Maslow's peak is high, but I'm trying. I'm Stephanie. I find beauty in everyting, but my prefrences usually lie in the more creative areas of life; I love art, music, theatre, photography, poetry, literature, etc.
I strive to create as well, I do a bit of oil painting, some collage, some charcoal... mostly dabbling but unfortunately I often wonder if I was more designed to observe, to embrace all art forms rather than to tie myself down to one and devote myself to it. Theres a constant inner struggle between my desire to create and my desire to learn and absorb the world.
For a while though, I did think that theatre was my calling. I have quite a background in that, doing everything from running lights, sound, to stage managing, to tech directing, to being onstage. So I guess that I would consider theatre one of my hobbies, but I havent done a show in months.
I also love music. I love all sorts of music, but what I've been listening to mostly lately is indie rock and electroclash type things. But I do enjoy everything from Metallica to Patsy Cline to showtunes to celtic to Afroman and back. I try to go to a lot of shows, because number one - the music (duh), but number two - I really enjoy people watching.
Humans are amazing complex creatures, I almost want to say that trying to understand them is futile, but I guess it can't hurt.
I am a very passionate individual and have in the past dug myself in way too far for an individual and it hurt for a long time. Because of this, I've hardened a bit and lost some of my characteristic Piscean emotional intensity, or rather my tendency to let my emotions override my logic. Well, I take that back, I still do, but I at least think it out as well.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
It really depends on the context... I personally would love to go to the art museum, the movies, the water, a park, a concert, a play, even if the date consisted of talking on the couch... it's really not what goes on that matters so much as the connection you make.
