When people first meet me, they don't always know how to handle my
personality. I'm sweet, enthusiastic, and incredibly extroverted.
If I spend an entire day without communicating with other people, I
start to feel deprived of social interaction and need to remedy
that by going out and doing something awesome. I laugh a lot and I
ask pointed questions.
A typical weekday for me involves getting up at 5:30 or 6, going
for a quick run, getting ready for work while dancing around my
apartment, going to work, either going to my other job or meeting
friends for a drink or some kind of event, coming home to cook
dinner or going out for dinner, reading a book or watching crappy
reality TV and going to sleep.
On the weekends...well... spontaneity is the best option, unless
I've planned something out already. I'm great at planning things (I
do it for a living) but it's nice to just get up and go sometimes
without thinking about it, you know?
What I’m doing with my life
I love life! And when I say that, I'm serious. Beauty and joy are everywhere and I try to appreciate them in whatever form they take. I spend as much time as possible doing fun things with the people I care about. My career...well, I love that, too.
I’m really good at
Getting up early. I'm a morning person and I don't need coffee to be peppy and upbeat at 6 am. Also, I'm terrific at soothing friends who are upset and being confided in. I'm fantastic at emoting and discussing feelings.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told that I'm "precious," and that I have a great smile/laugh.
I smile tons. Also, they notice that I'm not shy about saying
what's on my mind in the least offensive way possible, especially
if someone asks for my opinion. It's not outspokenness, but I tend
to be more direct than some.
People also notice that I have large eyes, straight teeth and a
laid back, accommodating temperament.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Pride and Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Bachelor, Parks and
Rec, Community, Indian food, Oh, the Places You'll Go and all kinds
of music. ALL kinds. I take music on a song by song basis and don't
discriminate based on genre or popular appeal.
The six things I could never do without
My family, music, a cozy pair of wool socks, soy lattes, lip balm
and blue jeans. Besides things number one and two, I'm sure there
are plenty of others that are more important to me than the other
four that I listed...but I just can't think of what they are right
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How nice it would be to go outside for a walk, especially if it's a
sunny day. Also, which direction to go with my professional life a
year or two down the line.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends at a wine bar, staying in to watch a documentary or romantic comedy, doing laundry or on my way to someplace really excellent. Hopefully the latter. Ideally, I'm out doing something terrific...which varies based on my mood.
You should message me if
You're a fan of great conversations. I might not be too chatty on this whole profile thingy, but in real life I'm a chatter-in-a-box!
In all seriousness, please message me if you're not only looking to hook up. If you're capable of talking about something other than your job, that's a good thing. Please be a little zesty. I love me some spice. No boring drones. I want you to be enthusiastic, optimistic and carefree (within reason). You should be a joyful person. And smart, funny, respectful and ambitious.
Or, if you aren't those things...well, we probably won't get along.
