Woodland Hills, CA
making to-do lists, bunnies, reading, anime, writing, smelling new books, office supplies, working out, leading a balanced and spontaneous life, perfecting everything (cooking, writing, job performance, sewing), dancing, belly laughs, crawling on desks, Japan, traveling, sad music, braiding hair, falling asleep entwined with a special person, facing fear everyday and saying, "I can handle this," exploring life's affectionate mysteries, spending long stretches of time alone while cleaning or dancing or writing, music, possible veganism, free days, cultivating resilience and tenderness
I am above all a reader, but am also a writer, gadget-junkie, and word-lover. I am currently fighting a horrible addiction to my Nintendo DS - the wifi capability makes playing with friends across the country a breeze. I love anime & manga, the smell of new books, challenging myself constantly, and the smell of a fall morning. I like delicate blue glass things, toys, and my big, fat, orange cat.
