My self-summary
I characterize myself as positive and cheerful. I am well rounded, in fact on any given day you could categorize me as the:

'Indoorsy' type- puttering around the house in my comfie cozies, cooking, painting or simply relaxing with a good book or my latest project.

'Outdoorsy' type- ripping apart my deck, gardening, or tearing through the wilderness with a backpack and setting up camp.

'Artsy Fartsy' type - painting gigantic canvasses, sewing funky little objects, weaving necklaces, or refinishing antiques

'Serious smarty pants' type- reading, writing, teaching and/or working

On many days I do a combination of the above. I am always looking to try new things, and this is one new thing I am trying...let's see if it works ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Life...well, I have a career in an area I feel passionate about, social justice and political work. I have had many success' in my work life and experiences to date. I want to focus more on my social life and look to the future of having my own family and someone to share in all that life know that whole "finding true happiness" thing, focus on healthy living, shifting gears from all work to more play. I am taking the time to invite the possibility of expanding my life and sharing it with someone else.
I’m really good at
Smiling. I am really good at smiling.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile.

My eyes, my hair, and my over all bodaciousness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: 1984, Oryx and Crake, Book of Negroes, Hunger Games, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo...

How about authors? Barbara Kingsolver, Miriam Toews, Bryce Courtenay, Dave Eggers.

Shows: I watch a lot of British murder mysteries, mini series and comedies...Waking Dead, Vera, Silk, Lewis, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, The Office...
(Just got the Game of Thrones Season One, so feeling like next rainy day I will start a wee marathon and check that out)

Movies: Bridesmaids (chick version of the Hangover...tears rolling down my cheeks funny), Hunger Games, Brave Heart, Gone With the Wind, Alfred Hitchcock films...

Music: Led Zepplin, Modest Mouse, Florence and the Machine, Ben Harper, Jack Johnson...Nina Simone...I love most music. I avoid real extremes like death metal and heavy rap. I use to say no to country, but I have warmed up to it over the years.

Food: I don't like liver, frozen green peas, or raw green peppers. Pretty good with everything else.
Six things I could never do without
My french press
My slippers (winter)/flip flops (summer)
My comfy cozy sweater
My family
My friends
My garden
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I will do when I get really famous and rich.

Travelling to Vancouver Island to visit family, or kicking back with friends/wine (not exclusive), relaxing and planning for the weekend ahead.
