My self-summary
I love to be outdoors and climb trees and do handstands on boulders, but also really enjoy being indoors watching live jazz and drinking cocktails, reading at a cafe, or hanging out with friends. I love discussing the world and the different ways to view it. Sometimes I philosophize to the point of utterly confusing myself. I'm the type of person to look up a word I don't know the meaning of. I like singing with friends in the car. I absolutely love dogs.

I sat down and tried to think of the 5 most important things that I strive for in a relationship, and these were the result:
-Communicating openly and honestly as to how we feel about one another/our relationship.
-Uplifting one another and embracing each other’s virtues and vices.
-Enhancing my partner’s life without imposing my own lifestyle on them.
-Seeking out and exploring new life experiences together.
-Challenging each other in positive ways to become better individuals inside and outside of the relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Living the city life, which is pretty cool, but sometimes I miss the mountains. I'm a Project Engineer for a SF based general contractor, currently overseeing construction of a high rise in the Tenderloin that will be a dining hall for the homeless on the bottom and affordable senior housing up top.

Like every twenty something, I'd like to think I have a clue what I'm doing with my life, but am constantly realizing I am utterly clueless... which is daunting and exciting at the same time!
I’m really good at
Getting distracted while reading.
Hacky sack.
Philosophizing about crazy stuff... like how the atoms that make up a flower could literally be the same atoms that made up my dead ancestors, or even myself...
The first things people usually notice about me
The pieces of metal stabbed through my lip.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The six items above.

What i should think about, why i should think about it, and what the implications are of my thinking about it.

How I want to define "success" for myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
Inside, relaxing after the work week, or at a bar with friends commiserating about the work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still wear T-shirts that I've owned since 1997.
You should message me if
You think we would get along well.

You like wandering around cities looking for a place to eat that exudes the perfect mix of hipster and hippie.
The two of us
