My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
born in los angeles, moved to andalusia and spent the first four years of my life there, then moved to mexico city/mazatlan for a year, and then came back to los angeles.

i spend most of my [extra] time reading, working on art projects, running, and exploring---though not as much as i would like. i don't hate television, i just don't have time for it---on occasion i'll watch something on netflix.

i'm good with my hands and i don't mind getting dirty---i just hate having to clean off after an oil change. the outdoors make me feel at peace---and reminds me of how small i am. i take things as they come---and accept them. i don't throw tantrums or hissy fits---life is too short to stress over the small stuff.

i'm grounded to the earth, and practical. i don't get mad because i understand there are external/internal variables in play that make beings do things they don't really want to do that affect how others feel---it's something i do automatically because it's part of who i am. i usually laugh when people get mad/angry and attempt to bring them back down to a place of peace (i.e., if he/she is approachable).

“I don't believe in aging. I believe in forever altering one's aspect to the sun. ”
― Virginia Woolf

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
exploring, bike, running shoes, backpack, tent, art
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
creating objects and propaganda.

Also, lately I've been think about what Harry Reis, PhD, points out. “Online dating creates a shopping mentality, and that is probably not a particularly good way to go about choosing a mate.” This can lead, he states, to daters becoming over critical, and can discourage spontaneous interaction, especially when online daters eventually meet in person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
making objects, at a play or concert, reading books, drinking wine/beer at a bar, drinking a double-shot espresso at a cafe, doing research, or listening to music and reading music sheets.
