I talk a lot. Like, a lot. I am a total open book; all my thoughts are on the table at all times. Aside from that just being my natural instinct, I also find that it reduces stress in my day to day life. I don't have to worry about what I told to whom, or who knows what, etc. I strive to be as emotionally honest and available as much as I possibly can. The frustrating thing is, I have yet to meet anybody that lives the same way. Whose dumb idea was it to romanticize the cold and aloof thing? Because it sucks. It's a cold, cold world out there for a bleeding heart.
Like I'd said, I tend to go on.
I'm currently in that weird transitional place between graduating from college and being a full-fledged human being. That means that I don't currently have a residence of my own, so if that's a dealbreaker for you, that's fine. I'll catch you on the flipside. If you are in a similar position, we'll have a hard time doing the do, but know that I get where you're coming from.
Also, just as a heads up, my name isn't Jen. I am beginning to regret choosing this username, but I don't want to give this site my hard earned dollars to change it. Those dollars have more urgent places to go, y'know?
Oh, lastly, I'm fairly firm on my age range. I just don't feel comfortable engaging with somebody significantly younger or older than me, especially if you're 10+ years older than me. I'm sorry if that offends you, but honestly if it does then you're probably too old or young for me anyway. I need a contemporary, maaaan.
Clicking on and liking people's profiles on here but never messaging them, despite telling myself "hey, you should message them." Eventually messaging people and then not getting an answer.
This one time I responded to my own message, mistakenly believing they had sent it to me. It was an awkward situation.
-The Gospel According to Larry (it's not what you think it is)
-Looking for Alaska
-Rock of Ages
-Oceans 11, 12, & 13
-Spirited Away (and most other Miyazaki)
-Orange is the New Black (which doesn't come back until 2016, sadly)
Music is too complicated to try and list for the moment. I'll come back to this.
Food (I'm going for categories here):
-Anything with potatoes (because, let's face it, they're delicious.)
-Pizza (but I mean, who doesn't like pizza?)
2) A creative outlet
3) Yummy food
4) My phone, or other means of contact
5) My dog
6) Cold water
I'm also considering spending my tax return on my first tattoo. Not 100% sold on it, but I have an idea of what I'd like to get and an artist whose style I admire, so who knows.
Plus, to be totally honest, I ignore messages that just say "Hi" or "Hello," etc. Folks that send that are casting a broad but shallow net, and it shows a marked lack of real interest in the people who receive them. Put a little effort in, and I'll do the same.
Also, send me your favorite/least favorite/weirdest OkC question and why. There are some pretty odd ones out there.
