My self-summary
I don't like apologies. They imply that someone other than me is responsible for how I feel. I love yoga and poetry. I'm considering teaching both. At the same time? Possibly. I'm also pretty into tennis lately. I'm getting better, too. I'm a soprano. I'm (slowly) learning to play guitar. My room is messy because there are many things I'd rather be doing and I know where everything is. I have a gland that produces crazy earrings. I have a cabinet devoted to tea. My favorites are Irish breakfast and peppermint. I know an awful lot of Disney songs by heart. I sing. A lot. I'm silly. Like crazy silly. If you're more serious than silly, you're definitely not for me. I like to paint, though I don't do it as often as I could. Why not? Probably for the same reason everyone avoids certain things: it feels good and there's no downside. It's still shocking sometimes how people avoid happiness. Like we're all guilt addicts. No wait, not like. I think we all definitely are. But it doesn't have to stay that way.

I really enjoy traveling and getting lost. I know how to handle being accosted by a drug addict when you're alone and lost in Manhattan at 2am. Inquire within. I was once lost and alone in the forest of Sonoma, CA. My phone was dead. I couldn't find my friend. It got dark. At one point I gave up, sat on a stump, threw my arms into the air, and screamed, "FUCK!" It didn't help. I laid on my stomach and looked over the edge of the Cliffs of Moher, aka the Cliffs of Insanity from The Princess Bride. I did not consider jumping. But I considered jumping. I traveled through the fey realm in the Burren.

I have some pretty crazy stories. But I'm not a product of my past. If you think you are, seek elsewhere, good ser. I wish you luck in your travels.

I'm pretty devoted to growth and spirituality. I've had some mind blowing experiences. I am certified (though I feel that's arbitrary) to read the Akashic Records. I have two tarot decks, but I'm only intimate with one. I think this world is insane, and not necessarily in the artsy, I'm-a-special-snowflake kind of way, but in a serious, wow-why-do-people-believe-these-illusions kind of way.

I'd like to find someone who can keep up with me mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and geographically. If you believe life is what you make of it in a practical, real way, do tell. I'm a great listener.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing. Finishing school. Trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Trying to figure out if growing up is mandatory. Trying my hand at unconditional love and trust for everyone. It's harder/easier than it sounds.
I’m really good at
Remembering useless information. My friends used to call me Fun Facts.

I'm terribly good at reading people.

I give beautiful, loving advice that is a miracle, meaning it is intended for both me and the person receiving the message.

My editing skills are unrivaled.

I'm also pretty awesome at Dr. Mario.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've always wondered about this... But a friend pointed out that just about anything I ever assumed people thought about me was wrong. So I'm content to say I have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Mists of Avalon, ASOIAF, The Vampire Chronicles (though I also enjoyed the Lives of the Mayfair Witches), Harry Potter, Dune (Frank Herbert's books, though Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson did a nice job of continuing the series), James Joyce's insanity, poetry of any kind (bad poetry is enjoyable, too, but my favorite poets are Elizabeth Bishop, Pablo Neruda, Edgar Allan Poe, Walt Whitman, Frank O'Hara, Carol Ann Davis, James Tate, Sharon Olds, and Natasha Tretheway), anything by Michael Ryce, A Course in Miracles, Many Lives, Many Masters, and, well, a lot more.

Movies: anything Monty Python, Watchmen, Serenity, Crash, Magnolia, LOTR, Amelie, Pan's Labyrinth, Dead Poets Society, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Life of Pi, Wanderlust, Stardust, anything by Miyazaki (Grave of the Fireflies might be too difficult to watch again, though)...just about anything, really. Except horror movies. No thanks.

Shows: Louie, Derek, The Office (both), HIMYM, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Evangelion, Archer, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Always Sunny, Fruits Basket, nature or history documentaries

Music: Counting Crows, Third Eye Blind, Robert Johnson, Joni Mitchell, Sigur Ros, Toad the Wet Sprocket, The Goo Goo Dolls, Barenaked Ladies, Colbie Caillat, but I'll listen to just about anything. I love music.

Food: Indian food, sushi, bacon. But I'm not picky.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order: music, some way to write, mango kombucha, my friends, strawberries, and forgiveness.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Time and what things really mean. How to alter my perception so I can get out of my own way and be happy all the time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing video or board games with friends, going to sleep obnoxiously early, reading, taking a bath...not all at once.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I recently moved and realized that 80% of my possessions are books. Also, I've DMed for 3.5 and Pathfinder. I miss playing. Oh yeah, and one time I made a sad attempt at breaking into a castle. It sounds cooler than it was. But it was still cool.
You should message me if
You have fun stories to share (D&D or otherwise), you can finish these lyrics: "I am colorblind, coffee black and egg white...," you ascribe to the ideas in A Course in Miracles, or you would genuinely enjoy reading poetry by Pablo Neruda to me. Also, if you're willing to acknowledge that I'm a person and not a fleshlight.
