My self-summary
balance is key. though i'm an extremist when it comes to some things, i mainly find that i'm

energetic without being obnoxious,
cerebral but not aloof,
open-minded but not gullible,
intellectual but not pretentious,
curious but not nosy.

okay, that last part isn't true. i'm totally nosy.

i'm an ENFP (or INFP) if that means anything to you. good conversations are pretty much my favourite things. i'm a really curious and passionate person, and find that i'm drawn to people that are similar to me in this way, but i am drawn to people dissimilar to me in most other ways. i like having common ground with people, sure, but what i like even more is learning new things and being exposed to different perspectives. i feel that most relationships work best when there's less of an echoing and more of a balancing out... i'm extremely accepting, and would love to be exposed to new hobbies or art forms or experiences or places or interests or lifestyles.

What I’m doing with my life
right now, teaching second grade. i guess i also spend a significant amount of time being active and gymming and hiking and things... i'm pretty addicted to hot yoga while simultaneously being apprehensive about american yoga culture. i like music and coffee and drinking wine and cooking, i appreciate art and writing and books and architecture and gardening, hosting parties and having guests, learning and trying new things. i wish i spent more time dancing, reading, watching plays. i also miss being a student and am thinking about getting another degree.
I’m really good at
not taking slutty pictures of myself and putting them on a dating websites, mainly.
getting the perfect gift.
reading people.
being completely wrapped up in my thoughts so i'm oblivious to my surroundings.
showering and being ready to go in less than 10 minutes.
being cheerful, open-minded, and accepting.
making people feel comfortable.

i'm really bad at obeying speed limits, remembering passwords, playing pool, sitting still... trivia, or anything concerning celebrities or pop culture whatsoever.
The first things people usually notice about me
probably that i'm nice? (though i kind of hate that word) nice meaning cheerful or generous or positive or loving... something like that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
favourites are things i mostly don't understand, because it seems to me like eveything is in constant flux and so our favourites would (or should?) fluctuate all the time... but if i had to pick-

book: salinger- catcher in the rye. i also really like catch 22, a prayer for owen meany, the crying of lot 49, and the great gatsby. when it comes to fiction.

movie: ratcatcher
The six things I could never do without
that's a difficult one... in no particular order:
1. rainstorms
2. ice cold water and steamy hot showers
3. a winding mountain path
4. variety
5. coffee (black (and for the taste, not the caffeine))
6. a good long drive
I spend a lot of time thinking about
lots of things.. it fluctuates depending on what's going on and what (and who) i surround myself with.
On a typical Friday night I am
revelling, mostly (:
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i feel like things being "private" is really contingent on people you know finding out.

that being said, there's not such thing as secrets from strangers
You should message me if
you don't have half-naked pictures on your online dating profile... (:

you want to go to the mountains with me.

you can balance my general mania and reckless optimism.

you know the difference between "your" and "you're".

you want to be my acroyoga partner, need a gym partner, you're not afraid to try hot pilates, want to dance...

or you just want to sit down and get coffee or a drink and chat, or cook dinner together and drink wine.
