I spent about two years working with autistic children before getting into my current profession in the criminology field. It was rewarding work, but I didn't have enough passion for it and there wasn't enough money in it. I mainly got into working with autistic children because my brother has autism, so the cause was and still is meaningful to me. I have also worked in the hell that is retail!
I consider myself introverted, even though this site categorizes me as extroverted. Although I'm introverted, I'm not shy or antisocial (I hate when people have that misconception). I'm generally a pretty quiet person but I'm known to be kind of hyper as well.
I'm a pescetarian (eat seafood but not meat), but am considering going full vegetarian. I don't have a problem with dating meat eaters at all, by the way. Although I love animals, I'm not preachy about it.
I'm pretty laid-back, although I can be uptight at times (mainly when I'm in a situation I'm not accustomed to or with people I'm not fully comfortable with). Also, I'm pretty open to trying new things (just not daredevil stuff like skydiving, bungee jumping, and what have you).
To explain my 'Details' section a bit more, I feel I should mention a few things:
- When I say I'm "curvy," I mean that I'm average size with an hourglass shape (kind of on the athletic side also.)
- I put 'Other' for religion because I don't practice any religion but I can't quite call myself atheist/agnostic either. I believe there is a higher power, but my beliefs fall mostly under existentialism with a little Buddhism and Taoism thrown in.
