LOCATION:  San Francisco, California

WORK/SCHOOL:  work for an environmental nonprofit; office environment

RELATIONSHIP STATUS:  dating

DO YOU HAVE ANY RELIGIOUS AFFILIATION THAT YOU DON'T MIND SHARING?  agnostic

LIVE WITH ANY OTHER PEOPLE OR PETS?  live with 3 males, 1 female.  pets include lizards and an occasional dog from my dog-walking roommate.  the people are all about the same age, similarly educated and all unique and artistic in some way.


EXPLAIN A BASIC WORK/SCHOOL DAY:
  wake up M-F and get to work via bus by 9 am, work though the day goes quickly, spend the evening hanging out w/roommates, making music, movies 

ACTIVITIES DURING AN AVERAGE WEEK:  i work full-time monday-friday, on certain nights i meet up w/friends for dinner or to just hang out.  a few people i know have recently moved here and i have been showing them around.  i also volunteer with a refugee rights organization one night a week for a few hours.  at night in the apartment we usually end up playing music or collectively drawing or something creative.

DESCRIBE YOUR AVERAGE WEEKEND:  i love to explore the city.  i hang out w/my boyfriend and our friends a lot, who all live in the city as well.  lately i've been going to the free concerts around, or whatever festival is happening.  i like to go to the ocean especially and hike along the cliffs or talk while near the ocean.  been feeling like i have to be around nature for some part during the week.

 


WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO BUT DO NOT HAVE THE TIME OR MONEY? 
travel.  i love to travel, around the country, around the state, and especially outside of the country.  i like to travel by myself and would like to take a trip and meet new people and learn about the place i'm going to.  i want to go everywhere.  also if i had more time i would read more . . .

ARE YOU HAPPY WITH YOUR JOB/SCHOOLING?  i'm happy with where i am right now, though it's just a stop on the road.  i have grad school i want to do and significant traveling, but first i need to have a real job/experience for at least a year.  and i love it.  where i work is full of dedicated people working for something truly worthwhile.  i can't see it any other way.  i miss my minimum wage cafe jobs though just for the experiences i had w/my coworkers and the friendships i developed there.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT A LUCID DREAM IS?  as i know, it's a dream where one realized that they're dreaming and can manipulate the experience or learn from it by being conscious

DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A LUCID DREAMER?  i have had lucid dreams of varying degrees.  my first was when i was in Poland and i dreamt that i got up out of my body and left the room, which would normally go into the woods, but in the dream went into a little town.  i had conversations with many people and then went back.  i've also had times in my life where i lucid dream often.  i'll have fun in those -- telling other people that they're in a dream, and we go and test the limits, explore, have fun, or i'll know that i'm dreaming and do things that wouldn't be socially acceptable in a non-dream world.  sometimes though my dreams are the opposite of lucid and i feel as if i'm experiencing them for days.

DO YOU EAT BEFORE GOING TO BED?  i usually eat dinner later and sometimes i eat before i go to bed

DO YOU HAVE A REGULAR SLEEP SCHEDULE?  now that i work, it's pretty regular.  i get about 7 hours of sleep.

DO YOU DREAM DURING NAPS?  sometimes i have really intense dream images as i fall asleep, like a parade of strange things that don't add up

DO YOU SELF-ANALYZE YOUR DREAMS?  not too much, because a lot of my dreams are intense and usually violent.  some of my best life experiences, or most intense, or strangest, have been in my dreams.  i consider them a part of my life.
