My self-summary
I recently moved back to Delaware after living in Portland, Oregon for two years. I moved back because of my mother's health. I really miss Portland but family is important to me. Will I be staying here for ever? Absolutely not.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Experiencing new opportunities and figuring out what I want to get out of life.

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.
I’m really good at
I like to think I can make people feel appreciated, special and accepted. Laughing. Dancing. Cooking. I am fairly proficient in writing. I'm not to shabby at trivia.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What makes things tick or the progression of how something got to its current state of being.

Accessing my behaviors/habits and considering how to be a better person and do the right thing.

Daydreaming and getting stuck in my imagination.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding after a long week; either hanging out with friends or taking it easy at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Apparently I sometimes talk in my sleep and I can't sleep with out the noise from a fan running.
You should message me if
If you don't take yourself too seriously , enjoy having fun, chilling out and are looking for someone to be comfortable around. Or if you want to get to know me, don't be afraid to message, I'm friendly and kind as long as you're being honest.
