I'm studying to be an English teacher, although I secretly want to be a dinosaur when I grow up. In the meantime, I work at a mental health facility where I help out at what is essentially an alternative school that does therapy.
I have a peculiar sense of humor, but I love sharing jokes, being silly, and finding nice pranks to pull on friends and coworkers.
I love being active, although I'm out of shape. I ran my first 5k in June 2013, and that one was a Warrior Dash (lots of pretty insane obstacles). I do medieval reenactment sometimes, where I focus on sword fighting. I love to go on walks or hikes with my dog, play softball on my work team, disc golf, tennis...anything that gets me up and moving, I tend to enjoy. I also have sedentary hobbies, like sewing, embroidery, video games, and Dungeons & Dragons.
I don't drink. I'm not pretentious about it, I just choose not to do it. I don't mind if I'm around people who are drinking and will frequently act as a DD.
Movie - Braveheart, Star Wars (original trilogy), Indiana Jones, Boondock Saints, and kung fu flicks or anything that goes boom.
Music - Depends on my mood. I've been into a lot of Flogging Molly lately, though. I also dig the Dropkick Murphys, The Pogues, Dance Hall Crashers, Nerf Herder, Flight of the Conchords, They Might Be Giants, and Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Please note that I, of course, kept these in strict alphabetical order.
Food - I have a sensitive stomach, which often cramps my style foodwise. I love Indian, nachos, pizza, burgers, steak...I'm willing to give just about anything a try, but spicy stuff will murder me to death.
2) My dog, Hawkeye, even though he's kind of a jerk.
3) Something to do with my hands
4) My iPod, loaded with fresh podcasts
5) Mountain Dew Code Red
I also plan and execute a lot of pranks. I like to come up with nice surprises for people, so I'm always looking for something new.
It's an odd sort of shyness, though. I have no qualms about making a fool of myself in public, but I can almost entirely freeze up when it comes to talking to someone I don't know one on one. I have no idea why. Truthfully, it's kind of embarrassing.
Therefore, I am not that good at sending messages to people out of the blue, or otherwise initiating a first conversation. Words cannot describe how much I suck at it. If I send you a message and you're reading this right now...please be gentle.
You should message me if:
- you are nerdy or nerd tolerant
- passionate about something
- have a terrible sense of humor
- you are a pretty smart lady
