my friends would say i'm funny, honest, good at giving advice, stubborn, and adventurous. my coworkers would say i'm hard-working, fair, and straight-forward. my mother would say i'm her favorite.
i like to do things that i think are hard or that scare me so i can challenge myself -- it's important to me to keep learning about myself. i'll generally say "yes" to most things; i like having conversations where we disagree; i like putting myself outside of my comfort zone.
other things i like to do: play guitar, see live music, sing karaoke, drink too much and laugh a lot, debate shows like homeland or breaking bad, play Cards Against Humanity, cook or bake something awesome and new, travel near or far (this year has been new york, tahoe, and amsterdam).
i recently tried Whiskey Slaps shots with a friend. do you know what these are? i learned very quickly. in case you don't know... take a shot of whiskey with a friend, then they slap you. then trade - they take a shot and you slap them. it is right good fun for the dumb, let me tell you!
so, do you wanna play guitar? or teach me how to use my DLSR camera? or see some live music? or maybe sing a little karaoke? or talk to me about homeland or scandal? because i like all those things and i hope you do, too.
silence of the lambs is my favorite movie. i like other movies, though. comedies and pixar films and stuff and i'm more inclined to see a thriller / action / horror movie over a romantic comedy. actually, i just really like going to the movies and will see almost anything as long as jim carrey isn't in it. (ps: i am very serious about this jim carrey thing).
i love parks and rec, mad men, breaking bad, jeopardy, game of thrones, homeland, scandal, new girl, girls, bones, survivor. i'll admit i watch some terrible reality shows that i don't even tell my friends i watch so don't worry, i would never subject you to them. oh, and the golden girls and roseanne sometimes.
on my current and more recent rotation is: bon iver, the head and the heart, alt-j, gary clark jr., macklemore and ryan lewis, the avett brothers, penguin prison, and mumford & sons. i also like yacht rock, classical, classic rock and a bunch of other stuff too.
food is super cool, especially if it's spicy. i started eating red meat recently after 8 years without it so now all i want are cheeseburgers. i like trying new things and i also really like breakfast for dinner.
is it douchey of me to say that if you are thinking about emailing me you should come up with something better than "hey, what's up?"? the barista at my local coffee shop asks me what's up. you should be a little more creative.
it would lovely if you were also funny, responsible and have your own hobbies and friends. i'm busy with work and my own hobbies and friends but i make time for things (and people) that are important to me. i'm looking to meet someone who is looking for a relationship since that's what i'm looking for, too (no rush on it, though - it's gotta be right). i'm not looking for casual homies to hang out with... that's what craigslist is for.
