If I had to pick 5 words to describe myself, and my motivation in life they would be: passion, freedom, empowerment, integrity, and peace.
I am a girly girl. I like cute things, especially anime style, Disney, dressing up, playing with make-up, having pretty nails and hair, doing spa things, and shopping. I am not the type to spend lots of time on my appearance very often though, it is definitely not a daily practice.
I love nature and enjoy being outside, but I am not really sporty. I like hiking with good company. Anywhere I get to be around great trees and/or rocks makes me very happy. I also love being around/on water. I've only been kayaking once but I really enjoyed it and am interested in going again and also in trying other water activities/sports.
Personal growth is really important to me. It's a huge part of who I am. I grew up around a lot of personal growth work. I took my first workshop when I was 13. I have studied with the Human Awareness Institute (HAI), Insight Seminars, and PAX Programs. Currently I am most involved with PAX, although HAI has a big presence in my family. I am looking to find someone who has worked on themselves as well. Someone who understands the importance of self love and acceptance. Who feels like they know who they are, while also being aware that it is a never ending process and we are always getting closer to the next approximation. It is something that is important to who I am and I would like to be able to share it with my partner.
I have often been described as pragmatic, pedantic, and conscientious. And, at times, a bit too literal for my own good. :p
I am an artistic/ crafty person. My hobby of choice is making amigurumi (crocheted stuffed animals), I have also been breaking out into making creative scarves. Last project I completed was a bacon and eggs scarf for my brother. I tend to go in cycles with how much I do it. Currently I'm not crocheting much at all.
I am a little bit nerdy. I generally just say I'm nerd friendly. I have a lot of nerdy friends. I like the comic book movies, used to read Manga back in high school, enjoy going to cons sometimes (I've been to ComicCon and AnimeExpo), and play some Nintendo DS video games. FYI I don't really watch anime very often. I just like the art style and how cute and colorful they make everything.
I would say that I am definitely a bit California hippy, new age, woo-woo. My whole family pretty much is. I have a branch down here and a branch up in the Pacific Northwest. What I mean by this is things like holistic/naturopathic health, organic food, liberal views, working with energy, and a kind of universal spirituality.
My friends call me a mystic because I'm spot on when I read tarot. Despite the universe's gift, though, I'm pretty down to earth, logical and easygoing.
Family is very important to me. Both blood and chosen. I am very loyal and do what I can to support those I care about.
