What I’m doing with my life
I have just gone back to school for massage therapy (I was originally in psychology and sociology, but unfortunately neither of those degrees translate very well into an actual job).

I'm in the midst of trying to get myself to Norway in December for a few weeks, and to South America this summer.

Other than that, blowing up my life, or at least that's what it feels like. This month I have left a long-term relatioship, moved out of my place, changed careers, and gone back to school (in a totally unrelated field). So burning bridges, and building them?
I’m really good at
Thinking myself into corners? I'm a pretty decent drummer, a good writer, and very good at learning new things. I'm good with ideas, and often not so great with practical things. I'm a very good massage therapist, or at least I hope I am. I'm a good cook, and I make awesome cookies. I rule at scrabble.

I'm really terrible at:
Mornings, dealing with social situations, and relationships, if past experience is any indication.
The first things people usually notice about me
I honestly don't know. I'm a bit scared to find out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I'm a drummer. I listen to a bit of almost anything with interesting drums, but metal is my first true love, particularily black metal and folk/pagan metal, with a good dose of death, power and doom thrown in.

What I'm listening to at the moment: Mayhem (Hellhammer is god), Weapon, Melechesh, Immortal, Sunn o))), Tengger Calvary, Borknagar, Arcturus, Varg (the pagan metal band, not Burzum). I'm not even going to attempt the favorite bands thing, that's just what's on my playlist right now. Outside of metal, I listen to a fair bit of blues, folk, classic rock and classical. I'm not adverse to much except bad dance and rap.

Books: I'm addicted to fantasy (some favorites: R.A. Salvatore, Terry Brooks, Mercedes Lackey, Margret Weiss & Tracy Hickman when they were still doing Dragonlance, David Eddings, Raymond Feist). I also read a fair bit of assorted literary fiction. As for non-fiction I tend to be all over the place. I read a fair bit related to psychology, history, sociology, philosophy, linguistics, anthropology and science, along with whatever else catches my attention at a given moment (I'm reading something about the history of dinner at the moment-it's actually pretty interesting).

Movies & Shows: I don't watch much T.V. I love The Walking Dead, loved Game of Thrones and Pillars of the Earth, that's pretty much all I've watched on any consistant basis as of late. I have a soft spot for bad horror and fantasy movies, but my taste is pretty open, aside for a loathing for romance/romantic comedy.

Food: I can actually cook, my one and only domestic skill :p It changes by the week, but empanadas and nutella are the foods of the gods. Oh, and cheese. I love cheese.
Six things I could never do without
Black Metal
Good Conversation
The ability to be somewhere I can only see trees, not people
Curiosity about everything
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. People. The meaning of life. Why some meat is white and other meat is red (myoglobin content, which is related to the type of work the muscle does, in case you were wondering). Whether our ability to perceive reality is severely limited by narrative consciousness. How many more hours before I can leave work. What the hell I'm doing with my life. Sex. Ideas. Psychology. Philiosophy. How language effects our thoughts. Music. Anatomy (I'm a massage student, I spend more time than I want to thinking about anatomy and physiology). Food.

I'm lost in my head a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies. I go to a lot of metal shows, but aside from that I'm not really a bar person. In the summer, on my way to the cabin or going camping. In the winter, cuddled up in bed with someone, or with a book, or else hanging out with a few friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
To you? Ask me. To the interwebz? Nada.
You should message me if
You managed to read all the way to this point?

Who I think I'd really like to meet:
Someone who loves books and metal (though good music in general I could go with) as much as I do. A bit of an introvert, or at least a small group as opposed to huge group person. Someone intelligent, passionate about the things they love, interesting, curious, open, and with their own concept of honor that they try to live by. Long hair would be a great bonus, as would be tall, but those are perks, not requirements.


1) Punctuation and grammar are good things, as is spelling. Seriously. There, they're, and their. Three different words, three very different meaning. If you just don't bother with things like commas the resultant run-on sentences I read in my head like the writer is on meth. If I can't read it, I don't reply to it.

For the poor folks that have run out of punctuation, here is some:

Please feel free to take as many punctuation marks as you need :p

2) You really don't need to ask for my email in order to send my unsolicited dick pics. Just go to, and post said picture to either r/gonewild or r/spacedicks (your choice). If it makes it to the front page, I'll look, I promise.

3) Please, for the love of all that is evil, do NOT pretend to like metal if you don't actually like it. Really, I promise. There is other things we can talk about. Books are good too. Liking metal is a definite plus, but sounding like an idiot trying to fake it is...ya, just don't do it. Trust me. I do notice within the first 5 minutes.

*End rant*
The two of us
