My self-summary
The things that are important to me are not things at all, but people. I truly appreciate my friends and family and spending time with them. I have a strong sense of empathy and a strong sense of humor. I like to really look at the world around me and relate as well as I can to other people's experiences, but I can also see the humor in things. I am socially conscious and accept people from all walks of life. I am a thinker, a hippy (i use this term loosely,) a liberal, a lover of music, a true blue friend. As a side note, I also like to write when the mood strikes. Sorry about the rambling. :)

I am compassionate, humorous, and thoughtful.
What I’m doing with my life
I have done some different things from working with at-risk youth as a Case Manager to various roles in radio at one time. I did promotions, on-air/engineering, and produced commercials. Each role has pros and cons, and they were all worth doing. I do hope to get back to working with kids again someday, and also considering commercial production again. Currently unemployed, but hope to turn this around again as I am looking to go back to school and get back on track.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, writing (on occasion), obsessing :) (more frequently), knowing the lyrics to almost any song that plays and of course singing along to it, interviews and being a good friend. This list will grow. That is my mission! Pretty low expectations for myself eh?
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look like someone they know. I just have one of those faces. I am half Mexican and half Welsh/Jewish(unknown origin). I can pass for just about any race. People always think they know me from somewhere. Sometimes it is right on the money though because I went to 10 different schools in one city, so I have crossed paths with a lot of people. However, when I do tell them that I didn't go to the school they think they know me from or that I don't know of the concert they saw me at, but that I hear it so often it is almost laughable they never look like they believe me. Weird.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love dark humor-David Sedaris rocks my world, Augusten Burroughs can be cool and I also like Laurie Notaro. Ever since Harry Potter came out I have also gotten into fantasy books (guilty pleasure). Another book I love, and I think is beautifully written, is called The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

I love all sorts of movies including dramas,comedies, suspense and a good musical. Some of my favorite flics are American Beauty, Opposite of Sex, War of the Roses, Stardust, Rear Window, Big Fish, The Princess Bride, Little Miss Sunshine, Amelie, Juno, Dan in Real Life, The Devil's Backbone, Charlie Bartlett, La Vie En Rose, Chicago, Yentyl, The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, and Grease. I am sure I left something sorry to the forgotten. :) I am not that much into action movies, but there are exceptions like the latest Batman movies, or on TV I really enjoyed that one and only season of the Bionic Woman.

As far as music goes I love the 80's and Americana the best, but I really like just about anything from Old School Country to Old School Rap...and did I mention I know the words to almost every song out there? :) Here is a list of some of the artists I like: ABBA, Aimee Mann, Amos Lee, Amy Winehouse, The Asylum Street Spankers, Spoon, Billy Joel, James Morrison, Bruce Sprinstein, Brett Dennen, Cake, Caroline Herring, Cat Stevens, Black Eyed Peas, Colbie Caillat, Counting Crows, Duffy, Fiona Apple, Flobots, Landon Pigg, George Michael, Joan Jett, Madonna, Michael Jackson (old stuff), Queen, Ray LaMontagne, The Doobie Brothers, Sting, Patty Griffin, Run DMC, Snoop Dog, The Guess Who, Ambrosia, Sara Bareilles, Teddy Thompson, The Weepies, Dionne Warwick, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, America, The Bodeans, KT Tunstall, Andy Gibb, Johnny Cash, Regina Spektor, Bob Marley, Bread, The Carpenters, Dolores O'Riordan, Damien Rice, Dayna Kurtz, Indigo Girls, Aretha Franklin, Sarah McClachlan, Lisa Loeb, Joan Osbourne, Emilie Mover, Raul Malo, Shelby Lynn, Paul Simon, Tori Amos, Belinda Carlisle, Tracy Chapman, and U2.That list is a little funky eh?


Off topic-great shows are The Flight of the Conchords and the Sarah Silverman Show. I have also gotten into sci-fi type dramas like Fringe, Battlestar Galactica, My Life on Mars. I was a hesitant recruit on Battlestar Galactica, but it is admittedly pretty adictive. I also watch (gulp) All My Children! Nowadays I am digging a lot of comedies like Glee, Parks and Recreation, Modern Family, United States of Tara (comedrama), but also like the dark dramas like FlashForward and hopefully V (the jury is out on this.)
Six things I could never do without
All I need is the air that I breathe and to love you :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
relationships, the world and how it could be better, and the importance of open and honest communication. I also spend a lot of time thinking about sleep. I think about how much I am going to need to be functional the next day, and I try to come up with ways to ensure that I reach that magic amount. I should just skip all this work and start downing some Nyquil right?
On a typical Friday night I am
If I am not out listening to music, at a club or maybe at a movie, then maybe I will rent some movies or read. Oh yeah, if you want to talk game night folks, I will play a mean game of Sorry! I do like the telly, and catch up on that late at night too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am far from perfect; Mistakes have been made. No amount of questions will really give insight into who I am or who I want to be, but I try very hard to be honest and that ever elusive good. I am pretty hard on myself. I have set expectations about being as good (there is that word again) a person as possible, and I don't always meet those expectations regardless of my efforts. As far back as I can remember I have been this way.
You should message me if
You want to make a friend, you think my stories in my journal are funny, interesting or strange.. Write if it seems that we have a good amount in common and might have things to talk about. I think you should write me. That is a challenge. Basically, I am daring you..
The two of us
