My self-summary
A friend was telling me about all the tests on here and how fun it was...so here I am. I got on to see if I'm nicer than most people....hahaha. In my daily/weekly routine I rarely meet men in my daily/weekly routine that I have things in common with AND are attracted to, so maybe this is the way to go? I suck at this kind of thing- summing up all the important things about myself in a paragraph. I am much better with live communication!
What I’m doing with my life
Number one for me would be my three boys. I have them 30% of the time and I make the most of that time, I don't multitask or schedule other things during our time. I'm a hairstylist and have been for over 20 years. I love what I do, it never feels like work. I love hair, fashion, make-up...I'm a "girly" girl in that way (don't mistake that for high maintenance-that I definitely am NOT). I love the outdoors...hiking, camping, fishing. I've never been a star athlete but have fun playing sports and am down for trying any. Most recently a friend and I have been goofing trying to play tennis. (totally fun!) I joke that I'm a bad girl gone good. I have lived through many things, and learned many things as a result :)
I believe my life and the people in it are a gift, and I try to remember that daily.
I’m really good at
Reading people. Small talk, social situations. Motivating people. My work. Being a Mom. Math. Finding the good in even the worst situations..I'm an optimist 99% of the time
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically-my smile. Personality- I'm kind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Me talk pretty one day-David Sedaris, On the road- Jack Kerouac, She's come undone- Wally Lamb, Dharma Punx- Noah Levine..to name a few.
I could say a lot about music, I will try and keep it short....
Music...I was a punk rock teen and still love 80's-90's punk. Rancid, Clash, Distillers, X, Angry Samoans, Pixies, RHCP, Sleater Kinney, Elliott Smith, The Hives and The Vandals are on heavy rotation currently. Sometimes I wanna dance and will shake it to radio pop/dance...I like ALL music with the exception of country. I don't hate it, but can only do small doses. Music feeds the soul and if it is irrelevant to you then you are definitely not for me.
Movies..Life is Beautiful, dumb and dumber, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, 40yr old Virgin, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, Midnight in Paris, Annie Hall, Vicky Christina Barcelona, Napoleon Dynamite, Madea movies, 80's John Huston flicks.....Are you thinking I'm all over the place here?! I am, I like most types of movies, just depends what I'm in the mood for. Usually it's to laugh, however I remember the serious movies as time goes on.
Food....not a vegetarian but don't eat meat too often-couple times a month. It's easier to say what I don't like... Processed food-the more fresh and simple, the better.
Eggs cooked any way besides hard-boiled, mushrooms (ALL kinds) and......umm......oh capers! what ARE capers anyways?! gross! So a mushroom omlette sprinkled with capers is definitely out! I like most all foods, I guess spicy is at top, then seafood.
Six things I could never do without
my kids and family
my friends
playing outdoors
creative outlet/work
paying it forward (really the secret to happiness..true story ;)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
style. hair, clothes, make-up. New ideas-old ideas...making old things new. What makes people behave one way or another. Better ways to do things. When I have free time (it's limited) I try to NOT think about to much. My goal on a daily basis is to live and stay in the present moment, to enjoy the here and now.
On a typical Friday night I am
rushing from work to be with a large group of friends who get together at the same time and place every Friday...or if I wound up working late, or working without a break all day, I will be home having dinner, ice-cream and a bath. I work Saturdays, so I never do late Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I've already divulged plenty here ;)
You should message me if
You have a picture...if you are on a dating site and DON"T have a picture???!! Well that's just shady in my book.
You are NOT married, there's not anyone who would kick your ass if you say your "single", truly only drink occasionally or not at all, and are looking for friendship. I'm looking for a friend first, and it would be fantastic if that turned to more. I've done the more first and it hasn't worked out for me.
The two of us
