I pretty much just got into town. I've spend the last three years of my life in Philly going to law school. Before Philly, I was in the Midwest. I'm loving my new home already, but definitely need some new friends (or more?) to explore the all that Northern California has to offer.
I know it's often said, but how the hell does someone actually summarize his or herself? I feel like I'm being asked to give my elevator pitch to would-be dates. That's overrated—so here are some random tidbits (I feel like you can only really get to know someone by talking to them anyway):
I've wanted to be a lawyer since 8th grade.
I believe in listening, empathy, and action.
I believe there are really only two things in life that I can control: my attitude and my effort.
I am absolutely an unabashed nerd.
While I am most curious about all things law/politics/philosophy, I like know a little about a lot. So whatever your passion is, I'll probably dig it too.
I'm super into typography.
After three years of law school, I love that I'm able to read fiction again.
I had brain surgery in 7th grade. (Chiari malformation).
Despite multiple trips to Disney World/Land, I've never met Mickey (sneaky bastard).
I have a dry, dark, quirky, and occasionally juvenile sense of humor.
I enjoy schadenfreude.
Sometimes I find myself chuckling at things that no one else finds entertaining.
I'm tired of the IPA craze... I get it... it has hops. Cool story. I like IPAs too, but sometimes it's nice to have something a bit more complex.
I know why it's called an IPA.
As much as I enjoy craft beer/microbrews, I enjoy Miller High Life and PBR just as much.
I believe in loyalty, integrity, and trust.
I love being outdoors.
I miss city life.
I love music, movies, and art.
I loathe the question: "What do you do for fun?"
I don't do online dating; I do online introductions.
I have ADHD—predominately inattentive type.
I believe in the right to choose and marriage equality.
I believe in being both chivalrous and a feminist.
I'm attracted to strong, intelligent, and independent women.
I am utterly incapable of taking a flattering selfie (or pictures in general).
For me, a good conversation is the greatest aphrodisiac.
This should be enough fodder to get us started, yeah?
