My self-summary
I am a northwest soul, born and raised (OR ,ID, & WA) and am very grateful that this is the corner of the world I happened to be born in. I am thoroughly happy with my life thus far and do my best to keep enjoying it. I am an extrovert wanna be introvert. I come from a super musical family and have played the drums since I was 8, both set and djembe. Making music with people is hands down one of my favorite things. Also high on the list: camping, road trips, and adventure. Spending time outside recharges my batteries but I also appreciate a good night in cooking and spending time with those I love. I do well in large groups of people and can make friends with anyone, but I prefer low key environments with a few close friends. I love spending time in solitude, practicing yoga, listening to music, and making pyrography art (wood burning). Lastly, I probably own more power tools and know more about cars than most girls.

I'm an 8 with a 7 wing (Enneagram Personality System) and an ENFJ (Myer's Briggs) if you're into that kind of thing.
What I’m doing with my life
Despite my childhood dream of growing up to be a pirate, I've been working toward the more stable path of social work. I finished school a few years ago at Seattle Pacific University. I have a B.A in psychology and a B.A in sociology. I'm planning to attend Portland State University in the near future and get my Master's in Social Work.
I’m really good at
Thinking logically, fixing things, making terrible puns, reading people, telling jokes that only 1% of people get, looking at the clock at exactly 12:34, remembering everything you've ever told me, organizing chaos, coming off as much less cool in my okc profile then I am in real life

The six things I could never do without
Music, yoga, dancing, books, my family, and personal growth
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Humans, and how weird we are.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working or not, doing something or not
You should message me if
Your self aware, loyal, and have a beard
or
you want to help me open jars, do yoga with me, or sleep with me under the stars.

... and if you noticed that I used the wrong contraction of you are just now.
