Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well...I'm terrible at these things so please bear with me.
My name is Katie, I'm a college graduate with a Bachelor's in
Mathematics. (And I was 3 classes from completing my English major,
if my wall of text profile wasn't enough of a hint, lol.) My
interests are all over the place...right now I'm especially
interested in (read: obsessing over) physics, the cosmos, etc. I'm
a massive math nerd, so if I can find math in something (ok, I can
find it in *anything*) then I'm bound to like it.
Right now I'm a bit of a homebody, but it's driving me crazy. I
want to go on adventures. I want to explore. I want to leave my
comfort zone, and leave it far behind. I'm working on that...
I am looking for a companion, someone with which to go through this
adventure that is life...I'm beginning to realize that it's just
not as fun doing everything alone.
So, I'm shy...at first, anyway. I love humor and that's generally
how I "break the ice," so to speak. I'm generally pretty awkward
and can be blunt, but I can be good for a few laughs anyway. I tend
to care a lot about people, even if perhaps I shouldn't, and once I
care I'm loyal to a fault.
I love going to the gym, though nobody would ever guess such a
thing. :-P Finally got my gym membership back and I'm really,
really excited about that!
Also, please note: I can be really, really bad at replying promptly
on here. Life is a bit crazy right now. However, I do eventually
get around to replying, I promise!
And regarding my "doesn't have kids, and doesn't want any"
selections -- if you've got kids of your own, that's perfectly
fine! Don't let this scare you away. I love kids and have 13
younger cousins ages 15 and under. I love them all dearly. I just
don't want to have biological kids of my own. However I would
possibly be open to adopting kids later on in life, or being a
stepmother or something along those lines.
Also, I do use Kik Messenger. My username is seregkat. If you send
me a message on there, please tell me who you are and that you're
from here. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a part-time mathematics tutor. I love my job, but it's
reaalllyy part time, so I am looking for a second job.
In the hopefully near future I'd like to go to grad school. My goal
is to get a Ph.D. in Mathematics.
Overall: I'm just trying to find my way...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at not giving up, haha.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm...my eyes and/or my smile, I guess. And my shyness. Or at least
this is what I've been told.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Let's see...I'm really interested in the Faroe Islands and the
Faroese language and culture. I love Norse and Germanic mythology.
I like to read as much medieval/Anglo-Saxon literature and Norse
sagas as I can. I also love fantasy and sci-fi...I'm a Tolkien
addict and a budding Trekkie. (However, I also love Star Wars, and
Stargate for that matter.) I have a large number of books, movies,
and TV shows on my "To-Do/Read/Watch" list...
Let's see, random stuff...I play Lord of the Rings Online
occasionally; I'm a Redditor; I'm a metalhead (I especially love
folk and Viking metal, heavy metal, thrash, black, death, etc.) and
I love classic rock, Jpop/Jrock, Celtic and medieval music, even a
bit of bluegrass and classical; I want to learn how to play
D&D; I want to learn how to work on cars; etc.
And, despite my appearance, I've found that fewer things are as
therapeutic as an excellent workout.

Favorite foods? Well, I love Italian food, that's for sure. And
chocolate (duh). But I have a motto about food: I'll try anything
TWICE. :) [Ok, I've had to revise my motto: I'll try damn near
anything twice. Fried mushrooms dipped in a horseradish sauce
ruined it. Never again.]
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. My cats and dog
4. Friends and family
5. Water (and tea)
6. The interwebz
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, death, love, mathematics, music, the cosmos and space (and
everything around us), politics (and what is wrong with America and
our world today), people, science, philosophy...everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at home, online or reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A big part of my shyness comes from the fact that I have an anxiety
disorder and depression. Woo hoo! I'm getting much, much better
Also, I am prone to swearing...sometimes too much. Oops.
