Rational, absurd, compassionate, adventurous, single minded.
I'm going to keep this brief for the sake of the reader, if it was up to me I would write half a page. I have lived in Tulsa for most of my life to the point that my literary intellectual tendancies have had the edges rounded off with country music and cowboy hats. It has not been a conscious effort on my part, more of a slow process engendered by living amongst the locals.
I work in a behavioural health setting with teenage boys specifically, however my work sometimes broadly deals with children aged 5-17. Which is a fancy way of saying I work in a home for deranged children, the funny farm, the nuthouse. I love my job.
My hobbies and coping skills overlap and include extensive reading, working out, singing and playing with my dog. I also enjoy going to plays and movies, sampling new and interesting places to eat, and sitting around a coffee shop expounding upon any topic at all.
I'm quite literally in love with life, I want to meet someone who is as well. This world can be a playground of possibilities, if you know how to make it happen.
I'm a work in progress. I'm learning to sword fight, educating myself about anything and everything I could possibly need to know and quite a bit that I probably don't need to know. For instance; did you know that giraffes have a special sponge in their head so that when they lean over to take a drink their heads don't explode?
If you didn't don't feel bad, it's an entirely meaningless piece of trivia; That is unless you plan to be a large animal vet living in africa or working for a zoo........ I go off on tangents quite a bit.
I'm both a dark and optimistic philosopher, and that really does sum it all up. At the end of the day I'd rather know that my philosophy works than be happy. Happiness is fleeting, while figuring out what is really going on is forever. Not that I am of the particular opinion that it is good for you to know what is going on, but intellectual advancement has nothing to do with what is good for you.
Physically? That my face looks very young. Which is kind of... eh. But I try to remember when they say that, that someday I will be 60 and look like I'm still in my prime. There's always a silver lining.
As far as books go Kurt Vonnegut books, like Cats Cradle and Sirens of Titan, are pretty high up there. Some other authors include: Christopher Buckley, Larry Niven, HP Lovecraft, John Scalzi and Michael Crichton, for a start.
I like too many movies to list, and that is highly subject to mood. I'm a big fan of documentaries as well.
TV shows: Doctor Who, Ghost Whisperer, Two and a Half Men, How I met your Mother, 3rd Rock from the Sun, and a few more I can't think of right now.
Music? Lots of everything, but classic rock has to be my favorite stuff. Specific artists include Buster Poindexter, Meatloaf, They Might Be Giants, Lemon Demon, Logan Whitehurst, The Beach Boys, Queen, Adam Ant, Devo, Pain, and NRBQ, Jonathan Coulton, Eminem.
guy. If you are interested in a different sort of experience in
friendship or a relationship. Also if you have a working time machine or access to any sort of advanced alien technology, you know, just on the offchance.
If you haven't met the person you want to wake up next to every day for the rest of your life. If you don't want to miss the chance that you might.
