- Things I am looking for in a person are:
I’m looking for an adventure buddy, a partner in crime. Gender is insignificant, which is surprisingly difficult to communicate to the form this site uses. If you like hiking, traveling, and/or exploring — and enjoy long, sprawling conversations about big ideas — please feel free to send me a message! If you don’t have full membership here, you’re more than welcome to email me at [email protected].
P.S. Will anyone be on the Camino de Santiago in 2016?
- About me
“Be glad of life, because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars.” Henry Van Dyke
Hi! My name is Kristin.
I’m a wanderer, an adventurer. I’m a long-distance runner and a much-longer-distance backpacker. (Appalachian Trail Class of 2012!) I love to explore new places and new ideas. I value unique experiences and strive to “earn my years,” in the words of a good friend of mine.
I’m an idealist who endeavors to live life with an open mind and an open heart. I’m the sort of optimistic person who readily finds the good in everyone and everything and is willing to stand up against perceived breaches of that goodness. I’m an easy-going person who rarely becomes upset by daily trials and tribulations; there are far too many more important problems that need solving.
I’m a dreamer—of the John Lennon variety. Sometimes, I think I was born in the wrong generation. Sure, I get excited about new gadgets and technologies, and I’m no hipster; however, my gut reaction to our ever more-virtual world is nostalgia for the way things used to be. I’m happiest with just my backpack and trekking poles, have loved every mile of the 1000+ I’ve hitchhiked, and intend to start an intentional community someday.
On a surprisingly related note, I’m a country kid at heart. I spent my teenage and early adult years on a small farm in rural Kentucky. As a result, I’m the sort of person who talks to passersby and takes people’s words as truth. I value simplicity and become increasingly less materialistic with age. I’ve been told that I’m a “genuine” person; I wear my heart on my sleeve and am more transparent than the government promised us it would become after the last election. ;^)
I’m a student, through and through. A naturally curious person, I love learning and believe education can take many forms. If you have a few favorite thought experiments or ideas to ponder or consider yourself an armchair philosopher, we’re going to get along.
If you’re inclined to appreciate personality tests, here you go: I’m an INFP and a Gryffindor, a solid liberal and a neutral good.
