My self-summary
My name is Amanda. I am a middle child and a product of two [awesome] hippies. I love everything that they have taught me. People tell me that I am odd, and I am okay with that. I am also a nerd (I have a special place in my heart for Leonard Nimoy, RIP 😭). Holding hands is one of my favorite things.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to figure it out!

Also, I just recently jumped on the fitness wagon. I'm not running any marathons as of right now, but I'm feeling pretty good!
I’m really good at
Multitasking.
Reading people.
Driving.
Baking.
Cooking.
Adapting.
Growing my own food.
Picking out the perfect greeting cards.

I was told that I didn't seem as modest as my name suggests, so here are a couple of things that I am not very good at.

Mental math.
Oil painting.
Being graceful. :)
Remembering birthdays.
Chin-ups.
Die, der, oder das.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height. People also comment often about my long eyelashes.

This is only a taste of what I listen to. I try not to limit myself when it comes to music, I can honestly appreciate any genre. So if you have any suggestions when it comes to music that you think I should check out send me a message!

Food: I like tacos and sushi, I don't like eating any kind of melon and I'm allergic to rhubarb. I LOVE cooking.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I'm headed. Also where and when I can buy some land.

One of my life goals is to be a farmer. If that isn't cool with you, it's probably not going to work out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am in no way exaggerating, and please don't try to test this, but I am terrified of E.T.
You should message me if
You dance like David Byrne.

You're a tall man with a beard (the beard is not a requirement, but it's definitely a plus).

You're looking for an adventure partner.
