My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an artist; I've been drawing cartoons since I was an itty(er) bitty(er) person who could barely hold a pencil. I was a champion competitive tap dancer growing up and I've picked it back up at the CSMA. I also repair and sew plush creatures, write poetry, write short stories and needle felt.

I have a sharp sense of humor. I grew up in a close family of sarcastic, warm, funny people, so I'm well-versed in the art of making you laugh. I am witty and delightfully snide but I am also not above poop jokes. Almost nothing is sacred when it comes to me making a crass jibe, especially when I'm with my equally deranged best friend. Consider yourself warned (or hopefully blessed?).

I am not radical. I'm also not apathetic. I just feel like we would all get along better if we stopped loudly proclaiming how we think the world should work and how people should live their lives and just saw each other as people instead of ideological enemies or potential converts to our own ways of thinking. If you're one of the plethora of self-stroking and preachy religious, political or even dietary types in this area, you keep right on walkin', lady! You're barking up the wrong non-blowhard tree!

I love to learn. I have always been guided by intellect and genuine wonder and curiosity about the world. If we go into the woods on a hike, I'm the one stopping every fifty feet to observe every odd piece of fungus or trying to discern which type of bird I just heard. Soaking in information is my rocket fuel.

I am perpetually analytical and introspective. As a result, I know who I am and what I want pretty intimately. That being said, what I want -although I am perfectly fine in my own skin and going about most of my daily endeavors alone- is to build a stable, happy, long-term relationship with someone special who can be as invested in cultivating a loving partnership as I am, once we get to know each other. You would think that on a dating site, that would be relatively easy to find, but it isn't. I just know that someone out there who says she's ready, able and self-aware enough to walk that path actually means it; the trick is finding her. Maybe it's you. :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
On the topic of learnin' and knowin' shit... besides juggling a pretty swell job wrangling Slinkies and stuffed cheetahs at a local toy shop, I'm in college at SUNY Cortland for a B.A. in Professional Writing. My ultimate goal is to be a grant writer, even though I'm sure it would make many of my professors happy if I pursued a career as a novelist. In an ideal world, I'd opt for something more creative, but I'm tired of a history of my paychecks being most useful as material to burn in a trashcan hobo fire to keep warm.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing the best in people (admittedly to a fault at times), introspection, being little spoon, being big spoon, winning stuffed animals from claw machines and carnival games, using chopsticks, getting belongings and clothing caught on mailboxes, running into door frames and walls, foreign languages, putting together care packages, rugby tackles, experimenting with spices, finding four-leaf clovers, falling asleep during movies, helping loved ones feel better, losing at solitaire, winning at Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit, befriending wild baby birds and remembering a zillion little bits of trivia in my "sponge brain," as my friends lovingly call it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I always hope it's my big, brown eyes because I inherited them from my Dad and they happen to be what made my Mom fall for him. More than likely, though, people first notice that I'm short. I've heard every obnoxious short joke in the book since I was a kid.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Holidays
2. Snow
3. Loved ones
4. Something new to learn
5. My pets (my cats, Fruit Bat and Space Invader; and my ferret, Zucchini)
6. A sense of accomplishment
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Loved ones, change, plush creature designs, what the future might hold for me, romance and all of its possibilities
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Enjoying the splendor and majesty of the great indoors. I'm an introvert (not to be confused with a misanthrope, a social cripple or a serial killer) and I also have a lot of commitments during the week. I typically don't work or have classes on Friday nights so it's a good time for me to lay low, take a breather and recharge my batteries. It's not necessary that I do that alone, though. If I'm partnered up, it's prime cuddle time!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I grew up in the familial equivalent of a goddamn unicorn: A functional family with parents who have been happily married since they were 19 and 22. They're still my role models for a happy partnership and I really want and admire what they have; I just haven't found it. I worry a lot that our culture has gotten so disconnected, self-centered and polarized (not to mention so heavily divorced) in the time since my parents met that I'm not going to easily find someone who really knows or even wants to know how to create a dynamic of mutual, equal love and care between two people. I keep trying and I stay hopeful, though.
