I am a geek-appreciator, and have some fairly nerdy tendencies.
I’m incredibly grateful for my friends, who help get me out of my head. I can think things to death.
I'm a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner (read: acupuncturist and herbalist). I love my job, though perhaps too much. Sticking needles in people is challenging and rewarding. It’s like having real-life voodoo dolls. Seriously, I treasure my patients. I am always learning from, and being inspired by them. I’m attempting to bring more balance to my life, or at the very least have more enjoyment outside of work.
Food is Fun, and I’m always trying to learn something new. America’s Test Kitchen is like porn to me.
I require a chaperone and/or restraints when visiting hardware stores, purveyors of kitchen gadgets, or animal shelters, lest I come home with something that I clearly don’t need but seems essential at the time. C’mon, who doesn’t want a lemon reamer and a new puppy?
I appreciate a good conversation on any topic. If I have nothing to contribute, I'll be grateful nonetheless for what I can learn.
Connecting as friends is important for me, regardless of what may follow thereafter. I'm loyal, affectionate, funny (often unintentionally), serious and goofy all at the same time.
