I'm kind of a dichotomy - in that I have some seemingly disparate personality traits/interests that exist at the same time. Ok, I have a bunch, so maybe I'm a multichotomy. Or have multiple personality disorder. Or are just well balanced. You decide. What does this mean? Well, it means things like:
Although I've had years of formal dance training (and am a pretty good dancer) I trip over curbs all the time. Sometimes I trip over air.
My opinions are well-formed, but also malleable. I respect the hell out of people who can challenge my current perspective and change it, cause that's how growth occurs. Factual support or rationale usually helps.
Generally rather energetic, I also take a mean nap.
I'm kinda quirky and creative, but also stable and practical.
Sometimes I drive an SUV and sometimes an old Mercedes that runs on vegetable oil (yup, the exhaust does smell like french fries).
Respectful and supportive of all lifestyle choices, (we won't gel if you're not), I also adore irreverent and "nothing is sacred" humor. Isn't that a form of expression that should be respected as well?
Exploring my world is mandatory for me- travel, local cultural events etc., but from a base of stability. I own a duplex in Silver Lake and have lived here 10 years, and have a core group of friends for over 15 years.
While I have lots of stuff, I know I could sell my house with everything in it, and be fine with that. Possessions are incidental, not integral to who I am as a person.
Pretty patient with most people, I don't suffer flakes or fools gladly. Flakiness seems to be just a different version of self-absorbed & disrespectful.
Being in nature and the outdoors inspires me like nothing else...but I'm really over looooong 10 day camping trips where I'm sleepin' on rocks with no shower. Done it. Over it.
I mostly eat healthy, (one friend calls me "the kale queen") but sometimes a grilled cheese and bourbon hits the spot.
So, for me, variety is the spice of life. Cause without it, life would be very bland, and I don't want my life to taste like cardboard or styrofoam packing noodles.
