7 Facts about myself
1. I'm originally from good ol' Maryland.
I've got the perks of both a country and city gal :P
2. I eat the skin on a kiwi.
My roommate, who you've met plenty of times, seems to think this is very strange...but HEY it's high in fiber soooo whateve :P
3. I LOVE THE OUTDOORS.
My first job as a teenager was at a campground cleaning cabins and bathhouses (yes, that includes toilets), so I grew a affinity towards the fresh air and outdoors. I also grew up surrounded by farms, so living in the hustle and bustle of Philadelphia, I particularly enjoy and appreciate nature.
4. Aside from Health & Fitness, another interest of mine is Art (+Design).
Actually, I'm a professionally exhibiting artist (www.carleemyers.com) and own two Etsy shops (Zazen Creations & Masturbation Station). Zazen Creations is an etsy shop featuring my own original artwork and custom wood burned items and Maturbation Station is a line of tissue box covers meant to be sold as gag gifts for occasions like bachelor/bachelorette parties, going away gifts, birthdays, etc.
5. I'm a hippie at heart.
I've always been a simple person when it comes to love. I believe we should spread the love and happiness and by doing so anyone can make a dramatic and positive impact on the world.
6. One of my lifelong goals to meet the Dalai Lama.
I've never been a particularly religious person, but I am spiritual and would consider myself someone who does have an amateur interest in Buddhism. I'd love to sit down with the Dalai Lama one day and really pick his brain...or at least have a casual conversation with him (or her, you never know!).
7. I thoroughly enjoy stopping and smelling the roses.
Well, not literally, but every time I go on a walk, run, bike ride or the likes I find myself stopping to admire the little things in life.
