I'm a total night owl, an extroverted introvert, a Friday the 13th baby, and a fan of the Oxford comma. I journal almost every day. I have two wiener dogs. They're small and crazy. Let's root for the underdog :)
What I’m doing with my life
Running an art and accessory business....I do graphic design for my business although professionally trained graphic designers would probably scoff at the programs I use :)

I've been passionate about writing, since I was 7 years old and penned a 30 page "novel" in over-sized kid's handwriting. Now I mostly write non-fiction. I edited a book a few years back about vintage smut and now have another non-fiction book in the works.

Staying up late and falling down a You Tube music rabbit hole
I’m really good at
Listening. Appreciating experiences and how I can learn from them, even if the experience was negative. Generally, I'm pretty introspective. Learning, in general, is important to me.

I like helping people understand themselves better and am currently reading up on non-violent communication. I'd like to apply the NVC approach to different areas of my life and am contemplating how it might be part of a new career path.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have really long hair that I haven't cut since 2006.

I love the Duncan Trussell Family Hour podcast and even got to meet Duncan this year (2016). He was a total sweetheart!
The six things I could never do without
General Likes: free spirits, optimistic people, free thinkers, self-awareness, long & engaging conversations, trying new foods, friendliness, openness to new experience, humor and playfulness, genuineness

General Dislikes: arrogance, meanness, bad attitudes, unnecessary conflict, political debate (particularly online debate), homophobes/racists/sexists, lack of empathy, know-it-alls, posturing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-How to do and be my best
-People I care about
-Dreams...I've recorded my dreams (when I can remember) for the past 600 days
-Ideas for creative projects....I love making digital collages and thinking up new writing topics
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about, hanging with friends. Getting a few drinks and hopefully engaging in more in-depth conversation rather than small talk. 420 friendly and enjoy it but not an everyday pot head. It's cool if you are.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can be too serious, seriously :)

Over analyzing...this is a vice, I know. You know you're an over-analyzer when you over-analyze your over-analyzing. I practice mindfulness as best I can and avoid over-burdening others with this mental noise.
You should message me if
I'm attracted to people who are thoughtful, have a positive mindset, kind, adventurous, open-minded, emotionally intelligent, those who want to make a positive difference.

I am married but open (with husband's support). He's totally cool with this and would not be involved. Not looking for polyamory. No judgment but not interested in men who are cheating as that goes against my consensual non monogamy philosophy.
