I'm not like other girls.
Hobbies? Photography is my first love.. And I’m fairly good at it. I have always loved pictures, but discovered just how much, and discovered my talent for it a little late. I’d rather look at the world through a camera than through my own eyes sometimes. The world is beautiful seen through a camera lens. You won’t find me WITHOUT my camera, hardly ever. Photography is teaching me how to SEE. To really look at things. Things I never noticed before picking up a camera for the first time.
I’m a dork. I read a lot. Second to my camera, I usually always have a book with me.
I love to people watch.
I love theatre. I act, and have since Jr. High. Directed a bit in college. I love art, in every aspect.
I'm very vintage. I love vintage photography, vintage clothes, vintage music. 30's and 40's music/movies/style = class to me. Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Greta Garbo, Bettie Page....all the old pin up girls. .Wish I could have grown up then. Or in the 50's, the whole Dirty Dancing Era. =)
I watch a lot of movies.
I go shopping a lot.
I LOVE music. Any kind.I'm very ecclectic when it comes to my musical tastes. Just depends on what mood I'm in. Good music is the kind that gives you the chills when you listen to it. It strikes a chord in you, touches you down to your bones. I love a good melody. I love the guitar and the piano, I can play the latter of the two. There is nothing better than curling up in the dark, especially if it's storming outside, and listening to a good record. LOUD.
I love the rain. Thunder, lightning, wind, everything about it. It focuses me, calms me. I'm such a weirdo.
I value my intelligence, as well as intelligence in other people. I like people who can carry on a conversation, who have an opinion and aren't afraid to voice it. I love to talk. I love to debate. I'm a talker. Its the only thing I remember getting in trouble for in elementary school. I can carry on a conversation with a fence post.
I’m the type of person who will do whatever I can to make the people that are important to me happy. The give you the shirt of my back type I’m very trusting, sometimes Naïve. I give people my whole heart ,everything I have, too quickly.
I’ve always been the funny one, the one that could always make you laugh. For a long time it was a coping mechanism. Now I consider it a talent.
I Love to travel. Don’t get to often, want to more. I WILL see the world one day.
I am a serious sucker for animals. I'm an active member of the ASPCA and can't stand the thought of any animal being neglected, beaten, or mistreated. If I could bring home every stray I come across, I would so do it, just to ensure that they were taken care of. I love dogs especially.
I love my family and my friends more than my own life. My grandma is my hero. My mom is too. I was adopted as a baby by the most amazing parents. I would not be who I am today without them. I also have the most awesome bunch of brothers and sisters a girl could ask for. I've been so blessed to have a great family..and i have the best group of close friends ever, and i don't know what i'd do without them.
I'm really outgoing. I love to laugh and have fun. I adapt well in most any situation and find the fun/delight in the simple things. I have an excellent sense of humor. for a long time it was a coping mechanism. Now, i consider it it a talent.
I’ve been compared to some pretty outrageous people, and can't say that I wasn't flattered, but don't really see the likeness that most people insist upon. I don’t know. I’ve got a free spirit. I’m just me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Good conversation is ideal on the first date. Bars and clubs don't make for good conversation. Somewhere fun, where we could both have a good time, and sit and talk for hours. get to know eachother. Dinner always works. but i'm also up for the unorthodox. Maybe something neither of us had done before but always wanted. to. :)
