I currently attend my local community college, Northwest Vista College, in San Antonio, Texas as a history major, with emphasis on the classical world (the Mycenaeans to the Romans c. 470 CE). I grew up in rural South Texas about 100 miles inland from the Gulf (30 miles outside of the nearest large city, Victoria), and my accent, vernacular, and, to some exent, politics show it. I am currently going through the process of picking up the bits and pieces of myself since my last break-up about a year ago. I am a romantic, always have been, and I am looking for a committed relationship and for friendships. As to my favorite things, I really enjoy conversation and connection, as well as anything that would facilitate them. Things like dark chocolate, real coffee, cooking, games, music (of all sorts), cinema (especially film noir), literature (bothpoetry and prose), and the like. I have studied Latin extensively, by the way, so...si intelliges mi linguam, voce me.
More specifically on the music question, I especially love expressive music...music that opens a window to the artist and the soul. I also like music that is easy to dance to/ beckons dance. Things like Sade, Chris Botti, Miles Davis, Basshunter, ATB, Clay Walker, George Strait, Carrie
Underwood, Modest Mouse, The Mars Volta, Sparta, Detachment Kit, Chronic Future, etc.
