My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a single mom who is over casual dating and looking for something more serious. I don't want random men coming in and out of my son's life.

"wannabe artmaker. given love to heartbreakers. just one ant in the colony that's lost all sense(s). refusing to lose but not bothered with winning."(from my myspace page. Talk about throwback..)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being a mom.
Trying to figure out how to be a grown up. Or how to avoid it. I was most recently working at a fabrication shop that builds custom props/sculptures for companies/museums/parties/plays around the country. I chose to leave for several reasons including their inability to meet OSHA standards. This was further complicated when I found out that I was pregnant.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sewing and sculpting. (I'm most interested in formalism, classicism.. I'm pretty old fashioned I guess.) Yay art! I sculpt the Duck Dynasty dudes for ChiaPet.. that seems to get a bit of attention sometimes. Ask me about it if you're interested.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My "coloring" (ginger), and/or the baby that's probably strapped to me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This section is the worst... Many slip my mind, and who wants to read these huge, intimidating lists anyway?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My kittays- Go ahead and judge.
2. Paper Books- Their gradual extinction makes me want to cry. It's just wrong. (Do not be mistaken. I don't get into books as often as I'd like to, I just think Kindles are horrible and hate reading from screens.)
3. Fruit.
4. Vinyl Jams- All oldies in general. Nostalgia for that which was never personally experienced.
5. Sewing Machine- just conveniently handy.
6. Duct Tape- obviously.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
all the things I have to get done / why there aren't more hours in a day

trying to force myself to appreciate my culture, and trying to get a more global view of society as a whole, and the positives and negatives of different cultures according to my personal moral values as conditioned by the culture I was raised in, and being aware of that conditioning, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sleeping...

Or Netflixing. I am a homebody who generally does not like loud/crowded places; but since having a little one, going out is much more fun/appreciated.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a single mom and am back at home so I can be with my babe. I don't know how private that is, but it is pretty personal...

Also, I like to burp. A lot. I rarely try to contain it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I tend to be most attracted to tall/dark/handsome, big, hairy, teddy bear types. My ideal man would be: attractive, self-confident, humble, kind, caring, strong, smart, etc. But most importantly would be how he approached establishing a relationship with my son. It's a delicate process.

I'm fascinated by zodiacs and am inclined to believe there's something to it: according to Greek and Chinese zodiacs, I am most compatible (romantically) with someone born between March 21st and April 19th or August 23rd and September 22nd of 1982, or 1986. So if you fall into that very small category of men, I'm curious. Haha
