My self-summary
I am a super silly, assertive yet laid back yogini, bike-sexual looking to meet some badass gal pals. It's easy to meet guys here, but where are all the goddesses hiding?? I know you're out there!

I am a fairly recent transplant from CO but my heart has lived in the PNW for much longer. I have come here seeking fertile ground and to join this maker's Mecca.

Who wants to go on a bike ride and make some crafty projects?! Or learn how to identify and harvest medicinal wild herbs?

I'm also not opposed to reading dates at tea shops...
What I’m doing with my life
Saving the world one tickle fight at a time!

Just kidding, tickle fights are serious business and I would not engage in one without prior written consent.

Although you never know.. One Halloween I did dress up as the tickle monster and went out on a rampage. The laughter-cries of innocent bystanders could be heard for miles around!
I’m really good at
- Working/playing with my hands

- Giving/receiving smiles

- Navigating around new cities (With or without Google maps)

- comforting a friend in need

-Losing bookmarks while reading in bed, regardless of any specific effort not to

- Singing along to guitar solos

- making jewelry and costumes

- Beer bongs... What can I say, it's like riding a bike, not something you easily forget how to do.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm really trying to shed the delusion that I will ever really know what people think of me, so I don't know what people first notice about me.

I can say, though, the first things I notice upon meeting new people might reveal the first things people may notice about me:

- I like when people laugh easily and smile with their whole face
- I love when people give genuine hugs and handshakes
- I appreciate when people hold eye contact and actively listen
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My current faves:

Music: Animal Eyes, Townes Van Zandt, and new Radiohead

Book: The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan

Podcast: The Superwoman Chronicles (yes, you should check it out.)

Supplement: Cordyceps Mushrooms and B complex all day!

Food: Mangos or Pineapple (I just got back from Maui and can't get enough.)

Entertainment: the bizarre thing we call the political process and the ensuing media shit show..
The six things I could never do without
1. Family/Community
2. My bicycle
3. Multipurpose pocket tool
4. Yerba mate lattes
5. Nature
6. A well stocked kitchen with sharp knives.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to evade the deep seated habits I gained from my parents. How many trees and flowers will I learn to identify this spring? Should I paint more colors on my bike? How can I cultivate and spread hope for humanity. ...Mangos. Wow, that [moss, cloud, tree, moon, flower, rainbow] is beautiful!!
On a typical Friday night I am
I really enjoy doing a lot of different things in my leisure time.
I love to:
- see live music; blues, jazz, rock, heavy metal, experimental, psychedelic, reggae, punk, ska, funk/soul, instrumental/classical, bluegrass, electronic dancey dubsteppy sticky stuff. I love music!
- see plays or stand-up comedy
- go to museums or libraries
- go dancing (preferably something funky!)
- go hiking [in the rain, too]
- go on bike rides of all sorts, I love this city and its robust bike/pedestrian infrastructure
- attend gallery openings/street fairs (being around people and socializing in those settings is my jam)
- throw dinner/dance parties (my roommates are super fun)
- take bubble baths
- get out of town for a weekend camping/backpacking (or glamping, hah, I just like to get outside)
- take photography adventures
- make functional crafty projects with a variety of mediums
- work on bikes
- participate in group fitness/wellness classes
- cook super dank meals at home
- kick it with my family
- go mushroom hunting
- I lovelovelove learning and doing new things- so hit me up and let's go play!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The reward center in my brain has entitlement issues..
