If I were an animal, I'd be an elephant: I'm intelligent, have a focused, serious side, and I cherish company and community.
I enjoy crafting art projects, reading non-fiction books about stuff I want to learn, hanging out with friends, teaching, planting, dancing, biking, painting, people-watching, public transiting, bodega cat-spotting, and laughing (who doesn't? But I laugh a lot, so I think it's relevant to say here). I love to play! A sport, a game, being a goofball, rollerskating, you name it. Math and art are my favorite things, especially in partnership.
FYI: I've spent this past year battling a rare spinal cancer (chordoma), but I'm in the clear now and not phased by it or upset about it, so you don't have to feel weird about it. I'm still the same upbeat lil gal -- I just have some badass scars now. No, I will not talk your ear off about having cancer, but I'll gladly, openly answer any Qs you have. Just mentioning it here so it's not some weird skeleton in the closet.
I'm delightedly content being just me by my lonesome, but a kindred heart to share the ride with would be icing on the cake.
