Are you adventuresome, someone that likes to giggle and have fun, and who isn't afraid to live vibrantly? If so, I'm looking for you! I'm searching for friends who can accompany me as I explore all that life has to offer. I'm a little awkward. Not always socially correct. I can be wallflowerish at times, and a little nutty at other times. I can laugh at myself and hope you can too! I enjoy just about anything: music, sports, arts, movies, you name it.
What I’m doing with my life
Every day is a new adventure for me! I'm definitely not the type to sit around waiting for something fun to happen; I make my own fun. Recent things I've been up to: deep sea fishing (caught a 42 in Blue Wahoo recently), going to local concerts, dreaming up a non-profit adventure with friends, collecting autographs (no, I don't want yours), etc. I recently had ACL surgery, so I'm in the middle of physical therapy. I can't wait until August when I should be allowed to ride my motorcycle again (I have a Buell). I also like hiking, rollerblading, playing pickleball, etc.
I also love to travel. Last year I spent 3 weeks puttering around England, Scotland, and Iceland. Highlights included several amazing waterfall hikes, whiskey tasting in Scotland, and climbing a glacier in Iceland. This year I went zip lining, caving, rappelling, and fishing in Mexico. Next year I'm kicking around ideas: India or Turkey? tsk tsk, decisions. I don't need to just travel abroad though. I actively explore this area, and I LOVE to find hidden treasures right here in the greater Capital District area (or, at least, within a day trip area).
I’m really good at
Pairing wine with food. Rolling loose change. OCD-organizing my
closet. Organizing projects at work. Talking like a monkey.
The first things people usually notice about me
People probably notice that I'm short right off the bat. I've been
told my people notice eyes or my smile. That's assuming I'm awake
and smiling when we meet, you know. It's not a given.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Game of Thrones, Pillars of the Earth, anything Shakespeare, Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, The Fountainhead.
Movies: James Bonds, Star Warses, Princess Bride, Iron Man.
Music: I love just about everything from Alt, Pop, Classic Rock, Ska, Reggae, Jazz, Blues, Classical, Opera, Lounge/Showtunes, House/Dance, Heavy Metal, Country, blahblahblah.
Food: I like just about anything. Sashimi trumps sushi; whiskey trumps gin; salad trumps pasta.
Noteworthy: I REALLY like architecture. Quite a lot. And bridges!
The six things I could never do without
Toilet paper. Music. Hugs. A job. A car/mode of transportation. Clothes. Sleep! The Oxford comma.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...how broken social restrictions/rules are, and how difficult real friendship is to find in the world....
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes I go out and about....catching a concert, hanging out
with girlfriends, gambling at the Racino, driving to Maine for no
reason at all. And sometimes I stay in and read a book and watch
stupid things on tv.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not single. But I'm not cheating, either.
You should message me if
you're up for making new friends and hanging out casual-like,
without any awkward pressure.
