My name is Athena. I currently live in Northern California, although I've lived in 7 other states and several different cities inside those states. As you can tell, I like moving around and experiencing different ways of life and different cultures. My favorite place so I've lived so far is definitely California. It has a little bit of everything I love. I love big cities, I love mountains, I love beaches, I love different types of weather but I can never get enough sunshine. I like to joke about how I'm solar powered and can't quite function to my full ability when it's cloudy and rainy outside. My favorite season is Spring. Specifally the end of it because it's starting to warm up enough to go swimming, but you can still see all the pretty spring flowers and smell all the freshly cut healthy grass that exists before summer dries it out. I love spending time outside and adventuring. Anything that has to do with physical activity and heights are my favorite outdoor activities. Climbing buildings, bridges, water towers. Anything to get a good view. I'm a really optimistic person who loves to laugh. I love my smile and brightening other people's days. I have a 2 year old Pomeranian named Milo who is my favorite living being on the planet. He's 5 lbs of pure fuzz and never likes to leave my side. I love working out and dancing in my free time. It's my own kind of therapy. Whenever I start to get down or frustrated, I take my dog on a run, lift some weights, do some yoga, or blast my music in my garage and dance.
