Thus far, I've led a great deal of my life by going with my gut. I'm a fairly easy-going person. I love going with the flow and I hate confrontation. That's not to say I'm a complete doormat and I won't stand up for myself when I feel it's worth it, but for the most part I like to let things roll off my back. That being said, I do not tolerate bullcrap or insincerity well. I prefer people to just be themselves around me.
My Briggs Myers' personality type is an INFJ. I think I possess a great capacity to care for others. I'm a very warm and accepting person but I'm also a fairly private person. It is only when I trust someone and value them, that I really open up.
Some of the qualities that I respect the most when I see them in others are kindness, acceptance, loyalty, empathy, thoughtfulness, honesty and a tender heart.
I have an associate degree in animation and a BA in Art History. I greatly value knowledge and learning. My biggest goal was getting my doctorate in Art History, but I do not know if that's what I really want anymore.
I really have been trying to further develop my hobbies. I took improvisational comedy classes in Portland. I hope to pick it back up here soon, as well as pursue other avenues of comedy, such as sketch, writing, or stand-up.
I also do art for leisure and have been trying to keep up with that hobby.
