I'm delightfully odd in a good way. I've been told that I am an old soul. I have the gift for gab and I am Italian so I talk with my hands. I love to dance and do so most any chance I have. I get told from time to time that I am intimidating, it's because I call people out on their bs. Honestly, I am a kind, generous person so you may be pleasantly surprised if you decide to message me.
I'm bisexual and poly.
Cooking especially baking. My pies are glorious!
Making people laugh.. if not with me then at me, I have a little bit of a clumsy streak.
Catch Phrase, Backgammon, Rummy, and Egyptian war (card game).. oh and remember that game Jenga? I used to be pretty bomb at thathe game. (Update... I tried Jenna at a bar the other day. Not my best showing lol)
The Things They Carried, Microaggressions in Everyday Life: Race, Gender, and Sexual Orientation (yes it is a textbook.. and yes I did have fun reading it), Their Eyes Were Watching God, Finding Alaska, Define Normal, Divinci Code, and Digital Fortress.
My favorite movie is the Sound of Music.. it was a childhood favorite that I have yet to grow out of. Bio Dome, Big Fish, Birdcage, Remember the Titans, Sister Act 1 and 2, Con-Air, Some Like It Hot, How High, The Princess Bride, Boondock Saints 1 and 2, Steel Toes, Back to the Future Trilogy, Water, Bodyguard, Secondhand Lions, Ghostbusters 1 and 2, Grown Ups, Everybody Wants to Be Italian, You Kill Me, TiMER, The Godfather Trilogy, It's a BoyGirl Thing, Jack, Mermaides.. etc. I love documentries, maybe that's weird but it's me. Most anything with Meg Ryan, Adam Sandler, Hugh Jackman, Antonio Banderas, or Tom Hanks. Also anything Charlie Chapman or Abbott and Costello. I'm the type of girl that will sit on the couch with you and watch sports, MMA, and UFC; and I'll probably get into it more than you do.
As for TV shows.. I don't have a tv, but I love Mad Men, Firefly, HIMYM, Numb3rs, New Girl, Big Bang Theory, Sons of Anarchy, Devious Maids, Master Chef, Haven, Leverage etc.. I think you get the point.
Country, classic rock, Motown, rock, alt., some pop, some rap, some hip hop, reggae, dubstep, and reggaeton. I also like some classical, acoustic, most anything with a violin or a saxophone or Irish. Frank Sinatra!, Andy McKee, P!nk, The Black Keys, Pitbull, The Script, Josh Turner, Train, (< get it? >) Pat Monahan, Miranda Lambert, Kings of Leon, Mumford and Sons is a new favorite, Paramore, Skrillex, Journey... and the list goes on and on. Lately I've been really into Norah Jones, Bright Eyes, and the song Gotten by Slash ft. Adam Levine. I also love just about anything dance related.. case in point half of the stations on my Pandora are Reggaeton.
I will try most anything once, but if I don't like it you probably won't change my mind. Top three are Mexican, Indian, and Chinese... not necessarily in that order. I really like French and Puerto Rican food too. I like to cook almost as much as I like to eat. I tend to cook more Italian style food and I love trying new things when I get the chance. I love vegetables but I'm not a vegetarian.
I make really good soups. I've been making homemade pasta since I was like 10. I can make pumpkin pies from scratch, including cooking the pumpkin. I have made jam, gnocci, lumpias, tamales, chorizo, ravioli, and bread all from scratch.. hungry yet? Yeah I thought so. I recently fell in love with baking, I really love fresh bread and pizza dough.. ohh zeppolis yum!
I will not eat: Mayonnaise, bananas, cauliflower, carrots, and scallops.
2. Of course the essentials of sunlight, food, shelter, and water.. and yes I am counting the essentials as one.
3. Music and dance.
4. Good verbal communication in my relationships.
5. Riveting conversations with intelligent or insightful people.
The fact that I want to get into Archery and shooting... (active goal). Also what type of bow I want. And why bullets are so stinkin' expensive.
I also have problems saying no to people when they ask for help. I'm a fixer and even if it is incredibly inconvenient, I try to help. I have a tendency for taking on too much, and spreading myself too thin.
I am stubborn almost to a fault but I do listen to other people and their opinions, I just don't waver in my own. Just because you "win" an argument doesn't mean that you changed my opinion. I tend to find it easier to agree to disagree.
To be honest, I guess the most private thing that I am willing to admit is that I'm on here.. though I promise to lie about how we met :)
If you can handle the dichotomy of me liking to wear dresses, heels, and have my nails done; yet, at the same time love to go out shooting, muddin', and camping etc.
...If you didn't have to look up the meaning of dichotomy.
