My self-summary
I don't know what my spirit animal is, but if I had to guess, I'd say it's a goldfish. Like a goldfish, I'm colorful, gregarious, inexpensive, good with kids, and constantly forget who and where I am. Additionally while I come in crazy-ass flavors like "x-treme pizza" and "cupcake", everyone prefers the original cheddar.

As far as online dating goes, If you're wondering what I’m looking for, honestly and kindness are the most important things, especially when paired together. I rather enjoy fake arrogance but I detest fake humility. I love women who don’t judge people, or at least try not to act on it when they do :) I really appreciate people understand the importance of and are willing to endure the discomfort of speaking honestly, hopefully with some degree of tact. My ideal woman wouldn't be entitled and wouldn't think that the world owes her things that it doesn’t owe all other decent people. And perhaps most importantly, while she may have been humbled and disappointed by life, she hasn't let these experiences jade her.

Suffice it to say, I'm looking for a great friend, a companion, and a lover. Everything else is icing on the cake, although a good sense of sarcastic humor may be a prerequisite.

A few additional quirks you’ll probably want to know include:
- I stop to pet animals when I see them. Like all the time. Mid-conversation or with bags of groceries in hand. I just can't resist the cuteness.

- I’m easily baited into conversations about philosophy, psychology, science, and other nerdy stuff, although I promise not to bore you unless you've been very very naughty.

- At times I've been known to break into fits of movie quoting, kind of like a Jekyl and Hyde thing, except I don’t wear a top hat and kill people.
What I’m doing with my life
Volunteer work at a sexual assault crisis center, on my way to grad school to become psychiatric nurse practitioner , doing research for a non-profit, and, of course, chilling.

I've recently started getting into mindfulness and yoga, as part of my "trying to be the best version of myself" project. Results are pending.

I set my automatic email reply to "Sent from my dumb iPhone" and then forgot about it about a year ago and just noticed, like hundreds of emails later.
I’m really good at
Fixing stuff. Productivity increases with beer and pizza.
Being way too sarcastic for my own good / aka putting my foot in my mouth.
Cooking (Def. passion of mine)
Abbreviating definite/definitely as def.
Being a space cadet.
Acting as source of cheap labor.
Taking the conversation to that next level
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice and how I should be in radio. Or is it ON radio? I can never remember.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As far as movies go, think Evil Dead + Shawshank Redemption + Being John Malkovich + No Country for Old Men. I'm not sure what that equals, but I'm willing to bet it'd be the shit.

I have a problem constantly reading non-fiction books. It's not a big deal or anything; I just break out into hives and start sweating if I don't. And then wake up in forest, naked, covered in animal blood. Like I said, not a big deal.

In my opinion, the best kind of art is stand-alone, has layered depth and meaning, uses no more than needed, and contains vibrant color; real or metaphorical.

Indie, Hip-hop, rock, classic rock, and alternative are all choice.
Currently digging "Gold" by Chet Faker.

I've never met a well-made meal I didn't like.
The six things I could never do without
snooze alarm,
swear words,
bag fries (aka bagglers),
other people
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What would happen if Pinocchio said, "My nose is about to grow."

Why Sandra Bullock seemingly never ages. My current theory is that she is a Highlander. There can be only ONE!

Nonsensical questions to ask small children.
On a typical Friday night I am
Silly goose, there is no typical Friday!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love The Princess Bride.

I blush like super easy. Sometimes cause I'm embarrassed, sometimes for like no reason, and then on weekends, holidays, and all throughout May.

When I was three I microwaved a snail. True story.
You should message me if
You have a "regular ability to express certain emotions, especially mirth or delight, by a series of spontaneous, usually unarticulated sounds often accompanied by corresponding facial and bodily movements." (Flailing body movements are acceptable).

Uber dooper funtime special bonus points if you have animals. Unless, of course, you have a cage free spider and scorpion collection.

Disclaimer: I don't play games. Unless of course they are board games (Settlers of Catan is the shit). But seriously, I don't do that "3 day waiting then call" crap or name drop my female friends to make you super jelly. If I like you I'll tell you. Straight to your face! You've been warned...
