My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well hey there, if you're profile surfing, welcome. I hope your stop over can be fun.

I'm pretty self-aware and actively work on being the best version of myself. I do not like high drama, passive aggressiveness, or clingyness, it does nothing for me in either direction.

I don't see the world as good guys and bad guys, just a bunch of people trying to do their best with what they got.

I'm lucky enough to have spent a lot of time flyin all over the world on big adventures on my own- having lots of fun. Changing the adventure a bit to add another person sounds pretty rad. Just moved back to the bay after a 7 year east coast sabbatical. Boy am I happy to be home in Cali. I figured it was high time I start lookin for a relationship with a smart, strong person who has a healthy dose of emotional intelligence (cue the sighs of relief from worried Tía's and friends).

Just an fyi, my name isn't nina but you can't get the ñ in a screen name, so my non-ethnic brethren often launch right in and I figured I'd help you out.

And fellas, I'm probably not your girl if you have a shirtless picture or take an obscene amount of selfies. Do you. Just not the bait for this fishy, lot's of fishy's out there though, so go forth and flirt. Oh and the "Hey sexy" "Hi Baby" thing at the first go, also not a good starting ground. Just giving you the tips here. ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love people and I'm currently training lots of young ones to be leaders and change the world. Not a bad gig. :)

I also acted in a play last year, could read your tarot cards, and knit a scarf. But not all at the same time, cause that would be weird.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Talking. Laughing. Cooking. Relaxing. Enjoying people. Being a nerd. Singing karaoke. Reading the emotional climate of a room. Being infinitely grateful for all my damn privilege and freedom. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I laugh pretty loud and love laughter. No really. I love, love, love, love laughter.

I guess recently, also that I have a small pink streak in my big curly lion-mane-esque hair. (I was younger then everyone in every professional room I was in since I was like 21, so now that I'm in my 30's I figure I have nothin to adjust for)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm definitely a creature of habit. So I like what I like and I delve often.

I do like me some good (and at times bad) tv. I crave specific episodes of The West Wing. The Women of Qumar, Noel, The Supremes, and Celestial Navigation are my favorite episodes (yes, it's that serious).

I do have a soft spot for The Mindy Project. Yay for women of color actually being on TV! The Big Bang Theory (just picked that up recently), and bless Shonda Rhimes for Scandal, really.

Movies are good, but I find most tv writing can be much better with a greater diversity of characters. I'm a sucker for a comic book or sports movie.

I absolutely love music. The new Sam Smith CD has me acting like a teenager, staring at my ceiling and contemplating my life choices. haha

All genres - for the most part. I have a particular soft spot for RnB, Hip-Hop, Rock, Salsa and Bachata. (I guess I have many soft spots)

My favorite book is "Eleven Minutes" by Paulo Coelho. It's a fairytale about the intersection of your spirit, heart, and body told through the eyes of a prostitute. Ta-nehisi Coates is one of my favorite writers. I'm a reformed journalism student. I'm sad that journalism is what it is and think magazine writing does a better job of creating a accurate snapshot of events.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family (my brother and cousins rock, growing up around a lot of dudes makes you a different girl)
My friends (I'm blessed to have really amazing people in my world - this is not an exaggeration, kind of mind blowingly great people)
My culture/history/family story (we carry it with us)
My Droid (more for the music on it, but gotta love having a mini computer)
My career
A good laugh

So I'm sneaking #7 here, I'm grateful for the existence of Big Sur. It's breathtaking.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People and how they work. How blessed I am. What comes next. How to change the world. Why does bacon taste so good?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I love a good dinner party. I'm often having friends over for a meal, a drink, and a laugh. Nothing makes me happier than creating a warm/fun night. And now that I'm living in the land of eternal warmth and sunshine, I throw a mean backyard party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can be a major navel gazer. I can lay in a park or on the beach and think and contemplate for marathon amounts of time. In fact, I just did that on a mountain top overlooking the ocean. Truly magical time on my own. I might be just a liiiiittle too happy with my independence but am genuinely working on it.
