My self-summary
Hello! I'm pretty shy and awkward but know how to laugh at myself and move on. I want to meet good people and ultimately the one that is for me. If you are intimidated by large blocks of text, well, so long!

I am conscious, loving, and unabashedly weird.
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved back to my homeland of California after living in Colorado for four years. I love and miss Colorado, but Cali ain't so bad. I'm finally back in school and really happy about it. My long term goal is to be an art teacher, though I'd be happy teaching a wide variety of subjects- English, History, Cooking, etc., or in many different careers. Art is tied in with my philosophy that self-expression is intrinsic to one's happiness. I enjoy using big words, not to stroke my ego but for the pure love of language. I'm unconsciously alliterative. I feel strongly about the essay "Whatever Makes Me Feel Big" by J. Frank Dobie. Google it, read it, let's discuss. "Not all hard truths are beautiful, but beauty is truth. It incorporates love and is incorporated by love. It is the goal of all great art. Its presence everywhere makes it free to all. It is not so abstract as justice, but beauty and intellectual freedom and justice, all incorporating truth and goodness, are constant sustainers to my mind and spirit."
I’m really good at
Writing, talking (sometimes), cooking, rambling on, making drinks and basically anything, looking innocent while making smart-ass and sometimes lewd comments, procrastinating (extraordinarily good at this one), ignoring my alarm clock, sleeping, hitting snooze, sleeping more, being late, typing, living, laughing, loving, making cliches, customer service, compulsively organizing, mindfully messifying, untying knots, navigating, taking pictures, staring at the wall. Mario, Zelda, Tetris, puzzles and such. Making candy, scooping ice cream. Making awesome things out of various unexciting things. Sewing, baking, hemp weaving, decorating. Neglecting my poor guitar. Singing? Probably not but it feels good.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Why is that sad, lonely woman laughing at the cat antlers in the middle of Target?"

Harry Potter, The Count of Monte Cristo, Shakespeare. Mythology, poetry, philosophy. Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series. T.S. Eliot. I'm in the middle of the Lord of the Rings trilogy but keep walking away for years at a time. Pride and Prejudice. Yes, I am a sucker for romance- but look! ^I read tough stuff like Stephen King, too! Hotdamn, I'm balanced! No Reservations by Anthony Bourdain. I enjoyed Eat, Pray, Love. My Uncle Oswald by Roald Dahl, Jane Eyre, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. I love Michael Pollan and need to actually read his books.

I'll try just about any kind of food, and love trying new flavors. Cooking makes me happy, especially new and exciting dishes! Or whatever's in the fridge that's about to turn. Most people who eat my food tell me I should be a chef. I also make really good humble pie. I was head cook in a candy store for a while so I know how to make old-timey fudge and dip caramel apples two at a time.
The six things I could never do without
I would never want to go without good people, delicious food, revelry, deep thought, ridiculously good music and love (in the universal sense).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm doing, why I'm doing it and what I'm going to do. Also what I've done and how I can do more things and better. The meaning of everything and nothing. Whatever art assignments I should be working on plus the myriad of other ideas that come up when I don't have time for them. What's for dinner? Life's dualities. I love bowls and blankets. Bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica. Beer, Beards, The Buddha. What? Basically everything all the time.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm happy doing whatever, whether it's sitting on the couch watching a movie, getting dolled up to go out, finding random delicious food, building up a campfire out where I can see the stars, riding bikes around, finding scrumptious beer, seeing a show, going on an adventure - basically anywhere that isn't obnoxiously loud or vapid.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am inflicted with that special gift they call "procrastination" so please don't be offended by any delays in reply on my part. Also, farting in the bathtub makes me laugh. The above alliterative mentioning of Battlestar Galactica is a quote from The Office. Sorry fellas, I've never seen the show-- but wait, an update! I finally watched and (wait for it) finished the entire series in an embarrassingly short amount of time. Yes, it was excellent. Now for Doctor Who! ... Aaaaand now I'm up to date on the Doctor's doings. Bow ties are cool. Now I'm concentrating on It's Always Sunny so I can feel like a really great person.
You should message me if
You are reasonably sure you don't fall under the category of
ignoramus, creepy in a bad way, asshole, or old fart, or if any of
those terms offend your delicate sensibilities, or if you'd like to
discuss said terms. If the aforementioned terms are unintelligible
and you can't be bothered with the Google button, keep on looking buddy.
