I love the outdoors, learning, science, critical thinking, anthropology, art, music, history and culture. Basically, if its interesting, I'm into it. I love having fun, goofing off and making jokes. I pride myself in having a quick wit (read smart-ass). I love hiking, mountain biking, going to the coast, going to a movie and then discussing it, reading, building things, painting, enjoying art, listening to music, learning, playing games. I'm a nerd, so if its interesting, I like it. If its good and it was made with love, I love it. My family is the best and my friends are awesome, I love hanging out with them. How can you not love a family where the women are knitters and everyone is sarcastic? I enjoy meeting new people, too.
I'm mechanically inclined, I like to make things, build and work on bicycles (though I'm pretty good with cars too), build Ikea furniture and fix stuff around the house (no its true, I swear).
My goals for the future include learning a new language (I'm leaning toward German), buying a house, and finding someone to grow old with. Inspired by my grandmother and sister, I have learned the joy of cooking. Desserts have been my focus lately, Apple Dutch Babies, Irish Soda Breads, and cookies. I have a lemon cookie recipe that, alone, earned me a second date. My new favorite thing to make is Challah, because its delicious, fun to make, and you get to yell "Challah!"
