My self-summary
since there's quite a long distance between the top where it says "seeing someone" and the bottom where it says "looking for every one for friends and activity partners" i'll put this disclaimer at the top: I'm new to Albany, I've only revived this in hopes of meeting people to hang out with. By which I mean hang out, not date, not sleep with, hang out with. you've now been warned, read or not, its up to you.

simplistically: i like the color purple, twilight, autumn in vermont, snow, and gin in my tonic. superficially: i'm a taller than average brunette, with blue eyes and a good smile. hypothetically: i'm smart, silly, sweet, goofy and geeky, and surprisingly practical. rationally, i think, therefore i am.

i don't really fit in this box or any others. i'm an outgoing introvert. i am both intimidating and charming. i'm a good listener, but i have no time for small talk or argument for the sake of argument. i try to make people happy, but i don't care what they think of me. i'll go with the flow until i'm backed into a corner, then i come out fighting. i'm impulsive, but not spontaneous. reserved, yet open. i write well, but my spelling stinks. i try to be logical, but i have learned to trust my instincts. i'm a control freak and a slob. i see both sides. though, unequivocally i am a big picture person and have no patience for details. so, that's my summary.

according to okcupid's personality test, i'm a "INTJ -The Mastermind," a group of traits shared by 1 percent of the population. this might explain a lot. or nothing at all. having read up some more on what the INTJ is, it is spooky accurate, not just in who i am know but the person i hope to be. the analytic systems builder. and the parts about being the most independent of the 16 types and love and relationships being an achilles heel. that's me in a nutshell.

as for okcupid's astute assessment of my personality as represented by cute little personality badges: less adventurous: check. less kinky: this is probably true, i am totally ok with it. more pessimistic: my best friend from college said i can find the cloud to go with any silver lining. less desiring of sex: this depends solely on the context of the sex, but its not what i'm here for, so i'll concur. less spiritual: check. more methodical: sure, ok, whatever, i make lists then i forget where they are. cruder: definitely. more arrogant: absolutely. more introverted: look its a picture of eyes under a rock, they look like mine. more loving: very true.

I am practical, tough, and compassionate
What I’m doing with my life
Formerly: teacher, nurse, spare mom, advocate, go-between, organizer, legal jargon speaker, hug-giver, worrier, agitator, student, arbitrator of scooby snacks, giver of stickers...saving the world one child at a time.

Currently: student, reader, thinker. Hoping to save the world one school at a time.

in between, i try to paint, ski, hike, swim, cook, spend time with my friends, sketch designs for future metalsmithing projects for when my ship comes in, and/or i win the lottery and can live a life of artistic leisure. i'd like to spend some more time on the water canoeing or kayaking.

watching the snow fall. wishing there was more to watch this winter.
I’m really good at
Reading and writing. Thinking. Treating children with kindness and respect. Feeding my family and friends. Making fun of myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
i'd like to think it's my dashing wit, my cutting intelligence and my sparkly blue-green eyes. however, it's probably that i talk about school all the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books= a prayer for owen meany, and the rest of john irving's oeuvre; vonnegut; margaret atwood, esp. handmaiden's tale, cats eye, oryx and crake; anything absurdist. well, without being ridiculous. i just picked up the long dark tea time of the soul and realized douglas adams still makes me laugh. he inspired me to write a short story about mutant alien jello in the 7th grade. i still dig him.

movies= classics, i<3 bogart, audrey hepburn and cary grant. all time favs include: love and death, when harry met sally, breakfast at tiffany's, the science of sleep, juno. the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy (way skeptical, but it delivered). and no matter how many times i have seen the fifth element, i will watch it again and again. tend to not enjoy movies where the main point is to blow things up. nor do i like most chick flicks. i'm somewhere in the middle.

music= currently nekko case, she & him, phoenix, feist, dylan, the beatles...and too much weqx too and from work.

food= pizza in all it's incarnations, lamb in all forms, chinese takeout, cheeseburgers (oh fiveguys, how i miss thee). breakfast is the best meal of the day, so anything involving eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, hash browns, waffles, cinnamon rolls, biscuits, danish, (chocolate) croissants makes me very happy. along with a great big cup of coffee. as a former sandwich slinger, i have a particular fondness for a well made sandwich. and cheese, please! and oceanic creatures that do not have fins (unless raw), most especially lobster, crab and oysters (hold all the gunk, i like them as they are, tasting of ocean). i feel guilty killing the ocean, so i try not to do it on a regular basis.
The six things I could never do without
having moved back to a tiny town in vermont, my suspicion that there is a lot i could live without has been confirmed. the bare essentials remain: sunshine, four seasons, orange juice, coffee, (lots of) sleep, and my ancient mac laptop. mountains and trees are close runners up.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
social issues: education, poverty, healthcare and especially the place where all three intersect. To that end I am studying for a Ph.D in Education Administration and Policy Studies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i've never broken any bones. but my running list of sprains is in the double digits.
