Well, I rented a place in the Mexican War Streets.. I got everything situated (not a lot of stuff to situate, but it got done), I set up my bed and put away my new kitchen stuff, arranged my spices just so.. the bathroom sparkles and had all of my toiletries in it, I put together furniture and cleaned the blinds (it's gotta be clean, I can't stand the idea of old dirt or thinking I'm touching stranger dirt). I made a pot of soup, I got all tucked in to watch a movie on netflix on my new 40in tv... and then it happened... homicide detectives rang my doorbell. Huh?! WTF??! I should be specific and state that I am two streets over from the exact war streets.. I looked at my flat when it was raining and early morning.. I jumped at it because I didn't have much time or options, this place was beautiful and in my price range - I thought I found a gem. Homicide detectives coming to my door shouldn't be a common thing, turns out in this neighborhood that it's the way it goes.. So, guess what? I'm going back to Cali at the end of this month. Going to reboot again, bikram, cleansing and meditation.. after that, hoping to just move to Europe and stop skipping around all the time. I wish that my guy would figure out that it's time to meet, but it's when the timing is right, eh? Soon... but, I'm going to be the very best me when the time is right. So, where are you at???
On the road, again... need to update this profile. DC wasn't the place for me, stuffed suits and no emotions. Moving to PA June 30, I've been in town for the last month and found that there are such things as social people on the east coast (only take offense if you are a DC lover). The rest of this profile is pretty much dead on, I just want a great man to treat me like the great woman that I am.
Born and raised in California, like totally. A bay area woman that loves to see the world. I want to date and feel close with someone special again,
I moved from California to DC in January to work in a studio here, I make glass and show the curious people the fiery side of my art. It's a fantastic medium. I've not really made a lot of friends here, I'm going to let you in on a little secret about this place: people are really high strung here. I don't want to talk about politics, really. I choose to remain out of the loop of that world, it's a good feeling, I dare you to try it out.
I rent a little house here and find myself doing odd chores a lot. I cannot tell you how much I value a good parking spot now, I think that has so much to do with why people are in such a rush and so gruff in passing. I have perfected the perfect morning cup of tea or coffee- boring? I don't think so, I'm taking the time to treat myself right from the time I wake up, you should try it out. I go to bikram yoga and really love how it's just about me and the woman staring back at me in the mirror, she a fox! I'm loving the fact that I am loving me more on a daily basis. Is that a narcissists mantra? It shouldn't be, doing for others is my instinct, one often forgets oneself in that action.
I lived in Europe for five years, Japan for two (I was in Japan for the earthquake and tsunami) and wound up absorbing a lot of the languages and ultimately just realizing the world is larger than the horizon I can see in front of me. I decided to take the time to really observe and participate with different cultures, customs, holidays, festivals, cuisines, attitudes, perspectives, perceptions, routes, dialects, treatment of the elderly as well as children, approaches to everyday common things right down to light switches, shopping carts and claw machines at carnivals; noticing how we all borrow and lend to the world. I wound up going to several art schools and eventually graduated from the best glassblowing school on the planet. It wasn't something that I planned, it just played out that way.
I am simplifying my life- more time for tea, catching up with old as well as making new friends, perfecting my fireplace appreciation skills- these things are important to me. I've found myself interested in finding someone to enjoy these things with me. Someone that is a sort of a Dudley Do Right, but there's an edge of a dark side- I have those qualities in me as well. I am looking for someone that will introduce me to another approach in life, I tend to do everything for myself, that gets mundane. I'm just looking for a good person...you know who you are.
Country music makes my ears bleed…really.
No religious nut jobs, thanks.
I can't really be put into one category; I'm short and round, a girlish tomboy. One thing that can be said is that I am a balanced woman - I got me some yin in my yang.
