My self-summary
People I know have described me as:
Gullible, funny (but this is strange to me because I usually have no idea that I've just made an insanely funny joke until people around me laugh), kind, sensitive, demanding, generous, conscientious (to a fault?), Self aware, open, communicative, hardworking, wary/untrusting, narcissistic, nurturing, weird, creative.

A few of those Meyers-Briggs style online tests have told me that I am this:
INFP (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving)- "Questor". High capacity for caring. Emotional face to the world. High sense of honor derived from internal values.

When things are balanced in all aspects of my life, I feel best.

I like dates at parks or museums rather than movies or restaurants.

I hate being cold.

I'm not much of a drinker.

Philly is pretty great, but I often wonder if this is really where I belong. I might try another city or two or four before I decide where I really want to be.

Taller-than-me-guys are more my preference, but I'm open. Fitness and care with eating habits are important to me. I want to live as long as I can and feel as good as I can while I'm alive, and I would hope that someone I was with would want to be around for as long as they could too.
What I’m doing with my life

I tend to take life and my work very seriously. I don't understand when people write "I try not to take things too seriously..." Why wouldn't you, you are alive, this is it. I understand not putting too much pressure on one's self, but, I strive to do the best that I can each day. I'm doing what I love, and I do it with all due seriousness.
I’m really good at
Making jewelry- art.
Manual dexterity.
Parallel parking.
The first things people usually notice about me
My (at times, brutal) honesty. I say what I think, when I need to say it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: F Scott Fitzgerald novels, Tolstoy (the stories--skipping over the religious tangents), Classics in general, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Milan Kundera, Anything about a period of time or a setting that is different than real present day life. Right now I'm reading Ovid's The Metamorphoses. I much prefer reading to Tv or movies.

Poetry: Sylvia Plath, Ranier Maria Rilke, Walt Whitman.

Music: Beck, Bjork, Jack White. Anything live and acoustic- jazz, bluegrass, I have a weakness for drum circles (just watching, and listening...They are at the park all the time.)

Food: Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, Mexican, anything spicy. I like Vegetarian and Vegan food, but I am not committed, and I'll eat meat when I feel like I need it.


A note about TV and video games, I'm not a fan...but only because I get sucked in and I feel like there's way too much real life out there to experience (the girl typed into her online dating profile...). When there is a tv around, especially if there is cable...I can just sit down and waste time away, and that's not how I like to spend my time.
Netflix, though...sometimes I will put something on netflix before I go to sleep. Somehow I don't really feel that counts as TV...because I can watch what I want when I want... and there are no commercials.
The six things I could never do without
Hot running water
A warm place to sleep
A hair pin or tie or pencil/pen
A place to be alone when I need to be
Good friends
food, water, shelter, safety...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, the steps in between, what I should be doing today-right now.

Hypothetically, If I fall in love with a man who is older than me (which, right now, I prefer), he will probably die first and I will be alone when I am old (which I dread). However, If I fall in love with a younger man (who always seem immature to me), we will probably die around the same time, because women tend to live longer than men. And, which scenario bothers me more?
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably working in my studio. Maybe at home watching a movie?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
?? I dunno...
You should message me if
you feel like it.
