I like: talking, laughing, listening to music, eating, walking, riding bikes, traveling, cooking, reading, doing yoga, exploring, going to the movies, sleeping, singing, working, climbing, getting dressed.
I am a woman and a girl--strong and independent but sensitive to the world around me. Some of my friends tell me I am "complex" and "intense" and that you gotta be a strong dude to hang out with me. I don't know exactly what this means.
Being spontaneous and ridiculous on a regular basis is important. Authenticity matters more to me than anything else. I don't want to change anybody and don't want to be changed. But I do want to have relationships with people who accept and love me, call me on my shit and inspire me to be the best person I can be. I want to learn and grow and laugh hysterically with the people I love.
I recently returned from a powerful trip to Malawi and am especially enjoying my life and the shift that that experience created. I have also picked up indoor climbing and am really loving it! I am definitely looking for good people to climb with. I like to do stuff and I also like to do nothing.
I sometimes have a very loud laugh
Here's the books I've read and loved sort of recently: Zeitoun, Just Kids by Patti Smith, an awesome book of short stories called Things I love about America by Poe Ballentine, Into the Wild, A heartbreaking work of staggering genius, loving frank (historical fiction about frank lloyd wright and the love of his life) middlesex, the brief and wonderous life of oscar wao, i forget what else. I subscribe to The Sun magazine (love) and I also like poems and read books on education. I have recently made going to the library one of my very favorite things to do, again.
currently on my Pandora: Pheonix, thao and mirah, the flaming lips, mum, cafe tacuba, regina spektor, the new pornographers, rilo kiley, wire, os mutantes. I like old-style country music (Loretta Lynn, Gillian Welch), I really love cheesy pop en espaniol and I bust out my old punk rock records from time to time.
movies: I like documentaries and movies that make me think/don't give me a cheap and easy ending. freeway with reese witherspoon is a favorite, eternal sunshine of a spotless mind, american beauty, little miss sunshine, almodovar. I also love a good scary movie.
I am an ominvore. I love all food.
coffee & water
