beautyandterror, 30 y.o. from St. Louis, United States

About: I am beautyandterror, 30 from St. Louis, United States. I'm 28, single, and I love to travel! I have a degree in English that I'm not using at all, instead I've started a small business that will (hopefully) be successful enough allow me to expatriate and travel the world while working from my computer. For now I travel as often as I can! I love animals, though I don't have any now and have been keeping it that way so that I am more free to travel for the time being. I pet sit quite a bit though, it's a great way to get around! I like finding things to go do, like trying a new class or a restaurant, but I also spend my fair share of time cooking and gardening and generally enjoying being a homebody. I can be a huge nerd, if it's fantasy or sci-fi I'm probably into it in some capacity. Otherwise I'm super passionate about history, and that's one of the reasons I love to travel and write and imagine myself in other times and places. So far I've been to France, England, Hungary, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Martinique, and road trip all over the United States. My schedule is very flexible and I'm pretty much up for anything. I like camping and outdoorsy stuff. I'm a foodie and I love museums and music. I love people and enjoy festivals of all types. I love the beach and being out on the water and have a boating license (maybe a captain's license one day? It's on the bucket list). I can ski and I'm working on getting my scuba certification . I'm as happy relaxing for a week as I am hiking around the country or touring a city. If it's out there, I want to go! Try everything once! I'm a writer and a voracious reader, and Rilke or Bill Watterson always say it best: God speaks to each of us as he makes us, then walks with us silently out of the night. These are the words we dimly hear: You, sent out beyond your recall, go to the limits of your longing. Embody me. Flare up like a flame and make big shadows I can move in. Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final. Don't let yourself lose me. Nearby is the country they call life. You will know it by its seriousness. Give me your hand. -RMR You need a lobotomy. I'll get a saw. -BW
