Nature is my sanctuary and my place of comfort, where I feel most at home. I grew up with a strong emphasis on morals, integrity, humility, ingenuity, and family. Many of these lessons came through play, creation, and camping. When I think of my childhood my memories are filled with swimming in ice cold rivers, exploring mountains, and making fires. I can't imagine a future or a family of my own where nature does not play a significant role.
I am and will always be a big kid, and yes there is a big difference between maturity and acting like a kid. I will never give up my sense of wonder or be bogged down by seriousness. I want to be with someone that can laugh at themselves as often as they can at me.
Intonation: Confident and Reserved
I am old fashioned in many ways, chivalry is not dead… or sexist for that matter. The kitchen is a great place to experiment and relax. I'm looking for a girl who equally enjoys a night on the town, dragging the mattress into the living room and watching movies all day, sleeping in a tent, or under the stars if you're brave enough. Someone who embraces their imperfections and may be a little quirky.
I luv takin pict$ o me$elf in da mirror n po$in wit my ride. I think it $oooo hot when $exy $hawty$ give the camera their be$t duck face. I want to be rich and famou$ and have everyone adore me. $omeday my names going to be on a building or a clothing line, I haven't decided yet. YOLO... and I don't mean the county.
Now switch around the intonations and re-read a passage or two… Does it change your opinion of who I am?
(Disclaimer: the above is written with correct intonation stated.)
Committing to something and seeing it through.
Music: Lately I've been into indie/folk type singer song writers and modern bluegrass. But, I have a pretty broad range in music. Some favorites, Dan Mills, Brothers Comatose, Dustbowl Revival, Ben Harper, and of course the classics, The Doors, Zeppelin, Paul Simon, and Hendrix. Bonus points if you know Wagon Wheel is not a "Formerly Known as Hootie" song.
Shows: The Office and Scrubs are a couple of my all time favorites.
Movies: There's Something About Mary, Anchorman, etc...
Books: What I've read most recently has been poetry from a collection titled The Outlaw Bible to American Poetry. It is collection ranging from Ginsberg to Tupac and Kaufman to Bob Dylan, it is an amazing collection. I am also currently reading The Agony and The Ecstasy: A Biographical Novel of Michelangelo (no not the ninja turtle, although that would be a good book).
