I moved to Manassas in March of 2011, so I'm still getting used to the NOVA area.
I have a job working for the government.
I'm easily amused.
I don't like to give up easily and I can be a bit stubborn when I sent my mind on something.
I've been to over 40 states and 5 countries.
I went to Alaska in June 2011 and I can say it's a truly beautiful state and is probably the prettiest place I've ever been. I even had the chance to take a helicopter ride up to a glacier and go dog sledding.
Speaking of which, I LOVE dogs and I don't think I've ever met a dog that didn't like me. I think huskies and german sheppards are the most beautiful breeds and I'd like to own one someday (don't think it's fair to big dogs to keep them in an apartment so I don't have one right now).
I hope this doesn't make me sound spoiled, but because I've traveled so much I now prefer to go on activity trips, such as white water rafting or skydiving, rather than going to go look at something.
I can cook around a dozen things pretty well and I'm trying to learn more.
I'm pretty open minded and give most things at least a few tries before I decide to like/dislike it.
I will admit that I do not like sports or dancing. I've tried several times to get into them but they're not for me.
I like to speak plainly and directly with people.
I'm not afraid to speak my mind.
I don't play games.
Smoking is deal breaker for me.
I'm pretty flexible (in the nonphysical sense for those of you with a dirty mind ...) and I can adapt to change pretty well.
I'm pretty good with most things electronic, and quite often have to rescue the more "seasoned" members in my office.
This year I've really fallen in love with trap shooting and I've been going just about every weekend (shooting those orange clay disks with a shotgun). I'm starting to get pretty good at it too! Pretty much every day I go is a great day for me (even the times where I get a score lower than what's acceptable for me, haha).
I love to watch movies and play video games with a good story when I'm relaxing at home. I promise I'm not the type that's 400 lbs living in my mother's basement demanding hotpockets and playing for 12 hours straight. I also don't spend $16,000 dollars on an in-game sword (someone actually did ... seriously google it ... mind blowing).
I love to do exciting things like wake-boarding, skydiving, rafting, etc. whenever I get the chance. I've still never been snow skiing so I'd love to try that.
I also love going to amusement parks to ride roller coasters and going to Ceader Point Ohio is on my bucket list.
I work out at least 4 days a week (trying to up it to 6).
TL;DR: I've traveled a lot. I like to read, watch movies, and play video games when I'm home. Rest of the time I like hanging out with friends and doing exciting stuff.
