Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just moved back to Washington, after pursuing a double bachelor's
degree in conservation social science/wildlife resources in Idaho,
then teaching for the summer in central Oregon. Planning on going
for a grad degree in marine biology. I'm originally from
Mississippi, but moved up to the San Juan Islands in Washington as
a kid, so I am quite used to the rain and the constant changing
weather. Give me a tent and a campfire, and I'm set!
I generally am recognized as the girl with the Southern accent, who
is usually out taking pictures(I enjoy taking wildlife and nature
photography), or just exploring(especially if there is a
thunderstorm). I do enjoy days/nights in, but life is too short to
constantly sit around!
In a nutshell, I'm down to earth with a mischievous streak, I love
to stay active, and for what it's worth, I can rock a pretty
awesome afro, cook nearly anything, and I'm a pretty easygoing
person. I like to think that after being very shy, and quiet
through my childhood, that my personality is making up for all
I also feel a little awkward every time I try to explain myself in
the format of an "about me" box, simply because I highly doubt a
few paragraphs can fully explain myself. Feel free to ask me
questions, I enjoy meeting new people and having good, deep
In 5 words, I'm : honest, fiery, quick-witted, kind-hearted, and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In essence, I'm studying to eventually be a marine biologist and
research educator. Just finished school in Moscow, Idaho (not
Russia, like most people automatically think), and am still getting
used to the area again. Taking a break for a year or 2 to work and
save up, then planning on graduate school for marine biology.
In the meantime, I work, relax outside whenever I can, and always
on the lookout for a good karaoke spot and enjoy being around
people. Got recommendations for places to check out? I could use a
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been told I'm good at a lot of things. By this point I'm just
in the business of enjoying what I do and making myself better in
everything. But the biggest one I get comments on is my singing

I've been told I have great eyes. Aside from that, I think most
notice my personality. A lot of my friends would describe me as the
one who is always dragging everyone on an adventure. I'm usually
the one with the quick wit, making people laugh, and being random.
I also have been known to sing loudly in my car, entertaining the
people next to me without realizing. I also have a deeper voice
than most women. Not like Barry White deep, but people tend to tell
me I sound like a jazz singer. (It would make sense since I sing
Aside from those....I think it really is different with each person
what they notice first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've always had a habit of going to the library every few days and
staggering out into the daylight with 10 books or more. Some of my
favorites include "Fahrenheit 451", "Faust", "The Metamorphosis",
"Out of the Silent Planet", "Frankenstein", any work by Edgar Allan
Poe, etc. I tend to read a lot of philosophy and mythology.
In terms of movies, I enjoy action, adventure and comedy.
Basically, as long as it's not too sappy or romantic, I'll sit down
and watch it. I also will quote movies from time to time.
Music wise, I tend to listen to a lot of R&B, like John Legend,
Alicia Keys, and the like. I also enjoy hip hop music (the Roots,
Common, Lupe Fiasco) and on any given day, I'll sing at least one
song from a musical. I'm known for randomly bursting into song. My
music tastes have expanded to jazz, rock and the occasional
I'm not picky, but if I have to choose a favorite, you can never go
wrong with Greek or Japanese! Coming from the South, I love Cajun
food and consider myself lucky that I can replicate family recipes
in the kitchen. Also, I love cooking for my friends. I grew up with
a family that cooked almost every night, so I know my way around
the kitchen without blowing anything to high heaven. :P
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My phone (I know, I could live without it, but it's honestly how
people get hold of me. :P)
My clarinet. (Look, I realize the instrument sounds like the player
is strangling a duck, but to a kid in marching band, music is life)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
There's a lot I think about, but normally, it runs the range of the

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, if I'm not doing homework, I'm usually with friends, at home
playing my good ol' Super Nintendo and original NES, cooking for a
group of friends, or researching traveling to some new place I
haven't explored yet :P
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have synesthesia, which basically means I see colors when I
listen to music or other sounds, including voices. I can also sense
smells and taste with certain words. It's like listening in 3-D. So
if I begin talking about the way music or sound looks to me, I've
not lost my mind, nor am I on drugs. It's just a quirk I
I'm hell bent on visiting a hot spring. I've also never been jet
skiing and that needs to change.
