My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I tend to love attention but am often struck by terrible shyness. I love people but sometimes want nothing more than to be by myself. I am endlessly patient when dealing with children. But that patience evaporates when an adult with a shopping cart is blocking the aisle because they can’t decide what orange juice to buy. I love living in a city with easy access to great bars, restaurants and culture. But, I grew up in the country, so I am quite often overtaken by an overwhelming need to see a tree that is not surrounded on all sides with concrete. I hate paying for fresh flowers at whole foods; I'd rather pick them.

Some might call me artsy. I’m certainly not beret-wearing artsy, but I’d agree that I’m creative. I am by no means a scrap booker, but I really enjoy making things, especially in the kitchen. I love the fact that if something is homemade, it’s entirely unique, without precedent. Art, music and books rock my world. Not sure how to explain it without seeming cheesy, but a good book, painting or song carries me to another time and place, taking me away from my current life, to a life I once lived or would like to live.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've only realized this in the last year or so, but my primary focus over the last 10 years has been my career, to the detriment of other things. I'm trying to change that now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
parallel parking, bargain shopping, laughing until I cry, making other people laugh until they cry, playing with kids, cooking, downloading music, being the center of attention, cooking (but not baking), drawing bathes

But, if I were to dedicate too much of this section to drink preferences, I'd probably be sending the wrong message.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
World peace, of course
