How to distill myself into a couple of paragraphs? Let's see, I'm a really girly-girl, but I hang out with the guys a lot. I'm one of the most patient people I know, and I always try and figure out people's motivation for doing things. I think it comes from studying theatre in college. I love to travel; I spent a semester in London in college and if it wasn't so far from everyone I love, I could totally picture myself living there. The beach is my second-favorite place to be. I'm happiest with sand between my toes and saltwater in my hair. I also like to push my limits and face the things that scare me. Life is waaay too short to be miserable all the time, so I prefer to see my glass as always half-full, even if I might not like what's in it at the time. I believe the secret to a happy life is old friends, good conversation, and comfy furniture.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm living my dream by writing and getting paid to do it.
It totally rocks!
I’m really good at
I am a really, really good friend. I'm great at untangling other
people's problems and keeping their secrets, athough I'm not so
great at handling my own. Something about me makes total strangers
tell me their lives' stories, and thanks to surviving sorority
rush, I can make conversation with the modern equivalent of Helen
I can finish reading a novel in three hours. I make awesome
homemade waffles and quesadillas. I'm also good at walking in
ridiculously high heels. Even though I know basically nothing about
sports, I make a great mascot. I look hot in a jersey and bring the
team good luck. ;o)
The first things people usually notice about me
It's a toss-up between my eyes and my smile. I get a lot of
compliments on both of them. The eyes are a family trait, and the
smile I have to thank my parents for, since they paid for the
braces that gave it to me. =)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love a good mystery, historical fiction, or biography, or
sometimes even just crap chicklit. Love the Travel Channel, TLC,
BBCAmerica, and Netflix. Music; U2, Jimmy Buffett, Robbie Williams,
anything 80's, especially hairbands. Not a big foodie.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why most guys don't bother to fill out the basics on their
profiles. If you can't bother to do even that, it doesn't bode well
for the future, sweetheart. What's the deal with sushi? Why is it
SO popular??? I admit I've only tried it once, but that was more
than enough. Sushi is not my friend.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, I'm probably either at home, working on a project, or
hanging out with my friends and extended family. Nothing too
terribly exciting, but it keeps me out of trouble.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have the WORST sense of direction ever! Even though I've lived in
the same general area my whole life, I've gotten lost going from my
old house to my new. (More than once.) My dad just bought me a new
GPS for my car, though. Good old Tom and I are working well
You should message me if
Any of this interests you, you think I'm cute, or short, smart,
quirky blondes are your type.
