People tell me I'm different then most. I care little about what a person does or doesn't have whether its education, money, possessions...I pay attention to the character of the people I meet. I have close friends who range in age from 20 to 86 and I'm constantly amazed at what I learn from all of them.
I try to spend as much time outdoors as possible, especially at the coast. I'm more in to the arts then sports, but you can't live in NC without becoming a college basketball fan. I like spending time with interesting people who can teach me something.
Like many people say, I find it difficult to describe myself. Rather then explaining to people who I think I am, I'd prefer they make their own conclusions.
if you've gotten to this sentence I will also add, I'm the least photogenic person out there. I'm so uncomfortable with the camera on me and it shows in pictures.
I'm a pretty good cook but taking care of the important people in my life is my biggest strength. I'm also told I'm a great listener and have other hidden talents.
What I want to be good at. I want to learn to 'drive' a motorcycle (I'm not a good passenger), knit, become a shade tree mechanic - how can I ever hope to own a vintage muscle car if this doesn't happen.
I appear to be very conservative when actually I'm more bohemian. "I'm a serous person wrapped in a cloak of playfulness and dry wit". I've never made any money because I've always been more interested in helping people then having stuff and I'm perfectly happy living like a graduate student, most days.
My favorite food is usually whats in front of me - friends joke that I should weigh at least 200 lbs! But I can also be picky. There are some flavors I can't bring myself to appreciate - fennel being the biggest. I also have this thing about texture, I don't know why, its just there. Grits and cottage cheese. Ewww!!
There's an addendum to #2. Most of my closest friends are men. If you're uncomfortable with that then I wish you well. They are purely platonic relationships - from both sides. I won't choose you over them.
