My self-summary
Recovering nerd looking for adventure. But not extreme adventures, just the regular kind. You know what they say, "You only live once." That's why you should be extra careful and always wear a helmet when you're biking (though I'm pretty sure a helmet will not save you from certain death when hurtling down a hill at 40 miles an hour).

I've traveled the world but only when I was younger. So I don't remember any of it. So now I'm looking to do it again but hopefully remember this time. I did teach English in China after graduating college though. They walk upside down there because it's on the other side of the world. True story.

I do not feel particularly strongly about the Oxford comma; but I do wish people would respect the subjunctive mood more.
What I’m doing with my life
Biking, power lifting, and cat hugging.

I work in modeling.

My five year plan is to make friends with someone who owns a dog.
I’m really good at
Being sore.

Dropping things. And picking them up I guess. But dropping is the fun part.

Accidentally outing myself as a nerd.
The first things people usually notice about me
My ass? Years of rigorous squatting will do that. Plus you know, the bike shorts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food - Anything except cilantro. Oh and no carbs. Unless I'm biking a century, then I will eat carbs. ALL THE CARBS. I also love to cook. I am proud to say nobody (important) has ever died from eating my cooking.

Music - I really only listen to like German death reggae, Halloween sound effects from the 1950s, and Bette Midler. Obviously.

Books - Favorites include Catch-22, Dune, and all 5 parts of the Hitchhiker's trilogy.

Movies - I don't get around to watching many movies but American Beauty is my favorite. Grand Budapest Hotel was the last good one I watched.
The six things I could never do without
My cats
My bike
Hotsauce
NPR
Probably two other things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I was a starboard for one year and then switched to port, does that still make me bisweptual?

How the political right in this country has managed to attain a curly mustache twirling level of evilness and yet is still able to garner votes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Awesome.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have never seen The Princess Bride. Please let me know if you can help me rectify this.

I lift to screamo, it's like being in high school in the early 2000's; I am really embarrassed by this.
You should message me if
You:
are the girl that blew by me on that Trek Speed Concept,
have a dog I can pet,
want to go bike touring,
know your way around an Olympic bar,
can make an anagram out of "Banach-Tarski",
are undaunted by and can pick out the two incredibly nerdy photos I have,
are unapologetically feminist.

If any of the above apply to you please message me immediately.
