My self-summary
I recently moved back to Delaware after living in Portland, Oregon for two years. I moved back because of my mother's health. I really miss Portland but family is important to me. Will I be staying here for ever? Absolutely not.

Thus far, I've led a great deal of my life by going with my gut. I'm a fairly easy-going person. I love going with the flow and I hate confrontation. That's not to say I'm a complete doormat and I won't stand up for myself when I feel it's worth it, but for the most part I like to let things roll off my back. That being said, I do not tolerate bullcrap or insincerity well. I prefer people to just be themselves around me.

My Briggs Myers' personality type is an INFJ. I think I possess a great capacity to care for others. I'm a very warm and accepting person but I'm also a fairly private person. It is only when I trust someone and value them, that I really open up.

Some of the qualities that I respect the most when I see them in others are kindness, acceptance, loyalty, empathy, thoughtfulness, honesty and a tender heart.

I have an associate degree in animation and a BA in Art History. I greatly value knowledge and learning. My biggest goal was getting my doctorate in Art History, but I do not know if that's what I really want anymore.
What I’m doing with my life
Experiencing new opportunities and figuring out what I want to get out of life.

I really have been trying to further develop my hobbies. I took improvisational comedy classes in Portland. I hope to pick it back up here soon, as well as pursue other avenues of comedy, such as sketch, writing, or stand-up.

I also do art for leisure and have been trying to keep up with that hobby.
I’m really good at
I like to think I can make people feel appreciated, special and accepted. Laughing. Dancing. Cooking. I am fairly proficient in writing. I'm not to shabby at trivia.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What makes things tick or the progression of how something got to its current state of being.

Accessing my behaviors/habits and considering how to be a better person and do the right thing.

Daydreaming and getting stuck in my imagination.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding after a long week; either hanging out with friends or taking it easy at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Apparently I sometimes talk in my sleep and I can't sleep with out the noise from a fan running.
You should message me if
If you don't take yourself too seriously , enjoy having fun, chilling out and are looking for someone to be comfortable around.
