I've spent much of my life living according to other people's standards and expectations, but after the end of my last relationship I've been trying to live my life according to my own standards, figuring out who I am, what I like, and what I want. It may sound like a very simple thing, but for someone who has lived for so long to please others, it's been a bit of a struggle. I'm not entirely proud to admit that this is the first time in my life I'm starting to figure out who I am, but that's the truth :) I tend to like having a plan, and knowing where I'm headed so self discovery has been a frustrating process!
That being said, I really enjoy meeting new people. There are times I find trying new thing intimidating, and I feel somewhat foolish, but I've been relishing the rewards of putting myself out there. You can learn a lot about yourself through the experience of others :)
I'd like to think I'm a pretty down to earth kinda girl. My friends and family are really my life's priority and there's nothing I wouldn't do for them. I'm pretty fortunate to have some amazing people in my life.
I'm a huge fan of concerts, that electric feeling of live music you can feel in your chest, random midnight adventures, meeting new people, long walks with old friends, conversations that keep me up all night, watching the sunrise, and trying things I've never done before! I'm also a country girl at heart, so I'll use any excuse I can to get out of the city. I love camping, hiking, and generally, just being outside, lol.
Staying fit is also something I find truly rewarding. Getting out and exercising is time to myself that I value greatly. It may sound strange but I find working out very therapeutic. It gives me time to think and reflect, and I don't take the opportunity to invest in my health for granted.
