The stars have aligned and the universe has conspired to help me make it to LA- something I have wanted for a long time and am really so excited about. I write a lot here so if reading isn't your thing, you might want to skip me. I'm a"Jersey" girl at heart-minus the negative stereotypes ( see Jersey Shore, RHONJ). I'm a good listener, insightful and over analytical. I'm quirky, spunky,sweet and sensitive but can take jokes and give them back. I value honesty and directness- I'm blunt and things come out of my mouth that probably shouldn't. I'm very loyal and will do anything for my family and closest friends. I believe in quality over quantity- the relationships I have in my life now are important, special and mean something to me. I invest myself completely if I care about you and I'm learning that not everyone shares that value. Going forward, I am only surrounding myself with people who make me happy, lift me up and add something to my life.
My family is amazing and I genuinely mean this. My parents are awesome. They are my biggest supporters and I am so lucky to have the relationship I do with them. They have been married for 39 years and while their marriage isn't perfect (I don't think anyone's is), I admire their relationship and the work they put in to maintain it. I am also very close to my Grandpa Jordan. He is the coolest 87 yr. old ever. I'm a middle child and my older brother and younger sister are two of my best friends. I'm active, workout daily and play tennis when I can find someone to play with- I'm a lefty and my backhand is super. I love ping-pong and sushi but still use chopstix my own special way. I want to travel more internationally- Japan and Greece are dream destinations. I have an aunt, uncle and lots of cousins in LA, OC and SD, who I am super close to. I can't wait to spend more time with them!
I wake up early and get a lot done in the AM. I love bookstores,discussin g issues near/far and like to hear others' ideas. I have found a new passion in learning about spirituality, meditation and Buddhist philosophy. It's opened my mind and so far, has had a profound effect on the way I see and manage the world. I like hearing new bands. Other likes: writing, scrabble, documentaries, memoirs and hugs. I'm gullible and slightly indecisive-I think. I'm middle maintenance= I have 300 lip glosses,can't have too many shoes, love fashion and am pretty girly BUT also love sports-playing,watch ing, going to live events and the great outdoors- hiking and beach. I enjoy rocking sweats and a hoodie when the weather sucks. I prefer walking to driving,reading to watching and fruit to candy. I am looking to meet someone who shares most of the same values I do and who I feel that "spark" with. I've been able to find one or the other, but not a combination of the two. I want to meet someone who is adventurous yet grounded. And humor trumps all.
