My self-summary
I'm a self-proclaimed home body, but I also like to get out and do things too. Movies, plays, bar rarely, museums, coffee shop with friends (though I don't drink coffee), taking random classes, dangling my feet in the water from a dock at midnight, etc. I'm very casual and low maintenance. I'm most comfortable in jeans and a shirt, but am not opposed to putting on make up. I sometimes do it out of boredom or time to kill before heading out. lol

If I could travel more I would. I've been out of the country twice and would love to do it again. I enjoy seeing new places and people and learning about cultures and people in general.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm all over the place. I have my day job with infants at a daycare, I work at a wellness center, teaching, I'm out at a metaphysical shop one day a month, then I'm also a birth and postpartum doula. I am hoping next year is my quiet year.
I’m really good at
finding reasons not to go to sleep when I should. I wish I could say I was a really good at sleeping. (It's near midnight as I write this and on my mind apparently)
The first things people usually notice about me
Honestly? Probably the fact that my skin is very pale. lol My family does not tan, but I also don't try either. I've gotten so comfortable with it that I think I might look a little funny tan. A friend of mine says that it's that I'm usually smiling. I try to have a good sense of humor, especially when it comes to myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I've lately been reading a lot more "fantasy" type books lately. Patricia Briggs, Anya Bast, Terry Pratchett (probably 2-3 books of his), and things like that. I'm not too picky as long as I can get lost in the story.

Movies: This is hard because I have no specific genre I watch. Here's some movies I own to give you an idea: Pan's Labyrinth, MirrorMask, Fight Club, Memento, Gone With the Wind, Sherlock Holmes, Secret of Roan Inish, Om Shanti Om, Dogma, Death to Smoochy, City of Lost Children, Ink, Stage Beauty, etc.

Shows: I don't watch much tv at all. I loved Dead Like Me, Daria, Simpsons, and any show that isn't a soap. I cancelled my cable, so any series will be watched online or via Netflix. I'm oddly in love with BBC's Sherlock. Go figure.

Music: I'm pretty open minded when it comes to music except for most country and some rap. I love my rock, pop, celtic, comedy (a la Weird Al), etc. I switch between genres all the time. I've seen things from the Backstreet Boys to Sevendust in concert. I believe the most recent was Disturbed. (good show)

Food: Despite being lactose intolerant, I love cheese. lol I grew up with a very bland palate in food so I'm trying to expand. I'll admit I'm not a fan of sushi because of the nori (the seaweed part). But hey, at least I've tried it.
The six things I could never do without
Lets see...Other than obvious answers:

Blankets. It's Minnesota, I live in a drafty house, and I like to snuggle up in them.

Water. No, really. Nothing quenches my thirst more than water. I don't understand people who don't like "the taste" of water.

The ability to learn stuff. I like learning random things, even if it is sometimes to be a smarty pants, random trivial knowledge, how something works, etc.

My necklace. lol It's really nothing expensive, but I've been wearing it for along time and I feel naked without it. lol

Trees. They make oxygen. For us pale people, they also provide a nice place to hide when everyone else is in the sun tanning. Plus they're pretty during autumn when they change colors.

Opportunities to dance around the house like a dork. Instant mood lifter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why on Earth I decided to switch to 10 hour days. I still don't know.
On a typical Friday night I am
Who knows. 1 Friday I'm doing volunteer work at a wellness night, another Friday I'm at a coffee shop not drinking coffee. The other 2-3 Fridays a month I'm probably just relaxing, catching up on a show, knitting, dancing, out with friends, at a hafla...those sorts of things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Mannequins kind of creep me out. Not the ones in the stores selling the over-priced clothes. The ones in the museums made to look like they're a caveman killing the lion or signing the Declaration of Independence. I'd blame it on horror movies, but I don't watch many of those either.
You should message me if
You're bored, not too shy to say hi, felt compelled to, some inner voice screamed to you, or you remember me from a past life. lol
