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'll admit I impressively 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 pursuing a J.D. with a concentration in Health Law, but it wasn't for me. Believe it or not I still have all those naive 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. Currently trying to figure out what exactly I want to go back to grad school for. So many options...
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?
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 or at least in situations like this where other people can read it. To rectify that I took a creative writing course recently. Never got around to it in undergrad, but 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 explore it further
I don't like people who take themselves or life too seriously. Life is far too important to be taken seriously. 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 I will have a bit of fun but I doubt you will enjoy it very much, so I would advise you to just avoid.
Test for dating: Should have a passport and a library card (or as an update to that test,an e-reader). Not to be too picky, but at least a bachelors degree is important to me as well. Need I mention my opinion if you still live with your parents? Of course all people are different and what make a person interesting can vary greatly. Hell, if I could homeschool grad school, I absolutely would. I hate the organized educational system. I would much rather just read whatever catches my interest at the time. I need someone who can be pragmatic but open to and always looking for adventure as well.
