I moved to Boston a year ago for grad school. I'm finishing an M.S. in Library and Information Science, while working two jobs to get by. It keeps me pretty busy but the end is in sight. Knowledge is very important to me--I like people who take every opportunity to learn, no matter what the method. I am, of course, an avid reader and I like other book-y people. I live with another librarian friend and our walls are basically held up by mountains of books.
I'm also a huge nerd and love to get excited and be around other excitable people! I love anything fantasy (and usually sci-fi)... grew up watching Star Trek, Star Wars and old Doctor Who with my Dad, which I like to think made me the woman I am today. I love absolutely anything involving Joss Whedon (Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dr. Horrible, etc.), Battlestar Galactica, Cowboy Bebop, Doctor Who, etc. etc. I'm not necessarily only looking for people who share my interests in this area... but I really love being around people who can get a little obsessed with non-mainstream pop culture from time to time.
My personal disclaimer about myself would be that I am very emotionally independent. I don't like being needed by anyone (in fact it sends me running for the hills) and I need a lot of my own space. My ideal relationship would be one in which we both have wonderful lives of our own and then meet in the middle and enjoy each other's company. It may already be obvious but I have a deeply pragmatic streak.
I love to travel (when I can afford it) and I enjoy change. I grew up in Toronto and cherish my Canadian roots but I married someone from New Orleans and lived down there for five years (big change from the north). In comparison, moving to Boston when I was single again was a snap. I really like it here but I have yet to become deeply attached to living in any one place. For me there is nothing like learning to love somewhere new and making friends there.
I'm very liberal and a feminist. I'm not militant by any stretch but it's important to me that people I spend time with respect me in the same way that I respect them.
