My self-summary
I am introspective and over think things more often than I'd like.

But some things I know for sure that I'm looking for is a partner to share experiences with. Someone to create new experiences with. Someone to share thoughts and feelings with. To wake up next to, be comfortable around. Communication is essential, as is mutual respect.

As for me though:

1. I'm more shy than outgoing, but once you get to know me, you can really get to know the real me.
2. I have a "technically inclined" mind so I love bullet points and numbering items to format them easier.
3. I'm an open book and am far more curious to get to know people than I am about judging anyone's particular situation or beliefs.
4. Get to know me, you won't regret it.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work in the technology/software industry as a consultant. I love my job and love the travel opportunities it grants me.
I’m really good at
* Making people feel comfortable enough to open up to me
* Over analyzing everything
* Computers and technology - no surprise I work in software
* Taking care of those I care about
* Making people laugh. Usually on purpose; sometimes not.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm very goofy. Physically, though I guess they'd notice my smile. I've been told I have nice eyes too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These are just favorites/what pops in my head. Far from a thorough list :)

Books:
I prefer non-fiction books - reading and writing - because books like "Confessions of an Economic Hitman", "Freakonomics" and "Money for Nothing" are far greater than anything that can be made up.

Movies:
My two favorite movies are "Shawshank Redemption" and "Memento" but there are far too many documentaries to name.

Shows:
Was a fan of "Breaking Bad" and "Weeds" on the serious side, but comedies I enjoy "Seinfeld" and "King of Queens" in the past. Now "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is definitely my current favorite. "The Big Bang Theory" is a close second.

Music:
I enjoy a diverse span of music - never really been a big fan of country but do enjoy Blues/Jazz. If you know of a good Blues or Jazz bar around Portland please let me know!

Pearl Jam is my favorite band overall but love Norah Jones and her voice too!

Food:
Italian, Mexican and Thai are great go-to cuisines for me. I love sushi and Chinese food as well. Not really picky when it comes to food :-)
The six things I could never do without
Assuming the basics are covered, I'd have to go first with spending time with family/friends, followed by a sense of purpose and making others laugh. The last three would be...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
* What to do with the rest of my life
* Making sure people I know are happy
* Wondering what it would be like to have a time machine, and how far back I would go...
* What kind of home based business I could create
* How many bullet points I should create - how much is too much? What's the fewest number I should use? Do they help people to understand me better or annoy them? Why am I asking so many questions?
* If fate really exists...if I'm supposed to just let things happen or work harder
On a typical Friday night I am
doing any number of things. Sometimes I go out, sometimes I stay in and relax. Just depends on my schedule and mood...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am one of those who will become your best friend and be there for you when you call with a problem at 2am. Don't ever say "sorry for calling so late" - if you need to talk, call me. No need to apologize.
You should message me if
* You consider yourself an easy going girl and at least a little independent/self sufficient
* You love deep conversations about pretty much anything. My personal favorites happen to be talking about life, love, what makes you happy, what to do with your life, politics, finance, religion, philosophy
* You like my profile and/or just want to get to know me more
* You think I seem cool and would just like to chat, see if we click and we can go from there...
* You're horribly bored by my profile and think I should rewrite it. Hey I'm up for constructive criticism :)
