Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, I grew up in Conyers but always wanted to live in city. I
like to think that I'm funny, people like to say that I'm silly,
and others complain that I'm sarcastic. I'm a bit adventurous,
usually in the form of travel when I can pull it off. I also am
pretty easy going and can enjoy a good patio and beer as much as
night at home watching netflix. I might seem a little shy at first,
but that goes away as you get to know me. What I definitely am
though is kind, a good friend, and the requisite amount of stupid
that everyone should be (just enough to make life interesting but
not enough to regret). Some random facts about me, I'm from the
south yet I don't like grits, for the longest time I seriously
thought flamenco dancing was flamingo dancing, and to this day I
cannot spell the word bureaucrat without looking it up
first...which I did in order to write that sentence.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I studied history, international affairs, and also some languages
that I can either speak very well or at least fake it for a couple
of words. I then joined the Peace Corps and taught English in
Kazakhstan for two years which was terrifying, frustrating, and
amazing all at the same time. After surviving that fiasco, I moved
back and bought a house near Grant Park and am enjoying settling
into the city. I graduated from Kennesaw with a masters in conflict
management and am loving the roller coaster world of the Job
Search! Right now I work for an audio visual company which keeps me
busy and at least gets me into Dragoncon for free each year.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, frisbee related games, riding horses, remembering obscure
facts about random movies, joking around, and climbing trees
(though honestly that was done mostly in my younger days).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like a lot of things but usually read books about history,
politics, and science fiction. For example The Great Game, Ender's
Game, Vernor Vinge's books. I also like most genres of music. As
long as it is a good song I don't care if it's pop, rap, or
country. Though blues is probably my favorite. As for movies, a few
examples: The Big Sleep, Arsenic and Old Lace, Escape from New
York, Top Secret, Star Wars, Anchorman... and many more. My
favorite food tends to be anything that tastes good, and I love to
try cooking new recipes. My favorite show by far is Community, but
I also like Suits, Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Silicon Valley, Game
of Thrones, and more...dvr is a great invention.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well, indoor plumbing is pretty nice. Besides that, beer, movies,
traveling (or at least the hope of traveling soon), friends,
family. Not that I'm materialistic but 6 seems rather limiting.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things that confuse me..... Also, Places that I still want to see
and other stuff on my bucket list.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing with friends out or at home watching something while doing
a crossword puzzle
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was captain of the Model United Nations team in college.
