I am highly opinionated and rather smart, but I make up for it by such things as being intentionally self deprecating, also unintentionally so help by the fact that I can also come across as a bit ditzy and ok, I truly truly excel at being a klutz : ) I am also very loyal, but wary. I am most certainly not afraid to call you out on well, just about anything, but I can take what I give. I do speak my mind. I can make the best out of most situations and I love to laugh, although my sense of humor can be rather dark. I was persuing a J.D. with a concentration in Health Law, but it wasn't for me. Believe it or not I still have all those niave I can save the world ideas. You could call me a bleeding heart liberal, but a totally cynical one. Instead I realized that the human soul does definitively exist as they were stealing more and more of my own every day.
I'm not from Indiana, but seem to be stuck in a black hole that just will not let me go.... oops, I mean, who doesn't love it here?
I had gotten admitted to and planned to attend grad school for psychology in the fall, but I decided to forgo going back to grad school for a bit longer. I think research in psychology is really fascinating, but I was even more sure Law School was that and look where that led. I also have some dream in my head to go for interdisciplinary stuff mixing sociobiological psychology with philosophy, which sounds thrilling to me, but I am probably best served spending a bit more time, um, trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.
Yes I know, you are probably bore to death by now. Yes, I love books and learning and school. But that's just one side of me. Believe me I can party with the best of them, blame Law School for that if nothing else. I'm generally up for trying anything once, and anything new, I'm usually pretty excited by. Total nerd plus party girl, it can happen
Likes: I generally think that life is too short to have favorites, but I always love trying new things and going new places, I generally hold to the axiom that anything is worth trying once. I like to travel, but have not done so nearly as much as I would like to. I did get to spend the summer in the Netherlands in 2010, and adored it, as I did my study abroad at the University of Amsterdam in college, with some travel in Germany, France ( ok I lasted one day), and Belgium. I read to an almost pathological level, but nerdiness is cool right?
Dislikes: Writing about myself, at least in situations like this where other people can read it. To rectify that I took a creative writing course last semester. Never got around to it in undergrad, and for some reason, I'd been really fascinated by the idea for some time so i decided to finally go for it. Obviously it did not cure my problems with verbosity, but I really enjoyed it and would like to take another course in it.
I don't like people who take themselves too seriously, or life. You only live once, so laugh at yourself already. Pettiness also particularly irritates me. If your life is so small you have to put others down to make yourself feel better, well then, you really really picked the wrong person to try that shit on, just take my word for it.
Test for dating: Should have a passport and a library card ( or an update to that test, e-reader). Not to be too picky, but at least a bachelors degree is important to me as well. Also I'm not generally a fan of guys who still live with their parents, sorry. Of course, all people are different, and what make a person interesting can vary greatly. Hell, if I could homeschool grad school, I so would. I hate the organized educational system. I would much rather just read whatever catches my interest at the time.
