Self summary, hmm...I am Russian/Ukrainian - patriarchal culture...all that jazz, I follow it. This means I believe in genders as social structures and find nothing wrong with it (for the extremists out there...no, this does not mean I expect to sit at home doing nothing while you work; I have a job and dreams and goals for myself)...also means I much prefer stronger men and therefore am more selective than I'd ideally like to be.
I grew up half in Russia/Ukraine, half in California, so I am both liberal and conservative in different respects. Above all, I believe that the best way of life is to love. Not in a romantic way, although that is certainly part of it, but in a Buddhist way. I am not Buddhist, but they have the best life philosophy as far as I am concerned.
I love to dance, and I tend to break into song a lot. I am physically affectionate and pretty straightforward with pretty much everything, may even be blunt. Don't take it personally. I do try to be polite all the time though, manners and all that.
I think education everywhere has become something of a mockery of the whole goal of true education: "Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each." -- debating home-schooling my future kids so they don't grow up hating knowledge.
