Update: I am moving back to my hometown of Medford at the end of May. I will be doing a CNA course and hopefully working in Ashland. I'm still working as a caregiver until I move.
I've lost 80 lbs in the last year and I feel absolutely fantastic. I accomplished one of my goals which was to go rock climbing. I had a blast and hope to invest some more time into that. I'm constantly on the road to self improvement through acceptance, patience, and introspection.
My mantra, when it comes to pushing myself, whether it is with exercise or just hard times in life is, "It doesn't matter how slow you go, as long as you don't stop."
I never give up.
seeing things from some one else's point of view.
understanding; being intuitive.
singing in the shower.
connecting with anybody(see below quote from my ex/best friend).
"In your talents you need to put that you can get along with anyone. It's very impressive, I saw you taking to a multimillionaire (the guy that owns the company I work for) just as easily as you hung with a hobo. Not many people can do either and you did both effortlessly I'm actually a little jealous."
not giving up.
typing. I can type 120wpm with an average of three mistakes per minute.
It seems that I don't have any special talents per say, but I believe that is only because I haven't experienced enough. There could be some hidden talent that I, myself, am unaware of due to lack of opportunity. I have been working on changing that for myself though by trying a bunch of new and different things.
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Susanne Collins, The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, and An Atheist's Universe. I'll read pretty much anything though. I prefer books over television any day.
Television- Doctor Who.
Disney, I love all Disney but here's my top 5 just to keep this list short: Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, Wall-E, The Little Mermaid, and Tangled.
I love horror movies, but I'm such a wuss it's not even funny. Well, it may be to you- but seriously, I'm pretty bad. Finding Nemo is my favorite movie to watch after scary movies just so that I can go to sleep at night. Yeah, told ya.
So, no particular movies are coming to mind at the moment. I enjoy watching them, but I would much rather be listening to music.
Music, oh sweet music<3-
Ben Howard, Bright Eyes, Rare Monk, Ninja Turtle Ninja Tiger, The Lumineers, Blue October, Neva Dinova, Birdy, Zee Avi, Lindsey Stirling, Crown The Empire, Broadway, Modest Mouse, Elliott Smith, Tom Petty, Attila, Born of Osiris, As Blood Runs Black, Of Mice and Men, Emmure, For The Fallen Dreams, Emarosa, Winds of Plague, AEnimus, Suicide Silence, Upon A Burning Body, NeverShoutNever, Attack Attack, Sleeping With Sirens, Asking Alexandria, Paramore, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, All Time Low, New Found Glory, Pink Floyd, As I Lay Dying, Adele, Taking Back Sunday, A Fine Frenzy, Dead and Divine, Her Death and After, Bob Marley, Rebelution, Iration, Alcyon Massive, Sublime, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Arctic Monkeys, The Kooks, The Killers, Ingrid Michaelson, and a lot more. :)
Food- I am a primarily raw vegan. My favorite foods are stir fry, salads, burritos, jalepeño hummus, green smoothies and sorbets.
the wonders of the universe. As a born again atheist I look at the world through wide eyes. Science absolutely fascinates me now. I may never understand it(I'm a poet, not a scientist) but I'll never stop trying.
my dreams/nightmares. With that comes thinking about how the mind works. I'm constantly analyzing my thoughts, my perspective.
what it would be like to fly.
what it would be like to be a mermaid.
the greatness and vastness of space and it's beauty.
the fact that other people are experiencing different things than what I am at this very moment.
doing little social experiments in my head. I people watch a lot.
whatever book I'm reading at the moment.
fruits and veggies.
little phrases that play like a broken record in my head until I write them down and turn them into a poem or other form of writing.
my next art project.
lyrics that are stuck in my head.
random words that pop into my head that I don't immediately remember the meaning of(for example, altruistic), but once I look them up are perfect for whatever major scenario is going on in my life.
Chilling with my family.
I love to hang out with friends, but things are a bit difficult for getting out lately. I go out occasionally for drinks with friends, or to a comedy show.
Going for a walk while singing.
Meandering through downtown Portland for no reason in particular.
I dropped out of culinary school.
I've been adopted twice.
you love the outdoors, music, and animals.
you have an ever wandering spirit and a curious mind.
you play Pokemon.
if you would like to go on a date, or go out as friends. :)
