After a long year of searching, I'm excited to share I now own a BK pad. It's closer to the city with a fantastic view of lower Manhattan, just a stone's throw from Barclays Center.
For as much as I enjoy the four seasons, I really LOVE the summer (even those real hot, humid days). Not having to wear a jacket, filling up on Vitamin D, I love how the sunshine puts a smile on almost everyone's face.
I am a people person. I have met some of my best friends from serendipitous conversations. I believe in being nice, sharing good karma, greeting everyone with a smile and mindful intention.
Photography is a hobby, a second love to writing. I'm usually the one behind the camera and prefer capturing buildings and candids to portraits and stills. I <3 Instagram! I'm an active participant in life and you are more likely to find me out in the world than at home on the couch or in a movie theatre. Other interests include experimental theater, scavenger hunts, burlesque, pub crawls, poetry slams, scrabble, dancing, karaoke.
I'm here to meet new people, make friends and see where life takes us. If you're interested in connecting ask me a question, tell me something about yourself but please do not send me a novella. I cringe at grammar snafus, misspellings in particular. The lack of attention to details tells so much about a person.
I'm looking for someone to share the adventures and recount the stories. Someone who knows who they are, someone comfortable in their own skin, who doesn't take themselves quite so seriously. I want to LOL with abandonment and feel free and silly when the urge occurs. I want a partner, a friend, a lover to lean on, and into, when the going gets rough and the celebrations are plenty. Could that person be you?
Traveling whenever I can...a few road trips on the horizon, then we'll see what's next...on my bucket list: Belize, returning to antigua, Easter Island, Chile. Looking forward to Hawaii later in the spring and Kenya in 2016.
Cooking, I love entertaining with friends, and host an annual moonlight soiree (this year the view should be spectacular).
discovering fun things to do, I'm a modern day Julie McCoy.
A friend recently pointed out that I have this talent of connecting people places things. I asked her to describe it for me and here's what she said: "It isn't just a matter of being outgoing or easy to talk to, which you are, but you're generous with your friends and networks. Lots of people segment their lives ("these are my work friends", "these are my college friends") but you do a good job of blending the things and people that make you happy. Being a connector also means that you're excellent at reading people very quickly. You notice specific details about someone and then know to hook them up with great events, jobs, and even friends. This makes the people you encounter feel really special."
Books: I am a voracious reader and often find myself reading multiple books at once until one storyline claims victory. I am currently reading faceless killers. I love my Paperwhite and have not given up on the carrying thick books in hardcover--Counte of Monte Cristo, Tibetan Book of Living & Dying. If you are a reader, I highly recommend the GoodReads app to track yourself.
I love browsing independent, off the beaten path bookstores for early editions of Voltaire, Oscar Wilde, Dumas, Eco and Dante.
Music: I <3 live music and karaoke. I try to a attend 2-3 performances a month. I grew up in the 80s, and also love ambient chill and electronica--some favorites include: New Order, Psychedelic Furs, Amon Tobin, Verve, Sade, Patti Smith, Kylie Minogue, Morcheeba, chicane, Owl City, Matchbox20, Maroon5, Train, The Script, OMD.
TV: I've canceled my cable and opting for the high speed internet route of roku & apple TV. I'd much rather be out in the world then glued to a flat screen--although I am a die hard fan of person of interest, NCIS, criminal minds & Blue Bloods.
Food: I pretty much eat across all food groups with Seafood, Italian, Moroccan, Thai being my favorites.
where to go on my next vacation.
what I should consume next (book, music, art).
where the clutter comes from--I feel like I spring clean in all seasons, why is that?
