I really enjoy deep intellectual conversations, especially with self-aware, secure, straightforward people, but who know how to cut through the seriousness with a joke or snide comment at just the right moment ;)
ESTJ / ENFJ for those interested.
I value open mindedness and humility a great deal and love learning about perspectives and beliefs different than mine.
I also enjoy finding humor in and poking fun at all of them, especially my own. I don't take myself too seriously and have a hard time breaking boundaries with those who are easily offended.
Some current / interested in hobbies: soap making, comedy / improv, magic, guitar, triathlons, obstacle races, massage.
Location note: I split my time between SF & Concord.
Napping. Seriously, I've perfected the art.
Deflecting arguments of why my favorite shoes are called five fingers when really, they're on the toes. Luckily I'm often running with my dog so I just call him back and play the cuteness card. Win.
Listening. That's right, baby girl, I'm all ears.
But when I want to be seen:
I've been told I have nice eyes. That or the fact that I'm always wearing sandals.
Books: Atlas Shrugged, Harry Potter, Switch, Red Rising, Ethical Slut
Movies: Matrix, Now You See Me, Zoolander
Shows: 24, Heroes, Survivor, Amazing Race, Avatar - The Last Airbender, House of Cards, Parks and Recreation
Music: Anything with a good beat, uplifting trance. Beautiful Day by U2 was my alarm clock each morning in high school and is still my favorite song to this day.
Food: Everything but green olives; omnivorous. Healthy & home cooked!
A good challenge (I'm game if you're game).
Chipotle 13.5 times per year. No more, no less.
With my remaining, very limited, brainpower:
- How I can mentor someone in the most impactful way.
- What the world would be like if people were more compassionate. I'm a big believer in the power of habit, 1% change over time, and bottom up grassroots movements - the "if everyone turned off a light.." idea.
On my not so daring nights, I can be found:
Hosting potluck game nights - friendly competition in charades, board games, cornhole, ping pong, sports, croquet, you name it!
Or out in nature / on a weekend camping / backpacking trip - I really appreciate the simple things.
You think we'd be great adventure / activity buddies. You have a hobby you'd like to share or start.
You want to share a Chipotle burrito. Haha just kidding I want my own.
