My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm awesome. No, seriously.

I am incredibly silly, but I am probably one of the most focused women you'll ever meet. I laugh a lot. I'm also very adaptable. I've learned to strategically play the hand I'm dealt. I have a four year old son who is the love of my life.

I love learning. I'd go to school for the rest of my life if it offered benefits in place of a job. It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to study, and I expect everyone in my life to respect my passion for education--it's something I plan to instill in my kiddo, too.

I worked in the restaurant business for a decade as a server and bartender. If you're a crappy tipper, I will call you out on it and you might not see me again.

I am pretty sarcastic, and I like to think I can be witty. During baseball season, you will constantly find me yelling at the Orioles on TV. It can be kind of painful to be an O's fan, but I have been for my entire life, and that'll never ever change. I've recently gotten into football, and naturally I've picked the Ravens as my team.

Oh and, I'm an ENFJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Raising a gentleman who will make ladies swoon.
Working in a hospital, in the microbiology lab. If you can stomach the answer, ask me about what exactly I do all day.
Trying to be as good of a person as my dog thinks I am.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Quick math, crossword puzzles, using semicolons, and baking. I've been told I have a pretty singing voice. I make a few pretty tasty shots. Also, I can 'Name That Tune' pretty quickly. And I will whoop your butt at Jeopardy and/or Wheel of Fortune. I've got a fantastic photographic memory.

On a less superficial note, I'm pretty awesome at making confusing things understandable, making the best out of situations, and using logic as a weapon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically, my eyes or hair. My tattoos tend to be a conversation starter.
Mentally, my intelligence and humor, and how outgoing I am. I'll talk to just about anyone. This comes partly from being in the bar business for so long. You learn to pretend that everyone is interesting. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like books about science, of course, and I enjoy social commentary (think Chuck Klosterman). I have a few fiction favorites that have stuck with me for years, but I usually read non-fiction now. Textbooks are about all the reading I've been doing lately.

Movies are all over the place for me. Except horror flicks. I'm a total scaredy-cat.

TV: Game of Thrones. I was Khaleesi for Halloween, and my son was a dragon. I watch Food Network a lot to try to learn how to make better food (I grew up picky as shit and my parents allowed it, which blows my mind...I'm getting better every day at cooking new things). I love Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy (as mentioned above--I will totally annihilate you in either) and The Price is Right, because I'm actually 80 years old. And who doesn't love an SVU marathon? My roommate makes me watch The Walking Dead with her even though I spend half of every episode partially covering my face and having super sweaty palms. :/

As far as music goes, I mostly listen to folky/acoustic stuff and indie rock, but I bounce all over the place from Aesop Rock to Sam Cooke. It all depends on my mood.

I love food. I'll eat pretty much anything that tastes good. I don't eat seafood, though, because of a shellfish allergy that is pretty severe, so I stay away from anything that might contain it. I tried a single bite of crabcake one time and was heartbroken over how delicious it was, but then my teeth and throat started itching and it was not pretty. Haha.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My son.
My iPad.
Water. I finally drink enough water to be considered hydrated on a daily basis, and holy crap how was I living before this?!
My circle of friends, because they are the best in the world.
Beer, especially the dark stuff.
A sense of humor. I would have gone completely insane by now if I wasn't able to laugh at everything.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future. I'm a true opportunist, so I think about the ways I'm going to make my life amazing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. Second shift is a pain, sometimes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sleep with my mouth wide open and I tend to drool. Sexy.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over. know how to have a great time, but also when to be serious.'re going to think my "nerding out" about things I do in the hospital is cute. Seriously. I get overly excited about infectious diseases. Humor me. I'll tell you all about the time I ran electrophoretic gels on my own DNA to find out my HLA phenotype. :)

It's important that you recognize that you will need to be a good influence on my little guy. If you're going to play a major role in my life, you will meet him at some point. I won't force it on you. But if you don't think you can handle it, you probably can't.

If you're looking for good conversation that goes beyond the internet and you are turned on by intelligence, then message me. I'm up for meeting anyone. As long as you aren't a weirdo who has slept with his cousin because he'll "sleep with anyone with whom there is a physical attraction". I met one of those guys once. Never again.

I put long-term and short-term dating as well as friends on this because I honestly don't have any idea how I feel about something serious right now. I'm not going to refuse it if it falls into my lap, but I'm not exactly scouring the planet for my future husband.
