formspring asking if I could do an "about me" post, I assumed you meant, like the facts about me, like where I am from and what I have done, So I will give some of that info here now.
Hi! My name is Christina! I am 30 years old, a wife for the last 8 years, a mom for the last 5. I live in a small town in Northern Nevada and have enjoyed rural life for about 9 years now. I got my BA majoring in Ceramic Sculpture, worked in the arts industry for a few years (first a non profit organizing art exhibitions and facilitating visiting artist programs and PR, then teaching yoga and facilitating art therapy for individuals with eating disorders) and now enjoy being a stay at home mom selling vintage clothing while my son is in preschool. My birthday is in September (my favorite month of the year) My favorite season is summer, favorite color is burnt, rusty, orange, and my favorite smells are bergamot, lemon verbena, black pepper, and wet dirt. I wear Gypsy Water perfume. My favorite foods are salty and crispy. I love reading and stick to non fiction because I always want to learn about something new. My current book is "Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error," by Kathryn Schultz. I heard about it in NPR, the only radio station I listen to. I do love music though and I love to dance! My current obsession is The Black Keys (I downloaded every single one of their albums and have been listening to them on random repeat for the past week. I will not stop until I am introduced to something new, then I will proceed to have sex with that new album/song/group till the next thing comes around. Random Repeat). The only plants I have ever been able to keep alive ever are Orchids. I have 7 of them in my kitchen window (gifts from my husband). I am madly in love. With my husband, my son, and myself. I may not have any more children since I love that we are three. I feel strong emotional urges to do things when the time is right (quit jobs, have babies, make changes) and wait for these promptings before acting. If I don't feel it, I don't do it. I love people and love groups of people, but prefer to interact with them one on one in person. I hate calling people on the phone generally (though I don't mind when people call me). I am also bad at emailing or any type of communication that is not face to face. I do not frequently feel lonely and I love time alone, though I wish I had more friends and understand that this is my fault since a part of me does sort of like not having too many. I actually like it when girls cuss. I think a subtle tough girl attitude mixed with humor and humbleness is so attractive. I do yoga, though not very often lately. I don't have television stations, but we rent shows, my favorites being Curb Your Enthusiasm, Flight of the Conchords, Little Britain, the British version of The Office, Family Guy, Penn and Teller's Bull Shit, Sea Lab, Pingu, and Shawn the Sheep. My favorite movies are High Fidelity, True Romance, American Psycho, and very dark comedies like Your Friends and Neighbors, Happiness, and Welcome to the Doll House. I know The Princess Bride by heart. I like the smell of my own BO and farts but most people do I guess, and I use a soft, compact tooth brush, but have not been to the dentist in years (worst hate).
I mean, lets see, is there anything else? A little over indulgent, but its a free internet space. You don't have to read all that stuff if you are in a rush or don't really care. I won't take it personally. That is just how it is sometimes.
