I'm a realistic optimist that finds myself often looking around and being really excited about the fact that I'm alive in general.
Born and raised in North Dakota, I've lived in Colorado almost a decade. As such, I've got plenty of the rural/urban dichotomy in me. I've been raised to be extremely dry and sarcastic, to love football (I'm a die-hard, lifelong Green Bay Packers fan and I don't do pink jerseys,) and to handle a vehicle in all of the elements. I love books, parties, video games, and Star Wars. I love getting dressed up and going out into the city, I drink champagne like it's going out of style, and a good costume party is always guaranteed to bring out the actress in me.
I am a constant thinker. I live for good conversation and I am always bringing up the no-nos that are sure to kill normal, casual conversation--why shouldn't we talk about them and get to know ourselves and each other a bit more? I'm extremely passionate, but I love listening to other people's stories and how they ended up where they did in life...not just in their day-to-day, but in their personal outlook as well.
That being said, I'm also wildly interested in daily life. While I truly enjoy talking conceptually about the bigger picture, I have really dedicated myself to paying attention to the small details in each day. I need a healthy balance of both to keep me dreaming and grounded all at the same time.
