Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm looking for an equal partner in life. I expect to be challenged
and to challenge mentally. I have goals and aspirations -- you
I love making people laugh. This often comes out through a nice
balance of puns, and song quotes. Exploring --whether it be a city,
the woods, a small town, a festival, a museum, or even a new
highway makes me giddy. Seeing bands I consider to be great and
those that are just completely random can be tons of fun. I'm a
reader and will read every word put in front of me-- consider that
a warning against leaving your darkest secrets written on the
napkin when we meet.
My sisters and I are close. I grew up spending a lot of time with
my large extended family and they are more or less still within an
hour's car ride of me.
What I’m doing with my life

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1- A journal
2- A good pen (not expensive, just one that writes nicely)
3- water (I drink a lot of water)
4- adequate vision correction (glasses or contacts)
5 & 6 -- some other stuff?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"Wait, was that a real song lyric or do I just think it's
"How am I going to word that?"
"Why do I still capitalize Internet?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
One Friday a good friend and I sat down with a bottle of wine, a
slice of pie, a coloring book, and 72 colored pencils. Three and a
