I am a feminist. Ask me about it. I enjoy a good discussion about such things!
I'm working on changing the kind of work I do. Primitive skills and the ability to live in the wilderness is important to me. I'm steadily gaining experience to be a wilderness/outdoor/adventure instructor.
I think of myself as generally kind and compassionate, but I have discovered that some people should be avoided sometimes. Nonetheless, I think I've come to a point where I can accept the idiosyncracies of most people and let them be who they are without getting my knickers in a twist. I've been told I am patient and tolerant, possibly to a fault. I'm a realistic optimist, meaning that I see reality, and it seems to me that most things I would like to accomplish are possible. (Sometimes I get down, though, just like everybody else.)
I enjoy hanging out with friends, family, complete strangers, recent acquaintances, and, one might hope, you.
I eat green things, red things, yellow, purple, and orange things. I do not eat anything with a face. (No, that does not include Mr. Potatohead. Everyone knows the face can be removed first.
Cycling: I've raced competitively in both sanctioned and alley cat races.
Running: I used to be fast, but a knee injury, etc. etc. I still like to run and would love to run with you (mostly in the same place at the same time, but not necessarily at the same speed).
Pojar & Mackinnon's book on plants of the Pacific Northwest, The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Stephen Chbosky), A Short History of Nearly Everything (Bill Bryson), The Princess Bride (William Goldman), The Old Man and the Sea (Ernest Hemingway), The Will to Change (bell hooks), Facing Mount Kenya (Jomo Kenyatta), and others.
Too many to mention.
Television (i.e., the internet):
(I don't really watch much television, and I don't even own a t.v.)
Downton Abbey, Hell on Wheels, Copper, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Elementary, . . .
There's a new show based on the Outlander series of novels. If you watch it, say hello! I would certainly be up for watching it together.
Too many to mention. I like a wide range of things depending on my mood.
Thai, Indian, ETHIOPIAN!!!
Plants and the magic of chlorophyll!
I love everyone and everything! . . . However, I do reserve the right to make discerning judgments about this world and how I would like to participate in it.
Really, it all depends, but hopefully there is something fun to do.
. . . you think I'm something like cute.
. . . you enjoy hiking, camping, cycling, and getting dirty.
Do you have tips for how to survive the OSU-pocalypse? Or the best vegetarian buffet in town?
And I only date women between the ages of 22.425 and 56 1/3. I like a woman who can deadlift her body weight in cantaloupes and has a vocal range spanning 5 if not 6 octaves. But, you know, if you're inclined, please inquire at your leisure.
