i'm in a big transitional phase.
i was born and raised in Riverside but have not lived here in almost 10 years. i've just returned after spending the last 6 months working in India, and am excited to spend the summer discovering new things about my childhood home while plotting my next big move.
looking forward to spontaneous day trips around southern CA; tapping into the queer subculture that i had no idea existed in the inland empire (!); picking up my tennis racket and finding some tennis partners so i can get back into it after years of not playing; and experimenting with the Indian food recipes i learned over the last few months.
What I’m doing with my life
trying to take on my Saturn Return as gracefully as possible.
I’m really good at
making people feel at ease, seeing the bigger picture, keeping a
laser sharp focus on the ultimate point of a conversation, mining
the internet obsessively for random tidbits about rachel maddow
The first things people usually notice about me
i'm cute? ;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
leonard cohen, anything by jeanette winterson, all dairy products (the smellier the better), arrested development (though i gave up on the third season after the 2nd episode and am still depressed about it)
The six things I could never do without
dr. bronner's peppermint soap
the freedom to uproot my life and start again on a whim
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my cat, rachel maddow, vrschikasana, how much we're fucking up the planet, being somewhere else.
my ultimate fantasy: an isolated cottage on the west coast of Ireland where i will someday retreat.
On a typical Friday night I am
since i've returned to Riverside, connecting with the baby-loving side of myself that i had no idea existed -- i.e., cooing with lovestruck eyes at one or all of my brand new nieces and nephew.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
sometimes i go to whole foods just for fun, to wander the aisles,
caress beautiful produce, and ogle the cheeses. an even more
private thing that i probably should not be willing to admit: my
response to this question might also apply to the "on a typical
Friday night" one...
You should message me if
you're passionate, you have good stories to tell me, and you're
actually open to the possibility of meeting in person at some point
