I'm a bit of an old soul, a music history nerd and an avid reader (bookworm was my first choice to put there, but it seems to have a negative connotation, doesn't it?). I have a quick wit and usually tell a well-timed joke (a skill set developed thanks to an abundance of staff meetings at work I have to lead), so serious bonus points if you're a good laugher/ are at least good at faking. I'm loyal and dependable, organized beyond belief and extremely driven (I tend to have lists of tasks to accomplish). Apparently I love to use parentheses...?
My nickname, which I have been affectionately given, is "Professor Patches", which is a long story I must tell in person. I am a solid cook and have picked up some recipes over the years that I will make for you if we get there. Lately, I have become a big believer in karma. I love nature (particularly autumn in the northeast) and the outdoors and the fact that we have so many parks and little escapes from reality here is amazing.
