My self-summary

Remember the time you were sorting through all of those online profiles and you clicked on mine because you appreciated the southern-ness of my username?

Then you were immediately captured by my frequent references to pop culture, sarcasm, and not-so-contradictory authentic love of people, relationships, and service.

You thought, "Oh, yeah, I love to help others, too, not just in an immediate way, but in a way that creates independence and sustainability." You have very specific and eloquent thoughts, by the way.

It warmed your heart to know that I love animals, try to pet every puppy I see, and have a playful 1-year-old female orange tabby named Puck. You also laughed because you know what her names implies.

You eagerly scrolled down to read about my idealistic desire to make the world a little better than I found it by working with young children as a preschool teacher and a literacy advocate for Americorps national service. By that point, you were thinking of emailing me.

A word caught your eye as you continued to read: wheelchair. You had plenty of questions about my Cerebral Palsy, and you were honestly a bit concerned, because you didn't know what to expect physically and mentally. But your fears were soon quieted when you realized I was so easygoing and willing to talk about your questions. After you met me, you realized the only thing I couldn't do was drive, which wasn't an issue anyway thanks to the Metro.

Over time, we talked about our love of the outdoors and camping, accessible trails, music, kids, theology, our plans to improve the world. You played music for me, and I wrote poetry and lyrics for you. We took pictures often and marveled at the beauty that surrounded us.

Remember that? hasn't happened yet. Well, one of us should do something about that...

I am silly, idealistic, and romantic
What I’m doing with my life
I wanted to be a kid when I grew up, so I became a preschool teacher. I'm currently pursuing a master's in early childhood education and serving as a literacy specialist for 3 to 5-year-old kidlets.
I’m really good at
Being random, trading quips and witty reparte, and finding the good in others. I also sing and play word/board games, though I'm only really good at games if the other person is not as experienced.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. And my lifetime-insured messenger bag made entirely of seat belts. I like things that last and have a lifetime warranty. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Christopher Moore; Soul Cravings by Erwin McManus; Deborah Meier; Brian McLaren; Traveling Mercies by Anne Lamott; Anything by Richard Lederer; Everything I Ever Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten by Robert Fulghum; Children's books (particularly Dr. Seuss)

Movies: Mockumentaries (Spinal Tap; Waiting for Guffman; For Your Consideration, etc.); Princess Bride; The 10th Kingdom (technically a mini-series on NBC); Shaun of the Dead; Life is Beautiful; Emperor's New Groove; Philadelphia Story (the classic from 1940, not the similarly titled Tom Hanks movie, Philadelphia); Drop Dead Fred

Music: Flogging Molly; The Tossers; CCR; John Mayer; Sara Bareilles; Eddie From Ohio; Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band; Jason Mraz; Jennifer Knapp; The Clash; Lucinda Williams; The Cure; Social Distortion

Food: Mac and cheese; Garlic; BBQ; Brownies (fudgy, not cakey); Shepard's pie; Beer float (Young's Double Chocolate Stout with vanilla ice cream)
The six things I could never do without
1. Sense of humor

2. Music

3. Cuteness (some acceptable forms include kitties, puppies, and kids)

4. Randomness

5. Love

6. And since I live in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
God...or the man they called Brian (if you're laughing, please see 'you should message me if' below); travel destinations; how uber crossed over and became a superlative prefix in English; ways to change our current public school system
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from an all-day Americorps team meeting (they're 9-5 every Friday).
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 23–52
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You're a word geek who finds a way to sneak movie quotes into conversation. You believe that Christian theology is best discussed over beer, and you consider yourself a black sheep among the typical Christian flock. You're punny AND funny. You're idealistic and passionate about the world. You love kids (and sometimes act like the best sense of the word).
