Overall, however, I'm really craving a genuine engaging conversation with positive open-minded people.
Reevaluating my life's direction. I've been working in the non-profit and international public sectors for over 5 years now, and although my values are often completely aligned with many a NPO mission statement, I CANNOT STAND TO GRIND BEHIND A DESK 8 - 10 HOURS A DAY!
Thus ... I've recently become committed towards developing a plan to set many of my projects-of-passion into motion.
Meanwhile, I bartend and run a dog boarding service out of my home.
My extraordinarily large ears.
My extreme height.
Nutshelled: I'm a tall dude. Thankfully, however, I enjoy my morning runs, my push-ups, and maintaining a fit bod, so the consensus overall is that I'm put together fairly well.
Also, my eyes are pretty and green. They are in good shape as well, since I use them quite frequently.
Book: Sex Without Guilt in the Twenty-First Century, by Dr. Albert Ellis
Movie: Hurlyburly (1998) Adapted from David Rabe's well known play. Starring Sean Penn, Kevin Spacey, and Chazz Palminteri
Show: The Young Turks (daily web-news show) and ugh .... I hate to admit it because I typically loathe 99.8% of all contemporary TV programming, but I have rarely missed an episode of The Walking Dead. What can I say, I'm a zombie-phile.
Music: Any blues, jazz, or hip-hop maestro offering a spine-tingling bone-deep hook and/or honest lyrics: Atmosphere, Zion I, Little Dragon, Nujabes, The White Stripes, The Black Keys, Everlast, DJ Babu, oh I could go on for quite some time...
2) Reddit -- typical I know, but I'm addicted. As Aaron Bruno of AWOLNATION was once recorded as saying, "I blame it on my ADD baby".
3) Genuine friendships and conversation
4) Good sex (honestly, anyone who doesn't allude to this, in some fashion, should barely be considered human)
5) Music, books, and art (I cheated a bit here, I realize this)
6) The ability to travel
I suppose I that am often attempting to scour territories of the Bay that are previously untouched by me -- a new dive bar found over here, a new route to ride my motorcycle discovered over there ... I like to exercise my hard-wired sense of adventure whenever my responsibilities cut me some slack.
You understand what an open-relationship is, and are cool with it. She's sweet, you'd like her.
