My self-summary
I was a bartender for 12 years and made the switch to having a day job in 2011. I am currently an project administrator for a local construction
company.

I enjoy flea markets and thrift store shopping. You'll never know what you'll find there. It's like an adventure each time you go.
What I’m doing with my life
I am trying to live in and appreciate the present moment and enjoy life. I avoid drama like the plague. No need for that stuff.

I love to travel and have been to Italy and Ireland as well as many places across the US. I try to go somewhere new every year. I truly believe that life is all about maintaining peace and happiness and enjoying experiences. I want to experience and see as much of this world as I can.
I’m really good at
Being able to tell when someone is upset or not feeling well. I'm a good listener and am good at helping people with their problems. People tend to open up to me and tell me a lot about themselves/seek advice.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suppose people might notice that I am very animated and use a LOT of facial expressions. I can't help it...I'm a quirky chick. I tend to lack segue skills and say what is on my mind most of the time...my 'filter' is usually turned off and I joke around a lot. What's the point of life if you can't laugh everyday?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Tv: Dexter, The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia; Master of None, You're the Worst, How I met your mother, True Blood, The Office, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Shameless

Music: music is my life and has my heart. I listen to music as soon as I wake up and all through the day. I love music that moves me and makes me feel something/takes me on a journey.

A sample of some music that I listen to:
Eilen Jewell, Brown Bird, Lindi Ortega, The Wood Brothers, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Big Black Delta, Gary Numan, Muse, A Perfect Circle, Tool, Mumford & Sons (although the radio has played them so much now I change the station when they come on), Of Monsters and Men, Regina Spektor, Nirvana, Morrissey, The Smiths, Pink Floyd, The Bird and the bee, Classic Rock, 80's/90's Alternative, The Bravery, Luna, Wilco, Queens of the Stone Age, STP, Flogging Molly, Radiohead, Polvo, Janes Addiction, Lily Allen, Cat Stevens, Chevelle, Gogol Bordello, Nine Inch Nails, Johnny Cash, Rising Appalachia, Alabama Shakes, The Brothers Commatose, and so many more. The most recent favorite music genre is bluegrassy/southern blues/alternative. It's so soulful and cathartic.

I don't like pop country music and rarely listen to rap.

I also enjoy some Dubstep/EDM music. It's fun and helps add some energy to my day when I'm suffering the dreaded 2:00pm slump at work. I'm not on the fast track to glo-stick land or anything though.

Food: I love trying new foods! My favorites are: Mexican, Indian, Thai, sushi/seafood and Italian. I will try almost any kind of food. I love ethnic food and am bored of typical American foods. I am really trying to stay away from fast food, but Taco Bell is my weakness.

I love coffee and different types of herbal and green teas. I try to eat healthy/organic but it can be difficult and expensive. I get made fun of at work for my container of wheatgrass powder I keep in the fridge that I mix and drink...but I have the least amount of sick days so...um...yeah.
The six things I could never do without
1. My family
2. My silly deaf 16 year old cat-whose full name is: Isobel Bunny Flying Squirrel Monkey Face Bigglesworth. Bunny for short. Ok, I only have 1 cat...not a 'crazy cat lady' here. Just 'crazy'.
3. Music
4. Humor
5. New experiences
6. The Internet...I love having any and all information at my fingertips. I love looking things up. Information sponge here. I am full of random useless facts. Did you know that the atlas moth (one of the world's largest moths) has no working mouth parts and lives off of fat reserves for its short 1-2 week life? Well now you do...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about the universe and philosophy.

I also spend a lot of time thinking of different jobs I would like to have. I always wanted to be my own boss and own my own business. Still searching and trying to discover what that business is. I sometimes want to be a yoga instructor, make/sell jewelry, own my own store or bar...etc etc...anything that is fun and doesn't feel like 'work'.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually relaxing at home watching a movie or playing Dvr catch up.

I'm looking for someone who can appreciate comphy cozy nights relaxing watching tv as well as going out to new places and restaurants and bars.

I have been wanting to go to the art galleries here more often and hope to find someone who would enjoy that. I like Phipps Conservatory too.
There are so many cool things to do in Pittsburgh that I feel I don't take advantage of often enough.
You should message me if
Send me a message if you: are kind, smart, witty/funny, enjoy traveling to new places, enjoy trying new restaurants, like art, love music and sometimes going to shows, art crawls, comedy shows, spontaneous road trips where you stop at random diners/local stores/museums, also must enjoy doing absolutely nothing sometimes other than relaxing and staying in/watching tv.

I sing and am also looking to join or start a band. Lindi Ortega/Jessica Lea Mayfield/Eilen Jewel style/alternative/Indie/southern blues style music. If you like to play that type of music and are interested in starting a band, send me a message. Music is what feelings sound like ;)

Please don't message me if you are more than 5 years younger than me...I know age is just a number and all that jazz...but it is my preference to date someone my age or older.Don't send me a message if: u type lik dis, your profile picture is a shirtless selfie in a bathroom that may or may not include you with duck face, you have no profile pic, I can't tell who you are amongst all your group photos, you're not looking for a possible long term relationship or your picture is of you holding a bloody deer you just shot.
I also won't date a Republican. You're entitled to your beliefs, but we wouldn't get along.
