Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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.

LOTR (loved the books obviously as well), Underworld, Pan's
Labyrinth, Pirates of the Caribbean, and of course you have to love

awesome), Big Bang Theory.
Music: everything except for mainstream rap, which I dislike
Love food, all my closest friends are food addicts, so we eat and
then we nap.

Music, books, chocolate, rain, fire, pen/paper
