One day, I hope to be able to say that I have stepped foot on every continent! I absolutely love traveling and nothing makes me happier than a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants road trip to somewhere I've never been before, so long as there's good company in the car with me. If it's an adventure, I'll always be game! I love camping. I've camped all across the country...but I've never been to the BWCA. Again, because I make sense.
In just about every aspect of life, I would be willing to try just about anything once.
I currently have one small tattoo on my ankle and I have plans to get a good sized back piece done fairly soon, as well as several other ideas. I just need the money... I make sure any ink I put on my body means a lot to me. I've also decided to start the ear lobe stretching process. So if plugs and tattoos are not your thing, it would probably be best to walk away.
Even though I'm a scientist, I'd like to think I'm a pretty creative person (I don't have a dominant side - left or right brained - so yay both!). Now that I'm out of college, I've found myself with a lot more time for art so I've been drawing and painting a lot more than I have in years. This makes me very happy.
Also, I can speak fluent Wookie.
I am currently a radio meteorologist, meaning I do forecasts for cities over the radio all across the Midwest. It's actually a fairly entertaining job, although it requires me to work pretty odd hours because the weather never sleeps.
I'm a total horror movie addict. I would watch an action or a horror movie over some cheesy romance any day! My favorites would be Twister, Jurassic Park, The Shining, Shaun of the Dead, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Donnie Darko, the Evil Dead trilogy, the list goes on. I love really bad movies too. I love mocking them. Instead of waking up early on the weekends to watch cartoons, I woke up early to watch MST3K.
I sadly no longer have cable (not really that sad) so I rarely watch TV.
I very much enjoy video games as well. I have a pile of games that I'm kinda trying to work through, though I've decided to work my way through the pile of indie games I've gotten through various Humble Bundles.
I'll really listen to anything except country. Though I like a lot of folk music... I don't get it either. Though I can't play anything, I adore music and it's a big part of who I am. I'm almost always listening to something. If pressed for a favorite band, I'd probably respond with the Foo Fighters.
Food is delicious. My weakness is sushi. I would eat it every day. And fucking Chipotle. I also love cooking! My favorite thing to do is take a bunch of random stuff I have and make it delicious. There's certain things that I'm really good at cooking, but I enjoy messing around and making new things!!
I love trying new beers! I'm mostly a fan of stouts and porters, but I enjoy trying just about everything. I'll always try something, even if I think I won't like it! I would actually enjoy learning how to home brew. If you have any starter/protips, I would love to hear them!
I would also really, really, REALLY love to do this some time:
Oh, and raw cookie dough is the shit.
How all of life is Simple Harmonic Motion.
How much I miss playing rugby but know at this point in my life I don't have time for it.
How fucking awesome it would be to have a large-scale Nerf battle in a randomly selected town somewhere.
**Okay folks, no one seems to get that this is an Austin Powers reference. This saddens me. Work with me, people!!**
If you love good conversation.
You know how to swing dance and would enjoy teaching me.
You'd enjoy pushing me out of my comfort zone in fun and awesome ways.
Or if you are willing to work out some kind of back rub exchange type deal.
So, if you are intrigued and STILL READING, please, shoot me a message!
