Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there! Greetings from an Okie who has lived in various corners
of the country. I went to school in the midwest and and graduate
school in New Orleans - living in in the Big Easy was quite the
cultural experience. Between Mardi Gras and Jazzfest, it is hard to
believe that I was able to successfully earn my Masters! I have no
idea how the undergrads did it. I love to travel to new countries
(Vietnam last summer) and visiting old favorites (just back from
Paris). I am a daily NY Times and Slate.com reader and usually will
have either MSNBC or SportsCenter on TV. I try to keep up with
foreign affairs as well as national current events but sometimes,
it is just as rewarding to watch the Oscars and provide armchair
commentary on who wore what with my friends. I have a group of
friends that I have gathered along the way in the various chapters
of my life who are tried and true. I am now ready to share my life
and next steps with someone who also wants to enjoy a full life of
friends and family. Humor and kindness are probably the two best
words to describe me but I also want to add that I do have a real
"joie de vivre" mantra that I try to live by and feel that I am
pretty successful in that department.
I am looking for someone who will be my partner in all of this. Not
necessarily my mirror image but someone who is curious and has
their own passions and interests that they want to share with me. A
smart wit and good nature would be ideal.
Hope to hear from you if this piques your interest.

unknown corners in Atlanta.
