Former grad student, frantic reader, and lover of British television. I've been described as enthusiastic, bubbly, and maybe even a little crazy. I enjoy being the life of the party, and I like to make sure everyone's involved.
In my spare time, I love to read, listen to music, write, draw, cook and run with my dogs, go to the gym, be crafty, and play badminton and ultimate.
Turns out I'm went back to school for nursing this fall. A two year program that ends in an RN in 2016. I'm very pleased about this.
Outside of work, and focusing on my health/fitness. I once worked as a personal trainer, and I really enjoy nutrition and fitness. Running with my dog certainly helps.
bad idea to lie on online profiles.
I can say I'm good at rhetoric. I know how to write and give a good speech, and I'm good at delivering it. Same goes for presentations. I'm also good at getting people excited about things.
I'm a good cook. I've had my fair share of disasters, but with the exception of sweet potato pancakes, I've never had to throw something out. I've since figured out much better ways to cook sweet potatoes, and I make a mean pad thai and some good sushi rolls. I also love to bake, and am willing to experiment with flavours and decorations. Sangria cupcakes, anyone?
I can sew like you wouldn't believe. Dresses, costumes and decorative pillows, you name it, I can probably do it. On the creative end, there's little I don't like doing, for that matter. I can paint, draw, and write. Don't ask me to sing, though.
I'm also pretty good at keeping active and living healthy. I've got a bit of a sweet tooth, and I get busy with work, but I figure the benefits of both are too good to miss out on.
If they're standing close enough, I've been told I have very interesting eyes, as well.
fiction, Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet, or Forever Amber
by Kathleen Winsor. For Sci-Fi/Fantasy, it's a tie between
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card and Dune by Frank Hebert,
though I normally prefer fantasy. For Non-Fiction, Until You are
Dead by Julian Sher, and The World Without Us by Alan Weisman.
I feel I should also make mention of The List; A Love Story in 781
Chapters by Aneva Stout, because it's cute. For movies, favourites
are Willow and Shawshank Redemption. For music, pretty much
anything. Particular favourites right now are VNV Nation,
Pearl Jam, Oomph!, Sonata Arctica, Flobots, and
Patrick Wolf. In terms of food, I just really enjoy eating. I
don't have a particular favourite, but I do have a sweet tooth.
Food. Technically that's more than six, but I feel some things
can't travel separately.
I also might leave you for the sound of Alan Rickman's voice.
