I'm from East Central Illinois, but more recently I've lived in some awesome places, such as rural Panama, Guatemala, Oakland, and now Tucson!
I recently completed a graduate degree and have an adulty job with a desk and meetings and such. Things I have been in the past include Peace Corps Volunteer, baker, marathon runner, high school dropout. I hope future me will be just as varied in his endeavors.
I love outdoor activities, intellectual pursuits and culinary endeavors. I spend an excess of time on two wheels, and the biggest line items on my budget are always food-related. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen; cooking is my primary creative outlet and my favorite way to socialize.
Grateful daily for pretty much every aspect of my life. Dating doesn't play a huge role, but I do love meeting new people.
Making people say "...and this is why we can't have nice things."
TV: I dig girls who LOL at Frasier
Music and food: I like my chocolate like I like my claviers.
- corrective lenses
- lovely people
- this nagging feeling that I need to accomplish something with my life
- strenuous physical activity
- coffee. it's my primary vice.
note: the only thing on this list that I've ever had to live without as an adult was internet access, and I did just fine.
Balancing passion with perspective
I'm essentially 99.99999% heterosexual. The other 0.00001% pines for Ewan McGregor.
that said, I was really delighted to stumble upon this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLEqH00nQac
You want to play scrabble or ride bikes with me.
You want to get drunk and watch Disney movies and sing the duets with me while my roommates all cower in their bedrooms with their pillows over their heads trying as hard as they can to block us out.
You don't take this too seriously.
If you're the type of woman who sends first messages to men, you are totally my kind of woman.
