I am a funny, easy-going college graduate with two jobs whose life
only sometimes revolves around work. I am one of those really
strange people who likes to work and have been told by my
acupuncturist to seek more balance. So I am...
I am also trying to see if there are any decent guys left with
something other than video games to talk about. In fact being able
to have a balanced conversation is important to me. So guys, use
your words... ;) In other words if all you send is a Hi, then I
often don't respond...
I like my family and friends above stuff, and I do my absolute best
to find joy in everyday things (most of the time I am successful);
I am mostly a positive person. I love to read, cook, do the movie
thing, enjoy a glass of wine, exercise (when motivated), spend time
at the cabin, play cards/board games, take walks and be outside in
my humble garden.
I also love hockey and it's kind of a deal breaker to at least put
up with it, but I would really like someone who likes it too! Go
Wild! (And b/c I am from TX - Go Stars!)
I like to think I am pretty witty and I love to laugh. :)
****Please note, I want to have a child someday so if that's not
part of your future, let's not waste time. Good luck out there!
What I’m doing with my life
I am in education. I work for a curriculum company and love it. I
used to teach and so maybe that is part of the reason I usually
feel dorky or nerdy. I see those as positive qualities.
I’m really good at
English stuff and cooking and teaching. I do like to think I am
good listener, at least that's what I am told.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and hair on a physical level (and sometimes my crazy
socks). On a personal level, I have been told many times I am easy
to talk to and a free laugher... beyond that you will have to
discover that for yourself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love most food (except olives). Favorite music is also a long
list so my top 3 are John Butler Trio, DMB, and U2. I like a bunch
of movies too, so to name a few, the HP series, the Dragon tattoo
series in Sweedish, Amelie, Mystery Alaska, French Kiss, and Zach
and Miri... I like shows like the GoT, The Musketeers, Burn Notice,
The Office, Parks and Rec, and I am an avid Glee fan! I know that
last will send you running for the hills but oh well. It is simply
too fun! I also totally sing along with it... sorry in
I love to read and have too many favorites to list here, but a
sample would included TFIOS, Harry Potter, Life of Pi, Girl with
the Dragon Tattoo, Song of Fire and Ice series (and yes I watch
GoT). Basically, my reading serves to reinforce my nerdiness...
Which I in no way downplay. ;)
The six things I could never do without
1. Books 2. music 3. my family (especially my mom) 4. My friends 5.
my cats 6. the ability to make lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wondering where my keys are, how fortunate I am to have so many
wonderful people in my life, and yes, some work stuff...
Oh and silently correcting the grammar on some of these profiles.
Just calling a spade a spade.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies. Reading, watching a movie, hanging out with family or
friends, or trying a new restaurant with my bestie... it totally
depends. If I am really lucky, I am driving to the family cabin!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can curl my tongue both ways, at the same time.
Either that's gross or kinda cool or a turn on. You decide.
You should message me if
You can say more than just "hi", you can carry a good conversation,
are kind, know how to punctuate and spell a little, like hockey, or
simply because you think I am wicked awesome! LOL
OR if you need help editing your site. I don't think perfection is
required but if you spell every 4th word wrong, I am happy to
Note, that if all you say is hi, I probably won't respond.
