I'd love to be a modern Renaissance Man. While I'm pursuing this dream, I tend to be a rather laid-back & witty conversationalist with a penchant for various good music & good food.
My ideal place to live would be where the front door opens into a city and the back door leads to wilderness and mountains, which is probably why I enjoy Pittsburgh so much.
I suppose I work during the day, but that's not particularly exciting. (But if you're screening me for grown-up qualities, I do have a 9-5 with a 401k, etc.) My dream job is to open my own business, preferably one I can run remotely, allowing me to travel the world. I did just accept a new job in Pittsburgh, so I guess I'll be here for at least a little while...
Next countries on travel list: New Zealand Australia.
I also have a goal to stand on every continent before I turn 30. 5/7 so far. It will be 6 by the end of the year.
Being a carnivore
Discovering odd music genres
I go through periods where I read every day and others where I hardly touch a book. I just finished A Song of Fire, and I like similar good fantasy. I've been in the middle of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance for about 4 years. I also read the occasional pop thriller and finance-related non-fiction.
Currently Reading: The Charisma Myth
I love seeing films in theaters, and I enjoy myself despite being highly critical of some movies. I enjoy the typical guy-movie intelligent thrillers and action stuff, but I like to see some limited release movies every now and then. Also, as far as I'm concerned, there were only 3 Star Wars movies, 3 Indiana Jones movies, and 1 Jurassic Park.
Last Watched: Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Netflix binge watching is what I do now. Was watching House of Cards and Game of Thrones (political intrigue whoa!). Breaking Bad, White Collar, Archer, and Walking Dead have also held my interest.
Currently Watching: Game of Thrones !
I have eclectic tastes but listen to a lot of celtic rock, weird industrial stuff, electronica, European heavy metal, and whatever dumb pop the kids are listening to (I hate myself for it, but I love mindless summer anthems). I also love musicals and anything you can dance to.
Current Favorite Band: Bellowhead
I eat a loosely paleo diet (low carb; lots of meat and veggies), and I'm a decent cook with a recipe in front of me.
Currently Eating: At Meat & Potatoes downtown as often as possible. Best. Brunch. Ever.
2. Live music, preferably an Irish band at a pub or a metal show at some dive.
3. My motorcycle: Honda Nighthawk, but a Ducati would be nice when I get money.
4. Intelligent conversation. I'm known to debate a point just because it's fun. I promise that it's intelligent debate.
5. Good beer. Rochefort #6 is especially nice.
This isn't a biology question. If you're answering with things like "food" and "water," you may be missing the point....
Why is almost every girl on OkCupid a vegetarian? It's not that I have a problem with your eating choices, but I like to cook, and I like to cook for people.
However, I think I would rather fight a bear than do many other things. Imagine the awesome stories you could tell!
- If you want to check out new restaurants.
- If you love trying new things, including but not limited to new foods, new music, and various sundry new adventures.
- If you look awesome in a leather jacket.
- If you're a manic-pixie-dream-girl.
It would also help if you like beards.
