My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an intelligent educator and passionate geek looking for an intelligent geek to spend evenings curled up watching movies and playing board games with friends. I love music, anime, good food and better conversation.

Proudly, I am a nerd - a lover of sci-fi and fantasy and somewhat of a romantic. I collect movies and spend a lot of time watching them! I love board games, especially strategy or puzzle, and I enjoy anime and manga.

I love knowledge, and am generally open to learning as much as I can. I adore ancient cultures, especially Egyptian, Hellenic (Greek), and Roman, and also am very interested in Japan, past and present. I still play Neopets and have a deviantArt account, but lately have been glued to applications on Facebook.

I have a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Houston, with a minor in History, though my main subject matter is archaeology (not offered on the undergrad level there). I thrive on languages.

Friends (IRL):

I am eccentric, educated, and a fantasy dork
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been dating the same great guy, who I met on here, incidentally, since 2 January 2010.

I have a small board games night every once and a while at my house. We usually play Risk or Titan or card games like Apples to Apples, Fluxx, and Uno, but are open to other game possibilities. If you are interested in playing, please send me a message.

I have a lot of hobbies, including various forms of art, making websites, and creating beaded jewelry. Feel free to ask me about them.

I have an undergrad degree in Anthropology (History minor), with hopes to earn a Ph.D. eventually (and then become a professor).

I took 2 years of German language in college, studied 3 years of Latin in high school, and returned for a semester for post-bac studies of French and ancient Greek languages. Languages do interest me, and I try picking up Japanese when I can, and picked up a little Korean when I worked with a Korean family. Graduate school is something I would like to do, and feasibly cannot do at the present time. My absolute desire would be able to attend the University of Chicago's graduate program in the Ancient Mediterranean World, but I doubt I will ever be able to afford it (and they require 2 ancient and 2 modern languages besides English, hence my return to school for a semester... but it was VERY expensive!).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being odd. Attracting odd.

Small and tedious things, playing board games, having ideas bounced off of, being a good friend, baking cookies and general cooking, crosswords, sudoku and jigsaw puzzles, finding ways to let go of creative energy.

I'm good at organization - I like things to be organized certain ways. Maybe you call it OCD, I call it sanity :P
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Naturally curly hair, soft lips, sounding a lot older (intelligence-wise) than I look, strange facial expressions.

I have been told that I look like Drew Barrymore when compared to celebrities. Her, or more often, Shirley Temple.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is one of those questions that helps people gauge the importance of certain things in others' lives, and tends to be filled with inane answers. My answers are placed in the expectation that absolute survival necessities (air, water, food, shelter, etc.) are not a part of the list. These are to give you a sense of things that I endear.

1. Sushi - it is just too delectable a taste to completely give up, even if there are health risks involved in ingesting this magnificent food!

2. Computer with internet - I am a nerd. I freely admit it, and I would be HIGHLY upset if I went prolonged periods without access to the internet. I've got to play Neopets and check Facebook somehow! XD

3. A creative outlet - I need some artistic thing to do when I need to let out that energy, though it changes in medium (jewelry, traditional/digital art, poetry, etc.).

4. Those dearest to me - Family and friends are wonderful, and though I may not talk to them all consistently, they are still dear to me. As long as we are alive, I will be communicating with them as I can.

5. Pets - I love my cats (only 2!) like family members, and I wouldn't be able to give them up for anyone. See above.

6. A good book - I need a good book to read before I fall asleep, or to keep me busy while I'm waiting for something. I used to read constantly when I was younger, walking between classes, during meals, etc. though I don't read near as much anymore.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Crochet projects lately, because I learned how to crochet this summer and have been working mad crazy on it! No, it's not just for little old ladies... I made a Mario Power-Up Mushroom hat for a friend just recently :D

Hm, this may sound insane (please don't think me crazy... yet), but I have imaginary conversations with people I know. I am usually thinking of a certain person and going over my thoughts and what happened for the day. It gets really annoying when I start explaining in this fashion what I am doing, so then I'm on loop.

I randomly think of different things at different times. Sometimes, I'll wonder about word origins (etymology), or work to make 24 with different mathematical operations from 3-4 numbers (it's fun to play!), recalculate how many seconds are in a year, ponder expanding my artistic media into new areas, etc. These are generally when I'm bored, without a book or puzzle or something to occupy me, and need to work my mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably out to a restaurant and/or movie with my boyfriend. Or, we could be at home cooking dinner, watching a movie/TV, and LANing strategy games. Sometimes, having a small party with board games!

A night spent at home with a special someone, curled up on the couch watching a movie also sounds like a great way to spend a Friday night. Or, you know, beating them at video games :P
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to be a little reserved when I'm just meeting someone. Don't take shyness as disinterest - I open up a lot more as I get to know people.

I hate spiders. HATE. Even the small ones. And I sound like a silly squealy girl when I see one.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 21–35
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1. You like playing board games and are interested in playing some Risk or Titan with me and others some time.

2. You share many of my same interests and would like to become my friend! Especially if you're interested in crafting and watching movies! Or a quilting circle, involving sushi O.o err... a quilting circle that also eats sushi, because quilting with sushi would get messy...

Please do not message me if you are only looking for casual relations or for a polyamorous situation. I am a one-man woman!
