My self-summary
Originally my self-summary was all "I don't like people, so don't talk to me." Friends and strangers alike seemed to have a problem with this and urged me to rewrite it.

This is the rewrite.

I spent the better part of my formative years basking in my fat-girl nerdy-arty-weirdness, knowing that I was smart and not having to prove it to anyone, writing all kinds of checks with my mouth that my butt never got a chance to cash. Thusly, I never fine tuned my flirting skills nor learned the fine art of dating. Look up "late bloomer" on Wikipedia and my picture should be there. I can't think of any friends of mine who are not involved in creative endeavors either as professionals or amateurs, meaning that I don't necessarily surround myself with the most well-developed group of people. But they get me and that's what I need. I clean up nicely, have the flirtation skills of a 4th grade boy and I'm likely to tell you "no" just out of habit. I'm a giver and I tend to do what I want because I can.

I am intelligent, honest, and a volcano
What I’m doing with my life
I am a working actress. I sing, act, write, dance, direct and sew. I like travel and as a result I try to learn a little bit of a lot of languages. A few summers ago I learned how to read and speak Greek, but I don't always understand what I'm saying. I'm trying to rationalize going back to live on an island there for a bit. It's quite a beautiful country. I'm also trying to teach myself conversational Spanish and French, which is easier because there isn't a whole new alphabet to learn.
I quit my day job because it was killing me softly. I still work but it's doing the things I want to do so there is less money involved. For a while I even took up being a pirate (the sailing kind) as a job choice.
I’m really good at
I'm an awesome actress, and I'm a great singer. I dance but sometimes reluctantly. My artistic director says that I've got a kind of cult following doing short form improv which I could take or leave but it's a great ego boost. I have composed some music on my computer for shows, but nothing fancy. I write for fun, mostly short stories, some train of thought and now musicals and plays. I mentor kids, also for the ego boost, and like to believe that I've influenced and changed (or maybe saved) some lives. I used to do karate and I just recently got into stage combat and sword fighting. I'm a good thinker and listener. I love to play chess and I have played international champions and held my own.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my boobs if I'm in a low cut shirt, my smile. Not necessarily in that order. Oh, and I'm funny. Like that dark sardonic wit kind of funny.
I just got contacts and people who have known me for years are all of a sudden saying "whoa, you've got eyes!"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love reading. I go back and forth between pop culture/what's "in" now books and classics, old and modern. I'm a Harry Potter fan. I also love Christopher Pike, The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield, Shakespeare, The Hitchhiker's Trilogy by Douglas Adams, Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk, and Illusions by Richard Bach. I think Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés may have preserved my sanity in the summer of 2014. I also believe that I can learn how to do anything if I read enough about it so I have a lot of Idiot's Guides and Books for Dummies, although I am neither.

I listen to all music, except for maybe 80's hair and gross out bands. I work and play in theater so I listen to a lot of showtunes. I also like Top 40 and Pop. I've got a Pandora station with Prince, Stevie Wonder and more R&B oldies; another one with boy bands, 90's alternative music; and a third with P!nk, Lady Sovereign, and Dresden Dolls.

Fight Club is among my most top favoritest movies ever, it speaks to many parts of my spirit (I enjoy the book as well). Also on the list of faves are How To Train Your Dragon, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Dorian Gray fascinates me. I watch TV in huge bursts in the colder months, not so much in the summer. It's mostly background noise a lot of the time. I prefer to play old school 8-bit Nintendo games.

I come from a family of eaters, and so I'm a foodie. I like to cook and I'm pretty sure I do it well. I really enjoy making desserts, and I'm one of those people who always tries to personalize a recipe. I am currently working on a quadruple chocolate cookie recipe, it's supposed to be soft bake but the cookies keep falling flat and hardening more than I would like. However, to my credit, they still taste brilliant. I'm not a fan of Chinese food (due to food allergies, yes I'm one of those people) but I do love Mexican, Italian and authentic Greek foods. Mmmm, lamb!
Six things I could never do without
The everyday list-
a best friend
library card
a pet cat
my own personal apocalypse survival guide

The zombie apocalypse list-
bow and arrows (quieter and easier to find more ammo than guns)
food and water
iPod with favorite books and music (when the shit hits the fan I don't want to have to barter for a copy of Harry Potter to read to kids)
a trusted companion
my own personal apocalypse survival guide
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Friends, money, ideas (plot- and characterwise for stories and such) and the next move, which right now is more auditions.
The physics of flying (which I understand) versus the physics and practical application of bicycle riding (which baffles me).
Why it feels so good to scratch an itch.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working or performing or some combination of both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I pick my nose in public. I do not eat the results.
You should message me if
You've read this far and still think that I'll care. Which, you know, I might.
Don't be boring. Boring people suck.
The two of us
