I am a nature lover, artistic, creative and intelligent... I'm sarcastic with a fairly twisted sense of humor. "Quirky" has been used to describe me and "sassy" although that's a totally stupid word but it has no equivalent. Into gardening and landscaping, like to hike/explore and just be outdoors especially around water. I love the woods. My main hobbies are photography and oil painting.
I'm really into music and like alternative, old country, Motown, 60's and 70's rock, 80's, grunge, pop...lately it's been coldplay, lumineers, florence and the machine, steely dan, one republic, fol chen, fleetwood mac, johnny cash, four tops, otis redding, Jeff Buckley, outkast...All time favorites include willie nelson, crowded house, talking heads, stp, pearl jam, bob marley, old dmb, beach boys, beatles, stones, janis, 2pac, public enemy, neil diamond, weezer, queen, the gourds, the kinks, modest mouse, temptations, supremes, aretha, allman bros, massive attack, rem, mgmt, toad the wet sprocket...I have a soft spot for ani difranco. but also Katy and Britney. I'm good to have around at trivia...
I love to read, especially non-fiction on things like the economy and social issues. I'm progressive and liberal minded and love to talk politics and current events. Favorite authors include Steinbeck, HST, Paul Krugman, Matt Taibbi, Truman Capote, David Sedaris, Christopher Hitchens, Shakespeare (for serious) and ayn rand (totally kidding... really.)
I also love my braves, dirty birds and yellow jackets.
I like an open-minded guy who is informed and intelligent about his views and beliefs and is curious about the world we live in. Family is so important to me, I don't know what I'd do without mine, they have been there for me unconditionally whenever I have needed them. I am very close to my friends...we like to get together and cook dinners, go out to Athens/Atl, museums, photography roadtrips, vacations. Not into bars and clubs. I'd much rather go to a ball game, explore nature, stay in and watch a movie or go bowling, silly I know. No stuffy dates please!
Life is short and meant to be enjoyed not trudged through. Although I freely admit to being an overthinker, I try not to worry about nonsense that doesn't matter in the long run. I don't waste my time and energy with people or things I don't care about. Life is meant to be spent with the people you love, not people you don't mind.
Laughing is paramount. A sense of humor is a must. If you're into sarcastic girls with a healthy dose of dry wit and cynicism and a sense of the absurd, I'm your girl. I like guys that have a sensitive side but are still...men! Bonus points if you're the type of fellow who will stop to help a turtle across the road.
Intelligence. Long, informed conversations are the best. Silly random ones too. Shared interests are a bonus but not a requirement. Also, much appreciation if you actually read this...you have no idea, ha!
I also use ellipses...a lot.
