Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Amanda and I'm a fairly quiet person. I have a B.S. in
Microbiology and I love what I do. It might make me a bit of a
nerd, but I enjoy microbiology and learning anything I can about
I also love the ocean. I would like to live within walking distance
of a beach some day, preferably somewhere warm. I love swimming and
snorkeling, but unfortunately pennsylvania isn't quite conducive to
these activities. I enjoy "outdoorsy" things in general like hiking
and kayaking as well. I think it'd be neat to own a kayak!
Other things I enjoy are driving around with the windows down and
the music blasting, going to the gym/working out, debating,
laughing, stimulating conversation and playing with my dogs.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I'm employed as a microbiologist. I might eventually work
on going to grad school, but right now I'm quite content with my
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Debating. I love having a good-natured debate.
Learning. I've always loved learning and if money weren't an issue,
I'd spend my life taking classes and learning new things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
To be completely honest, I don't know. Let me know what you notice
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lets see, I'm not much of a reader, but I do like Fahrenheit 451,
Harry Potter and anything by Dan Brown. I'm always open to
suggestions as well. If you have any let me know!
I love movies, my favorite being Good Will Hunting. A few other
favorites include Dogma, Harry Potter, Star Wars (yep I'm a bit of
a nerd), Patch Adams, Boondock Saints and It's a Wonderful
I don't have much time for TV these days, but my newest TV
addiction is Dexter. I also like The Daily Show and the Colbert
Report, Sons of Anarchy, Weeds and Game of Thrones as well. I liked
the mini-series Sherlock and the Planet Earth series. I aslo enjoy
food networks shows as well. Diners, Drive-ins and Dives is my
favorite. I do have a few girly guilty pleasure shows like Grey's
Anatomy, Sex and the City and Gilmore Girls... I kind of don't like
to admit that though. I also love watching football; both college
and NFL. I'm fairly certain I would've been disowned if I hadn't
known the rules of football by the time I was 6... so yes, I can
intelligently discuss a game as its happening. If you want to know,
ask me who my teams are.... as I'm a die hard fan of both (one
college and one NFL team of course).
Music is one of my favorite things in the world. I'll listen to
anything and everything at least once and I like and dislike songs
in almost all genres. I must say, though, I'm not a huge fan of
hardcore rap. My most listened to genre is probably Hard Rock. I
also play the flute/piccolo.
My favorite food is probably mashed potatoes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Friends- I swear some of my closest friends are like a second
to me. They mean everything to me.
2. Family - I'm not sure anyone can make me laugh more than
brother and my dad. Put them together and we're
laughing so hard we're crying most of the night.
3. Music - playing the flute has made music such a huge part of
life that I don't think I could live without music.
4. Laughing - I love to laugh and just have a great time. If you
make me laugh... major bonus points.
5. Stimulating conversation - I need intelligent conversation in my
Its hugely important. I love debating and hearing other
people's opinions of things, but be prepared to have a valid
argument, because I'll just play devil's advocate and
question your stance to death.
6. My dogs - Having them around to cuddle with is amazing,
they're never mad at you and are always happy to see
you. I adore my dogs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future and what it will bring. Where my life is going to take
me next and who am I going to meet. I also think a lot about the
next place I'm going to travel. I love seeing the world and there
are so many places I haven't seen yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends on the Friday night. Sometimes its a quiet night in on
the couch watching a movie, other times out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I find bacteria and archaebacteria to be fascinating organisms.
Also, it bothered me most of the day that I didn't include archaea
originally. (bonus points if you know the difference)
