My self-summary
Much like a majority of people, I don't enjoy filling these things out. I believe that a person can get to know me better through conversation than by reading a block of text that I've written about myself, and it would be more interesting. However, that being said, I have to put something here to inspire people to want to engage me in conversation, so here I go: I'm an big introvert who's forced to be very extroverted on a daily basis. I'm a bit of a nerdgirl. I enjoy the arts in nearly all forms. I'm perpetually quixotic. When I'm sick I buy myself Avengers toys to make myself feel better. I read books, watch movies, paint, sketch, sing poorly, love to cook, have dogs I adore & kitties I love, and am a single mom. I work a lot. I have a thing for bees. Also dinosaurs. Rawr. Godzilla is my favorite super hero.
What I’m doing with my life
I imagine what most people are doing with their lives - living through it each day. Working, enjoying parts of it, dreading some bits, wondering why we have as many cereal choices at the grocery store as we do.
I’m really good at
I obviously have a bias opinion here, but I think I'm really good at a number of things. I think I'm good at cooking, and baking, and finding awesome deals, sorting candy into colored piles, being me. Yup, I'm super awesome at being me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hard to say, since I'm not other people. It used to be my very long dark hair, however that's all been cut & donated. Possibly my chipper personality?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll read nearly anything I can get my hands on. I gravitate towards fiction, in the same genres as the movies I like to view.
Movies - Action, comedy, horror, drama, suspense. I tend to avoid most chick flicks, though.
Music - Classic rock, oldies, blues, hip hop, pop, R&B, Folk, punk. I like a number of artists. My playlists are often all over the place. They'll bounce from Neil Diamond to Manson, then from KISS and AC/DC to Amos Lee, then over to Jessie J to George Watsky, and land on some Die Antwoord before finishing with some Fleetwood Mac. I've been told I have "no sense of musical flow".
Food - Just about everything, and I love to cook & bake.
The six things I could never do without
My Mustang
Cold coffee
Cell phone (let's be honest)
Electric Blankets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Finances, work, new cooking recipes, science, gummy bears, the color blue, my daughter, pets, how many more fluffy blankets & pillows I can pile on my bed & still fit myself, dinosaurs, song lyrics, garlic salt, tattoos, rebates, the rapid decline of the bee population...
On a typical Friday night I am
Depending on which Friday night it is, I may be spending time with family, reading a book alone, or I may be crashed out on my couch with my puppies watching movies/playing video games. Puppy dogs & I are super classy like that... And they're always glued to me
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Shhh.... That's private
You should message me if
You're interested in a frienship, are nice, aren't a raging pycho, like coffee, like critters, like Dr Who, like Harley Quinn, can't resist clicking that button, or are an adult & can come up with your own damn reason :D
