I also get paid to do my hobby. That is as awesome as it sounds.
I like to read. I like to run around. It has been almost two years since my last game of tag.
I just recently got through a couple year period of working 60 hours a week. Now I don't have to work as much anymore (goals accomplished) and I am working hard at enjoying life. Baloo is my role model.
Pointing out that the Star Wars galaxy is made of slavery and Obi-Wan Kenobi is evil (seriously, he'll convince you to try to kill your own father, spoiler alert?).
I'm really good at getting up after being knocked down.
Prog rock, classic rock, metal, prog metal, classic metal, classic prog metal rock, motown, Lamb of God, Childish Gambino, Mastodon, David Bowie, Sabbath, The Bad Plus, Tool (they are a great live show), Das Racist, all sorts of other music.
I am a huge geek, but people who meet me in life don't seem to suspect until I start talking about the probable effect on the murder rate that Daredevil would cause in Hell's Kitchen or the economic implications of colonialism as it relates to Star Trek. I take pride in it.
Regarding marriage and kids, I'm not going to say yes or no. I feel that those are questions that have to be answered in collaboration with one's partner. I'm open to marriage but I am also not on a mission to get married or bust; a partner would have to be a part of that equation and I would be fine with being with someone who never wanted to marry. I like kids but I'm not on a mission to reproduce. I would have to be in a strong relationship with someone who wanted children. I've been perfectly happy in a relationship with someone who didn't want children as well. I guess I'm saying I'm open to ladies of diverse lifestyle preferences; I have to get to know them first anyway.
I don't have pre-conceived notions about what I want my life to be in the future; it never turns out that way anyway. I want to live it and have no regrets. Just some things I've learned about myself.
If you would say yes if I asked you to dance.
I don't want to force anyone to conform to my preconceptions. I'm not looking for someone to fit into some kind of pre-scripted fantasy life. I don't want to meet someone who is exactly like me and shares every single one of my preferences, though shared interests are a lot of fun.
