I grew up in Washington, moved to Missouri and Arizona for my college years, lived in Seattle the last 10 years and recently moved to the Shoreline/Lake Forest Park area. My kids go to school in Seattle and I work in Bellevue Greenlake and Bothell so I'm all over the Puget Sound on a daily basis usually.
I'm an outgoing bright person, although can be shy and reserved on occasion (used to be afraid of my own voice through school but now I more than make up for it ;)). I try to keep a positive outlook on life and am continually trying to be a better stronger and wiser version of myself. I think self awareness, learning, understanding, connecting with people, and finding joy in the process and in every day is living a full life. Oh and finding at least a little humor in all things. ;)
I try to find the best in those around me...we are all just doing the best we can but we may all be in different places/phases in our lives and who am I to judge. I have a strong belief in what is important to me and how I choose to live my life and what I choose to believe, however I don't feel others need to have the same beliefs as me. Diversity makes for a richer more complex and wonderful world, right? That said, when it comes to a relationship I do have a clear picture of what I'm looking for in a partnership and it is important to that we have a similar outlook on life.
Like all movies except scary, don't understand why people like to be scared on purpose. ;)
Music... Mostly hip hop soul with all sorts of other stuff mixed in...my shazam app is my best friend...I'm always on the hunt for good songs for my classes.
Books: I have several that I try to read but unfortunately reading puts me to sleep pretty quickly so it takes a while for me to get through one...when and if life slows down I'd love to read more.
Friends and family
And Apparently my iPhone
