What can one say about themselves without seeming egomaniacal? I'll try to be honest, and will prove it by not using a spell checker but will leave my mistakes as proof of imperfection.
I love to travel. Born in a suburb i escaped my childhood through reading. I skipped school and took the train to DC to walk through endless halls of museums. I loved hip hop, punk rock, and urban struggle. So eventually i grew bored and as soon as i finised highschool i left. I saved up and bought a little toyota tercell and took off, disgusted with the closed minded culture i was born into. After ten years, i am twenty eight now, i ended up back home back in school and honestly gratefull to be close to my family again. It gives me great insight on myself to revisit some of the places i grew up in. But i know my blood, i yearn to establish myself somewhere, but not here. I am back here as a student of English, and while i am here i am learning how to teach english as a second language, by doing it constantly.
Not to bore with goals and achievements tho, i really love to have fun. Making music, writing and reading to me are constant companions, but nature is where my soul is set free.
I am very concious of my status in the world, having lived in many different places first and third world alike. I am one of those guys, i suppose i would steriotype. A white male with an amerikan passport, the image of the devil, or at least the colonialist, in that i am going to be spreading the christian tounge of english by being an english teacher. Eeech. I dont want to be that. Anything but that. But i am a white dude, some irish some native american, when i tan i look mexican, but in mexico everybody thought i was french. Eh well...
What i am looking for is a companion in life. I am not a superficial person, i would like to think of myself as an honest lover, an independent and affectionate human, just looking to exist and work towards contentment. I am interested in anybody adventurious and spirtual, being friends, being humans, thats all we can be. anybody who can understand the similarities between the love of "god" and the love of self, and the Difference between that and Romantic love, which is a mistranslation of Rumi esque romanticism, where his fictional love of a woman, who is allways out of reach somehow, really represents the greater love of the unspoken, which permieates all.
