My self-summary
I am always working on myself, and always willing to admit when I don't know. If that's not something you resonate with or can accept, you should probably not waste our time reading further. My day-to-day is pretty standard when I think about it, but I feel like I live for the moments between the cracks when true personal connection or adventure peeks out and gives me an ear-to-ear smile. My ideal is to create at least one of those moments each day, challenge myself to learn something, or push myself in some way. I am pretty mellow, generally pleased with things, and have an adventurous spirit.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently assistant teaching at a montessori school, and spending my free time hooping, taking photographs, watching movies, finding peace, drinking coffee, and looking for ways to create positivity.

When I have more free time, my passions are: traveling, camping, being with family & friends, going to the public library, reading, or hiking. New things I'm attempting to learn are: hoop-dancing, yoga, deep breathing, starting my scuba diving certification... There are lots of other things that spark my interest as well. I also enjoy having fun with photography and other arts, and riding my bike. I'm excited to learn new things, travel and find new thrills. I'm wanting to learn how to do basically any outdoor activities (or chores) to be able to survive on my own in the woods. It's not that easy! I'd like to also start going back to school soon to finish up my BA, (although I've changed my major more times than I remember).
It's my dream to one day have and live in a co-op and/or an earth ship, hopefully one that I helped build. It will probably be near some hot springs, a river and redwood trees, or in Colorado or maybe the Virgin Islands. I would like to continue teaching young ones and potentially having one of my own. When this dream comes to fruition I envision also having a seafoam green vintage truck which is converted to biodiesel or another environmentally sound alternative.
I’m really good at
finding the beauty in things, being calm in stressful situations, camping, lying about in a hammock, understanding sub-conscious motivations

I spend a lot of time thinking about
my dreams and my goals, manifestation, sailing the sea, frolicking the forest, and the Zombie apocalypse
On a typical Friday night I am
gardening a bit, then relaxing in my hammock while reading with pandora playing chill music or youtube scenes of the sea, or watching comedy , cooking something fresh and yummy; then either going to a friend's house, going swimming, going out downtown with buddies, or passing out early to catch-up on missed sleep during the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a kid I thought I could actually fly if I wanted to badly enough and no one was watching. Sometimes I still believe this.
You should message me if
you know what D.I.Y. means, & you enjoy (but do not have to be good at): camping, building, gardening, dancing, yoga, sailing, scuba, riding bikes, taking photos, silkscreening, teaching, comedy, trying new foods, listening, people watching, poetry, or playing music, OR if you're into primitivism or sustainability or are ready for the zombie apocalypse.

I'd love to meet a mountain man who wants to teach me how to fish, hunt, forage, chop, etc.
