Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My family means the world to me and we are quite close even though
I keep moving away. I love to take advantage of the unique
experiences various places have to offer, and all that is even
better in good, easy-going company. Food experiences, traveling and
playing outside in the mountains or water make me happy. As for
politics, I am economically conservative, but socially liberal
(what folks do in their own home is none of the gov't's business).
I am a cradle Catholic from South Louisiana, so religion to me is
almost as much about culture as it is about seeking The Greatness.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I went to 4 undergrads, graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill, followed a
whim to pastry school after that, just finished my MA in American
History (I primarily study food as a social history), and am now
starting the PhD program at LSU. While I still bake professionally
on occasion, I really want to be a college professor. Teaching is
just so invigorating! I would also like to get more into farming.
Manual labor complements intellectual work so well. Settling back
home (to be close to family and the farm) or somewhere rather near
there one day is ideal, so long as I can keep traveling. It's
silly, but I fear looking back on my life, or even the last year,
and realizing that I have accomplished no challenge, done nothing
interesting, or not challenged one of my fears.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
procrastibaking (baking instead of working), making people feel
welcome (it's how I got my best friend in junior high), cooking too
much food and giving it away, putting up barbed wire fence,
shucking corn, and doing silly things sober.

let my hair do its thing. Other than that it just depends on where
we meet. I may be the person dancing like your average white girl

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Boondock Saints and Empire Records, plus probably Princess Bride
(book and movie) and Can't Hardly Wait are favorite movies. Scent
of a Woman -- oh how I love a man that can dance! Unfortunately I
do not have much time or will to read for leisure because I have to
do a ton of reading (ok, skimming) for school, but I do enjoy
fiction as a way to escape my own head. Good Omens is likely my
favorite novel and everyone should read Blink! by Malcolm Gladwell.
Nikka Costa is my favorite go-to artist, but I like quite a wide
range of music. Texas country and 60s-style soul have been on the
top of my recent playlists. I also really like classic rock. Allman
Bros.'s Eat a Peach is definitely the best road trip album. Food...
where to begin?! I'm a total foodie, don't get me started.
The six things I could never do without

graduate school and academic things, family stuff, how to be a

Can we talk about what I would RATHER being doing on a Friday

I am complicated, sensitive, ditzy, analytical, defensive,
simplistic, tough, and a little too open. Also, I'm totally
infatuated with Mike Rowe.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are an intelligent, educated goofball looking for someone to
enjoy the area with and want to have little (or big!) adventures,
enjoy laid back conversation and movie nights, and (be honest with
yourself) are not intimidated by a woman who is a well-educated,
mildly ambitious tomboy who has an affinity for stilettos. Oo, and
if you can two-step and/or have mechanical skills! The former
because I love to dance, and the latter because I like to be around
people with practical skills, aren't afraid to get dirty, and can
teach me stuff!
