Despite all my best efforts, I am neither easy-going nor carefree; rather, I am intense and precise and expect just as much from others as I expect from myself. I am a study in contradictions, like most people are: I am impatient and maybe just a little bit arrogant but kind-hearted, compassionate, and well-mannered. I can be reserved, judgmental, and proud but also passionate, thoughtful, and generous to those I love. I love animals and have been known to cry when those awful SPCA commercials come on. And, I once spent a ridiculous amount of money to have a feeding tube put into my cat when he inexplicably stopped eating on his own.
Though originally hailing from the Midwestern U.S., of all the places I’ve travelled, Edinburgh remains my favourite; that said, nothing beats wandering around a new city and discovering its hidden gems. Currently, I’m torn between Germany, Italy, and Spain in choosing the destination for my next trip.
There’s a special enjoyment to be had in books and museums, and like most academics, I am, I suppose, somewhat eccentric. I regularly fall into research rabbit holes on topics ranging from the history of the Scottish Highlands to cooking hacks that save time in the kitchen. More than anything though, I am a nerd who enjoys all things Tolkien, George R.R. Martin, and Harry Potter with a healthy dose of text-based roleplaying and a budding enjoyment for Doctor Who thrown in.
Classy broad with nerdy interests enjoys cooking, travelling, museums, and books. Can be intense and perhaps a little difficult to win over, but the reward of having done so successfully is well worth the effort. Please pardon the obnoxiousness of the lingering American accent.
