I dance to the beat of my own drum... And I plan to continue the pattern until my dying day.
I am always honest to those I love... to the point where I offend, some would even call it brutal... I am so over apologizing for it. Those who truly love me, love me for it.
That makes me sound rude; that is not the case. I am very much a lady when the occasion calls for it (despite okcupid saying I'm "worse mannered", which is total crap). People would even call me charming; and I'm definitely a flirt.
I love life; each day is a gift which I plan to appreciate to the fullest.
I can argue, but I only bust that out for things I'm really passionate about.
I can also organize... I tag, file and highlight like a pro.
And, probably my naturally curly brown hair. It's very much a part of style.
Books - Wicked, Fool on the Hill, LOTR, Wonderful Wizard of Oz, To Kill a Mockingbird, Animal Farm, Secret History, Of Mice and Men, One Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest... Totally geeking out on Game of Thrones right now.
Movies - Anything Quentin Tarantino, Alfred Hitchcock (Rear Window is my all time favorite), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Sandlot, Big Fish, Neverending Story, Godfather, Breakfast Club, Wall-E and Hanna.
Shows - Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Shameless and How to Get Away with Murder.
Music - I frequent live local music. I like a lot of different genres, it really depends on my mood. The last few albums I've enjoyed are Florence + the Machine, Lungs; OKGO, Hungry Ghosts; Broken Bells, After the Disco; Parov Stelar, Paris Swing Box; the Beatles, Abbey Road.
Food - I love to cook. I was a vegetarian for years. I eat nearly everything now, but I try to buy local and avoid overly processed foods. I am adventurous and willing to try nearly everything once.
How do I pay off these damn student loans? What is consciousness? Is there an after? Are stars just holes poked through a giant sheet? Do my dogs understand my words or is it the inflection of my voice and body language? Is the red you see the same red I see? How would my off the grid property look if I could afford/design it right now? (I actually keep a notebook of 'hobbit hole ideas' for all that stuff.) Why do the people in power suck so much? And why aren't we (people not in power) doing anything about it? Where's the outrage? Why do people pacify themselves with crap TV and crap internet?
The list goes on and on.
Also, I love to compare answers to the questions. Sometimes after scrolling through a potential matches answers I just have to stop and send a message. I just MUST talk to this person. If you feel this way, please, send me a message :)
However, if you send me a message and we differ on (what I consider) some key issues, I will call you out on it. I can't do small talk if there are giant red flags waving in my face. Some people call me rude (or other expletives), but I just can't help but wonder why a Jesus freak or racist or misogynist would want to have a relationship with me.
