I like to try new things. Most anything at least once.
I firmly believe that life is not about taking shelter from the storm, it's about learning to meet it head on and enjoying the sheer clash of power and exhilaration of the resulting dance of control and surrender.
I try to live my life based on the why not of things, rather than the why. I don't want to look back on my life later and see it littered with all the things I wish I had done, the things I wish I'd taken the chance on, things I wish I'd risked. You might say it's one of my biggest fears, that I will look back and regret. I do not tend to regret my mistakes, though there are a couple things, as with everyone that I do, it is not -those- regrets I fear happening. It's the possibility that I will miss out on exciting and wonderful life experiences because I was afraid to take the risk and go for what I want.
I am free-spirited, adventurous, and creative.
I really need to get a board-gaming group set up, too, miss playing Catan,Pandemic, Ghost Stories and Resistance. Other games, too.
I worked at the Texas Renaissance Festival in 2009, which was an absolutely amazing experience. I would really like to work faire again at some point.
I like to talk to people. I talk a lot. Conversation topics ranging from completely random thoughts to just things I've been thinking about. I like talking to people who listen AND contribute to the conversation. I don't talk to hear myself speak, I talk to share ideas and thoughts and get other people's opinions and so forth. I love debating about topics I'm passionate about.
Picking up bits and pieces of other languages.
Talking too much.
Coming up with boredom curing endeavors.

Not nessecarily in that order
I'm polyamorous but not really into most poly relationship setups that get offered here. What I mean by this, is that I'm not interested in being anyone's third and I'm not really interested in random threesomes. I'm currently looking for a primary.
I am completely unashamed of my love of Disney movies.
Anything else you want to know message me and ask. There's a high likelihood I'll tell you as I don't give a damn who knows what about who I am, what I've done. etc.
I am, if you'll pardon the cliche, an open book.
Also if you're adventurous, interesting, intelligent, or otherwise fun to talk to.
As an aside: if you message me something that indicates an inability to type out your words (u, ur, 2 and so forth) I -will- ignore you. While I don't expect perfection therein, if you can't utilize proper spelling and grammar to some extent, don't talk to me, because it's a waste of your time, not to mention mine.
As a second aside: If you're going to be one of those people who send me a message with no substance, with a gist of 'hey baby let's fuck', do NOT try to reference 50 Shades of Grey. Yes, I list BDSM as an interest of mine. 50SoG has -nothing- to do with the BDSM lifestyle and everything to do with glorifying domestic abuse. It's neither romantic, hot, nor interesting, and you will kill -any- chance you ever had of ever getting a response, unless your message riles me up enough to yell at you. It is -ridiculous- that this is a common enough message that I feel like I have to make a note about it.
Aside number three: Stop reading the above paragraph and then asking me, apropos of nothing, to dominate you. My profile has it written in several places, but for clarity: I'm not a Dominant.
