My self-summary
I am a fun (I'd like to think), intense person, and I love people who can make me laugh. I like just hanging out and talking with my friends. Organized activities are not really my thing. I am hard working and dedicated to the people I care about.
Honesty and openness are things I value very highly in a partner, and it is something people should expect of me. I work hard to make sure I am honest about myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, mostly. I work at Target, setting new product. I'm in charge of putting out new releases of books, movies, music, and video games every week.
I’m really good at
I am good at my job, which might not be saying much, but it means a bit to me. I may not actually think I'm contributing to the betterment of society, but I can have the knowledge that I do a good job. That is really important to me.
I seem to be good at saying the right thing at the right time when someone is upset (although it depends on the person).
I try. Even if I fail a lot of the time, I do try, in most of my endeavors, to do the best I can.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair.
My laugh.

Food: I like most kinds of food--I love Japanese, Thai, Indian, and Mexican food. I am really not that picky.
The six things I could never do without
Cats, books, friends, music, chocolate mousse, family (not necessarily in that order, but not necessarily NOT in that order.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My relationships to the people around me.
My past.
My future.
My mistakes.
Books (how many I want to read, which ones I am reading currently, etc.)
I am constantly thinking--sometimes I wish I could stop for a little while, it's exhausting.
On a typical Friday night I am
Honestly, because of my weird work hours, if it's past 8pm, I'm probably sleeping. In my free time, I mostly read and watch TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am pretty open about anything with people, but I am not the best at thinking of things when put on the spot about them. But I often laugh so hard I start crying. Laughter is also often my response to stress or depression, both of which I struggle with.
