Introvert, shameless, passionate, guarded, thoughtful, silly, I am and I like a lot of conflicting things, and it's the tension between those things that I find interesting.
I am in a committed, happy and open relationship. To me, it's impossible, and not desirable, to be everything to someone, or to expect everything from someone. Freedom, respect, honesty... It's worth it.
After answering some questions on guns, my personnality tab now says that I am aggressive... When I was younger I competed in 22-long rifle shooting, I loved it and there was nothing violent about it. I eventually left my club because there were too many right-wing nuts, but not all clubs are like that.
I also answered that I would like to try hunting. Well we eat animals, why not kill them in person instead of letting the food industry torture them in small cages, feed them crap and antibiotics and present them to us in nice little packages. We are so far removed from reality.
I like to meet new people and let myself be influenced by what I like in them. And I like to learn, to absorb concepts. I can never remember dates and names but I like to add fuzzy pieces of knowledge to the big messy canvas that makes up my vision of the world.
I live near the beach, but I rarely go in the summer. I am not the outdoorsy type, although I really enjoy hiking once in a while. I also enjoy yoga.
Lately I am exploring meditation and consciousness, and it's a lot more interesting and far-reaching than I used to think. Wow.
Movies: science fiction, big showy special effects, fantasy, and practically anything else, interested in Asian cinema but no clue about it. I adore Jacques Audiard's movies even though he's a pretentious prick, and I like Haneke's movies because he's a pretentious prick.
Some TV series, although lately I'm cutting down on this time-waster. Will never say no to Broad City, though.
I refuse to watch stuff that is dubbed, and I don't own a TV set.
Music: a lot of classical, lyrical, baroque, string quartets, madrigals, what have you. I love love love that.
Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald, very different but complementary in my mind.

How come movies that could be so good end up being so stupid.
In a war or any similar hairy situation, would I rise to the occasion, or choose safety and submit ?
You practice openness, honesty, dialogue, respect.
You understand what feminism, patriarchy and privileges are.
You love being sensual, intellectual and physical, not just for the sake of it, but if and when there's a spark.
