Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a bit of a nerd, a bit of a badass, and a bit of girly-girl all
at once. I'm quite pleased with the combination, as it means I can
do pretty much anything. I moved out of my hometown at 18 to join
the army, and three years ago I switched from full-time to National
Guard. I complain on a regular basis about the army, but in all
honesty I love it.
I've had several years of training through the army on stuff most
guys have wet dreams over, I am (or used to be) bi-lingual, I'm in
a trade school learning stenography, and I consider myself
auto-didactic. And I am highly annoyed that none of those options
are represented on the 'education' tab of most online profiles,
hence my decision to go with 'Space Camp' on this one.
I love to read and write and am part of the way through writing my
first novel. (Well my....fourth or fifth, but I didn't get far into
the others, so they don't count.) I gravitate toward the
sci-fi/fantasy genre. Most works on the Best Seller list,
especially if they are dramatic, just annoy me.
I cuss fluently, but (usually) only when appropriate. I get pissed
off when people think that because I look young and cute, they have
to apologize for every 'fuck' and 'damn' that comes out of their
mouths. They probably should apologize, just not to me. Being an
adult and all, I swear I'm not going to get the vapors at anything
On the whole, though, I'm a pretty easy person to get along with. I
tend to be low-key and not cause waves. If I don't like something,
I'll just ignore or avoid it instead of raise a fuss. (Except
online, where I'm just as susceptible to jackassery as the everyone
else.) I like to have fun and be active, and I still think
Disneyland is the greatest place on earth. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm going to school, I'm writing, I'm always on the lookout for fun
stuff to try. Basically...I'm just living it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A bunch of rather random things. I've been told I'm a pretty good
writer, though. I'm a half-decent shot. I absorb new concepts like
a sponge, so teachers usually like me.
I also seem to be uncommonly good at scaring away dogs, even though
I love them. :(

trying to put a color to them.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Like I said, I gravitate toward sci-fi/fantasy. I'll also
eat up history books like no one's business and I recently got into
economics. I almost never go for straight-up 'literature,' but I'll
try something if it's recommended to me. Mysteries and Romances I
find amusing, but they're still a guilty pleasure when I'm in the
Movies: Dramas and RomComs usually make me gag, but every now and
then I'll find one I like. Mostly I stick to Comedy and Action. Or
both. I love Boondock Saints.
Music: Any kind of rock. 80s rock, alternative rock, hard rock.
Okay, any kind except the kind that likes to scream incoherently. I
also like country, but I have no idea what the fascination is with
Food: I am a steak-and-potatoes girl, all the way.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, a home, my computer, an internet connection, ...er, food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Oh, it changes quite often. Right now it's the state of public
education. Or just about how soul-crushingly huge the universe is.
Or how to get out of the latest corner I've written myself into. Or
why people on message boards are jerks. Or how so many bad books
got published. (Seriously, there has to be a trick, because they
didn't do it on talent.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a bar, on my computer, or re-watching Firefly for the millionth
time. Friday is my lazy day. :)
Saturday, however, I'm more likely to get off my ass and actually

Fair warning: I ignore messages from guys that can't spell or
punctuate correctly. Words are my passion, and I'm not interested
in someone who can't use them correctly.
