S P E C I A L
I want someone that I can learn from- someone I can grow with - someone who isn't afraid to be challenged or be challenging - someone interested in communicating. Someone I am better because of knowing. Someone who will let me love them unconditionally for as long as we can stand to sit next to each other.
I spend time with people I want to love forever - and I will do everything in my power to make those in my life happy. I try to communicate as honestly and authentically as I can.
Judgment is not a part of anything I need to do and I work relentlesly at understanding all things - the good things, the hard things, the dumb things the simple things. I trust that obstacles are opportunities. And I believe my instincts.
I have an obsession with British television and rehearse all my teaching lectures with a British accent. I watch too many documentaries and I care too much and laugh at everything.
Mess with my family and Ill cut ya!
Dis-respect or miss treat the elderly and I will cuss you out like a truck driver or sailor or who ever swears more in contemporary stereotypes.
Act like a ignorant ass and embarrass/harass the wait staff at the restaurant -Ill key your car!
I'll forgive you for all these things and take you out for ice cream - if you want to talk about it ;)
Im the best friend you will ever have and I listen with my heart. I will drive 1000+ miles to be anywhere you need me. Im a hot mess of love and good intentions, a hypocrite in hiding AND a melodramatic overly emotional and incredibly loving and annoyingly sentimental goof ball. I can't spell -even with spell check and I'll hit to snooze button for hours. I want to wrestle on the front lawn, tell you about the stars with my cool constellation app and make fun of you and your dumb love of _____________________.
And Im not perfect - but I'm "special?"
“It is not so incomprehensible as you pretend, sweet pea. Love is the feeling we have for those we care deeply about and hold in high regard. It can be light as the hug we give a friend or heavy as the sacrifices we make for our children. It can be romantic, platonic, familial, fleeting, everlasting, conditional, unconditional, imbued with sorrow, stoked by sex, sullied by abuse, amplified by kindness, twisted by betrayal, deepened by time, darkened by difficulty, leavened by generosity, nourished by humor and “loaded with promises and commitments” that we may or may not want or keep.
The best thing you can possibly do with your life is to tackle the motherfucking shit out of it.” - Cheryl Strayed
I come from a very close family that is very far away- so- that often occupies my thoughts.
I live and dream about work and believe very deeply in what I do.
I often wish I had one of those careers/jobs that you didn't have to take home every night. I guess my ideal match would help me to let it go or relax a little. I don't think that I am uptight, just very passionate and committed to what ever I put my energy into. It is sometimes hard to turn that off.
bad sleeping habits
bad spelling punctuation and grammar
I'll stare into you soul if you let me- and you'll feel it.
being present - and giving someone my undivided attention.
I am also a good listener and genuinely just interested in people and their life.

2. sketchbook pen/pencil
3. car. ( my friends make fun of me because I always have to drive- they think its control.... I just love driving! A spontaneous road trip is always at the top of my list. trying to get lost or find something unusual is always fun.
4. the ocean. I still have dreams about it- but I sure do appreciate it now that I am so far away.
5. Sound. oddly- as a visual artist, the idea that I could not hear music is terrifying. In the case of a fire I would grab my computer and ipod.
Friday night is typically about me and my work in my studio with good music. I would be more than willing to share it with someone really special- but if not them I choose me and Art!
