….I love to have fun. Always up for something new – but I'm shy and fairly timid; but more than happy to be pushed beyond my limits, with a little extra encouragement ;) , or a lot, lol.
....I love to just hang out, I enjoy being in the company of people I care about; as friends, as family, or someone special.
….I go for board games over video games any day but like both, and I like card games. I love going outdoors and doing whatever I can outside, just to enjoy the fresh air and the sunshine, or rain ^-^ .
I'm actually a very big fan of the rain, it's my favorite weather. I’m more inclined to suddenly desire to go outside for a walk in the rain than during a sunny day :P , but I love both!
I'm really wanting to go rock climbing (I haven't done it before, but I like this sort of stuff) and to make it a permanent activity in my life, as well as kayaking and other fun & (slightly?) risky but very active outdoor activities; so if your into those sort of things, please message me! :D We could have a lot of fun, and I could do with your expertise ;) .
….I love the night time, I’m a night owl. But I do love the morning sunshine and nothing makes me feel quite like how the beautiful orange-ish sunshine does at around 7:45am. :P I love sunrises & sunsets, and am happy to watch them over a meal or a romantic conversation or cuddling session ;) .
….I love hanging out with people, being a part of a group. But I'm suuuuper uuber shy, and I'm the kind of girl who clings to someone's arm and kinda hides in his arms in a social setting.
….I also am very into science, especially biology and animals; I’m a documentary watcher and read Science magazines! Whenever I get a chance :) . Love animals, prehistory, and ancient cultures like the Mayans, Aztecs, and Egyptians, as well as the older histories of Native Americans and other peoples, and the stories of their cultures.
.... As for TV, I love nature documentaries related to the stuff I listed above, and also anime (Bleach, Naruo, Spice & Wolf, Deamon King...), and love SciFi & Fantasy! LOTR, Transformers, & the Avengers were awsome! :D There's more listed elsewhere in my profile, under "Intetests" or something like that :p .
....I'm a reader, writer, and TV watcher, but I will take a walk over almost any of those things any day, if I have someone great to do it with! Could go to the 7-11 for smoothies and back ^-^ .
….I do have some disabilities, so if your going to say hi, be sure that you can handle that; gentleness, kindness, compassion, an an ability to be very very empathetic, and being able to be intuitive, are some things that go a VERY long way with me; and the converse is true, too – if you don't have those characteristics as a part of your nature, we won't get along, promise.
….Don't hate on the smileys! :D :p lol.
….Ohh! Im a hugger! You've been warned! :P Lol. But, if that's not your thing, fair enough ^-^ .
On some less happy notes;
….I should say that I do have memory problems, so please don't take offense if I ask a question I've already asked, and if i do it a lot or ask the same thing repeatedly. I promise it has no bearing on how interesting the conversation was, because it happens to all conversations and memories I have, its just a memory problem. - I've (temporarily) forgotten the names of people I knew for years, saw everyday... e_e , I promise, it's not you.
….If we have a good time and we share numbers, I'm really not very big on talking on the phone – I'm a heavy texter, but talking on the phone makes me kinda nervous and stressed. So don't be surprised if I turn down a phone call. But I'm usually up for meeting in person! If calling is imp. to you, I understand, just know that the conversation won't reflect my best.
….I spend a lot of my time de-stressing for my heath, which is nearly always taken for extreme laziness. I'm a person who loves to be active, and when I have more people to have more fun with and to share life and happiness with, my energy will increase quite a bit with the added positive energy; but I do and will still need my recuperation time, so, anyone getting to know me should be aware of this. It's important that this is understood and respected; if you can't do that, then don't bother messaging me, cause we really won't get along – I'll respect Ur health, so U respect mine, too.
That was tensed, concise version; here's the longer one! :D \|/
….As far as my interests go and what I'm doing with myself, well... I had to think about it a while and I came up with some of these these answers while talking with friends ^-^ :
….I started in a rough place. I've had a lot happen, but I've always been looking up and the glass has been half full for me for most of my life. I'm on the up, but there are things I still struggle with, socializing being one of those things, but I promise I won't bite, I'm just pretty shy and I've been told I'm pretty unique, though I'm not really sure how o_o , lol.
…. Currently, work tends to take up a significant amount of my time, I tenwork somewhere between 80 and 120 hours, usually around 88 to 92 or 96; most 2nd shifts, and I've put my hands-on activities on hold so I can make some extra money and still have some freetime ^-^ .
Before, with having been in college (horrible GPA English Major, here!), dealing with some life difficulties at the time, and not knowing anyone in the area, I didn't really get out too much. I just watched Netflix, did hw, and spent time doing something with my hands like knitting or some sort of construction of something (usually while watching tv) with paper... yesssthat's 3-D hollow per statues, or writing my books that I'm working on (I'm not published).
Now I get out more, but I still don't do nearly as much as I'd like to. Work and life keep me busy, but I'm always doing all I can to squeeze out some fun time! And I'm still working on those physical activities, like rock climbing!
.....I'm hoping to find some nice people to hang out with ^-^ - some people out for a good time who also know how to chill; I love cooky and “normal” people alike – so feel free to message me whichever U think U are! :P . I'm on here to change the few-friends and not get-out-much stuff, :) , and to find a great guy ^-^ .
….I was recently going to college, but have since left school for my health and also because of the damage to my grades that my health was causing. I'm going to go back later and finish what I started (since I'm maybe 1 year away from finishing, so I mind as well, though my GPA is absolutely horrid) and then start over again with something new – I'm thinking of following my love and going to a vocational school where I can learn how to work best with large zoo animals – my dream job is working with tigers in a zoo or similar place of living – no, not jumping through hoops at a circus; but I wouldn't mind doing that at a safari – there they've been rescued and might be bread to further the gene-pool, if their breeding “quality” can be verified and there are funds – either way, its a good life for them, when they can't be re-rehabilitated to be released in their natural habitat (too late to learn or not enough habitat available).
I just love working with animals, and I love the big wild ones - they too, need compassion and love, even if they don't exactly return it. This is a big world, and they are a part of it; we all have to live here, so we mind as well take care of what we have left, and try to make this world a better place. And, for me, these animals, I can do it and would love to help them out. One step at a time, right? ;)
….As for hanging out, I'd like to go to bars, but I'm more interested in hanging out/chilling in small groups at someone's house or somewhere relaxed, with or without beers/wine/whatever (won't do drugs though, sorry.), and just relax, doing beer pong, talking about life, playing cards, board games, I'll watch Karaoke [you'll fall over dead if i try to sing, trust me], you know - just something fun... it doesn't have to be these things or anything kiddish its just that I don't have enough experience to list anything else better :) . I'd love to play darts and pool... both take hand-eye coordination, something I like to work on as a skill, it has a certain thrill too it, but I am terrible at the games and with my aim – but I'm a very fast learner with the right teacher or a lot of practice ^-^ .
....Feel free to show me the ropes or to enlighten me to new games and stuff to do! I'm ALWAYS up for something new! Just ask! I love to have a good time, and I am always up for trying something new, life's boring if you don't. But, I love to just hang out and relax with people, too.
….I love the outdoors, especially at night - and I know tag and hide and seek tag at night are very fun... I don't care if they're kid games, they get the blood rushing, lol - and i still think night time foot ball would be good too ;) , if you've got decent natural night vision, especially in the rain! (picture a slow-mo. take as someone's foot hits some extra-slippery mud :P … and everyone will smell like wet-dog, so no worries about sweating up a storm! And there's more to it than all that, lol.). And if your playing hide and seek tag, there are some pretty interesting places to hide ;) when it's dark out. Its also sooo easy to get tangled up with someone or a tree/bush while your running or hiding and get all panicky as whoever's "it" comes after you and you can't get away :p , lol. We played that at my high school.. the Rangers group [military high school; Rangers are a very very VERY muted version of Raiders] did it once while I was in training with them (no, I didn't pass, I couldn't do the crunches), and then a lot of kids in the whole high school did it another time too ^-^ - the school had about 120 kids at any one time, grades 5-12, most (80ish) in high school – only those who were grounded (F-conduct) couldn't come out, we had 95% of the people out on freetime playing it, it was hilarious!
….Moving on from my high school...I love nature and being out in nature, especially at night, and I love animals too :) . I'm a hand's on person, so I'd take rock climbing over an intriguing mature debate of something, but I really enjoy debating stuff too - I'm kinda a natural at debating (no promises for accuracy, though, even though I have all intentions of being accurate).
....I love intellectual conversation, talking about our lives between my friends and I, and simple easy conversation too :) , and any news of the day. Way too much "intellectual" conversation makes for headaches ^-^ , but none at all kinda leaves me starved for something, if that makes sense? Same with the news :p .
….I just love to get out and have fun, lol ^-^ ......And, back to nature, I really like the woods (bug spray!!), at night or during the day, but a walk in the town or a hangout in someone's backyard is wonderful too, and I nearly always prefer nighttime to daytime, but I love both. Sunny days make me sleepy, so when I'm up for a good time I go for the nighttime funtime :) - to me, the best is to start around 2pm, watch the sun go down and wake up from our relaxed stupor for a night of fun after everyone spent the evening settling in – and then everyone goes to bed at 5am! :P Or not at all.
I'm big on camping out in the woods around a big campfire – I'd go for whiskey mixed with a coke and s'mores, if your into that kinda thing; but name something fun and new and I'll try it! No drugs, seriously. But anything else, name it ;) !
….I really want to find people to do physically active outdoors stuff with, namely, biking, rock climbing and proper hiking. No, I haven't done either of the last two before , but I've been itching to since I was 10 or younger - I love using my body and feeling all the muscles work! And working up a decent sweat is healthy :) and leaves you feeling goooood ^-^ . And I love being out in nature just as much.
….I just love to talk and be active with new people [adventure!], and I love it even more with really good friends [excitement!].
….I crave new experiences, anything, really anything. Even if I'm scared out of my mind I'll do them, if I trust who I'm with ^-^ , it's so thrilling that way. And if I won't do it but you KNOW I trust you, then just push me, lol; I'll respect you for it, and trust you more, afterall what are friends for ^-^ if not to be there and help one-another? And, if you know me that well then the experience was worth it, and all the more fun from that extra kick of the push ;) . If U're not sure if I trust you... well, I wouldn't be in that spot with you if I didn't, now would I?
….I'd love to go watch some horse and car races and demolition derbies with someone sometime, so if anyone's up for it, say hi! ;) And I've never seen a greyhound race, but I'd be interested!
On some less happy notes;
….I should say that I do have memory problems, so please don't take offense if I ask a question I've already asked, and if i do it a lot or ask the same thing repeatedly.
What happens is that my memories get broken into little pockets and at any given time I can only remember one or two pockets. So, if I ask you a question we've already had a (niiiceee looong wonderful) conversation about, just give a short sentence that says something about what we talked about to trigger the memory back to the surface, you don't have to repeat everything :) . And I promise it has no bearing on how interesting the conversation was because it happens to all conversations and memories I have, its just a memory problem. - I've (temporarily) forgotten the names of people I knew for years, saw everyday... e_e , I promise, it's not you.
….If we have a good time and we share numbers, I'm really not very big on talking on the phone – I'm a heavy texter, but talking on the phone makes me kinda nervous and stressed. So don't be surprised if I turn down a phone call. I'm just not a big fan. But I'm usually up for meeting in person! If hearing my voice before we meet will make you feel better I understand, just know that the conversation won't reflect my best.
….I spend a lot of my time de-stressing for my heath, which is nearly always taken for extreme laziness. I'm a person who loves to be active, and when I have more people to have more fun with and to share life and happiness with, my energy will increase quite a bit with the added positive energy; but I do and will still need my recuperation time, so, anyone getting to know me should be aware of this.
It's not alone time I need so much as quiet time in the company of kind people, where I can just think, and plan, and settle down about things causing me difficulty. That, and sometimes I need to ask someone else to do something for me because I'll collapse if I get up to do it; so someone might be up and doing stuff while I’m sitting, apparently “relaxing”, but am, in actuality, trying desperately to maintain a modicum of awareness and my health. - It's important that this is understood and respected; if you can't do that, then don't bother messaging me, cause we really won't get along – I'll respect Ur health, so U respect mine, too.
