Industry Student
Location seattle suburbia, wa, United States
Introduction I'm a life-time Seattle-area girl. I am now a stay-at-home mom and a full time student. I have a great house, a fantastic dog, and an exceptional group of friends. I'm very outgoing, and it's difficult to offend me. I love to cook, drink wine, hike, travel, kiss, write, and spend quality time with people. I sometimes sleep through perfectly good movies. I am left handed, though I am learning to play the guitar right-handed (or maybe I should say I *WAS* learning, until I pick up that guitar case more regularly). I am clutzy; I seem to have difficulties properly picking up my feet when I walk. I also have trouble putting my clothes on right-side-out. If forced to label myself, I'd say I'm a pseudo-(sub)urban neo-hippy. :) I'm quite left-leaning in politics, social issues, and spirituality.
