I do currently live on South Whidbey Island, which is about 30 minutes and a fifteen minutes ferry from downtown Seattle. I do not mind driving into the city at all, so don't let that dissuade you.
Music: I may as well be up front saying I live and breathe music. It is more or less constantly running through my head, whether it's something I'm writing or was listening to. I will list a few favorites though: Ben Folds, Goat Rodeo, Snarky Puppy, Mahler, Steve Reich, Owen Pallet.
Shows: I haven't made a lot of time for tv lately; but my favorite shows include: Shield, The Newsroom, Mozart in the jungle, The League, and Smash.
Movies: My favorite movies are Pitch Perfect, Tangled, and Secondhand Lions. I really like Romantic Comedies, Ancient Chinese War movies, and really anything that isn't scary or overly gory that I can cuddle with you and watch.
Books: I read nearly constantly, as in usually a book a week.
My main genre is sci-fi fantasy, but I recently have been reading nonfiction mostly about habits and psychology. My favorite authors are: William Gibson, Patrick Rothfuss, Michael J. Sullivan, and Scott Lynch.
My newest favorites are:
The Power Of Habit
The Tower Lord
How to accept myself as well as others, and deal how to deal with my emotions in a productive way.
How create more productive habits.
What program could I teach to benefit the youth in my community.
If you are not a fan of romance, you might want to find someone else. I will probably take you on obnoxiously cute dates, make you sweet gifts with my hands, and write you music pretending I belong in Big Fish. Just warning you, I'm awesome.
Thank you for taking the time to read to the bottom. This whole trying to find someone compatible, getting the timing right, and dealing with your own life thing is nonsense. I wish you luck if I'm not your style.
