My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
UPDATE: As life and relationships often take twists and turns, a little uncertainty, and a lot of work, I happily find myself partnered with a wonderful man who I met on this very site over a year ago. We are in a monogamous relationship that I hope will last for many years (perhaps predicted by our 99% match?!?). Therefore, I am no longer looking for a romantic relationship, but continue to be open to platonic friendships and activity partners. Plus, sometimes it's just refreshing to hear from someone that this internet dating craziness can actually work! Best to all of you.

I'm always up for a drink after work, someone to go running/jogging/biking/walking with, or just someone who likes to garden.

*****************************************************

I'm inspired by acts of loving kindness, exhilarated by good design and architecture, and deeply moved by the wisdom of the Dalai Lama, Pema Chodron, and Wavy Gravy!

One of the silly sayings I like is "must be present to win" cause sometimes the hardest part is just showing up. Mentally, physically, emotionally.

A big part of my life is my passion for social justice which I am very fortunate to express fully in my job every day... and while my work can sometimes be challenging, it makes me all the more appreciative for what I've got. I represent kids who've been handed the shittiest of hands and I can't even imagine how they've persevered. Sometimes I'm not so sure that I'm helping them enough and this is leading to some burn-out. It's important for me to refuel on weekends!

Absolutely LOVE taking day trips to Pt. Reyes, Santa Cruz mountains, Big Sur, and hiking anywhere! Planning a weekend trip to Mendocino for my grandma's 93rd birthday. She instilled such a love of nature in my bones. The closest I feel to "religion" is in nature.

I love to explore my native San Francisco neighborhoods - yes, I'm a rare gem being born in SF and all.* Recent faves include biking to Flora Grubb Nursery for some Ritual Coffee and some interior design ideas; urban hikes in Potrero or Bernal; going to flea markets and open houses on Sundays just to look at other people's apartments (yes, I'm a voyeur); Humphrey Slocumb Vietnamese Blue Bottle coffee ice cream - OMFG.

Additional quick facts about me: I love art and creative people, and I've been known to express my artistic side by rockin' some pretty awesome Burning Man outfits; I'm not so good with the names of people on TV or the movies, but I appreciate others who are; I love to cook with others (not so much solo) and I love it when others cook for me; I've got some great friends, some of whom helped me with this profile (Hi! - ed.); I love listening to live music, and would prefer to do it at Stern Grove than a crowded bar; I'm quickly moved by the beauty of nature; it's likely that I'd bring you a present or treat "just because".

Basically, I'm a quirky, smiley, petite package with a huge heart and great sense of humor. (and apparently pretty cheesy!)

* So right now I'm living an hour south of SF in San Jose for work. I consider it my M-F dwelling to keep me sane from having to commute every single day but I'm in SF just about every weekend and often evenings. My boyfriend lives in SF and I'm often there on weekends. However, things can get lonely down here in San Jose. I would love to make friends who want to have an activity partner for exercise, yoga, gardening, art, or just having dinner down in the South Bay during the work week. I live in an awesome converted water tower/cottage down here with an orchard in the backyard and it's a pretty sweet place to come home to when I'm exhausted from work. I'd like to entertain here more often.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day I represent kids in the foster care system. By night I secretly plan my escape to a career of interior design and landscape architecture. On the weekends I go outside and get crafty.

But we shouldn't identify ourselves by our careers. Just because I don't let my freak-flag fly in court amongst the civilians doesn't mean it's not a core part of who I am. Think Superman.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at making kids laugh. And grown-ups too. And listening and telling you the truth when no one else will. And standing up for people. And organizing a Burning Man camp. I'm a pretty amazing organizer (you should see my sock drawer)!

What I hope to be really good at soon: sewing; building my own interior design business; training for marathons; belly dancing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, my laugh, and my snarky sense of humor (which is really my way of testing how much I'll like you).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

That one with what's his name, where that guy and girl went to that place...I seriously NEVER remember the names of songs or artists or movies. On my bookshelf you'll see Howard Zinn, Barbara Ehrenreich, Beth Lisick, Augusten Burroughs, David Sedaris, Eric Schlosser, Michael Pollen, Anne Lamott, Michael Moore, and Mark Bittman. Lots of books about cacti and succulents, Thug Kitchen, design books, and picture books. What.
Actually, looking at my bookshelf right now I'm thinking two things: 1) I have tons of amazing books, and 2) I should read more of them! Sprinkled among the books are my favorite movies such as "Jesus is Magic" (I HEART Sarah Silverman!!!) and Superbad (Jonah Hill, you out there?).

I don't have a tv, but it's cause I'm cheap, not for any ethical/new-agey/I'm-better-than-you reasons (Note: I may be better than you.) Currently obsessed with Transparent, GIRLS, OITNB, Louis CK, and Portlandia, although "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is probably the closest any TV show will get to nailing my sense of humor. I just adore Carrie Brownstein, Louis CK, Marc Maron, Jenny Slate, and Margaret Cho! P.S. Margaret Cho loves me.

Love flipping through the glossy pages of Dwell and ReadyMade for fun. How come every time I read a pretty magazine I want an airstream?

Music-wise, The Tuneyards, The Julie Ruin, Double Dutchess, Radiohead, The Magnetic Fields, The Shins, Kimya Dawson, Ozomatli, Ryan Montbleau Band, Regina Spektor, Iron & Wine, Gillian Welch, Rufus Wainwright, Paul Simon, India Arie, Blackalicious, Belle & Sebastian, Cibo Matto, Amy Winehouse, DeVotchKa, some (but not all) Playa fare, anything booty-shakin'-licious!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Human touch.
Laughter.
Walking shoes.
My iPhone (god, I hate myself for drinking the kool-aid).
Sushi, and the baked sea bass & mango CRACK from Sushi Zone (shh - it's a secret).
My family (yes, they're on the list but they're after sushi).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make over all of my friends' dwellings. How to get my own place on apartmenttherapy.com. How to treat people well - first for myself, then on a global level. What the point of it all is. Where I should hike next. Photography.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Honestly, I'm usually pretty beat by Friday night and just want to relax, work in my garden, watch a movie, or read. I prefer taking it easy on Friday so I can get up early on Saturday and head up to SF, down to Santa Cruz, or wherever and have a full day!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once literally set my ass on fire on a first date. You can't take me anywhere!
