That being said I think I have narrowed it down a bit.
I'm sure you will be shocked to hear that as real live human being in Portland I really like beer. Craft beer, Belgian beer, even a few outstanding macros as well. i had the idea of somehow bringing together being a grown up and liking beer could actually work out as far a career choice. I'm pursuing my Cicerone 1 certification now and it is a little scary. I like really have to study for this ya know. I wasn't very good at studying in college so hopefully I can grind it out. it does help that as part of studying I drink beer and talk about it with friends. Hopefully that will allow me to get a grown up job, somehow. ???
Still trying to find my groove in this crazy town. I transplanted from Colorado about a year and a half ago, and before that I spent my formative years in Ohio. I really really want to just absolutely love Portland but making friends as a 30 year old transplant who knew pretty much no one before moving is difficult. I work in the service industry and so evenings and weekends are my work hours, pretty much the opposite from most people I know. I do love serving and bartending, it is dynamic and fun a lot of the time, but I am gonna need a backyotomy eventually. If you have a 9-5 work situation going on then we probably won't see each other too often. Unless you have zero respect for sleep and want to stay up late with me and be a complete and total zombie at work tomorrow.
I'm also trying to figure myself out, spend some quality time being introspective. I've managed to make it through some really tough situations over the last couple years and I want to enhance the things about me that helped me through and also work on not holding on to anger and being content with the fact that I made it through and I am in a good place. There are a million trillion ways to live a happy and fulfilling life and i want to add more to the list.
Some of my favorite movies are The Big Lebowski, The Princess Bride, Chicago, Witches (I heart Anjelica Houston), Stand By Me, Cinderella, Donnie Darko, Beerfest, and The Christmas Story.
I really love Dexter, House, Chopped and Anthony Bourdain No Reservations, 30 Rock, X Files, Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, and a super guilty pleaseure is Project Runway.
I like a lot of different music and go to shows whenever I can. Open up my mp3's and you will find the likes of Ween, Jenny Lewis, Phish, Leftover Salmon, My Morning Jacket, the Avett Brothers, Ratatat, The Grateful Dead, Boombox, Big Boi, Aesop Rock, Phantogram, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the list goes on and on.
I spend a lot of time planning adventures in my head, some of them crazy and probably unattainable for me at this point, but others that I can actually accomplish. I would rather spend all of my money on adventures and making memories than a bunch of meaningless items that I just have to get rid of when i move or lug from place to place.
I also wonder why everyone in the PNW is obsessed with crazy over-hopped beer? This NWIPA thing is not my jam. "Yes I'll have a glass of burn off my fucking tastebuds please," blah. don't get me wrong i love a good balanced IPA with some nuance and character but there is so much more out there than IPA. Give it a try and you might be surprised.
Also I am a sucker for the accordion. I wish I had one.
If you want to go on adventures, if you want to sit at home on crappy weather days and watch Netflix and try a new brew, or if you can teach me about something new and interesting.
