Journalist, music nut, guitarist... I'm fairly broadminded, and I think my interests and career pursuits reflect that.
I enjoy learning about people and places I am not familiar with, and would like to find someone who has a similar interest in expanding her horizons. I tend to find that my interests and general outlook make me fairly unique, and thus I am not necessarily expecting our interests/ preferences to be a complete overlap. I am more interested in the two of us being able to accept and enjoy each other for who/ what we are.
Outside of work, music is a big part of my life. I am currently working on getting a new band project together. (Probably just for recording and maybe the occasional gig for now, given the aforementioned medical issues.) I also participate in blues jams and similar events as often as I can.
-Helping to work out compromises and/ or creative solutions to problems or disagreements.
-Noticing poor spelling or grammar, and correcting it.
Movies: This is an area of weakness, as far as cultural exposure goes. However, favorites include Space Balls, This is Spinal Tap, the original three Star Wars movies, Ghostbusters, most Monty Python stuff and Office Space.
TV: I hardly watch any, but I sometimes catch a bit of Last Week With John Oliver on YouTube.
Music: I absolutely love listening to music, playing it and/ or seeing live performances, and am constantly checking out artists and genres/ sub-genres new to me. Favorites are too numerous to list, but include Porcupine Tree, UFO, Thin Lizzy, the Dictators, lots of obscure old metal, various jazz and blues stuff, Celtic music, and I've loved Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" since I was a little kid. Oh, and I think many of us can agree: never trust anyone who hates Queen.
Stuff I've been listening to lately: the new Chelsea Wolfe, In Solitude, Steven Wilson, Opeth and anything involving Anneke van Giersbergen. Local favorites include Protean Collective and Bent Knee.
Food: Lots, but especially Italian, Indian cuisine, Mexican and Chinese.
-A well-functioning mind
-A guitar (or three!)
-People who aren't shallow, judgmental ignoramuses
(I don't like having a total of six things to pick. I feel like it will somehow either end up revealing too much about me, or not enough of any substance.)
-anything you have read above appeals to you.
-you like traveling, exploring, going to concerts, and generally having fun while expanding your horizons.
-you can appreciate someone who is unique or different from the norm for who they are, and would like the same in return.
Non-smokers strongly preferred, by the way.
