-gasp- Did you say serious! Wow, I almost feel as if there are little voices in my head. Kidding.
*gameshow voice* "Amber, come on down! It's time to tell you all about yourself!" If you haven't already guessed it, I have a bit of an imagination and I am a bit strange (or fun) at times. If you meet me face to face, I will probably seem really shy at first. This goes away pretty quickly if we find something to talk about or I get to know you better. Do something silly or idiotic, and I will probably start laughing and open up a lot quicker.
Guess what everyone? My latest accomplishment is that I got my associates degree! WOOOOO! Next stop, going for the Bachelor’s! Yes, it's a little later than what people usually do. I'm still damned proud of myself for it. (Oh yeah, sometimes I curse like a sailor.) I work in the IT field. Yes, I can fix your computer, no I probably won't fix your computer unless you asked really, really nicely and I knew you really well. I spend a lot of time with computers at work, I'm not always wanting to be around them away from work.
My hobbies are endless. Really. To name a few, biking, hiking, camping (give me real camping, not the prepaid lots. Harder to find places that allow it, but I love it). Shopping, cooking (guys, yes, I will make you a sandwich.) I can cook just about anything, and if I can't, I'll figure out how to cook it. My family and friends rave about my cooking, and if I didn't do IT, I would probably be a chef. Ice skating is one of my favorite activities recently. I like crafty things, watching movies, technology, and yes I love video games. I'm not just talking diner dash or facebook games, I'm talking about some call of duty, Assassins creed, Halo, and recently have been finding myself losing reality into Skyrim.
I'm not thin. I'm kinda big. Get over it. Some people don't like it, and if you're stuck on it, then you're not the person for me. Yes, I work out, yes I diet. Being open and honest here, I have a condition similar to diabetes that I was born with. Because of it, it's really hard for me to get thin (although it's my goal one day!) If you want to be part of my effort and work out with me, walking (I can't run for very long, I had a knee injury in ROTC) then awesome! If you want to mold me into your perfect dream girl by trying to help me out by shedding pounds, I'm not against that - as long as you still like me even if it ends up not working. I was in the ROTC through my first round of college, have been in and out of martial arts since I was 15 (I need to start that again) yes I am a black belt. I absolutely love ice skating and go about once a week, take me to a trail and you will be my best friend. Campfires are sexy and romantic. I'm very outdoorsy and I love sleeping outside under the stars. I love swimming too.
I love kids. I don't have any kids, but I love them. My mini-person cousin is my world. When I spend time around her, I lose myself from everything else. She is my entire focus. I'm trying to teach her violin, so that alone is going to be some fun times. You don't have to like kids, that's fine. One day though, I would like to adopt.
