People tell me I'm different then most. I care little about what a person does or doesn't have whether its education, money, possessions...I pay attention to the character of the people I meet. I have close friends who range in age from 20 to 86 and I'm constantly amazed at what I learn from all of them.
I try to spend as much time outdoors as possible, especially at the coast. I'm more in to the arts then sports, but you can't live in NC without becoming a college basketball fan. I like spending time with interesting people who can teach me something.
Like many people say, I find it difficult to describe myself. Rather than explaining to people who I think I am, I'd prefer they make their own conclusions.
if you've gotten to this sentence I will also add, I'm the least photogenic person out there. I'm so uncomfortable with the camera on me and it shows in pictures.
I'm a pretty good cook but taking care of the important people in my life is my biggest strength. I'm also told I'm a great listener and have other hidden talents.
What I want to be good at. I want to learn to 'drive' a motorcycle (I'm not a good passenger), knit, become a garage mechanic - how can I ever hope to own a vintage muscle car if this doesn't happen, be back in a house (I live in an apt) so I can break out my power tools.
Hopefully by now you realize I'm not a girly girl, but rest assured, I'm all about being a sexy woman.
I also appear to be very conservative when actually I'm much more bohemian. I've never made any money because I've always been more interested in helping people then having a nice car. I'm perfectly happy living like a graduate student, though it would be nice to live in a place with both a great bathroom and a great kitchen.
I'm about experiences more then possessions. If I have a few extra $s I'd rather use it for a good night out than a new outfit. If I have a few more extra $s its always a trip to the water.
My favorite food is usually whats in front of me - friends joke that I should weigh at least 200 lbs! But I can also be picky. There are some flavors I can't bring myself to appreciate - fennel being the biggest. I also have this thing about texture, I don't know why, its just there. Grits and cottage cheese. Ewww!!
There's an addendum to #2. Most of my closest friends are men. If you're uncomfortable with that then I wish you well. They are purely platonic relationships - from both sides. I won't choose you over them.
