I just moved to LA from San Diego because I want to attend school for Special Effects Make-up. I wanted to finish my BA in Graphic Design on the side, but now its looking like I. will have to do the reverse and finish my BA and take FX on the side. I'm still debating weather I want to stay here in LA & work in film or compromise and do theater makeup so I can live SD. I hope I have the strength to stay.
I do work 2 full time jobs right now. I know its not exactly fair to try and seriously date while I have so little time & am just starting my life in a new direction but at least you have a warning!
Still there? OK, here are some things to give you an idea of who I am:
I love to read: sci-fi, biographies, fantasy. Some of my favorite books are: Lord of the Rings-this is my all time favorite and back up book along with the Hobbit, American Shoulin, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Across the Nightingale Floor, Steal Across the Sky, Harry Potter, the Mercy Thompson novels, I also like biographies of interesting people
I enjoy everything from Metal to Blue Grass. Some of my favorite Artists are: Shakira, Zoe Keating, Foo Fighters, Muse, Mana, John Legend, Mumford & Sons, White Stripes, Jack Johnson, Mute Math, Jason Mraz, No Doubt.... & I like finding new music.
Some of my favorite movies and tv shows are: Lord of the Rings(big surprise), Shashank Redemption, V for Vendetta, Harry Potter, Coming to America, Trading Places, Amelie, Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, The Dark Knight seris, Enemy of the State, The 5th Element, Indiana Jones, X Men, all Pixar Movies, I like action movies: The A Team, RED... Archer, How I Met Your Mother, Big bang Theory, Bob's Burgers, Kung Fu, Star Trek, Firefly and I'm a huge Dr. Who fan!
I have recently lost a lot of weight(& I still have a little more to go) so being healthy has become important to me. I like to play tennis. I like to hike and go on picnics. I like to go to a local park and read. I haven't been camping since I was a kid but recently have been feeling the urge to go again.
I don't believe in owning a lot of things. My parents are pack-rats and I found that owning too many things is an un-necessary source of anxiety.
I love dogs (cats and other animals are cool too). I grew up with dogs( and a couple cats) and usually have some sort of pet when I can responsibly take care of them.
I love food!!! (&coffee, tea, beer and wine :)
I haven't really had a chance to travel so far in life, but I really want to travel the world when I'm able. I'm an Artist. I love to draw and paint and do fx makeup
I love to laugh. Its actually therapeutic for me because I have anxiety. So no drama please. My heart literally can not take it lol.
I'm clumsy. I like to make ninja jokes (usually about myself after I've been extremely clumsy). I think a sense of humor is the most attractive quality a guy can have (But awesome humor. There is a huge difference between awesome & obnoxious... if you dont know what I'm talking about, your the obnoxious friend that nobody really likes but has just been there since high school)
I would like to come out of this with a long-term relationship but I'm not in a hurry. It takes a long time to get to know someone and I've learned the value in taking things slow (and i really mean slow).
