A not-so-average single chica making her way in the universe. I consider myself fun-loving, laidback, cute, and intelligent. I'm originally from the South, so pardon the accent. Without elaborating too terribly much, I have an eclectic world view and a social conscience.
I'm definitely a bbw, and though I'm getting healthier and losing weight, I'll always be a curvy wench. So if that's your type of woman, you're in luck. LOL
Oh, I also love geeky things like Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Serenity, and Lord of the Rings.
I spent the first 22 years of life in Arkansas, and I have a degree in philosophy and religion from Hendrix College. I also attended Yale Divinity School for over a year -- it burned me out, though, and I didn't finish my degree. I went on to get a certificate in graphic design and worked in the print industry for a number of years. My dream of becoming a sci-fi/fantasy illustrator is still sitting on the shelf, and I'm eyeing it quite hard. These days I find myself stumbling into photography and... the tourist industry! EEEEK.
I'm the quiet type who will shock you with a good, loud laugh when something strikes me as particularly funny. I'm patient, opinionated, smart and spiritual (but I trust science, spiritual is a personal thing and there is no one single TRUTH).
I try hard to be drama-free, and avoid it as much as possible. Life is just too short to sweat the small stuff, so I also tend not to hang with people who fret all the time, diss on other people or take everything as a personal affront. I tend to get along best and show my truest self toward other intelligent, thoughtful, liberal folks. I live in the moment, meditate when I can, and generally focus on having a positive attitude toward life. I believe in building up good karma and avoiding the bad, and even though I might not be best buddies with incompatible people, I have a lot of compassion and understanding towards all Earth's creatures -- even them. All this aside, I still have my rough days when the stress can get to me. I've found that friends are the best remedy for dragging me out of my hermit cave.
Importantly, I am an animal nut, creepy crawlies as well as cute and cuddlies. :D I have three beautiful cats that have been a big part of my life for many years. Yeah, someday I want to have a family and all that jazz, however I can't see myself living a totally ordinary life. I'd love to travel the world! But not by myself. :)
ALSO IMPORTANTLY: I am NOT looking for NSA or polyamorous situations. What I am looking for is a real relationship with the right person. :) And friends. Friends are good, too.
