My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Describing myself has always been a challenge. Trying to take the entirety of who I am and condense it down into a measly collection of words is a massive task. Even with several long paragraphs at my disposal I always it difficult to try and deliver an accurate portrayal of myself with just words.
What I can tell you, is that who I am is not so much the most important topic at hand, but who I am Becoming.

However, that isn't terribly helpful, so allow me to attempt to describe myself for you.

I am introverted around large groups of people, but extroverted in small social situations.
I can be shy and bombastic, worried and relaxed. I'm very punctual and try to be tidy.
I tend to know a little about a lot of things. I'm naturally curious, love reading, and I find myself wikiwalking all over the internet learning (not so) random things.

I have a passion for art and artsy things. I like a wide range of things, including but not limited to knitting and crocheting, beading and jewelry making, glass blowing, paper crafts, ceramics, sculpture, painting, drawing, music, metal work, leather work, embroidery etc etc.
I don't do all those things, but would certainly love to!

I am a bit of a gamer, of both the table top RPG (including D&D 3.5 and WOD) and video game variety. My first video game ever was pokemon red. I dabble in console gaming, xbox and ps2.

I am a reader, writer, and dreamer.
I have a deep interest in spirituality. I find personal connection much more easily in non-Abrahamic religions, such as Buddhism, shinto, paganism, shamanism, druidism, and other such things.
I don't hate Christianity.
I don't know if I believe in ghosts, or the paranormal. I'd like to believe in spirit-guides and animal totems, but still don't know for sure how I feel about it.

Since I don't have a picture up yet, I should let you know, that I'm a bigger girl.
Curvy in all the right places, but I have to go to Lane Bryant to get jeans that fit right.
I've struggled with weight and size, body image and self acceptance for almost as long as I can remember. I'm progressing, though. Changing my relationship with food, and looking for physically active things that I like doing.
I've been walking a lot, and my interest in some weight lifting and core strength has grown.
I enjoy hiking and archery. I've done paintball, and still have my gear, but I'm not sure it's really the sport for me.
I want to learn horseback riding, and maybe some day I'll work up the courage to taking a belly dancing, tai chi or yoga class up at PCC.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am looking to find my way in life. Sometimes I wonder if there IS no way, and we're all just supposed to make it up as we go!
I have a wide range of interests, and seek to expand my awareness of life, the universe and everything.
I am working a job that pays the bills while still trying to form a career I'll want to retire from.

I am exploring new hobbies, and seeking new friends.
My current "friends" group is woefully full of people I've found I don't actually enjoy hanging out with, and that makes me sad.
Some are outright toxic individuals, others are just becoming so absorbed in their lives/hobbies/families/careers, that there just isn't room for me as a friend anymore.

I've played casually in the local SCA community for several years now, but I am unsure if it is a hobby I should continue. My interest in it is rather tepid right now. This is somewhat related to me needing to find more/new friends.
My current area of interest in this is in building a Middle/Near Eastern persona. Preferably of the Turkish Ottoman variety. In my recent research I discovered that the Ottoman Turks ruled the area that later became the Ukraine, which I have ancestral ties to.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I don't feel like I am particularly good at anything!
Life is about the journey, right?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first thing someone is going to notice about my OCK profile... is no picture!
I am reluctant to upload a pic because I am here for friends, and I am also kind of weird about putting pictures of myself on the internet.
That and there aren't many good pictures of me. I've been struggling with weight loss, so I'm pretty self conscious in-front of cameras still.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As a child, I was a voracious reader. I read all sorts of fiction and loved the hell out of it. I haven't done much reading as an adult (as real life tends to get in the way of leisure activities), but some of my favorite authors/books from my child hood were things like Redwall by Brian Jaques, Mercedes Lackey, Narnia, Harry Potter, Douglas Adams, Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, Tamora Pierce etc etc.
I also went out of my way to read classics, such as Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, The Invisible Man, The Jungle Book, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Mary Shelly's Frankenstein and yes, even 1984.

As far as movies and TV go, I enjoy a wide range of things. I don't tend to watch TV on the TV (I don't really watch things unless it's on the Netflix or other wise streamed online), but some of my favorite movies/tv shows include Avatar: The Last Airbender (I TRIED to like Legend of Korra but just couldn't. Feel free to ask me about it), Grimm, The Colony, 10th Kingdom, almost all of the Pixar movies, Farscape, Firefly/Serenity, My Cat from Hell, Animal Cops, Breaking Bad ( I haven't watched any of season 5 yet, so please no spoilers!), Mythbusters, Troll Hunter, Walking Dead, and so on.
I think Tim Burton is a genius, but needs to take a serious break, I think M. Night. Shamalama-ding-dong ruined The Last Airbender and can never be forgiven. I think Joss Wheadon is a nerd-demi god, and should be careful to not abuse his power.
I think Andrew Garfield made a perfectly great Spider-Man, and shouldn't be compared to Toby McGuire, no more than you'd compare Johnny Depp's Willy Wonka to Gene Wilder's. They are just different approaches to a character.
Oh. Also, I watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I think it's funny, cute, and incredibly imaginative. Bro-hoof to those who also watch. And non-bronies, fear not... I shall never push the show onto you. All I ask, is you don't hate.

I also enjoy some anime, such as Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Moribito, Hellgirl (and Two-Mirrors and Three Vessels), Natsume Book of Friends, Blue Gender, Blue Exorcist, Mushi-shi, High School of the Dead, FLCL and so on.

On Netflix my recently watched list tends to be cluttered with documentaries and animal planet/national geographic shows. I like putting them on and doing a hand-craft or other hobby.

I recently finished a series called Survivorman, which could be described as a lower-key, Canadian survival show comparable to Man v. Wild. Just as much education, much less eye-rolling.

Music: I'll listen to most anything with a good beat, as long as I don't find the lyrics irritating or distasteful. My collection of mp3's range from Lady Gaga and Skrillix to Enya, Joshua Karunesh, Jason Mraz and Mumford and Sons.
However, one of my favorite genre's is techno and dance, stuff like Paul Oakenfold, Crystal Method, Deadmau5. I love putting it on the the background and working on something creative

I love cooking, and trying new foods. There is a 'food challenge' list that goes around facebook, I'd love to be able to fill most of that out eventually!
I am a huge fan of organic and locally produced food and prefer fresh produce from farmers markets to store bought.
I do try to never go too long with out sushi. And pho is amazing when you're sick.
I'm a fan of good beer and coffee. I grow my own herbs and mix my own teas. Eventually I'd like to get into brewing, but unfortunately it's not an option for me right now.

I do my best to follow a paleo-inspired diets such as, The Primal Blueprint and The Paleo Diet.
At first I tried it for weight-loss, and found instead of dropping a lot of weight (more size than pounds), I also shed the crippling depression that I'd fought with since I was a pre-teen.
For the first time in as long as I can remember, I feel happy, motivated, positive and optimistic about life.
I'll be eating Paleo for the rest of my life now, it's an amazing feeling to realize you don't need medication for your issue, you needed to stop ingesting the poison that was causing it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Here's a better idea.
Six things from my bucket list I have yet to do.

1: See the aurora borealis IRL.
2: Travel to a different continent.
3: Find Buried Treasure
4: Write and publish a novel
5: Become fluent in a second (or third!) language
6: Sew a Memory Quilt.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The human condition, spirituality, personal growth, and what we are doing with our lives.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work nights these days, *sigh*.
But on the nights I do have off, if I'm not out with my boyfriend, I'm derping around the house and hanging out with my cat. We watch TV together, her favorite channel is animal planet.

No really. My cat watches TV. Not even joking. Ask for pictures, I can prove it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't swim. Not well anyway.
