In the past year I've lived somewhat like a gypsy, wandering around the country mostly with my mind in the future, but occasionally stopping to take in sights and sounds along the way. I love the independence that a life of travel on one's own can bring, and accumulating new experiences has become sort of an addiction for me. It is certainly not something that I would change, and I am glad that I have found the courage to simply dive in, and try to make some of my dreams become reality. And also the courage to let go sometimes and let chance lead the way, or whatever you may call it.
All that being said, on occasion, I do fantasize about settling, and having an apartment and arranging it the way I want, and having a dog that I can train, and sitting around and eating chocolate, drinking wine, reading books etc. etc. And as independent as I aim to be, I admit that sharing some of those simple pleasures with someone has its appeal. But for now, I don't expect to be settling anytime soon. :D I also don't have one view of how my future will turn out which involves me finding the one person I am meant to be with. I don't want my expectations to be so limited.
Why am I here? Well, mainly to have new experiences: to meet new people, make great friendships or FWBs, and find online friends around the world. Okc has been good to me before, so I am open to possibilities. If a more romantic relationship happens as a result of our meeting, that's great!
Whoa. I wanted this to be more streamlined but my profile just keeps getting fatter... or let's say curvier. I won't hold it against you if you skim :P
I also enjoy but am not necessarily very good at making music, taking photos and drawing. The guitar is my instrument (and sometimes keyboard).
I can be good at listening to people's problems and giving advice. I may not always say something insightful, but I am willing to listen and curious to know about people. I think I am easy to talk to once you get past my initial awkward behavior. (I don't know about REALLY good, but I try.)
People often notice that I'm quiet initially. I think someone's first impression of me probably depends a lot on the setting. If its a bigger crowd I may not be noticed. If its a two person conversation, you may notice that I'm open minded or maybe curious. Idk! Tell me when you meet me!
Books: Field Guides, Into the wild, the Road, the Sun also Rises, Lord of the Flies, Catcher in the Rye, a Clockwork Orange, Desert Solitaire, and some others.
Movies: Being Jon Malkovich, Running with Scissors, Reservoir Dogs, The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, Let the Right one in, and a lot more.
Shows: Breaking bad, Mad men, The United states of Tara, Family Guy, Arrested Development.
Music: So many different kinds... Grizzly bear, Fionna Apple, Baroness, Pink floyd, The Knife, Led Zeppelin, Deer Hunter, Animal collective, Fleet foxes, Tame Impala, High on fire , Krallice, and lots of other stuff. I'm always trying to find new music. (Most recently: Ty Segall, Real Estate, and Lykke li). Kurt Vile!!!
Food: I've been almost completely vegetarian for over a year now, but I've been starting to eat fish again. I'm slowly becoming pescatarian. I enjoy eating pizza and ice cream pretty often. I'm pretty open to all types of food. I really like hummus, mushrooms, and spinach.
2. Being outside.
3. Looking at the night sky
5. Good conversations
6. Thinking about really random things to do (like bicycling with monkey masks).
Added a couple of things I think are important. I may change my mind again.
My most recent obsession is language. I have a passion for learning new languages. I've been working on my Spanish and French. I just read the first Harry Potter book in Spanish! Woohoo!
Well... lately I've been going out more often, and drinking a lot of alcohol. It changes.
Update: And now Im really far away from bars so... maybe not so much going out anymore.
I used to be kind of a prude, but I'm much more sexually open now and want to become more deviant ;)
Also, if you live somewhere distant and you are very interesting and would like to be pen pals and maybe speak another language, send me a message (I might be able to find the time to chat with you).
If you often do some outdoor activity like rock climbing, kayaking, fishing, hunting etc etc and are looking for some "activity partners", shoot me a message! (This includes straight guys if you are looking at my profile or straight girls or gay girls or whoever!)(also any other activities you think I might enjoy).
If you are sexy, and you think I am sexy, message me!(Im open to hook ups with the right people, send me a message and we can talk details if you like)
I am new to the area, and looking to expand my social circle. I enjoy making friends with people who I can learn from, and people who inspire me. So, send me a message if you think you can teach me something.
And congratulations for making it through my entire profile!
