SAM 38..
    Currently in Bootcamp at Wheaton Labs.. want to see WL grow into the boom-town of permaculture.. would like some company.. the cats are great, but a human might be preferable for longer conversation or shared interests..
    About me.. people have said that I'm "weird".. so I take it that I'm not "normal".. to me, weirdness was usually more tolerable than b.o. or b.s... so I try to stay odor free and straight forward..
    People have said that I'm "sweet".. I gave myself the nickname "Suga-Shane" for a while, but it didn't seem to catch on.. so now, I go by Dez..
    People have said that I'm "serious".. I suppose that's in line with my no-b.s. attitude.. I loosened up quite a bit white working in the back of a pizza restaurant.. delivering pies, prepping veggies, and cracking all kinds of nonsense jokes all hours of the shift.. it made the work fun, in a pleasantly surprising way.. I felt a bit like Spock "getting" the humor of a joke most times, but eventually, I was the one making them laugh.. ahh, good times at the busy kitchen..
    To me, life is finding enjoyment in the little things.. and if it can be shared, that's winning..
What have people said about you?
Where are you headed in life?

much love,
Dez

Hi Dez! You are super cute! I love your sense of adventure. If you ever wanna come to Florida and befriend a ready-made family of four (myself and my three fantastic kiddos), let me know!  

If Florida's a bit too far but you'd like a pen pal, send me a purple moosage and we can email back and forth. I read through a couple of your bootcamp journal entries, and you seem to like writing. I do, too! And I really love long, descriptive, personal letters from friends who also love long, descriptive, personal letters. In a modern world full of choppy sentences and bullet-points, longform letters seem like a thing of the past. I like reviving them.

Take care, and good luck with your search!
