My self-summary
I'm not a big IM-er; I just have an aversion to it but I'd love to read a real message from you.

City-dwellers only, please. Good luck!

I don't believe in "no regrets" - if you don't have regrets you haven't learned a d*mn thing.

I went to Guatemala to volunteer at an orphanage and school for 6 months. It turned out living in the jungle was right up my alley. Volunteering is badass.

I'm an outdoor person, plant and dog lover, and an enthusiastic learner. I prefer to be around enthusiastic people. If smiling bothers you, I'm not your girl.

I talk to strangers.

I'm (reasonably) politically aware and active, with an eye toward social justice, which is what gets me most fired up.
What I’m doing with my life
I just got the dream job (yessssss!), gonna finish up the last bit of this law school marathon, and then it's time for life to resume/begin. The dream job will bring lawyers and doctors together to work on removing barriers to health for kids growing up in poverty. I'm still in disbelief that I actually got the job :) Pinching myself is not working.

The law school adventure has been a crap-ton of work but I love learning so I've enjoyed it, even if not enjoying the people much. I'm unabashedly in it to do good.

I majored in English and African/Black Diaspora studies.

I danced professionally (classical ballet), and have been teaching ballet for 11 years, though I'm just subbing now that I'm focused on law.

I've been working hard and been single for a while, and I'm looking forward to having more time and changing up the work-to-life ratio.
I’m really good at
sandwich making (it's all about ratio and texture), encouraging people, and dropping cliches (a tendency I hate and my friends seem to like). Also, when I was in third grade I got one of the highest scores for analogies on state-wide testing. I still like to trot that one out.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I smile easily, blush often and have great big eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This list is always changing but Tom Robbins is always on my authors list. David Mitchell (Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet over Cloud Atlas), Alice Walker, Barbara Kingsolver is my guilty pleasure when semesters end and I can lazily enjoy some fiction.

I watch a lot of documentaries; I like justifying laziness and lounging with learning and discovery! I'm a sucker for awful-bad awesome movies: The Three Amigos is in my disc drive right now.

My musical taste tends to be fairly old school and international with some current "indie" artists mixed in. I've been listening to a ridiculous amount of Leo Kottke, John Fahey and the like during school, which morphed into a lot of Kora music (African gourd thumb-plucking harp-like instrument). I usually end up at friends' gigs which pushes going to actual shows further down on the list of stuff to do.

I'm pretty into food - I like the idea of nourishing ourselves together and the joy it brings. I eat everything and I like to cook. I participated in a pig slaughter and am freaked out when people eat meat but don't want to be reminded that it used to be an animal. That's way more inappropriate dinner table behavior than talking about slaughters.

When I go out to eat I like it to be food I wouldn't be able to put together at home.
The six things I could never do without
I'm really thinking about this one...
1. I've gone without clean water for a couple days in the jungle. I got a raging eye infection and couldn't see out of my right eye for a month so clean water is definitely up there.
2. Candles. I can put up with not having electricity, but there are so many hours of the day that are dark!
3. Books!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next meal and the next restaurant and how much fun Chicago is in the summer. I spend a lot of time reasoning and supporting my statements and championing equity; alternatively, I spend a lot of time being goofy.
On a typical Friday night I am
These days I try to work (law school is a whole lot of reading) until I can't stand it any more, then have a good late-night dinner and a nice drink for my ideal Friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have really awful taste in movies, but I don't usually exert it upon others. It's more of a private hangover habit.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 28–33
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
you're an intelligent guy who I can also be a goofball with. You don't have to like the things I like, just be willing to hear about them. You should message me if you consider yourself a kind person.
