Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As a kid I would pick up stray puppies and bring them home with me
and my Mum would't let me keep them. As an adult it hasn't changed
that much, now my landlord wont let me keep them.
I ate ants once as a snack (true story!); the point being that I
will try anything at least once. I do not want to miss out on
anything that I might like and only way to find that out is to keep
trying different things.
About four years ago I stepped on a treadmill and ended up with the
worst shin splints ever.... after walking half a mile! I decided to
do something about the way this made me feel. Since that day I have
run a couple of marathons, a couple of half marathons, bunch on
10K's. About a year ago I went barefoot, about 2 days after that I
decided I love my toes and do not want to loose them! I now run in
minimalistic shoes and, I recently finished my first Half marathon
in those. (Well this was a while ago, I just finished my first
I like sports but cannot for the life of me remember name of the
teams or athletes or the scores. Also, I consistently loose my
march madness bracket and end up buying beers for everyone else (in
a best case scenario). I love watching movies and TV too but I can
never think of the right answers in Trivia.
I have been stared at in the "T" because I thank the driver when I
disembark. It bothered me initially but I guess its more of a
Midwestern thing (where I spent 6 years) and it will take some time
before people here start doing it.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
So recently I caved in and got a smart phone! I think its one of
those things that you don't even realize that you needed until you
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I just realized that the more questions I answer on OKC, the less I
match with others. What does that say about me? hmm.....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If not working-
at the gym
or running along Charles (seriously its pretty awesome)
or on a beer fueled cooking spree while listening to music; may be
singing along Sinatra/ Freddie in an Indian accent
All of the above.
