and know well who I am. If you're looking for the young adulthood going out and partying, experimenting with your identity, and doing that whole going on dates but not dating thing, that's awesome but that isn't me. Still down for drinks but I'd rather spend time focusing on the person than an experience (aka lets do boring stuff and have a relationship).
Ideal day date: Go to a protest/assist the Border Angels, grab some Indian food, and go to a comedy show.
Relating with people. I spent the last few years working with some of the most difficult kids in the state where I had to relate to a variety of backgrounds, demographics, and diagnoses. Now I intern at a drug rehab facility tailored towards the LGBTQIA community doing individual therapy, group therapy, and developing new curriculums for groups.
Advocating. Life is too short to allow unnecessary negatives into life. My workplace didn't have the best interest of staff or clients in mind so I contacted a union and spent the next year working towards staff rights. Who knew changing the way a 160+ year old agency would come with some hiccups?
Movies: White Oleander, Boondock Saints, Poolboy 2, Casino Royale, 127 Hours, 28 Days Later, Serenity, Very Bad Things, Dogma, the Descent, Layer Cake, Pineapple Express, Identity. The funnies, the scaries, and the British are good generalizations for my taste in movies.
Shows: Coupling, Daredevil, the Walking Dead, United States of Tara, Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Spartacus, Scrubs, the Daily Show. I miss Craig Ferguson in the Late Late Show.
Music: I worked at a record store for 5 years so this is long and varied. Unexpect, Meg Myers, Alice in Chains, Alestorm, Fiona Apple, Man... or Astroman?, Pink Floyd, Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot, Timbaland, Katatonia, Dargaard, Loreena McKennitt, Draconian, Garbage, My Dying Bride, Cryptopsy, Dan the Automater, Portishead, Morphine, Massive Attack, I can go on for a while. Melody, fast rhythms, and/or diminished scales get a thumbs up from me, generally.
Food: Indian, Thai, Mexican are all staples in my diet, probably due to being pescatarian, just no bloody onions.
Comedians (hell yes they belong here): George Carlin, Dennis Leary, Jon Stewart, Brian Posehn, Doug Stanhope, and Jim Gaffigan.
