I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in criminology and theater. I know, it's a strange combo. I am also currently taking classes to earn my Master's degree. Eventually, I hope to earn my Doctorate. I work with children who have autism and/or behavioral problems. Some of my biggest passions include taking care of animals, performing, and studying different aspects of behavioral and mental health. I have been in many theatrical productions and enjoy being able to tell a story to people through characterization. I sing quite a bit as well and took professional lessons for over 6 years. I workout 5 days a week, but am far from what you would call a "meat-head." I only became interested in exercise and the gym at the age of 20, so I still have lots of nerdy hobbies that I developed as a teenager (that I am proud of). I just happen to have the body of an athletic elven creature now =D. I also have a butt that sticks out like an air conditioner, a fairly big (yet dignified) nose, and hair that looks like it's the result of an anime character being involved in an Nsync gang-bang =P. The bar scene has never really appealed to me. I would prefer to go for a hike outside on a nature trail and see what this planet has to offer rather than be stuck in a smokey room full of loud, smelly, drunk people who are likely ripe with STD's. I'm also not a huge fan of watching sports. I consider myself much more of a do-er than a watch-overpaid-rapists-and-criminals-play-catch-and-run-into-each-other...-er.
I usually have a pretty blue sense of humor. You MAY have noticed this. That being said, I like to think that I have a good amount of common sense and sensitivity. I still hold doors open for people, help strangers pick things up when they drop them, and walk on the outside of the curb so that speeding semi-trucks hit me instead of you. Yes, I know that you are a woman and that you are just as capable of opening a door, picking things up, and getting hit by motor vehicles as I am. I was just always taught that these were the right things to do, though, and that simply offering thoughtful acts reflect who I am as a human being. I like to think that I am a very good listener, too. There is something about another person being willing and trusting enough to share their problems with me that makes me feel special and important, so it is not something that I ignore or take for granted. I was raised Catholic, and still take many aspects of my upbringing seriously. Over the years, though, I have realized that following the crowd blindly in religious beliefs is not for me. I believe in my own version of God and refuse to give in to the popular "My God's d*** is bigger than your God's d***," point of view that seems to divide so many people, cultures, and religions. Equality is key.
I guess you could say that I'm looking for a relationship, but I'm really in no hurry. It's more important for me to meet "the right person," rather than just "a convenient person," and I am aware of that usually not being a fast process. However, I am always (IE:usually) happy to meet new people, so if you (and I) think that we would get along, why the heck not see where things go?
NOTE: If your profile includes a full 2 sentences that include absolutely nothing for me to learn about you, or if you have "SHAWTY" "LIL" or "BAD" in your profile name, I can all but guarantee you that we will not compute.
I will close this by stating that at this point in reading my profile, you either get my humor or you don't. If you don't, then I apologize for wasting your time and implore you to go back to watching Grey's Anatomy, listening to Taylor Swift, and eating your vanilla flavored ice cream. If you DO get the joke, I hope (even if you don't think we would match) that you were moderately entertained and informed with this one of a kind profile! Other than that, thanks for visiting and I look forward to hearing from you! =D
