Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have no idea where to start, so here goes. I guess the first
thing to say is that I love dogs. My 18 month old mutt is my best
friend. I love the mountains and the beach. I enjoy hiking and
camping, as well as walks on the beach.(so lame, but it's what it
do!) I have been working for the National Park Service through
Rutgers University studying beach erosion and coastal processes for
more than 5 years. I started the job as a way to get experience,
but fell in love with what I do.
As I have said above, I'm pretty easy going. I am eager to please,
but not compromising. I enjoy having deep conversations about
politics, philosophy, the environment, etc. Don't get me wrong, I
love to laugh and make people laugh. Being goofy is just as
important, I just like people with a head on their shoulders. I
like to go out on the town on the weekend and occasionally during
the week, but most of the time I would like someone to cuddle with
and watch movies. (Does that sound too desperate? If anyone thinks
so let me know.)
I'm looking for a girl to have a real connection with. I think that
communication and openness are essential to a relationship. That
means more than just talking, having meaningful and comfortable
silences is important too.
I am caring/loyal/loving, easy-going, and intellectual
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just graduated from Rutgers in May '09 with a degree in Geology
and Environmental Geomatics(GIS or simply put map making). I
enjoyed my time at school and love to learn for learning sake... I
have four minors too (Philosophy, Natural Resource Management,
Ecology and Evolution, and Marine Science). Right now I working for
the National Park Service through a contract with Rutgers. I work
for the Gateway National Recreational Area and am based out of
Sandy Hook. My job involves running various types of GPS surveys as
well as sediment and micro/macrofauna collection and analysis. It's
a great job because I basically get to walk on the beach at work
when I'm in the field.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have been told that I'm very good at listening, but I don't
really know I wasn't paying attention. I like to think that I am
empathetic as well. I usually get along with everybody.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my adorable dog. He's usually with me. If he's not with
me, my eyes. I have had people tell me they like my eyes. I also
used to have really long hair but shaved it off in July. When I did
have long hair girls always told me that they were jealous of my
hair. Maybe I should keep growing it out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Meadowlands: Wilderness Adventures on the Edge of a City By
Robert Sullivan. - It's a great story that looks at the destruction
of the NJ wetlands, and the steps to remediate the environmental
degredation. He includes journal entries and sketches of the
ecology that is making a comeback.
The Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow series by Orson Scott Card. - I
know that it's kind of dorky, but I had to Ender's Game for my
freshman year of high school. Now I have read the series through
about 4 times.
Music - Everyone tells me that I have an absurdly eclectic taste in
music. I'm a fan of classic rock/British Invasion ( Beatles,
Rolling Stones, Kinks, Who) I also like old school blues (Johnny
Lee Hooker, B.B. King) and bluegrass. I love Beck because he
doesn't fit into any music genre. Other bands that make my list are
Belle and Sebastian, Rilo Kiley, Beastie Boys, Allman Brothers,
Credence Clearwater Revival, Benny Goodman, John Cash, Bob Dylan,
Bob Marley, Billy Holliday, Cake, The Get Up Kids, Tom Waits, At
the Drive-In, Al Green, well I think you get the picture.
Food- I'm not fussy, I usually forget to eat unless I get reminded.
