Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey-o! So, I'm a west coast farm girl, transplanted to DC by way of
a couple other states and countries.
Although I'm an office drone, I have an unrequited love for
archaeology and playing in the dirt. I probably spent too much time
watching Indiana Jones as a kid, because I still I enjoy shouting
"it belongs in a museum!" I spent most of my childhood jumping
through Indian ruins and digging up pottery and arrowheads.
I love museums and libraries. Like any aspiring eccentric, I study
languages in my free time. So far, I have a passing familiarity
with about 4 languages, and can read a couple dead languages. You
know, for fun-sies.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
That "work" thing, which I am awesome at, and generally
Marking off my favorite travel destinations (New Orleans!), finding
new ones (Scotland, anyone?), and maintaining a healthy obsession
with treasure maps. Learning about farms and agriculture, wandering
around Ace Hardware.
Hmm, in my free time, I enjoy cooking and especially baking.
And I read a lot. Like really guys, I love a good book. I think it
would be great if people could buy each other books at a bookstore
the same way they do drinks in a bar. That would be *this* much fun
(I know you can't see the hand motion: bars are like -this- much
fun, bookstores are *this* much fun).
Oh, I also have this thing about Vikings: they are awesome. Pirates
are too, but I already have enough books about them. It's time to
learn more about Vikings.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
well, all things. Buahaha, just kidding!
So lets say I'm really good at all fun things: adventuring,
questing, and team sports. Geocaching! I'm a pretty upbeat person.
Oh, BBQs, I looooooooooooove barbeques. I think I've lost the theme
here. Let's salvage this: I'm great at enjoying barbeques.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have waist-length, curly, strawberry-blonde hair. It's like
something you'd expect to see in the wild. Or as part of an
invading party of Vikings (see? Vikings are awesome!). Or
Scythians! (Stand back, I'm on a roll now.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Although the library at Alexandria may have burned down, I've done
my best to recreate it in the limited space of my apartment. I love
sharing book recommendations and if you have any suggestions, drop
me a line!
Movies: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, the Mummy,
Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, James Bond flicks, Jurassic Park,
campy 80s movies
Music: Stuff my dad raised me on: Boston, AC/DC, and Kansas.
My guilty pleasure is country music (Pistol Annies and Miranda
Lambert, Luke Bryan, Lee Bryce, and The Marshall Tucker Band). My
go-to playlist is Florence + the Machine, Mumford and Sons,
Ludovico Einaudi, and The Federal Hillbillies.
Shows: Anything with a solid storyline! I'm always looking for
something to cuddle up and enjoy.
Food: everything except anise (which was invented by felled titans
to spite humanity).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My sisters
2. The rest of my family
3. My dog, Baloo, aka, he-who-thinks-he-is-human
4. Friends to share good times with
5. Personal time (which usually turns into walking and reading
6. Books and learning materials!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Treasure, farming, foreign languages, dinosaurs, history, caves,
and food. Hmmm, recurve bows and Scythians.
On a typical Friday night I am
