My self-summary
Alaska born and raised, I have moved out of state several times only to be drawn back home a few years later.

I am outgoing and personable, and I thrive on new experiences. While I'd ideally like to meet someone to settle down with (and let's face it, isn't that why we are here) settling down does not mean settling.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently working for a local communications company (yes, THAT company) as a commercial services rep. The job pays the bills.

I also commute to the valley one night a week to teach a night class at the community college. The job doesn't pay the bills, but is my passion.
I’m really good at
Convincing the undergrads I teach that I know as much as they think I know.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I fidget and can not sit still for long periods of time. I always seem to have a book on me. I am energetic and it's not because of the copious coffee intake (well perhaps slightly).

Also, I'm told I have an accent. There isn't an 'Alaskan accent', not like the South, or NY, and I do not notice an accent from other Alaskans. Then again, perhaps I am conditioned not to hear fellow Alaskan's accents. Seriously though, there isn't an Alaskan accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: Song of Ice and Fire, LOtR, short stories in the New Yorker and Harper's Mag. I've been on a kick reading modern novels lately, but I find when I finish them they leave little impact.
Suggestions? I

Favorite playwrights:
Albee, Strindberg, Mamet, Simon, Racine, Aeschylus, Moliere, Shakespeare, Wilde, Labute

Like all fans, I eagerly await The Winds of Winter

TV: Until just a few months ago I had not owned a TV in over a decade. Now that I am working for (that company), and they provide free TV service, I have one and do not have to rely on watching shows online.

Plays: As You Like It, Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead, Fat Pig, Under the Yum Yum Tree, Desire Under the Elms, A View From The Bridge, The Birds, The Visitor, The Homecoming, The Owl and the Pussycat, Barefoot in the Park, I Love You, Jimmy Spud, Closer....the list could go on and on....

This list is very out of order...my desk is a cluster of papers, books, and coffee mugs..I suppose it only makes sense that I am all over the place in this box.
The six things I could never do without
Theatre
coffee
something to read
....
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics.

When am I going to have time to crack open whatever it is I am reading at the time.
