My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Vivacious is a word that I commonly use to describe myself. Mostly because of that damn game where you use an adjective that starts with the first letter of your name is really hard for anyone who's name starts with a V. Anyways back to me...

I'm 26 and haven't been in a serious relationship since I was 18. Does that make me worry that I won't ever find someone? Sometimes. Mostly though I am happy and proud of the things that I have done in my life. I love all of the places that life has taken me and I am almost sure had I met someone earlier in life I wouldn't be where I am right now. Life is quite fantastic despite the stress that grad school tends to bring.

I am a passionate person which is both a good a bad thing. I am a complete slob and if you ever see my room clean give it two days. I'm fiercely independent but also needy for attention at times. I'm loud and usually opinionated but the amount of empathy I have for the world overtakes me at some of the most random times. I'm also a terrible speller. I sometimes have a problem with story topping, I don't mean to but I usually have a similar but cooler story :). I hate when people use ellipse incorrectly or just inappropriate punctuation in general (though I have not quite mastered the comma).

I'm always down for a weekend adventure and I seriously become joyful when I find awesome deals on websites like Priceline and Groupon. I'm also on a mission to visit all of the midwest baseball parks before I graduate. Combining my love of baseball with affordable travel just makes me giddy.

To sum it up I am a pretty wacky individual. My friends think I am great and I believe I have a lot to offer someone, that someone, when I find them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
School that is all. First time only being a student and I kinda love it. My goal is to become a Public Defender, I want to give oppressed people who can't afford their own attorneys a chance at a fair trial. Whether or not I agree with what they have done everyone deserves their due process. Later in life I'd love to start a non profit or join with an existing agency that provides free legal services to young women who have been forced into prostitution. This is a growing problem for US born inner city youth and I can go on about it for days.
I'm also earning my Masters of Social Work while in law school. If everything goes as planned I'll be getting both degrees in 2016!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh even if it is at my own expense. I'm also a fantastic wingman. I can get probably anyone laid (even if I have to do it myself ;) ). See I told you I was funny.

I'm also really great at planning things. I am the go to friend to plan weekend outings and I never let my friends down. I'm a strong advocate in every aspect of my life.

I'm also good at being self aware. I'm sometimes painfully honest but I think hiding the truth only just wastes everyone's time, one of my biggest pet peeves by the way.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In Iowa, probably how I tend to be pretty straight forward, something that makes me stand out as a non-Midwesterner.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm just going to be honest and say I don't like watching movies. I'll do it if I really like the person but I will never be the one to say "Hey let's go to a movie!". Sorry I know it makes me weird.
My taste in music is varied and usually dictated by my mood. Ke$ha gets me pumped to go out and Mumford and Sons sings me to sleep. For some reason Adele's "Someone Like You" gets me pumped sometimes.
My all time favorite band is Dashboard Confessional. I no longer am an emo kid but I still love his vocals and I am really into Chris Carrabbas new band Twin Forks.

My favorite book since the age of 12 has been Stargirl, I actually have a small tattoo of the little stick figure that is on the cover of it.

I'll also add that I enjoy sports a lot. I have a bit of an obsessive problem when I get interested in a sport. Something somewhat obscure pulls me in but then i become a huge fan. SF Giants for instance; I fell in love with Brian Wilson and then became obsessed with the Giants even after he left (I have had my own account for two years now). 49ers while always a fan from back when I watched them in training camp at UOP having Kaepernick be from the 209 made me even more pumped about them. Then there is womens gymnastics, actually no clue i have always loved them. I do feel somewhat weird for following a bunch of Team USA who are underage :/
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My SF Giants pillow pet (I don't like animals so it's the closest thing I will have to a pet for awhile). Edited to add he was on TV when I went to the Cubs game and had Pablo "The Panda" Sandoval hug him!
Turkey pepperoni (shit is delicious).

That is all I can think of for now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I should be studying more. What I want to do when I graduate. Will I sell out if I get offered a high paying job? (Edited to add I officially am not selling out) Where will I live?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and about with friends trying to avoid undergrad bars unless my friends and I are feeling trashy. I look forward to the day when I figure out how to enjoy downtown Iowa City. As of now I find my weekend nights out a bit underwhelming.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My longest relationship was 8 months and it ended in 2007. Can't hold me down!
I love the taste of soap.
I use Old Spice deodorant.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You find me as hilarious as I find myself. You can handle me relentlessly teasing you as my way of flirting. You care about service and volunteerism.
Do not message me saying "What's up". If you read my profile and cannot think of a clever way to engage with me then we would never have worked out. Although I will say from experience this is hard but at a minimum you should be able to personalize an initial message in some way.
I'd also like to add that I genuinely feel bad when someone writes me a nice message and I ignore it because I am not interested.
