My self-summary
My two favorite 'f' adjectives are 'fun' and 'fucked up,' but in the most wholesome way possible.

...

I'm a very serious person, although my sense of humor is quite flip and sarcastic. Wry, if you will.

I'm also very intense. I know what I like, I'm very expressive - but then again, I'm happiest at home spending time with the pup, working a bit in the garden, watching movies, or doin somethin in the kitchen.

I'm a whole mess of contradictions, but I think the most striking is that I, apparently, come across as tough and salty, and yet I'm probably the biggest marshmallow. I love fiercely and I take great pride in doing right by people. If you're sick, I will bring you soup. If you're feeling down, I will do my best to pick you up. I'm a big softie at the end of the day.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a teeny tiny internship at a city cable station operating cameras, setting up mics, running the teleprompter.

I've been working as a nanny for the last five years, and have a lot of kids in my life that are the best. But I'm also looking for an office job because, damn it, I want my nights and weekends back.

I'm learning to backpack and just finished my first trip - it was about 15 miles (we immediately, literally, got lost) and 1500 ft of elevation. I can't wait to do more. I also just built my own skateboard and, fuck it, I want to learn how to rock climb. I go out to Joshua Tree every year and the Hall of Horrors course looks hella fun.

Oh, and I've been putting together a gallery wall in my living room (because I'm so original), and I've found a lot of joy in going through all of my double exposures and postcards sent from friends and collecting all this material. It's been fun
