The name's Gerilyn... like jair-a-lin. I bet you've never heard that one before.
Despite my efforts, this is still all a facade.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently work full-time and live in the city. I spend my free time working on my art, mostly painting and photography. I hope to travel and make art in the process one day, even for a brief moment.
Try to get outdoors as much as possible. I day dream about it often. One of my favorite smells is dirt and leaves in the woods after it has just rained.
I'm very interested in the urban agriculture movement in the city. I have a few little veggies growing on my roof, which I'm proud of :)
I’m really good at
Getting paint on my clothes, drinking coffee, finding ways of
making things myself instead of buying it from the store,
attracting stray animals, being outdoors.

The six things I could never do without
My glasses/contacts. I like being able to see.
At least 7 hours of sleep.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Human interactions, social trends and their effects of society, group dynamics, the next time I can go hiking, if my artwork is shitty or not, traveling, and counting down the days until Starbucks will begin serving salted caramel lattes again.
I'm a INFJ, for what it's worth. I actually identify with that pretty closely... http://www.truity.com/personality-type/INFJ
On a typical Friday night I am
Being lame and staying in, planning my weekend, or out to an art gathering/show/bar/friends place/etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still wear my mouth retainers to bed, which makes for a pretty
You should message me if
I enjoy people that are more outgoing than me.
You enjoy these things in no particular order: traveling, hiking, rooftops, open spaces, art, thrifting, growing things, live music.
