There are many things that I can say about myself, but I'll pick a select few for now, like the fact that I think every person is as vast as a universe and it's impossible to get to know them through the little bits of information that they can provide in a Bio.
I have a weird obsession with snow and wintertime and I have an odd opinion that the farther north you go, the happier you are. I'm a proud Massachusetts kid and yet, ironically, the man I intend to marry and have children with is Florida-born and has never seen snow (yet). Moderation and understanding are my gospel, but I'm not above becoming obsessed and confused. I think and analyze way, WAY too much and it often keeps me from being the healthy, motivated and happy adult I fantasize about being.
I love French culture, or any culture where people are polite and have manners. I rank kindness and empathy up there with the best human traits, and I always try to remember to "Be kind to every one you meet, for each is fighting a hard battle," a quote from Plato. I try not to judge or generalize, but I'm not a saint.
Being creative and doing things with my hands keeps me sane, as do my cat, fiancé, and closest friends. I love yoga, even though I don't do it as often as I should. Politics infuriates me but I still pay a lot of attention to it.
I actually love learning, but college is pricey and I don't know if I can make it there, which hurts a lot. My memory is terrible, but I try to focus and pay attention as often as I remember to, even though my brain likes to take vacations inside itself. I'm a cynic when it comes to my views about the world and the way it works, but I have a lot of faith in people.
I waste way too much of my life on computer games and TV, but I'm trying to change that by getting back to exploring nature the way I did as a kid. I have an eerie love of the clarity that one gets from an open window and a breeze. But I also adore all the corners of a house that no one ever looks at and I can't feel comfortable in a house unless I know every nook and cranny, and well. Sometimes I feel like I'm not all there, but then I go and sing to my cat or make weird noises with friends and it's all good.
I'm working on living, which is the hardest thing I've ever tried to do.
I believe you only have one life, so you might as well try everything you thought you wouldn't like - I live by this statement.
