Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I go back and forth between wishing I Lived in the past and
experiencing what our future may be like. Alas, I straddle the two
and thrive in the present.
When I was a kid, my dad and I would spend countless hours staying
up looking at the stars or driving home from soccer practice
talking about the "what ifs" in life. Sometimes that may have come
in the form of "what's out there?' or analyzing any number of
current going-ons in the world. To this day, if you get me going
enough, or get enough wine in me, I still Love discussing almost
any topic deeply.
So, yeah, I Love getting passionate and involved in whatever I'm
doing. I have a degree in theatre which allowed me to explore the
intensity of people with an artistic passion. And now I'm working
on my PhD in Special Education where I get to ask the "what ifs"
and "whys" about life with a whole new kind of intensity. So no
matter whether we're discussing something serious or frivolously
laughing at the TV, I Love passion and honest moments. I crave ALL
kinds of mental stimulation! That's why movies, while fun, aren't
my ideal first date... I want to get to know you :)
So what kind of person do I tend to gravitate towards? One who has
a passion for something, ANYthing really. It doesn't have to be
academic or even world-changing, just someone that Loves what they
do unabashedly (or is trying to figure out that part of them,
sometimes that is very sexy, too ;) And with that, I think it's
very attractive when someone Loves being with me but also Loves a
healthy balance with their friends or alone time.
My mantra tends to be one of positive regard and acceptance for the
way things are. It seems to me that when people accept situations
for what they are and don't try to change them, peace tends to take
over. And when peace takes over, I think happiness finds its way in
to our lives. I Love meeting open-minded people, ones that will
push me and help me to grow. I do my very best to accept people for
where they are in life (even though sometimes frustration happens
;) I tend to laugh a lot and prefer playful banter. I Love when I
can inspire people to go after the things in life they Love . . .
after all, the most important people in my life have done the very
same for me. And maybe we can even inspire each other.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on my PhD in Special Education at Penn State right now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm obsessed with anything baseball and play on a local softball
team here :) I'm usually game for just about any sport! Also Love
playing music (jazz sax and piano).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hopefully they notice my openness and an outgoing desire to meet
people and to get to know them. I Love getting to know people as
they truly are. If you're sad be sad, if you're happy be happy and
anything in between :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I could read David Sedaris all day and all night :) Just fun
hilarious reading (written well). I also Love Malcom Gladwell's
books (Blink, Tipping Point etc.) and anything that takes me on a
journey, whether it's simple like Harry Potter or a Nobel prize
winning piece of literature.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I admit, I'd be troubled without the internet :/
Feel naked without my phone.
Something to play music on.
Books/reading of some kind.
My bike (way preferred over my car).
My temperpedic pillow haha...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I'm going and what I'm going to do after Penn State. I'm not
from here and am a self-proclaimed city boy. I also think a ton
about my research projects, Love, life and accepting all the
moments that we stumble upon and a ton of other things that wont'
be done justice in this section . . .
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, boys, we're in State College . . . soooo, I prefer being with
friends drinking wine or chilling. Maybe a wine and board game
night :) Maybe a movie night. Something chill, but definitely not
against having a fun night and going out!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've made some mistakes in the past . . . and I still have some
growing to do . . .and some more mistakes to make . . . but hoping
people are on my same page and we can go through stuff together.
