My self-summary
I've been kicking in the Bay for a few years now, and have been pretty much loving it. I like to be outdoors: hiking, climbing, backpacking. Or just being out: bands, museums, mediocre comedy shows.

I'm in two longer-term open relationships. Beyond that I'm not looking for purely casual sex, I'm fairly flexible: friendship, dating, et cetera, et cetera.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in graduate school. What I do there has led people to describe me as the "toughest person" they know.
I’m really good at
I've been told that dancing is my secret super power (but it is also how I've gotten my two most serious injuries in life, so maybe I should rethink this).
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing that people usually notice about me is that I'm awesome. The second is that their wallet is missing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
East of Eden, Fifth Business, The Things They Carried, Snow Crash, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Ceremony, 1Q84, Giovanni's Room. Lots and lots of journal articles.

Music. Varied taste. Favorite songs: Iron and Wine's Resurrection Fern, Greg Brown's The Poet Game.

I'm a harsh critic of shows and movies. I enjoy them, I just have strong opinions.

Food. Food is amazing.
The six things I could never do without
How about the six things that make me incredibly happy: backpacking, bicycling, dancing, climbing, boogie boarding (don't knock this one, it is fantastic), cooking.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
too many things. This manifests itself in my absurdly non-linear style of conversation.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing something. As long as I am among friends, I'm pretty satisfied with wherever my evening goes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once kicked my friend in the face because he bet me I couldn't. He's 6'4", so this is one of my crowning achievements.
You should message me if
If you want.

I'm pretty happy, easy going, and low maintenance - if you consider yourself the same, that's probably a good start.
