Family is important to me, and I do like to find a balance between my work, my shared time with my two boys, as well as making new experiences. A lot of my family lives in Tucson and in the surrounding areas, so Tucson really is my home.
Religion is not a bad thing to me, it just isn't MY thing. I still do attend church with my Mother on occasion. I believe in the power of the community, and many church goers do remarkable things with regard to their lives and their community. Plus, I love the sound of a choir. I also am a believer in science though. I suppose being Agnostic is just my way of saying that I am not willing to ascribe a mystical source for things I do not understand.
Politics have been a sore spot for me for a while. It isn't that my man didn't win, it isn't that I am a hater of one idea or another or one side or another. It is quite the opposite. I simply feel that all of this side choosing, name calling, decisions over who is right or wrong, policy slamming, policy repealing, crying over issues that have roots deeper than anyone cares to examine in any fair way, is just manufactured BS to entertain the masses and give then the illusion that they actually have some say in how the world is run. There...I said it. And now that it is said, please know that with that viewpoint, I realized a while back, that spending my energy trying to analyse it and share it with others is pretty pointless. Your political orientation is fine with me, I get along with everyone since I really do believe that everyone has a valid point and interest to bring to the table.
If all of the above has not made you run for the hills, your next question might be...what is Nikki doing here on OkCupid?
So what I am seeking by being here...is someone that honestly enjoys conversation, isn't trapped in a particular way of thinking, longs to go do...STUFF! Ha ha! Yes, I love to just be active, to eat well, see and learn new things, and have a hand to hold and a friendly face to smile at.
