I have a passion for creative movement arts (Dancing, Gymnastics, Martial Arts, Capoeria, Stage Combat) and any creative expression related to freedom of movement. I adore the crafting of stories and weaving of words (writing, acting, role-play). I'm a geek, a gamer and an open minded liberal with a healthy respect for rational conservatives (zealotry and extremism are almost never a good thing no matter the viewpoint they originate from). I'm into historical swordplay/fencing, expect me to joke about getting stabbed a lot. I read a lot, mostly Fantasy or Sci-fi and enjoy writing in those genera as well. I adore felines and have been described as a bit catlike myself for traits like my insatiable curiosity.
I am not afraid to ask questions and am honest to a fault. I've practiced transcendental meditation for most of my life, spent a great deal of time exploring philosophy (both eastern and western.) I'm fascinated with the way the mind works and the study of thought and perception (Epistemology, psychology, logic, Vedic Science). I'm very interested in holistic healing modalities and how the mind, body and spirit work in harmony.
I enjoy deep conversation about complex subjects and welcome friends who can (and will) challenge my ideas. I have a lot of respect for people who aren't afraid to let me know if I'm being a jerk or ignorant about something (so long as they do so in a civil manner). I try to be the kind of person who will push the people I care about to think and grow; and hope they do the same for me.
I'm a playfully mischievous spirit and would love to find someone to be playful alongside, a 'partner in crime' so to speak. I admire passion, compassion, intelligence and creativity. Strong-willed women, who are proud of their femininity but are not afraid to step outside traditional gender roles or challenge the status quo are awesome.
crafting intricate tales and complex story-lines.
Dancing (or so people keep telling me...)
Heartfelt public speaking
Stuff... I think... this is kinda tricky I have a lot of skills I objectively know I'm good at (and/or people tell me I'm good at) but I feel shy about saying something. I don't like to feel like I'm bragging or showing off.
My being short (5'3")
Whatever crazy thing I'm doing at the time.
The way I move (being able to do flips draws a lot of attention)
A lot of strangers have commented that I'm very polite and respectful.
I get asked a lot if my name is actually spelled with 1 T. It is.
I rarely bother with the idea of favorites, It's rare for any one thing to stand out enough for me to label it as 'my favorite'.
-The ability to creatively express myself physically and mentally.
-Friends and family.
-A good book or story to read.
-Something meaningfully productive to do with myself.
I have an hyperactive curiosity, apparently it is fun to tease by dropping hints that kick it into over drive and then withholding the details which would satisfy it.
Also, I'm always creating worlds and stories in my head.
Fridays are typically pretty boring when compared with my weekends (which are likely to include 'stabbing' people with swords or getting kicked at). But Recently, the occasional Game Night, Steampunk event or Blues Dance have made them more interesting.
It's hard for me not to answer almost anything when it's asked directly. Oddly, I'm good at confidentiality, I will take other people's secrets to my grave, But I'll probably tell you anything you want to know about me, provided you know what to ask.
I have trouble knowing when to shut up and can make myself sound a lot worse than I am. I'm over willing to admit my (sometimes imagined) faults.
Also I have a 'small' talent for understatement.
I know it can be a hard to break the ice so here are a few random things it's easy to get me to talk about:
-Good books (especially Fantasy or Sci-fi)
-Writing, telling stories or wordplay.
-games (video/board/role-playing/physical games)
-Freedom of movement and the creative expression of dance or other movement arts.
- martial arts, fencing, Swordplay, Self-defense
-and tons of other things I can't think of right now.
