I like to think of myself as very intelligent, and gifted in art and music. I also like to figure things out about myself and others. I've done a lot of self-questioning over the years, and hopefully that will add up to some good answers in the future. I know many things about myself already that I wouldn't have known if I hadn't questioned myself.
I'm fairly political, and while I respect all parties, I am a staunch liberal, and get along best with other liberals.
As for my personality type:
I'm an enneagram type 4w3 SX variant.
I'm a Myers-Briggs ENFP, most likely.
I am emotional, energetic, and playful
I'm mostly just here for friendship, and am mostly asexual. However, I can experience some degree of romantic attraction to any gender. I'm most attracted (romantically) to females, which is why I put "homoflexible".
I'm currently in college, though taking a bit of a short break. I plan to return eventually. I have taken four successful courses at CLC already, however: English 121 (college English), Study Skills, and Psychology 121 (college psychology). I took Math 101 (early math), English 122 (second level of college English), and Voice (private lessons), but I didn't do as well as I had hoped in Math 101, English 122, and Voice (especially since I felt the voice teacher didn't encourage me to get to my full potential) . I redid English 122 as an online course, and passed it with flying colors. (I was 3 points into the non-existent grade above an A, I believe.) Since I've recently moved to Northbrook, I will be attending a different community college.
I'm also working (slowly) on building my mathematical ability, since math is not my strongest subject, but I am good at computers, oddly enough. I may decide to work on computers or major in paleobiology and do something in the paleontology field for a living if I can't make a living through music. As much as I'd love to pursue my dream, I do acknowledge that I need a back-up plan.
My eyes are a definite feature a lot of people notice, as they are quite intense.
People often say that I'm very easy to talk to, and most notice that I am far from judgmental! I'm a caring (albeit moody and sometimes tempermental) person, and it's often apparent that I do worry a lot about my friends. I strive to be kind-hearted, empathetic, and warm, without losing sight of myself.
My favorite authors are Dean Koontz and Jean M. Auel, though I also love classic literature, such as "The Phantom of the Opera", "White Fang", anything by Shakespeare, and (if considered a classic) "Animal Farm". My favorite book so far is, "The Neverending Story", ironically written by a man by the name of Michael Ende.
As for TV shows, I like "Futurama", "Family Guy", "That 70's Show", "Phineas and Ferb", "Teen Wolf", the "Silverwing" series, "Once Upon A Time" and some anime. My guilty pleasure is "Full House".
As for movies, I like a lot of family oriented films, such as "Night at the Museum", "Hocus Pocus", "Despicable Me", and "Ice Age". Even so, a good horror movie, such as "Let Me In" or a good drama, such as "Mask" (the one with Cher) can be worth watching too. My all time favorite movie is "Frozen". I'm extremely obsessed with Elsa. Be warned. ;)
My favorite foods are Indian food, Dim sum, and sushi.
Nature is something that I have difficulty doing without for extended periods of time. If an area doesn't have trees nearby, I feel much less at home. I like to surround myself with house plants, and I currently have a Nerfolk Island pine, a spider plant, four baby spider plants (already potted), an air/angel plant in a glass ball, an aloe vera, and a ponytail palm. Similarly, I love the sun, and hate cloudy days. Needless to say, I find summer wonderful and winter utterly depressing, although snow can be beautiful. (I even count down the days until spring quite literally, the minute fall begins!) One day I plan to move to a warmer climate, such as California or Florida.
I'm exceedingly tied to music, and don't like to go long periods without that at all! There's just something calming about it. I love both the energy and relaxation associated with song. Silence just isn't my thing, and not having an MP3 player with me at all times is almost unthinkable!
I love my computer and the internet. Communicating is a huge part of my day to day life. I never had that in school, and I often find I socialize better over the internet. You may call me a "nerd" or "geek" if you must, but it's one of the things that I find essential.
Animals are a fairly important part of my life. I feel lonely without them. However I will warn that I'm a selective pet lover. That doesn't mean I will hate your pet with a passion, but one thing that ticks me off is people who don't train their animals. Obviously animals are never perfect (much like the human animal), but feeding a dog treats because they are barking will ultimately mean that the dog will learn to bark incessantly until you feed them. I used to be mildly allergic to dogs, and the allergy may come back, but for now I can tolerate them. I have absolutely no problem with cats, however.
Then there are the people in my life. I detest the thought of losing loved ones. Temperamental and high strung as I am, if someone is important to me, I will do my best to see a situation from both sides. I love material items. I love tech. I love stuffed animals. Still, nothing compares to one of our most basic animal needs...each other.
I'm also bipolar, ADHD, and on the autism spectrum, and I have some well-controlled anxiety issues. I am medicated, so there are rarely any problems.
I have a unicorn tattoo on my right ankle area. I also have a cicada tattoo on my left wrist area, a peace sign tree tattoo on my right upper arm, and a wolf paw tattoo on my left chest area, right above my heart. My left nostril is pierced. My ear lobes are also pierced, but that goes for most women.
I say all this upfront because I'd rather not (for lack of gentler terms) waste my time on someone who will end up being completely opposed to what I stand for, or judgmental.
There are a few other things I left out, and the rest...I will leave up to the people I meet to discover. ;)
I also want to know that you have read this ad fully and completely. I much prefer you answer with a keyword in your message: Tell me what your favorite animal is. That way, I will know that you have actually (hopefully) read all of this.
All in all, I am a pretty open person. Send me a message! I just might reply.
