My self-summary
A Summary (TL;DR readers): I'm an outgoing, rough-and-tumble, easy-going intellectual with a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. I love nature and my animals, especially my dog Strider. I love the outdoors, hiking, swimming, running, mountain biking, camping, reading, watching TV, socializing with people, drinking coffee, yada yada.

The Novella: I'm not the type of girl to get all squeamish at the prospect of gutting a fish or all weak in the knees after a hard crash from my mountain bike....

Well, crap, the issue I find with creating a profile is that it's simply impossible to find a good stage to represent myself from without speaking from a soap box. Even if I devoted myself to hours of editing and writing and produced a novel, you still wouldn't know the person that I am. Sure, you'd understand the gist of me, but certainly not the nuances. Like my compulsion to engage in intellectual topics, but also be seen as light hearted as I can actually be without giving the impression of bipolarity. How I am most often a leader, but I enjoy when others take the reins without making you see me as traditional or dependent.

Further, how can I know others from only a few paragraphs? I know that as honest as I attempt to be in a profile, that still I've invested time in tailoring it to seem more approachable. But the thing about people is, is that we're messy and imperfect and dynamic. That's what I love about meeting new people, is the chance to get to know the unplanned moments and the unedited versions of people.

So, this entire profile is just a summary of a whole person. You'll get the gist.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working on my masters in folklore at the UO. Primarily, I'm interested in ethnobotany and the supernatural through folklore (both in conjunction with one another and as distinct interests). I go out and conduct fieldwork throughout the Pacific Northwest, working with FisherPoets and others. As far as non-academia, I've been working on getting stronger physically and spiritually. So running trail running, horseback riding, yoga, and meditation.

Honesty, nature, new experiences, my health, my animals, coffee...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How weird human behavior is- I wouldn't be telling the truth if I said I didn't see "the jungle" sort of scenes when I walk into bars and other social establishments.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, locked up in a hole studying, running with my goober of a dog, or all of the above. Oh yes, sometimes I sit on my tush and do just about nothing in a very productive sort of manner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like to rush into relationships. I think it's more natural to be friends first.

Also, I watch K-Drama...
