I will start by saying THANK YOU OKCupid for finding me the most wonderful man in the entire world. Literally, world, cause I looked overseas on a chance and there he was, in my beautiful Wales, my wonderful Scientist84. For those of you still looking, this site is marvelous, and do keep looking! Answer the questions! Those matches are eerily accurate!
My name is Sara (Sah-rah, not Seh-rah) and I am a geek of many varieties: I obsess over music, history and folklore, and even enjoy doing math/logic problems for fun on a Friday Night.
I got my Masters from IU in December '06. I know, "I spent MONEY to get a degree in MUSIC?!?! I'll be broke FOREVER!" but I'm slowly but surely paying things off and getting a savings account! I love to dance- swing is my thing, leading or following, but I've learned some Belly Dance, cause it's a great workout! It makes me hurt everywhere in muscles I didn't know I had. I have always wanted to do more formal ballroom, but I've only had lessons here and there, but I'm told I can synch up and follow pretty well. I'm also known to have no fear or shame and to randomly dance to canned oldies at the grocery store, or attempt the limbo, though on roller skates, I'm just begging for bodily injury. So long as it's not smokey, I'll go to just about any place and dance! Same with singing. I'm a pretty darn good singer, if I do say so myself, and I run a cappella groups, a madrigal group, most recently I am a featured singer with the Stardusters Jazz Band! I'm also a gamer geek who likes to dress up in pretty dresses and corsets and pretend to be an elf. Ok, it's a little more complicated than that, but hey. I love Music, Theatre, Dance, and really all of the performing and visual arts.
Most people who know me consider me very sardonic, a little overcommitted with all the activities I do, but if I don't do something useful or expressive every day, I get mopey, and no one likes that. I lived in a town during my first job stint as a middle school choral director where I would probably have considered myself one of the most intelligent people there, but I don't really know if that that means much. It really was *that* bad. I know very little about sports save that balls seem to have a homing device fixed on my nose, and that a football mostly looks like a big lemon that has sat in your fridge too long. I used to love baseball though, and well, what Welsh Girl like me doesn't like Soccer!
I am passionate, geeky, and musical.
