I take veganism pretty seriously. While it's not mandatory that my partner be vegan, it is mandatory that they at least be a compassionate person. It would also help if they were intelligent and open-minded enough to explore the idea with no pressure to change. I'd like to at least have a partner that cares enough about me to understand why it's so important to me. I would never ask or pressure someone to change who they are for me, that would be a decision they we are free to make for themselves based off an educated decision. What I don't want to tolerate in my life is willful ignorance when it comes to where our food comes from and the damage industrial aggriculture does to the animals and the environment.
And while I'm on that subject; saying shit like "oh but bacon is so tasty" doesn't make you edgy, it makes you kind of a selfish dick.
Dubstep and modern hip hop are horrible too. I don't need you to explain to me how I wouldn't totally get the sound of two computers fucking if I just took enough Molly, or how talent someone is for stealing hooks from good old songs , being a sexist piece of shit, and repeating a word like ass or cake over and over.
I haven't met you yet but I spend every day thinking about you. I dream about being able to explore each others souls together. I dream of sharing my hopes and dreams with you and hearing your hopes and dreams. I can't wait for the day that you and I can put our dreams together and build a life of love and laughter. I've filled the empty whole in me that's saved for you with so many bad pieces but I've always known that I was fooling myself into thinking it was you. But when it's you, I'll know. Ill know because every fiber of my being will sing your name at the top of its lungs. I've made so many mistakes, so many bad choices, and It took me so long to learn the wisdom they had to teach. But I know I'm ready, finally ready to find you and give my heart to you. And although your not here right now I can feel you out there, your soul lost and searching just like mine. And so I wait. I wait until the day this beautiful universe brings our spirits into harmony. I wait for the day we create a love that no wrong can touch.
Is this what I am; a couple of pictures and some self-inflicted adjectives?
So I'm supposed to categorize myself in 500 words or less?
I think I have an outrageously wonderful sense of humor. There really isn't too much that needs to be taken seriously as far as day to day life goes. I guess that also makes me carefree about most things. Consequentially, I don't place much value on things most people seem to obsess over. I don't care about material things, monentary success, professional success, or whatever other ego stroking, vainglorious things most of you people seem to care about. That doesn't mean I'm poor or living in squalor either.(although I'm sure I would find happiness if forced to do so)
What it does mean is that I see and value the importance of the most important parts of life; personal happiness, friendships, family, personal growth, self education, love, making a positive impact on both the world and the lives of others, and the like. None of those things need or require money or fancy things and all of them lead to a fullfilling life. If you can't understand that, you should probably move on to the next profile and continue to buy your 200 purses made by 12 year olds in china.
I love to laugh, have been known to be cynical, am reasonably intelligent, freely speak my mind, value honesty in any form, and know exactly who I am. Anyone interested in talking to me should also know who they are because I'm not looking for a codependent, I'm looking for a partner.
Although I enjoy sex with someone I'm comfortable with, i don't care about it enough that it needs to be anywhere near the top off my priority list as far as what makes a relationship good. I'd rather have a partner that I could shared life with and be happy with that makes me happy emotionally and intellectually but never wants to have sex then one with whom I have phenomenal sex but the rest of the relationship is lacking.(holy run-on sentence batman) Obviously, I would prefer both.
I'm vegan, and if you have to ask why then google the movie earthlings.
I hate Monsanto.
The meaning to my life is love. Not just romantic love, but love of all things. I often ask myself "what would jesus do"? Not because I believe in him, but I believe in the kind of life he led. In a world ruled by greed and self-interest I'd like to try to live the kind of life where each person that comes away with my leaves with a smile. Unfortunately I am a flawed and damaged creature. I do not always live up to my mantra, but I do my best to live up to it more every day.
Im currently a dj working to make a career change.
My real passion is photography. I've been privledged enough to be featured in a couple galleries and I've recently begin trying to use my work to not only support myself, but do some good in the world. I've had some success partnering with good organizations to sell prints and donate 50 percent of the profits towards helping out the cause.
If you would like to check my work it's at;
I have this dream, my beautiful goal, of buying some good land a good distance away from a city and building a house on it. Not, just a house though, but something off the bustling grid. A house that might be non-traditional and makes as little negative impact on the enviornment as possible. The idea of Earthships kind of inspires me. If you don't know what an earthship is, you should definately look into it. But the dream doesn't just stop there. I want to learn and grow until I can eventually become as self-sufficient as possible. I'd like to grow my own food, produce my own natural medicine, and generally learn to live as much at one with the planet as possible. I want to look up at night into the sky and see the sky painted by the most beautiful palette of stars this universe has to offer. I want to be able to sleep under them.
To that end, this year I started my own garden. I dug my beds, researched my fruits and veggies, and went to planting with absolutely no prior experience whatsoever. While many of my plants are still growing I've had some triumphant successes and some horrible failures. My beans and peas are out of control and taste better than any store bought vegetable I have ever had in my life. My potatoes have grown so well I don't know what to do with them. Sadly though, my spinach bolted to flowers, and that's a tragedy, because I love spinach.
This path has lead me to start learning about permaculture, homesteading, construction, and all sorts of other ways to become self-sufficient. I've pretty much decided to start working on one skill at a time, while slowly adding more in until I finally reach a level of confidence to be able to make that final leap. Until then, my goals have been working towards getting into a position to be able to buy the land to begin with.
I have the most beautiful soul blessing my life. He is a 6 year old little boy and a huge part of my world. Amazing that someone so small and new to life can be a constant reminder about what's really important in this world. There are plenty of reasons to greet each day with a smile but he is a pretty damn good one.
I might say that they would notice that I'm probably talking about issues I personally think are important like human rights, class equality, a sustainable future, or a million other things. But we all think that if we win enough people over to our cause than that will make us right.

I have this problem where I will read just about anything that is put in front of me.
I think about why I spend the whole day seeing hawks and I wish the universe would just deliver me the message already.
I think about the world my son has to grow up in and what i can do to improve it for him. I think of ways to show him that the world is beautiful.
I think about pilgrimages, and giving away everything I own and walking the earth. I think about how I have a while before that's possible.
I think about living in a cabanna by a beautiful blue ocean and spending my days surfing, exploring, and generally in love.
I think about the type of girl that's going to think I'm worth getting old with.
I'm not interested in hip-hop loving, party all the time, can't think for yourself, no drive to better yourself, selfish people.
I only have room for beautiful people in my life.
If you think Rihanna is an artist and not a glorified peace of trash produced for public consumption you should move on.
If you don't value sex enough to have it actually mean something with me then you should move on. I'm not interested in getting laid or girls that are mad because I won't have sex on the first date.
If you don't like to learn or read or at least watch things that are educational you should move on, knowledge is delightul
