My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a caring, passionate and intelligent woman....and I'm a goof ball.

I believe your gut feeling is pretty much always right, the hard part is usually listening to it.

I can quote "Animal House," "Slap Shot" and "Airplane," from start to finish. I've been told this is an attractive quality...

I am happier now than I've ever been. In spite of a few ups and downs, increasing happiness has been the general trend in my life. I'm looking for someone who can say the same.

I find men with excellent vocabularies extremely attractive.

My idea of a good night is sharing a well-made meal with good friends over a glass of wine or beer. My idea of a great night is doing this in a foreign city, or in front of a campfire in a national park, surrounded by stars.

I enjoy the process of learning, and the process of creating new things as much as I enjoy the end result: a degree, a delicious meal or a knitted scarf.

I like making people laugh. I try my best to be a good friend.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in my third year of medical school. My life is busy but it's not so busy that I don't make time for friends, family or loved ones.

It may seem crazy to go back to school in your thirties and borrow a ton of money and give up a well paying job that you enjoyed, but it's crazier to me to spend your whole life thinking, "I never did….I wish I had…., If only i'd….." Medicine is a passion for me, and my hope is to someday be the kind of doctor who helps people feel good and stay healthy. If the worst happens, I want to be the kind of doctor who helps people to feel less alone, confused or anxious when faced with bad medical news.

Before medical school I worked as speech-language pathologist (aka speech therapist) and before that I taught elementary french (and worked in a restaurant, I almost went in to culinary school instead of going for speech therapy. I decided not to because I didn't want to work weekends and nights…funny how life turns out. It turns out I am willing work weekends and nights if it involves saving lives…)

When I'm not studying or working, I'm usually grabbing a good meal with friends, stalking my favorite food bloggers for their most recent posts, reading, knitting, cooking, exploring Philly. I'm not much of a drinker during the school year since one drink makes me too mellow to study these days, but when I have the time I've been enjoying learning how to make delicious cocktails. These two are my recent faves:

I travel when I can. The most recent trip was a family reunion in Hawaii. Being kind of a mountain girl, I didn't expect to fall in love with Hawaii, but I did.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read a lot. Right now I'm re-reading the Outlander series which is sort of compensating for the fact that I don't have starz…or cable… Next up: I'm dying to get into the work of Paul Ekman, a psychologist who studies facial expression and micro expressions as tools for identifying deception. Other recent faves: The Checklist Manifesto, Destiny of the Republic, Bonk and I've finally delved into Game of Thrones.

Movies: Long time favorites include "Rear Window,""Animal House," "Slap Shot," (see above) Anything James Bond (except the Roger Moore years), "Pride and Prejudice" "Bourne Identity" "Gone With The Wind," (mostly for sentimental reasons.) Pretty much anything with Johnny Depp. Hoping to catch the James Brown biopic while it's still in theaters.

Shows: Colbert Report, Lie to Me, Daily Show, Archer, Mad Men, Arrested Development, Rachel Maddow to name a few. I don't have a lot of down time for tv these days.

Music: My tastes are pretty ecclectic: Folk, Rock, Classical, Funk...Al Green, Francis Cabrel, Celia Cruz, The Beatles, Ibrahim Ferrer, The Low Anthem, The Decemberists, Marvin Gaye, Johnny Cash, Glenn Gould, Eva Cassidy, Simon and Garfunkel…I've seen Lee Fields in concert twice, and he was absolutely amazing. If you ever get the chance go see him.

Food: Anything that's made with care and love and ingredients that once grew or walked on the earth. I'll try virtually any food once, and I love pretty much all cuisines. I love to cook, and I have a great circle of friends who share good food and drink together. I love open air markets, farm stands, diners, a coffee shop where the coffee and the atmosphere are both equally sustaining. I eat mostly vegetarian, except when I…ahem….don't.

Coffee: Yes
