Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A constant work in progress but not in the Type A must dominate the
world sort of way. My life has been an interesting adventure thus
far and I feel like I am just getting warmed up. Not that I was
ever a real "wild child" but more than ever I feel myself enjoying
settling down into a grounded life. Really enjoying spending time
in my apartment which I find comfortable, soothing and a good
reflection of the care I take in creating the environment where I
live. Also planning for the future but working on shifting my
habits to support a long healthy life. Knee surgery has me
rethinking my preferred exercise which had been running and
unfortunatley so far haven't enjoyed anything I've tried to replace
that. Currently engrossed in my two main hobbies which are cooking
and storytelling. Have a traditional 9 to 5 working with great
people and also starting to plant the seeds to build over time a
way to replace my income and more working for myself. Considering
going back to grad school in the fall at CIIS gettin a Masters in
Anthropology and Social Change. Looking to find (forgive the
cliche) my best friend to share the rest of this Magical Carpet
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Some of this is spelled out in the summary section above. Right now
I am more focused than I have ever been on the traditional elements
of a middle-aged adult such as stability, finding a partner,
creating a comfortable home and thinking about retirement. That
said, I make an effort to maintain balance so I make time for
self-reflection to keep from ending up on the hamster wheel I have
happily avoided up until now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being calm and confident in the face of chaos. Keeping a positive
outlook. Being on time and reliable to keep my word. Continuing to
show up and accept the next challenge.

Honestly I don't know. As often as possible I hope it's my
light-hearted, sometimes sarcastic sense of humor. I get
compliments on my eyes so maybe that.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
At the end of 2012, I had to say goodbye to my best friend and
canine companion of the last 14 plus years. Aside from family,
nothing could have been harder for me to imagine life without. I
miss him but it reminds me that there is nothing truly that I could
never do without. I prefer to notice what I am grateful for now and
to remember with honor everything else.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Creative ways to make mundane things more fun.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually just a happy hour with friends or co-workers and then a
relatively early night. I like to enjoy my weekends so don't tend
to get too crazy on a Friday night.
