balance is key. i'm
energetic without being obnoxious,
cerebral but not aloof,
open-minded but not gullible,
intellectual but not pretentious,
curious but not nosy.
okay, that last part isn't true. i'm totally nosy.
i'm an ENTP (or INTP) if that means anything to you. good conversations are pretty much my favourite things. i am drawn to people dissimilar to me... i like having common ground with people, sure, but what i like even more is learning new things and being exposed to different perspectives. i feel that most relationships work best when there's less of an echoing and more of a balancing out... i'm extremely accepting, and would love to be exposed to new hobbies or art forms or experiences or places or interests or lifestyles.
besides that i teach it, i'm pretty addicted to hot yoga while simultaneously being apprehensive about american yoga culture.
i like music and coffee and drinking wine and cooking, live music, road trips, visiting friends, i appreciate art and writing and books and architecture and gardening, hosting parties and having guests, learning and trying new things. i wish i spent more time dancing, reading, watching plays. i also miss being a student and am thinking about getting another degree.
selecting the perfect gift
losing my debit card.
finding something to be grateful for.
running in heels.
writing straight without lines.
being completely wrapped up in my thoughts so i'm oblivious to my surroundings. (which makes other people think i'm either pissed or just a surly bitch)
giving people the benefit of the doubt
accepting other perspectives.
telling twins apart.
driving. (even though I'm a girl)
beating the sun in foot races.
anticipating people's needs.
showering and being ready to go in less than 7 minutes.
making the best of it.
making people feel comfortable.
i'm really bad at
obeying speed limits,
doing things slowly,
telling how big a container is needed to put leftovers into,
trivia, or anything concerning celebrities or pop culture whatsoever.
(people are mainly inarticulate.)
book: salinger- catcher in the rye. i also really like catch 22, a prayer for owen meany, the crying of lot 49, shogun, ishmael, watchmen, the wind up bird chronicles, being and time, thus spoke zarathustra, the alchemist, the animal that therefore i am, and both mourning and melancholia and the origin of the work of art (though they're, to be fair, not really books).
02. ice cold water and steamy hot showers
03. sinuous (or labrythine) mountain paths
04. lungs-full bubbles in champagne
05. black coffee (i sometimes need it to sleep)
06. a good long drive (most especially with the music up and the windows down)
07. the fresh cut grass smell of spring
08. dancing on rooftops
11. prime numbers
that being said, there's not such thing as secrets from strangers
you can balance my general mania and reckless optimism, or just keep up. (:
you know the difference between "your" and "you're".
you want to be my acroyoga partner, need a gym partner, you're not afraid to try hot pilates, want to dance...
or you just want to sit down and get coffee or a drink and chat, or cook dinner together and drink wine, go stargazing, dance on the roof, or head up to the mountains and watch the city lights.
