About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to learn about other peoples' history, and reel from their present. Every time, I want to learn something new, and feel fortunate to be able to say that they are my friends.

ABOUT ME

I enjoy different kinds of people: I like learning from people who have a mission to help others; but then I also like creative people who go underground to express themselves in a way that is perhaps unacceptable to "decent" society. Then there are those who have lived in poverty, or those who have lived a life of crime, because I learn something about how our world REALLY is from all of them.I'm emotionally high-maintenance, although I don't require much- just time and attention. I'm sardonic, opinionated, uninhibited, irreverent, and soft top criteria of being allowed into my world: I'm very sensitive, but not irrational. I try not to worry about things I can't control, because time and life have taught me that I have very little control over anything important, and, quite frankly, if I'm worrying about trying to control every nuance of my life, it leaves me with very little energy to actually enjoy it while it's happening... So, I roll with the flow... I think people should learn to enjoy what they have while they have it, or else they're going to miss out on something great!

I am also kind, generous, sweet, thoughtful, smart, and funny (HILARIOUS really *smile*). If you're good to me, I'll love you fiercely, take care of you, be there for you, believe in you, be your cheerleader, your friend, and one of the better people that you'll ever meet in life. The way I see it, people have a choice when it comes to which me they get. You want to play nice, I'll play nice. You want to trip? I'll trip!.Holla and stay safe.

PHILOSOPHY

It's important to me to make myself vulnerable, so that I can grow, and to avoid getting stuck in a rut. Additionally, though it's sometimes hard to reconcile this, experiencing both the good and bad in life adds dimension to one's character. And we can't forget the people: kindness and respect go a very long way. I am who I am because of the people I have admired along the way.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have had the very good fortune of spending many nights in malindi with the germans, learning about their history, and reeling from their present. Every time I returned, I learned something new, and feel fortunate to be able to say that they are my friends.

Teach, Learn, Share

It is increasingly difficult to believe in oneself and a fair world when there are multi-million dollar condos in China, nearby massive squalors, for example. But it's important to hold on to who you are and to cultivate that person against all odds. This may mean that some will ridicule you, this may mean that you'll endure abject poverty for a time, or even that you'll lose yourself along the way, but every single human being on earth is unique and should be celebrated for it.
