My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A Summary (TL;DR readers): I'm an outgoing, rough-and-tumble, easy-going intellectual with a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. I love nature and my animals, especially my dog Strider. I love the outdoors, hiking, swimming, running, mountain biking, camping, reading, watching TV, socializing with people, drinking coffee, yada yada.

The Novella: I'm not the type of girl to get all squeamish at the prospect of gutting a fish or all weak in the knees after a hard crash from my mountain bike....

Well, crap, the issue I find with creating a profile is that it's simply impossible to find a good stage to represent myself from without speaking from a soap box. Even if I devoted myself to hours of editing and writing and produced a novel, you still wouldn't know the person that I am. Sure, you'd understand the gist of me, but certainly not the nuances. Like my compulsion to engage in intellectual topics, but also be seen as light hearted as I can actually be without giving the impression of bipolarity. How I am most often a leader, but I enjoy when others take the reins without making you see me as traditional or dependent.

Further, how can I know others from only a few paragraphs? I know that as honest as I attempt to be in a profile, that still I've invested time in tailoring it to seem more approachable. But the thing about people is, is that we're messy and imperfect and dynamic. That's what I love about meeting new people, is the chance to get to know the unplanned moments and the unedited versions of people.

So, this entire profile is just a summary of a whole person. You'll get the gist.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working on my masters in folklore at the UO. I go out and conduct fieldwork throughout the Pacific Northwest, working with FisherPoets and others. As far as non-academia, I've been working on getting stronger physically and spiritually. So running trail running, horseback riding, yoga, and meditation.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm fairly good at getting along with about anybody.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Honesty, nature, new experiences, my health, my animals, coffee...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How weird human behavior is- I wouldn't be telling the truth if I said I didn't see "the jungle" sort of scenes when I walk into bars and other social establishments.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends, locked up in a hole studying, running with my goober of a dog, or all of the above. Oh yes, sometimes I sit on my tush and do just about nothing in a very productive sort of manner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once decked a guy on my crew (commercial fishing) who got a little too handsy while we were drinking. Now I have the nickname of Ingemar, a famous Swedish boxer. So maybe I'm not the daintiest of women.
You should message me if
