My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If I were a cookie, I'd probably be a snickerdoodle. They look kinda cinnamon-spicy on the outside, but the best ones are also soft and sweet once you get to the heart of them. So besides the name being fun to say (I love alliteration and playing with language, too), it's a pretty fair approximation of me! I appear quite sassy, spunky and sarcastic on the outside - and I am! - but at the heart of me, like that cookie, I'm a pretty sweet soul and quite sensitive besides. I can make light of most situations, even morbid, dark ones, but I can also be serious when the need arises. I'm also tactful, playful, intelligent, spontaneous, affectionate and an introvert who has learned to be an extrovert.

I realize the world is not a fair place - far from it - but I do the best I can to treat all I meet fairly and with respect and tolerance for their ways of life. It's kind of a must, in fact, for the field I work in, which is international education. When you work all day with people of various languages, religions and nationalities, helping them to learn English and adjust to American life, it's imperative you have respect for their cultures and the culture shock and adjustment/learning process they're in. I suppose it's easier for me to do this after having studied abroad so many times myself. I've spent several years studying abroad in New Zealand and Germany. I'll admit it - I'm a travel junkie. Travel and languages figure heavily into my career. I really love what I do, and it definitely makes me feel like I'm making a difference in the world, which is a MUST for me. Working just for the sake of money was never an option in my case. :)

I have a philosophical outlook on life and I'm very spiritual, but not adhering to any particular practice. I do like pondering the existential questions, though, which may be partly why I love sci-fi and fantasy. I prefer TV, movies and books (OMG, BOOKS <3) which cant in this direction, though I also like historical fiction and nonfiction, too. My mind is always spinning in ways quite random, wonderful and weird. I have several stories in my head that I need to finish writing down some day. I also get my creativity out through online story-writing and RPGs with a small group of friends, which I've been doing in some fashion since I was 15. My mind loves to be active and creative. Researching is fun, too - maybe that's why I'm so good at genealogy, another passion of mine. It's like a centuries' old mystery tailor-made for each person! Ok, my geek is showing. So...I better just admit this:

I'm just a plain, straight-up nerd. Besides history and genealogy, there's so much more! Star Wars or Star Trek? Why must I pick?! Give me Firefly and Babylon Five while you're at it! Throw in comics and gaming and anything Joss Whedon has touched! And if you let me geek out about language, linguistics and/or phonetics and phonology? Well, I may just melt on you. ;) And don't even get me started on gaming. I like board games, but I love video and computer games even more. I am an honest-to-god gamer girl and have been since I was a kid on the first Ataris and Nintendos. See 'favorites' for what games I love best.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reading, gaming, playing with my dog. Teaching, as per my job. Fixing up my first home. Enjoying life, family and friends. Dreaming of a family of my own.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, seeing the silver lining and/or the other side of the argument, worrying, empathetic conversations, languages, explaining things in a way people can understand (I'm a teacher!), reading and writing.

Books: The love of my life. I am a voracious reader. I prefer fantasy and sci-fi, but I also enjoy romance, historical fiction, nonfiction and self-help. At the moment, I'm working through the Tao Te Ching. Loved the Hunger Games and anything by Tolkien.

Games: The second love of my life. I am a gamer at heart. If you name an MMO, I've likely played it. At the very least, I've heard of it. I've been on EQ, EQ2, GW, GW2, PW, WoW, LOTRO, SWTOR, Rift...I also really love a good RPG. Stories are my favorite part, really. If Bioware or Bethesda made it, I probably own it and worship at its altar. ;) In fact, I've been playing Dragon Age: Inquisition since November pretty much non-stop. When I do take a break, it's to hit LotRO with my friends.

TV: My favorite shows always end up cancelled! Oh, Firefly, how I mourn you. But I still have Flash, Forever, Arrow and Face-Off! And HGTV is mindless fun for inspiration in fixing up my house. :)

Music: Just about anything, but rock/pop/hip-hop is a favorite.

Food: German, Mexican, Italian, Indian, and Thai are favorites. I hate tomatoes. Don't like uber spicy. Major sweet tooth, but I've given up sugar pretty much completely so I don't indulge that anymore. Not really into coffee either, but I really like tea.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family
My dog, Pedro
My computer
An internet connection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future. I have a job I love in an area that I enjoy and my family is close, but my mind is very active and I'm always wondering what might be next around the bend. This doesn't mean major changes - it just might be what I'm going to plant in the flowerbed this year - but I'm always pondering. This isn't to say I'm not grateful for what I have - I spent the other part of my time trying to communicate the love and gratitude I have for this life of mine to my family, friends and whatever power has made this synchronicity of awesome possible. My life isn't perfect - nothing is - but I still believe the glass is half-full and we should be grateful for what we have while we do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home reading a book or gaming online. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've experienced a lot of loss in the last couple of years. This doesn't mean I'm depressed or not ready for a relationship - I'm neither of those. But the deaths in my family have colored my outlook. It's left me keenly aware of the value of life & time and also wanting to spend it with someone real who loves me for me. I don't have times for games or drama, and I'm looking for something serious with someone who wants kids - not right away, dear gosh! But one day, down the road. If you're not looking for that, you might want to keep on walking.
