"Towards the tide I revise what is, Controlling movement with silence. Can the mist in the mountain forest be the substance to block the way of the eye?"

Steffie. 21. TX. My life is an attempt to touch people's souls at their worst and best, and flip over all the stones that I might have left unturned the first couple of lifetimes around.
To all the man sluts on this site: I have an amazing lover/best friend, and do not intend on finding another one. However, I love making new friends, and I am honestly not that hard to get along with.
I have a wacky personality, and although I am strong enough to have my own views, I take pride in my ability to remain open-minded, and to respect the point of views of others. But be warned: My hobbies include stereotype twiddling, thinking outside of the box, and stepping over cultural lines. So as long as you don't hold fast to any first impressions, then we should get along just fine. :) :)
Talking to new people, gaining new perspectives, theology, philosophy, beauty of all kinds. Movies that draw you in with them. Music that speaks to the heart. Good food. Learning new languages,(at the moment I am slowly familiarizing myself with Romanian and Latin. I know Sign Language, English, and Playful Sarcasm.) SHOPPING, Good food. Playing piano (I have been playing for 20 years this August :) Meditation, cultural studies, spirituality, various pagan crafts. Good Food. People that have used their hardships to grow stronger, wiser, and into the better versions of themselves. Positivity. Did I mention good food? I LOVE to eat. Poetry... Kahlil Gibran. I like to listen to small children talk about life, their minds are so pure and whimsical, and there is so much to learn from them. I'm a child at heart to, and still enjoy simple things: Board games, swing sets, small animals... the toy isle at walmart LMAO. I enjoy loving my family and friends, and showing them that I appreciate them. Once you have me, I am yours.
I love my body. I love its slenderness, and its curves, its mixture of races, and its golden, mahogany surface. I am now not ashamed to be beautiful to my own eyes, and to be proud of who and what I have become. I love my scars, inside and out, because with them, I can help teach others to love and accept themselves.
This morning, when I woke up? I loved that it was freezing cold in our room, but his arms were still keeping me warm. I love that when I peeked at his computer from under the covers, he was researching my major, so we could have even more in common. And that as soon as he realized that I was awake, he stopped and smiled at me, and said that every morning, when I wake up, I stare at him dazed and cross-eyed before I come to my senses. But he wouldn't change it, and says he wants to wake up to my cross-eyed grin everyday for the rest of his life.
I like finding a book that lets me know the scientific reason why the sky is blue, the exact species of a flower, and the correct mixture of herbs to cure a nagging illness. But I love staring at the blue sky, and asking the angels how I fit into it, finding wildflowers in the most unexpected, concrete, and urban of areas, and being able to share remedies/tinctures with my grandmother, as she fills me with some of our family's rich heritage and traditions. As much as I like books and knowledge, I am fulfilled by experience.
I can't stand:
Misplaced arrogance, liars, racists, and condescendence. These will push me to my last nerve... if you imply that you are better than the air you breathe I will not hesitate to put you in your place. And heaven forbid you think you can box me into a category because of my gender or ethnic origin. I have never been one to assume that knowing a lot means that you are close to knowing everything... on the contrary. I've realized that I am further than I first assumed, and not afraid to show humility when the situation allows. War. When people refuse to expand themselves, due to the comfort of their ignorance. I hate when people automatically assume I'm an uncultured, close-minded bigot because I'm an American. People who are sloppy drunks. Those hyper people who talk loudly to themselves and upon entering a room, and then talk louder when they see that you're not paying them any attention, jesus. *_* People who make fun of other people's accents. People I've never met who are bold enough to point out the fact that I'm skinny... like I didn't know. Like this body is a rental and I just figured it out right after they said it and was like oh shit I'm a size 0. LOL.
